I hope all is well and good with you today. Once again, thank you so much for all your lovely comments, I enjoy reading them, of course, and appreciate you taking the time to leave them.
Wednesday again! Time for me to join in with Head Desker, Julia, over at Stamping Ground for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.
It's been another busy week and I'd like to say that it's been a productive one craftwise, but, no, it just has not. The Christmas album is still a work in progress, as is the giant crochet square and the miniscule bit of embroidery I'm working on. But today I have other irons in the fire, so to speak. I'm almost overdue on the project you can see in it's various parts on my craft desk: stamps, inks, marker pens, and a sheet of Clarity coated postcard. The brayer is getting an airing today; it's many months since that has happened. I just hope I remember how to use it! The notepaper with instructions on how to make a mini book, from a 12"x12" sheet of cardstock, is nothing to do with the proposed project ... but I just might get around to making it up one day ... it's all one day with me at the moment!!!
The fluffy stuff is out again and, in answer to LLJ's question of last week, this is a puff paint that, when gently heated, puffs up. It's available in various colours though I only have the white. Depending where it is used, it can give the appearance of snow, white fur, clouds, or anything else you can think of that looks fluffy and puffy.
On the sewing table I have stuff sorted out to applique tartan flowers and butterflies on to a plain tote bag. Now that folks in England have to pay for carrier bags, I thought I'd make this for my youngest sister who lives in London. The shapes have been cut out of Bondaweb using the dies that can just about be seen sitting on top of the little black drawer set in the first photo. Next step is to iron them on to the fabric and cut them out ready to apply to the front of the bag.
The giant granny square throw in my favourite autumnal shades.
Reviving a long forgotten skill - that is, long forgotten by me!
I haven't embroidered for something like 50 years. I'm planning to incorporate this little piece into a patchwork needle case - that'll be one day when it's finished, of course!
