Good morning all!

I am having a good sort out and putting a few bits and bobs on ebay in the hope of making room in some of my cupboards.

So, there is  a pretty little vintage table cloth, washed, starched and ironed ready to go and a few of my handmade brooches mounted onto a card.
Most of the brooches are made using my embellishing machine to "dumf" a variety of wools, silks and fancy bits together. I added a few hand stitches or beads to finish them off.

The pretty random wool is waiting for me to get going on another little knittie or two. (See post below)

On the left are two ATCs which have already winged their way from Australia for me - isn't that lovely. I will display them later once we have celebrated the WOYWW 5th anniversary.
My ATCs are in the wallet below, ready to take to Annie's so that we can post them out together.
Don't forget to leave me a comment if you would like to swap with me - I am sure I will have  enough - er well that is providing not ALL of the 150 or so WOYWW buddies want one. lol!!

Today is a twinnie day so I will be down at Annie's enjoying a fun time.
Thanks for calling and leaving lovely comments.
I will try to get round a few more desks tomorrow.
Have a good week.
x Jo

Gosh, I hope the twinnies are feeling better today. The didn't look too good in the photos Annie showed.

Your desk, on the other hand, looks fantastic. Your brooches look like they will sell well. Happy WOYWW from #2.

I find when i make space in a cupboard it doesn't stay that way for long because i then end up buying something because i think Oh yes i have the room now. Happy woyww jill #5

Good luck with your sales on ebay Jo. Lovely wool (and lovely knits on post below) so something to show us another week then?
Good news about Annie isn't it, does it mean she will be closer to you when she moves?
I have my atc ready to send and am sure I have your addie somewhere in here (computer).
Take careHugs, Neet 18 xx
