Good morning fellow deskers, here we are again! Lots of photos today and things to show you.
I have in fact two desks to show you today (or maybe three)... I’ve got my sewing machine out and I have been doing some sewing! That merits an exclamation mark because I bought this (el cheapo) sewing machine last year and then managed to mislay the instructions so the poor thing has been in the cupboard ever since. When I got my summer clothes out I noticed so many lovely linen trousers that were so hopelessly out of fashion with bell bottoms and all sorts of wide legs. I decided to take the bull by the horns and tackle machine and trousers.
Well, I did it! I managed to refashion my trousers to wearable items and at the same time I learned how to wind a bobbin and change to a different colour. I’m so proud of myself!
My real desk is full of postcards. I collect my mail on Tuesdays and this week there were 6 postcards! (I join Postcrossing.com) I’m also in the process of writing postcards, so those are also on my desk. I have yet to get my crafty things out. Won’t be long now....
A little update on the construction of the house as some people have asked me... Well, we finally have windows in the arches.
The room that will be my craft room (the most important room of course) is now usable (not yet for crafting, but I can use it as a 'gym').
My husband has rigged up my Wii so I can do my excercises (I do ‘My Fitness Coach’ to keep fit and ‘WiiFit’ for a laugh).
The possible third desk is the table I use for doing my jigsaw. Yes, I love jig saws. It’s great to be retired! Here I am doing a cartoon impression of Las Vegas. Great fun as I’ve been there and I recognize certain buildings.
That was my contribution today. Not terribly interesting or exciting.... just what's happening here in hot hot hot Spain (it's 40 degrees C in the day).
Have a good week all of you,
