I read a quite a few knitting blogs, and it seems that the abbreviation WIP (work in progress) is fairly common in knit blog vernacular. I think us crafters should embrace the term, too... I really enjoy reading about what people are in the process of making. There used to be a show your desk friday - anyone interested in starting up something like that again? So, in that spirit, a snapshot of my desk today:
1. Piles of cut out toys (these ones are bunnies). Alison has written before about the little piles she makes, and I can so, so relate. I also love to pile. These are for a wholesale order I am working on for 12 bunnies, cats and monkeys (yes, 12! Given that each toy takes me about 3-4 hours, it's going to take me quite some time to amass that many).
2. New fabric. Purchased last week after both Audrey and Matt were sick and everything in our house was breaking down as part of some much needed (ahem) fabric therapy.
3. A doll I am working on for Audrey. She (doll) has been sitting here body-less for almost a month now because I'm feeling very lukewarm about her. Not sure if this lass will ever be finished. I casually draped the gingham trim over her unsewn neck because headless dolls are such a creepy spectacle. Don't really think it helps decrease the creep, though.
4. Not exactly a work in progress as something that I'm staring at with much happiness. A bundle of wonderful fabric scraps (most of them much larger than scraps) sent as part of a swap with lovely Mindy of Juniper. Thanks so much again, Mindy, having this land on my doorstep yesterday was this fabric lover's dream come true.
