WOYWW

Quite a contrast to share with you today!
Christmas puddings and Tilly Tea Dance's new range!

I am knitting covers for Chocolate oranges for a local charity ready for their Christmas Fair - apparently they sold really well and made about £400 last year, so now's the time to start!!

Maxine spent a morning in The Dingle in the Shrewsbury park. The garden is all ready for Shrewsbury Flower Show next month so the flower beds look stunning - definitely inspirational.  I love the colours in these little needle felted and embroidered pictures. She needs lots of stock for a show next week and also her exhibition next month.  So lots of wet felting, needle felting and embroidery will be going on while I have fun with Ben. Yesterday we baked cheesy bread buns and cakes for his daddy's birthday.


That's it for this week.
I hope I can get round to visit a few WOYWW desks later.
Thank you to all who call in here - and for all the lovely comments.

xx Jo

Hi Jo,

Love the Christmas pudding covers, they are great! I so wish I could knit, I tried to knit a scarf once, it was a disaster. Thanks for sharing! Happy WOYWW! Lyns xx #20

Love the puddings! The local Knit and Natter group I attend do something similar but smaller so a Ferraro Rocher choccy can fit inside. They sell them at a stall in the local hospital in December and make a goodly sum for the Breast Care unit.

No matter the time of year, I am always ready for chocolate with orange anything. I like the clever and attractive covers you've been knitting. You really do like to keep busy, don't you? :) "Cheesy buns and cakes" - both sound just the ticket for a fin birthday celebration. Enjoy your felting!
Happy WOYWW!

Well I'm not surprised about the popularity of the knitted covers...aren't they cool! Good for you, Twiggers. AM loving Maxine's new collection, and hope it does very well indeed.

Interesting chocolate orange covers - why do chocolate oranges need covers? The flower pictures are lovely, the actual gardens must be spectacular! Thanks for sharing, Lindart #33 - but Mr Linky will take you to a page that says my post does not exist - Fake News! click on "home" and it will take you to the post!

Hi Jo. I'm having to take my time getting round this week due to a bad head cold but I'll get there. I am determined to have a go at some needle felting as it's something I've never got round to. Happy belated woyww, Angela x19x
