It's What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, where we visit the desks of the craftily-minded.  You can take part here.

T minus 11 days (insert comedy gulp here).  Here's my desk this week...

My desk this week, as it has been for about two months, is my lap.  An accord has been struck with Taz (pictured) and I that she may sit next to me if she doesn't attack me everytime I move a bit of thread.  So far, so good.

With eleven days to go until the wedding, things have been somewhat fraught.  I'm really worried about the join line that runs along their necks.

I THINK I HAVE FOUND A FRAME FOR IT!  A chance discovery in Sainsbury's the other night produced the only frame I've found so far that might fit, with some mounting.  Egads.

Still, on the plus point, it's also only 11 days until my birthday week off.  And I won't be cross stitching that week, that's for sure.

Thanks for visiting.  I'll do my best to get to your page.  Have a great week! x


  1. Wow...That is turning out great. happy crafting

  2. That is impressive wow !!! hugs Nikki I'm posted Here

  3. Aww Lucy, I know you’re worried about the join in your stitching but it’s going to fine I’m sure. It’s only because you’re so focused on it that it looks so bad to you. Keep plugging away at it and I’m positive the couple will be thrilled with it when it’s finished.

    As for a frame, Have you checked out the charity shops. I’m always coming home with pictures and prints that have a frame I might be able to recycle for my stitching……..it’s well worth a look.

    Good luck with your stitching challenge, I’m sure you’ve going to get it finished in time.

    Happy Stitching!

  4. How awesome is that stitching you are doing it looks fantastic.. Have a great birthday week off.
    Happy WOYWW

  5. Happy WOYWW Lucy, or your lap!

    It is looking good, maybe when you finish it you can press it with a damp cloth and it will be fine.

    Well done on the frame find.

  6. Wowzers! Tricky piece but it is looking fab

  7. Wow you are making fabulous progress and it looks wonderful! Have a great week! Danie #25 (who is a tad late in visiting this week).

  8. I love the idea that you and the kitty have an accord..I think it will need renewal...!
    The piece is just amazing. Try to remember that it will be framed and hung, so will usually be seen as a whole from a relative distance..that join line only looks like a BIG DINOSAUR THING because you don't want it there and you're whipping yourself about it.
