Meanwhile back at the desk.......

 Happy flipping new year.  I thought I would never get here.
I can just see what they will put on my headstone
"She was nothing, if not persistent"

You won't believe the problems I'm having trying to get 
my pictures to upload onto blogger.
So after many hours of navel gazing I've found a long 
winded way around it.  Don't ask !

The opposite view to this is me sat at my desk leaning on 
my elbows tapping my fingers thinking about what I can 
offer as a show and tell today.

Well I have started stitching another winter scarf 
using patchwork tweeds.
Do you remember the one I made before Christmas 
for a friend's birthday. She loved it by the way.

More pics of it here WINTER TWEED SCARF

Need to catch up on the desk hopping so 
I'll hand you over to the lovely Julia over at WOYWW HQ 
for you to be inspired by some very talented people.


  1. sorry you've been having trouble with your photos - but happy new year!! Helen 2

  2. Nice to see you here Lynn. Love that photograph (sorry you have been having trouble and now have a long winded way to show us pictures) of your window, or should I say wall with a view. I can just picture myself sat somewhere like that. Now how can I get some bricks out and glass in to a wall in my house?
    Gorgeous scarf, no wonder the friend liked the one you gave her.
    Take care, Hugs, Neet 4 xx

  3. Honestly, the whole business of doing a blog post seems to take an eternity sometimes. Quite a commitment it can be. But look at you, Miss Determined! Where there's a will there's a way I always say. Your studio is such a lovely space, I think I'd spend hours just pottering, but you always manage to create something beautiful. Glad your friend loved her scarf. Xxx

  4. Lynn, that view in your pleasant room is one I'd love to be gazing at often!I have run out of energy to blog this week.Feel flat and uninspired. At least you're a stayer and got your photos up there!Love the scarf by the way!

  5. Hi Lynn.. sorry blogger isn't playing nicely with you.. boo! I have been trying out the blogger app for my mobile as I like to type when I am on the train and it adds photos ok... but never finds the ones I watermark.. so I need a way around that.

    Loving the look of those scarves.. so pretty!

    Have a great week

  6. Hi Lynn. How ever do you do any work in that gorgeous room with that view. I can only imagine what it looks like when the clouds lift... I'd spend all my time simply gazing! The scarf was lovely - well done. And now you are heading into another one. Enjoy!!
    Take care. God bless.

  7. My jaw actually dropped when I saw your view Lynn. How wonderful it must be to being able to look at this day in day out. xxx

  8. Great looking pix shared today, sorry to read you are having problems uploading photos but glad to hear you've found a way round it, blogger CAN be such a pain but what WOULD we do without it?

    Happy WOYWW


  9. Mm, am sorry, Lynn, blogger doesn't aiways play nice, hope it's fixed whatever was the issue, I love the tweed scarf, it's gorgeous, it would be sooooo warm!!!

  10. Really sorry to hear you're having problems Lynn. Hope you get it sorted soon. Think blogger likes to play games with us at times! Live the tweeds you're working with today.
    Hope you have a great week.

  11. Hi Lynne, Blogger can be really annoying at times, cant' it? The scarf sounds like it will be incredibly warm. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #7 xxx

  12. Lovely view of and from your room! Feels very calm and atmospheric. Loving your fabric projects and stitching! Happy belated new year! zsuzsa #20

  13. I love the view you have looking across your room. I'd probably just sit there and stare for a while lol. Your scarf looks interesting. Definitely something usable at this time of year. Happy New Year!

  15. I love your view! And your scarves look awesome - great idea! Thanks for sharing, Lindart #39

  16. Beautiful view and stunning scarves. I agree, Blogger can be sooo frustrating some days.

  17. That little tweed scarf looks sooo cosy! x Jo

  18. just keep repeating "technology is my friend" until you believe. Very pretty blue floral fabric. ... Mary-Lou #32

  19. I did a dance seeing your lovely little clanger ( making sooup dragon noises as I type) really cant focus on the desk, I just keep going back to the darling clanger...Donna #45

  20. What a lovely art space you have Lynn! Nice to meet you. Sez x #51

  21. What a room! I'm terribly jealous, even though it is overcast.

    The start of that scarf looks amazing and your little piglet in the corner put a smile on my face. What a great creative space.


  22. Gorgeous room with a gorgeous view, Lynn! Love your sewing too. Thank you for such a nice comment - and I'm glad you like my efforts! As for my wretched wisdom tooth, I'm still hoping it will settle down without intervention as I'm terrified of having stuff done at the dentist at the best of times, and this would be pretty horrendous, I think.

    Happy WOYWW,

  23. Blogger can be very single minded at times. Lovely to see you are making another scarf. Hopefully for you to keep this time.

  24. that's a pretty nice view, probably even better if the mist clears way, Happy WOYWW Vicky #12

  25. Happy Belated WOYWW. It is wonderful to see the view that you have. My craft room overlooks our farmyard - and it is often busy at the moment with machinery/animals. Ali x #29
