What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 767

 Already, my weekend of indulgence is over and it is from there that I thought you may like to see my desk. A share of the kitchen table, actually. Vey comfortable cottage and lots of space for us five. 
My space is actually clear! I'd just finished a page and was tidying up in between so that my mess didn't encroach on other spaces. My trusty cutter is at left of my space, in a sharing position. As always, we had a lot of fun and I made a goodly bunch of LOs which is very pleasing. We all did, actually. Also, of pleasing-ness to me is that I am using up stash, and because LollyScrapper shared her YouTube find about using up patterned scraps, I'm actually working through that lot too, and that is satisfying! 
My at-home desk isn't quite empty - I still have the easter decorations awaiting attention, but if it continues to rain and be grizzly, then completion is likely! However, I have a morning out of the house first, so please don't eat all the biscuits before I get back!

Your away desk would work for me! Near food and coffee, I good! Using up stash is always a good thing! I'm getting ready to compost my old stash and start anew!

Hope you had a great morning out and returned to find at least one cookie!

Looks like a fun adventure. Here in Iowa there are a few smaller closed churches people have bought and made for Quilting weekends. Choir offers single beds for overnight stays and an area for quick breakfast/lunch etc.
I'd love to do this only with paper art.... Happy Valentines Day 💕💕💕

I didn't get to comment from my bed this AM as your blog showed up really oddly on the iPad. No matter here I am now! Looks like you had a great time. oh I do recall the crops and how fun they were. Such a lovely group of ladies. And I can't wait to see the reveal of some layouts. Maybe the upcoming wedding will be the thing that finally gets me scrapping again, who knows?
Happy WOYWW so Ready, set, hop!

Hi Jan, me again. With masking fluid, put a small blob somewhere eg on scrap paper then transfer it in little dots or lines to your painting with something pointed, not a brush, as it will ruin it. After your paint has dried, rub it off with a hard rubber, then you leave the areas white or paint over them with a different colour!

Kyla said...

Ooh very productive, i may have to search out that youtube video as i bet its satisfying using up all those patterned scraps too.
Sorry, biccies all gone ;-)

Christine said...

Good morning, Miss Julia.
Happy Valentine's Day!

Sounds like you had a lot of fun with the coven last weekend. I don't understand the 'tidy as you go' thing? But I do understand wanting to no take over the entire table. LOL

Hugs & Creative Blessings!
