I know it's a bit late in the day but at least it is still Wednesday!!
So, here I am, sharing my work table with my WOYWW buddies around the globe. Enjoy a good snoop over all the bits and bobs scattered over my table!

In the foreground are two needle felted pictures that I have just framed for Tilly Tea Dance.
Check out Maxine's new website here.
I love -  but then I would wouldn't I!! (Proud Mum)
She has been very busy creating beautiful little works of art for a shop in Muker in the Yorkshire Dales. I am sure her little sheepy pics will sell well up there too!

The rest of the bits and bobs are left overs from her crafty session this afternoon.
I will tidy up later, ready for another busy day on Friday.

I hope you are all well and enjoyed the beautiful weather over Bank Holiday weekend.

Thanks for visiting.

Summer Exhibition

Good morning all!
Well after a few weeks absence, I am back posting a few pictures for my WOYWW buddies to enjoy.
We have had a couple of really busy weeks. Maxine had a crafters' demo table at Burwurton Show and then she spent last week preparing for her Summer exhibition at The Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre in Craven Arms.

So, I have been helping out by mounting pictures and of course.......

The best job in the world - looking after Ben. We have devised a few new games - Crab apple basket ball using the composter, wet giants (a game in wellies on a rainy day) and World Benthletics - races and field activities on Nanny's back lawn. He can run much faster than I can now!

As for my crafty activities - well my room is slowly being taken over by packaging and bubble wrap...

I don't mind - it's so good to see her little business flourish and great to be able to help out.
In the evenings I am finishing off  about 40 Chocolate Orange Christmas puddings. Ha ha - sounds like I am eating them!! No, just knitting to stop me falling asleep after busy days.
My scar face is healing nicely but still feels tight and I know it sounds silly but it wears me out by the end of a day. I guess it's all the extra effort needed to move my facial muscles over tight skin - would help if I just kept quiet but that's not likely to happen!!

So, that's me for this week.
I hope you are all well and enjoying this changeable August weather. We have had some lovely sunny days - not too hot - just fresh and beautiful.

Have a great week.
