I JUST WANNA COLOUR OUTSIDE THE LINES...
I'M A RULE BREAKER
Enough said really.... *grin* I just noticed that 30 weeks have elapsed since WOYWW 600, goodness that disappeared without trace!
I don't have a photo of my desk this week but lots of other things that we've been working on.
My friend Kim gets parcels of stash from a crafting friend who's having a big clear out and she kindly bought these fabrics for me - all nautical in theme, they'll come in handy, especially the one on the left, there must be a metre and a half of that.
You know me, I never keep things 'for best'. so these yachts have already been cut up into four cases, two purses and maybe a little zipped pouch from the leftovers.
The main reason I've not been in the JanCave much is other things have taken precedence. If the Guild of Quilters see this next pic then I'll be drummed out of town:
What? Isn't a quilting ruler supposed to be used for trimming wallpaper?
What was a bare wall is now resplendent in lovely new paper. We used the Paste the Wall paper, which was so much easier than slapping gunk onto long lengths and then getting everything stuck together. Last time G and I papered, it nearly came to divorce, this time was amazingly easy!!
And the best thing about getting lovely wallpaper was this:
Look at this gorgeous box! It made me happy on opening it up for the first time, I know some of you would make a journal (that's so not going to happen with me...) I can't bear to throw it away!
We've also been spending a heap of time out in the garden and I have to say that it is looking rather fab:
Everything has just splurged and it's filled with colour and the buzzing of bees and chirping of sparrows. There is a new addition in the centre:
I have a big birthday approaching and this above ground pond is a present from many contributors, it'll have plants in there soon together with a solar powered pump/fountain and possibly a few fish too. It'll give me great pleasure for many years to come, thanks G for putting it all together x
Hope you have a wonderful week and enjoy the crafting (if you're not too busy watching Wimbledon or the Tour de France!)
