WOYWW #125

WHAT'S ON YOUR WORKDESK WEDNESDAY as hosted by Stamping Ground.

My workdesk, this Wednesday is:-


This week I have mostly been knitting and crocheting - what's new?

A Tea Cozy for my friend (the one I am indebted to for my Adele tickets earlier in the year)



It's a little bit "Woca Mola".  In our house, this means 'freestyle' as in the song "Freestyler, woca woca mola" - actually the song goes "Freestyler Walk up to the microphone" but I am well known for getting my lyrics wrong in songs.  Have I lost you yet?

Moo's Cardi which I actually started at the beginning of this year.  I got it out so I could get it finished - just need her help a little as I sewed it together and then realised one side was different (and she noticed).




My blankie - now covers Small beautifully - so much so that he has decided he wants one for his bed, and if he has one then Smallest has to have one too.  They can wait!




A pile of Christmas presents which I can't show because I don't want the recipients to see.  How do I get around this?  I want to show what I am working on but don't want to spoil the surprise - any ideas?


More corks and Kornisse being worked on.



My Smash book and the lovely little labels I bought in a Thrifty store in Canada - would these look cool in handmade gifts for my two boys?  They say "Handmade by Mother".



I have even been handsewing......... (shhh it's a secret!)

Anyway - let's go and look at what everyone else is up to today - here

Love all of your creations there - I am just learning to crochet and keep making a little flower although I havent really mastered it yet and they all look a bit odd (be fine with a big button in the middle though!). Thanks for sharing and have a fab week.

ohoo those 'corks' are a great idea... well, put it this way, you've given me one!! Great crafty-mess, love it, haven't knitted or anything for years though, but there is a knitted snowman on my craft space somewhere!
Happy WOYWW!

I love that tea cosy ...nice to hear they are still used.I think you will be making those blankets forever ...and ever. lol You really are a busy lady. xx

Franka Benjaminsen said...

Nice to find someone who's knitting too. I thought I was alone on this WOYWW. I'm knitting Xmas balls on the moment, but they are not filled yet, so I can't show them now. I love your blankets and tea 'bag' and the colours you've used. Thanks for sharing. Bye, Franka

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Woca mola - love it!! LOL! You could start a whole new thread of misheard lyrics! I'll contribute... how about The Police singing about Sue Lawley instead of So Lonely :D
Nice knitting by the way, my fingers are itching to do some but I've got too much sewing to do and can't take anymore on!!
Hugs, LLJ #43 xx

All your gorgeous knitting looks like a warm hug. Keep smiling and creating...I too am a lousy, but shameless lyric singer. LOL

You're definitely keeping your fingers busy! So much stuff on the go. Will you get it all done in time I wonder! I started one of those frilly scarves last night with that mesh wool or ribbon wool I think they call it!

Marjo said...

Yikes, don't you just hate it when one side ends up different than the other, especially when they notice...lol

At least you have a head start on your gifts. I haven't even started yet.

Thanks for the peek and sharing, have a great WOYWW

xoxo Marjo

Wow you have been busy! I used to do a lot of knitting and crochet but not so much now - I recently took up my crochet again. Love the way you're "upcycling" the corks lol!! Happy WOYWW Shoshi #84

Shoshi said...

Hi - me again! Thanks for your comment on my blog. Glad you liked my butterfly! I hope he survived the heavy rain the next day.

MaggieC said...

You have been busy. I'm glad you are now into crocheting, such a good hobby for sitting in front of the tele, and relaxing in the winter.

Neet said...

Oh "Em Gee" as they say on tv. You are a busy bee, lots of crafting on the go on your table. Thanks for sharing.
Only just had my WOYWW posted as I have been away and now am hoping someone can guess where I have been - little prize for the first to do it. Hugs, Neet #133
