Wordesk Wednesday 114.

Wipso and Twiglet are busy making little dresses for the African appeal so as I have these 3 of mine that I don't wear anymore I thought I would join in and make some too. Each dress is quite frilly so I reckon there should be enough material in them to convert into 3 dresses each.


The appeal is being co-ordinated by Louise over at Sew Scrumptious if you'd like to join in.

Meanwhile Norm is busy on my laptop. He has heard that his mates Dafydd and Marvin have arrived safely at their new adopted homes so he wants to say Hi to them. (It's a bit of a Monkey thing).






Why not check over on Julias blog and see what loads of other bloggers are getiing up to on their desks this week. I assure you it can be very addictive.
