Woyww #164 - holiday crafts

Hello. It's Wednesday (well it is in the UK, maybe not here in Canada but hey!). Now I am joining in with What's on your workdesk whilst I am on holiday. Nothing better than a bit of outside holiday crafting (or vacation as we should say).


On my desk today is:-

A bag of Hot Pink wool (I got from the thrifty shop - it looks old), I promised my niece I would make her a crochet monkey with some of it. There is also some pale pink felt for his face and a box full of different coloured buttons for his eyes as not decided what colour to use yet. I have a Mollie Makes Magazine in case I need inspiration. My smash book with an idea in for a Jumper Owl. Need to find an old jumper first. That's a project for another week!

I also have a 'nearly finished' item I am making as a present (SSshhhhhhhhhhh), a bag of stuffing in my lovely giveaway win bag by Faded Reverie, a knitting pattern and my cup of tea.

Right, well I best get on then. I will try and visit as many as I can tomorrow but please bear in mind I am on holiday (did I mention that?) and there is a lot of resting, relaxing, sunbathing, swimming, eating and drinking to do.

Hello! My first WOYWW today, and since I'm in at 128 (bit late, I know), I thought I'd visit all the 8s first of all and then see how much further I get! And so far, there have been amazing coincidences, and now I arrive here and, like me, you're crafting away from home!! That looks like a wonderfully inspirational place to work. Have fun with your Crochet Monkey and Jumper Owl!

Didn't even think to look for you this morning to link up, assumed you'd be having a lie in!! Hope the deer doesn't try and eat your wool!!

Hi what a cool & shady lazy day kind of mood your outdoor work space has - very envious ! Hope you squeeze in a couple of projects into the holiday groove ! Ali #97

Now that's a damn near perfect holiday sight isn't it. I shouldnt worry about visiting, you're far too busy getting family time sorted...
I think the pink wool will go down a treat, we seem to be in a seventies time warp!

Looks perfect! Have a great holiday! I'd love to be there right now :) Thanks for sharing!

What a lovely looking work desk -and outside, too!
I did some crochet outside this week as the weather's actually been quite hot in the UK.
Good luck with your monkey- pink will look excellent, I reckon!!
Enjoy the weekend.
