WOYWW #201 - stitched warning

Today is Wednesday (well its actually Tuesday because I am five hours behind the UK where Miss Julia starts the revelry that is What's on your Workdesk, Wednesday?), and I have a desk to show you.

My cardi, now has a back and a side.

A new sign I am working on. PLEASE MIND YOUR HEAD. All hand stitched which for me is a work of art as I am not a stitcher! Anyway, the reason for these words of warning is because when we had the loft finished, we moved a light switch so we could switch the light on and off upstairs. However it is now just under the slanted ceiling and because it is all a pale creamy colour (Natural Wicker is the correct name!), we keep banging our head. Hope it will do the trick. I think I am going to machine sew it onto another piece of fabric and then stitch it around a canvas to hang just above the switch.

A small pile of bunting to carry on Small's batman bunting for his room.

And the honour for 'best on table' goes to Pouffe for his splendid cover which is nearly finished, just need to add a few rows underneath to keep him all snug and warm. I am very pleased with this lovely bit of crocheting as I didn't follow a pattern. I just went round and round in a spiral single crocheting and double crocheting and then added a row of slip stitches and crocheted into the back (too technical?) to make the flatness required for the the top and another one underneath to keep it secure.

So that is my desk and now I would like to go and look at everyone else's. it's always a great place to go for inspiration.

Ooh look at that! What every self respecting pouffe should be wearing this season! I still like Duck or Grouse for a mind your head sign, always makes me chuckle!

All that knitting is so great and the cover is really special.
For some reason I get up early on Wednesday to post my WOYWW and low and behold I forget until 2 hours later!

Oooh I love your stitched lettering! There's a completely different style of creative lettering over on my blog today. I'd love to have a loft, I could convert it into a huge craftroom just for me...*dreams*

Sometimes all it takes is an aide memoirs to jog you out of the danger zone...and yours is going to be a very pretty one indeed :)

Hello Famfa! Jumbleberries here.

I haven't been able to pop by for a while, so I have been doing some mega catching up with all your lovely makes. The angry bird cake is fantastic and I love your embroidery on the 'mind your head' sign. Great stuff.
