 Good morning all - WOYWW seemed to pass me by last week! I don't know where time goes.

Most of my crafty activity has been knitting based over the last few weeks. I think I have made about 40 little Christmas pudding covers for Terry's chocolate oranges - these are to be sold for charity this week.
I also finished another little Christmas doll and typed out 45 names for a "Name the doll" competition so that 2 more charities can also benefit from my knitty nonsense! (All good fun.)

Below you will see that I have been kept busy by Tilly Tea Dance who has been very busy with her needle felting, making brooches, pendants and fab pictures ready for her up-coming craft fairs. She is at Craven Arms Discovery Centre this weekend.
I am the "finisher-off"  - mounting and framing her work for her.

I just wish I had taken a photo of my lounge yesterday. She filled every available surface with lovely work so that her aunty could come Christmas shopping and chose a few gorgeous pressies for friends and family - now that's what I call a personal shopping service! We had a lovely snack lunch and a good chat so, much fun was had by all and I even managed to keep Ben entertained too, while all this went on. Never a dull moment here!

So, that's it for this week.
I hope you are all managing to keep dry after the shocking weather on Monday.
keep cosy!

x Jo

Hi Jo, laughed at you being the 'finisher off'. Sounds like you're going on a murder spree, rofl! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #9 xx

Oh my goodness! You have been busy. Good luck with the sale. I haven't tried knitting the covers yet. I think I may be able to handle them by next year. I have managed to finish my first scarf and am working on another. I am getting more comfortable with the easy stitches and following patterns so am just about ready to progress to increasing decreasing.

You are a good 'un! You do such a lot for charity, a lot unsung too and helping out Max must be such a help for her.
But you also have a very rude sense of humour and for that I love you :-)
Hugs, LLJ 12 xxxx

Sometimes finishing stuff off can be pleasurable when someone else has done most of the work and you are doing all the fancy bits at the end, sounds good to me. Have a great woyww, Angela x 18
