Hello my friends. I do trust this finds you well, and not hitting the overload button getting ready for Christmas. As so many of you guessed last week, yes, once I had finished making those wee boxes with Camilla and Denise (they will be given out this Thursday at step inside)… I moved on to the next thing on my to-do list. Not many dull moments here on the North Wales coast! So, this was my desk when I started on Tuesday morning.
Not a lot of natural light – but here are some large, 8inch tall, boxes I’m putting together for my family to carry their Christmas present. There is the usual clutter on the desk, the die set, a box awaiting folding, low tack and Double sided tapes, scissors, tweezers, glue – still upside down – and a couple of completed boxes. By 4 pm Tuesday afternoon the desk looked like this!
Still no natural light – it has been fairly dark most of the day, although there was a big golden ball appeared in the sky for a few minutes round lunchtime. Yes there is a difference in the photos – I’m now on box 5. They are all different colours, with a different set of embellishments.
This is really a quite fantastic die set – tonic – and around 29 dies in the set. It cost an absolute fortune, but I decided it was worth splashing out as I will use it a lot.
A great investment, I think. Of course, I don’t actually spend all my days up on my landing! (Oh, I wish I could) I do come downstairs occasionally and visit the lounge where I am trying to stash bust my yarn collection. Failing again – although with this blanket I haven’t bought extra yarn – but it was close!!!
So that’s it from me, folks. I wish you the very best of Christmases. May you know the gift of the season – God, coming to earth as a baby, born in a country ruled over by harsh leaders, to an unmarried mother, in poverty. Emmanuel – God with us. How good and precious that He understands!
God bless you all. Take care.
