What’s on your work desk Wednesday


I’m gathering in more than one way.

Personally I’m gathering my wits, patience, strength and all the other emotions and physical
stuff us humans contend with.  I won’t bore you with it, only to say I have been and am still
in the throws of sorting the move of my lovely 89 and half year old Mum to a really nice
retirement flat and arranging the sale of her house.

This was the outlook from her windows on Monday, isn’t it stunning.
I’m thinking of booking myself in.

On Sunday afternoon I set aside some me time to return to my
craft desk. I was determined not to miss the start of the new prompt
with my No Rules Textile Society.

I’ve stripped the cork display wall of its “UNMAKING” pieces.

and I’m bringing in the colours of Spring for the new prompt

The afternoon was spent happily gathering books, fabrics and

It was nice to spend time fiffing and faffing creating a paper
collage and adding machine stitching.

Here’s how it’s going so far.
Wish us luck for the move on Saturday.
Can’t wait to be sat looking out at those lovely views
with a cup of tea in hand.

Take care

Linking up with


  1. Loving the new art work. Good luck with the move for your mum, I know how it feels. My mum at 94 is still in her own home but not sure for how long. Happy WOYWW with hugs, Angela x9x

  2. Good luck for Saturday. I well remember moving MIL into a small apartment from a three bedroomed house many years ago. It made such a difference to her life not having to care for a huge house and with all the activities there she soon had lots of new friends. I wish the same for your mother. May she be really happy in her new home.
    Love the new art, especially that first piece.
    Hugs, Neet 6 xx

  5. Ooh Lynn I adore your grey and cream wall board and don't know if I could have dismantled it had it been mine - however I am loving the spring colours too - I think I would need several boards!

    Hope you have lovely and not too stressful week,
