WOYWW - 20 March

Happy WOYWW everyone!  (What's WOYWW?  Find out here!)  Well, after last week's aberration, where you actually caught me cooking (GASP!), normal-ish service has been resumed.  (By the way, the Red Nose cake pops sold like - well, hot cakes, so it was worth the effort - even if the kitchen did look like the shower at the Bates Motel after I'd finished decorating them).

On my workdesk today, you can see that I am finally finishing off a project I began around August.  The little red hat is adapted from a design by Kim Costello (see here for details).  If you know about the Red Hat Society, you will not be surprised that I've added a purple glitter ribbon and purple feathers (coloured with my Spectrum Noirs).  If you've never heard of the Red Hat ladies, you can find out more here.  I'm making a nice little display stand out of a CD and a cardboard packaging tube.  The pots you can see there contain "surplus" bits that will probably feature on the finished item.  I haven't decided yet!

So now I'm off to see what everyone else is up to.  Thank you very much for your visit;  I really do appreciate everyone who drops by.  Hope you enjoyed yourself - come back any time, you're very welcome!
