this week Wednesday seems to have arrived a day earlier.
Julia Dunnit over at the stamping-ground. blog says show us your desks, so here it is.
Beware if you pop over to look, it is very addictive!
Quick apologies to anyone I didn't get back to last week, especially Elizabeth (always like to congrat first past the post... stupid blogger and that white screen, just couldn't get past it
I normally have Tuesday to play at my desk, but this week I had to change my days and work. ( But I do get to play with crafty stuff at work , so it's not so bad ).
Anyway consequently there is not much going on my desk this week,
It is not so much Stamping ground. . . more like dumping ground. The C & H bag has some lovely pink bamboo yarn I have just started knitting for my Grandaughter.
There is a big heap of craft magazine to sort through, (I have read some of them!) and hopefully make something from.
I decided this year to try to make at least one thing inspired by every magazine I buy. It is not going well, maybe I should buy less magazines (said out loud by my handyman!!!!!!)
At the weekend I started a small memory book for my nephew who got married in November.... I've done the front cover. . . . well done, well done!!!! ( slight touch of sarcasm).
The wedding was at the Clock Barn so it seems fitting to use that as a theme.
I also made this bracelet at the weekend; Haberdashery fans out there might like it. I can't claim it as my design, I saw something similar in a mixed media jewellery book.
In my version I have cut the tape measure in half lengthways, so there were more pieces to weave. It took almost a whole tape. I also used the metal end as a focus for the fastening, a popper on the inside.
The only problem with it is it is a bit scratchy!! well can't win them all!
Ok now I'm off to see lots of other, more inspiring desks than mine, see ya !
janet . . . . aka fairy thoughts
P.S since I wrote that last night I cleared the desk at 2 am and made 4 tags for a craft swap. . . ah the menopause so good for creativity and midnight crafting. Dont have time to put piccy on now ... off to work, happy days
