WOYWW273 my cure for piles

Hi deskers 
Goodness but these Wednesdays come around quick .... Maybe it's just that I have been so busy and it was a bank holiday weekend .... So I'm a day behind. 
Anyway desk time again, if you are of a nosey disposition and like crafty stuff ....Even if you don't it's very interesting. 
Different desk this week . ...... aka my dining room table

I'm in the middle of making a bag. Using up some of those zips I have had on my desk for a few weeks .... Well that was the plan.... But none of them were the right colour/size / type .... Oh well c'est la vie. 
The little yellow pot has my wonder clips in ... Magic little clips I use instead of pins 
Here's the bag......

I love this fabric. I'm making it as a carry on bag for our trip to Colorado next month.... Just in case there is any mistaking us for locals. Lol
I have also found a cure for piles ... On my usual desk.....

I was recently given 10 of these beauties I haven't filled all of them yet .... Give me time .... Just give me time. 

If you would like to know more about me and my schtuff, I am joining in with The  Creative Blog Hop next Monday so pay me a visit if you can. 
Anyway that's all folks  if you would like me to visit you back .... please leave your name and number so I can find you.

    I will be popping back on Monday!
    Lots of hugs,

  12. Wow, I love that London fabric, so bright and makes for a terrific tote. The spotty pocket goes well too! A great back to stuff all your junk in when you're on your jollies. Not long to go now!
    And those can cream for that, you know ........ ;-)
    Hugs, LLJ 20 xx

  13. Wow, your bag is fab, they will stop and ask you about it, never mind just admiring glances! Rather loving the box shaped piles - crikey, I hope you didn't have to bring them home on the train!

  14. I adore your new bag! I'm a container junky so your new boxes really caught my eye.....grin
    Krisha #19............Have a great trip

  15. Hi Janet, sorry we didn't get to see you Saturday! Love the bag, and I have a mass of similar boxes I store stuff in. Love the fact I can put labels on them to try and remind me whats in them! lol. I shell be checking your Creative blog hop, I'm doing mine in a couple of weeks too. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #54 xx

  16. there will be no mistaking you as a local in CO, if fact there are bound to be comments that will start brilliant conversations. Love that bag.
    Be well Carole #50

  17. Hi Janet,

    Great bag! I'm curious to know where in Colorado you'll be? I lived in between Golden and Boulder for a while while I was working at Rocky Flats (which has long ago been shutdown). Lucky you to get those storage boxes! Great organization.

    Thank you for visiting me already this morning.
    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs, Kay (57)

  18. Super bag and fab boxes am sure you will fill them in no time!! Take care Zo xx 41

  19. I can't cure piles Lol! I just keep moving them to the next one but I keep trying. Nice bag, should be very useful.
    Have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x 34

  20. I love your bag. I am so jealous of gals that sew. I'm afraid I am a lost cause. Your room is way too organized. Enjoy your trip to Colorado. My best buddy lives there. You are going at the perfect time.

  21. Lol at your blog post title, Janet!! Ha ha!! I see you've got the same sewing machine as me. I got it in May but unfortunately have been too busy with other projects to get going on it yet. It's beautiful, isn't it! I love your bag, and the fabric is really great, and I am sure it will generate lots of comments. I am also taking part in the Creative Blog Hop - my post was on Monday this week. I am interested in the clips you use instead of pins - can you give me some more info about these, please?

    Thanks for your visit and your nice comment - lol re my poor desk! I am hoping to garner enough energy today to get the office sorted (my hubby has brought the rug down from the loft) and then maybe I can actually get at the desk!

    If you want the full recipe for the fruit lasagne, please email me - I am sure it would work with any kind of fruit - plums sound great! The apple one is certainly delicious.

    Have a great trip to Colorado, and happy belated WOYWW,

  22. love that post title too! I love the bag and there is such a conglomerate of people in Colorado you might get confused! Found out my sewing machine I haven't used in 10 years was a brand name one...Janome...still doesn't make me feel anymore like sewing then I did before. I need to get into it again cause I used to make all my clothes and house hold items. Have a fun trip. Vickie #75

  23. Love that fabric you are using. Great idea. Great bag but what are these magic clips?
    Enjoy your trip!
    Hugs, Neet 14 xx

  24. That bag is gorgeous, so bright and cheery. Plus it's functional, you can use if in London if you get lost but that won't help in Colorado I suppose. Glad you managed to clear up your problem with piles :)
    Have a great week.
    Von #15

  25. Oh wow, your bag is absolutely gorgeous, love that London fabric and your lining is wonderful too. I hope you have a wonderful time in Colorado! Anne x

  26. Too late for WOYWW I know! My computer is rubbish this week so I have got a bit behind with myself. Glad to see you have been busy with lovely crafty activity. - I love that bag fabric. x Jo

  27. Such useful boxes! And I do love that bag...fab fabric for sure. Just sneaking in some visits I missed last week as its been manic around here :)

    MA (7 last week, I think)
