Woyww #185 - a messy panic

Well it's Wednesday, and the only reason I knew it was Wednesday this morning was because Brenda (thanks Brenda) posted a WOYWW. Whoops. I wasn't going to do it, but when I looked at my desk and saw what a mess it was in, I thought, well, you'd want to see that surely?


Now lets see if I can identify what's on the actual table.

Still a couple of imps. One finished and one still waiting for his limbs to be sewn on and a cheeky face to be added. My sock, which I have to say does look like a sock now (thank goodness). Whether I will ever start the second one - who knows - may just frame the first one! My ideas and pattern book. Cup of coffee. Sewing Machine. Moo and I spent a couple of hours on it the other evening. We had bought some PJ bottoms and we didn't like them (final sale) so we made a stocking from one for me.

I was quite pleased with the results. We got in a right mess with it. Changed the foot, tried out some monogramming (is that right?), took the whole bobbin sitting bit apart, re-threaded everything and it worked. Wahooo. I love my machine, it makes a sewist (sewer) out of a novice - fabulous.

Oh no, just noticed those damn badges are still there to be sewn on uniforms. And I haven't started the candy cane sleighs yet. Piddle! What I do know is, my desk is a bloomin' mess and I better get stuff finished and wrapped and tidy it up. MUST NOT START ANY NEW PROJECTS, MUST FINISH OLD ONES FIRST!!!!!

Right, I am going to try and check out everyone's else's desk. Apologies to those I didn't get back to or visit last week. I blame my Mum being here. Feel guilty sitting looking at the IPad for a whole day when she travelled across the World to be with us.

Fab desk today - well done you for making the stocking out of PJs!! Did you do the leaves and name by free machining? I've never done that. I shall have to consult the manual to see if my machine can do it! It's ever so effective and reminds me of Poppy Treffry's stuff (google her sometime, her stuff is lovely!)
Thank you for all the fab comments, support and friendship this year. I really have appreciated means a lot. And your Korknisse look awesome on top of my piano - they make me smile every time I look at them :)
Sending hugs and love for a Happy Christmas!

Shame the pj's didn't work out but they make a lovely stocking instead. You HAVE to make a second sock! Think how proud you'll be when you can finally wear them. Glad you're having fun with Moo, sounds like you two are very similar.

Such a good idea to make a stocking from the pj bottoms! I know what you mean about wanting to start new projects when there are still old ones to finish, it's so tempting to try new things though!

Have a lovely Christmas!
