Not posted a WOYWW for a while due to ill health. Now on the mend but still sound like a honking swan when I talk.
This picture of my desk is actually taken Tuesday morning but I wanted to include it for a reason.
I recently entered the Button floozies Altered Autumn button tin swap. But sadly my partner did not acknowledge receipt of her tin or send her swap to me. When Laurie the host for the swap found this out she very kindly (unbeknown to me) made and sent at her own cost from USA this super decorated tin and buttons. I love all the buttons that are in the tin but the five I have selected in front are my favourites. Hope you can zoom in on those as I couldn't get in any closer with the camera lens without it going blurry. When Laurie told her friend about it she also wanted to make me a a tin( before knowing that Laurie was going to ) to send to me so Jeanelle thank you so much for your sweet thought and lots of hugs to Laurie for making my day for me.
So whats on my desk today. I'm really behind with getting one project started and finished. The squares have been hanging around for about 2 weeks now though I have sorted them out into the layout I want to use . They all need hemming and there are 48 in total to do. The knitting is in conjunction with the same project. There are 6 finger puppets on the pattern. So far I have managed to make the duck. Very fiddly as there are only 16sts altogther and you knit it in the round. Started on the elephant but have now realised in order to increase for his ears I need to be working with 5 needles in stead of 4 so need to do a quick change over.
The two blue and one white bauble are an experiment. I was going to throw a load of tacky baubles out last year but hung onto them instead . These are some that I have covered with small pieces of kitchen towel and pva glue and dried overnight in the airing cupboard. Iv'e painted two blue and waiting for them to dry out again before I go onto the next step. (To be honest I'm making it up as a go along!!)
Pop on over to Julia's blog for some more desks to have a good nose and poke around. Thats where I'll be later on today. Might even see you there.
