WOYWW

 Good morning all - I hope you are well wrapped up for this early autumn weather we are all enjoying!
It's been a bit wild, wet, and chilly here for the last few days.
My desk is very neat and tidy with just the remnants of Maxine's busy half hour when she was trying to finish her crocodile page for the busy book. Note the neatly sorted boxes of bobbin threads.

Below is my latest little hoodie - I just need to decide what colour buttons to put on it. What do you think?

 And here is the little card that I made for one of my friends who has just had a new grandson.
My next job is to shorten a pair of ready made curtains for my lounge.
I told hubby I was collecting the pole today and his response was...
"Oh I hope he is going to put the curtains up"

My daughter's response was...
"I didn't know you'd been having dance lessons!"

My family!
Shall I post a pic of me pole dancing next week then?!!

And on that note...
Have a great week.
Thanks for calling by.
See you soon.
x Jo

Def the heather colour for the buttons Jo and if I get to choose whether to see you pole dancing or not then please can I decline? :-)
Have fun shortening those curtains :-)

Supposed to be a very good exercise routine that pole dancing, there are people that teach it - my friend went once, loved it, but ached all over for the first six months!!! Nice neat desk xx

Lisca Meijer said...

My jaw dropped when I saw your bobbin box! How organised!
The card (and the busy book) are gorgeous. Clever you. And there goes another hoodie. How many have you made now\?
Looking forward to the pole dancing photo,
Have a great week,

I think you'd probably be quite good at pole dancing, lol!! Have you seen the new ad for moneysupermarket.com? The one with the builder strutting his stuff on the scaffold pole? It cracks me up every time :-)
And you? Slapdash? I think not!! Not having seen your work in t'flesh...you are very meticulous too :-)
Hugs, LLJ 16 xx

Gorgeous little hoodie, so sweet. Look forward to seeing you pole dancing, it's supposed to be very good for keeping you fit and trim.
Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 29

What a gorgeous baby card - a lovely little keepsake - and your stitching is so perfectly neat - I've tried writing in sewing and it wasn't pretty! I love the little hoodie, it's so cute even without a baby in it! Hope you have a great week,

Hi Jo, I like your bobbin organisers ... I can see I'm going to have to look for them to house my ever increasing number of bobbins :) The little hoodie is gorgeous - love the yarn you have used - and the card for Oscar's grandparents is the perfect keepsake. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #52

Helen said...

Tilly Tea Dance said...

I've colour sorted your ribbons, I've colour sorted your bobbins...I promise you'll be thrilled next time you look in your knicker drawer!! Te he he he. Glad my obsessive organising provides such a talking point! The hoodie is fab. I think purple buttons or maybe a denim blue.

Barb said...

What a special baby card that is. I really like the little bag that you have hanging over the edge of your table. Happy WOYWW Barb#33 xx

Ha ha!
Nice hoodie, maybe match the lilac colours for the buttons? All pretty colours. (I mainly only do fair isle knitting.)
Have a good week.

Neet said...

Enjoy your dancing! Seriously, love the hooded cardigan - and I would go for blue. Also love the card for the new Grandparents - what a lovely thought.
Hugs, & Thanks for your earlier visit to me - Neet 25 xx

Never mind a picture...how about a video!!! Don't ask me about the buttons, I'd change my mind too often...perhaps one of each of the yarn colours? It's a really sweet hoodie. Don't you know seamstress who specialises in curtains?!!!
