What's On Your Workdesk, Wednesday #239

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all,
and may 2014 bring forth your creative talents and for me I'm hoping to step out of my comfort zone and try some new ideas.

As you can see not much going on at my desk today, I've been away for a month on holiday and left the room all neat and tidy  .... just ready for me to mess up again.
Hubby and I headed south 1st of Dec and took the car on the ferry to Tasmania where we enjoyed a fabulous tour of a really beautiful part of this world. Then we headed back to Victoria and spent Christmas with Stephens parents and my mum and extended family - lovely to catch up with them all. There were three new members of our family including our gorgeous 2 month old grand daughter (see pic below)
We've been relaxing today, recovering from our 3 day trip back home and I've just made myself a G&T and while tea cooks thought I'd add my first post for the year...if you're wondering what this post is all about please check Julias blog for WOYWW#239  where you'll discover a group of other crafty people sharing their lives and desks.
Wishing you every happiness for the new year and thank for taking a peek....
Four generations

  15. Belated Happy New Year Robyn! Love your new little grand daughter, great pic! Nice tidy desk too. I can't knit wither when it gets hot here in the summer, but right now is perfect knitting weather as we have 2ft of snow and almost record cold.
