Another mid-week is upon us, and I am actually sitting down with my laptop and getting some blogging done.  You would think that with not working or having any kids I would have plenty of spare time, but it doesn't seem to work out that way.

What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday is a special occasion when crafters from all over the world show off their workspaces.  You can join in at Julia's Stamping Ground.

I did manage to do some papercrafting yesterday (I am making cards for family and also for an NSPCC sale), but my old body is not up to dragging up the stairs to take a photo of my desk, so my other work area (the sofa) will have to do!  I am still very addicted to needle felting.  I finished my first project, Darren the Daxie - and now I am working on a cute rabbit.

Here is the sofa before I sit on it -

(The fab Wool Buddies book - I highly recommend this.  Lots of projects and tips.   Tape measure, finger guard, felt pad ...)

Here is Darren -

(A bit fuzzy and wobbly - but so cute.)

Here is the start of my rabbit -

I hope that everyone is well.  I will be touring around a few blogs later.
