What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? #253

It’s the Easter holidays here and I’m back at the kitchen table. Not because my desk is a mess, although it is. I’m there to keep my girl company while she revises.

I had a production line going for a bunch of tags, to pop into the parcels I’m sending out today.

Later the space was taken by my sewing machine. More on that very soon. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen a few progress reports!

Want to know what everyone else has been up to? Head on over to Julia’s place to find out.

Pretty tags! I quite like the flowery cutouts that were left too - I'm a bit random like that :-)
Sewing, huh? I wanna see what you're doing! Did you see the Great British Sewing Bee final? After my favourite Linda left, I was bereft but thought that the winner deserved it, she'd been good all the way through! (I didn't mention names just in case you'd not seen it yet!!)
Hugs, LLJ 47 xx

Neet said...

Mmmm what can those tags be being used for in such a quantity? Wish I knew what instagram is and then I would get an answer. Patience will wait until next time.
Hugs and thanks for visiting me earlier - Neet xx

That's a very organised workspace Fiona. [Self-contained, repetitive crafting is sometimes the best for productivity isn't it!]

Lovely tags!

When I see stamp and punch or stamp and die sets I am always tempted. Then I just fall back on scissors and wonder why they don't look quite so nice and precise... cute cards!

Happy WOYWW!

G'day Fiona. Happy WOYWW day to you. I'm a returning WOYWW after almost a years break. Lovely tags you are making there. I had a wee look at other posts and I love that card in a box. Ive seen a few folks have made them...must try and find out how to make one myself.

Lovely tags, Fiona. All the best for the revision to your daughter. Hey well one - tackling making a dress! Not on any social media, so can't look it up - but will look forward to seeing the finished item!
Thanks for already visiting, and for your thoughts toward my hubby.
Take care.

Sandy Leigh said...

Oh your tags are so cute! And yes, it is very unusual for me to be no. 1--first time ever, and I wasn't trying to do that! I have seen so many crafters at the kitchen or dining table today--love it. Happy sewing! Thanks for stopping by! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #1

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh I remember this...keeping my girl company which also meant keeping her on task sometimes!! But actually, just sitting together and being there is precious enough in our rush about days, huh. pretty tags, I love the border that the punches give to the images.

Chrysalis said...

Gail said...

The tags look lovely. Ok not being from the UK - what is revision? I keep seeing people talking about it but I'm at a loss what it is.

Lisa-Jane said...

I love the idea of these stamp and cut flowers and I think Paula was quite partial too! I hope the crop was worthwhile for you and we WILL meet soon! xx

Louise said...

lovely tags..good luck with the revision x

Lizzie said...

Such pretty tags!
I was marvelling at the co-incidence, that the flowers on the "patterned paper" were an exact match for the punch... Then I decided they must be from the same range and designed that way.
Finally, I worked out (with the aid of your previous posts!), that the pattern on the flowers is actually Stamped on, with a matching stamp (is it Stampin' Up?).
Anyway, it's very pretty and the tags look lovely!
