It must be my age!
All the days seem the same at this time of the year and it's Wednesday already!!
So, just a quick view of my table end.

My little sis bought me a little patchwork measuring square for Christmas - perfect for cutting lots of small items with my rotary cutter.
My daughter - another partner in crime gave me the fab fat quarters - cute little robin print - perfect for my little crafty activities.

Help yourself to one of the chocs - I have already eaten far too many!!

And lastly - here's the little hoodie that I knitted for a new family member - cute isn't it.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are now looking forward to your New Year celebrations.

All the best for 2017!
love from Jo

WOYWW - Merry Christmas everyone!

My table is empty, no work to be seen.
So my photos just show you this festive scene....

These are the trees, decked at Attingham Park
(No flash allowed and it was really quite dark!)

But all looked so splendid and trimmed up so neat
I thought I would share them - a Christmas time treat.

Merry Christmas everyone - I hope you have a lovely weekend!

My desk is covered with freshly mounted Tilly Tea Dance work so I will show you what I managed to fit into my busy schedule this week instead!

There has been a lot of action on my work table - much fun had by all!
Steady on there girls - I mean sewing action......

Firstly, here is the little row of Christmas sacks that I made as Ben's advent calendar. He has loved peeping in each one to find a little treat/treasure each day.

Next is my trickiest project for a while.
I made two of these little puffy/quilty mats for Ben and was asked to make one for the latest addition to his playmate group - a tiny little girl who lives on a farm and I am sure will have fun with this one.

 And finally....

A little bit of teeny tiny knitting for the same little one.
You can see by comparing it to my pattern just how tiny she is.

I am probably going to make a few cosy sleep suits for Ben with the pattern after Christmas.

So that's me for this week.
Hopefully I will squeeze in a few minutes blog hopping to see what you have been up to. I have been useless at getting round the desks for while and I am really sorry.

Have a good week.
