WOYWW 253 Welcome to my world

Hi Peeps
Ok, so the last few days have been  totally crazy at fairy thoughts grotto.
I won't  bore you with most of it because you've come to see my desk ... right.
Julia says keep it brief because there are a lot of busy desks to visit and she's right, there are..... see the details  here
Anyway, My desk:

On the left some stash from Fridays  hobby show at the Excel in London.... a good day but took a while to get there! I love the Indian block print designs.... not sure when I will get time to use them though.

The brown roll thingy is bark fabric... check out these cute children's shoes made from it.

 On the right is the beginning of my next page for my Documented Life project, where we have to include our name, not sure where I am going with it.
In the middle is the little bit of actual crafting I did.... A card for  DD2 and SIL, they finally  moved into their new home at the weekend, it was a quick make, but I quite like it.

 Last, but definitely not least .... please meet my gorgeous new Grandson

Born Sunday morning weighting 8lb 13oz and 100% gorgeous.

 Thanks for visiting my desk..... If you leave your number I will visit you back.
Happy Wednesday

  14. Congratulations Janet! What a little cutie he is. The sight of him at the end of your post, made me forget what I was going to say about the goodies on your desk. He trumps the lot!

  15. Fiona's right - a newborn is a breathtakingly lovely distraction! I bet the shoes and that bark paper sparked the maker in you didn't it. I loe those stamps too - really nice..would prolly work great on fabric too. Yum.

  16. Oh, Janet, what a cutie he is..... no name yet!?? As we say up here in the North.... "He's a bonnie lad". I bet you've made him a few treasures already.

  17. Didn't expect to see a baby on anyone's workdesk today! ;-) Many congratulations!

    I just love those Indian print blocks too. I bought some [similar] a good few years ago and have never used them yet! I do have them on display though - so I suppose I get to enjoy them in a different way.
