WOYWW #180

Hey, it's WEDNESDAY. I joined this group What's on your Workdesk Wednesday well over a year ago when I lived in England. I didn't think I would still be doing it. I don't join in every Wednesday, but most of them. If you don't know what I am talking about (where have you been????) then have a look at this lady's blog. She started it, it's fun.

I only just realised it was (nearly) Wednesday, so rushed up to my desk and took a photo. Bit of a mess as I left it in a hurry a couple of days ago to get to the post box.

A different angle this week, taking in the view of my new drawers which makes my desk seem a little bigger and a bit more organised. See I am learning from all you proper crafters. We bought some shelves too. So on the drawers are my WIP's (Christmas trees, cut out bunting and cowl). There is a reason I haven't finished any of these yet and that is because I took in part in a challenge going on over at Jo's Blog. We are making angels and sending them flying all over the world. So for the last week I have been creating two angels. One has gone already (hence the dash to the post office) and the other is wrapped and ready to fly on my desk. I can't show these yet until they have been received.

Poor monkey is still disembodied and the only other thing new there is a Christmas Ideas book I got from the library. Not had much time to look a it but never mind.

I had a lot of comments last week about the loft space I use to craft in. It is a huge space, not fully finished. One comment said it looked like I had been put in quarantine (that was funny). Half of it is used for guests and has a bed, hanging rail, drawers plus an extra airbed. It is also used by the kids to set up their train track, castle, scalextric and car track. So I can't have it all, and it is a bit messy and disorganised because I want to wait until it is all drywalled (plaster boarded) before I start adding proper storage, after all it will all have to be moved out for the work to be done. (Finding someone to do the work is another story!!!).

Okay, I am off to look at everyone else's space now and get some inspiration for finishing all my unfinished stuff. See you later x

Wow, you have your sewing machine out on the table. I don't know when I last saw mine. It must be in a closet some where. Can't wait to see your angels. #22

Every little bit of work surface counts. The addition of the drawers is a great idea

Your desk looks like it is just waiting for you to sit down and finish off all you've started. Lots of lovely crafting there.
Can't wait for my angel to arrive. She'll need a good rest after her long flight! Will be posting our No2 draw soon.

Mess? Nooo, it's called craft in progress and is necessary for the creative process!

Don't sell yourself short Famfa, you ARE a proper crafter! Look at all these lovely things you make! Hope the postman was as disinterested in the angels as he was the knitted Christmas Trees!! Beware though, I started out with one set of plastic drawers and now I have a whole room full of stuff!! Yup, winter is definitely on the way!!
