Another week, another Wednesday!
I hope you all had a lovely Easter.
It was a bit chilly but we had a fun day helping M finish her garden and then we had a bit of retail therapy yesterday. (A few birthday treats for M.)
Today my table is all neat and tidy.

I seem to have had so many busy sewing weeks that I decided a good tidy up was in order (it won't last!). So... just a few patterns waiting to be made up.
A 60's dress for M for her Jubilee celebration, pinafores for the 3 girls for the wedding reception and a dress for me.
This week is a knitting week -  I am going to knit a few items for the "Fish & Chip" babies - see more here.
Do you think this lot might be useful?
The suggestion is dark colours and maybe stripes - practical colours, as the little jumpers and beanie hats may never be washed!

Lastly, the little Peppa Pig card that I "dumfed" with wools and felt for Annie's grandee. Cute!

So - that's me for this week.
Have a great week and enjoy the blog hop.
Pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and join us.

That Peppa is fantastic, the 3 year old is on my lap and he was most impressed. I'm glad someone is having a tidy week, I'm not!

Managed around 50 or so desks yesterday so trying to get round a few more this afternoon.

Love Peppa Pig, she used to be my GSon's favourite cartoon (watched every one at least 56 times).

Simplicity patterns take me back a bit. I used to make all my own clothes in my teens, probably had this one myself, and bought all my patterns from Woolworths.

Your dumfed Peppa Pig is terrific and your desk looked incredibly tidy on Wednesday. Those colours look perfect for the knitting and the pattern looks super quick, knowing you, you'll have finished at least one wee sweater by now :) I've picked up a crochet hook for the first time in eons this week ... I think it's catching :) Elizabeth x #26
