Hi there I'm back ( well that's if you realised I was not here last week :-) ) DH and I had a wonderful week away in Cornwall. Despite the weather not being brill elsewhere we had great weather apart from one day. We stayed in most of that day, got dressed very late, wandered to the shops for some delish food for dinner and I crafted  knitting/crochet !!!! Every other day we were out enjoying the scenery and walking etc etc. The holiday was much needed and I really chilled out and felt so much better!!!! Called in on my Mum on way back and it was lovely to see her so much brighter and doing more just six weeks after having her Pacemaker. Hospital very pleased with her.
Well we came back on Sat teatime, on Sunday joined family for my granddaughters joint birthday party and then had Phoebe yesterday afternoon, Sugarcraft this morning and then Phoebe and later Ella this pm. Tomorrow have hair app. Thursday knitting group and visiting my friend Thurs pm. Why I am I telling you all this - well on Saturday it is the card workshop I am holding - there are 12 ladies attending and I have done no real prep yet !!!! HELP. Was going to take stuff with me but decided instead to take my knitting and crochet. Ooopsss. It will get done!!!

Anyway to my desk - what's on it??? Well the crochet and knitting mentioned previously. Lemon and white - very simple baby blanket. To the right a rainbow scarf for my GS - as requested by him :-) and what is supposed to be a teddy bear. We made them this morning at Sugarcraft but he's not quite right and I will need to tweak him a bit- ears not right for a start!!!

rest of my desk - various bits and pieces needed for the workshop that I managed to sort before I went away and need to do something with!!!!! Not the pasta book though - just moved that from bookshelf trying to get to something else :-)

If you'd like to know why I am showing you my desk then pop over to Julia's Blog and join in!!!

To finish thought I'd just share the view from  lounge/patio of our holiday cottage (well converted barn) Bye for now x


  1. So glad to hear you had a great break away and that your mum is making a good recovery. Really hope your workshop goes well and you get all the prepping done in time :-)

  9. Well we quite like your bear, but maybe a weeny tweak around the ears, but then what bear is perfect ( Podgy says he is) your holiday sounds lovely, and the view is fantastic, lucky you. Thanks for your earlier visit.

  10. Your bear is gorgeous. I always envy peeps who can make these sugar creatures. So clever!
    Isn't Cornwall wonderful at this time of year? Hubby and I were there two years ago at this time and it was very refreshing.

A holiday in Cornwall, that's a dream vacation, lovely, you are so busy, I got tired just reading it LOL, Boy do I envy people who can knit, you blanket and scarf are wonderful, I like the bear just like he is, he's a little darling.

  15. Hi Ann
    it sounds like you and DH had a wonderful holiday and it sounds like it was very much needed by you. You choose a wonderful place in our country to go to for a holiday everything moves at a slower pace there and you can take time to relax.
    Loving all your little makes

  16. Oh wow what a view - I could chill out nicely there!! x Jo

  17. Thanks for the visit earlier.
    Your holiday sound busy, but restful, which is the best kind. I didn't even notice the ears until you drew my attention to them, but still can't see what is so wrong with them.
    Have a great week

  18. Hi Anne,

    What a pretty yellow and white baby blanket. It sounds like you've had a wonderful time. Whew, your week has been quite busy. I'm sure the class will go perfectly on Saturday!

    I love the view from your renovated barn (cottage). I be it's perfect!!

    Thank you for visiting me already!
    Peace, Kay (43)

  20. Hi Anne, your holiday sounds wonderful and oh my that view!!! Your desk looks very organised, mine is in complete chaos. I am going to follow you link and hopefully view some more work spaces! Sarah xo

  21. Sounds like you've had a fab time away and a busy time since you got back! The packs for the workshop will get done....just breathe! Love the teddy, he looks great to me. Hugs. Pam#68

  22. I am so jealous of you, Anne. I love Cornwall but I had to cancel my holiday there this year. One way or another (caravan, hotel or cottage), I am determined to get there for my fix of rocks and sea next year. I have also booked seats for two more concerts early next year - Richard Digance and Lindesfarne. Thank you for your visit this week and I hope your workshop goes well. xx Maggie #4

  23. That stunning photo of bliss and serenity just blasted whatever else you said right out of my head, Anne!! Seriously! How in the world do you ever leave such a place?! I can see why you felt rejuvenated afterwards!

    I'm glad you just took along what you wanted to do. Life's too short and all that! And, as you say, it will get done! Have a fun workshop! Wish I could be there!! Happy Belated WOYWW and thanks for coming by to visit me! Have a wonderful week! Hugs, Darnell #57

  24. Sounds like you had a great time away. So glad to hear your Mom is doing well after her pacemaker being 'installed'. :-) I hope your class went well. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. April #61
