WOYWW 217

Hello Everbody,

Well - it's Wednesday again and here I am playing in What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday or WOYWW #217. That means it's time to blog surf around the World and have a peak at what art others are doing on their desks. If you want to find out about this or join in go to Julia's blog at STAMPING GROUND.

This week I am showing you a Pergamano frame that I have just finished.
This definitely makes my eyes bad and I end up going through four different pairs of glasses by the end of the day  they get stronger each time  !!! LoL






In the background are some of my ' Back to School' tickets I am making for a Swap :-D
Thank you for visiting - now I'm off round the world for my weekly 'fix'  :-D  Much LUV xxxxxxxxxxxx

Another desker was showcasing Pergamano earlier and it looked gorgeous. I am intrigued. This looks absolutely exquisite. How is it done? Julie Ann #12

Maisie Moonshine said...

Cripes- I can see why you're suffering with bad eyes! What a fantastic frame - beautiful! Love your tickets too. Have a great week. MMx #42

Lynn Holland said...

Gosh that looks complicated no wonder you need strong glasses

House of Bears said...

Wow, that's really intricate. How very clever you are. We think it would get our fur in a twist trying that.

Hugs from the bears @#78

glitterandglue said...

Thanks for visiting already - your pergamano is lovely. Yes, hard on the eyes. I, too, have to swap glasses every now and then - and use a large magnifying day light!!! Must be getting old or something.
Have a great week.

Uniflame said...

Thanks for visiting me! I like the backgrounds you made. I can't wait to see the finished ones :) Uniflame - 81

Uniflame said...

And I am not reading right, haha. I thought those were background frames. What are you going to use them for?

sandra de said...

The detail in the frame is amazing. You are lucky to still have vision after finishing all that work. Incredibly beautiful.

Shoshi said...

Goodness, Ike, that's absolutely amazing! It looks like Honiton lace. Soo beautiful, and I'm not surprised it was doing your eyes in. I've never tried Pergamano - it's gorgeous.

Thanks for your lovely comment - yes, it's all very exciting. We are anticipating moving on Tues. 27th Aug. now, if the removal firm isn't booked up. We've got a very tight schedule because we've got to work round Mum coming down on 28th.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #66

Hi for WOYWW - what a beautiful frame - pergamano is way too much for me I think... such tiny detail looks brilliant though - have a great week - Mxx #84

Uuna said...

My name is Cindy said...

OMG! That is amazing, I would never be able to do that! Sucks getting old with the eyesight doesn't it? I have to rotate what I do - reading is the worst - I have no trouble reading but if I read for too long afterwards can't see to do anything else!! Thanks for the earlier visit and happy WOYWW Cindy

Bernice said...

Wow - this is fantastic - though it would make my eyes water just thinking about it! - I'm not surprised you had to keep changing to stronger glasses!

Lynn McAuley said...

Such precision on this amazing frame, Ike! I know what you mean about the glasses. I keep a tub full on top of my scrape bins and swap out as needed!

Thanks for inviting to see what you are up to!! And thanks for your visit!

Lynda Norton said...

Looks like you are going to have to tell us more about the frame, we love it but dont understand it:)
Must also get more glasses, I only have 2 pair!

Krisha said...

You have my deepest admiration for the Pergamanto lace. I tired it ONCE, OMGosh! my eyes were MUCH better then, can't imagine trying it now...LOL
It is a stunning frame!!!
Krisha #108

Belinda Basson said...

Thanks for visiting my desk already! Now my eyes would be bad after making something like this! WOW it is stunning and you must have serious patience #85

Mistys Mum said...

Ooh your parchment is beautiful - I don't do so much these days as I used to.
Thank you for visiting my workdesk & leaving a comment. I think you were a little mislead on the embossing folders - they are not A3 - but there 3 folders there. Sorry about that confusion. #21

jill said...

lovely frame . Thanks for stopping by earlier. The big pink thing on my desk is my Crop o Dail made by We 'R' Memory keepers. It's used for making holes on paper & seting eyelets. Check out youtube for more info. I love mine. Jill #99

Bridget Larsen said...

oh my goodness I have always admired pergamano from a distance, yours is exquisite

Ali H said...

Your frame is exquisite -so detailed no wonder that you need your specs! Thanks for calling by earlier! Ali#101

pearshapedcrafting said...

I thought this was lace! I've always envied folk with the patience to do pergamano, although I'm sure it must be tough on the eyes, I bet you need lots of breaks! Now..Hugh Jackman - fantastic, just that I do not like 3D - mind you Hugh made it bearable, Thanks for visiting, Chris46

Danie May said...

Thanks for visiting me earlier and leaving your kind comment. Loving your gorgeous frame. I love the intricacy of this type of papercraft but so don't have the patience or coordination to do something so detailed. Loving your cute little tickets too! Happy WOYWW! Danie #25

VonnyK said...

That frame is incredible, I would go insane doing that. You have a lot of patience and I can see how your eyes would be bad.
Have a great week.

Gita said...

Is that tatting or something? It's beautiful!! My eyes are starting to go too. I find myself needing reading glasses or using my prescription bifocals more often. i initially needed to see far away - but wasn't that far off 20/20 but what a difference! Brigita #91

voodoo vixen said...

Fabulous pergamon frame you have created... I can imgine why the glasses had to go up in strength! Annette #1 for the first time in 4 years!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

This is an amazing frame. What a beautiful piece. I don't even own four pair of glasses, so that made me smile when I read it. I can understand, though.

Loved the tickets. Clever and cute. Happy belated WOYWW from #2.

Annie said...

I'm a bit late visiting this week....I had a really manic day yesterday with my sewing. Thought I'd call in before today became the same!
You must have a lot of patience...your frame is amazing.

MaggieC said...

Beautiful frame, and such a lot of work in it. I have not done any for a while, but I do use a lightbox, which makes things easier on the eyes. Thank you for your visit this week. The guillotine has a reasonable safety protection, but it is just so accurate. I would not want to be without it now. Hope you have a good week. xx Maggie #48

Darnell J Knauss said...

This is utterly impressive!! If you can read this, I wish you a Happy Belated WOYWW! Enjoy the rest of your week!! Darnell #118

Queen Lightwell said...

That is a gorgeous frame! Such detail! No wonder the glasses must get stronger as the day wears on. :) I'm running fairly late but still here before the next one to say thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment already. :) Deeyll
