What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday - WOYWW Week 308

Greetings WOYWW Deskers, Followers and Fellow Bloggers,

I get withdrawal symptoms when I can't make it over to Julia's as happened last week, so just had to join in today.
Quite a tidy desk to show today, although had I taken the photo yesterday it would have been a different story! I've claimed back more than the 12"x12" that had been my working space for the last couple of weeks. It was such a muddle, I had to do something before I ran out of space altogether. So not much to see ... a card almost finished; some gems and enamel dots - just deciding which would be best to add to the card; a snowflake die that should be put away; some paper scraps leftover from making the card; distress inks; adhesive pads. At the back, just off camera, are boxes containing bits and bobs - all essential stash that maybe should be somewhere else, I just can't decide where!

Not much more to say today except I'm up to my eyes in alterations that are keeping me busy with the sewing machine at the moment. Both my niece, Louise, and I have lost weight, she's lost a lot and I've lost a lot less but the result is the same - good news for us but it does mean our clothes don't fit anymore. So far I've taken in the waist on four pairs of jeans with more piled up just waiting to be done!

Feel like revealing your desk to the world, not joined in before but would like to ... then pop over to the Stamping Ground - where you will find a warm welcome, I'm sure - and link a post showing your desk. You'll enjoy the experience :)

Hope you all have a great week ahead.

Happy WOYWW,

Hellooo Elizabeth, yes I have severe withdrawal sypmtoms too, but finding time to get on the pc these days is a problem. See you are still getting ready for Christmas - I gave up and put everything away a few weeks ago as I realised I wasn't going to get anything done just yet - still got quite a few done already though! Hope you are well, Happy WOYWW Cindy #31xx

Hi Elizabeth. Well done you with the weight long as it wasn't just the result of your fairly recent ill health. Taking in trousers is one of my favourite jobs 😀

Hi Elizabeth - yes I have been doing just that too - taking in jeans and even tapering legs of them too as they seem so baggy now I have lost weight. Its nice being a size or two smaller but now I need a whole new wardrobe - well I can wish!! x Jo

Wow, well done on losing so much weight that you have to alter all your clothes!!! I'm on that journey too but it'll take me a long time as I have a lot to lose...but hey, Rome wasn't built in a day :-).
Hope you and the EM are both keeping well!
Hugs, LLJ 19 xxx

Hello Elizabeth. Have you been trying to lose weight - hope it isn't because you have been poorly. I have the same problem with some of my clothes. I've managed to lose nearly two stone in last eighteen months. Slow going now but persevering. Happy WOYWW Anne x #30

I am so impressed by your tidy desk, Elizabeth - I can't see mine for all the STUFF that's piled on top! Many congratulations to you and your neice for losing weight, it is so very hard to do! Altering clothes is a bit of a chore, but the end result means you will both look fabulous! :)

love Mags b x
