Whats on your work desk Wednesday 142

This is my work desk today. Actually it is my husband's which I borrow from time to time as mine is a pokey little place where I cannot work if I want to spread out and which I often do. Had to stop my doll half way to complete a little sketch and story that I have to send to someone. I had forgotton about it until a reminder was sent so I hurriedly did the sketch in pencil. Usually Choc approves of what I do but today as you can see he is turning his back to it all. He is certainly not approving my flitting from one project to the other. Now I will go and see what everyone else is up to . If you want to see where I am going just click here http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/  or click on the blog title it will take you to some wonderful blogs that are listed on Julie's blog.

P.S. I had removed the word verification as I do not like the present one at all. It is so difficult to read but the moment I turned the word verification off I started getting spam. So sorry everybody have had to turn it back on again.

WOYWW Wednesday

This is how my work surface is looking at the moment. I started cutting and sewing a pattern but had total loss of concentration I think. Twice I sewed the pieces wrong way round and it was not only the cold that was causing blueness all around me lol. So I left it to rest to come back to it later. Perhaps later today. It doesn't look like much but there is a doll in progress there.

Journal for me

The other day while I was doodling I suddenly thought of making a journal. I am no good at it so I thought I would just make it for myself. Do it as and when I please and not get stressed about it even if it is no good. So I thought of painting my dolls one by one. Not all the dolls but just the ones which have some significance or the other. So here is my first page with my first doll. I will remember it always and probably keep her always. She had got lost, so I thought and didn't see her for several years but I found her recently and I think to myself perhaps I need more than a pair of glasses to see lol! She was right there under my very nose all the time. I shall stick a piece of the fabric out of which I made her cloths. I may not be able to do it all the time but if I have it I shall stick it in the page.
So she started me on my dollmaking journey when I had just come out of a particularly stressful period in my life so she is very special to me also she makes me realise how far I have come.

Just doodling

I have been doodling a bit. I was trying to delete some photos of mine to make space for the others when I came across this one of shoe flowers so suddenly I felt like sketching it before deleting it.

 This one is of a leaf, yes it is a leaf and it doesn't look like one but I got this picture from Sandy's blog. She kindly gave permission to sketch it if someone wanted to so I decided to have a go.
I think I better get to back to my sewing though lol!
