WOYWW - the winner is.....

Firstly, thanks to all who left great suggestions for my little fabric desk tidy/ gift box.
There were some great ideas - scroll back to last week's comments if you are interested.
Just for fun and future reference - I printed off the comments, closed my eyes and stuck a pin in it!
The name that was "pinned" was.... Mrs D - thats Chris.
She left a brilliant quote too from William Morris, who said 'Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful' . I shall aspire to it but not sure I can promise on that one! lol.

So my little tesk tidy, tissue holder and lavender bag will come winging your way Chris - just email your details to me.

I made a few more little "fabric boxes" this week and will be selling them at the craft fair.
I am never sure what price to put on anything I make - much better at giving it away - lol!!!!
No doubt, daughter Maxine will get me organised on that one!

Here is my messy desk today.



I am in a "start a project but don't quite finish it" mode this week.
I always get lots of ideas and flit from one thing to another.
For example...
This week I have knitted a little shrug for a friends grand daughter, half-made lots of scrapbox dollies, crocheted some chunky infinity scarves and made my fabric gift boxes.
Never a dull moment.
Hope life for you is just as much fun!

Thanks for calling in to see what I get up to and for all your lovely comments.
Maxine was thrilled that you liked her poppy pictures on last week's blog.

Join in with our WOYWW blog hop here.
Have a good week.
x Jo

Thanks for choosing me to win your wonderful giveaway, I am thrilled. It will certainly meet both of William Morris's criteria.
I love the little shrug on your desk, given me an idea for me niece, she's having a Cesarean section on November 27 and I still haven't got round to knitting anything yet.
Love those little hearts too.
Blessings

loving all your makes and maybe you can pinch another idea from my blog this week as the triangular pots have proved popular and are so easy to make.
You are just like me as I'm much better at giving than selling!!!

Congrats to Chris! Could duplicate your crafty life to mine. I hate pricing items to sell also, never a clue. Lots of fun items in that photo. Enjoy a creative week #83 this week

You've been one busy lady! Beautiful shrug! Other items on your desk are pretty cool, too! Happy WOYWW!

So very sweet!!

BumbleVee said...

You are always busy, that's for sure ....I think the reason I am really enjoying making the tiny cushions is that I actually have managed to finish one or two .... probably because they are so small... perfect for me ...

Yikes... talk about late at desk snooping, my apologies for not popping by sooner, but DH was off for a long weekend and I am getting the desk cleared before visitors arrive later this week! Annette
