WOYWW

Happy Wednesday - to all our What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday friends - and anyone else who pops in to see what I am up to!!

This week I have been busy sewing & knitting and even helping childmind those gorgeous little twins. They are such little poppets.
Their mum asked if I could manage to make a couple more little cover ups for them this week. Well of course I can!! I found this cute spotty fabric in Watson & Thornton's in Shrewsbury. Perfect for the job.


My other little task was to make this pretty ivory satin horseshoe.
We have lots over in our blog shop - SistersCraftyCreations.
I made this one as a special request and added silk & satin flowers and tiny silvery beads.
I think it will make a nice keepsake don't you?



Lastly, in case you missed my last week's update on my little jumpers  -


All this lovely wool came from Linda and Lyn of KEMPS WOOLS who went home and found me a carrier bagful of odds and ends from their own supplies when they knew what I was doing for the "Fish and Chip" babies. Crafters are such a generous bunch aren't they. Thanks girls.

And here is what I have managed this week......

Annie now tells me that she has probably got another bag of wool coming from her craft suppliers. I think we shall be busy for months!! I am happy to knit in the evening - when my busy social life allows me (lol).

OK folks - join in the happy blog hop by following the link to Julia's Stamping Ground. All sorts of crafty folk meet up there on a Wednesday so pop over and see what they are up to this week.

Thanks to all my visitors last week - I love to read your comments and see what you have been busy with too.
Have a great week.
x Jo

That's great they bring you much more wool for knitting these small jumpers and caps. It's such a calming activity... knitting after a busy day. Thanks for sharing and hope you have much knitting time next week. xFranka #9

Gorgeous newsy post Jo, Ive loved it! Those baby cover ups look super and I bet you dont even use a pattern do you! Are they in towelling?

Gorgeous FnC sets, Ive started to stripe mine too as it gives me more interest when knitting them plus they look so fab and individual!

Keep up the good work!

Your sister made me splutter tea over all the keyboard!! That is soooo the best suggestion and I'm definitely going to use it :)
Love those little cover ups, I bet they save a load of mess. I could have done with those when my boys were small...actually, they could still do with them sometimes...esp after pizza!!
Hugs, LLJ # 33 xx

Honestly I don't know where you two find the time or energy! I sat down today at 1, and the next thing I knew it was 1.15 and I had cold tea on me. That is why I don't sit down.

Hello Jo, the jumpers are so cute ... after the little dresses, I think you've started a new craze among WOYWWers. And the baby smocks are just gorgeous. Many thanks for visiting earlier ... I've now finished crocheting the border and finishing of the ends so that's the pram cover completed ... all we need now is the new baby :) Hope you have a lovely creative week. Elizabeth x #113
