WOYWW: Ephemera and Baby Wear



"It's the most curious time of the week..."

It's the day when crafters go blog hopping amongst the desks of others, hoping to see something novel, inspiring, or simply more messy than their own desk.  For more details, see Fair Julia's blog over at Stamping Ground.  

And on my own desk, a lovely bundle of ephemera.  I don't know if it's something to do with more snow on the way, but I have an urge to make travel journals, and this pile of ephemera has tickets aplenty.



And whilst not exactly on my own desk, I thought I should share what my lovely mum has been working on.  Inspired by successfully transforming Grumpy the dwarf into dashing Della the beautiful elf for the Godchildren's Elf School (see various posts passim if this is new to you), she's picked up the crochet hooks.  So far she's made some lovely baby hats (primrose and bluebell shown above) and she's starting on a pattern for a gorgeous hedgehog in autumnal eyelash wool.

Happy WOYWW, and may your desks be full of what pleases you.

  16. What a cute little bonnet.
    I used to crochet but haven’t done any for ages, apart from edging some Christmas ornaments that were to go on a Advent Wall Hanging for a children’s hospice a couple of years back.
    Might just have to dig out my hooks!

  17. My mum was a crocheter too, mainly those little doily things everyone had on their tables in the 70's! The hedgie sounds really cute and I like the bags of items on your desk this week.
