WOYWW #222 Things Unfinished

Hello, today is the day to be joining in with What's on your Workdesk, Wednesday or WOYWW.

Without Brenda to give me a push, I very nearly forgot again. Which could be another reason for why my desk is so untidy and in the middle of things!

Eco Eric's brother (Smallest requested one for Christmas) is in the middle of being stitched and stuffed. He requested blue and as he is supposed to be made of recycled wool, I used all my old bits and bobs, hence the strangeness of him. The pattern and what he should look like is middle left. I have made two of these previously and one looked a bit like it and the other, well, he is so loved it doesn't matter.

Middle back are my socks I am still working on. It seems I had done them right until the other night when I was knitting and watching TV and I did too many decreases, couldn't undoe them and pulled the whole lot off but then couldn't get the damn stitches back on right. It is a mess! The other one is okay now and under control and should be finished in a day or so.

Other things on my desk, my library book, a To Do list, my sewing tin, cup of hot water (sore throat) and the same origami book with the same pieces of paper I couldn't fold last week - whoops!

Hopefully I commented on all who commented on mine last week plus a few more. This week I have no kids, visitors, relatives or excuses, so I should get round to many many more.

I will just leave you with a photo of some muffins I made yesterday using Courgettes again. Yum yum.

Yum. Will help myself to a muffin while I visit, thanks! Hope very much that your sore throat does no further damage and leaves fast. If I were you, that bundle of knitting that needs a bit of sorting wold sit there forever..luckily it's a sock and needs to be part of a pair or the motivation may be lacking! Wait till you're better and feeling very STRONG!!

Sorry I didn't get to visit last week but life just got in the way....Just not enough hours in the day to do all I 'need to do' let alone 'want to do'.
You sound as busy as me with all your fab projects on the go....and still time to bake muffins!! Yum

Yum, yum courgette muffins! Sorry to hear about the knitting whoops, but it's good you've got back on track. That little blue person is looking adorable. I just love unusual handmade toys! Thanks for sharing! Julie Ann x #34

All the best undoing the sock - horrid job! Eco Eric looks fascinating - have fun, and I am sure he will be VERY well loved. It is SO good to see another to do list - I have to use them....or I would completely lose the plot and never get anything done!
Have a great week.

Well, quite a move from UK to Canada. Margaret (thant's glitterandglue) and I went to the Canadian Rockies for our Silver wedding anniversary - absolutely fabulous - sigh - it was 16 years ago. Anyway, hope the throat feels better soon, and you feel well enough to tackle the list! Have a good WOYWW week, kind regards, John-W #51
