Good morning to all my blogging friends. I'm pleased to say at last I'm feeling a bit better. Think it was rather more than a head cold cos it really sapped all my energy and that of course wasn't helped by my huge sewing mountain that needed doing. I have a feeling I know what brought all that sewing to my door last week too....I'd been to our local material shop and bought enough material to make me two new tops.
Here is a quick snap of my fabric but needless to say I've only got it out of the bag to show you! It's like the old saying...'A cobbler's wife walks barefoot'. They will get made some time but I doubt they won't be finished any time soon.
But I will say this is what my 'to do' rail looked like at the end of my busy week. :-)
Twiglet came down Monday morning and we actually got out our embellishers to play. It's been ages since we used them but it was like riding a bike....you never forget how [except when it comes to riding a bike I never really learned :-) ]. We got out all the boxes of yummy fabrics and yarns hoping for inspiration.
I'm not sure the session was really successful for me but I did make a strip of
tat dumfling yumminess and cut it up to make Christmas trees with.....Yes I have actually been thinking CHRISTMAS! A bit of stitching and a few beads and I think I've cracked it :-)
I thought I'd also show you what my eldest daughter has bought me. She likes to find me crafty bits and has certainly come up trumps with this selection. It was an early birthday pressie and she insisted I opened it so she could see my reaction :-) As you can imagine I was thrilled....Thank you M and B xx
Now if you are all wondering what my desk looks like today....who cares :-) I'm not in my sewing room cos I have my two gorgeous little friends here for another play day with Nanny so the sewing can wait :-) My desk for today will be covered with toys, jigsaws, books etc and I know we will have just the best of fun.
If you want to see more crafting desks then pop over to Julia's blog and if you haven't joined in before why not take the plunge....It's a really lovely group of crafters and everyone is welcome.
