Well, unusually for me these days, I headed back to my sadly neglected sewing machine last weekend !
I had some practical stitching to do !
So my desk this week has these projects & a few bits & bobs of papercrafting too !
As you may recall, a few weeks ago I lost my tote bag whilst out for a walk - it must have fallen off my husband's disabled buggy & although we retraced our steps someone must have helped themselves to it ! Inside was my Kindle amongst other things - so I had to fork out for a new one.
This is much smaller & touch screen & has a light built in - so rather than buy a "flips open like a book" case like I had before, I decided just to read with it as it is - it is so much lighter I can hold it in one hand & tap with a free finger to "turn" the pages !
So I thought I would just make a little cover to protect it when travelling.
This fancy cats fabric is years old - I was making a quilt with panels & background fabrics and made a huge stack of flying geese blocks & then decided I didn't like it at all !! So it is all still piled in my fabric cupboard years later ! At least this bit has now got a home !
Then Rich had bought a new Sat Nav as our ancient one gave up the ghost !
And seeing my cover, of course he wanted one for the Tom Tom !
So this is nearly finished - just the press studs to stitch on !
I made a start stamping out pictures for the frame project I am slowly working on - just stamped so far - need to get them water-coloured up !
As you can see it has a nature theme !
At the back is a new stamp my friend Lynda got for me with a discount voucher she won by taking part in a challenge on the Crafty Individuals site - it is a lovely lily design - looking forward to using this one !
Lastly here are a few words I am cutting out - they are stamped with one of the Dylusions alphabets - I really like this font ! they will end up in my new art journal once I get them finished !
Well short & sweet this week - hope you all have a great week & looking forward to seeing all your desks ! Ali x
