WOYWW #747

   

It is Wednesday 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 #747

SO here's my desk!


We are now back from Tasmania but not done much crafting since. You can see the last two pages of my altered diary on the table easel.


This was the previous page - you will find more about these pages on the post before this...


On my desk you can see the Colouring Book by Raquel Burillo Perez - I use this as collage paper.

We had a lovely time in Tasmania - no crafting done despite taking my cross-stitch. We did do a jigsaw at one of the holiday places - only to find it had one missing piece!




By the way the safety glasses in this picture at James Boag's brewery, were a requirement along with the high-vis to go around the working part of the brewery. We were offered 3 pots of beer to taste...


Probably the highlight of our trip was a boat ride from Coles Bay to Wineglass Bay and back. We saw a dozen whales, seals and dolphins. Although you cannot sail too close to the whales, when we anchored some whales swam up and were right along side!


To finish I want to show a picture from 5 years ago - why is it that I alkways have to work on that one small corner of my workdesk...


Wishing you a happy week...and hope to get around to you all this week...I did manage everyone last week, if late!!

Happy  WOYWW!
