What's on my workdesk today ........

 The only bit of stitch this week is on these postcards I have made from my own photographs of the rusty typewriter in my garden.
 I have finished the watercolour class I have been doing online.
Now I am working on a few orders I've got coming in for end of year presents for favoured teachers.

 I am starting a new online course with contemporary embroiderer Karen Ruane on Monday it will be my fourth one with her.  This one is called SIMPLY STITCH, self explanatory I think.
Expect more sewing pictures next week.

Now its time to have a look at what other people are working on
Have a good week


  1. They all look great. Happy WOYWW xx Jan (68)

  8. Gorgeous photos of you typewriter - I'm still resisting putting mine in the garden, but I don't know how much longer I can hold out! I love the photo of the embroidery bits - hope you have a great course with Karen - I'm looking forward to seeing what you create next.

  9. You sound to be so busy! The old typewriter photos are brilliant - great idea. Do you use the photos just as they are or do you tweak with Photoshop etc? x Jo

    1. I use them just as they are Jo, I don't know how to use photoshop
