WOYWW....yes it's that day again :-)

What a difference a week makes. I can't explain why but, I do know that, when I need rest my door bell stays quiet, the customers don't come and my workload lessons. Feeling as rough as I was last week I was really grateful for the rest. Now, thankfully, I'm feeling rather better and think someone has told the world because most of them arrived at my door yesterday :-) My customer count is now up to 894!











Today I have to make 7 white tablecloths and 12 pale green ones for a newly built conservatory/restaurant at one of our local pubs, plus shorten 3 pair of trousers and re-elastic the bottom of a jacket. It will be a busy day hence my early blogging so will do my catching up on my blogging friends at break times during my day [yes, I do allow myself coffee breaks :-) ]













It's certainly a varied week as I have also made a blue Charleston dress for a ballroom dancer........






......... and a top out of a mini skirt for wonderwoman!

Never a dull moment at Sewing by Annie's :-)

Wonder Woman! Fantastic! I actually have a question for you. I want to learn the sewing machine and keep saying I am going to take my Mums old one to a shop to be tested to see if it works - she'd had it in her wardrobe for years, last time I remember her making something was when I was about 11, an indian costume for a school play - and I've had it under MY stairs nearly 3 years but OH says I might be better just getting a new one in the New Year but I wouldn't know what I was looking at or where to even begin. What would you recommend to a complete beginner that doesn't even know how to threadle a machine?

Kaz said...

OOOooo are you making dresses for Strictly?

Well done on your amazing customer numbers. I can spy 3 sewing machines and drawers that look like they have every colour thread in them. I'd love to rummage through those!

Hi Kaz...My motto is "if I dont have the colour thread then it probably doesn't exsist" :-) A x

I'm so glad you're feeling better, and glad too that you're doing so well with so many customers, even though it means more work! x

I know where to come if I want anything special!

Matron rather than Wonderwoman, though.

How can you manage to do all that in one day? You must be a much quicker stitcher than I could ever be. I guess you can also sew a straigher seam too! I dread to think what a hash I could make of those tablecloths!

The Great Dane has set up a 6' table in the guest room so that I'll have a place to sew..........so there's a nice place for you to sleep and work if you'd like to come on over and make tablecloths here!
