Good grief! It’s that bad penny!! I have been MIA for so long. I realise I haven’t posted since the week before Christmas – and we are now a third of the way through March! Sorry, my friends. Life has been a bit silly – I spent January doing virtually no craft work at all, couldn’t get my head in gear. Most of February was spent down in Buckinghamshire caring for my daughter and her family following an op. She is now back driving, so I could come home! March (and the odd day in January and February) has been spent manically trying to make 170 cards for several outlets. I have just this morning counted them… SUCCESS! Done it! Phew. So, to my desk – the very reason we are here…
Hmmm… looks amazingly tidy. Can’t imagine why, ‘cos in reality, it’s not. Ah – just looked at the real thing – the worst bit is off the bottom of the picture. Obviously couldn’t face the chaos when I took this first thing Tuesday morning. So, glue – still upside down; an empty cutting mat; glass cutting mat with scrap paper for stamping, ruler, scissors, blade; a tin ofmetallic cpencils; new CD player – basic, but it works. My old one died the death; family photo – three years out of date now, but no less loved because of that. The youngest of the grandies is 14 today – which makes me feel incredibly elderly!; box of peel offs; large plastic basket with all the completed cards. A triumph I reckon.
So, that’s me, apart from having made a blanket whilst with my daughter, knitting a cardigan for a two year old, doing some jigsaws – family fun at Christmas, and I now have started another blanket. Still stash busting – and still failing on that score. The trouble is, I shopped in Aldi when with my daughter – and their yarn is just so lovely… yes, you’ve got the picture. But I have to say, the large red bag of yarn does look just a weensy bit emptier..
