It's Wednesday so time to reveal what's going on - well, not so much what's going on as what's not going on, as you can see.
Oh, there has been a flurry of activity, but that was yesterday, today there's just a few ink dusters and THs still lying out as evidence. I think I'll have to do something about my timing - maybe deliberately plan to have a project on the go every WOYWW day :) For those not in the know this is the day we report to Julia, Head of Workdesks and link a post showing the state of our work areas - which can be anything from a kitchen table to fully fitted out garden studio ... you'd be surprised! So, if your curious, an essential requirement, pop along to the Stamping Ground and see what's what.
Now, as my desk is sssssoooooo boring today I thought I'd reveal the true extent of my ribbon & trim
First up, the ribbons that are all about a yard long, or thereabouts - I can hang these from home-made cards slotted onto rings. This gorgeousness is usually my first port of call when searching for a ribbon - it's just an arms reach away.
Next, the reel tower - my second port because it sits in a corner of the desk beside the printer and can be seen easily too. Made by the EM, and very useful storage it is. As you can see by the overspill, I think I need to ask if he might make another.
Finally, the two boxes that are stashed away out of sight on a bookcase. Here I keep ribbons that exceed 1 yard in length - too long to hang up - lace, baker's twine, binding and, most precious of all, some crocheted lace made by my late mother. The little bags you can see between the two boxes are filled with snippets. Some I've made into teeny weeny bows but the other pieces are not long enough for that - however, they can still be used as embellishments so don't get thrown away. No ribbon snippet gets thrown away - well hardly any.
Now, having seen all that, can you tell me why I can never find just what I'm looking for???? It's either the wrong shade, width, texture or too short ... sigh!
The EM is painting in the master bedroom today so I suspect it's going to be a interruptus diem, methinks, but I will endeavour to visit as many desks as I can.
Wishing you all a great WOYWW and happy crafting,
