What’s On Your Work Desk Wednesday?

What’s On Your Work Desk Wednesday?

Yes it’s that day again ……………….and I’ve only just remembered, so here’s a few photo’s of what’s on my table this week.


I’m in a mess as usual (most of which is out of shot……namely on the floor Lol!) but at least there’s a space on my desk to work on for a change.
You will notice a small pile of Christmas cards on the corner of the table. These are for a few orders that I've been asked to make and the good news is that I’ve managed to finish my own cards too.

These are the order cards. (All A5 size)











You can also just glimpse the felt Christmas stocking that I have been hand stitching over the last week or two.

Way back in 1981 I brought two Bucilla Kits while on holiday in Florida, intending to stitch them for my God Daughters. Every year since the stockings are hung from the mantelpiece but now Nichola is married, Paul feels left out when the girls hang up their stockings so I was asked to do one for him too.



As you can see there’s such a lot of detail in it and it was great fun to stitch too.


Bucilla do some nice tree skirts too and I would love to do one of those at some point but I don’t think it will be in time for this Christmas as I’m still also stitching the squares for the hospice quilts. May be next year!

Don’t think there’s anything else on my desk that might be of interest other than my new storage from my Promarkers and Marvy LePlumes.

It’s just an IKIA CD rack that’s been given a quick Decopatch treatment, the trouble with that was that I got a bit carried away and also Decopatched my tool holder and the round tin I keep the foam for my Distress inks in……..oh yes, and a book end but you can’t see that in the photo.

Well that’s it from me for now.
