I can't show you my very untidy desk today as it's really so bad I will have to have a tidy up before it's useable! - I had a couple of cards to make at short notice and needed to pull out lots of stash. Instead I have a picture of the cross stitch I finished off to give to my niece on the birth of my first great nephew. I was a cross stitch design from LOTV and had had a pink version also stitched so I had just to add the name etc this week. Weighing in at 10lb 1oz he certainly is a 'great' nephew! Back to more craft fair items for the rest of the week as I am taking a table at another one on Saturday morning. Visit the other desks this week HERE.
I can't see my work desk at the moment as it's buried under a mountain of all sorts!! - I am taking a table at a craft fair this Saturday so have to get some things ready for sale very quickly as I am off to the NEC on Friday (involves a 1.5 hour drive to Belfast, an overnight stay there, flights of just over an hour to Birmingham and back after 9 on Friday night - so probably not get home again until midnight at least!!) But I always enjoy the trip - my twice yearly treat!! Anyhow I have made some chicken sewing caddy/pincushion (pattern from www.artfabricstudio.com - with a few modifications), cards and gift tags, covered notebooks, mini tins of shortbread and I took up LLJ's advice and made some covers for packs of pocket tissues - mind you, I should have consulted her page before I had the first half dozen made - I just used one thickness of fabric with some cute lacy edged bias binding I found in my stash, when I should have used a double layer of fabric - oh well, you learn as you go and they look OK!
