WOYWW #209 - wake up sheep

Hello. Today is Wednesday (well in some parts of the World). WOYWW stands for What's on your Workdesk Wednesday? Well, funny you should ask..........

It was, until an hour ago, really tidy and clear. My mum arrives from the UK tomorrow and half of the loft is for her so I had a good tidy up. Then I sat down to do this post and I got carried away 'doing'. Still, a clean, tidy desk is no fun for you to look at is it?

Now let me try and explain what all my mess is about.

The usual pile of swimming towels, beavers uniform and blanket ready for badges to be sewn on. Now I know I had this to do last week, but my excuse is, my Mum is much better at sewing on badges than me, and wouldn't she just love to do it! So there it sits until at least tomorrow.

IPad with instructions for Sleepy Sheep. Glass of water. A new project (like to have new things on the go) it is going to be a tea cosy and I am just making it up as I go along. Stuffing that I had to take out of Sheeps arms as they were too full. The pink yarn, crochet hook and magazine is to make flower coasters, I just saw it this afternoon and started making it. A disembodied sheep. He now has a face and ears, I have to sew his limbs on (the wool is driving me mad, everytime I pull it tight, it breaks, which is why it isn't finished yet).

My tin of bits, ever handy. And last but not least on the left is my cardi sleeve no2, not quite up to my elbow yet, but it may be finished next week (not sewn up thought I doubt).

As I said Moo, my Mum, is here for six weeks, so who knows how much I will get done while she is here. Maybe a lot, maybe nothing, but I know one thing, all our washing will be kept up-to-date, folded, put away and the boys will be well read to.

I am off now to see what everyone else is up to, I am looking forward to seeing all those lovely ATC's that everyone swapped last week.

Poor sheep, looks a bit dismembered! When your mum has done all your washing, send her my way would you!! You're number 97 this week.

LOVE your sheep and I can't wait to see it done. I went on vacation a few weeks ago to Virginia as they have a rare sheep program and I think they are the cutest! Enjoy your time with your mom! Winnie#79

Love seeing all the different projects you have on the go. The sheep looks cute and it'll be great to see him with all his limbs on! Hope your mum has a lovely visit.

At first I saw a panda, but I can see it is a sheep, I love sheep! I have a crochet pattern for sheep, and the yarn but not got started, maybe I should!

Happy WOYWW.
