WOYWW 285

What's On Your Work desk Wednesday?
 This is on my desk, my latest....Obsession  Project. So, It begins.
This is the newest 'Desk'...in the room abandon by one of my DD's. It is now officially the Sewing Room!!
I first saw the idea on Pinterest.... Visit Katwise
http://www.katwise.net/blog/
to find out more, prepare to be awed!! Imagine my delight when I could buy a pattern to guide me through this process. It has involved a couple of trips to the second hand store...
I think I am into the hundreds of sweaters at this point. Several snickering customers watching me LOAD, and I do mean LOAD the carts up.
 {In my defense, it will take 20 or more sweaters to make each project}  I am committed to at least 6, maybe more....Right now I am washing and sorting.
I made a 'specific trip' to the fabric store for 20 spools of brightly colored thread. {fabric stores, another danger zone for me....}
  
Okay, so this is just the teaser, I hope to have more on this by next week.

If you are looking for a fun way to spend a few hours, or you want to share 'What's on Your Desk' pop on by and do some hopping through the creative desks from around the world.
 
Thank You Julia for your continued Wednesday open house!
