can only a mother (or maker) love this face?

I'm having such fun with these faces - these are a couple of the latest ones:When I'm in 'making for a show' mode, there is lots of the same kind of making going on, but I find I can turn things around fairly quickly and I'm quite focused - I actually have an excel spreadsheet task list on the go - with targets and everything. The day job is clearly getting to me.
The problem with this is that my blogging pics are very similar. Next week is 'brooches week' in the schedule and I'll be making a few more rosette style brooches so I'm looking forward for this.

Tomorrow I have more monsters to make, and on Sunday I'm off to legoland with my sister and her family for my nephews birthday.

Love that first face - he is hysterical.

Your new monsters are great and I love the photo on your last post of them all together!
You must have some great charity shops near you to be finding all those jumpers to felt. It seems to be 100% acrylic round here or nothing!!
Brooch week sounds fab - can't wait to see them!

ah-hah! another anal crafter is unearthed!! ;-)
I am very VERY impressed that your list making has worked up to the level of Excel Spreadsheet :-)
And it's obviously working well because you've made LOADS and the monsters are all fab...lovely lovely faces.

just seen this, and am now trying to work out how i can get down to london!, my other half is going down tomorrow with some of his students work in a van, but i'm not sure he can squeeze me and the kids in!

Both are brilliant faces - the first very goofy and funny and the second is just very cute! Have fun at legoland!

It's amazing how a few stitches can completely change and expression and character! Love your monsters and I'm very impressed with your spreadsheet approach to crafting! Lucy x
