Wednesday Worktable - Wednesday 4th November - Midori Style and Bunting!

Hello Deskers!  This is an infrequent contribution to WOYWW (What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday), over at Julia's Stamping Ground. Each Wednesday, Julia invites fellow crafters and bloggers to show a photo or two of their worktables, and explain what they've been doing.

I don't seem to get much time for working in my studio.  It's just been mad, this last few months (actually, make that years!).  Anyway, "stuff" does happen... sometimes.  So, just to prove it, here are a couple of photos to show something I have just finished (but it's an ongoing project!) and also what I'm currently working on:

Just completed and to be added to my online shop as soon as... 

A Leather Notebook Cover, with matching Pen Case 

Inspired by the popular Midori notebooks with covers and a pencil-case I made for my son's birthday last year. The nice thing about them is that I can make any size or shape and in any colour of leather that I can get!  

So, those are just completed and ready for better photos and to be offered for sale.  

Currently this is what's on my desk: 

Experiments and planning for a Commission.  

A lady who runs a student housing agency, found this post on my blog, where I showed a little string of mini bunting.  She has asked me to make her two long strings of House Bunting, to hang in her office.  These houses are 6" tall, so they're considerably larger than the mini bunting I made before. We've just agreed on what she wants and I'm about to start making the "real" bunting.  They will each be six feet long when completed.  It's great fun!

Thank you for reading.  I hope you've enjoyed visiting today.  Feel free to browse my blog, but once you're finished, do go back to Julia's Stamping Ground, to see what everyone else is doing today.


  1. I've got a bit of a thing for little houses, so the house bunting made me smile! Your notebook is rather smart, isn't it?

  2. The little houses look beautiful! I'm curious about the finished bunting!

    Greetings, Sofie #11

  3. What a super fun commission! I love how those little houses are coming on. Don't forget to photograph the finished product! I'd love to see it.
    Have a good week,

  4. Super fun house bunting Lizzie and beautiful leather book cover and case...very nice. Have a lovely week Cheers RobynO#28

  5. Good to see you back Lizzie, I have been a bit lacking in visiting blogs so maybe you have been posting and I've missed them. Great notebook and pen case. I have a wonderful stock of leather now. My mother's neighbour threw out their good-as-new sofa so much to their bemusement I asked if I could strip the leather! I have enough to last me years! I wonder if I can dye it? Something to experiment with.
    I love the bunting - a commission like that would make me very happy. What fun to make!!!

  6. Me again! Thank yu for the incredibly useful info re the BPPV. I will investigate getting an osteopath appt as my neck and shoulders are very stiff indeed. Also I will be going back to the docs as I also have constant tinnitus. I hate visiting the doc but am going to be sensible about this!

  7. That leather looks so soft. Do show the house bunting when you are finished - the templates you've made look so much fun

  8. What beautiful work. Those books look amazing.Take care Zo xx 32

  9. Hoping those midori covers and pretty pencil case do really well for you :). And what a great commission! Little houses bunting sounds very jolly indeed.

  10. Nice work With the bunting, what a fun idea! A commission like that is reall nice. Love the Mindoro too...the leather cover will certainly go a long way to help with the the rigours of use that these books undergo, and still look good.


I love to read your comments!
