Hello again!  It's another week's peek at crafty desks across the globe and you can join in too by clicking  here.

This is my desk this week...

I am currently painstakenly filling in all the washed out areas on my favourite top with a dye pen.  I can't do more than 10 mins at a time due to sheer boredom, but I'm not ready to let it go, so suffer I must.

There is a pile of stitchbows waiting for m to wrap my DMC flosses onto.  That will probably happen on Sunday.

OH is a computer game nut and he has been known to buy limited edition merchandise.  The foldy paper you see with shapes on is a 3D tab Duke Nuken doll.  Oh yes.  I will show him off next week to you all.

The wedding present continues.  Starting to get irked with it now.  Don't worry, this is perfectly normal behaviour for me.  When I start a cross stitch, I am in love with it.  Then comes the obsession in stitching it every waking minute that I am not at work.  Then I get irked, start to dispise the piece and at the point of handing it over to it's new owner, I utterly hate the thing.  Thank goodness I have a deadline!

Thanks for peeking at my desk this week!


  1. I love cross stitch but I find it takes forever to see any progress

    Thanks for sharing and have a great week

  2. Can't wait to see the finished x stitch but then, neither can you! Are you going to the Larmer Tree Festival? We are, can't wait!
    Hugs. Pam#28

  3. Oooh! Haven't done any cross stitch for ages and I only work on small pieces so can't imagine how you cope with a big piece like this!Chris117

  4. hey lucy
    not sure what the nuke doll is, is it some sort of monkey!!!!!!!!!!
    wedding stitching is looking good

  5. Cross stitching is something I never did get into, but I hate it when a fun project becomes a work project. I know that irk-some feeling all to well.

  6. I haven't crossed stitch in while. I do have about 5 or 6 unfinished projects, and enough materials to start another 5 or 6. I usually find myself a few stitches off 2/3rd's of the way through and end up shelfing whatever I'm working on. I started Art Journaling about a year ago instead. I find it much more enjoyable. I am looking forward to seeing the finished project. Stitch on!!!!! I've started following you. :)

  7. Goodness, that looks like a detailed cross stitch, well done. Thank you for your visit.
