WOYWW - #56 ......... & A BIT OF 'ART'

Here we are again WOYWWers. I've been pretty busy on the crafting since last week (for me anyway). I've finished projects from 2 workshops I've been to in the last few weeks (scroll back a couple of posts) and almost finished a 3rd plus I've finished my piece for our June project for the blog I share with my 3 friends - check the blog out here if you have a little time. I'll be posting my offering on there either tonight, time permitting, or tomorrow. Quite a few photos to share today so I'll try not to waffle (always the hard part for me, Lol!).

This is the 3rd project from a workshop I did at Graphicus with Lynn Robinson-Hunter - one of the Ikea mirrors that are brilliant for showing off different techniques, this one being all things Ranger. I just want to make a couple of Grungepaper flowers to finish it off. I'm halfway there with them as you can see by the pieces.

As promised last week, this is the 'untidy' (for me) end of my long worktop.

If you want to see what's hanging on the door covered by the carrier bag go here. I still haven't found a proper home for it! There are lots of pieces crying out to be 'altered or decorated' but one thing I won't be changing is the gorgeous set of little drawers that I found last week in TKMaxx!

The drawers/cubby holes set was another TKMaxx find which was a bargain having been quite battered. I've prepared it ready for decorating but haven't decided what I want to do to it yet.

That's it from me this week and if you want to see what all this WOYWW business is all about visit Julia. She explains it far better than me and you'll see just how many more of us (lots) are getting hooked. I'm looking forward to getting round as many desks as I can tonight.

Have a lovely day everyone.

So jealous of that counter top and cabinets. When I grow up I want to be organized like you. :) Love the project on the table and can't wait until you share up close!

Your mirror has turned out beautifully Lesley, well worth taking your time with... stunning results!
We do have similar tastes - your cream storage unit has a twin which resides in my studio, only difference is mine is very dark brown/black (not sure, depends on the light at the time) and it also came from TK Maxx last year.

Your mirror is beautiful! I bought a couple a while a go and am determined to get at least one done before much longer. Great seeing the photos of your desk too. I'm envious! xx

Julia Dunnit said...

The light in your space is lovely Lesley. Really nice to see what you're working on - a masterpiece! Looks like you've sought out inspiration too - impressive planning, not a daily part of my method!

Angie said...

such a lot to look at the storage in the last shot....and the dog tooth rose/flower will be very impressive. Gave your mirror a good nose on close up ...what a lot of work you have put into it.
