WOYWW132 is that my mess?

hi world
Not sure who made this mess on my desk but i dont think it was me 'coz I have been downstairs in the kitchen.
No I confess, this is the mess I made not working at my desk yesterday. Pop over to head peeker  JULIA DUNNIT 'S blog to see some more interesting desks.

I have been working in the kitchen this week (no, not cooking, although I made a mean batch of flapjacks on sunday). Sewing! I made a stocking for my granddaughter, so santa could leave her some pressies

She went to see him at the weekend.
Cute eh! I dont think she is very impressed.

This week I have been busy making some new decs for our tree ( handyman amazed me by announcing that he is going to decorate it this year , so that should be interesting).
 These were inspired by Mollie Makes magazine (not Kirstie Allsop, more on her later)

The heart shapes were cut on the big shot.They are simply decorated with cotton Perle thread, stuffed and finished with a button and ribbon. I'm enjoying making these, even at 3 am when I cannot sleep. Dont ask!!
Kirsty Allsop make a heart shaped garland on her homemade Christmas programme the other night. so I cleared a small space on the desk.

And made these...... not for Christmas but to put over the window in my craft room..... they still need decoratring  and I had to ask myself why I was making them when I still have a lot of Christmas stuff to do. . .  the answer... why not.

hope to see you on your desk later . . . after work. . .  and shopping. . .  and dinner. . .  and washing up...... so much to do , I still have a huge pile of wrapping too!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Wow - so many beautiful things on your desk! I adore those tree decorations. Your embroidery stitches are so even :) I'm envious of that skill for sure! And I love your heart garland too, great combination of fabrics. How are you going to attach them to the tape?

  3. That desk! That heart banner - love it, love it! I still miss having a stocking at Christmas (never grew up maybe!!) have a great week.

  4. Lot of fun stuff going on at your desk and not this week. Love the grandbabes stocking and that picture with Santa is priceless. Don't know whether she likes that jolly old elf or not. Thanks for sharing! Have a great week and Happy Holidays! Vickie #35

  5. I think Father Christmas is pretty odd too! I really like those Christmas tree decorations, great memories of my own childhood there. That heart garland is wonderful, my boy said it nearly blew him off his feet!

  6. Good morning; thought I'd pop in to say Hi quickly. Hope you have a fabulous and creative week. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us today.

  9. What a great post! Your granddaughter with Santa reminds me of a photo I have of me and Santa. I'll have to dig that up. That stocking will be a treasure for many, many years.

    The ornaments are very nice too.
