Where did last week go?

Another Wednesday and time for a trip over to Julia's Stamping Ground to check out a few super crafters desks and see what everyone  has been up to.

Well, I almost just posted this as an "out of office" notice today!

Not much has been going on in my craft room so I thought you might like to meet my little owl doorstop that I was given at Christmas.
I love owls, so this was a very appropriate gift.
It was badly needed because, even though I kept promising to make one for myself, I didn't and was using a large reel of thread to hold my door open!

I have managed a tiny bit of sewing and some knitting but I gave both items away before I took a photo - hopeless memory!

So, here is just a sneaky peek at something I have been making for a friend's granddaughter. More pics next time.

Have a great week.
Thanks for popping in here to see what I have beeen up to.
It's lovely to hear from you and I will try to get back to you through the week.
x Jo

The amount of sewing you do in a week Jo I’m not surprised that you forget to take photos of some of it.

Hi Jo, loving your Mr Owl doorstop, he is a real beauty. For some reason when I make commission cards I never photograph them - don't know why, I guess I just forget too. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #34

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Oh blimey, Jo, I forget to take photos all the time! That's why I end up rabbiting on about everything and show pics of random things that are in my life....and that's just DH!!!!
your owl door stop is fab, though it did make me laugh and think of cobbler's shoes :)
Hugs, LLJ 45 xx
