Well my worktop today has something a little bit different. This is a blanket for our bed . My daughter made all the squares and then made rather a poor effort of  assembling them so I am now reassembling them.
Unfortunately they are 3 1/2 to 4 inches square so there are an awful lot of them to put together. Those on the table are just a very few of them, there is also a bag full of them and a few more still at home.
If anyone has arrived at this page wondering what WOYWW is all about, just pop of the wonderful Julia's
and find out all about it and have a snoop at other people's workdesks.
 There was also a more familiar thing on my worktop earlier yesterday. Trying to get a card done in a hurry for my brother in law and I had some furry assistance. In the foreground you can see the card I made for my grandson who loves puffins.
Well this is going to be short I have had a very busy few days and exhaustion is rapidly approaching.
Happy Woyww everyone

What a gorgeous cat! I love the puffin card, perhaps that's what attracted the cat to sit there! Hugs. Pam#41

I so love Granny squares, they do indeed make me think of my Grandmother and all the blankets she used to make. Have a good week.

Good luck with all those squares, the blanket is going to look great. Aren't cats funny the way they have to get involved?

Hi Chris - what a lot of work you have putting those squares together but what a beauty it will be when don. Hope it is ready for "C" Day as it will look quite festive.
Love your cat, glad he/she can be of help. Reminds me of Max from next door.
Take care

In answer to your question Chris, yes we have a front yard as well and that is what is being weeded and mulched atm. I have been working on more the last few days and we call this a frontyard and gardens out the side way are called sideyards LOL simple really I have garden around 3 sections of my house, a lot of garden really. As for the mat on my desk yes it is self healing and it is huge 36 inches x 24 inches I could of got bigger but this was enough.
