WOYWW 279 Whats on your workspace Wednesday.
“No more kitchen table!!”
We’re desk hopping again. If you don’t know what I mean, go to http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.com.es/ where Julie will explain how it all works.
I now have a craft space! No more kitchen table! Let me explain: We are constructing our house next to an old cave house and while we are building, we are living in the old cave. My DH has cleared (and cleaned, bless him) a room for me to craft in! The furniture is what we found here when we bought the place.
The fold up table has come out of its box, a light (plus safe electrics) have been rigged up and the old stove now has a chimney pipe so it can be used when winter comes.
Isn’t that stove a beauty. We’ve tried it and it works! The winters here can be cold because of our altitude (we are in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.)
On my desk is my finished layout ‘Where the wild things are’ (see my previous blog page) and a ‘dolly’ stamp I have been playing with. I'm going to have a stab at 'colouring in'. I got my box of water colour pencils out (has never been used) and I’ll try to make a card for a friend. I'm seeing so many cards on WOYWW that I've really been inspired to do some again. (Although people in this country don't give each other cards.... but that's about to change!)
The new CSI challenges have been printed out and are beckoning, but I’m not sure I’ve got any papers in that colour. (I have very limited supplies. But that is a challenge in itself: scrap with what you’ve got...)
A lot of people have asked me for photos of the construction. There is one at the end of my previous blog and here is another one. We’re building on several levels and this is the ground floor, which now has a roof. What you see will be a lounge/kitchen/diner, a bedroom and a bathroom.
I cook for the workmen too as they live too far to go home for lunch. Yesterday I made a ‘mean’ lasagna. There’s just a little bit left, so if anyone is peckish..... I’ve got red wine ready too.
That’s it for today. Thanks for visiting. Pop round any time you like for a virtual glass of something (This is Spain: plenty of wine, lol!)
And I really appreciate all your kind comments.
