Good morning all!

I hope you are all well and able to enjoy this Wednesday blog hop around the crafty workdesks of the world. If you are not sure what this is all about, just follow the link to Julia's Stamping Ground and join in. There are lots of happy, crafty, bloggers around the world just waiting for you to check out their Wednesday work space!

After showing my sneaky peek at my new bag last week, lots of you asked to see the full monty, so here it is....

The fabric was from Abakhan and the little needle-felted brooch is one that I made last year.
Annie also made a bag - check out her blog..
 "A stitch in time" if you want to see the funky fabric she chose for hers and her finished bag - it's really fab!

Not much else happening on my workdesk at the moment.
I did sort out some of my crafty goodies to send to one of our blog friend's charities that they support.
I am sure the children involved in Muffins Dream Foundation will have fun with this little lot.....

Thanks for calling by my blog and for leaving such kind comments.
Have a good week.
x Jo

Morning Jo!

LOVE the bag you made, and how kind of you to also send goodies to Muffin's Dream Foundation. I've been over to their Facebook page just now and what a worthy cause. Anything to do with children tops my list.

I'm just about to decide what to wear to meet up with Annie today - should it be Giggling Gear or my Smiley Suit.

Happy WOYWW, hugs, Di xx

A Perfection in Pink! Your bag is delightful. Just seen Annies so dashed over to see you and yours. What a couple of brilliant stitchers you two are.
I loved the photos of the "dressing up session" with the clothes you made for the twins. Oh to be able to sew like you do.
Thanks for sharing.

I love that bag, Jo. It is just perfect for a seamstress. Pretty in pink. Am I showing my age with that movie reference? I've actually never seen the movie, but I remember the title.

You are so generous. Always doing something for the poor unfortunate children of the world. Bless you. Happy WOYWW from #1.

Got a kick out of the thought of you saving the soap wrapper when you were little. My Mom tells me she was like that too! Well I save cereal boxes for the sense throwing good stuff away if you can use it! Lovely of you to share your wonderful craftiness too! Happy WOYWW!
