 It's Wednesday and I have actually managed to post my WOYWW post this morning!
My table is covered with all sorts of bits and bobs...

A pretty pink hoodie for the little one that I made the floor quilt for.
A pair of socks for the little one that I knitted a gorgeous chunky cardi for and was asked if I could make socks to match.
Some chunky blingey beads etc that might get stitched onto a twiddle mitt or two.
A couple of mags/catalogues.
AND apart from all the usual stuff lying around, there is this.....
I found it when I was tidying a drawer.
I think it sums me up perfectly but how did they know?!!!!

Max and Ben are here today and I am making a new recipe for lunch so that will strain my brain!

Have a great week.

Best wishes to those who feel the need of a WOYWW hug.

WOYWW - 401

 Better late than never!
I seem to have been AWOL for a week or so.
Today I had to take a 100 mile round trip to see a consultant about my face!! So, yet again, I am a bit late getting round to my WOYWW posting. ( Nothing serious - just an op to remove a blip - I only have to wait 4 months for the op!)

Here's what I have been up to on my sewing desk this week.

As World Book Week approaches I decided I would make a Katie Morag style Aran jumper and a little tartan dressing up skirt. They seem popular for little ones and I usually donate my profit to a charity so it's a win/win situation. The Katie Morag stories by Mairi Hedderwick are used in school and she even had a tv programme created around her character. I have also made several little Katie sock dolls and I know she is loved by lots of children. See her here on my blog -

 Below, I have been knitting for a new baby in our family. One of our favourite cousins has just become a grandad so, this little cardi is for his beautiful little grand daughter.

That's it for this week - apart from wishing all our blogging buddies our very best wishes - if you need an extra hug from us all this week then here it is!

Have a great week.
Thanks for calling by and leaving your lovely comments.
