Ruby Ruby Ruby!

WOYWW2010 First things first ... apologies for last week's fiasco ... for those of you that missed it ... I did a stunt jump from chair to floor with my camera in hand ... then while laid sprawled on my back ... on the floor ... I took a second picture. Well ... all the action must have gone to my head ... because I then linked up to WOYWW ... way back to a post in September ... whoops ... so all that drama was for nothing ... I say nothing ... a big Thank you to those of you that eventually found the correct post. It was very much appreciated.

What am I blithering on about ... basically WOYWW ... and if that does n't ring any bells ... Hop along to here ... and Julia ... the glamorous keeper of the desks will tell all.

So ... Onto this week ... desk is very very messy ... in my defence I am working on some rather large projects and have had to lay them on my cutting table to fiddle around and place the finishing touches ... as you do ... and they are not for public viewing as yet.WOYWWa2010

I also wanted to introduce Ruby ... Is n't she magnificent? ... I found her in a skip in Olney ... a full sized Tailor's dummy ... she is indeed a 36DD and I have big plans for Ruby ... I am going to tattoo her with stamped images and dress her in Grungepaper ... then adorn her with Idea-ology ... I may even do a bit each Wednesday ... so you guys can get to know her as well as I do! John's not keen ... but I just know she will grow on him ... she is soooooooo easy going.

That is it from me ... Have a great Wednesday y'all

Laters!

Oh, I love Ruby. Who in the world is a double d with that figure? You Brits have better bodies than we in the States! Will love to see a bit of her each Wednesday. I've not worked with my one package of grungepaper I got for my birthday back in April, but I would have thought it would be too thick to make a proper cover. I know it will bend around Ruby's protrusions, though (grin). Happy WOYWW from no. 12 this week.

Helen said...

I can't wait to see how Ruby turns out!!!

Susan Allan said...

What an amazing find. If I had her she would be draped in grey velvet and jewels. I like your grunge idea, but isn't it good we are all so different in our creativity.
Have a great Wednesday

What a great find Linda - looking forward to seeing how Ruby develops (although she looks quite well developed at the moment anyway!)

Ann said...

Watch out as Ruby 'develops' over the weeks. As she can't answer back. she might become quite popular in the house ;)

Joanne said...

I can certainly see the large projects you are working on. If you know how to 'minimise', please let me know!!!!!!
Luv Joanne xx

voodoo vixen said...

Ruby of the 36DD.... and how did she end up with the name Ruby??? I can imagine her tatted and dolled up with grunge stuff - she will be fabbydozy!!

Twiglet said...

I think I should upcycle a bra for poor Ruby and maybe trim up the odd G string or two!

misteejay said...

Welcome to Ruby - look forward to seeing her a little more modest...LOL

Thankfully no more throwing yourself off chairs/desks whatever...had visions of coming on here to find a post stating "normal service will be resumed - after a trip to A&E"

Kym's Crafty Cards said...

Linda, what a busy looking desk. Oh what a find in Olney. I was brought up going to the antique shops in Olney as I grew up - now I can't even go in one - but to find something like this in a skip is amazing. Hello from "down the road". I'm a newbie to the WOYWW so please be gentle with me!! Best wishes, Kym (No 42)

Hope you are recovered from your jump to the floor! Ruby looks like a rather big project - looking forward to seeing your plans for her develope.

Julia Dunnit said...

I knew there would be an accident from overhead phot-ing, but didn't think it's be you! Hope you're really OK. Great, great idea for Ruby - would love to follow her progress. Would love to be that pert, too!
