What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday - Week 299

Hello Fellow WOYWWers

It's been a long time since I last joined in, but then it's been a long time since there was anything on my desk to reveal.
But today I've been pulling stuff out of stash to put together another scrapbook kit to work on over the next couple of weeks. From the photo at the front you can see the colour choice is based on red, gold/mustard yellow and black.
Here's where I have been spending most of my time in recent weeks - at the coffee table in front of the sofa. I started a little crochet chick a couple of weeks ago and haven't really made much headway and I've been planning where/how/when to sow seeds for cutting this year. Oh, and that's a cup of tomato soup ... I've been practically living on it for the last couple of months!

In yesterday's post I announced that I was going to the hairdresser's today and that there was going to be a big change.
 This is the before photo.

And this is the after shots ... a drastic change and although the EM thinks it's lovely I'm still not sure. However, it will be much easier to look after and that was the intention. 

It's probably going to take me the best part of the week to visit many of you. I'm still recuperating and that means I have to rest a lot, hence the long absence, but I'm getting there and my mojo seems to be making it's way back too :)
For now, it's goodbye from Bonnie who seems to have taken up almost permanent residence on my workdesk. 

Take care and stay safe.

Happy Crafting,

Hello Elizabeth,
Good to hear that you are feeling better. Your hair was so long and you have lovely color of hair too. The short hair is very nice. I'm going through a hair change myself. At 50, I decided not to color my hair anymore and just let nature take its course, the grey journey I will be going through. Thanks for sharing your before and after photos.
Have a lovely day and hope you will be a 100% soon.
Blessings : )

Don't even think about visitng and overdoing it..just stay behind the coffee table and recuperate fully. I notice that you're doing gold and red on the scrapping front and then...yellow and red for the crochet...I sense a cheerful theme and I love that. your new hair is word though, you may need to crochet a scarf!

Some beautiful colour ways there, Elizabeth, for your next pages, and a cute looking chick he is going to be. That's a very bold and brave transformation with your hair - love the new look - and think how easy it will be when you get up - a quick comb and run!!!
Take care. God bless.

It looks wonderful! So glad to see you around again - welcome back. I hope that means you're feeling much better, and can enjoy your new project. Have a great week, Chris # 21

Wow Elizabeth, what a transformation! Your lovely kitty looks totally unfazed by the whole thing. I have also transformed my hair a couple of days ago but no photos yet.

Thank you for your lovely comment. I am feeling a bit better about things today but was a total wreck yesterday. No date for re-admission yet but I hope it will be next week asap. I just want this thing over and done with now.

Happy belated WOYWW,
