WOYWW 22nd September - Here in spirit

Hello fellow WOYWWers, Happy Wednesday.  If you've no idea what I'm on about pop over to Julia's and find out more, then do please join us.  It's all good fun ;-)
Well I've tidied my desk at last - still not as tidy as some 'cos there are quite a few things that live on my desk.  On mine this weeks is a pile of scrap paper which I use when inking and stamping.  There's also a doll I'm making for the doll group I'm a member of.  One of our members sadly died last year and this is the doll she was working on.  Chris, who organises the group, thought it would be nice for us all to have a go at making one.  I decided I'd paint the fabric once completed rather than use  coloured fabric for this.
I thought I'd show the finished tutu I started before going on holiday.  It could do with lining really but will be ok if my youngest granddaughter wears leggings with it.  The colour is much more vibrant and more turquoise than it looks here but as it was raining I couldn't take a pic outside which would've resulted in a truer colour.
NB as I'm going to DS's for a couple of days and won't get chance to post on Wed, would some kind person please link me up at Julia's - thank you.  I'll be round to visit you from Thursday onwards ;-)

Love the colour of this tutu, and what a marvellous idea for you all to have a go and finish the doll.

OK, I'm late and I know I'm late. I just can't seem to get around this week, so decided to visit a few people I really want to visit. Love the little tutu. What a heartfelt tribute to your art friend.

Your desk and even your shelves look tidy. I spy the eyes, too. Guess you know I'm #2.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I should have REREAD the message before I sent it. I wanted to say the doll was a tribute, NOT the tutu, as the message seemed to convey. Guess I need more coffee :>)

Ooh look, you've tidied up! The doll project looks very interesting and a great way to commemorate your friend.

I like the jar -0 keeping watch over all! The doll is going to be lovely - and what a nice way to 'tribute'. Hope you're having a nice time with DS.
