What's on my workdesk

Last Thursday I trundled off with my bag of stuff to our
monthly craft group meeting.

One member, Sheila, had agreed to show us all how to 
make these Christmas cards and another more complicated version.
I don't do complicated so stuck to this one.

I am still on with my knitting. The top one is another triangle shawl
and the bottom one is the back of  the garter stitch waistcoat I'm working on.

Apart from ramming all these crotchet flowers into this kilner jar
there is nothing else to see on my desk. No I haven't made them
before you ask haha.

So I will bid you all a creative and happy week
in Julia Workdesk land


  1. Love the cards you made. They look tricky enough to me. Pretty little crochet flowers that's something I could make.
    Have a great week.

    Ps Milly had a few night in the kennels while we were away visiting Jan....she gets really spoiled there and comes home shattered lol

  2. Love the Christmas cards and I envy your crochet flowers. I have tried and tried but can't master crochet. It's like double dutch to me, lol.
    Have a good week

  3. I like the Christmas cards you made. They seem ideal for using up paper scraps. Happy WOYWW Sarah #29

  4. That bag you're carrying looks like it's escaped from my Wall of Misery!
    Fab snippet of your outfit and the jar of woolly flowers is really cheery and spring-like. xxx

  5. I love the bag you're carrying to your crafty session! Knitting seems to be coming along. I've been doing some more lately - venturing out beyond knit and purl lol

    Happy WOYWW

  7. Nothing wrong with simple, your christmas trees, whilst slightly early, are lovely, glad you are forging onwards and upwards with the waistcoat, Dx #32

  8. A fantastic idea for a Christmas card! I've just started getting interested in stitching cards with 3D bits hanging off. I might have a go at doing a paper tree. Thank you for sharing and have a great week - EmbroidRage #5 x

  12. Love the patchwork dress and the boots - I do envy you your style, it's fantastic... Those cards are lovely, I made something similar with the Y6's in school, effective, aren't they?
