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.

WOYWW - on Thursday!!

Oh - I know I am a day late but my desk hasn't seen any activity from me recently and I just wanted to share the little cardi that I finished.

It's a pretty peachy colour and I love the little picot edging.

My workdesk has been covered with lovely pictures that Maxine has finished and left for me to mount.
She has been busy with workshops - here's a link to her Tilly Tea Dance facebook page if you want to see more.  Tilly Tea Dance   

So - very short and sweet this week.
Thanks for calling by.

Normal service will resume as soon as possible!
Good morning all. Technical services have been problematic here for the last few weeks and it just shows how reliant we have all become on our computers, cameras etc doesn't it.
Well, I think the computer is sorted now and I am using my camera phone for my pics at the moment.

This was snapped on my desk last week...

It's a christening card for my little God daughter. We had a lovely celebration - I just hope her Mum is good at photo-shopping the pics of old scar face here!

My work desk today is my kitchen unit top. I have Ben here and today we made cheese straws. He has eaten two already (Don't tell his Mum!).
He then spent the next ten minutes drawing in the flour on the work top - messy but fun, and a good way of encouraging him to draw without having to concentrate on holding a crayon. He drew tracks and diggers and then rubbed his floury has hands over them to make it snow!

Well as you see - no action on my real work desk but who cares - I am enjoying every minute.

Thanks for calling by - have a great week.
