What's on your workdesk? Wednesday.. 540

Hello everyone,

Time for a midweek share of what's on our work desks 
Thanks to Julia it's show & tell day over at the 
stamping ground as it's WoywW #540

More DIY this week as Hubby's been supervising Son's 
replacing rotten decking in between heavy downpours. 

Many of you know how I love to craft outdoors, this area is my 
biggest workdesk it's served me well over the past 17 years.

Making the most of blue skies yesterday.. 
I'm so excited that it's nearly finished 😊

Up to date with care duties so I've a day at home today Yayyyy..!
May even get an hour or two crafty time but first I must finish
framing some art work as i've taken over the kitchen table. 

I'm a magpie for collecting frames A3's are so hard to find.

Look forward to seeing what's on your work desk.

Creative Hugs 
Tracey xx

Nice decking missus! Your son did a great job, I can see you spending loads of time out there. Hope you manage to get a little bit of crafting done between everything else you have to do - you're important too!

Hi Tracey - love the pictures you have been framing. I so enjoy seeing the girls you do, you are so good with faces. Don't tell me you did the tiger? Fur and feathers are so difficult to paint.
If you feel you should go to a private guy, it probably costs around £200 but shouldn't be more - it should fast track you through the system. Its long time since I did so but he actually waived his fee for me - but back in those days it was about £60.
Sorry to hear hubby is having problems, will include him in my prayers again.
Hugs, Neet xxx

Thank you Neet, the Tiger is actually layered Napkins.. it's hear if you want to take a closer look xx
P.S Managed to get Hubby an appointment this morning for two weeks today.. I think he will be having stern words x

Hi Tracey, those framed pictures are beautiful. Love the decking area, looks great. Yes, Alice is always amazing, been a fan since the days of Schools Out- so back as far as the 70's. Also saw him last year with his other band, The Hollywood Vampires. Awesome. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #7 X

Wow the finished deck looks amazing and what a treat for you to sit and craft in such a nice space. Framing is such an important part of bringing a work of art to life. Have a lovely week.

You wouldn’t be replacing any decking around here anytime soon, it’s never stopped raining in over two weeks. My wellies need their own wellies haha

Hi Tracey, well done with the decking. Thank goodness we're on the floor now so hubby can get inside as it still keeps raining off and on here. I have a story about frames. I used to go round junk shops looking for them and this guy had two black ones which I quite liked but I didn't want the pictures he let me have them both for £2.50 providing I took them as they were. I never got round to taking the pictures out but for a long time thought they were prints but they were actually water colours. They aren't worth a lot but they are by a known artist so you never know what you might find. Have a lovely woyww and a happy creative week, Angela x14x

Hi Tracey, the decking looks great. Well done son! I love our garden, but never really think to do much crafting our there - possibly because of the all the rain we get lol. I do some colouring occasionally out there. Your pictures really are stunning - you are such a talented lady! Have a lovely week Heather xx #28

Redanne said...

Your new outdoor work space is looking fabulous, I think your son has done a great job, especially with the horrible rainy weather we have been having.

You have done a great job with the picture framing, I love that beautiful lady and the gorgeous tiger. Frames do make such a big difference, these will look beautiful when displayed. Hugs, Anne xx

I am kind of grinning Tracey, I have a box of unused frames. ( in a couple of closets so the stash looks smaller ;) ) love the deck and yay for some crafty time. ~Stacy #26

Ooh, look at that smart new decking! And your artworks look great in their frames too - I can imagine that takes up quite a lot of space though!

How exciting, your decking looks fabulous! It will be a lovely place to sit in the sunshine too 😀. I loved seeing all your framed art pieces - beautiful! I hope you've had a lovely week, Happy Friday! Hugs, Jo x

Shoshi said...

The decking is looking great, Tracey, and also your lovely framed art work! My hubby and I usually pick up old frames at the village fete each summer. I've got quite a stash of them now and really need to do some art to put in them!!

Thank you for visiting, and for your good wishes for my PIP assessment this coming week. I'm glad you like the slippers - I'm on the final phase now and they may even be finished by next week's WOYWW!! I'm keen to get on to trying the teabag printing too.

Happy belated WOYWW,
