What's Not On My Workdesk Wednesday...

Hi folks...yep it's Wednesday...the middle of the week and if it was a normal run of the mill week I'd be heading over to Julia's place aka WOYWW to meet up with lots of lovely crafty folks from around the world to share our crafty places but as you know I'm still in mad trying to catch my tail DIY mode so I'm ducking out again...I'm sure you don't want to see yet another shot of my paint splattered step ladder and paint tray.
And I'm thrilled to announce that the tum seems to be back in working order again...the painting is almost done and dusted...I'm not so thrilled at the prospect of scrubbing out said paint trays and washing out the rollers and brushes...between you and I...I'm tempted to bin them when hubby ain't looking and buy replacements if and when I'm hit with another mad painting urge.
But I have some crafty sneaky peeks to share of the birthday card I made for my little Sis on yesterday's cubbyhole play date and oh boy was that saga and a half...I'll tell you about my latest adventure tomorrow.

I'll be delivering said card today...a killing 2 birds with one stone little outing...I'm sure she won't mind sharing her special day celebrations with the picking up of the family room curtains from the dry cleaners...she may have to treat me to a cuppa and wipe my fevered brow until I recover from the "my gast is well and truly flabbered" cost of said process...what possessed me to buy curtains that require professional cleaning and if I'd known it was going to be an arm and a leg job...I might have ditched them too and bought new. Or if I'd timed this little make-over project for later in the year...I could be sitting at the sewing machine as we speak running up a new pair from the fabulous Eclectic Elements fabrics from Mr Holtz with matching cushions...now there's an idea to add to the winter crafty list.
In the meantime it's toodle oo from the cubbyhole...I'm looking forward to my morning toast with just a scraping of butter (don't want to tempt fate) even if I have to share it with my Furry Partner.
Hugs Kath xxx

Glad you are on the mend. Can't wait to see the whole card you made for your sister. I always toss paint brushes,rollers and trays because I can't bear washing them and when you caome to use the brushes again they are to stiff to use!! lol

Hi Kath, nice to read that the tummy has settled down now, you always feel better with some food inside you, god knows why some people starve themselves just to look beautiful in a dress. Like the sneak peak of your sisters card, hope you had a nice long visit with her...Trish

I'm intrigued by the sneaky peek of your sister's card, looks exciting. Really glad to hear you're on the mend. I had a hard enough job persuading my husband that we needed new curtains for the spare room,I think he'd blow a gasket if I told him they were dry clean only!
Take care and enjoy your day out with your sister.
Val xx
