Life is good here at Sewing by Annie's at the mo. Sewing for customers is steadily coming and in between jobs I have been filling my time with sewing for me....It's what I do and it makes me smile. We are keeping up the 3x a week visits to the gym for now...the 14 week course ends on Feb 14th and sadly they are asking for over £800 for the next 12 months which isn't something we can manage so we are planning to keep up the exercise in other ways....commit to a good walk at least 3x a week will be a good start.
My photos this week have been mainly of my Luna Lapin rabbits and here's the latest now completed...
He's now wearing his jeans, fully lined waistcoat and shirt.....and looking rather pleased with himself too.
Each item of clothing is like making a miniature version of the real thing...the shirt has a box pleat in the back and a double yoke just like a man's shirt. The instructions are not very clear [even for this experienced sewer] so there has been much reading and rereading before it's clear what to do next but I have really enjoyed the challenge.
I've now ordered more felt in three other colours so watch this space....there will be more rabbits in the making very soon.
I saw this on Pinterest and it described moments of my week perfectly so thought I should share it with you.
There were moments of this too :-)
But mostly this describes me. I'm so blessed to be doing a job that brings me so much happiness.
And finally for all you animal lovers out there I thought I'd share these photos that Shell sent me of little Jet settling in with their 3 legged cat Monty. There have been a few 'moments' between them but mostly Jet has made herself very comfortable in her new home and has made friends with Monty.
I hope something I've shared has made you smile and you will now share your week's smiles with me by linking them below.
