Hello my friends – I really want to apologise to so many of you… Last week I visited everyone, but simply could not leave comments on an incredible number of posts. I don’t know what blogger or google was playing at. Let me say now how much I enjoyed what you had on show – and what fun I had seeing everything. I’ll hope for better success this week!!! Claire made the comment last week that the font was different and she couldn’t read it. I have just been trying to make it bold for you, but it keeps crashing the whole programme, so we’ll try simply making it larger in the hope that helps…
So, straight in – my desk this week…
Taken late Tuesday evening, with some signs of activity. I have been actually making some bits and pieces
…one of which has been a pergamano piece. So many folk use the grids these days I thought I would try one. Concentrated so hard on getting the grid right, I completely forgot to do things in the right order! – Honestly, anaesthetic has a lot to answer for!! – so, I worked all the design on the small butterfly, then worked the backing piece – and THEN tried to colour the back of the second piece!! Should have done it first, of course, so it has left all sorts of marks – and I reckon it will need doing again!
Slightly more successful were a few cards…
Bottom right was made using one of the brusho pieces from the other week. The rest were all simple stamped pieces – some more liked than others! Not at all sure about the one with the bells – it’s a bit “in your face” for me.
However, more activity has been the completion of the blanket I was working on using some of that gorgeous yarn given to me at Christmas… I still have almost a whole ball left yet, Chris!
…Large enough for a single bed it will go toward the rest heading out for Uganda.
The other end of the desk today is most definitely very different… a complete shambles.
Hmm – let’s see what we have here. Lens cover on top of a notepad, Shevet Achim calendar (the piece with the yellow and red heart), given to me today, and already a month late; knitting (a jumper – do you remember those lovely sweaters years ago where it all looked woven?, well, that’s what I fancied doing); the pile of books maps and notepad for planning my summer caravanning trips (still there unfinished); two box files with all sorts in them, computer monitor displaying the googly eyes placed all over my home by the grandies aided and abetted by my two daughters. I love them and refuse to get rid of them…(the googly eyes, that is!)
So that’s me this week folks, plodding on here on the North Wales coast, having enjoyed seeing the snow up here.
Take care of yourselves. God bless.
