Wow where has that time gone?  Here we are celebrating the 300th week of Wednesday madness.  Huge thanks to our wonderful organiser, Julia, for keeping us going so long and here's to many more happy weeks of linking up with friends all around the world.

You saw my desk at it's worse last week with mess, stash, dust and clutter everywhere.  I will say that I not only found the beads, trims and sequins that I was looking for but I managed to finish the Wedding dress and the little bride wore it with pride on Saturday and looked simply amazing.  :-)  Job well done!

This week I am sharing this....

My desk in all it's glory :-)

I gave it all a good sort out, clean and tidy up on Monday and, as it was Hubby's birthday yesterday and we will be looking after the twins all day today, my desk will be looking like this until tomorrow at least :-)

The other quick pic I'm sharing this week is my guilty pleasure.....Saturday, that much older sister of mine [Jo] and, I had a rare treat of some quality time together and went to our local fabric shop.....who wouldn't given the chance?

This was my 'I saw it and just had to have it' purchase while we were there. Did I need it?...nope.  Do I know what I'm going to do with it?...nope.  As they say watch this space......but of course it may well have to be stroked for a while first.  :-)

That's it from me for this week folks.  Sorry I haven't got more to share with you but I will try to get messy again by next week.  Leave me a little message to let me know you've called by and I will do my best to return the visit asap.

Love those drawers! Nice organizing! And so much fun to spend time with your sister. Love the fabric, too. Years ago when I did a lot of sewing the fabric would "tell" me what it wanted to be. Yep, weird but that's what seemed to happen. Hope you have a great time with the twins! Happy WOYWW!

Happy belated birthday to your hubby. Hope you shared a special moment or three together.

Love that fabric. Mostly the poppy fabric that caught my eye. You and that MUCH OLDER sister of yours must have had a fun day out and about. Happy 300th WOYWW from #3.

Hi Annie happy 300th WOYWW. I've been away for a few weeks so glad I made it back to post for the milestone 300 - Julia's a gem for starting this crazy desk hopping blog, I love it and am hooked - so many lovely ladies and so much inspiration, it's kept me focused in some lonely moments.Gorgeous new fabrics and a great tidy sewing area, I'll have to have a read back at what you've been creating. Have a great week Cheers RobynO#14

Hi Annie,

What a great, clean desk!! I love the new fabric. I must confess, I buy scraps of fabric and I don't even sew.... but I have a machine and a desire! tee hee

Thanks for visiting me already!
Happy belated 300 WOYWW

fairy thoughts said...

Hi Annie
Ha ha as you may know I work in a haberdashery and fabric store..... A dangerous job for a crafter like me.... Anyway I often say to customers ... " see it, like it, buy it, stroke it" and they always agree...... Sounds just like you...... It's gorgeous so enjoy it too
Thanks for your visit

Wonderfully neat desk, Annie - and some gorgeous got-to-have fabric. Glad you had such a great day. Yes, thanks, I'm hoping John will indeed be up to the show - but if he isn't Mrs D and I will still go - we will just have to park in the ordinary parking instead of the disabled area... oh well...
Take care. God bless.
