I was tagged by Constança to show my desk, which also happens to be my dining room table. At the end of each night (or so) I clear the table off until my next sewing session. This is probably best, because I would have one of those desks that was full of piles and overly messy.
I took these photos over the course of a weekend, so you can see me jump from project to project.
Photo 1 : Working on a plaid cotton quilt top for a Christmas gift, eating Coconut Liberte Yogourt and drinking hot chocolate
Photo 2 : Drafting a shoo-fly block for another new quilt using my French General jelly roll
Photo 3 : Adding the Mokuba trim to my new blue tunic
Photo 4 : Checking out flickr with my new Shinzi Katoh agenda and drinking hot chocolate (drinking hot chocolate seems to be mandatory when working, I am drinking some right now)
I’m usually the worst person to tag for these things, but I was determined to get my act together for this one. The three people whose desks I’d like to see are – Lauren, Ayalah & Rosalyn. You are meant to show your desk/working space as it is, without any editing or styling and then tag three more people. If anyone else out there wants to play along, just post a link here to a photo of your desk. (the messier the better!)
I hope you have a lovely weekend, friends. I’m making great progress with my holiday gift making. I won’t be able to tell you about a lot of it until after Christmas, but I’ve got a few projects that should be ‘safe’ to share with you.

Karyn, I’m eating Liberté Mocha yogurt as I’m reading your post! Where did you get your Shinzi Katoh agenda??
hi lois! i got my shinzi katoh agenda from the paper place on queen west here in toronto. this is my third year using these agendas.
It’s always fun to see what people’s work spaces look like! I’ll try to remember to make a blog post about my desk in the next day or so, and I’ll send you a link!
I love your sweet little needle book! Is that from one of the trunk shows?
I’m so glad to see your work table! I don’t usually like these memes but I thought this one was actually interesting.
Now I have confession to make: my work table is also my dining room table… but I don’t clear it at the end of the day! We usually have dinner on the sofa. I know it’s an awful thing to do but we do it… I have a very forgiving husband! 🙂
Thanks for tagging me Karyn! I will definitely post photos of my desk/work space in the next few days. Today is it un-naturally clear as are having friends over so I will be sure to take a photos when it is in its normal chaotic state!
thanks for sharing!! i used to use our dining room table… until i took over an entire room!
Hey Karyn, thanks for the Shinzi Katoh tip! 🙂
I’m so glad to see that your cutter is safely closed. 🙂
