Good Morning Fellow Bloggers,
It's Wednesday, so time to join all WOYWWers around the world and show what's on our desks today. Simply click the logo on the sidebar to be transported to Julia's blog, the Stamping Ground, and you will be transported to the place where it is all happening :)
And on mine today is a project that should have been completed before Christmas. It's a Christmas patchwork wall-hanging, the brainchild of BJ on the UKPC Yahoo Group. Each member of the group created a patch based on measurements that would make an 8" square when pieced together. Unfortunately, for me, the piecing together got pushed to the side before Christmas - other more pressing matters - and then I got poorly after New Year so not a lot got done at all. So what you can see is the patches pieced together on a backing of black card that is edged with my version of 'frantage'. Next to it is a piece of cardboard painted black - the pot of paint is just behind - another backing to give the piece stability. The red mirri die-cut edging is to trim the bottom and the corners are for the top.
Behind all that you can see that things are looking a bit more coordinated and swish because of the lovely new plaid desk tidy and baby-wipe cover - the work of those crafty sisters, Annie and Jo. All part of my ongoing, and never-ending, attempt to do the impossible - keep my desk tidy :)
Since I started to write up this post, the glue gel has dried and the wall-hanging is completed.
Too sad that it has to be carefully wrapped up and put away until December! Thanks to all the girls - your names are recorded on the back - who contributed a patch. Each one shows a wealth of techniques and expertise. The finished piece is lovely and will be hung in a prominent place each Christmas for years to come.
It's the wee small hours of the morning and, as it is getting distinctly chilly, I'm off to bed. I look forward to popping in to see as many of you as I can over the next few days.
In the meantime, have a happy WOYWW and a great week,
