What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #330

Guess what? I actually have a desk shot for you this week.

























I'm playing with my new embossing folders and dies. Coming up with a plan for next week's class. It's the first session of the month, in which we make four cards. The class is split down the middle. Half would like Christmas cards, the other half wouldn't. I always like to get double duty from my seasonal products so the answer is obvious. Make one Christmas and one birthday card from each.

























Once I've finished giving myself brain ache with that task, I'll be pondering which of these fabrics to use in a little quilt for a new arrival. Gender unknown and due around Christmas time, I'd better get my skates on!

Linking up with Julia and the deskers on this sunny September afternoon.

Good luck with your class projects. The fabrics are all so pretty. It's going to be a difficult choice. Sounds as if you're in for a busy time. Barbxx

Ooh, go yellow and grey! I saw a beautiful baby room in yellow and grey on Pinterest recently. It was stunning.

Best of luck with your cards.

Gorgeous selection of fabrics - it's a hard choice but my fave is the green spotty with little bunnies on - so cute! Have a great week and enjoy playing with your new stash,

I love all those fabrics! But more importantly, you just reminded me to get out my embossing folders for a card I'm making up! Thanks for your sweet visit. Sandy Leigh #37

Love your workspace, nothing like a bit of die cutting as a workout!!!
I'd go for the yellow and grey but those tiny birds are just so cute .... difficult choice but whichever you go for I'm sure it will be lovely and much appreciated.
Take care

Love those fabrics, Fiona - personally would go with the cute little birds - have we all chosen differently?! Uh oh! If you read all these before making your choice, then you are in for a hard time...
Take care. God bless.

It's hard to keep everyone happy, isn't it? But your plan sounds like you've got all the bases covered :-)
The fabric is gorgeous btw, it'll make a wonderful quilt!

Well go you! Super impressed that you're going to make them products domtwo jobs, and even more impressed that you've got customers who aren't yet ready for Christmas ideas!
Aren't all the fabrics sweet? No help from me I'm afraid...I just go for the bright co!ours!

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

That's a good compromise to keep everyone happy. Love the fabric swatches - they will make a cute baby blanket. Have fun with your new dies. Don't you just love playing with new stuff? Thanks for visiting earlier, and sorry it took me this long to get back! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle

I got the falling snow embossing folder too - interested to see what you do with it. Those fabrics are lovely

Diane Baker-Williams said...

My vote goes for the fabric with the birds and hearts on a wire! I haven't made the leap yet into embossing or die cut machine although I am thinking about it fairly seriously. Looking forward to seeing photos of the completed cards.

Linda said...

Hope your class went well! Wish I lived near so I could come!! I made a baby quilt with the blue elephant fabric and the rest of the collection(I bought a charm pack). Do let us know which fabric and quilt design you choose!

alexa said...

That's a nice clutch of very pretty fabrics - love those blues ... And aren't you kind, offering a choice? No wonder they keep coming :).

Sandra said...

Im very much liking the bird fabric and the pinwheel one next to it, the yellow and taupe. Lovely. Xx

Barbara Eads said...
