What's on my desk Saturday?

I missed WOYWW this week as I hadn't anything to show.  What with getting ready for holidays, recovering from holidays, watching Olympics, recovering from Olympics and being a generally all-round lazy so-and-so crafting hasn't had much of a look in for quite a few weeks.  In fact my inks have probably dried up and my rubber stamps perished it's been that long since I did any stamping.  That's set to change though as I'm determined to get some done this week.

To ease myself in gradually I started a little art doll yesterday and finished her this morning.  Here is my work-tray....

Tatty old needlecase that I made at school, lots of seed beads and the finished doll.  I did some needle-felting to make the body in my favourite blues and greens and this time it was a success.  The first piece I made (see previous post) fell apart  when I took it off the foam block but then it was my first ever.  Good job I don't give up easily.

Here she is in close-up.

I know she only has legs but that's because she is (h)armless - can you tell I love puns?  Mr B thinks she looks creepy but then he has no taste ha ha.

She will be on her way to a good home soon as a little 'thank-you' .  Think I'm going to make another one just for me.

Good to be back - see you Wednesday.

Ann this is fab. I don't think she looks creepy, but I do think she's scowling at Mr. B, lol, x
