Before and after - WOYWW

First pic - my desk with work in progress.
On the left is the little hoodie that I have nearly finished for P. It just needs 6 buttons, which I hope to get in town today.

On the right under the machine is the roman blind that I am making for M's next door neighbour. I think I have served my apprenticeship in roman blind making now - 24 at the last count!!!! This one will soon be finished and off to Shrewsbury for fitting in S's study.

Oh and the finished journal on the window sill which I attempted to put in our blog shop - think Wipso will have to pop over and tidy the shelves as I am not so clever at arranging the gifts so neatly!!

Then I remembered that someone said they wanted to see the fabric stash. I have only scattered a few of the "cool colour" box that M keeps so neatly. On the left some gorgeous bits of sari silk, voile, chiffon, lurex, tie dye and lots more. Just small pieces that will be made into tiny collages or "dumfed" onto cards.

Now I have to fold them all carefully and replace them in the box!!

Also next to the hoodie you can see the items I bought from our local pound shop.
A cute little felt basket which will be perfect to hold the little egg cosy I crocheted for P. - and a choc. egg of course.
10 Easter cards and envelopes - (I know you wonderful card makers will be horrified but I loved the pics and thought I would find a use for them somewhere!)
A page of Easter stickers - my infants teaching niece might be interested in these.
I also bought a pack of self adhesive photo paper and a pack of 6 padded posting bags -6" square. All items a pound each so I think I did well. What do you think?

I am posting this early so that I can get off to town for buttons and a wedding album for M's gorgeous dumfed cover. I might just nip over to Julia's blog first and see what everyone else has on their desk today.
Thanks for popping in - Have a great day!

Gosh you're busy Twiggers. I love the little hoddie for the baby, my baby had on ein pink and we stitched on a load of those little ribbon roses..it ended up being called her film star jacket! Like the look of your £1 bargains, you realise you plan to give most of it away!

Lots on the go as always Twiglet. If only they knew just how much fabric we have between us eh? Mine of course is never as organised and colour coordinated as yours though. :-)

you craft sisters are always so busy busy busy... i love that box of fabric it looks very tactile and the colours are so scrummy. That little cardigan will look lovely on little P - i've seen pics of her and she's such a cutie - she'll look sweet in it!!!

You are clever making blinds - me? I go to ikea and get one that 'hopefully' fits.
