My desk today looks very different from what I normally show. What you are seeing first is the new desk in my study.This has been designed to allow me to have the sewing machine out permanently, instead of, as previously, having to clear the computer keyboard before I could get out the sewing machine. So there is the machine with all the clutter for making bags for Uganda. If you want to know more about it go to Margaret's blog where she explains a bit about the bags.
Making the bags themselves is very simple, it is the straps that I find so tiresome and exhausting. They are a metre and a half long and need machine embroidery all the way along to strengthen them. You can see a couple I have done the embroidery on, but gosh it is wearing stuff! I have promised to make twelve.
Behind the machine you can see my monitors with pictures of frosted foliage. I think frosting on things is so pretty that, when we have frosts I can often be found outside, early morning, in my dressing gown, trying to get the best pics before the sun has melted the icing on the plants and before I freeze to death.
Note to self, must make time to do some cardmaking soon, grandson's birthday in just over a week.
If you are wondering why I am exposing my all, in crafting terms anyway, nip over to the lady Julia, where all will be revealed.
Well I must get back to the machine and get stitching.
Bye for now and Happy WOYWW to you all
