Blogtoberfest Day 29: On my desk….

 I’ve been reviving some of my crochet skills from years ago – just little bits and pieces that only take a few minutes to complete. I bought a book on crochet motifs which has all kinds of lovely patterns  – hexagons, circles, squares, triangles etc. I’ve been making little flowers and sewing them onto felt circles with a vintage button for the centre. Not sure what I’m going to do with them yet – brooches perhaps?? But they’re fun and easy to make while I sit in front of the telly in the evenings.

 I also made these button flowers, but I’ll have to be less sloppy with the glue. (I don’t mind gluing craft buttons, but I don’t like to use glue on good vintage buttons – I always sew them so they can be re-used).

So I cheated a bit because that was the kitchen bench, not my desk. Here is my desk (or at least, one of them). It’s waiting for me to be on holidays after Christmas so I can clean up all the crap!
