Better late than never!
Here is my new helper standing guard by my sewing machine.
She is knitted using the pattern from Dollytime
Such a cute little doll and a really easy pattern to follow.

I think I might donate her to charity as a "Guess the name of the dolly" fund raiser.
I just need to find a few Christmas related names!!!

I hope you are all keeping warm and cosy - we have workmen in doing a few "touch-up" jobs and they think it makes sense to leave the outside doors open!! However, I am upstairs in my sewing room and it's lovely and cosy there.
At least we don't have snow ... it sounds pretty nasty in the North.

That's it for this week - I hope I can whiz around and visit a few of our WOYWW desks soon.
Have a good week.
x Jo

Hi Jo, I love your little helper - she's the perfect Christmas dolly. I can't think of many seasonal names but Noelle and Carol come to mind - too obvious and not much help really. We don't have snow yet but it is very frosty and cold. I believe it is snowing as far down as Bedford so it's only a matter of time before we see some of the white stuff here. What is it about workmen and doors - they just don't feel the cold!!! Have a warm and cosy week and a happy WOYWW. Hugs, Elizabeth x #13

Hi Jo, your little helper is so sweet. Pleased to say we've not had snow but some rain this morning and it's quite chilly. Happy crafty woyww, Angela x 19

I love your little dolly...She looks so much like "Tilda" in the stamping world. Wonderful weather and a few outside projects to complete and I'll be ready for time to craft. Have a wonderful week.

Such a cute little helper, and I love the holly and berries around her jumper. I hope your builders are finished soon, it's always so chaotic isn't it.
Stay warm and cosy, and I hope you have a great week,

Thought you were having a week off today so was surprised to see you in my blog list. Love the new little knitty.

today has been mostly very cold and very wet here, not a day for leaving doors open at all! Love your newest little helper. Helen #2

I think she's a in 'Gloria in Excelsis;!!! Ok, sorry, that's just my weird sense of humour again :-D. She is very cute and once again, I am in awe of your crafting patience...wish I possessed some.... No chance there then, so I'll just go for the Instant Gratification again, like I always do, lol!

How about a Holly? You've had some fab suggestions already I see. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #8 xx

What a cute little doll - and a great contest! Holly Berry of course comes to mind, or Jingle Belle, Mary Mistletoe, that's all I can come up with right now! Thanks for sharing! Lindart #47

Such a festive helper! Has to be Holly something. So cute. Hope the workmen get the work done quickly.

Love your little helper, Carol is an obvious name as is Holly and what about Noella? Hope they help with the list you are compiling.
Nothing worse than cold weather and open doors, glad you are tucked away nice and warm upstairs.
Hugs, Neet 4 xx

I'm very late visiting. I couldn't get internet connection last night :-( Love your little helper. I cannot add to your list of names but I did think Holly as soon as I saw her :-) Anne x #22

Happy Belated WOYWW. Such a cute doll. You may say she is simple to knit, but I would prove otherwise! Ali x #12

Love your new helper. You are right it is a bit chilly up here in the north and I am not as north as many but we have had snow!
