Tada! WOYWW 300!... And I’m flying off to Italy tomorrow!
Congratulations Julie on the 300th WOYWW! This is quite an achievement! I’ve only been part of this for the last 25 weeks but let me tell you it’s addictive!
This is my desk this week:
I’ve finished making the cards for my D-I-L, which you can see on the left. She wanted 15 but I made a few more. I will take them with me to Italy tomorrow. They don’t ‘do’ cards in Italy so this is a novelty for them. Here is a close-up:
I’ve also done a background in my journal after seeing a video tutorial by Jennifer McGuire called Easy Distress Ink Watercolor Backgrounds (With Iron-Off Embossing)
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3BiE8GyB1c) I was pleased with the result. I now wish I had more distress inks but I only have 4 colors. I didn’t iron off the embossing as I quite like the shiny effect. Again, here is a close-up:
My desk of WOYWW 298 had the beginnings of a scrapbook page with photos of my dad from 1955. For those who’d like to see the finished page... here it is:
See yesterday’s blogpost for more details and better photos.
Last but not least I want to show you the material I bought the other day for a table cloth for my mother. I chose a motif to embroider and I am in the process of copying/tracing the pattern onto the material. I am in a local ladies’ group where I can learn how to embroider as I have only ever done cross stitches. Watch-this-space as they say.
Tomorrow we are flying to Italy to see our new grandson (who is now 3 months old). So I won’t be able to comment much with a baby on my lap! (besides, I haven’t got a fancy phone that does internet). And next Wednesday there won’t be a photo of my desk of course as I won’t be back yet. But I just might be able to upload a photo of the above mentioned little chappie....
