Can I avoid politics?

I'm feeling a little sleepy today. My D, bless him, took it upon himself to start watching the election results at....3.30am! He did warn me, but I assumed (never assume!) he meant 6am, that I might have a guilt free luxurious coffee in bed (instead of my usual guilty one ;) )with a gardening magazine or something. No, I tossed & turned, flushed hot & worried weather my middlest was still on his 6th yr night out! (we had the phone call, got off lightly there with water bombs over the balcony ruining one or 2 school lunches, tsk, tsk, high jinks indeed - we'll have a word later) Did doze a bit, but feel like I've been to an all night party, without the party bit! The tv is red hot, too :) Just wait till Chealse week!


I found a bit of paper with stencil like cut outs, possibly from making a little collagraph. stuck 'em down & colored 'em in. Similar to one of my cards, ripped up tobacco waste, Bits of the papers I've been painting, an adaptation of an excersise on Quilting Arts Daily by BerylTaylor, love her stuff, & bits from my box.

Linda at Blue Eyed Girl (blog roll) said she visited a friend who was showing her desk. Ran out (on Wednesday) to see what mine was like. Don't know how the flower book got there! The painting table looks so neat (yes, that's neat for me) as I share it with D who uses it toframe  his pics using pristine white mounts, & I had to tidy it away. the plyers are there to open the tubes of paint, they're so old. One day I'll be able to invest in a new set of colors, meanwhile, I WILL use what i have!  Not ideal know, but it's a great new space we're learning to share. The desk, well, a door, really,  is ALL mine & altho not finished since the sort out, I love it..

Desk looks familiar, mine is like that too! Coffee in bed, what a luxury, with four dogs it's definitely NOT allowed. I can have a cup but then it had better be shoes on leashes out! Like that red bit with a griffon? Highlights nicely with the blues.....xox

Hi Emma, thanks for visiting my blog today. I have done no crafting for a whole week and it feels so weird! Will have to get back into next week as I have shops wanting stuff and a school fete to do. We took a walk round some lovely gardens today so look out for some pretty pictures on the blog soon. I know how much you like plants and flowers : )
Your desk looks so lovely and rustic and ripe for creativity.

Hah....now thats what I call a creative workspace! Love that little storage thingy with lots of squares. Are they rubber stamps in there?
Great collages.....I'm particularly partial to number 4 for some reason :-)
Hope middlest son is back safely - I remember those days. Now mine is 29 I'm not quite so bad...

Love your squares - I want to loosen up my work, and your work is inspiring. I have enjoyed looking through your blog too.

If my work table isn't messy, it means I haven't had any fun lately.
