Hello and welcome to another week of What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!  You can join the fun here.

My desk this week -
 Rarrr!  I hate my desk like this.  It inspires laziness and saps motivation.  There are piles under piles under piles, etc.  Half drunk tea, half finished presents, half finished decorations, things from projects long gone that I couldn't be arsed to tidy up, fabric bought on a whim, ribbon waiting for a Christmas project that won't be started, let alone finished in time for this year.
 It's hasn't all been negative though.  On 30th November, It occurred to me that the fabric advent panel I bought needed to be turned into an advent panel in time for the following day.  I didn't read the instructions, cut the wrong bits and threw the tabs away,  but this is what it looks like.  I made it for O/H, who doesn't particularly like sweet things, so I filled all the pockets with a Pepperami (individually wrapped flaming hot mini-sausages) substitute from the local Aldi.  He was most amused.
More than Taz was when trying to take her picture for you.  The first attempt resulted in a bitten thumb.  Loves my feisty Mackerel Tabby.

Good luck with your weeks, and hopefully see you next week! x
