The craft fairy and WOYWW.

Well today, dear WOYWWers, the little craft fairy has been busy on my table!!
On Saturday Wipso and I went off to the craft fair, leaving behind daughter M for an hour or two. She has very little time to craft in her busy working week, so, I guess leaving her in my craft room was a great temptation!! When I came home, she had gone back to town and left these goodies for me to consider!!!
I think she would like me to run up a couple of cushions so, I may do just that, this snowy afternoon.



My window ledge is littered with gorgeous crochet flowers just waiting to be added to a crafty project or two. Any ideas? I have used some for my brooches in the blog shop.


Now the pic above was the little birdy Wipso had on her bird table this week!! lol - a huge, fluffed up male pheasant. He was very brave too, even when the three dogs were allowed out, he just hid under the bushes and kept very still! All three dogs went straight past him and didn't seem to notice him.


And lastly, I think little Scruffy decided to choose his Christmas tree today. He is outside eyeing up my tiny fir tree in the snow and has his little clippers in his duffle bag at the ready.......Oh no! Tim - ber!!!!!!!

Ha - and now I expect I will have to help him carry it in and decorate it!!!

OK - enough Twiglet madness - hop over to Julia's blog if you want to join in with the WOYWW fun.
Thanks for calling - take a look at our earlier posts if you want to know more about our Christmas crafty activities! Or pop over to the blog shop and check out our new goodies.

Love all the lacy gorgeousness. Scruffy has chosen a lovely little tree but I have a feeling you will have to help decorate it. Have fun.

Morning Jo
Hope the tree is safely inside by now! Loved your post & catching up with your blog. Your hotwater bottle covers look beautiful. :)Ooh & the little ♥'s look fab. Sounds like you had lots of fun at the fair too. :)
Regards the mirror on my dresser I used Claudine Hellmuth Studio semi-gloss acrylic paint in classic teal to paint my mirror.. it was quite bright so then I just dry brushed some white over the top to tone it down a bit. (Have a practice first!)
Hope you are keeping warm & safe in this weather.xx
Sorry for not calling sooner. Just looking at the screen sends me dizzy :( I'm wearing my reading glasses at the moment & it's not too bad.. back to the docs on Friday.
Bye for now, hugs Gez.xx

It is nice to have little crafty fairies sitting at your work table and leaving something behind. When my "little fairy" approaches my table, I usually am on the search for something later - scissors, adhesive, punch...

Angie said...

so beautiful ....how I wish I could crochet. I used to do chunky stuff ...granny blankets and waistcoats back in the '70s ...so I got a needle some wool and instructions from the net and off I went ....disaster ...all fingers and thumbs and hopeless tension ...ho hum.

BumbleVee said...

some day.... probably in the distant future.... I would like to learn to crochet and make some tiny hats for my little bears.... but, I'm such a sloth. .. never will get around to many of the things I think I should do....I need a magic fairy to wave her wand and give me abundant energy!

Why is it that reading your blog makes me want to pick up the crochet hook again? (I almost said "needles", ha ha, that would have shown you how long it's been!) Those flowers are sooo pretty.... and I love your little guy in the snow.
Thx for stopping by. Yesterday, I posted The Card. Have a toasty day!

I adore seeing pheasants in the snow - we have quite a few around here too but my dog, Sam, does notice them and chases them through the fields (he has never caught one, though!!)
