- WOYWW #193

Is it really Wednesday again?

Are you absolute sure?

If you’re positive, then I guess I have to show you a picture of my table for What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Julia’s blog has all the details you need to join in, so hop across and add your name to Mr. Linky and then wait for all the nosey parkers……I mean likeminded crafters to call in for coffee.

I've had a busy week working on some Cross Stitch and finishing of the shawl I was knitting but if you remember, when you visited me last week I was just about to make a start on a LO for my heritage album.
Well, I finished that and also did a little alteration on an old LO of some of my school photos, so if you want a photos are always good for a can see both LO's over on my Heritage Blog.

Here’s my table this morning.

After seeing the speed at which the quilts are rolling in for Jo’s LillyBo quilt project, which by the way are all beautiful, I thought I’d better make some more cards because she's going to be running low very soon, so that’s what I’ve been making this morning.

There’s eight sitting at the back of the table waiting to be finished off and Jo said she really liked the hexagon ones, so I’m hoping to do some more of them a little later in the week.

The problem with those though is that I had to hand cut all the pieces, so they took me ages to make. I’ve ordered a die now, so I’m just waiting for it to arrive and it should make it all a lot quicker and easier.
As soon as they are done I’ll send them off to join this little lot that were sent a week or so ago.

You can see then in more detail on the LillyBo Blog

You’ll have noticed there’s no little helper on my table this morning…….that’s because he’s here………all curled up in my sewing basket on the sofa.

I think he’s decided that it’s too cold outside, so as I’m not sitting stitching, he's had his breakfast and moved in on my basket.

Well that’s from me for now.
I’m taking my neighbor to hospital this afternoon for the first check up after having a cataract removed, so I’ll see you all later.

Happy Crafting!

Wow, Sue, I think your contribution to the LilyBo appeal is marvellous. You seem to be getting on really well with the LOs for your Heritage album, which implies you're enjoying it...isn't it great to have so much to do reallY!

Your cards are lovely, your helper has the right idea though, snuggled up against the cold, not sure about the sleeping in a sewing basket though. We prefer the bed. :)

All those beautiful cards, Sue, you have been busy.
I had to laugh, it looked like our Oscar curled up on the basket there. They look like twins like that but so different stood up.

I love all those cards you've been making for Jo, they're really pretty. The die will definitely make things easier. Could BoJangles have found a more uncomfortable place to lie, lol!! What is it about cats and boxes or baskets!

I think the basket might be just a little (tiny tiny bit) too small for your helper. LOL April #119
