It's all go on the Twiglet work table this week.
Today it's set up for brooch finishing.
Tilly will arrive with a bagful of beautiful brooch fronts and I will be adding little brooch pins to the back and packaging them ready for the Salop Leisure Christmas Craft Fair on Nov 24th and 25th.

If any of you are near enough to pop in, we would love to see you.

Below is the latest knittie for Ben. I showed it to him and he put it on straight away and said "Can I take it home Nanny?"  Success then!!

Hope life is treating you all well.

Have a great week.
xx Jo

Good morning all.
The magic porridge pot that is my wool bag has suddenly been replenished!
I can't resist a bargain - the random wool was on sale and it's perfect for my twiddle mitts, so, I stocked up ready for when I have a dull moment and feel the need to twiddle.
Also, Annie sent me a link to the stork/flamingo pattern. I thought they were cute so may give it a go.

I just wish I had snapped a picture of my desk last Friday.

Max needed a costume for a 90s party so she came here, armed with a bag of fabric.
It was a delight to see her set to  and create a wonderful skirt with flouncy net edging and big glitzy bow. She used an old skirt as a pattern - sketched what she wanted and the using her fabric - and my stash and machine, created the perfect outfit to wear with my favourite 90s shoes!

Of course, I had fun looking after Ben and just popped in now and then to give -  technical advice.

It's lovely to see how she works - don't know where she gets it from- !

We had a chuckle  because she said "That's the dress I drew when I was 9 - remember when I said I wanted to be a dress designer and we made up a company called "Sprint and Sparkle".
Maybe that's where Tilly Tea Dance will go next!

Have a great week all.
I will be round to check out my WOYWW buddies desks later.
