Hi lovely bloggy people

very quick post this week coz I have to finish what is on my 'desk' for tomorrow.
My good friend Lee is leaving our mutual work place for pastures new (boo hoo).
I left it a bit late to make her a leaving pressie.
I doubt if I will finish it unless I stay up all night . . . with the best  will in the world . . . . it's not going to happen!

This is the desk or tray I am beading it on.... it is a small thimble box.

Here is my normal desk  . . .  looking very abandoned but has a fab pressie from Elisabeth the silver scrapper      who has started  fab giveaway every saturday. . .  she is clearing out her massive book collection.

Lots of inspiration here so a BIG THANKYOU  to Elisabeth

If you are kind enough to leave a comment I will get back to you . . . .  eventually.
Usual rules apply please leave your Mr Linky no.
If you are wondering why I am showing this hop over to the stamping ground and see what     WOYWW  is all about . . . . the fab Julia keeps us  all under control (almost )
 see you on your desk very soon

PS I seem to hae deleted last weeks post . . .  does anyone know if I can get it back?


  1. I love the colours you are using in the thimble box..very elegant indeed! And, lucky you winning that very useful looking book from Elizabeth...hooray!
    Sorry, can't help with the blog retrieval...I'm a techno dunce :)
    Hugs, LLJ 27 xxxx

  2. great looking workspace! I tend to procrastinate too and leave things till being Wonder Woman wouldn't get it done! I don't think you can retrieve a deleted post but if you can post it so all of us can know how. I don't know how many times I have done that! Hope you have a great week and thanks for sharing!

  23. That beaded thimble box looks awesome, love the idea of working on felt so the beads don't scatter, never thought of that! Thanks for visiting my blog, waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

  24. Hope you got the pressie completed in time, Janet. It looks gorgeous and something your friend will appreciate. Thanks for the mention and I am so glad you are find the book useful. Love the photo you have taken of it ... maybe I should get you to photograph all my giveaways :)) Can't imagine how you have managed to delete that post and, of course, have absolutely no idea how to get it back ... the workings of blogger are a mystery to me. Hope someone can offer up a solution. Hope you have a great bank holiday weekend. Elizabeth x #92

  25. Love your busy desk and fabulous mini album. :)
