WOYWW 442: Busy, Busy, Busy

It's a busy week, and I haven't spent as much time crafting in the shed as I would have liked.  Plenty of shed time, just rather a lot of data analysis, planning, marking and sorting for work.  I have been cramming the crafting in around the school work.  Eva made it over yesterday and we spent the morning crafting before heading off to Stockport and a journal meet up at the Hobbycraft there.  It's a once a month event (usually the third Tuesday) and they are a very friendly bunch.  Eva came with me for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed herself;  it was well worth a two hour drive back (13 miles stuck behind a tractor and trailer at 20mph).  
Anyway; on with the desk sharing which is the whole point of my Wednesday blog post each week.  For more details visit Julia (chief desker) over at the Stamping Ground and find more desks to visit.
My side of the desk shows the start of a Bon Voyage card for my nephew.  He is off to Canada tomorrow to train and then work as a ski instructor.  We won't see him again until March, but he will at least have family to visit, as my brother is only a few hour's drive away from where he will be based in BC.  I will be sharing the finished card on my blog tomorrow if anyone would like to see it then.
On the other side of the desk, Eva was getting into the groove with her parchment work using the groovi system.  It makes the line art side of parchment work really easy and you can then add white work and grid work in the traditional manner.  Happy WOYWW everyone;  I won't be visiting many desks today as I am going into work at lunchtime to do some learning walks and then attend a twilight session.  I will do my best to get round everyone by the weekend so I can catch up with everyone's goings on!  Thanks too, to all my regular visitors and new followers.
