This week was my last at my current placement, and I worked an extra shift to compensate for some sick time on my previous placement - 4 long days? Ouch! By the end of the week I didn't know if I was coming or going.
On Monday last week my stepdad's mother passed away, and Tuesday was his birthday so it's been a week of ups and downs for him especially. I made him a birthday card steampunk style which I shared last Friday at The Scrappy Tree. For his birthday gift we clubbed together and bought him a telescope; I have never in nearly 20 years of knowing him seen him so excited and happy about a gift! I guess he really wanted one for a looooong time. It was nice that he was able to enjoy something about his day during such a sad time.
On Saturday I went to The Stamp Attic for Andy Skinner's gesso carving class - SO enjoyed, but am blogging about it Friday at The Scrappy Tree so won't share that here now, except to say that I've found another technique that I adore and want to put on everything :) thank you Wendy for a lovely day, hope to see you again soon! This pic was at the start of our day before things got messy :)
The sky on our drive home was so beautiful, this picture really doesn't do it justice.
Stamp Attic class at the beginning of December; if I could wangle going again so soon I would be there again next weekend for Hels' classes too!
I've been doing some knitting this week with some wool my mum was intending to turn into a scarf - I am getting there slowly! It's very fluffy indeed and reminds me of the mome raths from Alice in Wonderland :)
I have worked on a few things this week that I can't share, most recently a DT project last night, but just to prove that I have been busy, here is a snap of my inky Smurf fingers :)
Have a great week :)
