WOYWW 88 and Proud Granny!

This is the first picture of my actual desk for a couple of weeks as many of you may know,I've been staying with my daughter awaiting the birth of Sebastian Jack. Now he's here (nine days late), I'm back at home. It's amazing how quickly mums return home from hospital with their newborns these days, Libby was only in hospital for about 6 hours.
Here I am having a first cuddle!
Back at home and faced with a whole bunch of cards to do, I couldn't seem to get going very well, as much of my time has been spent commenting on the fabulous number of cards from crafters who have entered my new challenge blog "Less is More" which I have just begun with my friend Mandi! We have been delighted with the response... if you haven't seen it, do take a look, we'd love to hear what you think!
I made a few Valentine cards yesterday, which I sold at my choir last night! This is one of them! You can see the wheel I used for the manuscript on my desk!
Join in with Julia and the rest of the WOYWWers to see the workdesks of the world. The link is on my sidebar!

  47. Gorgeous little fellow. The wheel is interesting. I haven't used one before, partly because I've not seen such a nice design. (I was going to say it makes a very pleasing note...but I caught myself.)
    Happy G-mothering.
