|Don't worry, I did disinfect here once she'd moved on!|
|And the latest precarious bed is in Mum's shower room. At least not too far to fall. It's pointless waking her unless it's really dangerous, as she just goes back!|
All the knitting of the past few weeks is now finished
|Six brooches passed on to the British Legion, for sale on Remembrance Day|
|And the socks for DD1 - they look a strange shape from this angle, but are fine really!|
And now somewhere you rarely see, as I haven't been able to spend much time here at all, for ever. I occasionally snatch 15 minutes, but that's it, as I feel bad not spending time with Mum, downstairs. It's like a war zone because I've been searching for the right materials for three smash books. My girls will be spending New Year in Barcelona, with their Dad and Step Mum, for his birthday, and I thought I'd make the girls and Cindy a travel smash book each, to put together while they're away, and they'll have a gel pen, washi tape and glue stick each, that they can swap.
|The front cover of the first book - just need letters to add a title.|
|The very bare and incomplete inside|
The other art work I'm trying for the first time is Bible Art Journalling, and this was my first attempt, this week.
This was quite scary, as I don't have very steady handwriting, and the blank page was very daunting! I'm hoping to learn to relax and enjoy it. This verse has been popping into my head for the past couple of weeks, and has always been a favourite. It has just struck me that the promise is for a straight path, not necessarily a flat one - something most of us can attest to. Mine often feels more like a roller coaster!!
Sitting with Mum, I've got stuck back in to putting hexies together, for DD1's Christmas pressie bed quilt. It's growing, but slowly.
At the moment, I'm still putting white borders around the colours, and will show you when they're put together.
In the meantime, I hope to visit as many desks as I can before the weekend. Thanks to everyone who pops over here, especially for all the lovely comments and encouragement. WOYWW?? Clicking the button on my side bar will transport you over to the lovely Julia, who coordinates a weekly visit to wonderful crafting desks all over the globe.
Have a happy WOYWW, lovelies, and a great week. Hugs xx
