WOYWW #169

What's on your Workdesk Wednesday?
I am just going to accept that the world is spinning out of control and that's why Wednesdays comes around so quick. 

Finally all the stockings and lifesavers counted by the volunteer hubby, knitted and provided by wonderful friends Selena Walden, Julie Collins, Ruth Kelly,  Penelope Dickens, Anna Holcroft, Shirley Gerrard, Mary Fenton and her merry knitters-Dawn Gardiner-Fay Godden-Heather Mortlock-Irene Martin-Joyce Martin-Molly Condely
THANK YOU LADIES
you are awesome and so generous
These goodies are for the Stockings for Soldiers Project being sent overseas to the deployed who can't come home for Christmas
Hubby and his food of course he is a shy participant (mad at me for taking is photo).
We'll I'm off to hospital tomorrow, they said I could watch the operation on a tv screen yay I have always wanted to watch my operations and finally they have said YES.
Thought I'd share this joke with you all

Jump on over to Julia's Stamping Ground to see more workdesk photos.

Hi Bridget,

Look at all those stocking for the troops! You and your great friends will bring a smile to so many faces this Christmas.

Good luck with your operation. When I had my knee replaced I asked for my knee joint - but it was hazardous waste so I couldn't have it. Nope, I didn't want to watch the surgery.......

Happy WOYWW
Hugs, Kay #17

You are an amazing woman, to organize and devote so much time to make someone else have a good Christmas. And so are your friends. Most men don't want you taking their photos. Especially if you are posting it on your blog. #27

You are amazing, in more ways than one, kudos to all the friends helping out with the operation soldier project, and to hubby for helping out! I couldn't imagine watching my own operation, eeks and yikes! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Tertia said...

First, good luck with the op, you are very brave to watch.
The socks are wonderful and so are tall the people that helped and DH that helped count too. Mine hates cameras, so I never get his face on ant photo.
Your last message made me ROFLMAO
Happy WOYWW!

Hi Bridget,
Is this a factory or what?! You're doing a great job, good on you.
Now I don't mind beer myself, but Pabst Beer is NOT my fave at all. Very cute joke.

Ann B said...

Popping by to say thanks for the links Bridget - love that first craft shed (although it looks more like a palace to me, and so, so tidy). I'll let you tell Mr B that we have found an alternative use for his campervan LOL).
