WOYWW #170 - You’ve been Framed
A photo of my desk in the sunshine, now there’s a rare thing, Lol!
It’s deceiving thought because when I put my bins out this morning it was decidedly nippy so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it will warm up a bit later and I can grab an hour in the garden with my cross stitch or reading.
Before I show you what’s on my desk today I’ll just give you a little update on my eye situation.
I was at the hospital on Monday and had the laser treatment to remove part of the secondary cataract that had grown and I’m pleased to say it went well and no pain or discomfort, so that was a bonus.
My sight improved almost immediately but because it was thicker than they first thought I have a lot of little floaters in my eye from the debris left behind after the treatment but they tell me that they will settle down in a day or two which I hope is correct because it’s distracting……like lots of little black flies buzzing around me.
My only worry now is that one of the side effects of the treatment can be a delayed retinal detachment (which I had in the first place and started the whole nightmare off) so it’s a waiting game and only time will tell, so fingers crossed it doesn’t happen again.
So now it’s back to crafting for me big time and here’s what I have to show all you Whatsonyourworkdesksaholics (I’ve just invented a new word, Lol) who congregate over at The Stamping Ground every Wednesday.
All I can say about this today is that it's all Trish’s fault because until she sent me all those lovely paints and the canvas a few weeks back I had never ventured into the realms of Acrylic paint but now, here I am altering a picture frame and getting very messy with it.
I wanted to make a little gift for my Slimming world consultant who is leaving us this week, to say thank you for the support she’s given me over the last Eight months, because without her help to keep me on track (most of the time) I don’t think I would have lost the two stone that I have.
As soon as I saw the chart for this little cutie I knew it was just right for Emma because she’s surrounded by all the good thing we can eat on our plan, Pasta and fresh veggies.
Maybe not the cake she seems to be making but we can pretend she’s whipping up an omelette, Lol!
I’m still not sure what I’m doing with the frame, it will evolve as it goes along I'm sure, so pop back in a day or two and you’ll see how it turned out.
Also on my desk this week are the lovely pile of LOTV stamps that I was lucky enough to win. I’ve not used them yet other than to stamp out the images you see in each packet but I really do need to make a start on ‘Christmas’ so over the next few weeks I’m guessing they are going to get a good bashing.
Well, I have nothing else to report so I’ll say ‘Happy Crafting’ for now and I’ll be stopping by later to see what masterpieces everyone is working on this week.
See you in a while.
Update - You can see the finished frame here.
