WOYWW and a Friendly Spider

Evening lovely Crafters. I hope you are all well. Thank you for your kind comments and thoughts about my poor tooth. It is now well and truly out but I am running out of soft things I am able to eat. Yesterday all I had all day was a bowl of soup so I went to bed with a rumbly tumbly. Today has been a bit better but I never knew meals could take so long. The good thing was I had strict instructions from my lovely dentist to take it easy all day yesterday and not do anything so I had a great excuse to sit in the garden in the hot sunshine with my book.

Normal service has been resumed today and as it's Wednesday it must be Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday again so here is my desk as I left it on Monday night. I've been playing with the gorgeous Polkadoodle house stamps and trying to colour them as Nicky Hall demonstrates using the broad end of the Promarkers and just laying down colour without worrying too much. For once I am quite pleased with the results. It is not natural to not be careful when colouring but I'm getting addicted.

I've also been continuing with the pom pom spiders at school this morning and I got permission to take a picture of them for you. I love the colourful legs although we've had to put out an appeal for more wool, it's surprising how much has been used already and we're only half way through the class. Hopefully, the parents will come up trumps otherwise we might have to make up blue and green spiders instead!!

Don't forget to pop over to see our esteemed WOYWW leader Julia to see what's on everyone elses desks this week, there are some beauties out there.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm off to do some more colouring now and listen to the new Take That CD that my lovely Hubby surprised me with when he came home tonight. I am a lucky girl!!

Loving the look of your work desk .. .. those house images and your colouring of them is wonderful.

Lovely little spiders and am sure the children are very blessed having you for a teacher.
I have been there with teeth had one out several months ago which went badly awry and was on soft food for ages not fun, but I was not terribly hungry as felt yuck anyway.I am now in the middle of root canal..On a cheerier note - Happy WOYWW and thanks Lisa for popping over, I am off to look at your post above it looked very interesting!
