Woyww #135

Pretty much the same as last week except I tidied it a little to make room for the things that need to be done first.
The material is a curtain that Moo and I are making for Smallest's bedroom.  We have made one already but we ran out of Witchery Stitchery ( I know that's cheating but I am still trying to persuade Huffle I need to have a sewing machine).
Next to the material (on my table) is a sheep tea cosy which only needs wadding (on my shopping list), and a tail, then lots of boring sewing up and he will be finished.  May be a little big for my teapot but I will love him all the same.
The other side of the curtain is a bag of knitting.  Now I started this woyww many many months ago and the reason I started it was to shame me into finishing a piece of knitting I started last winter.  A year has gone by and the damned thing is still sitting there waiting for Moo to undo a bit so I can carry on knitting it, sew it up and give it back to her to wear!!  She is over visiting us and only has seven days left.  If she doesn't leave with it as a fully wearable cardi then I will send it to her in the post as it is.  There!  Hopefully that will shame us both into doing something with it!
There is also a box on there with a Pom Pom sticking out of it.  This is box of things to send for the DotDot family.  I finished sewing the hat.  I better send it soon else BabyDotdot will be at school before he gets it.
I know the pompon is as big as the hat but LizzieDotDot didn't mind and anyway it's more fun like that!

That's it this week.  Pop along to http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com to find out where all this started and see a huge long list of other blogs who take part in this week after week.  Lots of lovely talented people out there with much to show.

I joined WOYWW for the same reason.....to shame myself into finishing all of my UFO's....I have so many. You must tell Huffle that you need NEED a sewing machine...second hand even:) Stitch Witchery can become a very expensive way to do stuff.

Lol to Annie! Love how Smallest loves his curtains so much too. I think one of the reasons I'm doing socks is that they're small projects, and theoretically, won't take forever to do! Love the sound of the teapot cover, and I hope Moo can take her finished cardi back home with her.

Hugs

I'm in the Big Bobble camp too - actually, that sounds soooo wrong - teeny bobbles are mimsy and not right! So there!!
Love the Curtain Appreciation Society's approval pic :) He's right, they are funky!
Hugs, LLJ #26 xx

You definitely need a sewing machine. A good second hand one would be fine and you would be amazed how many times you would use it - I would be lost without mine!! x Jo

I just started knitting a baby blanket. I have two friends due - one in May and the other in June. Needless to say that's been my project in the evenings after work. Maybe I should have knitted a hat??

Happy WOYWW

Sewing machine is a must have. Put it on your list and keep it there to shame Huffle into buying you one. Love the big bobble. Hugs Mrs A. #120

I like the big pom pom on the top of that hat! You certainly have lots of different projects in the making.

I can't say I see WOYWW working to get me to complete stuff, but I might have to give it a whirl!
