I wish you a very happy new year – welcome to 2019 – and, to…
… the 500th edition of the round the world blog group of art and craft addicts hosted by the delectable Julia of http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ A wonderful group of people who bare their workdesks each Wednesday for the world to see. Congratulations, Julia – this must surely be one of the longest running blog groups on the web!!! So, in honour of the occasion – some photos of my desk and my recent work…
I’m still struggling with these changes which have recently happened here, so I have no idea how many titles this post will have!! – sorry
Some of my Christmas presents, not yet tried or put away, and also some sale items from a little retail therapy – “all Christmas items half price” – well, I mean, they just fall into your basket, don’t they???
A little further along the desk – specs case, hand cream, some techniques I watched on you tube and wrote down the instructions, 3 (yes – three!) diaries, the Caravan Club handbook listing all their large and small sites – thinking about going away in the caravan as soon as April appears, so am thinking ahead – the master list of rotas for church – ready for this week’s notice sheet, and a copy of the previous sheet, now out of date. Not a lot of action! But the desk did see action leading right up to Christmas…
A couple of birthday cards – now sent and received – one fairly simple, made by colouring a preformed tag shape with metallic pencils. The other more complex – lots of layers and pockets!
My house guests are currently staying with family in Cheshire over Christmas and the new Year, so I’m on my own now I am back from Nottingham. Time for the obligatory jigsaw!
Let’s just say it wasn’t easy, shall we? The pieces didn’t fit together very well and the sky nearly defeated me!
So that’s me here on the North Wales coast – having had a wonderful Christmas with my family. I wish you every blessing for 2019. As we walk into a new year I am reminded of part of the poem “Gate of the year” by Minnie Louise Haskins.
“And I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year: “Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.” And he replied: “Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God. That shall be to you better than light and safer than a known way.” “
Take care. God bless.
