Well, hello my friends. I’m somewhat later to the party which is WOYWW today as John and I have been trying out different routines with all the extra care he is currently needing. Which is the best order for everything that needs to be done, etc. However – here I am at last.
My workdesk today is in manic mode. You can see evidence that we have been ordering presents – hence the brown cardboard in the waste bin. There on the floor is my new big shot plus. On the desk is the back of the arran cardigan I am knitting for John ready to be photographed, the Christmas card list with pen, the piles of Christmas cards waiting to be written, the notepad giving me details on how to contact our motor insurance company to change our policy. John has taken the momentous decision to relinquish his driving licence as he feels he could be a danger on the road if a breathless attack happens whilst he is driving. A hard decision as he has always enjoyed driving. There is a plastic box bursting at the seams with my dies and stencils, some half made boxes awaiting finishing, and piles of clutter. Get Christmas done and I really MUST tidy the whole area!!!
A close up reveals the designs – very simple!! – of our Christmas cards this year. I have made around 330 cards, so the designs HAD to be simple. I still have the close family ones to make – and they will be more detailed and complex.
Some asked last week what John’s arran was going to look like…. so…ta-da…. not a complex pattern, but one he liked. So, above, is the back. I’ve now completed the back, both fronts and the first sleeve – so I’m getting there. He’s going to have to model it when finished!
If this is the first time you have arrived at this place, and think I have completely lost the plot by showing you my workdesk… well, you may be right. But – there is a purpose. What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday is a globe-wide group of crazy arty folks. Join in? Simply go to http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/ Julia will give you the hows, whys and wherefors.
That’s me this week folks. Apologies to any who left comments last week that I didn’t get back to – I can’t often comment on Google+ blogs – sorry. I do visit.
Take care my friends. God bless.
