The last month has been ridiculous. I am not going to whine on about how busy, stressful, and at times overwhelming it has been but simply apologize for my chronic lateness for my WOYWW visits. Today I am hosting a much anticipated and very rare luncheon with a trio of knitting mates. Due to work schedules we only manage maybe once a month and this visit is a bit celebratory, with lunch carried in and eaten in the sunshine – hopefully not TOO much sunshine for my photo-sensitive bestest bag (pet name, said with love) or the others. Good news is we will meet later than usual so hopefully I will manage all my visits early. Fingers crossed.
My desk from yesterday looked pretty bad:
After we got back from that mammoth Salisbury trip, knackered but determined, I had a swizz round to tidy up. I have the little pieces I made using that “painted old walls” technique I have been obsessed with all laid out and will speak more about the project I plan with them tomorrow or Friday, depending on the progress.
I have a few other changes to make, as I picked up a few kitchen organizing items and that let me shift some of the older things over to my office. Not yet sorted it all but I will. My window desk has another project, making use of a ton of experimental pulls with that same technique, some small collage play that will eventually make it into a small book of some kind:
And a closer look at that kinda weird thing to the left – I finally dragged out my hot glue gun and made a stencil. In the process I think I killed it. I need to either unscrew it and remove whatever is stuck or heat it up and hope the glue all dribbles out. Bah! Love the stencil tho’
So. I now have about 90 minutes to get around as many desks from last week as I can. It is a shocking admission that I have let it go till now but what can I say? Will do better. Really and truly I will.
