WOYWW # 192

Morning all
Desk reporting for inspection as requested by platoon leader Julia (Quick march HERE troops to see the full parade)

 Oops, not a great inspection result, what a mess. Actually, it's not too bad. Definitely seen worse. So what's going on here?
 New weapons of mass creativity; isn't it beautiful?
 Ten, this is taking shape underneath here, hiding from view.........
Some of the bits from Sunday's class that have not found a home yet. So there you have it; all calm on the surface but there is a little pile(actually a rather large pile) of stuff going on to the left and right of this shot; but don't worry, all will be revealed in good time!
Before I toodle off though, I thought I'd share this present from my daughter, a lovely tailor dummy decoration made of metal and paper mache, standing almost 45cm tall. I popped it here until I decide what I'm going to do with it in terms of decoration but isn't it gorgeous?
Righteo, I've an early shift at work today so better get a move on!

Always great things on your desk Neil. Love that bubbles background! It is a stamp, isn't it? (Not a stencil?) Looks good anyway!
Happy WOYWW,

It's lovely that your daughters and your wife are so clued in to finding stuff for you...makes you realise that they utterly 'get' you, huh. Am liking the bubbly stencil - is that one of yours?

Hi Neil,

Definitely seen worse if that's the right word, but definitely very interesting. I'm intrigued with the boat and love the bubbles. I think bubbles are the theme of the moment.

Thanks for leaving a comment.
