What’s on Your Workdesk? Wednesday #230

Well here we are again. If you’re not quite sure where that is, then pop over to Stamping Ground the blog of our lovely WOYWW leader Julia where al will be revealed.

A quick one from me today. Here’s the desk. A different view to usual.


This is what I am doing just now. It is likely going to be seasonal (!), it may be bunting and it may be the November giveaway. I haven’t quite decided yet. I’m summoning up the courage to cut that lovely green cardstock cos I only have just enough for what I have in mind but once I get that far it won’t take long to finish. After hand cutting those letters from templates I can see the advantage of one of those clever electronic cutting machines. I was thinking I would make more than one but frankly, the time that took to do has put me off already.

So that’s all, will be touring very early or very late as I am back working every Wednesday. My choice, but I do like to fish for sympathy.

Would love to hear from you!! Happy WOYWW.

Time to make Christmas cards I think.
You just reminded me about that. ;)

Your desk always has some new project to show us! You work hard at your desk. :D

Have a nice week!

Hi Cindy - I had to hand-cut 2 of all 24 letters (I didn't do Q and X)for the key rings I was making last week - NOT a happy job and I was doing felt which is a bit more forgiving of wonky edges that cardstock. I feel for you, but I think your project will look great. Hope it goes well. MMx #41

Oh I can relate to the cardstock thing lol. Horrible when you only have one sheet and no room for error!
Thanks for sharing. Have a happy Wednesday :)

These new posh machine do sound fab, but cost so much. I have a Ebosser & dies still, which are limited cos of cost so think it'll be hand cut from me too!! Take care Zo xx 81

Happy WOYWW Cindy! Don't talk to me about cutting machines, sore point right now!
I love the green, I am like that when I get to the end of some favourite card stock and the pick and mix card merchants are conspicious in their absence from exhibitions for the last few years, and even the stands in shops are practically empty - what is going on?

Hi there! Well, I suppose if you're making triangular bunting from the green card, you'd get a lot of tessellated shapes! I've seen various Christmas banners..they always seem to go well....give it a go.....ah go on, go on, go on, go on....oh I apologise. I seem to have had an attack of the Mrs Doyles!!
And I'll give you sympathy for working on Wednesdays - it should be against the law ;-)
Hugs, LLJ 35 xx

Gosh, you're brave! I wouldn't even attempt to hand cut all those letters!! You've done a great job. Hugs. Pam#39

Monique said...

That looks promising. I know the feeling of gathering courage for something like this... I tend to start procrastinating a lot... and measuring not twice but at least 4 times and things like that. But it'll be worth it, it's a gorgeous color =)
Happy late WOYWW
xx Monique

I understand the dilemma when you have to cut the one piece of paper and you don't have room for a mistake. Now I can see why people would want the computer letter cutters the manual cutting I did for the advent calendar has put me off any other number projects!

Those letters are handcut? Girl, you got some steady hands! And good cutting abilities. I hate the pressure of only one sheet of paper left for the project. I'm sure you'll do fine though.
