As we all know by now Wednesdays see us all hopping from desk to desk for What’s on your Workdesk Wednesday and it seems all the more appropriate this morning as its Leap Year Day.
For anyone who has a birthday today, I wish you a very Happy Birthday and hope that you have a very special day.
It’s just a quick post from me this morning as I’m waiting for a friend to arrive and then we are off out.
My desk this morning is as I left it last night…….yes, it’s almost clear for once so I thought I would give you a wider shot of my craft room, but please ignore the fact that I failed to put the vacuum cleaner over in there and that the wall paper is coming off under the window……..I really should redecorate)
On my table is a small pile of bits and pieces that I picked up in The Range yesterday. Nothing too exciting, just some foam pads, a permanent adhesive roller and some White tissue papers because I want to have a go at making some tissue tape. There’s also a New Leaf 8 x 8 paper Pad which I’ve had my eye on for a while now and the new Papermania Bookprint paper pack.
At the Right of the table are a pile of cards I finished at the weekend and are waiting to go in the post.
I can’t take credit for this last card because it’s an almost exact copy of a card in an old copy of Cardmaking and Papercraft, designed by Marlene Ashby.
Now, I can hear you all saying, what on earth is a TUSAL when it’s at home.
Well, it’s an acronym for Totally Useless Stitch-a-Long….a sort of WOYWW for stitchers and the idea is that once a month you post a picture of your thread clippings or ORT’s (Old Ratty Threads), so sitting on my computer desk this morning is my very first TUSAL.
You can read more about TUSAL Here if you’re interested and fancy joining in the fun.
There’s also a collection of free cross stitch kits sitting my desk that I’ve been scanning. I used to be able to work directly for the original chart but these days I find I struggle to read them, so I now enlarge them to A4.
So, I’m off shopping now but I’ll be back later today to see what everyone is up to this week.
