Good Morning WOYWWers, Followers, and All,
It's Wednesday again time to hop around other folks desks, oohing and gasping at the revelations thereon, and all because the Queen of Desks, Julia over at the Stamping Ground, has made it all possible. Not taken the plunge yet, not dared to bear all, so to speak, then now's the time to join in. Simply click on the WOYWW logo on the sidebar and prepare to be transported to a ton of crafty workdesks around the world.
And after all that, here's mine this morning.
The most noteworthy item on my main crafty desk today is the ray of sun ... it's going to be another lovely day :)
This week there has been a lot of chat with crafty friends about sewing and the various pros and cons of sewing machines and this has prompted me to dust mine off with the intention of practising on some card and paper - so far all attempts have been pathetic and fit only for the bin but I'm not going to give up without a fight this time.
Just behind the basket of punches, temporarily relocated to make room for the sewing machine, is a green tote bag I've resurrected from the garden shed. After a spin in the washing machine, it's come out almost as good as new and is now holding lots of crafty tools.
On the other worktop is my craft iron, Cuttlebug, and a pile of embossed sheets of waxed paper. I'm trying out the technique as demoed by Ali Reeves on TV. So far it's not gone too well. Ali uses her masks for this technique but my attempt with one was less than successful. So late last night the embossing folders came out and I had a great time passing them through the Bug, got quite carried away and probably did too many, all with the intention of doing a bit of ironing today ... probably the only time I will ever willingly plug in an iron :)
Before I go, just a quick update on how my sister, Margaret, is. She's is off oxygen and all the various drips and over the worst. Apparently, full recovery will take some time so she has been transferred to another hospital, one that, as she has MS, Margaret is very familiar and comfortable with, to begin her recuperation. For a while there it was touch and go, we all had a huge scare, but, thankfully, Margaret has won through and we can all breathe a great big sigh of relief :) Many thanks to everyone who sent her their good wishes - all those kind vibes obviously had the desired affect :))
The Boss woke me just after 5 this morning, being sick on the hall rug ... her sense of time and place is impeccable! So now it's 8am and I need another cuppa, and my muesli and yoghurt, before I can settle down to visit as many of you as is possible.
Happy WOYWW to you all,
