What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday - Week 638

Hello Everyone

A very late hello it is too. Why? We've been on a trip to town. Our first in many months and it will also be our last for many more. We're exhausted. Alan's health is improving but he's still got a way to go yet. It didn't help that I've been poorly most of this last week. And that means my workdesk is much as it was last Wednesday. 

As can clearly be seen in this pic. I've turned the photo and its layers over to protect it from the sunlight - wouldn't do to have it fade and curl up in the heat. 

I'm hoping to get back to scrapping soon. With the weather being so good yesterday, I did get out into the garden to pick a few of these blackberries. 

We usually cut back any brambles shoots that pop through from neighbouring gardens but this year they've left to do their thing. They will go well in a crumble with the apples I've picked from our trees.

Butter wouldn't melt! But Silver is as mischievous as ever. And she's decided this blanket was crocheted just for her. 

And finally, some funnies that I hope you will enjoy. 

First, a couple that are cat related.

And now, one for all the sewists among us. 

That's all from me this week. To see what's on many more workdesk do pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground. 

As usual, many thanks for all the lovely comments received last week. I will endeavour to visit as many desks as possible over the week. 

Take care,

I’m sorry you’ve felt rough this week but amcheered by the news of Alan’s recovery, slow though it is. Take your time and craft when you feel like it, no rules here! The funnies made me laugh, esp the Masked Singer 😁

There are some clever folks about - that Masked Singer is priceless. Love the cat funnies too but the MS is clever thinking.
Sorry you have not been well this past week but glad to hear that Alan is getting, even if slowly, better.
As for your little fur baby, well, that is cute if ever I saw it.
Hugs and get well soon

The funnies are definitely smile worthy, love them. We went into town a couple of weeks ago as we needed to visit the bank and I really didn't feel comfortable with it so not sure when we'll go again, people just seemed to be ignoring the need to shop safely. How the government ever thought people would use their common sense I cannot imagine. I do hope you are both feeling better soon and you are in the mood for some crafting but for now just take it easy. Sending gentle hugs and a happy belated woyww, Angela x9x

I am pretty late visiting I am afraid. Hoping you are feeling better.
Those blackberries look lush!
The funnies amused me...
Happy WOYWW!

Sorry to hear you've not been well this week, but glad to hear that Alan is slowly improving. I do love blackberry and apple crumble so enjoy yours if you get enough blackberries for it. I had to laugh at the masked singer! Happy belated WOYWW. Take care and stay safe. With love & God Bless, Caro xxx (#15)
