Decoration for my work place

My current employer is very pet friendly. Poppy visited and stayed with me one Friday afternoon. She was so well behaved. She would give people love and kisses when they wanted to pet her, otherwise she settled down in her corner under my desk.
My work cubicle is rather bare. As it happened we have moved to a new expanded area yesterday. My new station looks the same but it will be my permanent home. I want to decorate it with handmade stuff.

Gathering up scraps and yarn ends.
Using an Embellish Knit to make I-cord…it is very fun to use.
My first butterfly...going to make leaves and flowers now.
Thank you for visiting, until next time, take care and have a great weekend.

Lace Doily

I finished the doily last week, washed and blocked it over the weekend.
It is about 19" (48cm) across. The pattern is from this Japanese book. I used size 10 cotton thread from Aunt Lydia's which is thicker than what the pattern asks for.
