Hello my friends.
I do trust this finds you well, and enjoying good health, good weather, and good craft time. Having been away for ten days, I confess this post is a bit of a photo-fest – but I think you will understand why when you look through…
So, without further ado, my desk this week
To be honest – at the start of last Wednesday, my workdesk was the top of the boxes, and only became the top of the sideboard at the weekend!… yes, I’ve been with Mr and Mrs D helping them move into their new home. We managed the kitchen, utility room and half of the lounge before strength, energy and everything else, ran out!
The kitchen diner is enormous – so was the best place to work. We didn’t even find a tablecloth for the dining table, just a packing blanket – and as you can see, the cooker didn’t work – that was delivered at 11pm one day! So… meals were cooked…
… down on Essence – the canal boat. Then carried up to the house. Almost like cooking on a campfire, out there in the glorious countryside.
It wasn’t TOO far to carry everything! And outside the door are the remnants of our hard work – just a few of the cartons, now filled with sufficient paper to set up our own fish and chip shop serving everyone in the village!, or folded boxes or even bubblewrap! Adrian had already done one tip run with around 8 or 9 boxes!
On Monday I came home – calling in on friends on the way… to be given…
And inside these lovely boxes?
31 bags for Bibles, ready to go out to Uganda… and…
25 glorious knitted dolls for the children
Can you guess who I found in the house with these goodies??
Our very own Annie and Jo. I know you don’t do these things to be given thanks, girls… but you are going to receive a HUGE, public thank you from me, on behalf of Parental Care Ministries. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Annie had also made these lovely monster bags, with shorter straps. We decided that the children wouldn’t understand the motif… so Annie has given them to be sold and the money go out to Uganda instead. Any takers? Let me know and I will get them out to you. How much do you think folk will pay for these fun bags??
So that’s been my week folks! Busy, messy, fun, meals out with Adrian and Chris, and lots of blobbing in front of the TV in the late evenings – once we had found it and the remote!
Before I went away I suddenly, one night, woke up, knowing exactly what my ATCs were going to be… so I set to and have made 18. 6 are spoken for – but if anyone would still like to swap with me… I know I made a comment on Neet and Shazsilverwolf’s blogs about the possibility of swapping – if you would still like to swap ladies, I can do it (Not included you in the 6 already spoken for, as I couldn’t at that time commit)
That’s me done this week. Sorry about all the pics – the only way to show I had actually done things.
Take care all. God bless you.
