Morning lovely crafters and dear WOYWW friends. I'm back on the register this week after getting all those pesky jobs that had been hanging around finished last week. If you want to join in too then pop over to see the Desk Headmistress, Julia, HERE.
It's a bit chilly in The Craft Garden today as our boiler of 23 years has decided to curl up and retire at last. Can't say it owes us anything really but why do they pick the Winter to do it. So it's extra layers and hot water bottles for awhile as British Gas are so busy it's going to be a week or so before we can have a lovely new shiny new one.
Anyway, you came by to see a desk so I'd better show you one.
I am in the middle of more DT work at the minute but Mr Mojo has decided to have a break so I thought I'd have a change and play with some new stamps that were just asking to be inked up. Sometimes a change can spark off the old creativity again. I've been dying to try out some new flexmarkers that just fell into my basket during a visit to Hobbycraft last week. They were the bargain price of £7.50 for 6. They are hair and skin tones, something you can never have enough of I find.
While I was taking my desk shot, this caught my eye and made me smile. Not the coffee cup that had just contained my morning cappuccino fix but the purple liquid in the jar. Bet that would make an interesting colour for a drink. I've been painting with purple H20's and it had made the water a lovely colour. I am also trying to keep off the chocolate and be healthy by munching dried apricots instead!
Right, I'd better go and make myself respectable for work but before I do I thought I'd just share with you the finished Lillybo quilt from last week complete with it's fleecy backing. The sewing machine is now firmly back in the cupboard and I don't think it'll be seeing the light of day again any time soon. Sewing is definitely not my thing but I'm pleased I managed to complete the two quilts for Jo's wonderful cause. They are now packed up and winging their way over the Pennines.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Wednesday whatever you are up too.
