What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  So I did Alexandra Palace and it was packed but brilliant.  I was tempted to buy so much but I behaved - instead I have a very long Christmas list!

So here is my workdesk - my diddy little sewing machine is out which I adore and I'm using Echo Park - Summertime papers.  After playing I created this layout - another one of the eldest son (youngest son is keeping count and getting bitter!) 


Remember to pop over to Julia's - she's responsible for this craze!  Have a great week and come back soon :-) xx

I see you still have some lovely flowers in your garden to view as you sew and craft. The view is still lovely.

I had a good look at that gorgeous layout. I was impressed by the entire spread, but especially so with the way you strung the fiber between the two hearts. Happy WOYWW. I'm shocked, but #1 this week.

Great layout - Like an idiot, I thought that sewing machine was an electric mixer - must be the angle!! Have a good day.

Is that sewing machine from JML? I've wondered about one as they take up so little space, but am not sure how one would work!

Gorgeous LO! Isn't it funny how they wouldn't cross the street to get involved but the kids like to make sure you keep it all equal! I like the diddy sewing machine, does it zig zag?

Wonderful LO, I like it that yours sons are even competitive over how many LO they each have! Boys, eh!

HA ha - I think siblings learn to count working out what they and their brothers/sisters have in comparison to themselves - no one needs to teach a big family how to do ratio's !!!!
