It's the middle of the week again - wow the weeks are flying by! - so it's time for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday with Julia over at Stamping Ground. I missed last week as nothing had changed on my desk. It's still messy and I think my mojo is lost in the mess. The photo below only shows a portion of the desk (the tidiest bit).
You can see a couple of backgrounds I've been doing. I've been working on photo pages and waiting for a sunny day to take decent photos of those. I've been knitting - a couple of hats (seen on Friday post) and now working on some wrist warmer thingys. I am so pleased with how the knitting is coming along. I've also been working on one of the cross stitch pieces I've had kitted up. I'm finding it a little difficult as I don't particularly like stitching it. I think it probably shows in the stitching though I am determined to finish!
I'm off to have lunch with a friend, phone my Mum and will be hopping around desks in between. Happy mid-week everyone! Hope you have more sunshine than us - weekend nice, now rain and tomorrow (!!) snow!
I wouldn't worry, if you're not feeling something, then it's probably best left to one side for a couple of days. Hope the sun comes out for those photos soon.ReplyDelete
Hi Sharon, I agree with sarah, if you're not feeling the love with it, best to put it aside. I find that sometimes with cards- one reason I went off taking commissions. Some were fine, but some people were so specific with what they wanted, it didn't give me any enjoyment making them. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #6 XxXReplyDelete
Love your tidy bit! Joking apart those backgrounds look tempting so I am sure your mojo will return to do something with them before too long.ReplyDelete
Hugs, Neet 2 xx
Fab desk (and loving the pic of Shasta in your sidebar too). Hope you had a lovely lunchReplyDelete
It sounds like you are busy with lots of lovely things so I wouldn't worry too much about your mojo, it'll come back when you are ready to create something else.ReplyDelete
Hope you had a lovely lunch.

Sometimes it's good to put things to one side and have a break - you'll come back refreshed and full of ideas. Glad the knitting is going well, I've had to put my knitting and crochet on hold until I get my carpel tunnel sorted in my wrist - as soon as I found it difficult to knit I really wanted to!!ReplyDelete
Have a great week,
Hi Sharon, Your desk looks ready for the next round of inspiration.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
What a great busy desk. If you don't enjoy stitching don't do it or swap a knitted item with a stitchy friends skillReplyDelete
sometimes mess can create mojo! hand in there!ReplyDelete
You'll be glad you persevered when the cross stitch is finished, admirable tenacity missus! I really like the backgrounds...have you started them knowing what they're going to be for, or are you doing that arty flying by the seat of your pants thing?!!ReplyDelete
It's hard when your mojo decides not to show up. Know that we all go through this. Keep working on whatever you find interesting. I find that cleaning, clearing, and destashing helps me but you must find what works for you. Glad you joined in today. Hope to see photos of the knitting and stitching.ReplyDelete
My mojo has gone on vacation many times and it gets worse as I get older... but it usually comes back after a visit to Pinterest or some of my favorite blogs. Sounds like you have some other projects going that keep you crafting. Thanks for the visit and I hope your week goes great!ReplyDelete

Nice creatively busy desk! Looking forward to seeing what you do with your backgrounds! I'm sure you will find your mojo in there somewhere! Thanks for sharing, Lindart #38ReplyDelete
It does seem to come round to Wednesday quickly these days. Your desk looks busy and by the sound of it you've been too. Thanks for the visit to mine and happy woyww, Angela x24xReplyDelete
Your desk looks great - busy and full of lovely supplies. My mojo disappeared for a while too. I'm sure ours will come back. Thanks for visiting me and all of your support.ReplyDelete
Hope you had a lovely day yesterday and that you didn't get wet. Hope too that it doesn't snow on you today. I will not tell you what the weather is like here, you wouldn't want to know!ReplyDelete
Pretty backgrounds, love the colours. Thanks for the visit yesterday BJ#9ReplyDelete
Love your desk! I don´t particularly like very tidy desks...hihi....so nice to see when there is thinking going on. I could not think at a tidy desk ;-). Hope your weather is as good as in Holland, we have sunshine at the moment, dut still cold. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, I was very sad visiting the shops, they both are closing in a month time....due to having no one to follow-up and losing clients to on-line shops....greetings! FranciscaReplyDelete
I don't think I would do crafts that I did not enjoy. so, I hope you finish the stitching soon. :) the backgrounds on your desk look like fun too! thanks for the earlier visit ~Stacy #39ReplyDelete
We've had wall-to-wall sunshine here, Sharon, for the past couple of days, though still very chilly in the morning. More to come this weekend. Sounds like you're working on lots of projects at the same time! Thanks for visiting earlier! Enjoy the rest of your week! zsuzsa #22ReplyDelete
Sounds like you have a few projects on the go. which reminded me that I started knitting and forgot all about it. Don't worry about a messy desk ... obviously a very creative mind.ReplyDelete

Oh, I really do understand...don't know where my mojo has gone either! I'm just doing a bit of knitting and crocheting too, at least it's productive 😃ReplyDelete
Hugs, LLJ 10 xx
I missed the whole month! Your desk looks loved. Thanks for stopping by my blog and wishing me happy blog anniversary. :) #42ReplyDelete
Great peek at one of the tidiest spots!ReplyDelete
Love the playfulness you have on your desk. Have fun! Creative Blessings! Kelly #44ReplyDelete
I hope your MOjo came back and that you had nice weather last weekend (in the Netherlands the weekend brung 'summer' days, yay! However, today-Monday, is grey and chilly again.) Thanks for visiting my desk last week (yep, I'm late with visiting back) Love from Holland, Marit #13ReplyDelete
I always say that a tidy desk is a boring desk... though sometimes that's just because I'm so jealous of these tidy-desk organised people lolReplyDelete
