Afternoon WOYWWers (and any other visitor)
Yes, its that time of the week again when we reveal whats on our workdesk - hence Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday - hosted by the genial hostess Julia over at Stamping Ground. Check Julia's desk out then read the comments where people leave a link to their very own workdesk/space/area - and sometimes reveal more.
This feature to me has been somewhat of a godsend while I've been off work sick for the last 8 weeks (already?!?!?!). If I hadn't discovered blogging and the wonderful people through this feature - I might have handled my current situation very differently by focussing on that rather than 'meeting' (in the virtual sense) some talented crafters and lovely people out there in blogland. So thank you one and all.
I've had a bit of a lie-in this morning, then the dog grooming lady came to sort out my Woolley Baby (AKA Dylan the Bedlington) - so before and after pics at the end of this post for you.
Anyhow, she's gone and he's stopped quaking/panting so here I am blogging my space and some additional never seen before swings to the left!!
Before I reveal the first pic, I have to tell you that I DID clear up last night as the mess i'd created over the past couple of days was doing my head in - things kept falling off the table into the dogs water bowl and it was only a matter of time until it was something that would be ruined beyond rescue - as it happens, so far its only been a can of spray glue and the resident can of hairspray thats landed there. For purposes of clarification - the dogs bowl is to the left of my desk on the floor which is just inside the kitchen itself.
Without further ado - here is my table ready for me to create - which might not be today now being as I will be 'visiting' everone else for the rest of the day...
Nothing exciting about the desk today. So i'll show you the top of my high shelf unit where I store my ribbons (this is to my right if you look at previous posts)
Next is a picture of some more organza flowers I made last night and the one I showed in my last post - but with a gem glued in the middle of the button - which I DID colour black in the end
Now, here we have a box of organza glittery leaves which have been in the garage for a couple of years - I dragged them out last night with the bag of organza which I made the (above) flowers with (pure experiment). Not sure what I'm going to use the leaves for yet though.
Right, here we have the swing to the left which is actually my kitchen. The conservatory, where I am located, is open plan to the kitchen which enables me to multi-task (yeh-right!!!) (p.s. - those fairy lights on my willow sticks are on 365 days a year - I haven't fogotten to take them down from Christmas!!!)
Please don't zoom in or you will see the muck!!!
Next is another view of the wall to the rear of the table - the canvas is one that I made as a piece of inoffensive wall art - basically a frame with some nice material on - when I get fed up or change my colour scheme - it'll cost me a couple of metres of fabric!! Also - the tumble dryer usually lives in the garage but i refused to keep fighting my way to the back of the garage with wet washing and falling over bikes, golf clubs & trolleys etc etc so it came in the kitchen a couple of months ago so the engineer could mend the door catch - I wouldn't let OH take it back (until pegging out weather is here anyway):
Finally - my Woolley Baby (Dylan) before:
Hope you enjoyed. If so - hop over the Julia's and why not join in. Now i'm off to get a Tramadol and a coffee and go visit everyone else and leave a comment to let them know i've been.
Thanks for dropping by, please leave a comment or become a follower to keep up to date with my random ramblings,
