WOYWW #262

Another WhatsOnYourWorkdeskWednesday, I have only just arrived back home so my post is a tad late today.
I am as per usual multi-tasking .....  doncha just love my little pills?
I do!?!
I say God Bless our hospitals who have Doctors and Nurses who care ........... and may God be praised and glorified 'cos He loves me!

So here is my desk for today - as it was on Monday ..... I am in the middle of making a card for a good friend.
It is a pop up box card, my second one and I am just loving  making them.

 The card box is finished, there are the 'trees' ready to have the flowers affixed and lots & lots of flowers all over  the desk.  I have punched out and die cut different flowers then decorated with pens and embossing powders.  The finished article with feature on this Blog at a later date.

I have been crocheting the little blankets for our local hospital Premature Baby Unit and, while travelling down to St Albans and back over the last two days, I have managed to finish another four blankets.
They are 30cms square but soooo small ..... when I think of the tiny bodies that will lie underneath each blanket to keep warm........
I have bough a LARGE ball of double knitting wool to make the blanket and am using up all my left over wool to add variation to the designs.  No pattern is involved because I am making it all up as I go along!
30cms square.
No 4 crochet hook, 50 chain using the last three as the first stitch on the next row and then off we go on another blanket, adding colours as I go.

Have a good week my WOYWW friends, enjoy visiting - hopefully our honoured leader Julia will have returned from foreign climes and even Mr Linky will make an appearance.

  1. Hi Christine happy WOYWW and a big thank you for my ATC that arrived with a bundle Julia sent over. Not sure if you know Julia is in hospital and Jan at LLJ has all the details...we can keep this crazy thing going and pray that our dear Julia is on the mend soon. Love that you are crocheting premmie blankets what a lovely idea and you can use up scraps that way. I have a half finished box card on my desk and will be back to see yours finished. Cheers and have a great week RobynO


I make my cards for sheer pleasure so thank you for taking the time to comment.
