What's On Your Workbench, Wednesday

Hi there and good morning ... it's actually Thursday here but I figure it's Wednesday somewhere in the world so I'm posting anyway. So if you'd like to join in and share your space with others visit Julia's desk here to find out all about it.    I got back from visiting with our kids late yesterday and quickly took the pic as my desk is reasonably 'clear' - meaning space to work but it really highlights the little piles of bits I have collected 'for use soon'  :-)  Jacalyn and I had a lovely time, very busy making bits for the nursery - made sheer curtains, four fitted sheets and two sides to a quilt which I've bought home to finish - can you tell we went material shopping, just so happened that Lincraft were having a half price fabric sale, lucky us.  We also made invites for the baby shower - went round to friend Vikki's craft room on Saturday arvo and put these together - too cute and very pink so fingers crossed the ultrascan is correct!!   and great to catch up with my stamping buddy too.  I'm finding here this morning too that 720kms makes a lot of difference to the weather...bit fresh here today 7C overnight and a good breeze keeping the chill factor around so I'm make in a tracksuit and slippers. go a check out a few other folks desks and do hope you're all happy and crafting at your place, cheers
PS  I must add -  there's been a few comments regarding the weather in UK being rather hot....I chuckle because 30C isn't so bad - here our summer temps are usually in high 30's's the humidity that kills one here

  7. What great cards. Lovely neat desk - lots of room to do great exciting things. Yes, even here in North Wales by the coast, it is VERY hot this morning - and very humid - that's what gets to you more than the temperature.
    Enjoy all the rest of the sewing.
    Have a great week.

  9. Hi Robyn,

    Lovely to share comments and I must say I've been having a little smile at our fading friends in the UK heat wave of 30C. I must say I get pretty tired of the heat when it's over 35C for ages and doesn't go down at night below 23C give or take.

    Enjoyed your desk, especially the photos on the paper hutch, and noticed the nice brass stencil. Cards are very cute.

    Thanks for dropping by Wildcards for smile or two.

  10. We Brits do get very excited at these temperatures- you have to remember that we get excited when we get into double figures! lol.Love the baby cards, they are so pretty.Love all the stash at the back of the desk too. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #70 xx

  11. Robyn, sorry I'm a bit late but I love the baby cards, so simple. I think I might be borrowing the idea and tweaking it to fit what I want if that is OK?
