Here's my desk on a very damp and dank Tuesday afternoon before I gave up and went to sit in front of the fire and watch a video so it hasn't been touched since.
As you can see, it's a sewing day today. My M-in-L has asked for an owl cushion for her Christmas present so I got out the fabric box yesterday and sorted out some in her colour scheme. The pattern I downloaded is not big enough so I have quartered it and extended the pieces to make another one out of newspaper. A local gift shop is selling these cushions for £18 each - seems a bit steep to me but then I remember when you could get four Black Jacks for a penny (old style) ha ha.
I have shoved my altered book/journal on the the right of the desk so that I can share the page I made last week - wish I had done a double spread now but hey ho, such is life.
The wooden boxes at the back (arrived yesterday) will be painted and decorated as Christmas presents and two will go to my nieces with the traditional chocolate coins. Not sure what I'm doing with the other two yet but at just over £2 each they were a bargain.
We got our campervan back last week, the leak has been fixed (hope I'm not jinxing it by saying that - typing with my fingers crossed ) and it's dry. The company kept it for almost two weeks waiting for it to rain so they could check the repair worked. Went for drive on Monday to Dunham Massey (NT) for a picnic and a walk, kicking leaves in the brilliant sun - you just cannot beat it but I wished I'd remembered my camera.
Sorrel loved it but wasn't as keen on the fireworks over the weekend, hid in a corner for three nights and is tired today. Here she is after her morning nap yesterday.
Have a good Wednesday and pop over to Julia's place for a bit/lot of super-cool desk surfing.
