Hello lovely blogreaders! Today we desk hop again! I’m looking forward to seeing all your projects, new stash and reading about what you’ve been up to.
My desk is in card making mode. I have promised to make 15 cards for my DIL which need to be ready next week. So you can see I am in full flow, as they say.
The scrapbook page of my dad’s photos (Last week) hasn’t seen much progress as my priorities have been elsewhere.
The printed paper just by the ‘Travel Lite’ lamp is a list of keyboard shortcuts for PSE 6&7 (!). I’m itching to learn to digiscrap but I only have an older version of PSE that I bought years ago and use (a bit) for photos. I’m not going to buy an updated version until I can manage this one reasonably.
Then on the left you see a piece of patchwork which I’m finishing. Last Saturday I went on a day long workshop to learn to do patchwork. (see previous blog)
I really enjoyed it. Here is a photo with the first thing we learnt to do. (A cushion cover) and in the afternoon we started to do the hexagons but I haven’t quite finished those.
Monday is the day we always go home for a day and a night (we are still ‘camping’ on the building site), so that not only means I can use my lovely bathroom (in stead of a utility shower) but we collect the mail of course. This time there were 7 postcards! Oh joy! Here is one of them from Germany.
The writing reads: “ An eine altbekannte Tur klopfen,
Erinnerungen vom Staub befreien, Den Garten neu bepflanzen."
Translated that would be: To knock on a familiar door, to dust off memories and to re-plant the garden. (I’m doing this off the top of my head but Gabriele will correct me I’m sure, if it’s not right.)
That’s it for this week. If you have been wondering what all this desk hopping business is all about... have a look at Julia’s blog at http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.com.es/
Have a great week y’all,
