What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday, week 77

On my craft desk today there are three things mainly

1.  Two new Texture Fade Embossing folders which arrived in today's post after my hubby very kindly 'won' them for me on Ebay.

2.  Towards the back a plastic wallet with some fabric scraps in, I've been doing a bit of hand sewing patchwork in front of the TV so I can keep hubby company for a change instead of disappearing upstairs to the craft room, only to reappear when it's bedtime - lol.

3.  A bundle of ribbons so I can choose some to make a hanger for the baking tray which I've been altering to display my 25 Christmas matchboxes - another post about that will follow later today.

If you'd like to see some other desks go along to Julia's blog Stamping Ground where she has links to 94 others and by the time I add my own link there'll probably be a few more too - so I'm not the only one addicted to this WOYWW lark!

I'll leave you with the snowy view of our little back garden 

I know we've got off lightly compared to other parts of the country, but it ain't 'alf cold!

Thanks for looking and if you let me know you've been, I'll come and visit you too.  Stay safe and warm, until the next time xx

Must go and post up my desk picture.Taken at 4am this morning!
Well I did get as far as buying the tray for the boxes. The thoughts there. Love the pic of your back garden.No snow here at the mo but it is freeeeeeeezing cold. Don't know about the monkeys but our outside tap froze up even though it is double lagged and has one of 'The Docs' bobble hats covering it nice and snug.

Hi Sherry
I feel better now having seen your lovely snow. WE are forecast to have some about 2am today, but they always get it so wrong for the Thames Valley, must be cos we are so low-lying.
Lovely bits on your desk!!

Fab matchbox, love the ribbon she made. Your ribbon storage looks great, mine is more of a hanger and the ribbons keep falling down.

Warm hugs

You have one super sweet hubby. He knows what you like. Can't wait to see the matchboxes. And I LOVE your garden. It looks like all it needs is a red bow.
