Wednesday Again - What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday June 22nd

 It's Wednesday and it time for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. We're still joining with Jan while Julia is recovering. It's great to see her posting again!

Another week has rolled around. Time is just flying by - we leave on our holiday Saturday morning so I won't be around next Wednesday. We are taking a trip up north first to Traverse City and then up further to Munising in the Upper Peninsula and then back down to St. Ignace. We are doing three nights camping in a tent and two nights in a hotel. The hotel stay is in the middle of the camping. We shall see how it goes! LisaDV I think I will be travelling through your small town (no time to stop though) as we are going to stop at a couple of lighthouses on our way up to Traverse City.

Anyway, on to my desk. There really isn't a lot of change.


A work-in-progress mini-album is on there but not much otherwise. We were quite busy over the weekend and the weather was gorgeous so we spent quite a bit of time outside.


I spent some of my birthday GC that my friend got me and bought this Dylusions stamp/stencil set from Michael's. I used a 50% coupon with it too.

I have been working on my stitching. Not as much as I wanted to, but I am getting it done. I won't be taking it with me. Knowing me I would get something on it or ruin it. I probably wouldn't work on it anyway so no point carrying it along with me.  I am on the countdown - I will only have three weeks to get it done when I get back. It will be crunch time. I need to have all gifts done by the time I leave for England on July 22nd.


It's quite difficult to see from the picture but I have stitched a whole chunk of white. It goes right from the brown stitching on the left (taller than the top row) and right along to the brown just above the girl's head. I'm hoping to have most of the stitching on the right hand side done before we leave on Saturday.

I'm off to hop around the other blogs and see what people are up to!

  1. Yes, I can see where you have done the white stitching. You've done quite a lot. I think it is quite sensible not to bring it on a camping holiday. I wouldn't either.
    It is a good idea to have a hotel stay in the middle. By which time you will want a decent shower and a decent bed and a bit of civilisation lol. (Yes, been there done it etc)
    Have a great time,
    Happy WOYWW,
    Greetings from sunny Spain,

  8. You have some fun images on the stamp set - new stash is always a joy isn't it! I don't blame you not taking your embroidery camping, it's just not worth the risk - camping can be grubby!! Hope you have a good trip next week,

  9. Lot of work in that cross stitch, good luck with getting to the point you want by weekend.
    The holiday sounds interesting although I have no idea about the places, nothing to stop me looking on Google though!
    Love those toadstools and birds of Dyans.
    Hugs, Neet 5 xx

  16. I had to smile when you were saying that you might get something on the stitch work if you take it with you. Years ago I was working on some embroidery and I carried it around with me everywhere but wouldn't let anyone near it, sure they thought I was mad Lol! Another late visit for me as we've been to the Lincolnshire agricultural show today. Thanks for the visit to mine and happy woyww, Angela x 21

  17. You're going to be doing a lot of travelling over the next couple of months! Hopefully you'll get to see loads of lighthouses too :-). The stitching is coming on really well, you must be spending every spare minute doing it.

  18. Such lovely cross-stitching. Your camping/not all camping trip sounds really nice. It's been 100+ here for days so hard to think of people spending time outdoors! Have a fun time and catch a cool breeze for me! Thanks for the visit earlier. PJ #49

  19. How do you go camping and stay in ahotel at the same time? We have too much stuff for camping to be able to store anywhere in a hotel, or do you do glamping that is all supplied? Have a nice time anyway

  20. Wow, you are busy! I'm so jealous that you're going to the UP and even more jealous that you're going to England! I hope you take lots of pictures and share them with us. Thanks for visiting me.

  27. Yes, your cross stitch is looking good! Like you, I would think about taking it (and probably would) but then wouldn't touch it :)
    Have a good trip!

  28. Thanks for stopping by this week, and taking the time to drag your way to the end of the post! Heheheheh..... Nice to see another Cross-stitcher on the block as it were. So you're back in the UK on the 22nd July? How long for, and are you going to try and hook up with any WOYWWers while you're here? Some of us like to try and do that with our international buds, as opportunities are few and far between...

    1. Your post was great. Loved the cathedral pictures. I am going to be back. I leave here on the 22nd. I am staying until Sept 9th. My Mum turns 80 on September 4th so will be spending her birthday with her. I come over every year. I'd get too homesick without it!
