I mark my weeks by Wednesdays. I am busy although retired with 'nothing to do' so the days just merge one to another ...... except for Wednesdays!
WEDNESDAY is just that .....
.... a CAPITAL day.
I am so glad that Julia continues to host this meeting of friendly folks, sharing a moment in our lives. I learn so much, laugh, cry and wonder at the talent of them all.
Thank you Julia for being such a great hostess.
My desk today shows a new format (for me) ATC. It is Double Sided, taken some working out but now the basics are done. I have sketched out my ideas and am ready to colour in.
Although I have both my paints and watercolour pencils on show, I know that I will use the pencils and then give the cards a water wash to merge the pencil marks. Please note that I have managed to keep a pretty clear work top!!!
My evening job ...... the saga goes on .....
I did complete the jumper, it fitted Little Soldier but looked like a crop top on him!! After we had stopped laughing (someone a little ruefully) I put it to one side and started a second one ..... I am a tryer!! lol
During the course of the evening PJ suggested just undoing the original jumper and reknit the front and back to a longer length. I couldn't bear the thought of undoing it all but thinking about what he said ..... if I could save some of the pieces I would only have to reknit the front & back. After careful unpicking of the stitching I saved the sleeves, the collar and the button band and was so chuffed! A good evenings work.
I knitted up the front and back, also the buttonhole band and voila!!!
A completed jumper which, hopefully, will fit Little Soldier better this time.
Hope the sun is shining where you are and your work is making you as happy as I feel at the moment. Take care.
