AAARGH! Domesticity has struck! On my workdesk today is (dramatic music)
The SEWING MACHINE!
As a matter of fact, I do rather enjoy sewing. I met the Love of My Life at a Star Trek convention (it's true!) and I used to love making the costumes for the fancy dress. (Our Finest Hour was as Doctor Chaotica and Queen Arachnia.) However, creating a costume for a fun occasion is a different matter from making cushion covers, which is what I was doing. See, our memory foam mattress topper developed amnesia and had to be replaced; but there were lots of good bits still left on it and, as we all know, Crafters Do Not Waste Anything. So, after cutting the good bits off and giving them a good wash, I am making some bits into cushions for the car. (As a matter of fact, the little offcuts are great sponges for applying paint and ink etc; however, I wouldn't recommend chopping up a good memory foam mattress just to use in your crafting.) For more interesting workdesks I would go to Julia Dunnit's blog to find out about WOYWW if I were you.
Anyhoo, the Austerity Measures continue. This is one of Stamps Away's while chipboard shapes covered with some paper that has been in the stash for a loooong time and embellished with some of the rolled paper roses (as seen earlier this week) and some glass pebbles (stuck on with Pinflair glue). The butterfly was originally yellow but a bit of Sir Tim's Bundled Sage ink soon sorted that out!
