What's on your Workdesk Wednesday?

Afternoon All...Hope it is sunny where you are!
I have had a lovely morning with year 3/4 of my new school, walking to one of the local churches and learning about the sort of things that go on inside a church. Tescos shop on the way home and now I can show you What's on my workdesk!
I have started making some little Christmas Robins. The body is card and the red tummy is a button with the shank removed.

Also on my desk are some grey and pink off cuts from a corporate job and a card that I made for my friend who owns the small recruitment business. She sends out a Congrats on the new job card when she places someone in a position.

and now some photos of my garden. A before shot...

And now it looks like this...

We have blue lights in the decking which look fabulous at night.

Having decking all along the bottom instead of an edged circle has made the space so much more useable...We have removed lots of bushes and plan to take out another circle and lay turf instead. Looking forward to the summer holidays now.
Off to have some tea now and catch up with my family...Thanks for coming to visit!
