WOYWW

Hi WOYWW snoopers.... c'mon in!

The Viking has done with guarding and keeping things secret....and no, sorry.... still can't show you what the heck was under his care.  But, now, all of a sudden he wants attention.  Seems he has tidied and cleared away most of my desk actually.  Good thing, because I needed some help.  Soon it'll be totally packed away in preparation for our renovation.















He is barking commands at me in some language I don't understand.... but, finally I figured out it is something about his scratty friend here who's lost an eye... needs surgery.... ... or somehow they think I should just re-insert the thing......















Well actually, it is my fault.  I never did actually stitch the eyes in when I was completing the poor little guy...a very bad habit of mine.  Almost every single bear, doll or rabbit, in this case... needs some little thing fixing, finishing or fastening.... I get them to the photographing stage and then.....that's it.  They just sit there and somehow I forget they still need finishing.

Sigh.... I'm a dirty, rotten, procrastinator.....it's in my nature....

But, not today.... Olaf is insisting...















As a matter of fact...he is really getting up in my face about it all.... sheeesh....















That's it....I'm off to get my upholstery thread and permanently stitch in some eyes.... not only for poor Scratty Eddy...but, at least two other characters... and, maybe I'll just finish up some stuffing openings on a few other guys while I'm at it .......yeh...that's it.  It'll make me feel good.
Now where did they put the darn eye? ...

oh.... alright...I see it....















How would you like to see what dozens of other crafters are up to?  Check out the list over at Julie's blog.... surf around and have a peek at other desks and worktables.... some fun stuff to see...

Nothing like a good dose of procrastination - leaves you free to do other things ;D)
I'm sure Scratty will be very happy to receive the second eye!
Hmmm Olaf takes his job seriously doesn't he. Love your posts Vee. Cheers for now xx

Didn't get round to any desks yesterday as I was out, gallivanting, so catching up a bit this morning.

You have a great blog, amusing and lots of gorgeous work to look at (am now following) and I adore the cute and wistful looking little bear in your header.

Thanks for calling by yesterday - much appreciated.

Had a great chortle at that Olaf, I do like the scratty kid with long ears. Do give him an eye. That long wink must be tiring. Thanks for leaving a message.
BTW the spider's gone, set up home somewhere else. There's plenty of space.
Cheers,
