Hello, lovely deskers! Welcome back to another round of WOYWW... that weekly bloghop looking at the underbelly of creativeness, the mess and mayhem that is our desks... LOL.
As I type this, the weather is typically British summer - drizzle but warm and distinctly muggy. Yuk. Despite this, we have a major influx of visitors to Cornwall (no surprise there) but this has been augmented and indeed frustrated by G7. I live about 7 miles from Carbis Bay and Tregenna Castle, and it's causing a lot of trouble. Road closures - including all the bridges and overpasses for the A30, the main road that runs down the spine of Cornwall - and full accommodation are making things difficult for locals and visitors alike, and we get daily flyovers of USAF Hercules etc. Don't get me started on the parking issues in Falmouth, where the media circus are hanging out.
Regardless, I'm sat in my cosy little nook, keeping myself to myself, and busy plying my needle through fabric. They can keep their shenanigans!
The desk this week is suffering a bit from "pile it high" syndrome - I've not had the opportunity to sit and clear it up but my fingers are itching again to get on with it...
I'd also like to say a bit thank you to my swappees for the ATCs - what a lovely little collection! So thank you LLJ, Ali and Spyder for your lovely ATCs and postcards! I loved the little folder Spyder sent her ATCs in (and the little spider on one of them - too cute... :D).
Stitching - Siren's Lament lies untouched, with good reason! Myth & Magic Stitch Wars, round 14, is well under way and there's just too much confetti in it for me to get a good stitch count in a hurry on.
However, The Christmas Moose (why didn't they call it The Christmoose?) has had a significant amount of progress - you can even make out where the roofs will be on that side. Loving working on this!
Peppermint Purple's SAL is up to date as of last week and today's chart is now out, so I'll be working on that shortly.
Lastly, my Field of... er... Ducks is coming along nicely. There's good blocks of colour so yesterday evening I churned out over 320 stitches on it which was pretty awesome and very necessary - our clan had been "poisoned" by another clan and had to collectively stitch 1000 stitches as fast as possible to reduce the damage being caused over time.
The "ducks" caused a bit of a hoot over on my YouTube channel last week, and I also coined another phrase, where SAL no longer stands for "Stitch-a-Long" but "Stitch-a-Later". Seems a couple of folks are going to adopt that now... heheheheh
So that is that, this week. I found this "funny" on the web this week and had to share it - it takes a bit of thinking about but is v clever...
