WEDNESDAY AGAIN ALREADY???
Blimey, Wednesdays don't half come around regularly these days ... and it's time for What's On Your Workdesk again - I blame Julia, it was all her idea. So here we are again having a good ole nosey around each other's workspaces. Today I am mostly sewing bits of felt, as you can see. Made my daughter a cover for her iphone and then sort of couldn't stop, so made these as well! Now I can't think for the life of me what to do with them - I haven't got one of those luscious gadgets myself, although I live in hope (not much because DH says I don't need one). What's that got to do with anything?? Maybe I'll start aspiring to an Apple Tablet instead - if I win the lottery ... In the meantime, maybe I should start an Etsy shop for mobile phone covers??
You may like to pause and admire my special system for organising embroidery silks, which is an original design of my own? This is how you make one.
1. Send out for takeaway
2. Eat said takeaway (spiced chicken and cashew nuts if you're interested)
3. Wash takeaway container (or better still, get somebody else to do it for you)
4. Use container to hold neat skeins of embroidery silk
5. Ponder at length how said neat skeins turned into tangled MESS? Come on now, who did that??
Other items of note include card for friend, trusty fine-tip glue bottle with which I do just about everything, and picture cut out of magazine for my inspiration file. No coffee so far, but the kettle is ON if you want to pop round?
