It's Wednesday again and time for our weekly dose of blog hopping, courtesy of Ms. Dunnit at Stamping Ground.

 Here is my desk this week.  I tried so hard to get this finished by the end of Tuesday, but alas, even though I only have to add the letters OHO and colour Amy's hair in red, I am just too darned tired.  Will probably get finished on Thursday night.  Will try to remember to update my blog with the finished article.
I have next week off so have started to peruse projects to be done.  These include lining my flaming work trousers (new and made exclusively of sandpaper)(and also very, very boring!), considering making a denim apron for a friend's birthday, start the next four cross stitches I've planned (even as I write this, I can hear this song playing in my head).  I've also been given more Christmas cards to recycle from colleague Nicki and a pile of craft magazines to get through from colleague Lee.I also plan to drink lots of peppermint tea, play video games and put my poor, tired feet up:)

See you all next week!

  9. This has really come on since last week and it will be fab when finished. Not worth trying to do it when tired, thats when we make mistakes.

  10. Sounds like you’ve lots to keep you busy Lucy.
    It’s shame you didn’t manage to finish your cross stitch, especially as you’re so close to the end. Now if that were me I would have kept going. I look forward to seeing what your next project will be.
    Happy Crafting!
