WOYWW #132......

I thought I'd participate in What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday hosted by The Stamping Ground.

So here goes my first post.....here is what is on my workdesk today........



I'm still working on a pattern by Frowning Francis called Steampunk Crow for the Cloth Doll Artistry Steampunk Challenge.

This is what he is supposed to look like according to the pattern but of course I'm making my own version.

I hit a small road bump though....I have no burnt orange paint for the beak...eeeek. I cannot believe that I have don't have any orange paint!!!!

So there he sits:(

In the meantime, I have started a small friend for him that I might have ride on his back....a mouse...a rat....hmmmm? ...I'm not sure:)


My desk looks pretty tidy today......which doesn't happen very often:)


Well I think I did that okay....whew.

Go over and see all the other desks...lots of interesting stuff going on..................

Hi Mrs A.:)

I tried mixing a gold with a red and it turned out flamigo coloured?...I have no yellow paint either because I threw out a whole bunch of really old paint recently. A trip to Michaels is needed I think:)
