Friday Fun Day with Smiles.

 Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Angela here again to show you what I've been up to this week.


I seem to have got behind with stuff as I think there may have been some distraction recently so I'm on catch up but we did have a day out at the seaside last week and called in at the hotel where we used to take my parents. It's not changed very much and I'm pleased to say it was full. I think there are lots of retired people taking their holiday when the children are back at school.


I had to show you this one! 
Poor Stan what he has to put up with, he's so understanding.


And after her rest Daisy can't wait to join me in the cabin though I don't think she will ever make a crafter as she prefers to chew the paper and card though maybe she will become a Grungy crafter because that's how the card looks when she's finished with it Lol!

I have a few more photos from the Steampunk festival too. It seems ages ago now but I'll show them to you anyway.

 
Lots more shopping, though I didn't buy anything.
Too bust taking the photos I think.
 
 
Though the hats were very tempting.
I think hat are something you either love or hate.
 
 
There were some amazing costumes again.
 

And it's pretty obvious they were having a good time standing outside the Magna Carta which is a public house not far from the Castle. 
Lincoln Castle still has an original copy of the Magna Carta of which there are only four left in the country.

 
It's not just the ladies that like to dress up but the gentlemen too.
 

And there are a few crazy outfits that surprise me every year.

 I think everyone likes having their photo taken though I always ask politely first.
I guess if you dress up and np one wants a photo you might feel a bit disappointed.
 
I am so loving this dress.
 

And that's it more or less though I have loads more.


I've added this on, though it's difficult to place it here because of it's length but this is the old asylum as was and which gave the festival it's name. 
You can see just how many people attend too.



I think that might be enough for this week so I'm going to leave you with just some Schnauzer Smiles.




Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.

And if you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.

WOYWW - 694 - What's On your Workdesk Wednesday.

 Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends. 
We are here for another Wednesday at the Workdesk and here is:
"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".


If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
Stamping Ground, our host Julia will explain.

It's been a sad time here in the Uk with the death of our much loved queen but I have managed a bit of time for some crafting. It's a good way to escape for a while.

So here is my desk for today! It's a bit photo heavy but promised to show you the process of the MDF violin so you only have yourselves to blame Lol!

More from the Cabin desk today.
The Violin contiues to make progress and here's where I'm up to.
 But if you missed last week which was the start you can find it here:
 
 
It's time to start putting everything together.
These side pieces will conect the top and bottom body sections
 
 
and it looks like this.
 
 
If you plan to leave the sides open you would have decortated the inside before adding these side and top pieces but that's not my plan.

 
I'm putting the Scroll and the Fingerboard together while I wait for the main section to dry. This is not a project that can be rushed.
 

The next part is to attach the sides usually known as the Rib. I've used some card from old postage envelopes, 'waste not want not' as they say. 
My tip for adding card to a curved surface like this is to roll it around a rolling pin or something similar before attaching it.
 


You can see here how the Chin rest and the Tailpiece will fit in place but that's for later.


 
From there I've started decorating the sides which I wanted to be textured so I've used some screwed up tissue paper which was actually the wrapping for the kit so more chance to use it rather than lose it. Gel medium is best for attaching this.
 
 
All ready for the next stage.
 
 
These little pieces are the pegs.
 

Which fit into the Scroll and hold the strings.
I think that's enough for today and hope to have got a bit further by next week fingers crossed!

I know that some of you were hoping it might play when finished but I can reasure you it will only be decorative which I'm sure my neighbours will be happy to hear!
So that's me done for today.

 Thanks for stopping by and hope you will pop over and join in the visits around the other desks.

 I'm off now to see what everyone else is up to.
Have a great woyww 
and 
happy crafting,

Friday Fun Day with Smiles.

 Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Angela here again to show you what I've been up to.
This post was planned for last week but due to the death of our beloved queen I suspended it.
 

I hope that I don't bore you but here are a few more photos from the Steampunk Festival that took place over the Bank Holiday at the Lincoln Asylum.

 
These were a group of German visitors having fun.


More stalls where you can buy all those things you never knew you needed unless of course you are a Steampunk follower.

 
Pretty lady, nice dress. 
She is stood at the front of the cathedral.

 
It's great to see how much effort people put into the costumes.

 
So many happy faces too.

 
If that's what dressing up does for you maybe we should all do it!

 
They must spend the rest of the year preparing for these. 

 
And what about a ride round the Cathedral.
Such a sweet horse too.

 
And if you get a bit tired you can always stop off for a pint. Maybe that's why they look so happy!


I think that is enough for today but there will be a few more next week.
 
So I've found a few funny Schnauzer advertisements that I thought you might like.

 
I had to include this one as it reminded me that Maisie did exactly this when she was a puppy.
 
 
There is always plenty of this goping on as they are scruffs too!
 
 
And when you've finished washing their stuff you need to wash them!
 
Hope that made you smile a little.
 
  
My own little Schnauzer is growing fast.
 

And Stan is here to try and keep things in order though he can be just as naughty when he's in the mood. 
As you can see on the right we have dog toys everywhere though she actually prefers the apples that have fallen from the trees outside to play with.

Have a great weekend everyone and
 thanks for stopping by.

And if you would like some more smiles you just need to pop over to see what our other friends have been doing this week at Annie's for
"This Week's Smiles" and you can also share your  smiles too.
