Woyww - twister

Hello, I hope it's okay to suddenly join in again when I have been away for soooo long.

Today I am linking with What's on your Workdesk Wednesday in order to show you my new craft. Quilting. This is a new thing for me (dabbled a bit before) but now I am enrolled in a class so I can learn properly.

So, my desk: my sewing machine, the Twister cutter (can't wait to see how this works), Martha Stewart Sewing book to guide me when I get lost, with my glasses on top as I am now struggling to read without them, cutting mat, metre stick, rulers and that fabulous piece of material in the middle is going to be my border. The rest of it you can see here.

It will be interesting to see how this evolves, in the meantime it is making me sew straighter and neater, which can only be a good thing.

Off I pop now to see how many of your desks I can catch up with. I've missed this.

Famfa.....You're back!! Woohoo. Funnily enough, I was wondering the other day how you were getting on. Hope you and the tribe are all ok :-)
I'm showing quilting on my blog too....I got some lovely charm packs with my Christmas money and I'm enjoying doing some quilt as you go projects.

Twister now this sounds interesting, I don't do sewing, never really tried, I know I'm strange. Good for you giving it a go.

Hugs Eliza
