Hello my friends. Welcome to this week’s offering of What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday. Want to know more? Then go to http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/ Find a world of artists and crafters willing to show the mess/creative order on their desks.
My desk this week has been spectacularly uncreative – a little work on some boxes for Christmas, but that is it. The reason? Well, having had a glorious day out last Tuesday, I was dialling 999 again by Thursday morning. John was admitted over the weekend – but not with another infection – for which we are both very thankful. No, he was so clogged with phlegm one side of his lungs couldn’t get any air. It was scary – for us both. However, he is home again – and I have learned a further life skill – Physiotherapy! Whilst he was being safely cared for in hospital, I had a sleepover with my grandchildren – awful journeys as the whole of the British population seemed to be on the M6 motorway at the same time as me; great fun; lots of noise and chatter; disastrously hilarious when the airbed deflated in the middle of the night (and I didn’t dare re-inflate it ‘cos of the noise the pump made!) – but I really enjoyed myself.
So, not a lot of crafting done – but some asked last week to see a close-up of the boxes I have made. They really are not difficult to make, take most of a 12 by 12 inch piece of thick paper or thin card, and have a variety of insert shapes for a trellis work pattern in the sides or top. A gift inside the box, ribbon to tie through the slots at the top, and there is the most delightful Christmas gift.
So that’s me this week, folks. Not much to report. I did my utmost to reply to all who visited last week – but, I’m really sorry, Sophie, I just couldn’t manage to comment on your post. I don’t do Google+, so it doesn’t let me comment 🙁 Take care my friends.
