WOYWW 136

Ive been busy having a massive tidy up so wasn't going to participate this week but then some goodies turned turned up in the post this morning.
You can see my January page of the calendar challenge I did last year in the background. On my laptop are some wooden fairy doors from Jan at Picto. Ordered for onward delivery to the Yorkshire division (of the family) so I havn't breached my pledge of only using stash up in 2012! Two sets of bag handles that I won from Annie The Felt lady so I will be sorting some material out to make a bag up later when I have my two hands back. A stamp I have rooted out (I keep all mine in a large plastic see through box too Julia, don't even seperate them from clear/rubber.) to use on the next tag challenge and lastly a packet of stash goodies from my blogging buddie Sherry. We are doing another swap together and this time I have set the challenge of each sending the other 4 items from our stash for the other to add to and then make an item to be sent back again. (See I'm so sticking to my pleadge UIU). This way we will be making something totally differentg for one another. Should be fun. Sherry has sent me design paper, lace, pearls and a green voile rose trim. Need to get my thinking cap on now. I have sent my 4 items off and Sherry is probably going to have a fit when she sees my choice.!!!! Well I never said i'd make it easy Sherry. Tee Hee!
So back to the sorting now. My desk might look tidy but the floor sure dosen't.
Pop on over to Julia's blog if you have a chance today, grbp a coffee and have a rummage/good old snoop around a few other desks . You never know what you might find.

  5. You are too clever for words but alas I am not in your league....I should have said how many dress packs did we cut out....please go back and have another guess and as another little hint there aren't many who realise just what a great team we make :-)

  6. Step away from the shoes!! LOL. Go on, pass them on, you'll feel better :) I'm signing up to Use It Up as well. I do actually get through a lot of fabric, so have to keep replenishing my stocks, but am going to use up all the bits and pieces, even if they end up as draught excluder stuffing!
    Hugs, LLJ #36 xx

  7. That swap with Sherry sounds fun. I might try that with one of my friends to see if we can stimulate each other to try new things (using old stash, of course). I have bought a couple of new stamps, but only because they were from Barbara Gray, and went with a partial set I already had. Otherwise I have been good and dived into the offcuts box. I also have loads of decoupage sheets already printed and stored in plastic wallets - those are the next target. I think breadmaking in the caravan will have to be without breadmaker. I can imagine my DH's face if I asked him to put the breadmaker into the already over loaded van. I shall try it out before going away to see what works. xx Maggie #105

  9. I started following because of Annie's Monthly Make, but hadn't realised you were a fellow WOYWW'er too! I love the patchwork on your desk. Is it a sewing machine cover?

  14. Some lovely stuff on your desk this week and I think the patchwork cushion/sewing machine cover is beautiful and very clever. My StepD does a lot of patchwork, even making me a bedspread for my 60th. Good luck with the swap - love to know what you sent your swap partner - and thanks for calling in on my blog.

  15. Very pretty calendar page on show and I can see that you're using it too. I haven't bought anything new this year either, but then again, I just got a ton of stash for my birthday too! I posted the wrong link to WOYWW, I'm actually at 103.

    Hugs

  16. It makes me feel so much that so many people mention how they pile on the floor. I find the floor to be a convenient locations too. Happy crafting!

  17. Ah, what a great challenge idea. (she says....being relieved that she's not in it)! But it does seem very hard!! Like your calendar page very much. No last minute stuff from you eh?

  19. I love everything on your desk! The calendar is fabulous and those doors.... aren't they the cutest things ever!
    I admire your pledge for using up stash you already have. Apparently I am not strong enough for that challenge as I have already bought stuff, lol!
    Thanks for the visit earlier!

  20. I do go and craft in between the various process of bread making, so I don't really lose out. the other thing is that if anyone has annoyed you, you can take it out on them while you are kneading the bread, Very therapeutic! Maggie #105
