Morning lovely WOYWW friends. Here we are at Wednesday again, where do the weeks go? It's a bit of a damp one here in Yorkshire this morning but after the gorgeous weekend, I'm not complaining. I hope any WOYWWer's who are in Queensland have come through that awful storm safe and sound.

Here's my desk this morning.

 A bit of a mess after a crafting session yesterday. I just finished and walked away, which is unusual for me as I like to tidy up between projects. I guess that'll be the first job today. I was asked to make a leaving card for a lady at work and was just finishing it off with some ink and gilding wax last night, listening to some music. I escape for an hour every evening while my other half has his daily dose of Star Trek after tea!!

This is the finished card

I found so many half done things during my recent craft room spring clean and am determined to finish some of them now I have a bit more time. This was the first one that finally got completed last weekend. A little felt cushion I did as a Craft Club project last year. It now sits on our bed, a much better place than in bits in a drawer. One down, many more to go!!

 Well, that's me this week. If you want to share your desk with us, then pop over to see Julia at WOYWW Headquarters, HERE.

Enjoy your Wedensday and Happy Crafting!

That's a lovely card, such a pretty background, and I especially like the quote and the attractive text it's in.
Hope you have a great week and thanks so much for visiting my desk,

Oh that is a sweet cushion Lisa - made sweeter because its a finished WIP, very impressive! Now the evenings are lighter, I hope too to have extra desk time after tea - it's not Star Trek here, but something in the fantasy genre that I don't really need to see!

Oh, you have some fresh and lovely things on your desk this week! I love the card and sentiment, perfect for someone who is leaving - it's that mix of relief and dread when you move on from a place that is familiar. The little cushion is gorgeous and you're right, much better out on display than shoved in a drawer!!!
Hugs, LLJ 8 xxxx

Lovely card, I'm sure your co-worker will treasure it! That little pillow is too cute for words! Thanks for sharing, Lindart #35

Great card and cushion. I feel the same way. When I cleaned my room there were so many unfinished projects. I made a promise to myself to get through them. I've completed a few mini albums, but there are so many more....Dorlene #33

Lovely card Lisa. You must be so pleased with the cushion it has turned out a treat. Hope all well with you. We have had rain, rain and more rain.... quite miserable. Thank goodness for the escape of craft.

What pretty pieces you have made. Let's hope the weather starts to improve soon. It's been so wet, not good for the hairdo haha

Marit said...

The card is really nice but it would be a hard choice for me between going into the studio or watch Star Trek (I just LOVE that series!) Good for you that you finished some old projects... I know how it is, having 'unfinished projects' laying around ;) And yes, keep the Ice Saints as a reference for gardning, it's fun to imagine three saints saying you can 'go ahead now'... ha! Have a great weekend, love from Holland! Marit #23

Hi Lisa,
What a pretty card! And I like how you have done the background. The cushion is gorgeous too!
I'm in the same city as Sandra (above) and yes, it's all been rain, rain and more rain here :(
