This quote says it all for me:
"I do not understand how anyone can live without one small place of enchantment to turn to."
My small place is my studio area in the corner of my living room. My Whimcees are all the dolls, bears and other creatures that I sew from cloth or sculpt from clay, the cards and papercraft projects that I create.
It is with this blog I hope to share my world created in my small space.

WOYW? Wednesday - Trial and Error
Today is What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday - and for the little doll and me it was trial and error. I had finished her blouse and she was so happy with it! All stitching and a pretty pattern in a beautiful blue.
So it was on to the rest of her outfit - it was to be for a very special occasion so we had to get it just right. I had given the little doll a choice of the fabric and she had chosen this lovely green to match the green leaves in the blouse print. Anxiously she awaited her first fitting - but when she looked in the mirror I could tell she was sad.
"I don't mean to be rude" she said, "but I look a bit fat". It was true. "It just doesn't fit well" I said. "I think it's the fabric. Should we start again with a thinner fabric - and maybe a different color to match your blouse?"
"Oh, could we?" she asked with eyes shining again and hope in her voice. "Of course." I said.
Go to visit Julia Dunnit's "Stamping Ground" blog to see what is happening this week on WOYW? There are already 110 bloggers taking part this morning and Julia's workdesk with the most wonderful window view is full of creativity!
Thank you for visiting my blog today! Tomorrow the little doll has her outfit for the special occasion and her name. Wishing you a great day!
