WOYWW

Well it's been another busy week here.
I even managed a bit of time at my sewing machine making a set of dolls clothes for one of Ben's little friends. I made a top, skirt, cardi and nappy BUT forgot to take a photo! I might ask Tilly Tea Dance to post one on her blog as she now has the outfit.
I have also been helping my friend gather the fabric and bits and bobs to make a quilt for her newest grandaughter. She did an amazing job and sent me a photo today of the finished item. What a labour of love....



My twiddlemuff knitting is still ongoing and I used up some oddments to make 3 more for the local hospital.

Meanwhile, Tilly has been using my desks for more crafty creations. She is busy organising more workshops and creating beautiful little pictures and brooches for local shops. AND I have had fun keeping Ben busy - we had his cousins to play today and, once he got used to them, he really enjoyed sharing his toys with them!

So that's it for this week.
Have a great week and enjoy your crafting.

x Jo

Hi Jo
So glad Maxine's business has taken off. not surprising when you see her work. Gives you chance to play with Ben which I am sure is pure pleasure.
Good to see you have still time to make things yourself even if they are for Ben's friend - those Twiddlemuffs are fab and the quilt made by your friend is too.
Have a good week.
Hugs, Neet 1 xx

Wow, I am in awe of that quilt - how detailed and beautiful is that?? I struggled with the simplest of designs and have decided that life is too short! I shall use charm packs etc in the future but to make bags or things that don't need bl£$@y quilting!!!

Hi Jo,what a treasure that quilt will be. Great that Ben gets to know his cousins, these days families don't seem to know their relations as much as we did, don't you think? Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #7 xxx

Morning Jo. Great coloured twiddle muffs you have made there. I'm sure the local hospital is really grateful for them all. That quilt is something else... congratulations to the creator.
Take care. God bless.

Aw, bless hi, learning to share his horrid. Makes me pout just thinking about it!! Your friend's quilt is a masterpiece of loveliness, how lovely a gift that will be. Don't hold your breath, but am considering aking a few twiddlemuffs to donate to Mum's care home. Mum holds the record for fastest destruction!
