What's on your workdesk #149

Today I have my 'Workdesk' Drawer which I stuff all the things I'm working on downstairs in front of the TV.

What a mess! Really must sort and clear this so I can start all over again.

Then I have my real workdesk which hasn't changed much from other weeks except that there are a few more things on there.

My mending pile has grown. My bag (you know the one I was making for my February Monthly Challenge) is almost finished, no more knitting, just sewing up and adding the handles. It has taken forever.

I have discovered Zentangles. Now I may not be the best at this but I love it and I find them so calming, especially when my two boys are fighting and arguing!

This one started as a drawing around my hand

My Kirstue Allsop book is there (my lovely friend gave it to me before I left the UK) and I am looking into candle making.

Smallest was sitting at my desk earlier and was colouring in some Easter decorations that I forgot to give him, so they a still there and there is a box which had chocolates in from then esate Egg hunt we went on. (I didn't eat them I thought I might be able to use the box!).

That's me done. Go and see some messy and organised desks here courtesy of Julia's stamping ground.

Love the zentangles! I just finished my first and I look forward to trying them in various shapes rather than just a square!
Thanks for sharing!
Happy WOYWW!

I saw the zentangles before the knitting. Since I can't hold a pen long enough to make even a small one, I applaud your ability. Have a super WOYWW from # 9 this week!

Yep I spotted the zentangles first in the pic too! They are really striking, and such a good therapy! Well done with the knitting - it hasn't taken forever from where I sit!

Hey, I invented Zentangle - or I was born knowing it or something!! That is the only type of doodling I ever did. Obviously it was nowhere near as good as yours but now I know it has a name. I particularly like the chicken, everyone likes chickens! #99

Hey there - amazing zentangles, absolutely fantastic. Think you've discovered a real talent there! Love the chicken one too, also the mad clown chicken from the previous post. Usually clowns freak me out but not this one, it's fab!!!
I make simple over the shoulder bags that you could slip a laptop into or something and call them messenger bags but they're not posh ones or anything, just useful for using up scraps!
Hugs, LLJ #3 xx

I think Zentangles are all about the person drawing them really. It's so calming and relaxing. I love them too. Take care, enjoy WOYWW snooping! Love Zo xx 75
