Good morning to all our WOYWW blog buddies.
This week has been another busy one.
I finished off the little shrug that I knitted for my special, little friend's christening.
She has a beautiful christening gown and just need something to keep her cosy, if it is a chilly day.

I love the lacy pattern and just added a few tiny sequins to add a little sparkle to match her dress.

I have also been trying to make a few little dumflings as ATCs for the WOYWW 8th anniversary swap.

Annie and I always make a few and ask that anyone who would like one leaves us a comment. We usually try and post them out together to save on stamps. So, if you think you would like to swap ATCs with me, just say so in a comment and I will do my best.

I have found it tricky to comment on one or two blogs, especially if you are Google plus. So I just want to say thank you for leaving lovely comments. I do pop over and read your post even if I can't leave a comment.

So, today I am having Ben whilst Maxine goes to a meeting and also will be seeing my christening baby to hand over the shrug and bunting. Another fun day!!

I hope you are all well and certainly enjoying the spell of lovely weather.

Have a great week.

x Jo

the little shrug is just gorgeous and perfect in case it's a chilly day ( like it will be anything else lately!) the atcs are looking gorgeous. I don't think I'll be able to do more than the one for my partner sadly. Helen #2

You are so talented! The little shrug is so perfect - the little added sparkle makes it so special :)
Every time I read a post of yours, I say the word 'dumflings' aloud and smile. Maybe I'll leave my window open and say it REALLY loudly and see what the children on their way to school think lol
Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Hi Jo, what a gorgeous garment, and your shrug looks beautiful with it. I'll send ATC's for you both to you, and you can pass Annies to her. :) I'm all for money saving, lol. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #8 XxXx

Ohhh Jo, love those atc's I wish I was that organised... I always mean to be... but... again. Maybe no 8 eh??? Too many other commitments, plus hurt myself and crafting limited. Been well for while so... should be grateful. ๐Ÿ˜Š
Thanks for sharing your inspiration, and happy WOYWW!

A baby day! Lovely. What a fine idea to add some sequins to that lovely little shrug. It'll be a very special day. Omgeee those ATCs are seems a fought trade to send you a paper one!

What a sweet way of keeping a little one cosy on christening day! I'd never heard of this idea before. And yours is very pretty indeed. It will certainly become a cherished item of apparel to be kept well into the future.

The shrug is charming! I treasure the garments my greats made for me! I'd love to swap ATC's if you have enough- do you still have my address? Think I have yours.
