Another happy Wednesday has come around – thankfully!
What a busy week we have had too.
I never really plan my crafty activities for the week, as I prefer just to tackle each day as it comes and do what ever takes my fancy – how lucky am I??
After a lifetime of work when every minute was filled and even my evenings and half my nights seemed to be spent thinking, planning and creating, it is lovely to be able to “cherry pick” the jobs I choose to do. (And when I say jobs I don’t mean WORK – just crafty activities!)
So imagine my delight when I had an email asking if I could make a Katie Morag style dolly for a Christmas gift. (Scroll down if you want to see the finished dolly and travelling bag).
I had two days of fun making them and the pleasure of thinking how much the recipient will love little Katie.

We have used mostly re-cycled frames which I have painted/distressed and waxed.
I love them – I just hope Maxine approves – then they will go on her Tilly Tea Dance stall at Craven Arms craft fair on Dec 14th. All together she has 20 pictures ready plus a few left over dumflings.
These little Christmas tree decorations were made with the little hearts Maxine and I made together. I think I shall make a few more as I think they are quite pretty.
I also knitted a little hoodie for Annie’s grandson – forgot to take a photo but it was knitted in Crofter baby wool in shades of blue and looked fab.
Well that’s it for this week.Thank you for calling by and leaving such positive comments – it really does inspire us to do more!
Now - over to Julia’s Stamping Ground to join in our blog hop for this week.
See you around!
