WOYWW? Curly Girly Art

I'm back at last but I am missing these Curly Girlies, the Brighton Belles, who were staying here for best part of a week but have now returned home. 
My work desk was the small breakfast table in the living room, much warmer than out in my workroom, and we all had so much crafty fun together. 
They loved stamping and were making special birthday cards for their Mummy.
We also had tiny tea parties...
They created all this art, ghosts, spiders, skulls etc., to decorate the front of the house before they went out around the neighbours "Trick or Treating" with their baskets and pumpkin lanterns. The little witch was none too happy until she found out that she received SWEETIES!!!
I know how observant you are and, Yes! I did send her back inside to put on her shoes!
Earlier in the week we went to a local Urban Farm and met the adorable, friendly, Alfie the giant rabbit.....
and were lucky to be able to watch this 2 day old litter of 11 saddle back piglets. 
Spot the one with a tiny white band and one with no saddle at all!
I'll be out most of the day but I'll do my best to call in on as many of you as possible later. Must catch up as I've been away from my desk for a few weeks.

How lovely to see pics of your grand daughters! They are really growing up fast!! It's so lovely to see how young children appreciate nature.
I hope that you are well and happy. I am hoping to make another quilt for LillyBo, but it will probably be after Christmas now :-)

A lovely post Jo. It's nice to see you back. You obviously had a lovely time with your two little ones. It is great that they have inherited your creative skills.
I also love the big rabbit and those dear little piglets. I was able to cuddle some once at the Oswestry show and I will never forget the feel of those very sold, warm, wriggly bodies!
I was too busy with Christmas cards to make it to the desk hop this week, but hopefully I'll be back next time. Kate x

This reminds me of tea parties that I used to have with my grandpop, believe me when I say this I still have my tea set because he purchased me a proper tea set to play with and it is blue and white.

Love the girls outfits,but they don't look happy or are they meant to be that way. Scarrryyyy
