WOYWW!

What's on my workdesk this Wednesday morning?  Well, it's not pretty!  In fact, I'm not sure you can even tell that it's a desk!
I am participating in another postcard swap, a spin-off from Hanna's swap which is being hosted by Danielle at A Love Affair with Paper.  This time around I am making only four postcards, so progress is much faster! 

I decided to use the sewn strips paper that I made back in March.  One 12x12 page of sewn strips paper makes four 4x6 postcards and 4 ATCs--very convenient!

Just as I expected, I am loving using my new sewing machine for sewing paper! 


For the postcards, I sewed images cut from magazines and catalogs at the center, and am now trying to figure out what text I want to add and how.  Once I have them completed, I will share the results!

What's on YOUR worktable this Wednesday?  If you would like to share, or see others' tables, check out today's post at Stamping Ground.  What an amazing turn-out!

Those stitched papers look awesome. I am not a big fan of stitching, I'm not good at it - except for knitting I'm pretty useless at any kind of needlework (well, I can sew a button on).

Your desk is positively TIDY compared to mine right now - but I figure we have to destroy before we can create, right?

Thanks for stopping by dragonfly!!
