weekly stills....

Weekly stills:

1. Picking colour combinations for a new set of heart washers, this part takes me ages, I need to stop procrastinating! 

2.  Lovely snail mail! I received this gorgeous package today from my creative pen pal Mel, aren't I lucky!   (It is so nice to receive mail that is not a bill or a credit card application!)
Thank you Mel, I love it all!  
Just about to sit down with a diet coke and have a read. ;) xx

3 + 4. I have been into Melbourne a couple of times in the last few weeks and have done a little shopping!  New washi tape and a rather big pile of new crafty books to keep me busy over the Summer.  Can't wait to have a good read!

5. Had a little bake off this morning, feeling quite festive after making 5 batches of our family recipe shortbread.  I only make it at Xmas time because it is so moreish that I could eat a whole batch by myself!  These bags are destined for other people so I can't gorge on them myself, although I might have tested out a piece or 3! :) 
(Recipe is over here if you are tempted to make some yourself, although I decided to whizz it all up in the food processor rather than melt the butter this time.)

6. My cute card display. There are so many gorgeous cards out there by very talented illustrators, I have decided to create a little inspiration wall with cards that are too nice to throw out.  I really like looking at these! 

How has your week been? 
Did you have a busy weekend, or have you got a busy week ahead? 
It is getting to that time of year when there seems a million things on at once!  


  1. I always wanted to make shortbread cookies for Christmas and your recipe looks simple and perfect. Thx for sharing, I'm going to try this next weekend. Thx :)

  2. So many books I would love to read! I can't wait for the christmas holidays to read in all my crochet books :)

    Thanks for the recipe of the cookies - I will save it up and give it a try later this month (before christmas that is).

    Take care

  3. Suas imagens hoje,estão mais que perfeitas,Lindas.Boa semana amiga.Beijo.Valéria.(Brasil).

  4. I love this time of year, with all the hustle and bustle. Your shortbread looks delicious and perfect for little gifts.

  5. Those cookies look yummy, and the books sound interesting! : )
    Have a nice week! x

  6. Looks and sounds like a great week so far. Some of the same going on here (baking, making and shopping) YuM those cookies! I think I could wall paper my room with all the lovely cards I cannot bare to throw out. ; D Been hooking up some jar toppers from Dinki Dots BlogSpot (for a different look) to top the jars of goodies I give out every year. I added pom-pom edging to mine.
    Have a great day! x

  7. Merci de la bonne recette bonne soiree Marie-Claire

  8. So many happy bright colors! I have to say thank you because I made a crochet hat this weekend that had a lot of color changes in it. The practice I had from your tapestry tutorials helped me immensely. I don't know that I would've figured out how to follow the directions in the pattern if I hadn't had experience from your blog. I kept thinking, "Thank you Little Woolie!" I plan to post the picture of the hat when the light comes back for a shine.

  9. Looks like you've been busy. Me too. Don't think I'll ever be ready for Christmas.

  10. YAY, so happy my letter arrived & I love all your weekly still photos. x
