WOYWW 148

I cannot believe another week has gone by! I know we all keep saying it, but it’s true! Time is flying by…

It’s Messy Desk Time again!! Julia, the Queen of Desks, hosts our wonderful “What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday” and tries to keep us in better order than most of our desks ever achieve. To join the fun, click on the link in my sidebar.

I haven’t done a lot different this past week, but I’ve been developing my Zentangling skills and am very pleased with my latest effort, based on a small plankton organism (from an electron microscopy image) – I’ve done a separate post about that.

I’ve also done a few more inches of my knitting! It’s quite fine, so it’s taking me a while, but I don’t mind that, as it’s lovely to do while I’ve got my feet up watching TV or Youtube videos.

Finally, I’ve just made my first piece of hand-made paper (well, re-made paper really, from paper towels) – I’ve done a separate post about that, too. In the photo, you can see that I’ve laid my Indian flowers on it as the colours are lovely together, and I might end up using them in the same project.

At the back of the picture you can see my acrylic gel medium (soft matt) that I used for the paper, the gesso and Polyfilla One Fill for my Choc-a-Bloc project – it still doesn’t look very different but I’ve put some more coats of gesso on, so it’s now ready to progress to the next stage.

Happy WOYWW, everyone, and thanks for all the lovely comments last week!

  9. I love your choice of zentangle subject. I can honestly say that's the first time I've ever seen a plankton through the microscope on WOYWW. But there's always a first time for everything :) Great tutorial on the hand made paper too!

  22. You certainly are into fine detail - knitting and zentangles are beautifully done. Hard to appreciate the paper in the photo, but as I have made paper myself, can imagine it. I am a great lover of blue.
    Cheers,

  24. I'm very late this week, usually try to get around more desks on the Wednesday but having a 15 year old staying certainly limits my computer time.
    Well done on the knitting, it's an age since I did any pattern knitting and I couldn't do it watching TV as I lose my place so easily. Love the paper as well.

  26. No way could I knit and watch TV - I'd drop stitches, knit two together and all kinds of things. Glad you enjoy it, and fine wool too.
    Thanks for sharing and Happy Easter. Neet #10
