I hope I am doing this correctly...It is Wednesday in Britain but still Tuesday here...don't think I can stay up till midnite:(
Hope it is OK to post now...
My next door neighbour and I get together once a week to make cards or to scrapbook. Lately, we have been making flowers. Sometimes we make sets of 2 or 3 flowers for scrapbooking embellishment clusters. Other nights we make really big blossoms to sew onto hairbands or hairclips. It is very relaxing work and quite addictive. I have to share a secret...my neighbour is much FASTER at this than me...I am such a slowpoke at all crafty things!
The green woven basket contains the fabric circles that I have already handcut. I keep a little wheel of pins in there too as I like to pin each "set" after I singe the edges.
The big clear tote with the green lid contains all my folded up (well, actually, stuffed in) material, fabric scissors, lighter, candle, beads and other embellishments for the flower centers. Everything I need to create flowers is in that bin!
That way, if she hosts the evening, I can just grab my little box and I'm good to go.
Now for the embarassing bits. Yes there are unfinished projects lying out too. I am just lucky that there is a sort of hidden corner to my desk to hide things a wee bit...(who am I kidding, right!!!!!) Look right...waaaay over to the right...You will see a 3 drawer unit full of the bits and bobs needed for my current long term project. I am making a wedding album for a gift. There is also a huge bag of blingy ribbon just behind those drawers and a stack of completed wedding pages behind that. I think I have about 16 pages done and maybe 8 or so more to go. It has been just a fun project and DH would like me to make one for us to keep as well.
Under the wedding pages there are 2 scrapbooks (to be sold on Craigslist) and my January.Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit...yes January...eeeek! The Feb challenge starts Feb 5th so I have to get my butt into gear and scrap my Xmas photos with this kit.
Earlier today Little Miss C and I made these two flowers and sewed them onto "Goodie" brand hairbands. I love this brand as little Miss C has long, very fine hair and they never slide out. They have little ridges that hold tight
She was very proud that she did the "sewing". She almost finished one and then let the needle graze her finger...she didn't cry...just said "OUCH" and then told me I could do all the sewing parts....
Hope you enjoyed my desk and hopefully by next month my January Counterfeit Kit will have been all used up!
