Yikes - Wednesday! Really? That means WOYWW!

Hello Peeps

Well this sure has been a brilliant weekend with a fabulous spread of pomp and ceremony and good old Britishness!  However, whilst I was enjoying my little self yesterday I forgot that it was Wednesday today!  So Happy Wednesday, and Happy WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday as if you didn't know)!

I cannot show you my ATC which I made as I don't think the recipient has received  it yet and I don't want to spoil the surprise.  I can tell you I have received a few beauties today and I have a lickle project in mind for them!  We shall see what happens.

Well this week I decided it was high time I cleared my sewing machine of the blanket of dust and got stuck into the quilt I am supposed to be making for our quilting group's challenge (I have to have it finished by October - Oops!).  

No I am not making bunting!  That is Jan's job and I wouldn't like to upset her!  Hee Hee!  I am chain sewing though!

And look who has crept over from the other desk to be in the shot!  Well I wouldn't like to upset his fans now would I?

Well, regular visitors to my blog should know what to do now, take a picture of your desk and link up with the lovely Julia and join in the Wednesday madness.

I will try to get around to you in the next evening or so if I don't manage today (I am late after all).

You have reminded me to get back to my sewing machine - too long away! My current unfinished doll has been sitting there for such a long time now! Good luck with your quilt! Wishing you a happy one!

Sarah said...

time to get quilting methinks....October will arrive with a crash I'm sure. I love sewing and should do it more often. Dresses or trousers....we will see! Still pottering around here - not a peep and finding plenty to do. Thanks so much for calling by - enjoy your week, Sarah.

I forgot too until early this morning (usually do it tues evening) doh. What is chain sewing, is it a group thing where lots of you make one thing?

How good to get that sewing machine out and dust it off. Good luck with the quilt. I'll bet you can knock it out by October.

He he, chain sewing...not one of the most harmful chain habits!!! Any deadline is useful, but for me, october would be too far away to make me good on you gal!
Your ATC arrived yesterday, and the 'notions'...its gorgeous, and i love the mayhem idea..thanks thanks thanks. X
