 Happy What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, well on my desk is sewing! 

 I haven't sewn for ages BUT I didn't really have a choice.  My old allotment jeans (which have already been patched on the bum and crotch a couple years ago) were on the verge of getting me arrested as I realised my knickers and goodness knows what else were on show!  Now, I cant be bothered to patch the knees but the crotch is a different matter!!  So, first I had to trawl through all my scraps to find some demin then I did a quick repair job!  I doubt I will get another year out of them, but if I can get them to last until the summer then chances are a pair of my non allotment jeans will be ready for re purposing!

Also peeking out of my sewing box is (if I recall) a pin cushion from Lunch Lady Jan at one of the WOYWW crops from many years ago, still in use and going strong!  Thanks Jan!

My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are good, nice and simple "Wanted, Hero Cop" - nice.

Hope you are all ok and happy crafting



  1. well done on the jeans patching - can't have you appearing on the news being arrested for indecency at the allotment!! take care and have a good week Helen #2

  2. I am sure you will feel less drafty from now on! Happy WOYWW and have a great week. Angela #13

  3. Evening Kyla. Glad you found a spare bit of fabric! You would have been giving the poor old guys on the allotments conniptions.
    Take care. God bless.

  4. LOL! Who among us doesn't have one of Jan's fabric creations? Not many, I guess. I have a little rubbish bin that hangs beside my desk. And funnily enough I just patched the Hubster's most treasured and comfy jeans Sunday, so I feel your mending pain. Hero Cop sounds great right about now.
    Happy late-in-the-day WOYWW

  5. Hi Kyla, interesting 'Man Bites Dog' again! I can understand you mending the jeans. I have two pairs that I wear when walking the dogs but so far the main holes are on the knees so now I am very fashionable Lol! Maybe I should sell them on line Lol! Have a lovely creative woyww. Hugs, Angela x15x

  6. Woohooo on the repairs Kyla, you'll be toasty now at the plot. It's something I'm needing to do with mine urgently 🧵 loving your cards this week! Wishing you good things in the days ahead. Love and hugs Tracy #17 xxx

  7. Well done on getting a few months from your work jeans!
    Happy WOYWW!

  9. Ha, indecency on allotments! Bet that selection of words isn’t in the MBD pack!! I think once it gets to crutch patching for the second time, you’re allowed to call them finished, surely?!! If you’re not bothering to patch the leg holes, do wear some woolly tights dear gal, jeans aren’t exactly warm for rickety bones!!

    1. ooh I didnt think to wear woolly tights underneath! Julia thats brilliant, but yes, I do think I need to rethink my allotment jeans soon!!
