Hello and a very happy Wednesday to you all, well doesn't time
fly!!! I must have been having some fun along the way!!Hee hee
Here is my desk today....
Firstly can you spy my fabby fabric with the cats on? and.....
this is what's on the floor next to my desk, two bargains
of the week, this pillow which has the little split at the top, I
got for £1.00 from the Range, I just need the wadding from it
and will make Milton (a.k.a. Snooze Monster) a nice new bed!!
Will he be grateful? No, he will probably sniff at it and just jump
right back onto our bed!! I will make it anyway!!
Next to the pillow is this extremely gorgeous fabric from
Laura Ashley, they have a sale on at the moment and this
was reduced from....wait for it!..... £35.00!!! to £5.00!!WOW
with an extra 10% off!! Whoopee, don't know what I'm going
to do with that just yet, but as soon I get my hands to work with it
I will let you know, you can't miss a bargain like this now
can you girls! ...Now next on my desk is another set of baby cards,
this time Birth Announcement with a thank you note inside, I
have printed these off and just need to fix inside, then they will
go, (all 25 of them), plus those envelopes with matching pink hearts,
to their new owner.
Here's a little piccie of them, isn't she a cutie!
Next is a finished needle and pin book I have made with some
other beautiful LA fabric I have. I have been hand stitching on
and off for the last couple of weeks and finally finished it this
weekend! Hooray, here it is in stages......
Firstly when I cut out the fabric length I wanted to make
sure that this fab rose was directly on the front of the book!
I found this gorgeous ghost flower button too after rummaging
through my button box!
Then pinned all the lace and inside fabric together and
cut out 4 lengths of felt with pinking shears for the inside
to hold all the needles and pins.
This is the cover which I cut out from some very stiff card
and covered with some wadding!
Can you see that gorgeous card on my window sill? it's from
that very talented lady Maya, (go and visit her blog if you
haven't seen her work, it's just amazing)! what a gorgeous girl
she it, "Thanks Maya" it has pride of place in my posh easel
when I'm not photographing my cards.
So, getting back to my needle book, here is the finished
Finally, last but by no means least did you see this little
chap upside down on my desk? hee hee hee
Well he had a nasty fall from the window sill in the kitchen!
I do love him and every time I wipe the window sill down he
goes for a Burton!!! and falls right into the washing up bowl,
but today however, he hit hard terrain and his little sign broke,
so out came the glue and hey presto it's fixed, I might give him a
little touch up with some paint and pens as he is looking a
bit battered and bruised!! Phew must learn to clear my
desk before Wednesdays, how do writers sit at their computers
all day, typing away??? Hope you had fun looking and are
inspired, TFL, Happy Crafting, Sue xx
