Well, the last time I played at "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday" was week number 196 - back in March 2014! It seems perfect that my decision to start blogging again should open with a WOYWW day :) I do believe I will be poster number 37 :)
So... My terribly untidy, disorganised work space is here...
So many unfinished projects - from star-making and wreath constructing, to choker finishing and rooting a reborn dolls head! Also including Polo mints for the dog and music for my entertainment and sanity! lol
The origami stars started out as a challenge from my niece Charmaine - can you do this? she asked - knowing full well I'd drop everything, get out my Christmas papers and start folding! The necklace chokers were lace tatted by my wonderful mum - I just have to put fittings on them, and a little cameo. On the far right are the cones I rolled ready to make another wreath - I make them exclusively for the "Boutique Village" in Southampton :)
Ah, yes... rooting a dolls head with mohair - such a time-consuming, annoying, fiddly job. Which is why it's still not done after weeks of laying there creepily waiting to be finished, so the head can be finally attached to the body and the reborn doll sold on to someone who'll keep her and treasure her forever (yes, there are plenty of people - all ages and genders - who pay good money for a well-made lifelike doll).
