On My Desk.... Wednesday

Ah.... Wednesday. My assistant went to the Melbourne Show with her Daddy and I SEWED... uninterrupted. What pure joy!

I worked on the new Carry-All bag and made a fresh new Clutch sample to replace the tired old ones. I also worked on a few new tips and tutorial posts (watch this space!!). But I still didn't finish the moleskin hat...

The fabric on the bags is from the MOD range by Timeless Treasures. It brings back memories of my older sisters' dresses (and platform shoes) when I was a kid in the 70's.

I was so engrossed in sewing that I didn't even notice the mess I'd left after yesterday's CUTTING FRENZY until about 4pm today.... when I was inspired to share that with you, too. This is a small portion of the chaos - that general area of the studio looked like a cyclone had struck.


More desks over at Kirsty's...

How lovely and inviting your desk looks! My little boy is 20 months so I have to put all the pointy things away while he's awake :(

Thanks for linking to my fabric-printing tute, I've had some new visitors coming over from your link!

Hmmm ... you're desk looks pretty tidy to me. I wonder what that says about me then?!

I love that print - I have a bit of a thing for brown and blue together. Very nice!

I am sure you assistant had a great day at the show with Daddy. It is amazing how much you can get done when you don't have to constantly be aware of what the littlies are up to
