 Just a few jolly pictures to brighten a rather gloomy day!

Firstly the lovely ATCs I have received over the last week or so...
I love the way they are all so different and each one a tiny work of art.
Thanks lots to our WOYWW friends from around the globe.. Cardarian, Sharon K, Lisa D. Laura and Elizabeth. They really are beautiful and I now need to make a little book to keep them in.

 Here are two little pals who have been having a snoop around my untidy work table today!
We are calling them Izzy and Ben because they are a little gift for Ben's bestie Izzy.
Ben has a set that like to hide in the pockets on my red cushions and he loves them.
(I think he would quite like these two as well so I will have to put them up out of sight!)
Oh - and of course, all credit must go to Flutterby Patch - the creator of the little knitted dolly pattern.

AND lastly, my Shrewsbury Town Footie Club Twiddle muffs.
(So glad I didn't knit England ones - oops!)
They are all ready to go to the hospital along with the final bunch of about 20 normal ones.
Now I need to find something else to keep me busy - a little dumfing maybe?

That's it for this week.
I am sending a special hug to Julia and a big thank you for writing such an amazing blog yesterday. We are with you all the way and willing you back to good health blog buddy!!

Thanks for calling by.

x Jo

Those little knitted dolls are so fantastic, I'm sure that Izzy will absolutely love them! I remember that my son could not be parted from his knitted snowman when he was a little 'un!

Love your Twiddle Muffs and your two little characters - all will be loved by the receivers I am sure.

So that's why your twiddle muffs were blue and yellow - not Swedish but for the Shrews. I like your idea of cushions with pockets that the dolls fit into- so cute. Have a creative week x Jackie 14

Your blog doesn't always come up in my side bar these days....I've found you via Jans today. I love those little dollies and can see why Ben loves them. As for the twiddle muffs.....they are really amazing Jo. I wonder what your next craze will be :-)

Hi Jo, the ATC's have been so gorgeous and so varied haven't they? Weather here is crap too- absolutely pouring down. Lolled at the England comment, not a football following household, but couldn't miss all the talk over FB about our performance. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #6 xxx

Indeed good thing you didn't go for England, who had guessed that? Since the Netherlands didn't make it at all I now be cheering for Wales and Iceland. You got to love the underdogs.
Love those dolls, they are very cute.

The little dolls are lovely - they remind me of dolls I had when I was young - it's not so common to see knitted dolls nowadays - I suppose not so many people knit. I'm sure Izzy will fall in love with them. Thanks so much for stopping by earlier, I hope you enjoy the rest of the week,
