Goodness, it’s time for the World’s Best Nosey Fest again – What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? Come on, take a photo of your creative space and hop over to Julia’s blog (click on the link in my sidebar) and join in the fun.
I’m composing this post on Tuesday night. Not a great deal on my desk this week, although I was quite productive yesterday when I created a card using my melted nappy liner. On my desk today is the second of my diamond-pattern teabag drying sheets, and on the left you can see the large piece of roofing felt that Andy, one of the builders who did all that wonderful work on our new house last year, brought me yesterday. It is not actually Tyvek but resembles Fibertex, the “fabric” type of Tyvek. So far all I’ve done with it is cut off a small piece and melted it with the heat gun, with quite good results. In the centre of the desk, at the back, you can see my super-duper glue gun which I got running yesterday to stick my melted nappy liner onto the card base. Teabags in various stages of drying, emptying and embellishing seem to be a permanent fixture on my desk these days!
I’ve made a bit of progress on the first sleeve of my knitting – here you can see the back, lying on the desk from left to right, with the picked-up sleeve at the top of the picture. The green and grey pattern strip is deceptively difficult – each time I work this pattern I go wrong, and the poor artificial light in the sitting room was blurring the colours together and making it quite impossible! In the end I took myself up to my ARTHaven and knitted it up there, but I still went wrong and had to spend hours undoing the wretched thing! Success at last, though.
Finally, a picture I took this evening of my hubby tucking into a salmon fishcake, with both kitties showing intense interest, with lots of neck-craning and woofly twitchy noses!!
Next time we meet, I should have some exciting news for you. Meantime, wishing you all a happy and creative week.
