What's on your workdesk Wednesday #657


Wednesday again, so I am linking to the Stamping Ground

Follow the link to find out more about What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday and maybe join in... This is my post for WOYWW #657

So what's on my workdesk? 

This morning Carolyn Dube shared a video using 'Gelatos' on a Gelli Plate.

I had a go using the various art crayons in my stash - and this is the result - rather pale for my taste...

We came back from our little New Year trip - but not before seeing some more outside art...

These signs also amused us:

Since back... we have been doing Christmas jigsaws and then Sophie and I have started 'heat blankets'. The idea is to crochet a row a day (for a year!!) using a colour reflecting the temperature of the day. I wonder how far we will get!

Hope you are all well - stay safe...

With very best wishes for the New Year!

Happy WOYWW !!


  1. Love the idea of a heat blanket Susan and a great daily project for 2022. Look forward to seeing them at the end of the year. Happy New Year, stay safe and Happy WOYWW. Sarah #12

  2. the heat blanket idea is a good open - look forward to seeing that grow. will be an interesting experiment. Happy New Year and WoYWW Helen #3

  3. Happy New Year!
    Loads of knitting/crochet group friends made the heat blankets in past years, they always turn our interesting so will look forward to seeing how yours progresses. Weirdly a friend just linked me to this outdoor museum that is also pretty cool. You might enjoy the virtual visit as well!

    Happy 1st WOYWW of 2022!

  4. Happy New Year, Susan. These temperature blankets are quite popular, aren't they. My daughter did one last year - haven't seen the completed product yet! But she crocheted a small triangle each day... I look forward to seeing yours as it grows.
    Take care. God bless.

  6. Love the outdoor art\ and the Covid signs! Interesting idea the heat blanket, I am guessing you will be using a lot of reds and oranges. Happy New Year Angela #1

  7. Well I’ve never heard of heat blankets before, great idea - it’ll be interesting to see how they progress! I love the abstract swirly master boards, pretty colours and useful for so many projects. The covid sign made me laugh as did the colourful cows!!
    Happy 2022, may it be full of fun and crafting!

  8. A bit late tonight but always try to get round everyone if possible so I'm here to wish you Happy New Year. Pleased you reminded me about the Gelatos as mine have not seen the light of day for ages. Have a lovely woyww and a great week. Hugs, Angela x20x

  9. Ah, am thinking your heat blankets will be astonishing, what a great idea. I’m loving the outdoor art, so glad you decided to show the epic scale of that lizard! I can see why the gelato pulls are a bit pale for your taste, but they are nevertheless really nice aren’t they…pale and interesting as my Mum would say!
