Anyway my desk - well the table is a tip as I am now trying to make some stuff for a Charity Christmas Fair that I rashly agreed to take part in - I really should engage brain before opening mouth but I never learn.
Yesterday morning the table/room were all tidy - after I'd cleared up the aftermath of my all day workshop - didn't last long - being tidy I mean.
Above was trying out some ideas for gift tags.
Below a view all along the table!!!
The hearts are a project I am also working on - hopefully more of that later.
So that's it for my desk. Not heard of WOYWW - surely there's no one left that hasn't - or not joined in yet then pop along to Julia's Blog and join in.
I will visit anyone who visits me and all those ending with same number as me. Below the etc etc if you're interested.
The etc etc
Since I last posted it has all been happening - well when doesn't it? To think I thought I might get bored if I retired lol
Thursday 30th October - went to see consultant re my knee and the arthroscopy . Apparently the cartilage was torn and had been catching between bones - hence awful pain. I found out that they had shaved the cartillage. However the arthritis in right side of same knee is bad :-( so to cut a long story short - one day when I can't stand pain, loss of mobilty etc etc than I will be a candidate for a knee replacement.
After the trip to hospital went to have tea with my granddaughter as it was her 5th birthday. Lots of fun.
31st October decorate cake for GD's birthday party on the Sunday also get ready for eldest son and family to arrive for weekend. Went to youngest son's house, eldest and family arrive and children have tea. DH and I come home. Sons, wives and children get dressed up and go to visit my friend for trick and treat fun. All back here and children watch DVD adults have a take away and chill. All children stop the night!
1st Nov - eldest GD up at 6.15!!!! Not long before rest arrive downstairs. Later they all go out so that I can prepare for evening. All arrive back, get dressed up again and go for spooky walk in woods, call at another friend's house and then bring him back and we all have dinner - Halloween party for children.
2nd Nov - we all meet up for lunch for GD's birthday. After lunch eldest son and family return to Yorkshire and we came home to collapse :-)
Had a wonderful time though. That was the short version!!!!
Phoebe's cake - not very good light.
Monday 3rd Nov - out all day with friends.
Tuesday 4th Nov - sugar craft then out for lunch
5th, 6th, 7th Nov preparing for all day class here ( oh and a morning shopping)
Let the card making begin!!! Had 8 ladies here and they made 24 cards each. Some were fairly simple and they made mulitiples of those designs and then 6 individual ones. my friend made lunch which was amazing- chicken tagine, roasted veg , couscous, homemade bread for dipping. Two deserts and biscuits for morning coffee and cake for afternoon tea. DH made special coffees for anyone who wanted them and also tidied up. Had a great time but boy was I tired when I sat down that night. Photos to follow!
Above tables ready and waiting. I made goody bags and little gifts for everyone.
Some ladies at work.
Some finished cards
And finally - if you've lasted this long
