WOYWW #246


Hello and welcome fellow desk hoppers! (Not a desk hopper yet? Go here to join in the fun).

It is half term here at Moonshine Manor and I have the house to myself today as Moonshine Minor is visiting Grandma and Grandad and Mr M has driven Moonshine Major to Swansea for an Applicants Day at the University. Needless to say, I am making the most of the lack of demands on my time to have a good old play in my craftroom.

I bought some mache monograms in 2011 (I know this because the receipt was still in the bag) with the intention of altering them and putting them at the top of one of the walls in my craftroom. I had never quite worked out how I was going to hang them up so I had put them away in the wardrobe of despair and forgotten about them. Some time last week it occurred to me that if I cleared all the knick-knackery off my window sill I could stand them on there as a cool, arty, mini installation. So, to get to the point of what WOYWW is all about, what is on my workdesk today is - my altered monogram project...


Oh, by the way in case you are interested, the February Calendar Girl I had on my desk last time is now finished, you can see her here if you like.

That's it from me, what's going on in your craft space today

  8. Those letters are so awesome!! But I'm still laughing about how they were put away in the wardrobe of despair. I could definitely put a few things in the wardrobe of despair! And your February calendar girl is completely adorable! Isn't nice too to have a day home alone? I get a lot of crafting done if I even have a few hours completely to myself. Happy WOYWW!

  24. Love the letters, what do they spell? I went to Swansea University, my Mum still lives nearby. The college in the park by the sea lovingly known of, in my day (late 80's), as UC Butlins!! I blu-taced my letters directly onto my wall, one has fallen off once but no harm done. I'd go for the crane or move house btw. Sorry I’m a bit late replying this week, too much Winter Olympics to watch, harp to play and everything, thanks for the visit BJ#77
