Last week I spent time with my Mum who was here for a week so have been trying to catch up with crafty things. We took Mum home Saturday and came back early on Sunday which turned to be a good idea ( Mum didn't think so as she wanted me to stay longer :-) ) as we got back to a lot more snow and it took DH an hour, with help of neighbours to get car back on drive! It then snowed for rest of afternoon and most of Monday. Yesterday drive etc cleared again and I managed to get to Sugarcraft and we got car back on drive. More snow last night and this morning. We will see if we make it out and back tomorrow.
To my desk etc etc.
As you an see it's al on the dining table this week.
had to crop this one as I'd left an address on there - hadn't realised. A mess really I'd just finished maing a couple of cards.
Now at end of table :-) you can see why I needed so much space . Some hearts I've been paintinfg ready to decorate - maybe for a stall with my DIL. Some stamps I need to put away. To left the squares I knitted for the charity blanket but have only just had chance to sort out. Decided to wash them and pin out as some were not quite as squarish as others - not sure my plan will work.
Anyway if you want to see some other more interesting desks and join in the fun pop along to
Here is my mum's card - I did see something similar somewhere on net. Sorry I can't remember where.
The card below was for a couple who lost their baby at 19 weeks just before Christmas. We have just heard about it. She worked with my husband on a work placement when she was a student and they have kept in touch via email. When my dad died she baked us a cake for the wake - so sweet of her. Inspired by a layout I saw.
Finally in case you live where it is warm and sunny and you need to chill - the view from my front door today.
Will be back later to say hi to as many as I can. Sorry if I didn't visit all who made it over to me last week. Blame it on Mum. :-) x
