CONGRATULATIONS AND CELEBRATIONS.....
I'm looking forward to visiting desks today but it will be after the visit of the lovely Hettie, who's coming to visit...it's been ages since we last met.
There has been a reasonable amount of crafty goings-on at the desk these past few days. My friend Helen (she of Knitted Boobs fame) came round for a coffee last week and was more than happy to be dragooned into some serious cutting out for me:
Oh but she had a lovely time! Once she'd got through what I'd sorted out, the riffling through my scraps box commenced; the next hour was spent cutting out co-ordinating fabrics for tissue pack holders...there would be a squeal as another good combination of colours was found. We had lots of fun and chatting may have been involved :-D Helen is my oldest friend, we've known each other since we were 11 and started grammar school together. She's seen me through my rebellious teenage years and is still friends with me!! It's good to be back in my old home town and see more of her x
This was the desk yesterday. I'm making a whole load of tissue holders, sunglasses cases, small zippy bags etc for a couple of charities. I'm in Production Line Mode, it's quicker that way. The fabrics were fat quarters that I got in a family Secret Santa last Christmas - I wouldn't have chosen these myself but am really enjoying the colours. Something a bit different!
I received a parcel on Monday - inside was this:
The most gorgeous mug! With a hare...swoon! But there were no details about who sent it. So I rang up Little Weaver Arts (whose logo was on the bottom of the mug) who sell gorgeous homewares and asked if they could help - the very lovely lady who answered the phone told me it was a Secret Squirrel present and she was under orders not to reveal who had sent it to me!! Friends on FB didn't own up and so if it was a desker, then Thank You! I love it xx
Hope you like the new header, I had fun doing that. Hope you all have a wonderful time moseying around the desks today. Long may the crafty madness continue.....
