WOYWW

Good morning all and welcome back!
I have been missing from WOYWW for a couple of weeks due to pressure of work!! lol

It has just seemed to be a hectic time with preparing for Ben's birthday party and then the poor little thing was poorly and couldn't go to his proper party with all his buddies so we had family tea here.
So my table hasn't seen much action by me.


 I did manage to mount the little sheepy brooches and pendants that Tilly finished.
They are all ready to go into bags and then they will be delivered to the local shops she is helping to stock.

My little dollies are all packed ready for their new little friends - lots of little birthdays for Ben's little girl friends.

AND lastly wasn't it a most beautiful sunset last night.....


Short and sweet but I really wanted to join in this week.
Thanks for calling by.

Friday smile - Clematis Josephine


Just a little photo of the one and only bloom this year on Clematis Josephine!
Annie bought it for my birthday and it has settled in nicely.
I hope it runs riot and covers my fence next year!!

Join Annie for more Friday smiles over on "A stitch in time" blog.

Have a great weekend.

Better late than never!
Welcome to my work table - this week has been mostly doll/teddy clothes week.
Ben's teddy needed a few bits and bobs for his holidays so he now has a T shirt and shorts, nappy and holiday bag.
I have also been finishing off my little dollies outfits including a sleepsuit, nappy and knitted cardi. I still have a few more to finish ready to go in the little birthday bags.

The rest of my week has been spent mounting pictures etc for Tilly Tea Dance and then we went over to The Quirky Fox gift shop in Llangollen to deliver them. It's a beautiful little shop/gallery and we were met with a very warm welcome by one of the owners who loved Tilly's work.

So that's it for this week - short and sweet.
Join in with the mad blog hop over at Julia's Stamping Ground.

Thank you for calling by - a big hug to all who need one!!

Good morning all!
This is my desk today until Maxine arrives to sort and clear. She has had 2 fab days at Acton Scott and has 2 more this weekend - then we will get our room in order!

We really need to make space as she has this new toy to play on

We decided it would be handy if she had one of her own and I found this one on ebay. It is really brilliant and the seller packaged it perfectly and even included some books and some wool.

My only crafty activity for this week has been the finishing off of a couple of twiddlemuffs and some picture mounting for Tilly.

Well that's it for this week - I hope I can get round your desks a bit faster this week.
Thanks for calling by and leaving lovely comments.

Have a great week.

I think my table is all set for some finishing off jobs for Tilly Tea Dance.


She left a pile of beautiful little dumfed pictures for mounting and some teeny tiny embroidered inchies all ready to be attached to silver pendant blanks.
So, it looks like I will be busy later this morning - firstly I have to nip over to baby sit Ben while Maxine has her hair cut.
Then, wahoo - a birthday party this afternoon! With a bit of luck and fine weather it might be tea in my school friend's garden with friends and family - perfect!

If you feel like joining in with our workdesk show and tell, then pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and share your desk with a few like minded crafters.

Have a great week.
Thanks for calling by.
