What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? #278

It’s that time of the week again. Time to share our desks, floors, kitchen tables or anywhere else you happen to get your crafting done. Julia has all the details here.

Tuesday afternoon means class prepping and kitting. The sample was made last week and the kits for this card already cut. I just needed all the little extras that make the demonstration flow and I like to refresh my memory! Most of my ladies have been coming for a while now, but you never know when a technique will be new to them. I play it by ear on the day and show as much or as little as needed.

This week the technique is paper piecing. Not something I do very often myself and this will be the first time in class. I do love a bit of hand cutting. It’s so relaxing.

Hope to visit you all some time this afternoon, with a nice cup of coffee. Happy Wednesday!

Oh, what gorgeous little houses! I would love a set like that..was just admiring a new Papertrey set I spotted yesterday, but this is just as nice. I still need to buy that die cutting machine, though. Have a great class

I love little houses and these ones really appeal to me...I think it's the tall thin quality of them! I'm drawn to those paintings you see of terraced houses like these by a harbour...you know the ones?
Looking forward to meeting up in a couple of weeks!
Hugs, LLJ 30 xx

Love the little houses, and the paper piecing which gives such a great layered effect. Houses make great images for art, don't they! I enjoy fussy cutting, too. Hope the class goes well - I am sure everybody will have fun.
