Is it WOYWW already!!!

 Well here I am, late again!
I seem to have been busy cooking, baking, cleaning, helping crafty folk and having fun playing with Ben.
I must apoplogise to all the kind folk who visited my desk last week and left lovely comments about Ben's advent tree - I only managed to revisit a few of you. I promise I will try harder this week!!

Above is the little knittie and dress I made for a little 15" doll - I haven't made dolls clothes for ages and it was fun to work on a tiny scale - I even tried to smock the frock!

Below are the little Christmas collages I added to some Christmas napkins for my friend's family Christmas table. I think the little ones will love the festive fun!

So now I need to get my a... into gear and finish off my Christmas cards - I have been making them in the spare moments I have had and they seem to be taking forever.

Thanks for dropping by - if you want to see what Maxine has been making while I have had playtime with Ben, then pop over to Tilly Tea Dance - she is much cleverer than me!!
Well if I don't link this with Mr Linky on Julia's blog it will be WOYWW next week before I know it!

See you soon
x Jo

Gawd, when you discover the secret of getting the a into g and keeping it there, will you share?! The 15" dolly clothes are just lovely. I once made a few outfits and ended up making a doll outfit and then a niece size outfit to match. Glad those days are over; hideous pressure!

It's all looking a lot like..... Looking good Jo.

Dolly clothes!! Guess what I've been asked to do by a friend in band?? For two baby dolls, a boy and girl...I have no idea where to start! Thus is one of those times when I wish that I lived round the corner from you so I could pick your brains!! That little dress is gorgeous :-)

Hi Jo I nearly didn't make it. As you say so much going on! Love the knitted clothes and napkins. Need to go and see the Advent calendar you made. Anne x #49

Hi Twiglet, love those napkins- both the colour and your collages. And dolls clothes- blimey, it's many a long year since I did any of them! I chuckled at Max too! Have a great week, hugs, Shaz #10 xxx

Doll's clothes! How sweet! We have all boys in our family and I don't even know if girls still play with dolls. Obviously they do....
The napkins are great. Yes, they will love those.
Thank you for visiting earlier,
Have a good week,

I've been out and about visiting my grandson in his new house, and cuddling my little great-grandson today, so couldn't really join in but still had to take a peek at you and Annie's desk. The little dolly outfit is beautiful and the napkins are wonderful fun. Have a great week. Hugs, Elizabeth xx

You are lucky. I haven't even started my Christmas cards yet. Finally got ink today, so now I can start them.

Your napkins look wonderful. I especially like the little bird. Thanks for the earlier visit, too.

our Mum used to make us lovely dolls clothes, how lovely to see these - you're a star! thanks for visiting already, sorry it took me a while to get back - the new computer won't work and I had to plug the old one back in and then the internet was playing up..... blah blah, lol! Have a good day. Helen 3

Thanks for your lovely comment but I just had to tell you that those "little tins" you admired are actually 7.5 x 9.5 inch fabric covered sewing cases which sell in Ikea (complete with shears, pins, tape, snips etc.,) for £10
Hee hee! Had to laugh!
