WOYWW - 6th October

On my workdesk today is a mess, the tidy desk didn't last long!  I've mainly been dumping stuff on it as I've been sewing. You can see my Anna Griffin Christmas stamps and a couple of recently purchased wood mounted stamps.



Not strictly on my workdesk, but this is what I've been working on this week.  After seeing nerllybird's wonderful mannequin makeover last week, it spurred me on to finish mine.  I've had it for ages but did paint it some weeks ago and made her skirt.  I also got round to making a silly sock creature; his name is Dandy Dinmont; again after having bought socks months ago to make some.  (I have posted these 2 in earlier posts).  I've also completed another sock creature and her name is Miss Knucklefunty - Dandy's new girlfriend :-)   If you'd love to see what other bloggers are creating or just a snoop round their workspace pop over to the delightful Julia's to find out more.

Wow, you are early this week. I am just now getting mine together. Miss Knucklefunty is so funty-funny. And I see the eyes and the Anna Griffin stamps. Is that a flower in the lower right? Happy WOYWW where you are. It's still Tuesday here (grin).

PS you are up late!

Oh yet another lovely sock creature - well I think it is only fair that you give the poor boy a girlfriend - he would be terribly lonely! Ha, ha...
Anne you have made some lovely stuff and your desk is also a lovely mess! :-)
Hugs,
Cardarian

Love your mannaquin and the sock creatures and what great names you have given them. Desks always get dumped on . Usually put mystuff on the chair then I have to sort it out before I start work - I wish, just goes on the floor or the bed.

Jingle said...

Oh, i am loving your dolls! How fun! And to answer your question on rigid wrap (you didn't include your email so I couldn't directly respond) - yes...that is pretty much what it is. I've not used it before, but I have been itching to try it!

Spyder said...

These are really great little 'dolls' !! and yes I was so washed out last night (Long story and nothing to do with being in the shower too long) I just couldn't do WOYWW so, got up this morning and did it, only to suddenly realise my craft room clock was waaaaaaaaaay behind, and then, I get to work...(late) and when I'm ready to come home my car has no gears!(again)
You wouldn't believe how many times I've looked at my woyww photo's to see if something I can't find is hidden under something somewhere!
Have a great WOYWW!!
((Lyn))
Ps, freebie was done at that time too, so it might get changed to the some doodle but a little better drawn!
