WOYWW 179

Tuesday night and Election night, here in the States  It's a close race and I keep jumping up and running to the living room to keep tabs on it. (Hey, I'm getting some exercise tonight LOL)
It is getting close to the end, only a couple more hours. BUT in the UK dear Julia has posted WOYWW: What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. She gets it going early for all us Yanks to get our desks post too.  What am I yabbering about? A trip around the world through your PC, looking at other people's work desks!!  If you haven't given it a try you should go here:

So what has Betsy got in store for you this week? Wooha, I've started playing with Christmas! From left to right there is my blog journal, almost empty roll of trim, happy birthday stamp, dink coaster, 2 small boxes (from Michael's today) they are for my Granddaughters to decorate as Christmas gifts, water pot with a wooden bracelet that will become a gift for my best friend, Almost finished birthday tag for my youngest GD, my first Christmas tag, a chip board tree and a corrugated box.
In the middle are some Thanksgiving stickers from Michael's (on sale for 50 cents), tattered flowers I was making poinsettias with (those tags are off screen, ready for a challenge, catch tomorrow's post), my glasses, dolphin paper weight, and ink pad. Across the front is a bag of colored leafing pieces, chip board ornaments waiting, gold paint pen and 6 ornaments ready to put onto something.


Last week I had a lot of responses to the Family quilt I made for a gift (THANKS FOR ALL THE LOVELY COMMENTS)  This is what I use, and it is very easy.  You can get it for dark fabric and t-shirt fabrics.  I run my photos through Print Shop, crop them and add a colored frame then print onto these sheets. FIRST WORD OF CAUTION: Make sure to print in the transfer mode!!! Especially if you are going to use any type of labeling, if you forget your words and pictures will come out in reverse!  I print the pictures, cut them apart and lay them face down on the quilt, in the order I want them to be.  Then you iron them with a hot iron SECOND WORD OF CAUTION: leave the paper backing on until everything has been ironed on.  If you pull the paper backing off then touch it with the iron it will smear.  Yes, the quilts are washable, just not iron-able. I made one for my mom and one for my MIL about 10 years ago.  The one I have is the mistake (see second word of caution), it is all cotton and I have bleached the heck out of it, over and over again cause my dog sleeps with me when DH is on a truck run.  Let me know if any of you in blog-land make one, I'd love to see pictures.
So that is it for this week, sorry it's so long Julia.  I promise to do better later.....LOL Have a great week.
Inky Hugs

  2. So sorry I didn't return your visit last week - it is not like me to miss all the fun so I must have been busy! Time to play today though :-) Your quilt is lovely and reminded me that I started a photo quilt - .... I don't like to think how many years ago and It is still unfinished as I dont feel competent enough to quilt it! I think I will have to give it a go as yours looks fab. Happy WOYWW from Helen 56

  17. Definitely very Christmassy Krisha, the little baubles look really cute. That quilt is still a work of love, even if you didn't quilt it in the traditional way, such a lot of work. Sounds like you've has a few mishaps along the way too!
