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!

She's fabulous, what a wonderful doll (and a talented creater) look forward to her new 'slimming' skirt.

Thank you so much for the visit, Barbara Diane! I'm delighted to return to your blog where I haven't checked in for a while. Your doll is a hoot and a half! I absolutely LOVE her!!

You have nailed we "mature" ladies with those spreading hips and those bosom balloons! Cracks me UP!! Oh, my word, I would get nothing else done but play with her all darn day. Maybe that's why you had to "wait" to finish her until you had the time to give her your full attention and write her story for her.

It's just wonderful! I've subscribed so I don't miss any future episodes! Darnell #19

Thanks for your earlier visit, I am only just catching up. Cindy
