WOYWW 103 - the one without the desk

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!

The birds in my garden use the pond to wash in every day and the soil in the wheel borrow is used as a 'sand' bath...for two years black birds nested in our garage, and what a racket they made if we tried to close it! (Only because we forgot they were there) Love the mask and, I want to see the dragon!!

Oops have I confused you?! Nothing worth sharing this week plus I'm trying to get back in the habit of looking at everyone elses posts first, lol

Fantastic pictures of your birdies! What a great mouse, can't wait to see it finished. Do we get to see the dragon too? I think from what I'm reading we are all experiencing some sort of difficulty with blogger of late.

Sarpreet said...

great workspace, Happy WOYWW 103, One more week to the 2nd anniversary, #16- look forward to the reveal of the PIF

You may not be showing us your desk this week but the piccies of the birds are a great substitute. Our garden birds are eating us out of house and home at the moment. The bird bath is out of action as one of our pups keeps sitting in it, usually when it needs cleaning - what a pong!

Love the pics of the birds. Mr Woodpecker looks like he is settling in! The drought has finally let up here. We got a total of 7 inches of rain the past couple weeks. YAY! Love the mouse! Are you also making the dragon? Thanks for sharing. Vickie #46
