WOYWW....

These Wednesdays seem to come round quicker each week....or is it I am just sooooooooooo busy at the mo?
It's been another manic week with yet more wedding dresses to alter. I am steaming a Wedding dress today so it will be windows and doors open to allow a breeze through and stop me melting.

I aim to have at least 20 minutes of creative crafting every day even on my busiest days but at the mo my mojo has well and truly gone walk abouts so I have been knitting or crocheting because I can do that on automatic.

Here is a little baby blanket I am working on this week. It's using really lovely rainbow coloured wool and I have used a pattern Suz taught me when she called in for coffee last Friday. Suz is a blogging friend that I have left comments for over many months but only this last week we have realised we only live about 10 miles apart!....isn't blogging wonderful? She is a really talented lady who creates some amazing crocheted items and has been very willing to share her ideas......do pop over to her blog to check it out cos it's well worth a visit.

So? what's on my desk today?.....nothing! I have cleared my little 'to do' rail of all other sewing jobs and just have a Wedding dress to steam this morning and another wedding dress to finish the alterations on [but that will take me the rest of the day!] .
So......

.....here's what was on my desk last night. The football season has started again so it's fun time for Twiglet and I. You can just see Twiglet's hands in the bottom left hand corner busy creating and yes girls, those are two glasses in the middle of the table cos we are still celebrating [ my customer numbers are already up to 1005!! ].
I sat dumfing a new feltie and...



....here is a sneak at what I'm making. Can you guess what it is yet? She isn't quite finished yet but already has a ballet dress and tiara this morning :-) Watch this space as they say.




Now girls pop over to Julia's blog to find out more about WOYWW and please join in the fun. I believe we hit an all time record last week of folk joining in the fun. But be warned....it is addictive :-)

FlipSyde said...

Hello,
I have to say how much I love the French ballet mousey girl (I cheated and read the subsequent post). I really do dig Madelina. I'm fairly certain that I type this to you weekly, but I really enjoy the art that you post. I always smile when I see the red sewn flowers that you have as a banner.
