LOOK!! Don't rub your eyes in disbelief.....they are not deceiving you!
Ladies and Gentlemen, there is craft on LLJ's table.
I repeat, there is craft on LLJ's.....yeah, you get the picture.
I had a good riffle through my fat quarters box to find some fabrics for Lynda's doggy bandanna that she wants for Isla, her young dog. Even more amazingly, I found the cardboard template....
It may be battered but it's seen some action, I can tell you!
And it still works! Woohoo :-D I haven't forgotten how to do it either (always a relief) I'll show the finished bandannas when Lynda's had them.
This is the yarn on my table ready to be put away:
A belated Mother's Day prezzy from Son No 1! He had great fun in the shop picking colours that he thought would appeal. He was right, I love them all and will have fun making something with them. The little pot is full of beads and pretty things - you could buy a pot and fill it with whatever you liked apparently. I knew his early years training in how to fill a Woolworth's Pick and Mix pot to maximise the sweetie quotient would stand him in good stead :-) We had a lovely couple of days with him and DiL-to-be before they had to return for work...Son no 2 is still here so I can spoil him for a couple more weeks!
Talking about being spoilt, this arrived from my great friend Lynne - I had no idea it was coming and was completely bowled over by it. Lynne sent an explanation with it as well:
OMG, I absolutely love it! I can take things off to make up a brooch or whatever I want as all the elements have lobster claw findings. There is so much meaning to each item - I have to admit it made me cry. What a beautiful and unique way to sum up our long friendship. I know Lynne reads this blog so would like to thank her publicly for this - there will be deskers all around the world who'll admire this, not only for the contents but the reasons behind it. I think she's onto something here, don't you?
I am a lucky girl.
Have a great week everyone and hopefully there's be a little more desk action to share next week xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
