It’s time for the Wednesday Desk reveal and as Julia tries to keep her stalkers, sorry, I mean followers in line over at The Stamping Ground, I’ve taken a photo of my desk this morning and it’s looking very different.
When I saw this Advent Wall Hanging in a copy of Cross Stitcher I decided that it was
something I would like to stitch for one of the Kids Company Centres that I help stitch the cushions for, but if the truth be known, that was probably more than two years ago and I only managed to stitch about two of the little squares before having the trouble with my eyes, so it was put in a bag at the bottom of one of the cupboards in my craft room and forgotten about for a while.
I always fully intended to finish it, but when I pulled the bag out a week or so ago I discovered that the chart wasn’t with the stitching I’d already done and I couldn’t find it anywhere.
Luckily eBay came up trumps though and I managed to find a copy of the magazine, so yesterday I started sorting out some more threads to use.
The nice thing about the project is that everything I’m using has been donated.
All the threads you can see are either from the enormous gift from Sew and So or my lovely friend Nicki in Switzerland and the fabric I’m using was given to me be my equally lovely friend Lythan.
The only thing I might have to buy is the beads and fine ribbon I will need but I’ll have a look in my own stash first to see if I have anything before I go out shopping.
Thanks for stopping by this week.
I’m off to make a coffee now and then I'll settle down for a spot of desk hopping to see what you’re up to, via The Stamping Ground,
