WOYWW Long Time No Speak

It's been a while since I joined in with WOYWW and I have finally found time to play along.  My dad has been seriously ill for a month so I have been visiting but he is much improved now thankfully, so it is just taking me a while to get back into some kind of routine.  Where better to start than joining in with the weekly phenomena that is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, the brainchild of Julia.  Click HERE to be magically transported to Julia's place for all the details.
I took this picture at 10am this morning but have only just found the time to blog.  As usual I try to keep my desk as tidy as possible before my next crafting session, which I am hoping will be sometime later today, I can hope LOL.  The pot at the back of my desk is one my 10 year old daughter Laura made for me from clay, it is so heavy but it is one of those items I will treasure and is now used to store some of my button collection. The 12 x 12 paper on my desk is for my next challenge piece and the items on the left are for my next Altered Alice piece but I am still at the thinking stage, but these days the thinking stage takes a great deal longer LOL.
Thanks for stopping by, I am now off to try and hop around a few desks, something I have not done for 6 weeks.  Enjoy your week, Tracy x x

So glad your Dad is on the mend ... wow you look so tidy and organized.

RosC said...

Good to clear away between sessions. I reckon it helps the creative thinking to start on a 'clean page' so-to-speak. I like the storks on the window sill - very elegant.

Nice to hear your dad is improving - must have been a worrying time for you all.
Love your desk silhouetted against the window and wonder what that is in the centre with the three legs (kind of) - it always intrigues me and it looks gorgeous.
