Hi deskers 
Welcome to Fairythoughts Grotto .... Grotty more like. . . .   
Not much movement on my desk this week, where does the time go ?

In the interest  of variety. . . . . . . . The long shot

The close up

Not really much different to last week........... we had DD1, SIL and the little man to stay over the weekend. Painting at the crockery but nothing at home until Tuesday.
A little progress  has been made on the glasses box ... I added some tissue to the lid ... Wow !
The background is still there at the back.... I might try and use it this week in my DLP (2 1/2  weeks behind now ). so too are the craft stamper ... plus the latest issue I haven't read either.
Today I found time to do a quick make for a work colleague who has a 'big' birthday, she is quite new and we didn't realise until Monday so I had to get a wiggle on and make quite simple.

Just a small reference to her age . . . . . . she is a keen sewer and works in the haberdashery dept. . . . . where I work.

Anyway that's about it for me  . . . I'm going to concentrate on watching the new Dave Gorman programme on DAVE  (Tuesday eve) ...update! ... do try and watch the repeat it's very funny.

Don't forget to drop by Julia's place   where you will find this weeks roll call. . . to visit lots more interesting desks.

Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment and I will try and visit you back if you leave your number, through the week .... if my spelling is a bit odd I am probably in the gym . . . .  its not easy to type while on the stepper or bike . ha ha.
