Christmas WOYWW

I can't believe this is the last WOYWW before Christmas!
Where does that time go?

I am just waiting for my little helper to come to put the last few bits on my tree.
These are a few of our favourite handmade bits from the past.
These and a lot more "old timers" go on my tree each year so that it is a tree full of memories. 
I love it.

Well, I'd better get organised ready for my playmate to arrive.

Happy Christmas to all who pop by here over the next week.
I hope Santa is kind to you and that you have a peaceful and joyful time.

Best wishes.

Good morning all!
I'm back - not that I have been anywhere - just absent from WOYWW and busy with "work".

The craft fairs etc with Tilly Tea Dance last week went really well. It was lovely to hear all the positive feedback from her workshops and to see folks smile as they walked towards her Tilly Tea Dance stall. Click here to see what we were up to. Tilly Tea Dance at the craft fair

My latest crafty activities have been little dressing up outfits for friends and family.
Ben needed a Woody outfit for a Disney themed birthday party....

He already has the jeans and yellow checked shirt so I think these will just finish off his outfit nicely!

 My friend's granddaughter wanted a witchy cape and a Red Riding Hood cloak.

All I would say is.... don't ever ask me to sew slippery crushed velvet again. A simple job became a nightmare! It looks Ok and I am sure they will love it. Cheap isn't always the best choice - it was probably intended as drape/display fabric. OR my sewing skills have been seriously lacking in the velvet department!

So, that's it for this week.
Today is a fun day with Ben day so I will try and check out your desks later in the week.
I bet you are all busy with C cards - I really must plan mine - I have bought the stamps - lol.
