WOYWW 51

Morning everyone,

I have to confess I wasn't going to join in this week as my mojo was on fire the end of last week and the weekend - for the first time ever my children were happy to entertain themselves during the last couple of the days of the holidays so it left me time to get on with crafty things and I did loads of sewing! will blog more about that later - anyhow yesterday I got the house to myself and my mojo mysteriously disappeared! How annoying - instead I spent most of the day sat on the settee doing some hand embroidery whilst catching up with the all the crime dramas I had taped over the holidays - how lazy!  Still I am hoping for  better things today....

Here is my desk with everything just dumped on it so no specific project at the moment:


Yes the table runner is new, that was just one of last weeks creations and its embroidered on the back too!  Mannequin is new - a great find for £3.99 in B&M bargains can't wait to pimp her up!  That lovely tin from Paperchase holds all my buttons, that plastic bag is a little giveaway as I am two posts away from 300!  The material piece to the left is a new project I am working on I think its called crazy quilting - not sure - anyway that was the one that stumped me yesterday - I got all all my buttons and ribbons to funk it up and kind of lost interest - hopefully that wont last. 

Thanks for joining me again this week - if you too would like to join in the fun of sharing your desk with the world pop over to Julias.

Can I just also say a big hello to Scrapfanaatpeter - thanks for following me :)

Thanks for looking - Rained in from Solihull

I have one of those Mannequins but mine is probably taller - from The Range ages ago and still naked. Tut tut!
Hope mojo comes back soon - nice to have a relaxy day though.
Hugs, Neet #3 xx

Well you certainly have plenty to keep you going there! Looking forward to seeing what you do with your mannequin x

Great desk and I love your new table runner. It's so British :-) It's amazing that our inspiration can disappear in a few seconds. I hate that too. Mostly I take some other small jobs, just like you do. I'm working on a small hexagon patchwork now. Hope you find some inspiration today with all our desks. Happy WOYWW. xFranka

Julia Dunnit said...

Well sunshine gal - rained in or not - that runner is FAB! My goodness you're prolific! Your mojo will be back, it just has to adjust to having the place to itself again - so fickle!!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Wow, that table runner is awesome!! Better hide it or Julia might snaffle it - she's got a thing about Union jacks!! I am amazed by your ability to quilt, wish I had the patience...
Hugs, LLJ # 33 xx

lisa said...

Isn't that just the way of things. When you have time on your hands, Mr Mojo slopes off. I hope he returns pronto.
You look very busy there, I like the sound of crazy quilting.
Happy WOYWW

I hate it when you have the time but not the inclination! Love the runner, did you make it yourself?

I have a rainy day all to myself but I can't really be bothered to do any crafting so I think I'll just get creative with some hair dye!

Pretty mannequin and I love the runner, fab union jacks. Am using my WOYWW snooping as an excuse to munch my way through a bag of mini eggs! Take care Zo xx 77

Gabrielle said...

Love how you were so creative and made such lovely things and then have been so honest that you've run out of steam on some projects - be assured that it's not just you who does that! Your runner, btw, is lovely! #42

Redanne said...

Well I am off to B&M to see if I can get one of those mannequins too, just love it and love all your union jacks too. I so know what you mean about Mr Mojo.........Anne #61

Twiglet said...

Fab table runner - bet that took ages to do. A wild and windy day here too so I am happy to keep dry and craft for the afternoon - well I did spend the morning cleaning kitchen cupboards so I think I deserve it don't you!!

Danielle said...

The table runner is beautiful. I can't wait to see your finished mannequin. dani138

Rita said...

Love your runner. I also look forward to see what you do with the mannequin too. Hugs Rita xx 67

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Oh, I just hate that when the mojo does and hides when you have the chance to play. I think catching up on your crime dramas is productive! sort or. My hubby would call that a day well spent. Your table runner is totally cool.

Tertia said...

I hateit when mr. Mojo decides to go on holiday! Usually he always picks the worst time for me. Hope he gets back soon.
Happy WOYWW

Carolyn Phillips said...

Wow, it looks like you have had a busy week. I am sure the mojo will be back soon and your mannequin will be dressed.

Hazel said...

Love the runner. I'm sure it did you good to have a 'lazy' time and you did get some embroidery done, so that doesn't sound lazy to me - (Hazel, #173) x

It looks like you've been having LOTS of fun on your desk this week!!

I'm glad you found the badge!! My hubby has been calling our daughter Sunshine since she was about 16 years old. I cut that out for a page for her. Sunshine is a GREAT name huh?!?!

I love the idea of 'pimping up' the mannequin. The table runner looks fab did you make it

Neesie said...

My mojo is very tempermental so I can relate to your plight.
It just likes to show us who's boss!
I think to sit and relax is a good ploy ~ that'll make it think you're not bothered and he'll return pronto :D
Have fun with WOYWW ~ Neesie #45

RosC said...

I don't think I've visited you before so went for a 'wander'. Do like the tags from last week, and the table runner looks great.
I don't think that fine embroidery is total loss of inspiration. It needs some incubation time I reckon. :-)
Thanks for visiting.

BJ said...

Hi, Thanks for visiting me, I have posted a better photo on my Layout now btw. LOVE your table runner, so into patriotic stuff at the moment too. And that little dress form, oooh hoping it is all "dressed" up another week. BJ#51

VonnyK said...

Great table runner. I am sure the crazy quilt will look great with the buttons and ribbons etc, hope you get your interest back soon. I have so many half done things, they fill up most of my room, so best to try and finish things.
Have a great day.

Sherry Edwards said...

Your desk still looks super interesting even without a specific project on it. Love that bold fabric with the union jacks on.

Thanks for already coming to see my desk this week x

... from rainy, windy and sunny Romford - we'll had it all today - lol x

Jan McC said...

Thanks for your visit. I think we may have the same addiction of starting several projects and jumping back and forth some times. I am trying to focus on getting just one completely done and off my mind. We'll see how that goes. LOL

Lisa-Jane said...

What a fab table runner and so appropriate for this year! Its so annoying when your mojo runs off with the children isn't it? I always find the same thing, if they are in my face then my mojo is in my pocket but if they go off to play then it seems to go with them! #36

Kate said...

The table runner is fantastic!! I know what you mean my inspiration always peaks when I am busy doing something else.
