My workdesk has been loaded, unloaded and re-loaded with Tilly Tea Dance gorgeous craftiness!

Here she is in action last weekend - more photos on Shaz and Annie's blogs, I guess.

We had a wonderful two days at the Shropshire Leisure craft fair and will be really looking forward to going back for the Christmas Craft Fair later in the year. Lots of friends popped in for a visit including the lovely Shaz and Doug who we met for the first time. They are just as lovely as we thought they were!! WOYWW has certainly created a wonderful band of super crafter friends thanks to our leader Julia. 

Now, just to prove Tilly isn't the only clever crafter in the family, Ben was busy creating fruity faces for us all on my kitchen unit and delicious they were too.

Thanks for calling by - maybe I might have a little of my own crafty activity to share next week.

Have a great week.

Well, I had quite a chuckle at your comments on my footie addiction last week!
It even included an offer to share the fun with a WOYWWers husband!! Ha ha - I don't get offers like that every week!

This week has been even more addictive as Wimbledon has kept me on the edge of my seat too and I daren't mention Silverstone and Hamilton's remarkable recovery from 1st to last to 2nd!!

Hence my crafty activities have slowed to a standstill.
I have just managed almost one twiddlemitt but then along came Tilly with some brooches to mount on card and one or two pictures to mount ready for her Craft Fair at Shropshire Leisure this Saturday and Sunday.

It should be a great event with lots of local crafters exhibiting/selling their beautiful artwork and hand made crafts. Come along if you are nearby - it's handy to get to - just off the A5 and has free parking a café and garden centre too.

So - that's it for this week.
Enjoy the semi final tonight - "Come on England!!!"

Another week, another WOYWW!

Good morning all.
I am writing the text for this in the cool of Tuesday morning waiting for Tilly to come and start a day of crafting. I am not sure where we will work today as it is soooo hot! Maybe on the patio in the shade? Sounds good to me.

Now I have a confession to make.
My name is Twiglet and I am addicted to the World Cup Football!

I've always enjoyed watching the odd game or two but the footie this time has been brilliant and I have spent most evenings watching these amazing players try so hard to win.
Now, I say watching footie but, of course I can't just sit there only doing that - so here is the result of my addiction - ( And I think this is seriously becoming another! )

I have to make each one into a little work of art otherwise it gets a bit tedious.
So I try to combine colours and textures that please me.
The recipients might not be so fussy but, as my friend reminded me - "They still deserve to have beautiful things around them to enjoy."

So that's it for this week.

Enjoy the sunshine - and the footie!!
