What's on your desk this week

I'm joining the work desk party late today.

The Linen Garden on Instagram 

There's nothing to see on my desk, but I have got this piece of  floral 
vintage linen and this piece of tweed that I am going to design into 
a skirt and get my ever so clever friend Val to make up for me.

Mandy Pattullo on Instagram 

I am going to have a go at making a fabric or paper book out of 
an old leather wallet like this one I spotted on Instagram or Instagram (California based)

And I love this but will never be able to make it 
as its crotcheted.  I thought the ladies who have
a talent for the craft might like it.

Hope you have a good desk hopping day over at Julia's place
which next week celebrates 400 desk hopping weeks


  1. Hi Lynn. Crafting and creating is the best therapy at difficult times I'm sure. I really love the ideas you have planned. Sending you big hugs,

  3. Fab ideas hun. Hope you have a good week. Sez x #24

  4. There you are Lynn! I was looking for you!!! And, as always, your post does not disappoint...I'm completely inspired (especially that fab wallet upcycle idea) so thanks for joining the party. I haven't been here for a few weeks, but if you visit, you'll see why. Hugs! Sandy Leigh #45

  5. I used to be able to crochet and once did a very complicated mat but I cannot even remember how to join a chain now. Lovely hanging you showed us though. Lots of lovely things and I look forward to seeing the new outfit you are designing.
    Hugs, Neet 2 xx

  12. Your post is so inspirational and your teddy bear pic as well, made me chuckle!Happy WOYWW day for yesterday! Anne #7

  13. Do I take it you don't crochet then? I taught 4 lovely ladies to crochet a couple of years ago. One thought she'd never be able to but ended up producing loads of things, it's not too difficult, here's the blog of what we did together. BJ#27

  14. Love the fabrics and can't wait to see the result. I'm also loving the idea of making a fabric book out of an old leather wallet. xxx

  15. Never say never! Crocheting is very easy, and if you can do other awesome crafty things, you should be able to crochet! Go ahead. . .try it! Thanks for sharing, Lindart #46

  16. Sounds like you are going to be busy, Lynn. Enjoy making the book. Love the crochet hanging - not sure I could make it either...
    Take care. God bless.
