Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday.


I'm joining in with the lovely Julia over at WOYWW  today.  I'm currently working on some designs for my own Christmas cards, I have my gorgeous new Derwent Inktense pencil set out (that hubby treated me to on our hols).  My watercolours on standby ~ not quite sure what medium to use maybe a bit of everything.


A bit of a sneaky peek... and that's all your getting for now =D


I want to have a bit of a shout out..... I ordered some patterned felt at the weekend from the lovely Emma over at Sew Sweet and it arrived yesterday.


They are absolutely gorgeous, and fantastic quality.  Not only was I super excited and the creative juices were flowing, but there was also an extra little surprise in the package.......



In amongst the goodies was buttons, and I love buttons.

Thank you so much Emma for a fantastic service, and I would highly recommend her website to anyone.  I'm now eyeing up some pom pom ribbon/trim and polka dot buttons ~ so why not pop along now to Sew Sweet and take a look yourself.

After opening the felt I just had to get making, so yesterday I made a little padded heart and hair clip


and the ideas keep coming... I'm thinking there may be a brooch and some cards on tomorrow blog.

Thank you for popping along.

Love Em x

Love the heart and the hairclip. The peep at your Christmas card making looks interesting - I love my inktense pencils (well, at least I used to, before copics came along ... I must use them again soon) x

From what I can see of your own designs they look really beautiful! And I'm just a tad green over your Inktense set! Lovely felt too and great makes.

Ooh, I just got the exact same box of inktense pencils and I'm so happy with them. I love that felt too and what you are doing with it.

Wow, real planning!! I like the Joy with the stocking J. Printed felt huh - I don't do crafty sewing but it's very tempting!
