Todays wip & my workspace

Look, how tidy and organised I am when I'm crafting...

(I am being sarcastic by the way!)

I know, I'm messy!. I'm like
Monica from 'Friends', obsessive when it comes to coasters and crumbs, always hoovering. But, my work room is a bit like Monica's closet!

Anyway, here's this mornings wip, now finished, hedgehog pattern slightly adjusted, am much happier with this version.

And, as I was photographing my desk, I wanted to show you my favorite thing on it (apart from the bar of yummy swiss chocolate I've just finished eating!), my little dish of buttons I use for eyes and noses.

They look good enough to eat too!

I've got some of those buttons too and they really are lovely! I don't think I would be able to keep them in a bowl though because I think the children just HAVE to play with them!

Your hedgehog is looking lovely and if you think your work area is a mess you should see mine right now - although on second thoughts, perhaps you shouldn't!!! ;)

Your hedgehog is lovely and the buttons really do look good enough to eat!

I love the buttons! They really do look like candies! The new hedgie is looking good and more hedgie-like. Although I did like the original one too.

I'm exactly like you in Monica tendancies - the house is always spotless, but I craft messily and things occassionally fall out and attack me when I open cupboards.

I love the button bowl! x

I love those buttons. I have some too, though I have never seen the triangle ones.

I have a lot of the same little buttons that I keep in a jelly jar. Love to use them! Just used some for centers on some flowers.

Such cute wips! Those buttons do look good enough to eat...my first thought was that they were cereal!
