This is my first post of the year, bringing me back into the fold and I hope our headmistress won't discipline me for being away so long without a note from a parent or guardian. Miss Julia makes us show and tell all about our desks each week and she shows the whole world whether we've been naughty or nice.
For the full register of evidence you should go over to the Stamping Ground and you'll see for yourself.
I've been away visiting family in Brighton then shortly after my return the German branch of my family came to visit bringing our new 4 month old little grandson here for his first visit to England along with his lovely 4 year old sister. We had a lovely time with them all but now I'm back in blogland to show my work desk and something of what I've been up to.
We celebrated DD2's 40th birthday whilst she was here and instead of a card I made her this heart, which includes vintage fabrics and buttons and a tiny bit of lace from my wedding dress circa 1966.
It certainly wasn't made on my workroom desk which hasn't been used for months.... here's how it looked after my last show and tell....
but I did tidy it up especially for the New Year for a fresh start and it has remained this way for a while, totally unused. Maybe I should rent it out!!!
I have totally moved away from paper, inks and stamps and I really enjoy using fabric and threads again.
A mass of dangling ribbons and charms
There's room on the linen at the back to write a message.
I hope I can manage to visit as many of you as possible and look forward to catching up.
