On My Desk…

I really enjoy checking in with what I’m working on (or what I should be working on) at least once a week. Helps keep me “on task”. As a child “difficulty remaining on task” was often written in my academic file (yeah, that hasn’t so much changed).  I believe the pedagogues of the day failed to appreciate my multi-tasking nature…

Imagine my delight when I received this in the mail!


This is a rather fun and exciting project so I wanted to be sure to share with you! Tacha who bloggs at Hanies was looking for volunteers to test her new epattern, and I volunteered right away. She wields a needle with talent, and I have been devouring her posts on her various printing adventures (because I *so* want to take the plunge…but Santa needs to send me the screen printing kit!). And for you sporty-types out there, Tacha finished the NY Marathon in under 4 hours! So yeah, she’s cool.

Not only do I get to test her pattern, but she sent me everything I need to finish the project!


I’ll share the finished project soon! Maybe even by this weekend (let’s hope!).

  1. Hi Shelly,
    Yes, so much for not finishing it by this weekend! Not sure about amazing, maybe just crazy! It really didn’t take as long as I thought it would though, it seemed like lots of steps that would take a long time for us novices, but once you get started you get on a roll! Have fun! 🙂

  2. Hi Shelly!
    I’m glad some bloggers are still playing On My Desk, as I was having withdrawls already! I am Natasha’s other pattern tester and I got a package from her yesterday too! I am excited and nervous, as I have started but it is the first time I have done applique or quilting. I’m really looking forward to seeing how both our books turn out, as I’m sure Natasha is too! I imagine they will look really different in the different fabrics, but so cute. I don’t think I will have mine finished by this weekend! But I will keep stopping by to see how yours is going and if I manage to overcome my pregnancy lethargy I will post some more images of how I am going too! 🙂
    PS- I hope Santa gets you a screen printing kit! I just got a gocco and it is so cool.

  3. I’m curious to see what comes out too!

    I feel bad for younger people in that there are so many things to distract them. If they can’t stay on task, it is no wonder. I am a lot older (51) and we did not have comments like that. If we had something fun to do (like your cool project, which might only happen once in a childhood!) we would stay with it for days on end!!!
