The past few weeks I have spent time focusing on projects/gifts for other people. The latest was another stripy blanket for a friends birthday. Now with that finished it's my turn for something.
Not to sound selfish in any way because I have not forgotten about my new desk. But I just needed to make something for myself to go along with my desk.
You see, the last week since starting to use the desk, I have been really protective of the desk. I have gone so far as to placing runners and cloths on it to keep it from being damaged in anyway. And yes, coasters are being used under individuals glasses when in the room. The girls have small table cloths they picked out for their areas and I dug out an old runner to use on my area. I won't speak on any length (maybe just a little) about my reaction on the first full day of usage when I saw a pencil smudge mark in one area. Let's just say it wasn't my finest hour.
While the old runner serves it's purpose, it just doesn't proclaim bright and cheery by any means. So I went to my fabric stash and dug out a little bundle that has been hoarded away for what seems forever. It is finally going to find a purpose in life. A very important purpose indeed. To be an ever important cheery protector for my desk. Not too much to ask of it. At least I don't think so.
Inspired by a book that I've had for a while, a patchy creation will be started this weekend.
I'm hoping that no one is expecting too much of me the rest of the weekend once I get started with this.
Dinner is now being put into the crock pot so no one starves around here. Planning is essential.
