What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday

Joining up with Julia over at Stamping Ground for another What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday when people all over the world share what's on their crafty desks this week.

I have finished sorting all (that I've found so far) my floss. It's nicely put away in numbered bags and then drawers. My room is actually looking a lot tidier and I feel good to know that if I want something to stitch I know where to find it!



The compartments on my desk used to be behind me but I put the floss drawers there and the pens and distress ink closer to where I can reach it. Makes more sense and I'm not sure why I didn't do it before!

You've caught me stamping out images this week. I did a few pages of them including the crazy birds you see. I'm off to visit my daughter in Minnesota for a couple of weeks so I want to take them with me. She has plenty of colouring pencils so just the images needed!

I did make a card this week but was in a hurry to post it to my sister that I forgot to take a photo of it! I also finished knitting a scarf this week. It is done in a basketweave pattern. I really like it and am quite pleased with it. I think I've mastered the knitting and purling so now I'm on to some other stitches.


The colour is deep red and black - doesn't seem to show up so well in photo. Would help if there was a little sunshine!

I'm off to visit some desks before son pops in to visit.

  5. Afternoon Sharon. Well done on the sorting - great to have things right where you need them. Lovely fun quirky birds. Enjoy colouring them when visiting your family. Good work on the scarf, too. An all together positive week, with so much completed!
    Take care. God bless.

  7. The scarf looks lovely. Was it complicated or not? Not that I would try to knit one myself, I got in a pickle with tiny bear's garter stitch clothes never mind fancy stitches. Well done you on your achievement.
    I love the crazy birds and made lots of cards for a retreat with them and then did a workshop on them not long afterwards. I haven't done any since!! Now I should work on the crazy dogs which I have.
    Hope the weather warms up for you.
    Hugs & thanks for visiting me

  10. Hi Sharon, Fab scarf. Are you keeping it, or is it a present?

    It's always nice to have a tidy and re=arrange things, as you often think, why didn't I do that before:)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Happy WOYWW

  15. Your scarf looks great! I never would have thought of stamping my own images for colouring in. I don't have any stamps though, so perhaps that is why. Hope you enjoy your colouring in and all of your other crafty exploits!

  17. It's great when you get organised, isn't it. A tremendous sense of satisfaction when things are working properly because they are in the right place! Your scarf is absolutely beautiful - fabulous rich colour and an intriguing stitch too. Thank you for your visit and a nice comment - yes, I managed to do quite a bit last week, considering - and now I'm feeling exhausted and guilty for not doing anything for two or three days running - occupational hazard I suppose, but you'd think I'd be over the silly guilt after 10 years of M.E.!! I am very pleased that I can do art on my iPad and embroidery from the comfort of the recliner when I'm not up to spending time in the studio, and I do enjoy my baking when I have enough energy. I agree - WOYWW is very inspiring and gives us lots of ideas to try things. I hope you do some free embroidery and I'd love to see what you are doing.

    Happy WOYWW,

    Great idea to stamp some images to color while you're away.

  21. Love the scarf - the pattern looks very complicated! I know the feeling when you post something and then you suddenly remember that you forgot to take a photo of it! Oh, well. Your Distress Inks look very well organized and those pen shelves look like something I might need! Thanks for visiting yesterday! Have a good time in Minnesota! zsuzsa #21

  22. Good morning, Sharon! Pretty scarf. In the picture, that black looks purple. hehe Go you on the rearranging and getting your floss in order. I need to bring mine upstairs or I'll never get started on my cross-stitch/ embroidery project. Thanks for reminding me! Creative Blessings! Kelly #42

  26. Your scarf looks very useful in that icy weather (previous post). But it shows as a pretty deep pink and purple :) No black. Have a good week.

  27. Stunning scarf, Sharon, and would love to send you some of our sunshine so you're able to get the true colours in the shot.
    I'm totally impressed you've made it. I learnt to knit when I was eight and my first scarf when nine or maybe started when eight as took me a while to finish it and it was an uneven edge it went in and out a few times 😊.
    All the ones since have been crotcheted as much better at crotchet than knitting.
    Thanks for sharing your inspiration, and for popping over too.
