I actually ducked out of last week’s visit because I was trying to catch up with housework and stuff.
For some reason I was so behind but it was most likely due to the fact that I spent all day on the Monday crafting with my lovely friend Lythan at her house.
We haven’t seen each other since before Christmas so we exchanged Christmas gifts too which made it even more fun but our meeting was tinged with a little sadness because she’s moving down to Devon in July and I won’t get to see her so often.
Still there’s five months until then so we’ll have to fit in as many crafting sessions as we can between now and then!
Anyway, what’s on my desk this morning is the thing that I started when I was at Lythan’s and haven’t touched since.
When hopping around the desks the week before last I dropped into Jacqui’s blog “Jacques Junque” and watched a You Tube clip of a mini album she had made using the inside tubes from toilet rolls.
I got to thinking that it would make a nice little extra to go into my heritage album as I have quite a few photos of my Grandfathers siblings but only want to make one page for each of them in the main album. It would be such a shame not to include all the other pictures and this would seem to be the perfect solution, so I’m going to give it a go.
The papers that I’ve chosen for it are K & Co’s Blue Awning, which have a beautiful vintage look and some of the papers are textured too.
Also at the back of my desk this week you can see a plastic box which contains the finished wedding invitations I was making.
I’m just waiting for the bride to come and collect them and then I’m done for now until she gives me her list for the evening invites.
Please don’t think all the writing is smudged on the actual invitations, obviously I’ve done that so you don’t all gate crash her wedding, Lol!
For those of you who are interested in seeing some of my cross stitch projects that I’ve worked on over the years I’ve now several more projects to my other blog “I’d Rather Be Stitchin”, bringing it up to 2008.
Those I've included are a group project for a children’s hospice, my first squares for a charity group called Stitches of Love and Kindness and a project for a very special friend, so please pop across and have a look, I’d love to know what you think.
Links to latest projects added.
Please don’t take any notice of the dates on these posts, I’m in the process of putting all my old projects on in date order.
