WOYWW #202

It's not Wednesday today Julia, it's Sunday or perhaps Monday, isn't it?? I just cannot believe that last Wednesday was 7 days ago. Where have they gone?
At least that awful bug I had has gone - actually it's only gone to my hubby and he now admits to feeling sorry for the way I felt 'cos he's got a good dose.
So then, craft desk.
There's a little bit going on. I mixed some blue acrylic paint with black to make a darker blue which I'm in the process of using over some masking fluid on a tiny papier mache box. The lid is in the background drying as that is covered with modelling paste and I can't do anything with it until it is perfectly dry, perhaps tomorrow. Other than that, everything is as it always is apart from my new distress metallic paints which I have yet to play with.
I finally altered all 4 curtains and they look nice and bright against the new wallpaper. Just a couple of little painting jobs to do and a bit of scraping old paint from the glass brick wall and once the bathroom floor gets attention and new tiles, the porch area will be ready for a new carpet before next winter. Job done. However, the lovely red tv went back to the engineers last week because a DVD stuck in it and refused to come out again. It's due back tomorrow and hopefully won't go wrong again. Not looking good as this is the 2nd tv!! Watch this space on that one.
Right, I'm going to get the day started so I can spend between 2pm and 3pm watching Hels on Ideal World.
Happy WOYWW.

I am sat watching Hels while doing this blog hop she is so inspirational and I am looking forward to my workshop with her at the end of the month.
Your desk is showing some lovely stuff going on
Have a great WOYWW today and enjoy the rest of your week

Glad you're feeling better. Looks like you're well enough to craft and that's always the main thing, isn't it? :-)

Glad you are feeling better, and hoping your hubby is also. I'm thinking there's a DVD player virus going around, 2 of our 3 are down for the count. Hope your red tv is working well now. Happy DIY, sounds like you've been very productive. Thanks for visiting. #15
