Welcome to another edition of What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

All I have to say today is, workdesk?  Seriously?

No, I don’t have workdesks.  I have places where things are piled up. Not a workdesk in sight.  Every horizontal space is covered with things that want doing.  Some things that need to be done, like the bridal satin for a friend’s wedding outfit.  Other things that might never get done.  We’ll see.


The table I’ve shown for the past few weeks hasn’t changed much, the piles have only gotten deeper.  Instead, here’s the view from behind the table.  Good luck if either one of us needs to iron something.

I’m most excited about my new tool dock for jewelry making tools.  Having them all in a bucket was Just. Not. Working.

It’s not like I need any new clothes or anything,  but I’m a sucker for the $1.99 and .99 patterns at Joanns.


I think the tropical print will be great in this  McCall’s 6399 blouse. (And I really, truly hate the print the model is wearing.  Good thing this pattern had sketches or I would have ignored it completely.)


The blue & white print (middle left) actually looks prettier on camera than irl.  I got it on clearance to use as a muslin for this dress McCalls 6504.  With all those seams, and needing nearly four yards of fabric, a muslin seems wise.


This dress, Butterick 5749, got mixed reviews.  If I do make it, it will have to be lengthened and the neckline upped a bit. Dunno if it’s worth the bother.


Got no fabric in mind for this one yet, McCalls 6607.  It just seemed like something that would be fun for layering in the fall.

If you do decide to go for any of these patterns, be sure to check out what others have to say over at PatternReview.com.  I’ve found them to be most helpful.

Whether your stash is neat or messy, I hope you find some time to be creative this week!
