Anyone going to Aintree Show on Thursday???.... there will be a few WOYWWers attending and wearing badges with pride!!! Look out for us and we'll be meeting up at the entrance at 12 noon.
A right mess to snoop on here this week and the worst it has been for months.
It's time to scrutinise the desks of the world courtesy of our organiser and instigator Julia at Stamping Ground, where you can join in or just have a good old nosey and read some of Julia's happenings!!!
My desk is patiently waiting to be cleared after making a selection of special occasion cards for DD2. I sent them off to to Germany in a hurry so they'd arrive in time for her to take to the parties.... a double easel confirmation card, an 80th card and tag book for all the party guests to sign, and a four fold wedding card but I forgot to photograph them so they could be posted!!! It was the first paper crafting I've done in a while and I end up with all mess and no results to prove how I made it.
Dear Fluffy, please can you send me some pics when they arrive, if you have time???
Lately, I've been inspired by rabbits and hares, both on other blogs and bobbing around in the Norfolk fields when I was on holiday so I'm having a go at making one for each of my 3 little girlie grandees.
To see some gorgeous perfect ones... pop over to millefeuilles or patchworkchickens, both really inspiring and interesting blogs.
Here is my prototype which needs a bit of tweaking of the pattern I've plotted out,.... I'm just winging it as I go along! Don't know if this will be a girl or a boy character but, painfully, it sits with a needle through the nose waiting for the rest of its features and clothes. I can't decide how to do the eyes... might use buttons glued and stitched for safety, might just embroider them. I'll make a selection of dresses and knit some cardigans before I finalise their characters.
It would be great if I could just make a girl and a boy and leave the rest to nature!!!
No! I'm not showing my finished Afghan yet again.... this hare is cosying up on 55 squares of No2 blanket which I've stitched together as I go along so it isn't the mammoth task of No1 blanket, so here's desk No2.... a coffee table in front of the TV.
My SIL gave me this knitted corsage and, as I have seen so many people wearing or making scarves from the same Jazz yarn, I thought I'd show it here.... it would be a good idea to make these with any spare yarn and they look so easy too.
Don't forget to tune in to the TV special all about the Titanic Girl which has been rescheduled to 8.30pm Mon next, 30th April.
My previous post shows a little of the magic of this spectacular three day event which took place in my home city over last weekend.
Stand by your desks folks! I'm ready to whizz round the globe for my weekly snoop!
