WOYWW 290

Hi Everyone,

It's Christmas Eve wooHOOO!!! I have lots and lots I should be doing, but just thought I would squeeze in a little blogging time, because it's also Wednesday - the day to gather over at Julia's Stamping Ground to share What's On Your Workdesk this week.

My own workroom is out of action again until after Christmas, but I've been fitting in a bit of crafty time at the dining room table. A friend gave me this copy of the latest Molly Makes magazine, with a really cute retro-style kit on the front ...


I love these free kits you get with magazines - this one includes everything you need to make this sweet Christmas deco plus ideas for using up the leftovers ...


Mine didn't come out quite the same as the picture - partly because I didn't have access to a photocopier to enlarge the template so had to make it half the size, and partly because I couldn't be bothered to run upstairs and get some glue, so I stitched all the bits on instead - but I'm happy with it anyway and will probably attach it to a gift for my DH ...


As it has a retro vibe, I thought it would work well for this week's theme over at Tag Tuesday - "A Very Vintage Christmas".

Well, I just have time to nip over to Julia's to check out some real workdesks and see what everyone else has been up to this week.

Happy Christmas everyone!!! HO HO HO !!! :o)

Who doesn't like free kits!? That sentence about the glue and stitching would have sounded like this on my blog "I couldn't be bothered to do the stitching so I ran upstairs to get some glue"! Wishing you a very merry Christmas Annie! I look forward to visiting your blog in 2015! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #24

The tag is beautiful. It looks much nicer with the stitching. Although I would have run upstairs to get the glue! It would have taken me a day to stitch that!
Have a lovely Christmas,
