Gosh I'm sure this last week went even more quickly than usual!!!
 Last Thursday we went up to Holmfirth and spent time with our son and family. Then on Saturday D.I.L. , her mum and I headed for Skipton and  Yarndale - for the weekend. Had a wonderful time there and it was a beautiful day weather wise and the area is stunning. I didn't actually buy a great deal as I am trying to use up yarn I have and finish things. Did buy a pattern and a little bit of yarn.Enjoyed looking though and I think I saw some of the bunting I contributed !!!! On Saturday evening the three of us went out for dinner and then D.I.L. went off to a party (unfortunately organised for same evening as a surprise party for a very good friend) her mum and I sat and enjoyed some wine and put the world to rights :-) On Sunday morning after a lovely continental breakfast we checked out of the hotel and went for a mooch around Skipton. Enjoyed a lovely scone, jam and pot of tea there !!!! We then set off back to Holmfirth , and then DH and I came home. Went to Sugar Craft class yesterday and have been looking after Phoebe and Ella at various points the last two days so not much paper crafting. Managed a bit of crochet and knitting while I was travelling.
Anyway must show you my desk or Julia will be telling me off. Pop along to her blog and join in the fun of WOYWW if you haven't done it before.

My desk has not changed much since last week. The tape gun still waiting for refill. The bag contains pieces for an Autumn wreath. To the left of that is the beautiful ATC I received from peggy . It is beautiful. Sorry photo not worthy. The box of chocs are for a gift as part of card making workshop - for which as yet I have done nothing :-(

So not a terribly interesting desk.
I will be around to view as many of your  desks as I can later.

For anyone interested just one/two photos from Yarndale. I didn't take many and the two of me with Lucy from Attic24 I am not going to show as I look just awful :-(

The Bunting !!!!!

Gorgeous Alpaca

Beautiful Angora Bunnies

A shopping street in Skipton. You can just see my D.I.L. trying to hide behind the hanging basket and her mum in the white and green.

Hope you've enjoyed. Sorry it's gone on a bit Julia.

  16. I just have one question for you - how do you manage to keep a box of chocs on your workdesk and not eat them? I could NOT do that :o) Look forward to seeing how the wreath turns out and I really LOVE that bunting WOW! :o) Annie #71
