What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday 181

Hello all and welcome to another edition of What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday, hosted as usual by the veritable Julia of Stamping Ground fame.  This is Thanksgiving week here in America, which means I have Thursday and Friday off work for a nice long weekend!  I’m looking forward to a bit of downtime as I’ve been really busy lately and I wasn’t able to get round to many of you at all last week for WOYWW.  I had good intentions but they came to naught!  I usually comment on my lunch breaks but I worked right through last Wednesday, had a much shortened one on Thursday and went to our work cafeteria with my colleagues on Friday for a free Thanksgiving lunch.    The weekend wasn’t any better as Friday evening saw Andrew and I in downtown Northville for the Holiday Parade and lighting up ceremony, Saturday we went to see the new Bond movie followed by dinner with friends (both excellent btw), and Sunday I went to a Stampin Up card class with another friend where we made 10 Christmas cards, snacked, chatted and socialised with other crafters.  I also got my very first taster of Stampin Up products too.

So on to the desk.

[If you're wondering why there's a large Gingko leaf bottom left you'll have to talk to Him Indoors, he's always fiddling with my photos!!]

It’s looking a bit staged as I wanted to get everything in to one shot.  But you can see five cards there, they were made at the class on Sunday, we did two of each design; the socks are there, completely finished, sewn in and checked over for mistakes, all ready for the Christmas wrapping now!  There’s also something new on the needles, but quite what that is remains to be seen because it’s not a sock!!  There are also two Stampin Up catalogs there too (sorry about the glare from the flash), little printed money pits is what they really are, lol!!

That’s me for this short working week, you’ll find the full desk hopping list over at Julia’s as per usual.  If anyone was interested in any of the pumpkin recipes I’ve talked about recently I posted them on Monday, so scroll down if that’s your thing.  All that remains is to wish all my American visitors and friends a very happy and safe Thanksgiving on Thursday.

Oh, and if I may.  We launched the Giraffe Ribbon Storage systems on Amazon the other week and there have already been 7 sold!  There will be a three day Thanksgiving “Black Friday” sale on them on Friday, Saturday and Sunday if anyone is interested.

  1. Happy thanksgiving to you on Thursday (I remember you saying that a year ago too). Fabulous socks, well done. What is it you are knitting now in four needles? Leg wArmers, mitts? Tell himself I love the leaf, very mysterious. X

  2. Great workshop cards, Brenda! That single tree image is a fave of mine ~ hard to make a bad card with it. SU! products are what got me started on this whole journey a decade ago. For the money, they are good guality and very reasonable (and I’m not a demonstrator).

    Great job finishing Andrew’s socks and lovely yarn for the new mystery project!

    I’m not joining in this week over at WOYWW, but I got to see your desk via being a subscriber. Way to go with the Giraffe RS sales ~ hope you have a blow-out weekend super sale ~ and Happy Turkey Day/Long Weekend!!


  3. Hullo there Brenda, ah have not been your way lately as have not even looked at my email account that gets most of my subs for posts. Slack, I know! will have to do catchup!! ah those socks are amazing – is it just one pair or is it two pairs??
    .. leaf never seen it before so glad you told me what is it and agree on card comment above – and too am sucker for SU bu shall confess buy most of it on eBay when discontinued as very pricey over here.
    Thanks so much for popping over and thanks for sharing ~ happy WOYWW! Shaz in Oz. x # no number available yet..

  4. I don’t be-leaf it! Sorry…..you’ll have everyone stumped with that addition to the desk :)
    Luvverly socks, I like that stripey wool…so much easier than fairisle. Hmm and I wonder what you’re up to next.
    Oh, nice pumpkin recipes btw!
    Hugs, LLJ #36 xx

  5. Thanks for linking me. When it’s a morning link, it’s more than I can do to get up, get the kids ready and find my coffee. Cheers x

  6. wow, the socks look amazing, very professional! Gorgeous cards too,. I love Stampin Up, attend classes here from time to time too, I love to pick up someone else’s ideas even though the cards are nothing like I would usually make. Love the catalogues too, you are right about them being money pits!
    Enjoy your long weekend!

  7. Yea socks! Aren’t they fabulous! Really love how they turned out.m let’s see, stitches on three needles working with a fourth….hmmm… Maybe mittens? That’s how my grandma and mom made mittens. Happy turkey day to you! Nan 93

  8. Oh, I do love those socks! I noticed the new yarn on the needles right away – is it Noro? I think I have something quite similar. My yarn stash goes back years and years. I’m one of those that bought only one skein here and one skein there. I’m tired of making scarves but really don’t know what else to do with my mish mash of supplies. Do you have any suggestions?

    The cards you made at the SU party are beautiful!

    I want to see the new Bond movie — perhaps this weekend…..

    Happy Thanksgiving.


  9. Love the socks. I have just recently been introduced to Stampin’ Up products and I quite agree those catuloges are real money pits as the stuff in them is so desirable!! Have a happy day.

  10. Cards are gorgeous, socks are incredible and the leaf is an added bonus to keep us on our toes. Enjoy your week. Sandra @18

  11. I see the socks are back on the desk….it looks like you got a flurry of snow – we haven’t yet but they are promising some on Saturday! Looks like you had a lovely thanks giving weekend! And that pecan pie well it looks just sooooooo yummie!!! I am late commenting had visitors last week and was really busy!
    Lots of hugs,
