WOYWW - June 9th

Well what a fantastic first anniversary we all shared along with our guru Julia for WOYWW ;o)  If you still haven't taken the plunge why not make this your first week and show us what you're working on or just the space where you create.  It doesn't matter whether you're a tidy or messy crafter we're non-judgmental on that front ;o)
I've gone for the aerial shot this week, I do like it.  My desk is a right old mess and as you can see I haven't put away the felt flowers I initially made for my felt vase, though I have used some this week.  I've got a couple of tags on show that I was working on in the wee small hours ('cos I couldn't sleep).  I had intended to do one for Linda's '10 Tags', which she's doing as a countdown to her trip to visit the maestro of craft Mr Tim.  However after faffing long enough and getting stuck for ideas I gave up :-/   I'm also showing my vase and flowers now residing on the windowsill just to the right of my desk mainly to show another project peeking out from behind, can you make it out?  Well time for a cuppa and a snoop - no cream cakes this week alas :o(
BTW if you spy dental floss I used it to sew something (it makes wonderfully strong thread) onto the green thing slightly visible last week, which is winging it's way to it's destination so I can't show it this week ;o)

Hi Anne gorgeous wallpaper on the new look blog,
Nice shot I think you will be using the pushback if you make something else, flowers are still looking good.

That vase is just lovely. Think you've got a fair bit on the go there. I did enjoy last week and managed to get to quite a few desks but paid later with bad neck etc. It's so frustrating as I wanted to see what everyone had made. Love BettyXXX

Dawn said...

Yep great flowers these were lovely last week and I don't care if the desk is messy (if it is i can see more) lol

Love the colours on those tags and love your desk too.

Artyjen said...

Love the flowers and what a fab idea for dental floss!!! :)
Yep...my desk is twice that big but the other side is slightly clearer as my paper cutter sits there full time and it would be difficult to use otherwise!! LOL
