Today I am joining in with Whats on your Workdesk Wednesday?
I am currently sitting at my desk in the loft and I am freezing. It is snowing outside and although the drive has been cleared once, it is covered again. I am fed up of the snow now.
Anyway, my desk........
Today I have been sewing. A friend of mine came over last week and I showed her how to crochet a foundation row. In return she showed me some tips on my sewing machine and left me with homework to do - a sample piece of different stitches and try and get them straight. Ha that's funny. I did them but straight they are NOT! She is going to show me how to make a simple bag and we are going to use the sample somehow. Exciting.
Left of the table is Sock Monkey Hat, lovingly put there by Smallest - this means it needs mending in some way. No note needed, I just have to find out what is wrong with it. Earlier I found an Imp with a bell beside it which meant "Please Mummy can you sew his bell back on".
Right of my table is my new sock that I started on Friday. This is the one knitted on the very expensive yarn. It has two cables and a heart pattern going up the front. A bit tricky and needs some concentration but I like it. I undid it three times on Friday and once more on Saturday (each time back to the beginning). I am now at the heel part and am very pleased with myself.
At the front are my gorgeous Kirstie Allsop Haberdashery Scissors that my lovely friend sent me for my Birthday last year, a box of pins and some thread and other scissors (how many pairs of scissors does one girl need? And what are they all doing there?).
I hope to visit more of y than I managed last week - very poor - MUST DO BETTER!
