Hi peeps
peeps by name and peeps by nature..... time once again to peep at workdesks all over the world.
 It is a very addictive phenomenom that is taking the craft world by storm.... watch out Tim.....  Julia is after your crown hee hee! stamping-ground.
If you are interested here is my desk this week.....  before and after shot . . . 

before GD Erin went to sleep for an hour

Getting ready to cut out squares and shapes for my next    lillybo quilts.

This is just before she woke up..... mid cutting.

Last week I showed the finished quilt. I only had the bag to make  to put it in.
 I haven't had a lot of time this week but I did finish it on sunday.
The qulit had a nautical  theme and the normal shape bag didn't seem quite right so I made it into a kit bag for a little sailor.

 Not much else going on, in fact, I am feeling a bit uninspired at the moment, it has been a long winter.... time for spring I think!
 I am going to Farnborough's 'Make -It' show on Friday maybe I just need some new stash.... MMMMM! Perhaps I will see you there ............I will be wearing my WOYWW stripey badge.
Usual rules apply and see you on a workdesk very soon



  1. The kit bag is a fantastic idea. Please to see the second quilt on it's way. Have fun on Friday! x

  2. Love the bag you made, what a brilliant idea. You got quite far in that hours nap...well done to you! #34

  17. Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous, I had to pop back and have another look at it and the bag is stunning. That's the bit I really struggled with but yours really looks beautiful. Someone little person is going to be very happy to receive this.
    Well done on starting another too.

  18. That's wonderful fabric Janet! I love the idea of the kit bag too. Well done on getting anything done at all with your GD around!

  19. Brilliant idea to make a kit-bag, some little boy will be thrilled with that. Looking forward to seeing quilt number 2 as that fabric looks very pretty.
    Thanks for visiting yesterday. Back is much better today but I've been crafting standing up again (very bad habit) so I'm having a rest and catching up with WOYWW desks.
