Another week has swung by, and now we only have one more week before the great WOYWW PIF. Yay! And as I expect a few desks will be this week - sorry, mine's a no-show because it has PIF-in-progress upon it. First up though, an apology to all who visited me and to all those I didn't get round to. I've had problems at work AND at home with logging into Blogger - I've been able to leave comments on a couple of blogs, but half the time it just wanted to call me "Anonymous". Charming! I hate anonymous comments on my blog, so I won't leave them myself. I like folks to know who I am!
Anyway, for the uninitiated, WOYWW can be found here, the brainchild of the delightful and daring Mrs Dunnit. Our one and only Maitre d'esk. Hehehehehe
Well, as I can't show you my actual desk, I'll bring you up to date with a couple of WIPs instead. First up is George the Mouse. Remember the dodgy looking mask from a couple of weeks ago? Well, not so much mask as hat. Well, here is how he looks currently. This week he'll have a coat or two of paint, and then be ready for his first performance on Saturday. and if you think he's cute, you should see the dragon that goes with him!
Also, here's the latest on my hardanger piece. As you can see, it's progressing slowly, but progressing it is. I figured this time I would work all the kloster blocks on the remaining three sections before cutting and doing the woven and wrapped bars. Gobbledegook to a lot of you, I know, but someone out there knows what I mean!
Lastly, I just want to share a couple of pics from the garden - I finally managed to get a pic of Mr Woodpecker on the birdfeeder outside the kitchen window! In fact, I got several but figured this one was sweet, with him eyeing up the peanuts there just to the left....
....before taking a leap and grabbing a nut before flying off again:
He's also been slaking his thirst in the water bowl - a sure sign that his usual haunts for water are drying up in this drought...
Also visiting us are several greenfinches - this evening (Tuesday as I type this) we spotted them on the feeder in the late evening sunshine, and the sun just made the green feathers sing out. Bless 'em!
I'm off - catch you on the hop! I'm off to see which desks will allow me to comment this week!
