WOYWW #159 - flower, hair and a hot day

Wednesday's come round too quick. Each week I think, I'll post lots of entries this week and then suddenly it's Wednesday again and I've hardly done anything. So..... What's on my workdesk outside table and chair Wednesday?


My craft table is in the loft and as today has been in the 40's (with humidity), I couldn't even venture up there so decided to craft outside on the front porch. Still hot but nicer!

So on my 'desk' is my craft bag and a pile of Mollie Makes that my Mum brought over from England for me. Also there is my little handmade notebook (from Faded reverie) with a zentangle in. My crochet doll (from following Annaboo's House Crochet a Long) whose hair is not quite finished with a lovely crocheted flower I made using the giveaway on Mollie Makes. It's not quite right but easy enough to do. I need to make some more but concentrate this time! My IPad is also there helping me to follow the pattern for my dolls hair. It seems I've been doing this for ages, hoping to finish it this week (plus her dress - am wondering whether to crochet it or sew it!).

So that's me done. Off to enjoy a bit more outside crafting with a break here and there to look at everyone else's blog and see what they are up to.

Oh, in case you didn't see, I finished Small's sock monkey. He is very pleased and he called it Funky.

....and to celebrate my Mum (Moo) visiting we made American Pancakes for breakfast.



See you soon xxx

Another scorcher of a day here too today, way too hot, I don't like it! Love the finished sock monkey, Small made the right choice with the eyes! Love the pancakes, we make them once in a while but the sugar usually does me in for the day as I'm not used to it! You're number 117 this week.


Annaboo said...

Your little doll is lovely!
Glad you're persevering with her!
Lovely flower, too- must get myself the most recent copy of Mollie Makes, there's always some inspiring ideas.
Look like a fab place to work, too!

Hi, there! I love your doll-in-progress -- it will be fun to see what you decide to make for her dress. The pancakes look delicious. [Thanks so much for taking the time to email me when the comment didn't want to post to my blog. I'm sorry you had trouble. Darned Typepad. Maybe leaving the URL box empty would've worked.] ~ Laura #127

Hi Famfa thanks for popping in to see me. The piano hinge binding is quite easy really - I found a tutorial and left a link with May (62) if you want to give it a go. Yes I did share with Comet!

Will you share the pancakes I wonder? Love the face with the raspberry Kiss! How nice to be able to craft outside.

Hugs from Helen 107

Please pop to see Angenita (89) as she could do with a WOYWW hug today (pass it on)

Yummy pancakes and gorgeous Funky. I like your space today (far better than the high temperature of the attic room). Thanks for sharing.. Hope you have a good week. Hazel WOYWW #87 x

40 degrees??? I think I'd melt - I really can't hack very high temperatures, must have been a Viking in a former life, lol!!
Funky Monkey is looking very cute (and he knows it!) good choice of eyes there :)
Pancakes with berries, mmmmmmmmmmmmm save some for me!
Hugs, LLJ #72 xx

You're little dolly is looking great. I love the little crocheted flower too. I bought that edition of Mollie Makes (although I've gone off the mag) so that I could make the flower, but it's still on my "to do" pile!

Pancakes look yummy - although I think you'll find they're "Scotch" pancakes, tee hee.

Lovely to have a porch to relieve the heat a bit, bet Moo is enjoying some summer warmth! LOVE the pancake with the raspberry mouth, looks like he's puckered up! I dont think it matters how long it takes to make the dolly, grief, its not like you have nothing else to do!!
