a WIP Wednesday

Seems like there’s a bit of a “work in progress-Wednesday” thing going on with the crafty blogs, so here’s what I’ve been fitting in every now and then.


You knew I was gonna come up with something like this one of these days, right!? It’s almost finished, and Alex made me drag it outside into the sunshine for a proper pic. Jessie (aka Flotsam) refused to sit on it but that’s because I used the sheep to model the blue hat yesterday, and not her, so she’s sulking.


I picked the stool up at some junk shop or other, with the idea of painting the legs and mosaicing the top. As far as I can remember, anyway. But I’m very pleased with my first yarnbomb effort and I’m starting to look at other things around here that might benefit from similar treatment. The couch? Bedside table? Jessie?

And I haven’t forgotten that midnight tonight is the cut-off time for picking someone’s name for the owl cushion give-away. It’s been such a fun and gratifying thing to do, I wish I could give everyone an owl!

Watch this space….  owl tog

    Jill you are a crochet maven; been laughing ever since the amazing stool appeared before my eyes. Looks like Pippa Longstocking changed into a stool.

      Well, I’d love to see the pics when you’ve done one :-) There’s loads of stuff on the internet to inspire you, and one of the nice things about ybing is that whatever you do is completely original! (as opposed to following instructions or someone else’s pattern). I have a few crochet flowers lying around and was thinking of sewing some on here and there…:-) You can also use up sample swatches and abandoned squares and half-finished scarves.
