Wednesday, the day when crafters all around the world share their workspaces, or in my case, my mess, care of our hostess, Julia at Stamping Ground.
This is my desk at 4:00 pm Tuesday, before the light went completely.
Not a lot to show apart from the gorgeous Clarice Cliff fabric 'hang-about' made for me by the talented and truly lovely Jozart, a Christmas present to me all the way from Japan (Mr B's cousin is an English teacher in Tokyo and his talented and beautiful Japanese wife, who is also into various crafts, sends me little treasures), isn't the leaf stunning?
What else is on my table? My prize from Crafty Individuals for the November challenge I was lucky enough to win - a new stamp plate featuring perfume bottles, a handbag mirror and a cute brooch.
Finally my attempt at a paper angel which didn't turn out at all well. The instructions are from The Paper Trail but I must have gone wrong somewhere as I can't get it to stuck together - must need stronger glue or thinner paper. This is what it should look like...linky........ and this is what I ended up with,,, oops!
Not a lot of crafting done since weekend as my little doggy has not been well since Sunday. She woke us up at 2:30 am on Monday morning barking to go out to 'get done' and we ended up sitting watching TV with a cup of tea until she settled. Did the same Monday night, only this time it was 3:30am. She's fine in herself, eating, drinking and playing but obviously has some sort of bowel upset so it was rice and fish for her supper Tuesday night (as I write) so fingers crossed we get a good night's sleep.
Finish with a photo of our craft group Christmas party on Saturday (you may recognise Jozarty and Neet of Hickydorums) as I'm lucky enough to be part of the same group of lovely people. We had great fun, especially 'pass the parcel' - ask Jo.
Neet is front left, Jo is centre, with the pink jacket and mistletoe headband, and I am to the right of Jo in the jade jumper (my favourite colour).
