WOYWW #183--Christmas in Stitches

December What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesdays will no doubt show how many of our work tables have turned into Santa's workshops! Oh the joy of seeing beautiful Christmas cards being created, special Christmas crafts to share and always a delightful surprise or two at the limitless imaginations out there! (I also adore super-neat spaces, and super messy spaces!)

Lovely Mrs. Dunnit hosts all the fun right here.

And just a reminder that Mrs. Dunnit posts in real-time in the U.K., so unless the Americans want to stay up all night, you'll be further down the list--so be sure and visit all around the list to have the most fun and travel desks from around the globe!
My sewing machine plopped in the middle of my craft table.

So yes, I am consumed, for a few days, with making these adorable button trees and turning them into Christmas cards. I am in a hurry, because they've got to go in the mail soon! Time is not my friend--but my DMC floss, aida cloth, sewing machine, and Downton Abby episodes are my friends. I'll have these whipped up and ready to go in no time! Stitchy hugs to you from the beautiful springtime-in-December Ozarks!
(can you see me holding up my Tinkerbell coffeemug for a toast?)

Eat, Write, Dream, and Stitch something magical.



  1. You are looking very busy there, Sandy. There are always so many last minute things to do aren't there and we love giving ourselves even more.
    Your trees are absolutely gorgeous. Enjoy your stitching along with Downton Abbey!! No better accompaniment.
    Happy WOYWW
