What's on my workdesk

 
 This was the desk on Sunday when it was snowing and we couldn't get out. During that time I created these
A card, a bookmark and a wallet.  They are made with photographs of my textile pieces.  I've machine stitched them.
Since then, amongst other things, I dug out these 
watercolour paintings that I've had for years.

I bought them at a local art exhibition but never 
got around to putting them in frames.
So as I am machine stitching everything in sight at 
the minute I thought I would do it to these.
Don't stand still in our house for to long or 
you could end up with a needle in you.

Time to pop over to see the rest of Julia's gang and 
what they've been upto this week.

IF YOU ARE LATE READING THIS, WELL LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT LOVELY WATERCOLOUR NEXT

  3. Love your card bookmark and wallet - not sure - are they fabric?
    As for the watercolour cards, I loved them as they were but then you stitched on them and gave them a new life - fabulous and what a great idea.
