What’s on Your Workdesk

Hello desk hoppers thanks for popping by.

While we had all the snow I’ve been busy stitching.
The tree is going to the Whitworth Gallery in Manchester.
It’s going to be part of a massive collection of stitched trees for a project by Textile Artist 

Hope that’s the end of the snow for this year.
Right off desk hopping over at Julia’s place.


  1. Happy WOYWW. I love trees - and I love textile art - so that project sounds perfect to me! We are actually getting a few flakes of snow in this morning's rain. Ali x #12

  2. Hi Ali
    Sounds like you are having a rough time of it at the moment. Be sure to take good care of yourself and I hope you can find distraction in your crafting

  8. Wow, I love the first picture so much, what a great combo of textures, colours and stitching. The tree is fab too, how wonderful that it'll be part of that exhibition! And I think you'd better brace yourself as there's more snow forecast for the weekend I believe.....

  11. What a neat tree! You make the most interesting things Lynn. I'm hoping our snow is finished too, but the forecast says otherwise. :-(

  12. We had quite a bit of snow yesterday too. But I've seen it snow in April here in Chicago. Your tree and heart look great. Have a good week!

  19. Even in the cold you dress like a babe, love that shot. It seems to be coming back here this weekend, I hope not, but.....I’ve enjoyed.yed the snow days rather too much!! How fab to be a part of the exhibition, and what a fab subject, gosh won’t it look amazing!

  20. Your stitched art is gorgeous, how exciting that it's forming part of an exhibition.
    I'm hoping the weather people have got it wrong for the weekend, no more snow! xxx

  21. I love the stitching in that first photo. For years now I have been planning (in my head) a quilt that has unique stitching and that includes old photos of family members. I wish that I had you here for a day to pick your creative brain
    Then maybe I could have the push I need to get it started.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  22. Some wonderful stitchery going there! P.S. Love the green boots!

  23. I used to love snow and bundling up but anymore I think I need a place in the sun! Love that tree! There is a textile show in OKC next month I am planning on going to where they are displaying quilts from all over! Have a great weekend...Vickie #34
