Whats on my workdesk this Wednesday.

My workdesk is prety bare at the moment. 'The Doc' and I caught the flu bug just before christmas so we have been hunkered down proping one another up, guzzling fast quantities of cough medicine and very little else. Felt too sick to finish off the glass painting and the reindeer never did get their sleigh to pull either.
So what can you see today. The package to the right is the present that I got from my blogging buddy Sherry (cut out cardboard shapes and instructions for making up a covered box).Playing with some colour schemes on that as we speak. I have been designng and making up a patchwork bag and now just have the closure to finish but can't decide between a covered button or a buckle. The felt tea pot is a proto type for a teapot stand that I'm playing around with and the blue material will eventually be a french press coffee cover. The bundle of brown material is going to be something to do with 'Owls' and I have another 3 swaps coming up which I need to get moving on too. Now where did I put my sissors!!!!


  1. hope you arew feeling better Mrs A..maybe some choklit would do the trick as it's a wonderful medicine!!


  2. Hope you're both on the mend,look forward to seeing what you produce with your goodies.
    keep well

  5. I hope you and the Doc are back up to speed; the same happened to the King and I. Nyquil works wonders! Lovely crafts you are always involved in, Mrs. A. More swaps - wowzer! How do you do it woman? :-) You're amazing! Stay warm and hope you all have a very Happy New Year 2011.

  6. You've got lots going on, lost scissors, do it all the time! Hope your feeling better soon. Wishing you a Happy Creative 2011. Carolxx

  7. Glad you are on the mend; there have been some truly nasty bugs around this year. Poor you and The Doc for having it over Christmas.

    It has to be said that you are clearly making up for lost time - my, that's busy! That's a very cute teapot stand.

    Can I just say how much I enjoyed all your advent matchbox posting. I didn't comment on them all, but loved seeing the daily updates, and also your boxes for Faye.

    Happy New Year to you, and may your crafty mojo be back to its usual bountifulness (should such a word exist?).


  8. Love your little teHappy creative crafting in the New Year. Thanks for the peek and sharing, hugs Marjo #10

  12. Oh dear, these horrible bugs seem to travel everywhere - hope you're on the mend now. Happy New Year and look forward to seeing you in the future on WOYWW :-)

  13. This was a very inspiring visit, I'm feeling an urgent need to uncover my sewing machine. Looking forward to see your finished projects (the buckle is great but I have a soft spot for covered buttons).

    Happy New Year!


  14. Oh you are there! Hope you're feeling well enough to craft again soon, you'll b climbing the walls otherwise. Defo a covered button if you've not already done the buckle!

  15. Great looking desk, and some good ideas too, like the sounds of a coffee press cover! Hope you feel up to getting back in the groove again soon.

  17. Hello, Mrs A, I was reading your blog and thought, gosh you sound just like Faye and then when I read some more, I realised that you are Faye's mother! So, pleased to meet you! Sorry to hear that you had the lurgy over Christmas too, as did I. Intriguing bits and pieces on your desk. Thanks for sharing. keeleyxx

  20. I realize I'm late getting here. I thought I had been here, but when I had to reboot, I lost track of where I was and now it's 2011 already. Took me a whole year to reach you (grin). Sorry to read you have been sick. I hope by now you are much better and back to making lovely art or at least trying out those color combinations. Happy belated New Year and I'll see you again on Wednesday.


Thankyou for spending a few moments here today. I'd love to hear from you.
