What's On Your Work Desk? Wednesday #282

On my work desk this morning is a big box of embroidery threads with which I have started to stitch my textile artist trading card with.  I need to get this finished for the end of this week so I can send it off to it's new home.  I host an ATC - artist trading card swap every month for the gallery I volunteer at Art With A Heart and one of the players Ottilia-Bogdan Cormos this month has made an ATC on perspex and I loved it so much that I asked for a personal trade and she very kindly agreed and sent me this totally gorgeous ATC - the theme for the swap was Halloween or autumn.

Here is the ATC that Ottilia sent to me - isn't it gorgeous?  The colours are so vibrant.

And here is my desk as it stands today.

Want to know more about What's on your work desk Wednesday?  Then pop over to Julia's blog The Stamping Ground for the details and to see what the other artists are sharing on their desks.

Indeed that is a beautiful ATC card that you received. I love your embroidery. I haven't done any of that for years. Looking at yours makes me want to give it a go again. I love crewel and swedish weaving. Thanks for your visit today and a crafty week to you.

Happy Belated WOYWW. I used to be involved in lots of ATC swaps, and still go through my folders admiring them all. I have been a cross stitcher on and off for over 20 years, and now starting to do some embroidery. Ali x #40

I love that fabulous ATC, and your embroidered leaves are simply gorgeous! I love the tartan box too. What a lovely post.

Thanks for your visit and your kind words. I don't feel too bad about my slightly off the mark recent pieces - these things happen, don't they! I am going to revamp the woven paper one, and the birthday card has been sent and there's nothing I can do about that! Mr. Mojo was back with a vengeance tonight so I feel quite encouraged. I'm so glad you like my various projects.

Happy belated WOYWW,
