WOYWW - 14th April 2010

Hi WOYWWers ;-)

a lot has happened on my desk during the week.

A few of you have always commented on how neat it usually is, but I have proof that it does get messy ;-)
Here we are right in the middle of making the sidestep card for my swap partner over on CraftMad

I had three attempts at making this card - the first one for my SIL came together so easily, I think I got over confident for this one ;-)
I rearranged part of the desk (while I was trying to come up with another birthday card for a friend) and will try keeping my inks right in front of me, instead of in the drawer that is open in the first photo above.

This is my desk this morning.  I went to Spotlight and used my "spend $100.00 and get $40.00 off" voucher.  I knew I was going to need more of the blue jelly rolls I had previously got for the baby throw rug and decided to get some backing material too.
There is also a batch of purple fat quarters there - I am going to make something for my sister - she loves purple!

The Lecien Shabby Roses quilt fabric purchased from http://www.theozmaterialgirls.com/ has been washed and I have started cutting the strips ready for my simple log cabin pattern.

I am so pleased with myself this week.  I have completed both my card & sewing swaps for CraftMad, my first official comissioned Birthday Card has been accepted (I just have to change the wording on the front) I have made a start on the quilt (something I have been wanting to try for years)  and ........... I have lost 1 kg!!!!  YAY

want to have a nosy on other people's workspaces?   visit here and have a look ;-) or you can click on the WOYWW link in my sidebar.
