WIP Wednesday 4 January 2017
I am still not used to writing 2017 so I must pay close attention. And welcome to the first WIP Wednesday post of the New Year. So lets get going.
Retirement Means got a little attention going from here
Looking forward to her head and face being more defined.
The Great Blue Heron got just enough attention that I could say I started, going from a blank piece of fabric to this.
It's the very top of his head.
And Stormy got the same minimal start.
It's the uppermost leaf on the left.
Nothing like starting with Krenik!
And I did get in some knitting time, from here
I need to sew up the skirt, add 2 tiny buttons and sew in the ends. It does fit the doll (first thing I checked after I cast off) so hopefully next week you will see her wearing it with either the matching hat or panties or, deep breath, maybe both.
My oldest UFO didn't get touched.
I had hoped to do more, but my craft partner/best friend's husband had a heart attack around supper time New Year's Eve and another one around 3 a.m. New Year's Day. He and Cynthia (thank goodness there was room for her) were med-evacced to Vancouver, St. Paul's Hospital, where he is being fast tracked for open heart surgery as he has several blocked arteries. Needless to say I am worried about them both and feeling so frustrated and helpless as they are 500 miles away by air, double that by road. Any crafting for the next little while will be something that doesn't take concentration.
