WOYWW #274...sick as a dog...

Meh..I am a bad patient. I have had a rotten cold, that has turned into a chest I am moaning and blah.

Anyway onto happier things - WOYWW..yep one whole entire week has passed and it is time to join Julia and the gang over at Julia's blog Stamping Ground for the weekly desk nose.

So my desk is quiet after an action packed weekend of crafting..there was supposed to be sewing done, but I realised I was missing the right coloured threads. On my desk you can see, my most fave thing - my notebook..if I lose him I will literally die, new stamps, stencils and embossing folders that were on sale and are mini and perfect for OWH. T-rule..I love this newish addition to my kit, cards for posting, a distress ink blending tool that should have been put away, a try out of new sparkle embossing powder - more practice needed and ME!

Here is a pic of what I should have been sewing..Ma bought me x2 new tops, but because of my large boobies, they didn't fit, so cue modify / enlarge mode - cut out x3 panels (sides and back) and insert contrasting lace..

Refashioned top
Just need the right colour thread now.

To finish up this week here is a Thank you card, made for the Mr & Mrs at the second wedding. The lettering is a Tim Holtz Sizzix die and all the papers are scraps - yay me!

Wedding Thanks
Their colours were red, white and black and I love that giant red pearl!

Happy WOYWW everyone see you in the comment zone later :)

  3. Post travel colds are the worst!!! I blame the airlines. I love how your altering the tops; I keep hoping I win the lottery so i can hire a tailor to adjust my whole wardrobe! (I break out in hives threading a needle; my sewing mother is so disappointed) I'm in awe of the tidiness of your desk; have a great week and I hope you feel better soon!

  4. Feel better soon! So sorry you are not feeling well. I like your tags on the photo of your desk. I would like to know how to do that. So much, I can't do with my Blog, because I can't figure it out. LOL You are doing amazing things to that top! TFS #37
