As you will all know the 9th WOYWW blog Anniversary will be celebrated next week. I will be joining in by sending an ATC to the next in the Mr Linky list but Jo and I like to spread the love and send out a few more to anyone who would like to join in a swap. We have already sorted out all that's on our list below but do have a few spares if anyone else would like to swap so if so please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and send me your details ASAP. We do our swap together to save on postage costs so if you are sending to us both feel free to put both our ATCs in one envelope and post them to either of us....we promise to have a coffee together and share them out.
Our list so far is...

Meet my new best friend. You may have seen Jo had bought herself a new sewing machine and shared it last week. After seeing the demo in the shop and having a play on Jo's I could see it had many functions that would make my job easier so I've taken the plunge and bought one for me too.....and having already put it to good use she has become my new best friend.....you can see I've had a little time to play with it's new stitches too.
My new friend needs a name, she's def a girl cos she thinks of everything I need to do and does it to perfection....answers in the comments please. :-)
Here's the first job I did on my new machine. It's a little Memory bear using tiny babygros. Isn't she cute?
Of course my new machine has already had a good workout with shortening trousers etc but it has also made these three more Memory bears mad from a much loved Husband's / Dad's dressing gown......oh what a difference my new machine makes to my teddy making.
This is the other photo I'm sharing today. On Monday Jo came to join me in the afternoon so she could meet Margaret who called by to pick up the bags, knitted squares and Jo's knitted dollies that we made to go out to Uganda.
It's so lovely that from the little seed Julia planted all those 9 years ago that so many friendships have grown....thanks Julia x
That's all from me for this week so please leave me a little comment so I know you've called by and I will do my best to pop over to yours to see what you've been up to this week.
