It What's O Your Work-desk Week again and it's week 193. It's your opportunity to have a look at the work desks of the crafty minded, and you can do so by going here.
Here is my desk this week:
I got two books out of the library. Techno Textiles is astonishing and is jam packed full of technological fabrics like Kevlar, Neoprene, astronaut suit fabrics, etc and is also full of pictures of brightly coloured and highly textured textiles. I like to get inspiration from it. The other book is Fleece Dolls and inspired me to get two dolls I made years ago out again. When I can get some fleece, I'm trying out some of the designs.
The Diatom cross stitch for Nathan's birthday is carrying on apace. I am currently working the perimeter of the piece and have had to baste the edges to try and halt the disintegration of the fabric.
My colleague Fairy Thoughts and I have decided to pack in the chocolate for Lent, which starts today. I have also decided to pack in the fizzy pop, crisps, biscuits, cake and sweets and intend to throw myself into my crafting for that time, so hope to get more work done than I have done lately. Hopefully the increase in crafting with replace the lack of sugar and results should be seen. We'll see!
Go and be a nosey peep and take a look at the other desks! x
