What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday - WOYWW 493

Late post but I remembered! I mean to play along every week and then it's Friday and I realise it's whizzed past. Today I took a picture and am determined to post it.

Hello fellow desk hoppers - here's my desk out in the workshop today. I had actually made a halfhearted attempt to tidy it a bit before the piccy but - it was a futile exercise! If you could see my house. I'm shaking my head as I type this - the desk pretty much represents it.
Whoopidodooings: Carmen Wing - WOYWW What's On My Workdesk Wednesday
I dusted off the meltpot this week - I don't think I have used it in years. I went to the Knitting and Stitching show at Alexandra Palace in October (which was AMAZING!) and one of the artists, Jenny O'Leary, had loads of gorgeous tissue paper examples in her sketchbook that had involved bleach with wax resists so I just had to have a play. Don't think I did it quite right but had fun trying and my attempts have filled a few pages in my uni journal - I am going to have a go at finding images within those images later.

I am going to keep this short so I can hop around a few of the desks over at Stamping Ground. A quick question though. I know I have a few very loyal people that still keep up with my very sporadic posts (thank you, thank you, thank you) and I have a question. I have started blogging my uni work over at the other blog. The tutors said we could blog our reflections which was a godsend for me as I am awful at the writing part of my journal - I just stick in the pictures and expect them to read my mind. Apparently they can't do that. So to up my marks on that side of things I am waffling away over there but don't want them to have to sift through everything else and that's why it's separated from here.  My question is - I get people asking what I'm up to so would people like me to double post here or would you like a link to there or just post here as and when I have time? If you are interested its:  The writing is a bit (not much) more formal than I do here. My latest project is to write, illustrate and publish a book in 9 weeks. Arg.

Thanks for stopping by today :)


  1. Hi, Carmen.. you must be just linking up with Julia as I shut her tab down on my computer.... then come back to mine and here you are!
    i have been reading your other blog but haven't been very good at leaving comments; which I really should, as it drives me mad that we write our blogs and get a fair few hits and then hardly anyone comments!! However, I'd say, don't double post -it's far too much work. I wish I'd known you were going to the Stitching show, I had fully intended to go on the Saturday but then just went to Kew as usual!

    1. Thank you Helen - I'll take that advice. Don't worry about commenting though thank you for my surprise one earlier. I was all "Ooh, who is this?" as the tutors aren't going to be looking till the end of the unit. I went on the Sunday on the advice of my textiles tutor. She helped on the artist stalls and she said it's much less bonkers on the Sunday and it was - really lovely, had time to talk to the artists etc. Definitely going back again next time.

  2. Hi Carmen. Sounds like life is busy, busy, busy, for you - so much going on. I wish you well with your uni work.
    Take care. God bless.

  3. Hi Carmen, I agree with Helen don't double post. I'll call back when I can and have a look at the other blog. Good luck with the Uni work. Have a great woyww, Angela x16x

  4. Hi Carmen, totally agree with Helen, don't put that much pressure on yourself! A link is a great help, I shall be popping round later to see what I've been missing. :) Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #9 X

  5. Glad I popped back today as I missed you yesterday. I'd just add a link to your posts here rather than make more work for yourself Carmen. Good luck with the book! Sarah #4

  6. Hi Carmen, your post just makes me think you and me both... I'm still living out of boxes after my kitchen refurb & other things that life seems to be throwing our way atm.
    My melt pot is hidden in a cupboard along with some other things, it's on my to do list to sort and use more next year as i've been using little pans to melt wax & it cools much to quickly for me.
    I will check out the other blog.. 9 weeks to write a book **GASP** keeping everything crossed hee hee!!
    Happy Sunday & belated woyww Tracey #10
