Watch out for Pirates!


A day of Pirate play with my Grandson resulted in a Treasure Chest and this rather fetching hat cut out on my Cameo.

Aye Aye Captain!

Felt and a Pencil Roll

 
 
 
I made this felt sample many years ago and it has moved around the house ever since with no real purpose. So I decided to stitch pockets into it a turn it into a safe place to keep my special pens.

What's on your workdesk Wednesday? 229

Today has been all about the sewing, my trusty machine has been working hard as I start to make gifts for Christmas presents. So sadly I cannot share just yet.

Here is my desk today, There has been a little indulgent re-arrangement this week and a bit of prettying up.





As you can see there is another Papier Mache visitor on my desk and the makings of a card.


I coloured some acetate with Pro Markers and decided to go bling-tastic with the gems!

Thank you all with the name suggestions for my Rabbits, I have decided to go with Flora and Herbert.

So if you are wondering why I am showing my desk pop over to Stamping Ground where you will be able to visit many more.

WOYWW? 227

Here we are again on Wednesday showing of what is or isn't on our desks. I have been busy completing quite a few 'secret' projects this week which I hope to be able to share soon.

Here is my desk this week.........


Not really much happening except some photograph printing and  two very special rabbits! Not only was Mr Rabbit splendidly attired but I made him a lady friend.

 
I could really do with help giving them names if you have any ideas?
 
This is what I am busy doing today, seeing my Daughter presented with her Masters'.

WOYWW? 226

I'm back....missed anther week or two....had so many jobs on the go!

Here is my desk this week.....


As you can see the laptop is in evidence and this is still firmly attached to the Cameo Cutting Machine. I have been working hard designing and converting images into cutting files. It all makes me sound very techy ....but it isn't that hard.

I love paper cut designs and these are the reason for buying the machine. Here is one of my designs a little personalised scene.


 
I have also been working on wedding invitations for my Daughter.....the Save the Dates are now done (the names have been edited out of the picture)...phew!
 


In case anyone was wondering about my Papier Mache rabbit, he now has a top coat and is waiting for his clothes to be made.

If you wonder why I am showing you my messy desk pop over to Stamping Ground where you can view desks from all over the world.
