WOYWW 594: Countdown to Half Term

 Back for another sharing of the desk and linking up with WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?) courtesy of our weekly host Julia at Stamping Ground.  I must admit to counting down the days until half term now.  I am so ready for a break from work.

My desk shows me getting ready for my daily #inktober2020 drawing as that is what I do each morning.  You can see Monday and yesterday's offerings in the sketchbook that I keep especially for these sketches.  I can't show you anything else at the moment as i am busy making samples for three different Clarity shows, ready for posting at the weekend.  I will share the #inktober drawings that I have done since last week in case you are interested.






The open evening/Saturday went well and the Saturday counts as one of our twilight training seesions for this year so that is good.  It may be the weekend before I manage to visit, sample making dependent.  Stay safe and Happy WOYWW everyone.

Happy WOYWW. I am still loving your sketches. I am annoyed at myself for not getting involved with Inktober again, but this month has definitely been hectic and continues to be. Look forward to seeing your finished Clarity samples. Ali x #7

Lovely drawings yet again, I would love to be better as it.
We have our younger granddaughter on half term this week, all three kids are on half term next week and then our older granddaughter will have the following week off too!
Since I retired from teaching, half terms are not quite the same!!!!

Take care. God bless.

Cor, that sample making is really a big commitment for Someone as busy as you are. Don’t get me wrong, I know you enjoy it and you’re great at it, Clarity must love your reliability. I expect you are looking forward to half term, I would be....has the cold gone properly? Hope so. Love that you can render a Daley in such detail!!

Christine said...

Love all the sketches you've been drawing for October. Best of luck with all the sample making.

You can't be looking forward to half term more than my son LOL! Lucky for them it's inset day on Friday (less lucky for the teachers though) - he's also hoping it will be extended if they decide on a lockdown again. Loving your take on Inktober - how do you come up with all these ideas? Happy countdown to half term - not a day too soon for me either! xx zsuzsa #13

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I've enjoyed seeing your Inktober drawings every day (and Kyla's too) - I'm glad that you're finding it fun too, I bet half term will be a good rest for you, it must be so tricky trying to teach/keep safe etc etc.

I love your Inktober sketches - a little bit of creativity is a great way to start each day, and a perfect sized project to ensure you don't lose a couple of hours in it without realising!
Hope you get your samples made,

Kathryn Frantz said...

Hi, Sarah!

I’ll bet you are looking forward to half term. Are you still putting in full time hours? Even with all modifications? I imagine this “new way” of doing things is stressful and can be exhausting, but in different ways!

Enjoy being creative making your samples as long as it is relaxing and brings you joy!

Stay well!
Happy Wednesday!

Congratulations on your keeping going with the sketching. I hope you manage the whole lot and I think you will.
Glad the weekend went well and that Saturday counted towards a PaD day (if they still exist under that name). Here's to half term and a rest.

Hi Sarah, Hope you get all of your samples done and a break soon. The sketches look very cool, I love the idea of putting them into a notebook so you can flip through them when the project is over. ~Stacy #33

BJ said...

Hi, good to be back in the saddle post-op, didn't think it would take me 2 months to get back to crafting, although I haven't been just sitting around, just doing other things...

Oh the dalek made me smile as my son and I are re-watching all the recent series again currently. Super drawings all round. Half term - bring it on!

Thanks for the visit BJ#26

Kelly said...

Shoshi said...

Thank you for visiting, Sarah, and I'm glad you like the latest Tiny Carpet. I'm so enjoying this project! Thank you for your good wishes re my various appointments. I had my phone appointment with the physio this p.m. about my bladder and she is pleased with me. Still nothing from Exeter... They are a dead loss! I didn't know you were poorly and having an MRI. I hope the results are satisfactory and that you get some answers for whatever is troubling you. Lily and Ruby say Meow back, and purr-purr!

Hello fellow inktoberer!! (is that a word? No idea but it should be!). Love the idea of using a special sketch book to put them in, and especially love the armour one too!
