What's on your Workdesk Wednesday - (with Freebie!)
When I was discharged and on the way home we stopped at a garden centre and stumbled across a craft corner - and SALE! Mega-goodies and bargains - what a fab treat after the last week.
So nowt new on my blog until today... Despite everything being all over the shop as we say - I shall blog, I shall babble, and I shall bag...I use bag as a verb as it has been an intense two days trying to finish my Claudine Helmuth project for this week...It was originally a project to jazz up a vest top but I wanted to do a bag. It was all fine until the sewing machine stitching started looking like fungi and I sewed the handles to the bag three times. I did get an A in this at school - really. Anyway it is the left-over bits of my sticky-back canvas decorated with the faux batik technique. Then it is random stitching and a few buttons (yes mum - it is supposed to look like that...) Despite some major stumbling blocks - I got there and as Monty Python would say - "And now for something completely different..." It is a swing in a very different direction compared to my usual thing but I lurve sewing anyway. I am quite pleased and glad to be fighting with needles and thread instead of drip cables and stands!
Next week I am off on my hols up to lovely Harrogate - staying closer to home due to the last week but still excited as I get to snoop around the Art from the Heart shop all week - and - I am doing two workshops there !!! Happy jumps and little squeals...So next week is all luxury, Betty's tea-shops and shopping in York. What more can a gal want? So my WOYWW blog entry might be on tour next week...!
So to end - just a little treat for anyone out there who fancies them. Keeping in theme with all the love hubby shows me and the joy of a little flutter with the pennies ...here are two packs of Papermania rub-ons up for grabs. Just leave a comment and your blog/e-mail so I can contact you and I will soon be sending them on to one lucky WOYWWer. No gimmicks - just like giving pressies - so enjoy!
Still loving my type-writer.
This is me - signing off - over and out - and until we meet again...xxx Sarah
