WOYWW 292# What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

Hi Workdesk friends.
Back again for another Wednesday.

Angela here to show you:
"What's on my Workdesk this Wednesday".

If you don't know what this is all about then please visit the
Stamping Ground and our dear host Julia will explain and all will be revealed.

So here is my desk this week.
Only first!!!!

Couldn't resist this, just for Julia, hope she likes it.
Those of you who know Julia's blog will understand the significance of this photo.
The shadows are myself and 'Him Indoors'.
The two shadows at the bottom are Maisie and Stanley.

It occurred to me what fun it would be if some of you joined in and posted some similar photos.
And now for my desk.
Anyone who has been round recently will know that I have been playing and the piece of fabric on the right is one of the results. The larger piece on the left is the start of my next playtime and is a layer of various synthetic fabrics with a cotton base, ready to be heated up.


This is a close-up of what you can expect to happen after the heating.

I will be back soon to post you the results.
Right! now hope you will go and see what everyone else has been up to, I certainly intend to.
Thanks for popping round and have a great week.

  1. Wow, what an interesting effect after it's been heated, can't wait to see what you do with this! Great shadow photo, I didn't know you were so tall. ha!! hugs :)

  2. That looks VERY exciting, Angela! Look forward to seeing more of this! I am getting more into textiles this year and am looking forward to doing some more meltings lol!

    Thanks for your visit and your lovely comment. So glad you like my latest (revived ancient) project. Seeing your post reminds me it's Wednesday... goodness a whole week has gone by somehow. I haven't thought about WOYWW... Maybe I'll have time to rustle up something in the morning - it's now 2.15 a.m. and time for bed!


  3. looks pretty interesting Angela- can't wait to see what is next! xx

  4. Interesting experiments with the fabric! A world of possibilities! Great idea sharing Julia's trademark shadow photos - I think I have one we took years ago. With the way things are going I might have to wait for a sunny day until spring to take a more recent one! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #27

  5. What an interesting project you have on the go - I'm really looking forward to seeing the next installment! I love the effect you get with heating it - quite spectacular. Hope you have a great week,

  6. It's all looking rather interesting Angela...sure it will be fab!! Yes the shadow photos would be good - might give it a go if we ever get any sunshine. Happy WOYWW, Cindy #44

  7. The photo is brilliant, I am sure Julia will love that one! If only we had some sunshine here..... sigh. Is that fabric the Tyvek stuff you mentioned previously? I really like the outcome on the purple piece. Hugs, Anne xx

  8. Love the photo, Angela, very Juliaesque!!
    Looks like you are having fun with your fabric project, it looks really interesting.
    Have a good week
    hugs Lisax #26

  9. This looks very interesting....looking forward to seeing more, it looks fab! Hugs Carole Z X

  10. Ah Angela, I have performed this technique before, and it never ceases to amaze me how wonderful it turns out.

    I wish I had a "bud" to take a similar "selfie" with, but it's far too cold and snowy with bitter winds, to ask anyone to join me for the Julia inspired photo. Maybe in the spring (grin).

    Happy belated New Year and happy WOYWW from # 2.

  11. Oh! I need to try this again - the most fascinating technique - love your colour choices! Chris 43

  12. Looking forward to seeing more! Happy 2015 Anne x #23

  13. Wow your pics are getting more and more interesting. Can't wait to see how it all evolves.

  14. Love that photograph! Might just try it. The piece on the desk looks really fun and interesting too.
    Happy WOYWW!

  15. That's so cool looking!! Fabulous!

    Happy Crafting!

  16. Love the pic Angela...perfect conditions and oh my, aren't you a long legged lovely!!! I love the shadows, specially when Mr Dunnit plays too!
    Are you doing more fairy work? Am intrigued by the process!

  17. Hi Angela, Happy WOYWW. Good shadow shot! The fabric looks fascinating, I wonder what you will do with it - maybe I will explore and find out.
    Lovin' the blue and green drawers too.

  18. Great shadow shot! Makes me think of a story we read in English class: Daddy Longlegs.
    That burned fabric looks so cool! Did you intend that?
    Gabriele 29

  19. Ah, I've seen Julia's photo's. If my dearly beloved is up for it we'll try a similar photo.
    Your burnt fabric is coming on nicely. Do you know what you are going to do with it yet. Looking forward to seeing what happens next....
    Have a great week,

  20. Love your photo! Do the pics mean that the fabrics both shrink and burn? Is an ordinary heattool enough for the effect? Looks really interesting, can't wait to see what it becomes :)

  21. Well this all looks rather interesting, sewing not really my forte that's for sure but I do like what you have created so far, thanks for sharing.

    Hugs Eliza & Yoda 78
