This should actually be called worktop Tuesday because the pictures were taken before I went to bed on Tuesday, knowing I would not be able to do much on Wednesday before I go out.
haven't had much time for craft as real work has got in the way. As
landlords we have to sort out our properties when tenants leave and the
last few days have been spent scrubbing one house from top to bottom
ready for another tenant to come in. I wouldn't mind but we did this
property thoroughly only eight months ago and the tenant assured us that
she had cleaned before she left. All I can say is 'Gosh haven't the
spiders been busy over the weekend'. So I have vacuuming ceilings and
scrubbing floors and kitchen cupboards until I can hardly move, so when
we get home in the evening making cards is the last thing on my mind.I wouldn't mind if she just accepted that it needed more cleaning, but to insist that it was spotless when she left it annoys me.
Anyway to my worktop.
The cards on the desk are ones I have been struggling to get finished for days, I do so much and then can't work out what else to do with them so they gather dust on a pile until I determine that I will finish them, then I get dragged away to do cleaning and they sit there for another week until I put them away again to do something urgent.The blue one with the butterfly has been around for at least two months and I just can't decide what to do with it.
On the right of the picture are some Britannia dies I fell for when I saw them advertised in a magazine.
They ones that caught my eye were the words 'Happy', 'Birthday' and 'Christmas' which I thought would be most useful, on the cream and green and orange card I felt that doing the greeting in the same colour really finished the card well. Of course, having bought those three I felt I just couldn't live without 'Thank you' and 'Get Well' and 'Thinking of you' so those are on order too.
On the left are some crocheted squares to make a blanket to go in the caravan. Those of you who know British caravans will be aware that they are so often furnished in rather insipid pink and beige upholstery so I have to try to bring more positive colours in without clashing with the background colours. I hope to start assembling the blanket before we go away for the Bank holiday weekend and will try to post a picture next week.
