Hello again everybody! Here we are again for another round of WOYWW. Courtesy of the fabulous Miss Dunnit of course!

I present to you today my workspace. As usual. Tidy, but not tidy. What you see here, is the result of tidying up after a craftermath.

I had a sudden blitz, after making this card for my new nephew. It's taken me a while to get around to it, but I finally settled on a design I liked and made it. Of course, I didn't actually have the dies in my collection, so I had to go out and buy them. For "go out and buy", read "visit eBay". LOL. Mind you, I did actually surf the web looking for local stores that might have stocked them, as it's always better to buy local, but unluckily nobody had them.

In the spirit of Julia's desk this week, I thought I'd swing round to slightly and show you what's behind me (no it's not panto season again). As you can see it's a serried rank of drawers which contain all my rubber stamps, ribbons, card, background paper, and assorted other craft items. Plus on the shelves there is my big shot, and a myriad of other things to Numerous to mention - buttons , inks, you name it. Too much stuff to use in my lifetime, but I have reached the point these days where if Lil Miss B comes up to me and says "Mum, have you got…", I can usually provide!

The other work that is being done this week is to finish off the knitting that I have been doing. It seems to have taken for ever to finish this baby cardigan but I will share with you the picture once its done. I am now at the stage of sewing the sleeves in, and then I have to pick up the stitches to knit the band at the front and around the neck.

So that's it for this week - hopefully I'll have time to join you on the hop today.

Bright blessings!

Oh, I love knitting but hate sewing together and picking up the edges for borders...sigh. It's like quilting after the patchwork bit has been finished, sooooooo tedious :-)
Great card btw, it looks very complicated to make!

Ohmy... that card is fabulous!!! I love the witch-hat in the back of your desk-photo too! And as long as you can find the material/stuff that you are looking for in your studio, you don't have too much (at least that is what I tell myself, ha!) Happy woyww and a hug from Holland, Marit #34

Hi Morti, lol, I think we all have more stuff than we could use in a dozen lifetimes! My DIL is extremely worried about being left craft room contents in wills- as she will not only have mine to contend with, but her mothers( Silvercrafter) as well. Poor dear. Love the card by the way, and isn't E-bay wonderful for coming to the rescue.Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #5 xxx

Great cubbies to organize your stuff. I'd love to come shopping at your craft place.

Sharon said...

Wow that is a lot of drawers!

Beautiful card. Isn't that always happens when you have an idea? You never have the stash you need to make it lol.

I hate the pick up for borders!!
Lewis came over for Mother's Day....Mum, have you got any red and grey fabrics....... silly question really. It's nice having kids that share your crafting interests though...
