WOYWW - the indeterminate table and a whole load of blank canvasesesesessss

No news is good news that's it isn't it. We are still waiting for the surveyor to go into the flat on behalf of the person buying it (one week and waiting) other than that all is ok, oh yes and the perspective buyer doesn't want to hand over their solicitor details until they know that they have a mortgage........ so it's a waiting game.  That one is less hard than the other one my family and I are playing we are waiting at the moment as my 25 year old cousin is in hospital and under maximum sedation following a massive brain haemorraugh at the beginning of last week. No one knows yet if it will be ok, ok given time and extensive therapy or if it is already over.  That aside really can't complain I have a table of indeterminate purpose for you this week - see:


It is a canvas of blankness awaiting opportunity and time.  There are all the lovely fabrics I washed the other week - but look I now have the threads and some extra bobbins so I can start bag crafting.  Then there are a couple of my other Christmas projects - clear plastic baubles and a puzzle maker. Next to that there are some glass painting pens for another idea in my head. Then lastly are the 3 nesting boxes that I made the last couple of nights - based on an idea over on the graphic 45 website from a project that Laura Denison did.  They are blank canvases too waiting to be created on - was looking at my pile of Lavinia Stamps for inspiration (and to see which other ones I really really need  want!). Starting next Monday I have a run of 3 or 4 weeks where I won't be tutoring (due to late holidays) and Timothy is in nursery I am hoping to be a hive of activity for 2 days a week. 

So how are you anyway?  Want to see lots of exciting desks - hop on over to Julia's place (vis the WOYWW widget on the right and discover a desk or 2 or 150 that are waiting for  a good nose.  Now put the kettle on I am looking for distractions.........

I love that table cloth,
whilst your news is not at all brilliant, it is so good to know that you are holding your own and finding time to be creative,

I would like to make you a journal of indeterminate purpose Mrs Womble, but shall require your patience since i am traveling about for most of October. So I would like you to nag me in November for I shall surely forget and think I have already done it unless you prompt me...

So sorry to hear that you're having a tough time of it familywise at the moment - will be thinking of you and hoping it all comes out in the wash.

Intriguing indeterminate desk this week!

Sounds like a difficult time - hope you are ok and that everything works out fine. Have fun crafting if you can - I see you like Stampeezee - shame Debbie has shut her doors isnt it.

Sounds like a very frustrating week. I feel for you. I got a late start because I fell asleep before I could link up with Julia. I'm 42 this week, not even in the top 10!

Lots of luck with the flat, hope it all works out for you soon - then you can relax and play with all these goodies!

Julia Dunnit said...

A table of indeterminate purpose. I feel a novel in there somewhere! Like your tablecloth, and those Lavinia's - yummy.
Hoping with your for positive news from the hospital.

sandra de said...

Ohhh sounds like you have a lot happening around you at the moment. Hope your family member improves and you get some good news.

I hope you can keep positive with your troubles. My mother had a brain haemorrhage about 20 years ago, and recovered remarkably well, and only died a couple of years ago. Keep talking to them about anything they particularly love - they can hear you. Mum was just determined to get back to her beloved garden. She amazed the hospital staff by the speed of her recovery. Look after yourselves too, and keep well for your cousin.

I am sorry to hear of your cousin. I send all my best thoughts and wishes your way.
At least the crafting may keep your mind occupied while you wait.
If you feel up to it I am having a giveaway and you are invited to come enter.
Take care!
xoxo Karen

Elizabeth said...

Apologies for being so late in visiting but I really wanted to pop in and see what you were up to last week. I wish your cousin a speedy recovery. Hopefully I will get around much quicker tomorrow. Elizabeth x #73
