 What's on your Workdesk Wednesday is once again upon us.  That time of the week when many of us share our desks (or floors) in whatever state they are.

This week once again I am sewing another Christmas pressie (or birthday as we have 6 Birthdays within 7 weeks of Christmas!!) so I have decamped to the dining room table.

This is an overhead shot, I am making something from natural colours this time.  Its another one of the items I made when I spent the day with LunchLady Jan the other month (you can see them on earlier posts...but I am staying a little cryptic as family sometimes read this).  Its a little smaller to fit the fabric panels I already had, by not having to make a patchwork I managed to finish it within 5 hrs (rather than the entire weekend it took me to make the last one without Jan stood over me-and unpicking for me!!).

My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are 'Crazy Star Hits Prez'...ooh, I will be watching the US news closely this week!!

Happy crafting



  1. Ooh are those the silky panels you had at Jan's - I love it already, fab colours. I know I say it a lot, but I woldn't be at all surprise dif your MBD cards are speaking truths....

  2. Glad you're on a roll with all the pressie ideas. Do show when finished. Happy WOYWW, Chris # 13

  3. All the best with the gift making you certainly are special to create lovely handmade pressies.

  8. Crazy Star Hits Prez? Does Prez mean president? Love the fabric, nice pattern! If I was as skilled with the machine as you, I would make the pressies too. But I am afraid I would loose all my friends, if I would do that :-)

  9. Using one fabric does speed the process up, but you've definitely got the knack now!! Yay :-) well done!!
    I'm going to take a leaf out of your book in the New Year and out together scrap pieces and make patchwork panels...just haven't got time before Christmas!
    Hope you're feeling better btw....
    Hugs, LLJ 21 xx
