Also on the work desk is a few post cards. What, with stamps they cost me one pound each! I feel old right now, it used to be so cheap to send a post card! Does anyone still send postcards? One of the cards is going home to the dear OH and will end up in a scrapbook but the other is to my Grandma as she loves Torquay too....it must be the hills. Reminds us of home!
Thanks for popping in to say "Hello" today. Go take a tour of the world's crafty desks over at Julia's

Jane Rollason came to demonstrate a lovely paper piecing technique to make a curved Log Cabin design.
here. I also thought I would share some of my friend's blocks which are much bolder, they really show of the curved design.
My desk this morning......what no paper! I attended a great workshop at the weekend with Jane Rollason to make a curved log cabin design. It uses a paper foundation pieced method. I decided to expand on a fabric scrapbook layout that I was working on last month. I've used my lovely sea and sand fabric to make the small curved log cabins. If you like a have a peek at other's creative places, please share you work desk over on Julie's blog.

I'm thoroughly enjoying my Easter break. I've completed another LO! A big thanks to this month's Scrapbook Magazine, and the free Fancy Pants paper. I copied the design on the front cover to show off a lovely picture of my niece. I loved the papers that much that I couldn't stop! The next LO is my family and I last year enjoying the Royal Wedding street party in Skegness. Can't believe its nearly a year ago now!

I couldn't resist showing you my workdesk today. I am having a lovely Easter break at my in laws caravan on the East coast.
I've love magazines so I treated myself to 4, most of them have free stamps or papers with so well worth it! I'm having a play this morning with some lovely Debbie Moore travel stamps, (I'm still in my jammies!)
How nice was the UK weather on Bank Holiday Monday.....perfect for crafting! I bought quite a stash of crafting stuff with me as you can see! My OH is a fishermen, so I feel better knowing he brought more gear than me! I posted twice yesterday, by accident I found I could email by posts to Blogger....modern technology hey!
The sun is shining today so I think we will venture to the beach with the dogs. I will check back later to see all you workdesks x

Here's another finished layout from Shimelle's monthly class on UK Scrappers. This one tells the story of one of our fosters dogs who stayed over Christmas last year. I really enjoyed making this page as I love to use my stamps on a layout!
I am really impressed, I have learnt how to blog using my mobile phone! Will share tomorrow what is on my caravan work desk!

Jennie Dobson's Wonderful Waves workshop. It was great we got to experiment with simple wavy seam constructions to re-interpret traditional patchwork designs.
We began with an easy method for cutting wavy seams. The wavy patchwork added a subtle new quality to the background of an idea I was working on some time ago. Next we applied this method to traditional pieced block designs, lending them a windswept look, which worked well with this beach themed project.
