IF YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND, I'M THE FIRST IN LINE....
Hello lovely deskers one and all! Don't forget that the WOYWW link-up is back at Julia and Stamping Ground today - yahoo!!
Now don't faint - I've actually done some sewing this week! It didn't turn out quite like I planned though - and that's not the first time I've ever said that, lol :-)
I was intending to FINALLY make the tote bag but d'ya know when you get that feeling that stops you from doing something, that 'I don't know why I don't want to make this' that keeps popping into your head. No? That'll just be me then! Anyway, the something that was stopping me from sewing the tote suddenly made me realise that what I REALLY needed to make was a new knitting needle case :-D
So, one long white zip and some spotty lining later...here is the desk!
Top stitching the zip....
And here it is, complete with needles poking out for 'artistic effect'. I put side pockets inside to hold my cable needles, stitch holder and Clover pom pom makers. A useful bag, bit like myself!
Last week, Mr LLJ, Son No 2 and myself popped up to Cirencester ( a small Cotswolds market town for the non-UK readers) and went to the Corinium Roman Museum. At one point, Cirencester (or Corinium) was the second largest Roman town in the UK, after Londinium. Consequently there were a lot of rich folk there and they had the goods to prove it!
The most exquisite hare mosaic - well, I had to show you this, you know I'm mad about them!
But this really stole my heart:
A little owl brooch, nigh on 2,000 years old - it could have been made yesterday, don't you think? And that's not a reflection, it is symmetrical. I could wear that very happily!
Off to meet Darnell today - I'm really looking forward to seeing her. No doubt there will be photos to show next time. Ooh, and Julia may have some exciting news for us too :-D
