WOYWW for W!

Happy Wednesday everyone!!
Today my desk is covered with paper pattern pieces as I am designing a new top for Wipso.
We work together on these projects - she tells me what she would like and then I go away and come up with something. ( Actually she said it was too much trouble for me but I am happy to play with patterns and fabric, so its no problem!!)


Now, on my window ledge you can see the unadorned WOYWW easel - we all love them and I know they will feature on at least 100 desks today!!! Thanks so much to Julia and Mr Dunnit - such a thoughtful thing to do and perfect for the occasion.
Hanging off my sewing machine is the prototype for my padded hangers. I made it up in white silky fabric with a crochet flower attachable brooch. I will pop it in the blog shop later. I have lots more ideas for them but I get a bit side-tracked. ( I am a bit of a butterfly!!)
Oh and mentioning butterflies - not many about up here yet. Lots of bees on my flowers so I thought I would leave you with a few of my pics! I shall be popping over to Julia's blog to join in the WOYWW fun later. I think I managed to visit about 40 of you last week - I will try harder this week, I promise!!

Hi Jo, lovely to see you the other day, i've sold six of those brooches now and have orders for more!!! I love your coathanger, so much that i'd like one! It would be perfect for my wedding dress. Annie said she'll alter my dress for me so wondered if i could have one when i get around to taking it over if you still have them? Gorgeous flowers.

Angie said...

I so envy your sewing talent ...and all your others too. LOVE the beautiful flower photos and thanks for the plant identification ...should I keep it of TRY and remove it???? now thats a thought ...at the moment the plant is winning.

Paula Gale said...

I need to have a look at the shop - not been for a while even though I had a quick look the other day, i need a proper one.

Oooh I love to see piles of material and patterns strewn about on a desk - always makes me want to get some of my (many) sewing projects to do out!

judie said...

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

That's a really lovely padded hanger. And you are so talented. About the only thing I can do with dress patterns is use them as backgrounds in my altered art. You and Wipso make a great team and I bet together you could beat Serena and Venus (grin). Happy belated WOYWW.

Julia Dunnit said...

Gorgeous flower pics. I have a lounge floor covered in pattern pieces - but am not adapting or re-designing, that is beyond me...how lovely that you find pleasure in that which drives me to tears!
Love the hangar - don't rule out a vampy black and red 'hen night' type one will ya!!

craftimamma said...

Those flowers are absolutely stunning. Your workdesk looks very 'interesting' I'm intrigued to know what your design is like now.

I wish I had my own personal fashion designer, lol. Can't wait to see what all those pieces of paper turn into.

mckinkle said...
