WOYWW


 Good morning all!
It's been a bit chilly over here on the Welsh border but as yet, not much snow.
My table is covered with woolly bits and bobs today. I am going to make some funky bags and I am using some re-cycled felted wool and some furnishing fabric. I will show and tell once I get going with them.

On the left is a tote bag that I made from furnishing velvet. The gorgeous little brooch was a gift from our blogging buddy in the Phillipines - Patsy of Create with Joy and everyone who sees it comments on it.

The cute little dollies are a couple of my sock dolls who are lounging round waiting for me to take their picture so that they can go back in the shop.

I took them out into the garden for their snaps......



This one is Dotty..

I think Dotty might have a curly hair-do before she goes back in the shop.













And this one is Tottie.....

She looks cosy in her woolly outfit with her hat, scarf and little shoulder bag.












Lastly, here is my little orchid that for no apparent reason throws out these gorgeous little blooms occasionally. Isn't it pretty - and blue sky behind too!

Have a great week.
It is always lovely to have so many folks popping in to see what I have been up to.
Don't forget to checkout the bargains and the Valentine's shelf in our Sisters Crafty Creations shop.

x Jo

The demands on a sock dolly model!
It's a bit cold for sitting outside for photos girls.....I do hope you got a hot cup of drinking chocolate when she took you back in.
Hugs,

Sara Jansen said...

The dolls seem to be quite at home posing...what good girls they are. And so cute....Your rainbow photo is captivating. I love those arches of color no matter when or where they appear. We seem to have a lot of them in Alaska during the summer and they never fail to stop me in my tracks, just as your photo did. Hope you have a lovely week.

Your sock dollies are so cute and so good with their modelling work. I have managed to keep my latest orchids going for the last six months which is a record for me. Hope you are not snowed in over there on the borders. Have a good week. xx Maggie #37

Neet said...

Those little ones are so adorable (cannot call them dolls, they are little people) and Tottie looks so cute wrapped up like that.
Gorgeous orchid too - I got one bought not long ago so it went to stay with a friend whilst I am on holiday. Well wrapped up on its journey too.
Thanks for sharing
Hugs, Neet xx 7
