Hello peeps, Wednesday again so that can only mean one thing....yep, I have to show you my workdesk!!  Now I have a confession (no, not that....those of you who know me would have already seen THOSE photos on Facebook!!) but this is not my desk, and I took the photo at the weekend.

My workdesk is actually full of work at the moment, so I cannot show you that so I decanted downstairs to the dining room which can only mean one thing...sewing!

Now this is the great thing about WOYWW.  Because of it and the crops I have met many of you in person and you are all great.  Because of the things I see on your blogs I end up being inspired to try some of them myself.  So a few weeks back I met up with  LunchLady Jan and had a sewing session where I made a bag (the red one towards the rear of the picture), there was a full posting about it a few posts back.

I decided it was time to gird my loins and have a crack at some more sewing (machine is out of sight in this photo).  It took all weekend (and some timely advice from Jan over the internet, thanks Jan!) but I have made another one (sorry cannot show the finished product as I plan on gifting it at Christmas...unless like the red on I keep it for myself!!).

My 'Man Bites Dog' cards this week are "Nurse Defends Dead Priest"....ooh, some of these are really gruesome!

So, hop on over to the lovely Julia's blog (link over on the right) and share your desk for a legal snoop at desks across the globe.  We are a friendly bunch and there are TONS of ideas out there.

Happy crafting

  11. Hi Kyla, I was happily going round all the 6's then I remembered I should be actually going round the 9's, 6's were last time I joined in! I love the bag, well done on making it. You have me curious about the cards now, and I will check out the previous post on the bag.

  12. Lol those cards always make me giggle. Your sewing is fab love what you've done! Take care Zo xx 80

  13. Fab fabric :) Love the combos you have laid out. Lucky recipient indeed, and oh yes, MBD is always good but seemingly heavily weighted towards death and scandal! Sure fire attention grabbing headlines in the real world so only to be expected :)

    Happy (late again) WOYWW!

  14. Well done you for having a go at that. Yes, I agree, that looking at other people's desks gives one inspiration. I'm trying new things too because of that. Even things outside my comfort zone.
    I love the fabric you have on your desk. I hope we get to see the photos after Christmas...
    Thanks for letting me look over your shoulder,
    Have a good week,
    Sorry I'm late but I take my time going through them all. (I enjoy reading all the blogs and look at the photos)

  15. Hi Kyla, not sure if I'm running late for this weeks WOYWW, or early for next!Love those fabrics on your desk, I do love brown shades, and the gold/silver are fab.Look forward to the after-gifting pics. Have a great week, hugs, Shaz #20

  16. I commented the other day but can't recall if it was before WV popped up. What I see NOW is just the comment box, as I would expect. If it remains true to form, as soon as I finish the comment and tick Comment as: Wordpress rather than Goggle, either the number verification will pop up, or the Word one will (based on the fact I have already used up the ones it'll allow before I hit whatever limit Goggle has imposed to try to stop spammers) and probably the screen will jump to the bottom so I don't get to SEE if the step has been added unless I scroll back to the top and check. I have to re-submit the comment sometimes so I may have the chance to add more here to be accurate but I won't know untill I try :)


    Yes it is letting me add but I grabbed the screen so you can see it - I'll email it to you :)
