WOYWW #268

My desktop makes me look as though I am multitasking but I am not!  The story is ....

The Paris magazines on the right are to remind me to finish my ATCs for Summer of Colour - they don't really work as a reminder cos they keep hiding under other stuff!
My needle broke while I was stitching on the fabric ATCs and, as yet, have not found another needle.  Truth be told .... couldn't be bothered to get up from my desk and find one ... too hot!
Started making name badge so that other members can remember my name - I am hopeless at remembering names - so we had a session of making name badges ..... I was on another planet at the time and missed this completely!  
My thinking is .... red, cos it's me..... dress form die cut from Library event ticket, cos I sew and C.R.U.N.C.H. is held at the Library.  Gold C and handwritten letters, cos my name begins with C. 
So this is my desk for today, it will change tomorrow and the next day until this hot weather starts to cool down.  The heat makes me feel so ill that I try to stay inside as much as I can and the best room to stay in  ...... the box room or Cat Free Zone!
Thank you Julia for hosting another WOYWWednesday - you do a grand job lassie!
Thank you to all my visitors.
Thank you for all the lovely comments - haven't yet found a way to respond properly but they are really appreciated.
Have a creative week everyone.

  13. I'm loving the ATC's with the flowers and sewing notions. I've not used a floral backgound...ummm. May steal that idea. Hope it cools off there. Here in Michigan we are in a cool spell. Enjoyed my visit today. Diane #51

  14. Hi Many thanks for your visit & kind words - hope you are managing to stay cool ! Ali #9

  15. Hello Christine. But of course you are multi-tasking - you are a lady!!! Great looking things on your desk - trust you managed to get more done to everything - and trust it has cooled somewhat by now. Yes, I'll post the pond when finished. Folks comments about it have been so very precious. Thanks for visiting.
    Take care. God bless.
