This looks more like a "Twiglet" table doesn't it!!!
At last - and just a bit each day - my energy and enthusiasm have returned.

So, on my WOYWW table today you can see the little dressing up outfits that I have made for play group.
  • A little witchy skirt and cloak
  • A princess dress
  • A pirate waistcoat and trousers
  • 2 knights tabards
  • A spaceman tabard
I still have lots of fabric left so I am sure I will have more to show and tell next week.
For some reason Blogger has been a real pain this week - sometimes it won't let me load anything and then when I get into a blog, it won't let me comment. Apologies to all who I didn't manage a return visit to.

It's good to be feeling much fitter and stronger - I even drove my car for the first time in over a month yesterday - what a treat!
It's a cold and frosty morning here but the sun is shining and the hills look beautiful.
A quick snap from my kitchen door......

 Have a great week everyone.
x Jo

Yay, she's back!! Love the items on your sewing table...I'd quite like a princess cloak, pretty please ;-). I'm such a tomboy, always in trousers but am a glitter/sparkle fiend too...I think I need to let my inner princessiness emerge, don't you?
Love the view from your place, you do live in a gorgeous part of the UK!
Hugs, LLJ 22 xx

This does look like a Twiglet table! What adorable and fun little dressups! And the view from your kitchen is amazing. It is so cold here in the Ozarks, but my crafty corner is nice and warm. I am so happy that you have your good energy back, there's nothing like it. Hugs! Sandy Leigh #40

Nice to have you back to your self, I didn't like you being under par. Don't over do it though, it is so easy especially at this time of year.
Lovely makes - I am dithering with some fabric and all I need to make is a cloak - don't think I have got enough though - does half a metre length seem too little for a magicians cape for a tiny 7 year old?
Oh heck - I need to sew, I need to make cards, I need to ... it goes on and on.
Take care Jo
Hugs, Neet xx

People never think about not being able to drive after surgery do they? They always seem surprised to know we couldn't dare take a chance for weeks or even months after things like that. I'm glad that you are starting to feel better now Jo..... but, still...don't overdo.... it's just a bit longer til you feel more like the old you..or maybe even a better and more rejuvenated you... now that you have been "fixed" ...

I wish I could sew like that! My sewing seems to extend no further than my quilting... clothes, er not so much! :D
I love that view, wow!
