Woyww #165 - unembellished chicken and a flat monkey head

I am still on holiday, therefore my crafting table is really just a bag, a coffee table, an outside table and occasionally a beach (although sand in the wool is rather annoying!).

So today, here is my WORKDESK - which is a flat rock next to the lake -

The present I was working on, still needs a few embellishments. Some lovely retro pink wool (I love how this wool pulls out from the middle so I don't have to lose the label and it keeps the wool together. Genius!

The start of my neice's monkey (his head, which I realised in this shot, I forgot to fill it!) and my crochet hook.

My Smash Book with a hasily scribbled pattern from Annaboo's House.

A collection of sticks and stones my lovely boys brought to my 'table' to make it look better.

I am having a lovely relaxing time and haven't had too much time for crafting. I have been doing a lot of reading though which is something I don't normally get to do. I finished the book I came with (The Help - very good) and I finished another book Moo left me (One Moment, One Morning) within about three days.

So I guess I will have to finish my crafting now and try and get the sand out of this monkey and stuff his head!

Go and have a look at Julia's blog and see what everyone else is doing this Wednesday.

What an interesting beach with that lovely pier or is it a harbour wall in the distance. Great photo to share with us.

That wins the award for Most Scenic Workdesk this week - and the one to cause most jealousy. We'd all like to be there to sit next to Chicken, lol! Your boys have bought you some beautiful desk embellishments - they obviously take after you!!
Hugs, LLJ #1 xx

Now that does look incredibly inviting, much better than the view from my desk at work! I think I'd put down a blanket and take a nap. Love how the chikkin is coming along and I hope you get the sand out of the sock monkey!

Great photo - love your desk this week and those are cute little knitteds. I read The Help last year and couldn't put it down - very revealing of what it was like in a certain time and certain place. I believe there is now a film of it but, as yet, not seen it. Hope you are still enjoying being where you are for the weekend. Elizabeth x #63
