I'm sure Wednesdays come around more often than they used to, but it's What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday over at Julia's again, so here is the great reveal of today's workspace ... photographed exactly as I left it last night (except for the addition of this morning's highly necessary cup of coffee)! I've either caught another cold, or got the old one back again, and feel stupid today ... all expressions of sympathy gratefully received, self pity not being encouraged in this house!!
Current preoccupations are demonstrated here - on the right is the card I've just finished making for my Secret Sister in the USA. This is a fun project run by Split Coast Stampers where you send someone cards and little gifts over a four month period, all anonymously, and in your turn receive from someone else. At the top of the cutting board is my pink rose - a first attempt at the 3D roses which are all the rage at the mo, this one done with double sided paper and a flower from the George Cricut cartridge. Works pretty well too!
The flower brooches are there because last night I was finishing sewing the brooch backs onto them. I knitted several in a variegated Patons yarn made specially for felting, and below you can see the before and after pictures. They are knitted on biggish needles then you put them in the washing machine on a hot setting, and they come out felted and shrunk, as on the right.
So now I'm off to see what everyone else has been up to and nurse my germs a bit. Bah humbug. Still the sun is just about shining out there, so Pollyanna here will do her best to be grateful for the good things in life ... like whisky, chocolate and stash shopping :)
