416 8 year anniversary WOYWW

Congrats Julia for such a happy achievement .  It is terrific fun to see what people do , to find there are people who are messy like me and there are neat nicks.  The latter, alas, were always held up as model by everyone from mother, teachers and bosses.  Well maybe one nun who offered the observation that "outta sight was out of mind!!!!"  A philosophy I subscribe to.

Yesterday I was totally confused and thought it was Wednesday!!! wondered all day where this blog was.  I worried too after the awful event in Manchester.  My roots run back to that great city where the people are so kind.  My heart goes out to all of you who are grieving and hurting.

This is written before I read Julie's post or anyone else.  Just know you are all in my heart.

Here is my desk,

My room is like this after furious search for lost journal.

This week worked on a Kate crane class on patchwork.  I saw it more as cray quilting.

I enjoyed doing it so much I made a pocket for my journal using the technique.

well that is it for today.

  8. Happy 8th Anniversary! I Hate when those pesky journals sneak away! I have 2 currently AWOL. Your patchwork piece came out great! I'm still trying to get the small piece done before we do the large piece this week. Have a great week.

  9. I wanted to stop by and thank you for the beautiful comment you left on the passing of my friend. It was so thoughtful of you. I'm sorry I didn't get back to thank you until now.

    I really adore that journal and the page that has so much color and patterns.

    Sorry I'm late in visiting. I spent today with my friend's children before they leave for CA early tomorrow morning, so had to be away from the computer. Happy 8th Anniversary from # 1.

  10. I love your patchwork journal page! And the stencil cats - just up my alley! Hope you find your lost journal (or is that it on the table?). I also have that stencil you have on your table! Thanks for your visit, Inky says "thank you!", but I know she thinks she's gorgeous too! Happy 8th WOYWW anniversary! Lindart #51

  11. Loving the patchwork mixed media piece. I imagine it would lend itself to so many techniques. Thanks for visiting me earlier and have a lovely week.

  13. I didn't have acces to a computer last couple of days so I'm very, VERY late visiting desks and celebrating the 8th anniversary... anyway, here I am! I love the patchwork-page... it looks fun and bright! Thanks for visiting my blog last week, it's so nice to be part of this lovely group of crafters. Hooray, hooray and on to another year of 'desking' and crafting! Hug from Holland, Marit #29
