Up, Up & Away - WOYWW #195
It’s yet another cold, dull and dreary Wednesday morning but the bright ray of sunshine comes from the fact it’s the day I visit my What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday friends.
The mess……sorry, I mean creativeness on their desks always brings a smile and brightens my day , I can tell you!
My week has mostly consisted of a little paper crafting and a lot of cross stitching and here’s what’s on my desk this morning.
I finally managed to sorted out some papers to scrap the photo of my big brother and ended up buying a First Edition ‘Up, Up & Away pad, not particularly vintage looking I know, but I just loved the colour combination and decided to go with it. I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet on the LO but so far done some fussy cutting of the circle in the corner and have decoupaged it. I just need to sort out some embellishments and hopefully I’ll be up and running.
The only other paper crafting this week has been a few more cards for the LillyBo Quilt Project and they will be going in the post this morning.
I also think these are perfect to enter into Di’s 'Pixies Crafty Snippets' challenge as I’ve used up loads of offcuts for them as well as odd pieces of ribbon.
Stitching wise, I made a concerted effort to finish off the ‘Time and Season’ s sampler and I’m happy to report that the last stitch went in on Saturday evening. You can see the finished piece over at I’d Rather Be Stitchin’.
I had a load of threads left over from the sampler and decided to use them for another sampler, a much smaller one this time, and started on in straight away………it’s funny how I can’t be without a bit of cross stitch on the go……….and this is where I got to last night.
Just the word April to add and then that one’s done too and I’ll be ready to start my next Celtic Lady.
If you stop by my stitching blog please take the time to leave a message, I love to read your comments and I’ll be by to call in on you soon.
Have a great day and ………..
