Happy What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday! It's the mid-week desker party, and you can take a peek right here at the Stamping Ground.
While our host makes the most beautiful cards and things - you will find a plethera of crafty delights on the worktables of deskers around the planet.
Now, onto my desk. It's really a vintage leaf table I painted white long ago, and stenciled on some ivy. It is constantly covered with pink cutting mats - the one on the right is magnetic, and it comes in handy with its metal ruler to hold things down sometimes. But right now I've got paper scrap out, my Smash book, and I'm making tags from scraps--part of my Stash Dash 2015 pledge to myself. Also, I've finished my first cross-stitched Russian Doll. She's so cute. I'm trying to decide on whether to use her in a banner or a little art quilt as I start on doll number two.
I've also got a fat cat doll standing there--I was thinking about making more of those. And my hubby gave me a mini Altoids tin, which I will upcycle into something!
In the meantime - attention Downton Abbey lovers...did you love the whole scene with the first time they experienced a radio broadcast at Downton? That was cooool...and I loved how they called it the "wireless." We all forget that nobody really said "radio" in 1924...they thought of it as a wireless telegraph at first. I don't know why I'm so fascinated to see how people might have acted the first time they witness someone using a sewing machine, or a typewriter, and now a radio, but I love it! Robert and Carson think it's all a fad that will go away. Cute.
