It's Wer-wer-wer-Wednesday!  Time to start looking at other crafters work spaces for inspiration at Stamping Ground, courtesy of Ms. Julia.

My desk this week...
What a mess - about four projects on the go.  Nothing new then.  Got the book out of the library.  It's really good, but covers too many bases.  Think I just want a modern needlecraft book.  Cough sweets for my sore throat. Still going with the Christmas labels as received too more bags of Christmas cards last week.  IT WILL NEVER END.  Lollipops are obviously for my sore throat.  New cross stitch for  friend's birthday in August.  Will be slow going because upon realising I didn't have any 14ct Aida left in the right size, I opted for the 22ct i had so I could get on with it.  It will look ace, but my eyes are unhappy by the smallness of it all.

Due to a very successful birthday party for OH this weekend just gone, I am starting to think about mine, even though it isn't until August.  I want to make fabric invitations and have a tutorial informing me what I should do.  That's why the felt is out, although I now think I will opt for a cotton fabric instead.  Time to save up for interfacing, vol-au-vents and fabric, which I can do soon as I am neither paying to have my washing machine fixed (my sister offered us hers) or buying OH flights to Sweden (OH's best friend is doing that instead).  Winner.

To those who have enquired, this is what my face looks like most of the time...sat in my little corner of Narnia, naturally.

Go and have a look at other peoples desks now - thank you for looking at mine! xxx

  3. You are a brave woman...it's been a long time since I've used 22 ct.! In fact it's been a long time since I've done any counted cross stitch work. Best of luck with the project. Have a good week.
