Good morning all!!
I am back!
We had a few days in Yorkshire last week so my there was very little going on in my craft room.
This week I am back in the swing of things with some pre - Christmas crafty activity - well it is October so I think I can mention the C word now don't you?!

My table is loaded with hot-washed wooly items which I am going to use to make some little Christmas hearts. You might be able to spot one tucked in amongst the woolly loveliness there somewhere. The pretty ribbons are from The Works.

AND then....

I have been knitting Christmas pudding covers for Chocolate Oranges - well what else do you do in the spare hour or two when you chill out in front of the television?
They are for a local charity to sell at their Christmas fair.
They knit up quickly but the leaves and berries are a bit fiddly - I managed to make ten to send so far.

Well that's it for this week.
Ben and Maxine will be round later so I will have a busy day - yipee!

Just to say too.. hello to Neet - I met her for the first time at Annie's last week and she is a lovely lady!
I hope you are feeling better Neet, and that fresh sea air did you good!

Have a great week - join us in the Stamping Ground blog hop with the lovely Julia - see you at your WOYWW desk later.

Good morning all and welcome back!
I have been missing from WOYWW for a couple of weeks due to pressure of work!! lol

It has just seemed to be a hectic time with preparing for Ben's birthday party and then the poor little thing was poorly and couldn't go to his proper party with all his buddies so we had family tea here.
So my table hasn't seen much action by me.

 I did manage to mount the little sheepy brooches and pendants that Tilly finished.
They are all ready to go into bags and then they will be delivered to the local shops she is helping to stock.

My little dollies are all packed ready for their new little friends - lots of little birthdays for Ben's little girl friends.

AND lastly wasn't it a most beautiful sunset last night.....

Short and sweet but I really wanted to join in this week.
Thanks for calling by.

Have a great weekend.
