It's my mess and I like it, well that's my excuse:-)))
Can you see my lickle iron?
Hop over to Julias blog to visit more work desks.

Close up of the Spellbinders album I made at one of their workshops.
I made a few changes. I added book rings instead of the ribbons and some more embellishments.
Next I have to decide on some photos.
Inside the album
Still collecting Vintage Sewing items for my dresser. I was too busy prepping for Japan Day to work on it
A peek at one corner of the room where I tipped stuff out to sort. I am trying to find some Fabric Paper I made to finish a swap piece. It is still hiding from me.
My craft bags are packed as I am off to stay with a crafting friend for a few days.

I have landed in the Midlands and messed up my friend Leo's dining table. LOL. Too much fun

Japan Day October 17th

Today Jo and I attended The Japan Day as vendors at The Midland Hotel Manchester.
We had a couple of tables booked. Jo worked hard on Make and Takes which proved extremely popular. We were busy all day and it was great to meet up with friends from some of the Yahoo lists and others from Blog Land. I received a lovely post it note wall hanging from LizzyBobs. Thanks again.
I managed to escape to take the following photos so ENJOY.
(Photos 1 and 2 are of our tables) hop over to Jo's Blog to see more

It's Japan day on Sunday and I am halfway through an Origami book using some of our new Oriental stamps.
I have lots to do packing items for the event and I am not getting anywhere fast because I had food poisoning at the weekend. I spent 4 hours in A and E in hospital in Liverpool:-(((

The new images just in front of my book. They are hand drawn by my good friend Jo

Some of the rubber I have been packing and pricing among other things. I haven't had time to do anything else and being ill hasn't helped so no work on my mini dresser yet but I am collecting my items together.

Here I am still making ATC's to swap at The Port Sunny show on Saturday.
I did a little work on the mini dresser and decided to go with a Vintage Sewing theme.
The little teacup is to make a pin cushion.

Another view of the mini dresser. I added some Rusty Hinge to the dresser but it doesn't show up.
I am also looking for something unusual for a drawer handle that is sewing related.
I will have more time after the show to search my stash.
