Good morning my friends. Thank you to all those who visited last week, and your lovely kind comments. I’m so sorry I can’t leave a comment on several of your blogs. I don’t do google plus you see, and some on google plus I CAN comment on, and a few I simply can’t. Don’t understand it – but, I did manage to visit you all, and enjoyed what I saw. So, if you left me a message, and didn’t get a comment from me, I’m so sorry. Jill, I’m sorry you didn’t leave your WOYWW number, and I couldn’t find you to comment – Serif, who host my site, don’t have the facility yet of making your names a link to get straight back to your site… However, I’ll be around to you all again later today and the next couple of days – Mrs D is coming over for a coffee this morning, you see, so I don’t suppose we will get a lot done other than a good natter and catch up!

So… my desk this morning.

Not a lot that is exciting, I’m afraid. My scrap pad, a roll of low tack tape I haven’t put away, my address labels, tools, and a couple of cards almost finished for the hotel – copies of the one which didn’t even make the stand the other week!

And a view to the right of where I sit to work –

A couple more cards, my box of embossing powders (Hmm – seems I need a larger box!), a pile of Christmas newsletters which need change of address or other things doing with them, my specs, my computer with that glorious autumn picture on the screen  (taken when I went to Chatsworth Garden last year with the family), the church notice sheet (which needs completely re-thinking, so is sitting there until I do!), the notebook contains my notes from a very lengthy phonecall to CCLI – the copyright licencing authority for church music and words – boy, is copyright law complicated!!! (and extremely expensive), and some odds and ends.

So, what else have I been up to this week – well, a friend called round a couple of weeks ago saying she was sorting the attic, and would I like these for Uganda. “These” were a bag of wool and a bag of fabric. So, the colours were so glorious, I set to and made a blanket…

Aren’t those colours just great? Unfortunately, I didn’t realise when I hastily took the photo that behind the settee is an appalling shot of how lazy I am! Remember the fireplace which was taken out weeks ago?? Well, this just shows I haven’t yet painted that part of the wall – it’s still bare plaster!!! Ooops!

So that’s me this week folks. Messy, doing lots, and now have a dining table filled with the makings for 10 bags for Uganda – done three, nearly finished the fourth. Should be able to show you some of those next week…

Take care dear folk. God bless.

    That blanket for Uganda that you made from the yarn your friend gave you is going to be such a blessing. I agree, the color combo is amazing. Peace, my friend!

    Great blanket – the colours are lovely. Looking forward to seeing your bags for Uganda – I have a friend going there to teach in a few weeks time – she is currently the Principal of a Christian school in Kenya with over 700 pupils so at least she’s well used to living in Africa although where she’s going in Uganda is much more primitive.

    your right the blankets colors are beautiful together. and honestly I did not notice the wall until I read the words Margaret so, I am smiling over that and rolling my eyes. might as well wait until the weather is nice enough to have the paint fumes escape now anyways. ~Stacy #42

    Oh bother, I wrote up a comment then posted it and lost it because I hadn’t added my name and now I’ve forgotten what I said. Anyway, the colours of the blanket are gorgeous and if you hadn’t mentioned it I would not have noticed there was anything amiss behind your sofa – too busy looking at your crochet work. You are a very quick crocheter – I wouldn’t have finished a blanket in a week. Have a great week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #30

    Gosh you’ve been busy. Love the rough paper and the dandelion cards, thanks for visiting me BJ#29
    Wed, 22 Mar 2017 16:11:35

    OHmy, you ARE a busy bee… and I didn’t notice the plaster on the wall at all before you mentioned it (never do that *lol*) The blanket is beautiful. I love the color combo! Thanks for visiting my blog earlier and yes, I am visiting you in peace and quiet, pfew! Happy woyww and a big hug from Holland, Marit #25

    I just zoomed in for a closer look and I really love the dandelion card – what a gorgeous stamp that is. Your blanket is very pretty too, lovely colours. You made me laugh about your wall as I often don’t notice things until I’ve taken a photo! Thank you for stopping by mine earlier, I hope you have a lovely week, Diana #19 x

    Hi Margaret, nice to get a view of your desk, and that blanket is lovely, how fast you must have worked on that!I agree it’s funny how we spot things in photos that we didn’t see at all when taking the shot. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #5 XxXx

    I wouldn’t have noticed the bare plaster if you hadn’t mentioned it; I only had eyes for the blanket! Look forward to seeing the finished bags. Sarah #26

    Oh, I do like those colours you’ve put together for the blanket, Margaret – that looks great! The large Granny squares work really well. If we didn’t live quite so far apart, I’d come and do your painting for you..I’m almost a professional now, I’ve done that much with brush, roller and paint pad. I’m your girl 😀 Julia has booked some rooms at a B&B for September…woohoo! Hugs, LLJ 3 xxx

    Happy WOYWW. You are certainly busy. Copyright law sounds horrendous to me – I try to avoid all legal stuff now (after years of working for directors)! We have been in the farmhouse for over 3 years after its renovation, and now we are seeing cracks etc that the decorator needs to come and sort. Just had our cottage done ready for the new tenants, and now selling another property, so our own home will have to wait until later in the year and I can fully concentrate on it. Ali x #10

    Morning dear lady, not surprised you have not painted that bit, you are so busy. It sounds as if there is a lot going on down there. Love the blanket, yes, gorgeous colours. Something on the first photo caught my eye – there seems to be a lot of colour on something to the right of the photo, looks quite yummy to me. Hope you use it to make something. Please say ‘hello’ to Mrs D from me. God Bless Neet xx

    the blanket is fab! never mind behind the settee.. I wouldn’t have noticed had you not mentioned it.. the cards look beautiful too (as does your scrap pad!) Helen #2
