WOYWW - lots of woolliness!!

Good morning all.
With a bit of luck this will upload all by itself and I can head down to Wipso's to enjoy - fun day Wednesday.
(We had a fun day Monday but with no crafting as we were baby sitting for P and L. - what fun!!!)
So, I am leaving you a pic of my desk as it was Tuesday.
Having finished my little bag that I blogged about last week, I tipped out all my felted woolly jumpers in an effort to gain some creative inspiration!! I love the finished crochet bag (on the left) and its now in the blog shop.
I want to make a few funky little bags with the woollies. One of the turquoise jumpers is already minus a cuff as I chopped it off to make a dress for P's little favourite cuddly Bagpus - " Meow".
I have a few ideas for little shoulder bags with lots of bold hand stitching, big buttons and brooches so watch this space!!

For all the card makers out there..... Here is my latest offering!  We have a golden wedding party to attend at the weekend so I have had the old machine out to make a little card. The silk flowers are free machined onto satin with gold lurex thread and then the centre is beaded with tiny golden beads.
Now, I am packing my bag ready for my trip to Wipso's........
Hopefully, I will have time to visit lots more WOYWWers today - you are such a lovely bunch - I do enjoy my Wednesday snoop! If you want to join in, then nip over to Julia's blog and check out the 130+ blogggers who share their workdesk every week.

That bag is gorgeous. Like Nikki, wool itches me, so you are lucky to be able to work with it.

Love the card. Circles are SO hard for me to cut. I'm so challenged when it comes to circles. Lovely card, though.
