Greetings from a very cold, only 1°C this morning, but bright and sunny day here in Ayrshire. A perfect day for staying cosy indoors and just admiring the fabulous autumnal colour in the trees that can be seen from my craft room window. Which brings me to the point of this blog - my desk and our weekly visit to the Stamping Ground, to link up with our Head Desker, Julia; taking the opportunity to see what both she and a whole lot of other crafters have on their desks to today.
And here's the desk. It's all Christmas themed. A pile of new stash bought at the show at the SECC on Saturday has galvanized me into action ... there's nothing more stimulating than new stash, don't you think? There's the trees in the background, behind the mountain of card scraps. In front of that is a pile of card waiting to be used, well some of it anyway, in cards.
Here's another view ... one that shows all the stuff I keep on my desk most of the time.That's a bunch of toppers made using stencils, inks, waxes, and glitter paste. Messy, really messy, but an awful lot of fun!
That's the desk this week, only the one - the sewing table is little changed from last week.
I teased earlier with a mention of new stash and I'm sure you would want to see it so here's a few photos.

Our fellow desker, Annie, aka Wipso, of a Stitch In Time makes the most beautiful memory bears so when I spotted the pattern I was delighted and just had to buy it. I vowed that I wouldn't buy any more fabric but I just could not resist the pink floral - at only £2 it was a bargain. My daughter, charged to keep me on track, joked that she would let me off this time :)
Apologies to Julia but here's a few more photos from the SECC.
There's even a tear of joy rolling down the young woman’s cheek.
Once again I apologise to Julia for such a photo heavy post. I hope I'm forgiven this week. I'll try to be good next week.
Take care everyone and have a very happy WOY.
