WOYWW 198 – not a lot


cleandeskI have not been able to spend time at my desk getting scrappy, sticky or inky.  So there is nothing to show.  But on my DESKTOP I have this video.  I am so in love with her process!  I have her book and find it hugely inspiring – the link is to the DVD preview but the download in under £8 so I’ll be watching that later.  I wish I had her fabric stash but my life is too full of paper to be able to afford to let my current (and surely temporary) fascination with fabric get the better of me!  I am intrigued by her other book on fabric printing, and considering an exploration of the Gelli plate use for that.

Happy WOYWW! Can’t believe how close week 200 is!!

  1. Hi MA your desk looks a bit lonely, I’m sure you will get back to it soon. I had a look back at the folde edge too… it is amazing, so much work, you seem to be enjoying the process. If you want a simple bag pattern, just make a rectangle tote bag. Flatten out the bottom and sew across the front and back so makeing a gusset I can send you a diagram via e mail if you would like… it is very simple but it works. Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt
    have a good week

  20. Fab to see your desk anyway, so neat and tidy and everything to hand! Enjoy desk hopping. Take care Zo xx 87

  21. Your desk is lovely and tidy!

  22. It will only be temporary if it stops fascinating you….and I could have picked that book for you – I want structure, easy stuff, geometry and you go for experimental and freeform…viva la difference!
    Your desk looks utterly fantastic and a bit scarey. My desk doesn’t get tidied just because I’m going to neglect it!

  23. Wow that is a neat and tidy desk lol! Sorry to hear that you haven’t had much of a chance to play this week. But I bet you have been thinking about what you are going to do when you can :-). Happy WOYWW.
