 I've been mostly working on a box and card set (the muslin of it is in the right hand side). The beads in the upper left are for a swap I'm working on.(Forgot to say my Gypsy (portable design device for the Cricut) is not upside down because I'm a leftie. The OCD part of me blocks out the upside down label on the sleeve in person lol).

 I added some flowers to the face of the clock. Am I the only one who has trouble finishing a project even months later?

 My Dancing Umbrella Man card. Made with two cuts the legs swing from side to side. The sentiment says Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain. The judge said she loved the the moveable legs.

 My two skeins of novelty yarn.

A close up of all the slubby bits, basically winding the purple/pink/orange strand a few times in a spot every 3 to eight inches.

If you are wondering what's all this WOYWW, then head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a gander. Better yet, snap a picture of your workdesk and join in the fun :D.

Your yarn is gorgeous. Adorable, in fact. I really like the closeup of the skein with all its nubs.

I guess you are a bit like me and don't know when to stop. I like that clock better every time I see it. I don't think you can get too much bling on it! And of course, your Umbrella Man is very sweet.

Love everything! And I too...am a project starter and not a finisher. I'm terrible about starting things that I never finish!

oh, I just love the altered alarm clock, looks like it should be in Alice in Wonderland, thanks for showing a close up of it. How did you like being in the fair? I've never done that, but it's on my bucket list!

I really love that clock and I'm a lefty too, so I know how it feels to turn things upside down. That card is fabulous, I love the dangly legs.
Have a great week.
