I have had a lazy few days and not much crafting by me has gone on at my table this week.
Maxine, on the other hand, has been busy dumfing away and creating some gorgeous needle felted pictures to put in one of the galleries in town. She will post them on her Tilly Tea Dance blog if time allows.

Dumfer at the ready for today's session!

So, my main activity has been playing with Ben - such a joy. He is growing fast and learning all sorts of new skills. He can now walk along behind his new brick truck walker and is so proud of himself. What a lovely age! I can see that I will be running to keep up with him soon - great fun!

My workspace for today!

My other news is that one of my Yorkshire friends has just set up a little business making beautiful knitted hats. She has called it   " Bobble & Squeak" 

Pop over and check it out - they look so cosy!

So that's it for another WOYWW - the weeks are flying by - I can't believe we are in September already.

Thanks for calling by - I shall look forward to snooping round a few desks later.

Have a great week.

x Jo

Off to loo at knitted hats! You know Jo, you cannot do anything better than play with your grandson - wish I had one - but I have had friends who have had babies and I have so enjoyed those early years.

Isn't it amazing how everything stops for when a baby is in the house ... I just love it when my little great-grandson visits too :) Your dumfing machine looks a very sophisticated piece of equipment. I shall be popping over to Tilly Tea Dance later. Have a good week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #37
