 I am chuckling to myself today - I think my table is the same as last week but with an extra layer on top!!!!

So - please enjoy a good root around - there's bunting, half made Christmas card collages, a picture  frame waiting to be filled, a sketch book waiting for a cover and some pretty vintage embroidery.

Below is my spare bed covered with goodies ready for the craft fair next week......
Such pretty bits and bobs - fabric collages, cards, brooches, needlefelted pictures, wedding bunting and draught excluders

AND a wonderful selection of gorgeous cushions - some with sequins, some velour with hearts filled with buttons and some great patchwork ones.

 If you live anywhere close enough, why not come and see us at
Marton Village Hall Craft Fair
Saturday 24th November
10am - 4 pm
(About 18 miles from Shrewsbury on the B4386). 
We would love to see you and I am sure there will be lots of lovely things at the fair - perfect Christmas gifts.

Lastly, this beautiful little angel came through my letterbox yesterday - she flew all the way from Jozarty.
Her name is Nitika and she is the angel of precious stones. Won't she just look perfect on my tree this Christmas. She even came with those pretty little ribbons too - I shall put those to good use I am sure!!
Thanks lots Jo. I hope my little angel is winging her way to you today and arrives safely with you soon.

OK folks - thanks for visiting - you are such a nice bunch. I really enjoy popping over to your workdesk to see what you have been up to.

Hope we see you at the craft fair!!
x Jo

Wow! you have been so busy to get so well stocked and I do hope you do really well at the craft fair. You could do one all to yourself with all those lovely makes. Good luck!.
I'm so pleased your angel Nikita has landed in her new home ... I hope she looks after you and brings joy and peace for a happy Christmas.
Love Jo x

Good Luck with the craft fair! Pity we are heading in the opposite direction this weekend! By the look of all those lovelies you won't have any trouble though! Chrisx 91

Laurart said...

Lovely! I was very interested in seeing the wedding bunting. I made my own for my wedding this summer and after making 100m's of it I never want to make any ever again - But I enjoy seeing bunting others have made!
Happy WOYWW xxx Laura #51

Hullo there Jo I did have a chuckle at you saying your desk is the same as last week with another layer on top.. think we all go through that stage..and then go argh! and clean up..
I wonder what you do with lovely old embroidery have seen some folks cut it up and alter it - is this what you do?? I buy it and use it I love it too much to do otherwise..
Many thanks for popping over and for sharing ~ Happy WOYWW! Shaz in Oz.x #1
