This week I have been trying to make the most of the sunshine and been crafting outside. Well trying to, despite being ill and having the kids here. Funnily enough they are not interested in crocheting, knitting or anything I fancy doing at the time. You see, it doesn't involve mud, sticks or chocolate.
Anyway, what is on my crafting rug:
My How To Crochet book which I am finding incredibly difficult to decipher. It should be easy. There are diagrams, pictures, tips but I just can't do it. Luckily my Mother in Law can crochet and she is going to help me this weekend.
There are my balls of wool and some lovely flowers I might make into brooches. I made them by mistake, good mistake but a mistake nevertheless.
My smash book - full of more ideas which I will get round to one day.
And an album I am trying to create of old photographs found at my Grandma's house. I've had them for years but only just started to sort them. Some of them go back ages.
|I wish I knew who this was. We think they might be my Great Great Grandma & Great Great Grandad but we can't be sure. It seems a very old photograph.|
What's on your work desk this week? Hop over to Julia's to find lots more desks.
Another purchase from Ikea that I wanted to share
It's a candle that smells of apple. ....and it really does. I have bought many scented candles before and none really smell once they are lit - but horray, this one does.
