Morning all,

Its work desk Wednesday again. Had a lovely day out with my friend on Monday and the weather was very kind to us.

Once a month I go to a small chapel where they hold a craft club. I got talking to the Pastor and I noticed there were small crocheted  blankets on the sets  and he said it gets really cold in the winter and they are for people to put over their legs, I said I would make them one and this is it,  I hope they like it. I enjoyed making it and have started another.

  15. Glad to see that you keep kitchen roll to hand at your desk, a staple ingredient if you ask me! Looks like a perfume bottle in the middle there, but I couldn't enlarge it enough to see if I'm right. Usually I'm not!

  16. Lovely cards! What a wonderful idea about those blankets. My Mum always says that sometimes it's chilly in church and if it's cold outside she doesn't always go as she doesn't want to sit in the cold.

    Happy WOYWW
