WOYWW 259--Busy Bee Back in Business

Good morning to all the lovely deskers of the world. If you don't know what a desker is - visit the lovely Julia right here. She is host of What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday.

I took this photo, mid-creative-flow. Things were moving fast. My back is back in business. Woo hoo! A week of ice packs and rest and exercise did the trick. So now I'm catching up on tag and card making - so fun. I found a cross-stitch tag I designed last year, and I want to make another one and chart it. I'm playing with stamps, and proud of myself for finding some acrylic blocks marked down at JoAnns for fifty cents. I bought several, they are so handy to have. Over on a chair is my knitting - still knitting hearts.

DD and I loved the season finale of Mr. Selfridge. Now it's time to catch up on Call the Midwife while I color some bees. Oooh...my other desk is the garden. I have to share my lettuce crib with you. Hubby built it, and it's doing great. Have a wonderful week!

  4. I'm coming round yours for a salad! That lettuce looks wonderful, mine are coming on too. In fact, after a week of warm sun then rain, everything's grown massively. The whole countryside around here is bursting with green, frothy white blossom in the hedgerows and birds singing...England at its best!
    Short one today, I'm off food shopping for the Crop lunch!

  10. I'm sure I must have mentioned how much I love your blog banner, but if I didn't I'll say it now. FAB. I eat SO MUCH lettuce, really, heads and heads of it a week, I should grow my own and save a fortune...if I could keep the dang rabbits off it. Just call me Mr. MacGregor.....is the crib working? Ours would just burrow under - seriously, pull in the drive and I swear you can see 50 of them scatter across the lawn.


    Happy near 5 year WOYWW!

    1. Mary Anne--it's funny, I think our bunnies are too fat to burrow under that chicken wire! My neighbor has three cats who come over and lay around my garden every day--I think this helps. This pallet garden was planted with only one packet of Mesclun seeds! Pretty cheap.

  18. Thanks for visiting my blog. For some reason, that tag inspires me to start the crazy quilt I've always wanted to make. And the lettuce crib is great. I take it critters are an issue. LOL Creative Blessings! Kelly #70
