Well I just about made it to week two of my attempted new routine of joining in with What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday hosted by the lovely Julia. I visited everyone but I did have trouble commenting on some because in my absence Google & Blogger have palled up which means people might end up at my old blog. I have my tech support on the case but it looks like we have uncovered another issue so I might not get it sorted today.
Anyway, to the desks fair readers!
Ah yes… it is the dining table. To the top left of this photo just out of sight is one of my craft desks propped up on it’s side, legs sticking out. While everything was accessible in my room with the radiator & pipework needing to be accessed, Mr Pretty has taken the opportunity to finish the woodwork that we didn’t quite around to when the room was created. We moved in exactly 9 years ago this weekend and my craft room was intended to be one of the last things to be done. It was full of hand made solid wood fitted drawers & dressing table etc which was very dated but worked remarkably well for craft storage! The ex-bedroom is next to our bathroom which WAS one of the first things we did.
We took out an Adam’s style fireplace that began in our kitchen, went up through the bathroom and out through the loft. What we didn’t know was that there was no seperate bathroom wall and once the bricks were removed all that was left was a strange thick wallpaper! Although it was a pain at the time it did mean that we had to deal with my craft room but between a totally renovated kitchen and bathroom, the woodwork in my room got sidelined. Now it is lovely and sparkly and Mr Pretty has moved on to painting some bare shelves that suffered the same ‘do-it-later’ fate and then I can start moving back in. However, we are on holiday next week so you’ll see another different desk next week before ‘normality’ returns the week after!
So what IS on my dining room table. The canvasses at the back are ex-children’s projects that were next to the art trolley that lives in our kitchen where our new radiator is. We need to have a rethink here because I don’t think keeping paints next to the radiator is a good idea! There is some planning going on which is the mess of stickers and traveller’s notebook and is the only arty thing going on unless you are one of the many that considers Lego art (and I am). I intend to do a seperate post about my Lego addiction which has been an actual life saver for me (who knew?!). I’m still doing sets because I’m not at the MOC stage yet. MOC stands for My Own Creation – Lego has it’s own language including AFOL which is an Adult Fan Of Lego!! The project you can see is an Alpine Lodge which I will eventually ‘winter-fy’ to go in my Winter Village.
Right oh, on with the day! Giving blood this morning and then I ought to pack a few arty bits for our little getaway next week!
Put the kettle on and I’ll be round. xx
