Oh my goodness! It’s been more than 6 weeks since I last wrote a blog post and 7 since I last took part in What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday.
No sinister reasons for that. It’s just that it’s been a lovely summer here and I’ve been busy outside. Most of the time it was too hot to be in the attic anyway. Also, I’ve got a little bored with telling my story. It seems, no sooner have I decided on how I think things/I work than I change my mind and see things anew. Too much blah, blah, blah going on.
Anyhoo . . . I’m back and, since it Wednesday, here’s what’s on my workdesk.
I’m particularly proud of the crochet. No one’s more surprised than I that I’ve created that.
It all came about because I’m taking Ed Dale’s challenge which entails me writing a Kindle book in 30 days and I’ve ended up writing one about making bunting. Yep. Bunting.
I started out with some deep and meaningful book ideas, then progressed into something about artists block and finally ended up settling on bunting.
If you’d told me, even a few weeks ago that I’d be making bunting, let alone writing about it I would have laughed in your face. Bunting? Moi? Noooooooo. Not me.
I do meaningful quotes on pictures and stuff. I don’t do trivial.
Well, ha, ha, ha. The joke’s on me.
I’m crocheting granny squares and loving it, not to mention keeping myself awake at night trying to come up with ideas of how to turn Monopoly houses into flags.
See what happens when I get out of my head? I end up in totally unexpected places and have a ball!
I’m also very gratified to notice that, without particularly trying, I have completed the projects that were on my desk the last time I took part in WOYWW. You can see them here:
- art journal with covers upcycled from an old board game containing a variety of handmade and upcycled pages
- Be Yourself and Everything Else Will Fall Into Place - upcycled jigsaw art featuring the winner of my first ‘Vote For A Quote‘ poll
- inspirational mini art with quotes canvases
Wishing you all a week full of quirky surprises!
