WOYWW #351

Roll Up! Roll Up! It's time for another round of....
What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!
Ms Julia at The Stamping Ground is our lovely host, and if you're unsure of what's going on, just pop along to her blog and all will be revealed!
So... my desk today:
is a complete mess!
I am trying to do so much all at once, that all I have achieved is a great big untidy space :D
I have a tray on the left that's filled with things I may need right now, and jobs I've yet to finish:
The problem is that, with so much going on at once, the tray is overflowing!
My wonderful friend (I really shouldn't call her that - she's more of a sister than a friend) Ms Lizzie, bought me the Gorilla glue for my birthday on Saturday - not a strange present at all, I promise - I really wanted it. She also made me the crates and veg you see, the tray of prawns on ice, the steaks in a tray, and so many other little items of dolls house food, I am quite overwhelmed!
I have finally finished the heads for the next five dolls house figures - from 'The Village Idiot' to 'The Grumpy Old Man', I am finding it quite interesting to see what emerges from the clay lol
I'm currently making dolls house onions - well, amongst other things. I haven't been well the last few days, so I am struggling to keep up with what I'd like to achieve. 
Well, that's my overflowing workspace - what's on yours?
Oh, and just to make things easier, in today's WOYWW pick, I am number 36 :)

Have A Wonderful Wednesday Everyone!

WOYWW #349

Ah, normality :) 
It's very under-rated, I think. 
After blood tests and more blood tests and fantastically funny allergic reactions to medications, it is finally less stressful to have a "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday"? post, hosted as always by the multi-talented Ms Julia :)
Today, I am number....33 for week #349
I am a little more organised today... not much - but a little :) I'm still making dolls house figures...
I have my much-needed coffee (cold, as always lol) and an almost-finished pack of Mrs Crimbles gluten-free macaroons. I swear there is some left in the pack. Oh, okay... there's just ONE left in the pack - but they are delicious :) 
Actually, the figures I'm making at the moment aren't for my dolls house. I have a slight problem with creating faces - I have little or no control over what faces 'appear' from the clay. So here I am thinking about the legs for my "Come Give Grandma A Kiss" figure, and all the limbs for the head of the smoking man figure (his cigarette is safely stowed away with my eyeballs).
Poor Miss Havisham still has no clothes, but at least she is complete :) The Woman In Black, Mrs Lovett, and Jacob Marley's Ghost all have their  head and limbs all finished, and need putting together and wigging where needed, before being clothed.
 My one-in-a-million amazing mum quickly crocheted me a little shawl for the kissy grandma - perfect in a bright pink to match her lips and nails :)
And finally, the eyeballs I have to make before starting any figurine... I am useless without my eyeballs lol.  They are stuck onto double sided sticky tape, along with any other tiny bits and pieces I don't want to lose. This is where the smoking man's cigarette is stashed :) All the cat hairs on the sticky strips aren't really important - the cat just likes to add to the collection for me every now and then :)
Well, that's it from my desk this week - and from my newly-tidied craft room. My desk is now in front of the window - bright sunlight (when shining) all day, and a lovely view to my garden (which is in dire need of mowing and sorting!).
I am now going back to listing items for sale on a certain well-known auction site.
Have a wonderful Wednesday - and the rest of the week!
