What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday - WOYWW Week 354

Afternoon Deskers and All,

This is going to be a super quick WOYWW post today - Julia will be pleased, I'm sure! - because I'm off to visit my sister, Margaret, in her new home. She has been living in a home for disabled people since last year but she was moved on Monday into a brand spanking new bungalow which has been adapted to her needs ... she has MS and is in a wheelchair ... and I can't wait to see it. Anyway, you came to see what's on my desk so here it is.
It makes a change for there to be anything on my desk lately while I've not been feeling up to it. But, I have given myself a stern talking to ... not that I always listen to myself ... but this time it worked and has spurred me into some action. I've pulled out some photographs and papers to make a couple of layouts with ... it's a start. Top right of the photo you can see a piece of crazy quilting I was working on until my fingers got too painful to continue. It's going to be a needlecase when done. Oh, and that is sunlight you can spot too. We've been having the most wonderful spring weather these last few days - fairly lifts the spirits :)

So that's what's on my desk today. I'll be back later, when I get home from Margaret's, to take a look at what's on yours.

In the meantime, Happy Crafting,


  1. That's wonderful news about your sister Elizabeth. I hope she will be very happy in her new home. Enjoy your visit.

  6. Trust you are enjoying the visit to your sister. How wonderful for her - a bungalow adapted to her specific needs. I have to say that our council have been really good in helping us get our bungalow to suit John's needs. They are great.

    Take care. God bless.

  13. Great news about your sister, I hope she'll be very happy in her new home. Sometimes the smallest start spurs us on, hope your layouts kick start your creativity again! helen #1

  14. The weather is great, huh, definitely a help! I'm glad that you said it was for a needle case, I was going to point out the folly of such tiny pieces! it looks grand though, it would make a fab (if labour intensive) bed cover! Good that you have made a start, but hey, be kind to yourself, as people keep telling me, if you don't feel like it, don't!

  15. Good news re your sister, the spring weather and being able to do some crafting. Hope you had a lovely time with your sister. Anne x #50

  17. Well, that's just great news about your sister..I hope she's really happy in her new place! And it's lovely Spring weather for her to move in too :-) It has been beautiful here in Wiltshire too, blue skies and sunshine...hooray!
    I like the look of that crazy quilting, what a fab way to use up your scraps. I must have a go soon when I get my sewing mojo back!
    Hugs, LLJ 11 xx
