Yes, it's Wednesday again and time to join in the madness of travelling around the world and visiting desks. My thoughts are with Julia. Hopefully she'll have a speedy recovery and be back with us soon. Thank you SO much Jan, for hosting while she is recovering. It is much appreciated. I love joining in with this group.
It was a busy weekend here with adventures at an antiques market and trips to three lighthouses (previous posts). I did make a little time for crafting. Here's my desk as it was when I left it.
I'm starting to try to figure out how the explosion box card is made. Has anyone made one? You can see my outer layer and one of my inside layers to the side. I did attempt to cover the middle but ripped it off as it wasn't working out.
This was how it looked when I practised putting together the layers (no glue lol).
And with the 'cake' on top. Not sure if I like it or not. I have two months to figure it out! There is another one I saw that had the third layer on an angle. I liked the idea of that one. I have three grown children so I thought about using one side each for them, maybe have them write something for Mum that would be on the top of the flap and then a picture underneath. The fourth side would be for me and hubby. Just a thought.
Last, but not least, my updated cross stitch picture. I am FINALLY done with all that gray, done with all the stitching and now on to the backstitching. The end is in sight!
I'm not sure how much I'll get done this week. We are off camping at the weekend! I haven't been camping in years (and longer still since I've been camping in a tent!).
