WOYWW 306--A Busy Basket

Since the weather has been warmer, I don't always stay in my cozy crafty corner of the house in my leggings and hoodie--I wear t-shirts and embroidered jeans and wander more into the hitherlands...I might sew in the dining room, especially if I'm attempting an actual pattern...I might stitch and art journal on my greenhouse sunporch...or I might hang out in the great room with everybody. I have a busy basket, and it travels around the house.

Tell us your desk story at What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday. Or just visit!
This is from Tuesday morning actually. Semi-clean. So there's the busy basket right now, in the middle of my desk. It's stuffed with my stitching, my junk journal, calendar, and Coach zipper pouch of stuff. (I own vintage Coach that I actually bought myself right after college, back in the eighties and I still love it.)
This week I'm obsessed with my little seedlings, starts and garden plans. I love growing food and flowers. I'm also obsessed with my gardening journal, now that I've found it! I'm definitely going to use it this year--I'll post more about that tomorrow. There's my regular mixed-media art journal opened up to a page I made from the gelli plate and I'm adding some journaling and trying out some stamps on it. That little heart envelope on the stand there is a cute wedding invitation from my niece--I'm trying to be the first person to send back the reply. In the upperleft corner is a bunch of little embroidery hoops I found in my stash which I plan to actually use and make some art with. There's my tube of an amazing lemony hand cream I love and use all the time.

In the meantime, I'm short today, for I'm off to the eye doctor for a dilation/checkup which means I won't be able to get on the computer for hours! But I'll be back.

Happy Wednesday!

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch


  1. Your garden journal is precious! Love the tag shape! I haven't started work in the garden as it has been cold. Just had a Spring clean up done. Hoping in May to start my herbs and veggies! Hope the eye dr went well! Winnie#48

  2. I'm glad you found your garden book! I used to have one myself when we had a garden. I would have been lost without it as I write everything in it.
    Thanks for visiting my page.
    Have a good week,

  3. You have such a lovely desk - always so pretty - I've only ever seen dark green cutting boards over here, I love your pink one with scalloped edges! Thanks so much for your visit earlier, I hope all goes well with your eye check - have a good week,

  5. What a fun desk, makes me want to have a good old nosey! Lemony hand cream sounds gorgeous too! I love gardening too - I've decided to concentrate on herbs this year, because they look pretty and you can eat them too! :o) Annie C #58

  6. Hope the eye exam went well, strange when you have dilation. Interesting to hear about your garden journal - looking forward to seeing it.

  7. I knew you would find the book, they usually turn up when you are not looking for them. Hope the check-up goes okay. Have a great crafty week, Angela x 36 x

  8. I don't have vintage Coach, but I have older Coach. I think Classic Coach is awesome. Cool basket. It's a nice way to be able to craft throughout the house. April #54

    Hope your eyes are back to normal.
    Thanks for stopping by mine x
