WOYWW - Tree Fu Tom!

Here I am folks!!
A bit late - well very late as I wasn't even here last week!!
I seem to have had a very busy crafty time over the last few weeks.
Above is my latest little dressing up outfit.
I made two of these little Tree Fu Tom costumes for my friend's grandsons.
(Tree Fu Tom is a mini super hero on CBeebies)
I hope they like their little suits - I certainly had fun making them.

My work room is a total mess as I still have loads of bits and bobs left over from the craft fair. We did sell a bit but, although the venue was brilliant, I don't think it had been well advertised. The rooms were full of fab craftwork and Christmas stalls so it was a disappointment to all the stall holders I think.

Maxine had lots of lovely feedback for her needle-felted pictures and she has put a few on Tilly Tea Dance - her Etsy site. She has been invited to give a talk and a workshop at the local Embroiderers Guild so she was really thrilled and it gave her such a boost to know her work met with their approval!!

So my table today just has a few oddments!!
If you saw Peppa pig on my Friday Smile post (scroll down) you might also recognise her brother George. He will be well loved when he is unwrapped this Christmas, I know!!
I made the little Christmas trees with some scraps of Christmas fabric and some twinkly beady braid.
Friends and family will be getting one of these!
Below is my latest cosy infinity scarf. I found the idea on Lunch Lady Jan's blog and she was kind enough to tell me how she made them. They really are so cosy - I have 3 in different colourways now.
So that's my week.
Today I fetched my Christmas tree.
It was windy and as I opened my boot one of my carrier bags blew across the car park.
I didn't know if it had anything inside, so just picture me on my hands and knees grovelling under someone else's car trying to retrieve it!! I managed it but tweaked a muscle in my neck and got two wet knees only to find that it was empty anyway!!! Lol. Mad or what?!!
Have a great week.
Thanks for calling by.
Join in with the WOYWW fun over at Julia's Stamping Ground - there will be lots of busy crafters getting ready for Christmas.

Awww - isn't Peppa sweet? And those little trees (?) are just precious. Needing a close shot of them, but I'll browse back and see if I can see them!
Sorry to be late but now I can get to my desk, it's commenting time ...

Happy last WOYWW before Christmas!

Love the trees - a great greeting aren't they. I made some teeny wreaths a few years back and the recipients still hang them on their trees - love that. I know that Peppa and george will be uber loved - you are clever.
Had to smile at the carrier bag are not my case it was a desperate chase in the wind because I was frightened that I'd lose a gift receipt. Ah the dignity!

Lisa-Jane said...

Oh my! What did you say to yourself when you finally got the bag back?! I recognised the Tree Fu outfit - they will definitely have fin wearing those! Have a wonderful Christmas and best wishes for 2014! #41

Running late with WOYWW but always like to visit. Being ill took a toll on me being caught up on most things this time of year. I love your little trees. Just adorable.
I dislike wind..and makes me mad when I have to chase something. One day I had 3 letters from the mail box swooped away and had to retrieve them in the ditch. Not a Happy camper. Have fun the next few days. MAY YOU AND YOURS HAVE A FUN AND FESTIVE CHRISTMAS.
