WOYWW - Lots of drawing and coloring

It's Wednesday.  I missed last week and actually felt withdrawals.... glad to be here this week! This blog hop is a total blast.  It all starts at Julia's blog Stamping Ground.  This is a great way to visit craft spaces all over the world.  You won't be disappointed.  

I just returned from a road trip to Colorado.  It was the perfect break -- lots of knitting and reading.  Add a few naps and it was heaven.  I completed my first set of wristlets.  What do you think?
knitted in the round - love these!
My workdesk is quite orderly - at least for me!  I've started the ATCs for the WOYWW anniversary swap.  If you are interested in swapping please email me at  505whimsygirl@gmail.com with your home address.   

A few of you mentioned that my doodly bird would make a cute stamp -- so I've drawn the doodly bird for the swap.  I've been busy coloring them in.  So, mine will be simple but made from the heart.
Please leave your number with your comment.  I try very had to visit everyone that visits me and also those that end in the same number as me.  After that then I randomly select others to peek in on.

I do like your idea of random numbers, I start at the beginning and the end and try to work up from there, but mostly miss those in the middle, not a great way to do it I know. Your birds are sweet. Love the wristlets, they are really popular here in the UK. Happy WOYWW, Anne #18

Ooh! Love the wristlets. I keep telling hubby that I want sleeves (like longer wristlets). They would be perfect for when the air conditioning gets too cold for bare arms and its still too warm for a full on sweater. He probably just rolls his eyes. The ATCs are looking good. I confess to not getting mine together yet. Its on the short list of things to do. Luckily I have the next 5 days off... playtime! If I get sick (what happened the last few times I've days off) someone is going get a whupping. Dunno who yet, but there will be full on violence!

Simplest is so often the best :) I like your ATCs very much! I simply haven't had the time recently to create stuff so that's why I'm doing the giveaway instead! Great knitting btw, lovely colours.

Rachel K said...

Thank you so much for stopping by. If you do try digital collages, you don't need any fancy programs: I do mine in Word and Pages (on Mac). Nothing fancy about that!

Your bird is gorgeous. And never downplay the joy of simplicity. In art it's a powerful force.

Love your doodly bird, so cute! Thanks for sharing and belated Happy Woyww : ) Liz at 131 x

Queen Lightwell said...

Your doodly bird is awesome! Now, are you a papercrafter who dabbles in knitting or a knitter who dabbles in papercrafting? Or some mystical perfect mixture of the two!? :)
Thanks for stopping by my blog and admiring my bows/sassy embellies...I hope you get a craft room soon. And pegboard, too! :)
