Woyww #224 - Floor Fings

Today I am joining in with What's on your Workdesk Wednesday. I am not at my usual desk though, as I am cold. I have sat myself downstairs in front of the fire and emptied my bag onto the floor.

So...... A wad of stuffing ready to stuff my little rag doll. A ball of purplish wool for sewing up part of the rag doll. Leftover Leo minus his scarf (do you ike his slightly permed hair?). Another ball of wool making Leo's scarf. Stripey legs of the rag doll. A stuffing stix which fell out of the stuffing bag (I never knew I had one and it will be so useful). A ball of cream wool (not sure why that is there!). Leo's scarf in the middle of being knitted. The rag doll's dress. So annoyed that I ran out of wool with just five rows left so am thinking I might add a button in a contrasting colour and see if I can get away with it. There is a head and some limbs too which need sewing up. I did start a sock last week but I have no idea where it is, maybe on my cold desk!

Right, that's me done. It is actually still Tuesday evening here (Canada) so I am watching the Great British Bake Off whilst eating my homemade cookies and zucchini loaf, yum yum. No photos of it today, sorry.

Sitting on the floor with the fire, what're you going to do when it get's cold then??! Hope you can find all your bits when it comes to sewing the right part on the doll. Love the little jumper with the purple shoulder. How about making a tiny purple pocket to go on the lower left side of the dress to balance it out? You're number 15 this week, Julia posted early and I was watching the telly!

I laughed at the 'slightly permed hair' !! Aah, that takes me back to the 80's, when I spent loadsa money on having Big Hair....which I adored..... Happy days!!
I think Brenda's suggestion of the little purple pocket is good. The alternative is to undo the dress back to a safe point and do the whole section in a contrast colour.

For some reason my puter refuses to let me look at your photo. Very rude, because it sounds so interesting!

I hope your cold gets better - next to the fire is the best place for you I'd say.

I've always fancied the idea of either living in or visiting Canada. I think I'd visit Newfloundland.

Your rag doll is so sweet! Such a shame about running out of yarn but I wouldn't know if you hadn't said. I love her hair! MMx #107

I wish I could sit on the floor, but a few minutes and I would be in agony and have to get up, if I could get down in the first place!

I was looking for my wadding for a little owl I started to crochet, couldn't immediately find it so gave up, I must go look again.
