WOYWW #223 - Stuffing, sewing and stripy legs

Hello Wednesday'ers. Join in with WOYWW here - you will find it inspiring, addictive and incredibly nosey ha!

Well I finished my sock at the weekend. Not my favourite but it is only for me. I have another two to do though I have only bought the wool for one pair. I need to go to a technical day to learn the next one as it is a bit more complicated, so in the meantime :

 

I am stuffing Eco Eric's brother (now called Leftover Leo) and you can see him with a needle in his chest (poor thing) and then sewing on his face and hair before hiding him away for Christmas.

I have also started to knit a Rag Doll. The pattern was sent to me by a lovely old friend (she's not old, I have known her a long time but lost touch and found again on FaceBook), and I am making it for my friend here who has a little girl. They don't know anyone who knits or crochets and asked me to do something. Of course I was delighted. She has lovely stripey legs (the doll, not the girl) so it is another project to use small bits of wool. So far so good. I have made her body, knickers, legs and I am just finishing her second shoe. This has been a nice easy pattern to follow whilst watching TV.

Last week I showed you some muffins I had made. This week I made Oatmeal Cookies, yum. I have one on my desk which you may think is very naughty for a Wednesday morning (bit it is actually Tuesday Evening so maybe I can be excused?). There are plenty if you want one.

I found out last week that I can not comment on anyone who uses the flash on their blogs, which is a shame. We have only Apple devices these days and they are just not compatible, so forgive me if I don't comment - I am not being rude. ; /

Your ragdoll looks like it will be adorable and your oatmeal cookie made me lick my monitor! We eat cookies for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late night snacking around here!! Especially breakfast-saves cooking the oatmeal in a bowl! Have an awesome week! Darnell #24

Leftover Leo is looking great - despite the slightly voodoo thing going on - I'm just as guilty I use most of my felt decorations as pincushions if I get interrupted mid sew! Really enjoyed your post today. Have fun with your rag doll. MMx #76

BJ said...

Oh the memories of knitted rag dolls. I had one with stripy legs too called Looby Lou. My Mother knitted one for my son when he was tiddly, it was one of those sad clowns. I updated it to Harry Potter in later years. Thanks for the visit BJ#94

I love the way you can make such lovely socks - and Leftover Leo too! You've made me feel sad that you can't get to Paperchase - I resisted more paper products but got some lovely journaling pens! Number 3 son occasionally treats me to a voucher to spend - he knows how I love to go in there! Have a great week, Chrisx 79

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Oatmeal cookies are my all time favorite cookie/cake/pastry/yummy treat. I wondered who the poor soul with the needle stabbed into him was. The dolly with the striped legs sure looks cute. Happy creating!
