WOYWW #171 - Another Year Older
OK, it's just a few days older, but Sunday was a bit special as I was born in 1956 and this birthday was my 56th, so if ever there was a reason to celebrate, that was it and I want all my regular WOYWW friends to be a part of the celebrations too.
My Blogaversary managed to slip by somehow in July without me noticing, so I’ve decided instead to have some Birthday Candy if you're up for it. I'm not sure what it’s going to be yet but I’ll pick a winner from everyone who visits my blog and leaves me a massage this week and announce the winner next week. By then I should have something together to send to you.
Now then, onto the reason we are gathered here this bright but chilly Wednesday morning and unveil me desk for you to see.
There’s not actually very much going on at the moment but I’ve been getting a few Christmas bits together and today's the day I make a start on the long list of Christmas cards I have to do each year.
After winning the all those lovely LOTV stamps I thought I would also treat myself to their new set of Christmas Grungy Messages and two of their Christmas paper stacks, so they are sitting ready and waiting along with a pad from Hobbycraft and Do Crafts and a Goody Bag from Craftworks Cards, so that little lot should keep me going for a while.
Over to the Left, just behind my box of Promarkers you can see my sewing machine which is seeing the light of day for the first time in years I think!
After dusting it off ….boy was it thick………I was using it to make up some of those little pillows for the advent calendar that I showed you last week.
The stitching still continues in the evenings while I’m watching TV and I now have six completely finished. Just 36 motifs left to stitch equating to 18 little pillows to make up……should get it done before December……..I hope.
All I have to do now is find some very simple instructions for making up the quilted backing that they will all hang against.
The Stamping Ground is the place to go if you want to link your desk for the weekly blog hop that is What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday, so pop across and join in, but beware, it’s very addictive.
