After completely forgetting about WOYWW last week, I thought I’d better make an appearance this week! The whole holiday season had me out of sync and what limited routine I normally have went completely out the window.
Thank you Julia for organising another weekly nosey fest so that we can all see what everyone is doing on their work desk. A wonderful opportunity for inspiration and friendship! If anyone reading this hasn’t a clue what I’m on about, click on the WOYWW link in my sidebar which will take you to Julia’s blog and you can join in the fun.
This week it’s more a case of “What’s On Your Work Floor Wednesday” – for the past couple of days I’ve been working on some new spoke guards for my wheelchair. I’d like to get these finished by 24th Jan. when I’m going to a craft show in Exeter, and I’m feeling rather ashamed of my current, very tired and old decorations on my wheelchair!
This is a frame grab taken from the video I’m making of the process – I haven’t bothered to photograph it again for WOYWW as nothing much has changed, just a couple more layers of papier mache on the spoke guards. The video will be in several parts and I won’t upload any of it till it’s completed, but watch this space!
I’ve also been busy working on my new Zentangle album and now have the pages and ring binder to put them in. It’s looking great, and will be a lot easier to use than the old one. I have several recent posts about the ATC-sized cards I’ve done of each pattern, so I won’t put links to them all. If you have time, have a wander.
(Note: Page showing reverse side of cards with step-out instructions has been blurred for copyright reasons.)
Also, I’ve been designing my first Zentangle patterns! These are also lurking in my recent posts and you’ll find “Y-Ful Power,” “Y-Pod,” “Nemnies” and “Spawn.” “Stonewall” is on its way.
Thank you everyone for your good wishes for Rev. Ernest Bear’s surgery – I managed to complete all the work before Christmas and it ended up as part of my Christmas present to my hubby. He is so thrilled to have his precious bear back all nice and smart ready for the New Year! I’ve put new pads on all 4 paws, and also added little patches (hearts on his hands – he gives a LOT of love!) and matching patches now decorate his blue trousers, and he’s got a new pair of red braces. All his clothes have had a wash, and I think he’s looking pretty chuffed about the whole thing!
Happy WOYWW everyone, and I hope I manage to visit a few of you this week, but when I’m feeling well enough to do anything, I’ve got to crack on with my spoke guards.
