What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday #135

The short answer to that is…..nothing! It’s very difficult to put anything on your desk when it’s had its legs removed and is propped up against the wall in the upstairs passage way. About a week before Christmas, I lost my little creative corner to make way for the tree. Only a couple more days until Twelfth Night, when I can reclaim it. In the meantime, I’m thinking about the projects waiting to be made.

A Clothkits skirt with a beautiful Rob Ryan design.

A little maze book to put my version of this face into, along with all the other fabulous faces I received in Mel’s swap.

P1010866

The bag that came with this book and still remains in pieces nearly a year later.

Those are just a few of the things on my ‘to do’ list and I’m looking forward to putting the legs back on my desk so that I can get started. This year I’ve pledged to A Make A Month which is being hosted by Annie over at The Felt Fairy. I’m actually hoping to make many more than that, but it’s not a bad place to start.

I’ve been making my way (slowly) through the list of bloggers taking part and popped in to say hello to some already. I’m happy to see a few familiar faces among them. If you’re joining in with this, please make yourself known. It’ll be great to get to know you and see your makes throughout the year.

If it’s actual desks you’re after, then you might want to pop over to Julia’s blog where you’ll find an abundance of them.

I’ll be back on Friday with Five Things I’m Loving. Hope to see you there.

Even though your desk is without legs you sure lots of eye candy here! Love the skirt, the heart and the bag on the cover of the book is great. I am definitely drawn to those colors.

I didn't participate today as I have absolutely nothing on my desk.

I'm also in Annie's Make-It Challenge. I joined late last year and didn't do too bad at my makes. This year I plan to show more of what I'm making.

Gosh, Clothkits, I remember them the first time round in the early '70s. I had some beautiful stuff from there and didn't know they were still going. Lots of great projects for you to get stuck into there.

This is a great idea. I shall have to add it to my list. I want to try and sew some things as well as doing the scrapbooking etc. I hope you get your legs back soon!

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

Ah! I love that skirt!!! And I was happy to see your sheet of colored in faces for Mel's swap project. Mine are tucked neatly into an envelope waiting for my shoulder to heal and then I'll be putting them into a little book as well. Can't wait to see what you come up with too. xo

Morti said...

Sorry I didn't get round to you last week, but you're a priority visit this week! Love your post this week - for a moment I thought the legs showing off the skirt were yours, till I read it. Fab design on that skirt, eh?

Might have to look at the A Make A Month blog thingy....

Happy New Year!

oooh... a deskless existence. Hopefully yours will grow legs and be back in action soon. I'm sure it is fun to dream of the next big project (or little one) but it will be even more fun to do it.

MaggieC said...

However have you coped without a desk for so long? You must have severe withdrawal symptoms by now. Hope you soon get back to normal and have a chance to get down to all those exciting projects. Maggie #72
