Work desk Wednesday

Morning all.

Had a nice break and I have not been near the table of craft for over a week. I have been to stay with my daughter and looked after her two dogs while she and her daughter went on holiday, They had a lovely time but are glad to be home,

I was walking to see my friend and went near the woods where we used to play as Children and was so surprised  to see this holly tree still there it must be well over 60 years old and we used to have a den in there. It was like going back a good few years, 

These are the dogs I was looking after, Top picture Toby, other picture Goldie, Only way I could tell them apart was the colour  Toby is darker.  

Now onto the challenges,
