WOYWW......

Funday Monday was just that........fun fun fun........not the depressing day promised in the news!....I have blogged it in the last post if you'd like to see what we got up to.  I'm sure when they say these things in the news if affects how people think so it would be really lovely if just once they said ....."and today it known the be the happiest day in the year when everyone smiles and does good for the people they meet".  :-)

My Pass it forward gifts are in the making and of course I won't be able to share these with you until they have had them....I notice Keryn over on Poppy Dog is looking for folk to pass hers on to so if there are still some kind generous people who would like to join in spreading a little happiness around the world then please pop over to her blog and join in the fun.  I know for sure that every time I give something away I get it back ten fold in one way or other so please sign up to share some love.

On my desk [ and floor] today is.......  

A whole lot of wools, beads, yarns, fabrics and a whole lot of scrummy things I can't show you [they are under the fabric at the back of the table]......oh what a tease I am.  







I will take pictures of all the hidden things and will share them when I can but for now you will have to just snoop through the materials I play with  :-)





For those of you wondering what my daughter M has been up to since she left here with her pile of sock on Monday.  Here is the gorgeous Penguin and Cat she has made yesterday....she really does take a new learnt skill and fly with it  :-)  In fact she was sat teaching my son's girlfriend how to make them last night  :-) Aren't they gorgeous?



Now girls please pop over to our host blog....Julia the Queen of snoop....and join in the fun of sharing your creative space with others.



If you haven't already checked out the sale bargains in our blog shop then it's worth popping over to check them out.  This is the last week of the sale so don't forget to grab a bargain or two    :-)

Loved the rummage through your wools - my daughter would probably want a few of them as she is into knitting now - your daughter has made some lovely dolls - the cat is my absolute favourite!
Hugs,

Love your sock creations and all those yummy beads!

Ciara said...

That penguin is ace! Your daughter clearly has your talent for making things :-)

(the cat is cute too but I have a thing for penguins!)

Actually, you might be interested to hear I just ordered a little kit to make a penguin from felt. As someone who struggles to sew a button on a shirt, it's going to be a challenge!

Neet said...

Oh I just love that cat - absolutely adorable - but then I am a cat woman (wish I looked like her in the body) (just remembered it is Halle Berry I am on about)

MaggieC said...

Well done to your daughter for those sock dolls and for passing her new skill on to another potential crafter. The more the merrier.

Thank you for popping in to my blog and for your lovely comment. It is much appreciated.
