WOYWW #207 Flashback!

Well, I don't know what you would call it when you actually don't get your post up on the day you are supposed to except to perhaps call it a flashback, right? :) Also going with the better late than never theory. lol  So, without any further ado, my desk, which I am showing to you courtesy of the ever fabulous Julia Dunnit via Stamping Ground:
And a close-up, just because. :)
And then, a brief, but mostly focused, 30 minutes later:
All that's left is to find someplace to store all the flowers I've been crocheting while on "bedrest". What do you think of my first attempt at crocheted cherries with stems and leaves? This card isn't finished, of course, but this is where I'm thinking to take it...

The top one was for my oldest nephew who graduated from highschool this year and the bottom one was for my youngest brother who graduated by receiving his highschool diploma equivalent from a Vo-tech. I used mini-envelopes inside the top one for family to write notes on and put money in. The robe on the bottom one I made envelope style so we could slip money in and it just stuck out in the area at top of the collar. :)
You would think with class out finally that I would have more time but I've had an inflamed gall bladder and a chest wall infection/inflammation for the last week and a half, plus two very big graduations in my family, to contend with. And a special trip to the ER, of course. Can't forget that! It's truly amazing how much one little organ can hurt and the amount of pain it can put you in. Hope everyone else is having a wonderful week!

  4. Wow - no bedrest, really? The crochet flowers are great -- but oh the cherries! Yum!

    The two graduation cards look very nice. I cheated and bought one -- and not really happy with the selection but time got away from me.

    Happy WOYWW

    1. Hey Sandee, I totally voted for you, at the beginning of this WOYWW, even though I couldn't find a link to see your project, still I'm sure it was the best! :) I posted it on FB, aren't we friends on there?
