Wednesday again and spring is on the way as are longer days and better light, and my crocus (croci??), not to mention all the other WOYWWers desks to have a nosy at over at Julia's Stamping Ground.
So lots to be happy about and lots of different things on the go this week for me - so what's new there - journalling, paper engineering, knitting and prep work for my altered book with Elizabeth of Bluebeard and Elizabeth fame. Enough words, here's the photo.
Top left is my blog candy win from Neet in the Tim Holtz signed bag, a whole heap of goodies to play with and a very generous give-away. (As an aside see my side-bar for details of my blog candy give-away, or the previous post). Top right is the inside of the suitcase I made a few weeks ago - lid finished, more or less, on Sunday and I started the mini album for inside.
Here's a closer look.
Moving round clockwise, next is my book ready for the altering class, it only cost me 50p at the charity shop. Seems a shame to alter it but I struggled finding a book with stitched signatures. Plan to start removing the pages tomorrow so keep you fingers crossed I don't fluff it or I will be in big doo doo.
Next round is my current knitting. Jozarty sent me the pattern for her scarf/shawls and I bought the yarn on Monday and dived straight in. Then disaster struck and the end fell off my needle (why does that sound a bit rude?). Trusty Tim Holtz rode to the rescue with his glossy accents and my button box to make this repair.
Love the colours but I think the yarn I bought is a bit thicker than the one Jo uses - still will keep me nice and warm if the weather turns cooler.
The other knitting on my desk is a baby shawl I made for a forum friend. It's done in a chenille yarn and the pattern is only three rows so it knitted up quite quickly. All done now and wrapped ready for a trip to the Post Office today.
Last on is a new page in my art journal. I swirled three colours of acrylics round with my fingers and blotted with kitchen roll before adding touches of the blue and blotting. When I finished it reminded me of some stones I collected from the beach on Jersey some 25 years ago.
Here's the page...
and here's the stone...
Anyway, enough of me rabbiting on for today by the time you read this I will be journeying around the world's craft desks - managed to get round to everyone last week and left comments on over half of the blogs. lets see if I can do the same this week.
Happy WOYWW to everyone and thanks Julia for your stunning idea of a desk hop.
