Here is what I am working on just now. 
3 more needlebooks, I already finished one on Sunday,  you can check it  out  here!
The tutorial for these is available here!
I am really enjoying making these.  I am also working on some colouring for cards I need  but can't share them yet.
How perfect is the stamp I used, it is part of a set from Whimsy Stamps?

 I won this fantastic crafty bag in a silent auction for charity on Saturday night. I was so determined that I wasn't going to come home without it! It is fantastic, has a little of everything in there, so perfect for me!  It even came with a complete set of tools and I mean real tools, I now have my very own hammer, screwdrivers, wrench and some other things that I don't know the name of! 
Pop over to Julia's blog for more details on WOYWW and links to many more desks!

Great stamp, love anything with a sewing theme or maniquins... or time... yeah, seems a lot! LOL That silent auction win was brilliant, I have a set of proper tools which travel the world with me and they are PINK... but they get used for everything and I love to see men swinging a pink hammer when nothing else is available!

That's a fantastic goody bag from the auction, lucky you! Love those little needles books too.

You really need to check out the sock yarn selection these days, it's incredibly clever stuff. They're dyed in long stretches, which produces stripes and very short sections dyed in two colours, which produces the patterned part. They only work for small projects like socks or gloves, otherwise you don't see the pattern bit emerge. Lots of fun though seeing how they knit up!
