Good morning to all our WOYWW followers and anyone else who pops in for a visit!
Thanks for joining in the blog hop and for all your lovely comments too.

I have had quite a crafty week this week.
On the left is the jersey fabric dress that I made for Maxine - it still needs another fitting before it's finished but looks good so far.

In the middle is a lovely little cardi I have just finished knitting using Sirday Baby Crofter.
It is a size 2/3 years so I think little Lexi might like it - really gorgeous Spring colour combo isn't it?

I am not sure what this week has in store for me - no doubt the knitting needles will be in use and my machines will be buzzing.
Never a dull or wasted moment here!
What are you up to this week?
I will be hopping round a few desks to find out.

Have a great week.

x Jo

PS If you are interested in needle felting, you will love this new book by Gretel Parker!

Just pop over to her blog to find out more...

You've reminded me that I got a little needle felting animal kit for Christmas, now where did I put it?

Lovely sewing projects as always.

great looking workspace and that cardigan is so cute. I thought I would try felting someday but right now I just don't have the energy...maybe soon. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a crafty week! Vickie #49

I said to Annie last week that you two should be contestants on the Great British Sewing Bee! Love that jersey for the dress, bet it drapes really beautifully. That little cardi is sweet too.
I have a needle felting kit in my cupboard that was a prezzy, must get it out and have a go!
Hugs, LLJ 27 xx

What a busy bee you've been this week, Jo. That cardigan is so lovely - don't you just love the way the patterns emerge without any extra effort?!
Have a great week.

Almost traditionally running late!
Love the fabric of Maxine's dress...I hate using that jersey fabric, you clever thing. The Crofter yarn is just so lovely, I've made myself a couple of cowls in the lovely soft baby...Lexi will not want to take it off!

I love seeing your lovely needle felting, but I dare not take up another hobby. I have too many already. I am still knitting the scarf for my littlest granddaughter, but it is taking longer than I would like, being in fisherman's rib. I am also finding that if I try to stick at it, my shoulder becomes very sore. I also need to do one for her sister, and shawls for both girls. Definitely no time to be bored. The material of that dress is o rich and lovely. I hope Maxine enjoys wearing it. Hav a good week. xx Maggie #8

What a cute cute dress!
I am interested in needle felting but I haven't tried it. The materials aren't available here but I have a small kit that I bought when I was in Korea. I found a small shop there of a lady who does wonderful needle felting. Quite expensive so I didn't get to buy anything.
Thanks for sharing! Happy WOYWW!
