WOYWW

Good morning all - bright but cloudy up here today!
I am late getting my post organised today, so I am here at the computer in my dressing gown with a coffee (very unusual for me as I am always up, showered and dressed before I do anything each day).
So just a quick post with a couple of pictures of my table yesterday.


M came over for a chill out crafting day.
She has two little projects on the go - gorgeous bunting made with cream fabric trimmed with vintage crochet bits and bobs............. 
and here she is with hundreds of fab buttons decorating little, pale grey, chenille cushions with a heartful!

We had a fab day of crafting and laughter. She is a joy to be with and we make yet another great team.

Crafters of the world unite!
I am sure it would be a nicer place if everyone crafted together now and then!

Funday Monday was fun with Wipso too. We  bagged lots more dresses from the gorgeous fabric Twiggy and Karen sent us this week. We then set to and made 5 dresses between us during the afternoon.
I made two little dresses from Karen's fabric ......
A pretty little Laura Ashley print with a tiny pocket and a big flower!










Another tiny print, trimmed with red.

Both dresses look so sweet. Thanks Karen for the fabric.
I brought a few more home which I will be sewing later this week.







Right - now I need to post this and link to the lovely Julia's Stamping Ground. Julia and our WOYWW blog friends said such nice things about me and Wispo this week, I shall enjoy whizzing round a few desks to thank them for their kindness. See you soon!! x Jo

Your little extra touches like the trims/pockets make all the difference to these pretty dresses. I can see some little girl loving them xxxx

Love bunting too - looks so cute and is fun and easy to make. The dresses are so cute - a great skill is dressmaking! My Mum used to do it when we were kids and of course we hated it then, now it's a much sought after skill...!!! Enjoy WOYWW!

Your dresses are really pretty especially the yellow one. Keep up the good work. I have jumped on the band wagon as I have some dresses of mine that I no long wear that will make into some super little ones. Hugs Mrs A. #85.

Lovely bunting - I'm hoping that, with all the lovely vintage bits and bobs on it, it will only be hung indoors! The dresses are as always little stunners. Here's to another good week for you. Elizabeth x #60

Best crafting happens when I do it with others, the Mojo just seems to flow so much better! Love those dresses!

What did you do to your sister?
Lovely projects going on there! How did you two manage to be next to each other then? Synchronised postings?

Beautiful bunting your daughter is making and so nice that you have a crafty pal in her too. Love the little dresses you and Wipso are making, well done to both of you.

Bunting and dresses are so lovely. Anne x

Doone said...

I am convinced if the looters mothers had taught them how to make things they would have less desire to steal...

making stuff together should be mandatory,

that bunting is going to be very lovely
