Good morning all.

My desk is looking a little bit tidier this week - that's because all my bits and bobs and piles of fabric are tucked away under the table!!!

As you see - I have still been very busy.
I have a new Katie Morag style dolly to finish - she just needs hair and a face.

On the left are the little embroidered Christmas trees that will eventually become Christmas cards.

On the right is a little needle felted robin and the Christmas tree that I made at the workshop I went to on Saturday with my daughter Maxine. (Scroll down to my earlier post if you want to know more)

In the front of the picture is the juicy, raspberry pink sleeveless cardi that I am knitting for Lexi.

That's it for today folks.
I will pop in to visit later in the week - we have a funeral today.

Have a great week.
Thanks for popping in.

x Jo

Poor baldy Morag waiting for her hair! Looks like you are all boxed off for your cards. I'd love a better peep at the robin please.
Such a gorgeous colour for Lexi's card, you are such a good G Aunt to them they are shared grandees!

Sorry to hear you lost your uncle. Thinking of you.

As usual you have some lovely work surrounding you, such talent.

No desk for me, I am in Germany and forgot to take a photo of the mess that awaits my return.

Take care
Hugs Neet xxx

Katie Morag looks a bit chilly without her barnet!! She's a great doll though and looks just like the book illustrations. Clever you!
That pink yarn leaps off the page...perfect for Lexi I should think ;-)

Katie fits in well in a bald family but do think she will look better with that gigger wig :-)
