TURN AND FACE THE STRANGE,
It has been a crazy week! Moving my son and his fiancee into their new flat took up quite a bit of time (and energy...I'm not as young as I used to be!) plus going to a concert and...well, you get the picture.
Consequently, my desk...eet ees bare!
Except for a freebie pattern downloaded from the Bustle and Sew website. I'm going to make a pooch pin cushion. That's a first for me! I still haven't moved the clock from my desk - I'm not entirely sure how it ended up there. Probably when we were sorting out stuff for Owen's move! The vintage tablecloth was used to wrap up something fragile when we cleared my parents' bungalow. I'm just wondering how I can re-purpose it.
Interestingly, you sew the pieces with their wrong sides together, so you end up with a raised raggy seam. Hmmmm, I'm not sure if my OCD can cope with that. But there's a first time for everything :-)
I have been crocheting away whilst watching TV though. I had some cheapo Drops cotton yarn in my stash and am making a blanket.
Lovely, fresh colours but the yarn is a b%$£*r to use, it splits like crazy so I'm having to loosen my tension in order to get the hook through. I'll cobble together some sort of border at the end!
Now when someone leaves home, there's a vacuum in the house, isn't there? It's amazing how much longer a loaf of bread and pint of milk lasts....but the biggest difference is there's now a spare room:
My hubby was thinking about it as an office but it would involve a whole lot of computer cable/wireless internet shenanigans and he can't be bothered. So I'm claiming it in the name of Crafting Sisterhood! My next job is to redecorate (look at that yellowing woodwork - shameful!!) and then move all my stash in. I have warned my hubby that he won't see me much in the future!!! Now, where's my worktable going......?
Have a crafty week!
