Just a few little items on my work table today.
I am about to start making a few more draught excluders so I thought I would just let you see a tidy space before the mayhem begins!
Top left are the beautiful cards of MarmaladeRose's lovely felting work. If you are interested then pop over to her blog and have a look at the fantastic work she does.
On the top right are Maxine's little felted collages which are all ready for me to put in the upcycled chalk painted frames.
The three little pictures at the bottom are the little collages that I have made for my three great nephews/niece who are all 2 in the next few weeks. I haven't revealed all in case their mums are looking!
Below are the remnants of fabric that I bought to mix and match with our existing stash for our draught excluders. Such gorgeous stuff - I will enjoy using it.

OK folks - that's it for this week.
Hopefully I will have more time for blogging this week.
Last week was a bit hectic.
Join in with our fun blog hop by linking up at Julia's Stamping Ground.

Thanks for calling by and leaving lovely comments. Have a great week.
x Jo

Great desk - and gorgeous materials for draught excluders. I know what you mean about 'hectic'. Yesterday was like that here - two hospital visits at different hospitals and a chiropody appointment in a third place - got home shattered!
Have a great WOYWW week, kind regards, John W #71.

Hi Jo - Lovely felting work in your top picture, must visit the blog you mention and have a look - love felting but haven't done any myself in ages (not that I can do pictures!).
Good luck with the draught excluders, hope they sell like crazy and you make lots of pennies fro them.
Can't wait to see those cards, they look lovely from the peek we got.
Take care and thanks for FS.
Hugs, Neet xx 30

Fun little designs in your top photo, all are so pretty. A bit late in making the rounds, but Life has commitments. Loved our vacation to Europe, beautiful country.

Loving the felt pictures, I should really incorporate some embroidery onto my felt work.... More creative ideas to fill my brain - so little time
