It's that time again - WOYWW over at Julia's place.  Although strangely she doesn't have a photo of her workdesk today - she's sitting in the sun somewhere nice and warm with a glass of something in one hand and her ipad in the other!
So here is my workdesk today, well, my work tray really.  I had some offcuts of card that I just couldn't bring myself to throw away so I die cut them and put them around a pre-cut Nestie I was given.  It  is a way of using up the card without having to use whole pieces of die cuts.
You know me and making things go as far as possible for my charity cards!  You never know when you might just need that piece of white card which is only 2 inches square! LOL!!
Now, tell me, have you ever seen any wool balls like this?!?!?  I hadn't before my Aunt came back from the USA and gave them to me to use for the crocheted kitty blankets!  I put in a 10p coin in the photo so you can see the size of them.  They're huge and very neatly wound I have to say.
Anyway the kitties don't mind where it comes from or what colour it is, as long as it's nice and warm and comfortable when they lie on it!!!  I do love making the crocheted blankets, it's easy to do whilst zoning out in front of the TV!

Enjoy WOYWW everyone!

Happy 3rd WOYWW!!
It probably hasn't reached you yet (as I sent it second class) but there is quite a large parcel on its way to you. I had a sort through my stash of sewing and have sent you a few bits and pieces for use for your charity. I hope you like them and that they are suitable for your purpose!! And I've had a clear out so it's win-win as far as I'm concerned!!
Hugs, lLJ #77 xx

Love your die-cut

I don't seem to throw anything away either but my 'bits' box is taking over my craft room so time for a clear out I think. Love the wool, great colour. Happy WOYWW Anniversary, Anne x #33

Oh you made me laugh at the yarn! That is the average skeins here - unless is specialty yarn (which is smaller skeins).

I keep little bits of paper too, usually in a baggie. I also use the back of business cards.... shhhhh

Ah, but I agree that even the smallest piece of card stock can make it's way into something. Happy day after WOYWW from #2.

Queen Of Toys said...

Yep I have seen balls of wool like that and I have seen some even bigger again like 5 times that size, yes I am telling you the truth.

Thanks for sharing your desk this week.

Happy 3rd Anniversary WOYWW
