What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? #195

I’ve been out and about today and came home to find my scheduled post hadn’t posted at all. Now it doesn’t make a lot of sense! Here’s the edited version.

P1020538

In the background some red winceyette (reminds me of sheets I had when I was a little girl), a couple of notebooks (for my daughter), a new magazine (that I haven’t even opened yet), a pattern I was lucky enough to be given (more about that on Friday) and thread (to match the fabric from last week).

The spoils of my little trip to Salisbury to meet some lovely fellow WOYWWers. We had a great time looking at fabric and wool and chatting about anything and everything. Jan gave me a cute little fabric basket, which you can see on her blog today.

Right, there are a million other things I should be doing, so I’d better go do them. First on the list is making a jug of hot chocolate for my frozen children, when they walk through the door in a few minutes. Once I’ve got the washing in, I think I might need one too. Linking up with the lovely Julia and her merry band of desk hoppers.

PS For those who worry that clicking on my links will end up forcing them to buy pretty things (you know who you are!) I haven’t added any of those kind today, I promise. You’re quite safe!

PPS Hopefully I’ve worded that better now and it won’t upset anyone. That was never my intention. I don’t think it was being read in the spirit it was written.

Ah, I can see that you went back to Paperchase after we said our goodbyes! Those are cute notebooks :) Is the quilting mag any good? I find that a lot of these mags are full of adverts or things I don't want to make!

You put your washing OUT? Wasn't it stiff as a board today? Actually this afternoon was a bit more spring like and less freeze your boobage off so it might have been fine. And a big fat PAH to people who are rude on other people's blogs. Enjoy the mags!

So you are the blessed recipient of Jan's cutey cute little tote bag! I am jelly...I love that bag. But more than that, I wish I could meet my dear friend Jan in person! Maybe someday--I hope to actually Skype into the crop in June. Your magazine looks fun--I love magazines...and really cute little notebooks for your daughter. You were right, when I went to find you on Mr. Linky he is gone! But, I found you anyway, and I'm so glad you visited. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #52

Hot chocolate on offer! I am on my way over to yours. We have given up putting the washing outside at the moment but instead have ought a new airer and put it into the spare bedroom which gets lots of sun (when it is around) and it dries there. Have a lovely time with those mags. xx Maggie #15
