WOYWW #168

Whats on your Workdesk Wednesday here already!!!
My desk today is half empty, thats because my turn to host Tuesday night stamp group will be next Tuesday so I made a headstart on the cleaning process. You can see the stockings I am sewing up for Stockings for Soldiers Project 
As for food, I just had to share these Nuts and Bolts for the same project above, they are just the yummiest of snacks I have ever made. The recipe is in the previous post if you'd like to make it and be warned that it is addictive

RosC said...

Hi Bridget,
The little socks are fun and the desk looks as though there will be some good business here come Tuesday.
It's gotta be half a century since I had nuts'n'bolts. Yum-o but very more-ish so I can't stop eating them.
Have fun,
Ros. #125

Ohhh Snap said...

Shoshi said...

Nice clear desk, Bridget, and I love the little stockings you are making. The nuts and bolts look amazing! I've just looked at your recipe. Yummy!

Thanks for your lovely comment - I'm afraid I've no good news to report - because I am so exhausted today my hubby went to see Dad on his own this p.m. and says he's no better despite being on antibiotics for several days, and being rehydrated. He's very thin, and very confused and out of it, and kept trying to pull the drip out of his arm. This is so not like my dad in every way... My wonderful hubby is being such a trooper and carrying us all through this crisis. I really don't know what we'd do without him.

Your hugs and prayers mean more to me than I can say. Thank you!

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #35
