WOYWDW??? - a ha - not "What" but "Where" is my Workdesk????

This is a picture of where my desk use to be in the front room. Please excuse the stuff!
Ok now can you guess where I have moved my work desk (& stash) too???
You will never guess!!!
You will think I am crazy too!!
my new craft room is now
No joke!! here's pictures
The knitted clown & cowboy are on top of the toilet (the lid is obviously shut!!)
My knitting & dirty washing!! Is IN the bath!!
You can just see my desk on the right & corner of bath on the left
That is pictures of the whole room totally rammed full of my craft stuff!!
Have I gone crazy? Probably!!
As you may already know I live in a static caravan & we have a shower room, seperate toilet & then a bathroom with a second toilet. Because of the lack of space the bathroom was just a constant dumping ground for stuff. So I shuffled everything around & moved myself into here instead. Obviously I can't use my bath, but then I couldn't use it before either :-( oh well its worth it to have a whole craft room to myself!
I will of course be having showers now instead - I am not dirty!!

Anyways now I have shocked you all I am off to shoot & get some clothes on because I'm going to the hospital a bit early than planned for my first appointment with the Nurse in the head ache clinic.
I will be back later with some crafting I did yesterday (my first day in my new room!) & to let you know about my hospital appt. 
Please also note it is CFS/ME awareness day!
To help promote awareness please join in my blog candy & advertise for me
Sees you later
Oh almost forgot!! If you want to join in with WOYWDW then pop over to Julia's blog Stamping Ground

Thanks for the peek at your craft space. Way to put your candy on my blog. Hope you get on ok at the hospital. Take care Kathleen xx
You obviously have a 'posh' static van, I only have a shower in mine! Great idea to use the space and I can see you have made some great creations since settling in in there! I love the knitted figures too! Hope all goes well for you at the hospital. Have a great week. Tracey x
That's got to be one of the most unusual crafting places I've ever seen Helen, it's amazing. Love your knitted characters - I've got a scarecrow somewhere, I'll try to find a piccie for you!

Nicki, xx

When my ME was at it's worse ... the best I could manage was a shower too so I think you should be congratulated on a very clever use of space X

How I price my toys ....

.....I thought I would share with you today how I price my knitted Monsters.
I spent a long time researching how to price them and looking at how much other people charge for their toys (which are often not CE tested which they should be!)
Pricing ingredients: Cost of the products: wool, stuffing Use of equipment & other: Knitting needles, scissors, electricity for lights  My time: Designing the toy, knitting the toy, testing the toy CE Test: Making sure my toy is to CE standards
Now you have to decided how much you want to pay yourself an hour and any extra profit
How much do you get paid an hour? Shall we say minimum wage £7.50 per hour
The largest toy I make is Pookiechu (the pink one) she takes me 16 hours to make 16 x 7.50 = 120
so that makes Pookiechu £120 before I've even added on the cost of any wool etc!
I therefore decided to pay myself a lot less and she became £65 However even though I know you are paying for a quality toy made with quality products and to the CE stand…
