Out of my Comfort Zone - WOYWW #198
Good morning my lovely blogging friends.
It’s that day again and Julia is ready and waiting over at the The Stamping Ground for you to add your name to Mr Linky ( if you haven’t already) and then be prepared for the influx of crafters, all eager to snoop on your work space.
For some reason I’m only managing to join in every couple of weeks at the moment. No idea really why that is but hopefully it will change soon and I’ll be here ‘full time’. I don’t know about you but I get withdrawal symptoms when I miss a week.
So what’s been happening is Sue’s Krafty Kards work room this week…………….well a combination of knitting, stitching and a little bit of paper crafting and here’s what was on my desk when I let it last night.
You can see from the picture that I had various shades of Pink and Mauve Distress Inks out as well as some stamps and dies but don’t think for a minute that you can guess what I’m doing because within an hour of taking that photo I over did things a little and it was beyond salvaging so it all ended up in the bin.
I then started from scratch with something completely different and I think I’m happy with the results but you’ll have to wait until the swap to see them.
I mentioned that I’ve been knitting again and have made two more little cardigans for my Goddaughter’s bump. Her mum told me that she’s not shy of bold colours, which I’m not sure about for a new baby and colour choice isn’t made easier when we don’t know what she’s expecting, so I decided on this lovely shade of Green.
The second one I made with the left overs from the Green and the Cream one I made a couple of weeks ago and that’s just waiting on buttons too.
Luckily there’s no time frame, because I’m a slow stitcher and you’ll see what I mean when I tell you that this is the progress after 13 hours and 50 minutes.
I don’t normally keep account of how long a project takes me to stitch but someone on another blog I follow stitched her recently and it took a total of 83 hours, that was 72 hours stitching and 11 hours beading so I thought I’d see how long she takes me.
So that’s it for another week.
I’ll be calling by later to see what you’re all up too, so get that mug of coffee ready for me.
