woyww - che cosa è sulla vostra scrivania?

Which I'm told by google translates into What's on your workdesk - Oh I forgot about the Wednesday!

I have loads of chickens to knit for various teachers.  Smallest is leaving pre-school to start "big" school.  Small is moving to another class and his teacher is retiring.  I have two cakes to make.  One for a friend who looked after my house whilst I was away.  Another to make for a friend who secured me Adele tickets. 

I've been trying to make a felt cupcake for a while and I had a go last night.  This is my first effort.  I had to put it in a silicone case as the felt case I made looked like a hat.

I made a cake for playgroup this week - just a  quick one - it's supposed to be a sun on the top!

Rosie the Pig is finally finished - I am quite pleased with her.

We've been on holiday in Italy (hence the italian title!) and since we came back I have no idea what day it is. Anyway, here are some photos of my holiday:-

 Wish I was drinking that right now

 Mountains, cypress trees

 Lucca - top of a tower - boys loved it

Lucca's circular square (now that makes no sense)

Small & Smallest enjoying the Gelato 

and this is where I want to be with my knitting and sewing bag and my glass of wine

Maybe next year ..........................

'I have a load of chickens to knit...' is probably a sentence I never thought I'd come across, but just goes to show what goes in WOYWW - LOL!! I really the piggy-wig too, very oinky :D xx

Oh your italian scenes are gorgeous...I know what you mean - I have a large G&T with my name on it, next to a deckchair, hundreds of miles away!! Meanwhile though, love Rosie Pig, she's so sweet. Good luck with the chickens!

Love the shot of your soon-to-be used knitting materials.... everything on view is amazing and beautiful..... If someone told me I had to knit in order to be in that setting with a glass of wine, I'd do it! Thanks for visiting me...
