Firstly apologies Julia leader of the WOYWW Stamping Ground.
No desk on show today - just the results of a busy few hours of crafting at the old work table...
My nephew's fiancee starts teaching in September and asked me if I could make her a Katie Morag sock dolly. Well of course I could and what a pleasure to make a gift for someone just about to begin her chosen career.
I decided Katie also needed a nice big story sack so that all the resources can be kept together in one place - story books, maps, games and activities etc.
So with a little help from Annie on fun day Monday, I created this strong linen sack - of course a plain bag would be boring so I added a little seaside collage and Katie's name in tartan writing.
I think G will love it.
But then, I got to thinking about thetwo other young teachers working alongside G and decided maybe they would also like a little Katie......
If the extra two are unwanted I will pop them in the blog shop as I am sure someone will be wanting a little Katie looky likey. Funny how each one is different and almost has a little personality already.
Now wasn't that nicer than seeing my scruffy old table.
OK - now to tidy up that sewing room and table, so that I feel able to expose all next week. I just can't craft and create and keep the room tidy at the same time. AND I can hear Annie muttering that I am also quite good at turning her room upside down and getting glue all over her ironing board too!! Blushing and hiding my head in shame here!!!
Have a good WOYWW and thanks to all for your good wishes to M. She is a happy girl!
