OMGIWA What's on Your Workdesk?

No really, it is Wednesday already, and because it's December, the Wednesdays are definitely rolling around faster than they usually do. Official. So ask me - what are you working on? You know I've finished with Christmas cards apart from writing and distributing of course, and that's what I was doing at my desk until.......Good grief Charlie Brown! Not even paper stitching or anything too clever; you can tell from the state of my desk that it was almost on a whim - there's paper and card and stamps as usual, plus the sewing stuff. Wipso will probably faint. See, I'm in a Secret Sister Santa thing across the pond and it's all about 'thrift' and re-use, with quite a small budget. Well, I bought some bits and pieces pertaining to my Secret Sister's likes and dislikes and last night, in a frenzy of getting things posted, I suddenly decided that instead of sending offcuts of the very British designed fabrics, I'd use them. So I sewed some into the shape of a notebook cover. (One of the small Moleskines that I mentioned before). As I've already blown the secret part (although I have no idea if she reads this, or if indeed, she knows it's destined for her), I shall not show you the erm, masterpiece until after Christmas when we're all showing off the beautiful hand made gifts we receive and give. Yup. I'm expecting a show and tell!
Workshop preparations today - part of tomorrow's food based workshop (to 'use' up the chocolate at last!) will be this fetching and easy bottle gift label. And to clear up questions over the number of chocolate bars - I'l have to get more, I need 21 and they are 5 per pack. You lot have been like the chocolate police!

Come on then, show us your workdesk/space/floor/lap tray/blah. Be brave, we wanna see what you're working on. Upload to your blog or eme a picture and I'll upload it here. Leave a comment here and we'll all trot round for a gander. Or a turkey. Ho Ho Ho.

I'm in a right pickle, Chrissy card production gone mad! I can't find my camera charger either... but there was just about enough juice in the battery for this picture.
There's something new on my desk too!

Wow, your desk looks a veritable hive of activity. I love the way the sewing machine is just plonked in there among everything else - shows you're really going with the creativity flow!

I've WOYWWd - and even managed to do it on the right day for once!

I just finished my first blog for WOMDW! It's kinda fun to let the world in on your crafting space! I love the idea of your bottle tag I have a friend that loves wine and this would be a fun gift to give her!

I really can't believe its Wednesday, of course that means its Thursday tomorrow so last day before the weekend for me and of course Thursday night wine club! I'm very impressed you have your sewing machine out, but I'm not going to let my OH see it as he may get ideas and leave mine on my desk as a hint to take up his 3 pairs of trousers! Here is my muddle . Pam x

Jay said...

Oh Julia, sewing eh!
I'm sorry I'm going to miss the chocolate workshop, I've double booked I'm afraid (works do, I'd rather be crafting).
Not much crafting going on on my desk this week either. You can see what I've been doing here if you wish: http://jay-dailydeliberations.blogspot.com/

my5bratz said...

you showing me up, my machine is still gathering dust, lol...I've actually "started" a project but who knows if I'll finish it..lol

Sam said...

Oops - I am a bit late in the day for WOYWW!! But here is my messy desk!

A sewing machine on your desk? I don't think that I even have a sewing machine, but I could certainly do a posse of chocolate police!! ha ha!

Sam said...

P.S. WOYWW is definitely getting bigger each week - this list is going to take me a while to get through!!

LadyBug said...

sewing????? WOW come on then show us what ya made!!! I was ever so late in blogging last night and din't even get the chance for a stroll around blog land :( these pups are starting to keep me busy!

Fiona Whitehead said...

Nothing on my desk but a load of rubbish - I think I'm done with the whole crafting thing now until after Christmas - although I am making a few Christmas tags. Going to have a big sort out and get rid of a load of stuff now that I'm not doing SU anymore - hope you have a great Christmas Julia x

Caroline said...

I am actually mortified that I am showing the state of my desk online - but you can see some work in progress as I have started Tims Tags! Well you MIGHT just be able to spot them amongst everything else, lol...x

It’s good to see the sewing machine out Julie; mine’s not seen the light of day for well over a year!

The last of my Christmas cards are On My Work Desk this week if you want to pop by for a quick look.
