What's On Your Workdesk, Wednesday?

Happy hump day and here we are with Wednesday rolling around again so I'm here to post my desk pics for the WOYWW 221 - if you'd like to join the fun pop over to Julia's blog and she'll explain.
It has been one of those weeks and I'm not even going to explain - one of those where you lay awake at night with plans running through your head ...never mind...but I'm still able to find time at my desk and dining table and enjoying time with our visitors.  Janice is sitting here today at her emails, we need a rest today as we went into town yesterday and walked our feet off - LOL, of course we loved it.  I've a few pics today as I have been busy....

 My desk - still untidy but it has been a productive week with 8 Christmas cards added to my pile - pile just to the top right of the laptop. I'm working on another Christmas card and need to make 2 birthday cards this coming week.

Then there's the's for our daughters nursery, she found it at the op shop and I've just finished covering the new foam cushions, hubby did a great job on the wooden frame. Second pic is the old cushions and I had to take a photo because the magpies have had a wonderful time gathering threads from the piece of hessian at the top.

These pics are of a jewelry roll  Janice asked me to make, so her necklaces and chains don't get all tangled when they're travelling.

Well must get this posted and check out what's been happening at other WOYWW desks, thank you for all your encouraging comments last week and - Enjoy Life.  Thanks for taking a peek

  3. You have been busy and shopping hope those feet feel better today with the rest. You have done a lovely job on the chair and so pleased to hear the maggies have benefited from the exercise. I so love magpies and hearing them in the mornings early.

    Happy WOYWW

  4. Hi Robyn, reupholstering is another great way of using stuff that others throw away. I haven't tried anything as complicated as yet. Lovely jewelry roll. Have a lovely week.

    My, what a busy lady! Margaret, (glitterandglue) has started on Christmas cards too - only way when we send so many is to start early. Great work on the chair. Are you and hubby starting a new business? Happy WOYWW day, John-W #35.

  7. Hi Robyn thanks for popping by. I am awake now ;-) You sound like you are having a hectic time but you are being very productive. Love the jewellery roll. Great photo of Mr Magpie recycling your chair before you did. Love it! Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 27 x

  8. The chair is looking perfect. Oh and I love the rolls, how clever. We have woodpeckers in the garden and I think I would prefer magpies, although they are terrible thieves...

    Happy WOYWW!

  20. Hi Robyn,

    Thank you for your comment on my blog. It really inspired me to get crafting again.

    I've recently made a crochet hook roll but had trouble keeping the lines of stitches straight (I'm not the best machine sewer) so am really impressed by your creation.


  21. Certainly wish I'd got some Christmas cards done. Thanks for visiting me (though I'm Anne not Sheena lol) Anne x #71

  22. WOW love your desk, and you have a lot of xmas cards done already well done, as for the chair, I am in AWE, fabulous hun, love your jewellery too...hugs, Avril#52

  23. Wow woman!! You HAVE been busy this week. That jewelry roll is awesome and that chair will be great when it's all finished and Jacalyn will love it! Well done!!

  24. Nice work on the jewelry traveler. I'm sure that will keep her chains from becoming tangled. Nice work on the chair, too. I'm sure it will be very comfortable on those nights when the baby is awake. Thank you for visiting my blog earlier. April #24
