What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? #249

I didn’t intend to leave it a week between blog posts, but that’s the way of things around here lately. Another Wednesday, another desk hop around the world.

My desk is filled with some of the chaos I left behind, when I packed last Friday, to go on a crafty weekend in Herefordshire. That’s mostly been pushed to one side, to make room for the boxes I took with me, while I unpack them and put things back where they came from. Sort of.

In between the chatter, cake eating, drinking and laughter, lots of laughter, I managed fifteen cards and two Grandmother’s Flower Garden blocks. I’m happy with that.

What have been the fruits of your crafty labours this week?

I love the design of your cards! I seem to have lost my Pin button since I swapped lap tops so that's something else I have to rectify. See, you are special! You're the first Pin on my new puter! #46

I just LOVE those cards, Fiona! My craft space has been filled with preparations for my brother's 50th birthday party this weekend. I haven't been able to show anything on my blog because the party is a SURPRISE! :o) Can't wait to share about it next week...

Anyone who can make all those cards AND two quilt blocks while still having fun with friends, can work while talking. I love that. I've had friends who insisted I QUIT working while THEY talked. Not easy when I can actually look at them and make art, too.

Sorry I'm late visiting. It's been a busy life-gets-in-the-way type of week. Your cards are awesome, especially since I'm not a cardmaker. Happy very belated WOYWW from #7.

Hi Fiona I decided to have a late week snoop around some WOYWW blogs because I missed heaps this last week and have some time now. Love your cards and I see the quilted blocks and sounds like you had a fantastic weekend Cheers RobynO#24
