Wednesday. Well that must mean it's the day to show you my desk. In fact I am joining in with WOYWW which translates to What's on your Workdesk Wednesday, but you know that already.
Well it's a messy desk. These days I just tend to run up here, sew a bit, cut a bit, pin a bit and then run down again. No time to tidy the floor, the ironing board or the desk. My Huffle has just stolen the ironing board so I can't show you what was on there but it was a pile of fabrics, a tub of pins and an iron.
This is probably vey similar to last week. My strips of fabric waiting to be cut on my mat. Behind the sewing machine is a Mason Jar which I am filling with any off cuts of material (too small to use for sewing). I saw this tip on one of your blogs somewhere, saying that you never knew when you might need a thin strip of fabric or thread. Good idea and it looks pretty too. My scissors are there (not my good ones just the snippy ones) and a tin with pins in it. Main stage is my sewing machine. I am getting more confident by the day.
And just to prove I am making progress with my quilt, here is where I am so far....
Each little square is 2.5" x 2.5" to to give you perspective. The ones on the edge are waiting to be sewed together but I was planning what colours I needed next. I have to say, I am finding it very therapeutic and the boys came up the other day. The Smallest one said "WOW that's going to be brilliant, will it have buttons on the end like my quilt cover?". The Small one said "Mummy that's amazing, is it a collage?". Love the appreciation.
This project is going to take me forever, I hope I don't lose interest. At the moment it probably fits a cot and I want it to fit a King Size Bed. Plus I still haven't finished Monkey and I am at the point of casting off my socks but I have just signed up for a Knit A Long Blanket where we get a new pattern each week and we don't know what it will turn out like in the end. Exciting!?!?
