WOYWW - a little romance in the air!

Romance?
Yes, and it's not even Valentine's Day yet.
I am afraid little Scruffy has fallen in love.

After a busy Fun day Monday, I returned home with my new little sock doll, Dusty.
I popped her in the sewing room and now look at the two of them - all snuggled up and cosy round the sewing machine. Spring must be in the air!
Dusty need reminding not to flash her knickers - even if they are made with Wipso's best embroidered cotton! She thinks she's the bees knees with her little shoulder bag, sporting a pale blue "dumfed" flower and a snazzy, little hat with a felt rose on the side. Poor Scruffy is getting all hot and bothered!


My other little task was, to make two little brooches to go with the two hats that I made last week. I think they look pretty cute and hope the two youngsters who will be wearing them, think the same.

I am meeting up with old friends in Shrewsbury today, for lunch and a walk by the river. I just hope the weather improves as it's been rather cold, wet and gloomy lately.
Last week (see tulip pic on last post) was cold but bright and frosty - I prefer that don't you?
OK folks - please keep an eye on those two as you pass by. I don't want them getting up to mischief!
Thanks to everyone who called here last week and left lovely comments. I will try to get round a few more of you this week.
Have fun and if you don't know what this is all about then follow the link to Julia's blog and all will become clear.

Oh I just love this post - Scruffy must be going mad about Dusty - she sure is fancy shmancy! So are the hats!
Have a lovely day out in Shrewsbury (wherever that is)!
Lost of hugs,

Tina Gilmore said...

Jo, I had a right good giggle at dusty and scruffy's antics, i love your blog. Thank you so much for the award,just have to figure out what i need to do now, being the technophobe i am. Loving WOYWW, Speak to you soon.

Mrs A. said...

I think Scruffy should just "sock it" to her straight away and pop the question. They are obviously made for one another.
Hope you enjoyed Shrewsbury and you tried a biscuit or two whilst there.

Sorry I didn't visit last week. But I'm glad I'm here now, because I can watch Scruffy court Dusty. And of course this gave me a big grin which I needed right now. Happy belated WOYWW from #10.
