WOYWW 153 - cardmaking detritus and granny square update
It's that day of the week again ... namely What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday - WOYWW - the day a great many of us take a snap of the current mess, or state of tidiness, our desk is in and reveal all to Julia, Keeper of the Desks at Stamping Ground. If you haven't done so already, feel free to hop over, click the WOYWW link on the sidebar there, and join in the fun.
Unfortunately, due to all sorts of pressures and stress - all self-inflicted of course ... I've no idea why I'm so busy, I'm retired for goodness sake!?!? - I couldn't join in last week and I missed you all ... so, no matter what, I'm joining in today. Keeping it as brief as possible, as requested by Julia, here is the state of my desk this morning.
Sorry about the glare from the camera on the craftsheet, the lighting wasn't so good when I took the photo ... the wee small hours of the morning :) As you can see there's an almost completed card, the first Christmas card I've made in a while, and all the fall-out from it lying around: bits of DP, stamp set, ribbon, syringe of glue gel, gold cord, photo glue, glue tape (there's an awful lot of glue here) greeting stamp, and the ink pad. The topper isn't finished yet, there's just a bit more to do before it can be added to the card front ... I'll post the completed card at some point later today.
Granny Square Update:
At the risk of boring you all rigid with my progress, here's the total number of squares made to date for the bed cover I'm now making for my little great-granddaughter. That's 50 squares there and, as you can see, it's pink, pink, pink! Well, with just a wee touch of colour to add interest ... I'm not sure that all little girls like pink as much as their mum's do :)
Okay, that's me reported in for this week. I'm off to get some much needed sleep, it's just after midnight here, and hopefully be up bright and early to do a bit of snooping around the desks of you willing WOYWWers.
Wishing you all a fun-filled day and a creative week ahead.
