We've been HOT!! Yes, 101 and 100*F Monday and Tuesday. At least there's been minimal wind so it doesn't feel like a convection oven! I try to stay inside during the heat which comes on about 10 and lasts until evening. But we're supposed to cool down a bit this weekend and be in the low 90's. That's a bit better. But I have been very busy with making cards showcasing retiring stamp sets and making a special item for one of our daughters-in-law. She requested this and I'll share the full pic next week but can give you a teaser today. And my desk view is part of a blog tour of desks put together by Julia at the Stamping Ground. She's been doing this for 466 weeks!!! YEAH! That's the longest time I've ever seen a weekly blog hop last! I've been doing this since about 185 or so.
But my desk, you can see a lot of what I was making.
I've had many of my dies working hard on my Platinum machine to the far right. I took this pic yesterday afternoon when I had some good light from my east window. I'm betting you can figure out what I'm making..
Here's a piece of my project. I used Fun Stampers Journey dies for the fringe and flower. Lots of hand stitching and looking in my button can! I needed to get this done as my DIL has a birthday mid July and I want to get this in the mail mid June.
Did you like my teaser? I wasn't sure how this was going to turn out but, by golly, I did good! But now head over to the Stamping Ground and check out a bunch of other desks and sometimes projects, and sometimes scenery! Grab your favorite beverage and enjoy!
