Thinking of the song - Another Suitcase Another Hall!!
Wow – how quickly is the year flying by now and how cold has it got this week? It hardly seems like a week has gone by since last Wednesday.
As you know Wednesday means one thing to a bunch of crafters – WOYWW with the lovely Julia which means we take a photograph of our desks, some, like mine, messy desks, and then link up with the Desk Jockey and we hop around the world via desks. It is a lovely way of keeping up with blogging friends and at some desks there really is some inspirational work to be spied!
Without further ado here is my messy desk……
I know, I know, it looks no different from last week though I assure you it is different. For a start there are a load of stamps on there waiting to be cleaned (woops!) and put away. Monkey has now removed his hand from the pot and is supervising.
I have achieved some work in the meantime. I have made another suitcase journal for my cousin who is off to
next week as part of her celebrations for a big birthday. I will not share her age with you but think “ Australia …..”. She doesn’t look it though – honestly! I thought it would be Hawaii nice for her to keep a journal of her trip. I know I really enjoyed completing mine when I was in (note to self - share my Cornwall Journal with you next week – pinky promise!). Cornwall
I have also been concentrating on trying to finish my sewing project. Remember THIS post? I showed you some fabrics I was using for a new project. Well these are the blocks I was /am making. It is for a challenge at our Quilt Group. It has to be finished by Saturday morning! Yikes!! I will hopefully show you later this week if I finish it.
You may recall that I mentioned a tacking gun which I was using. Well you can see it on the right hand side. I know I had a few enquiries about it including the lovely Jan. It really is an invaluable tool and so much better than using safety pins to fasten the three layers together when quilting a project. If you enlarge the photo you should be able to see the little black tabs which can be snipped when the quilt/blocks are quilted. They also go under the machine without any problem and no risk of snapping the needle!!
Well, I am off to spot a few more desks whilst eating my lunch, then will try and catch up tonight once I have been dancing.
Don’t forget to pop along to Julia’s blog so that you can blog hop too.
Have a great week and see you all soon.
P.S. We have some new babies coming on Sunday so will share some piccies very soon.
