WOYWW.....

Good morning blogging friends.
Another busy week has passed and we are back to the best day of the week when we all have a good snoop round lots of crafting spaces.  If you are here by chance and don't know what I mean then please pop over to Julia's blog and join in the fun.





My new carpets are down and I'm thrilled to bits with them.  My sewing room looks so much bigger and lighter now and I can now honestly say I am on cloud nine every day...see prev blog to know what I mean :-) 





All my fitted cupboards under the window had to come out to have the carpet fitted under them so all my threads had to be bagged up :-#   As you know I do have an awful lot of threads and they filled 3 carrier bags!











So......Of course one of my jobs over the weekend was to sort all of these threads and put them back in the drawers......my OCD really did kick in Sunday when I did this  :-)  Don't they look lovely girls?  I normally say if I don't have a colour then it prob doesn't exist but believe me when I say there are times when even I don't have the right colour to use.












I have now also finished my Christmas card toppers and thought you would like to see the latest ones.  I rather like the colours of these ones.







This is what's on my desk today.  I am using some of my Christmas fabrics to make some rag wreaths ready for the Craft Fair at Montgomery on Sat 27th.  I love how using different colour combos make them look so different.  Which one do you like best?





For those wondering how my wounded soldier is....His index finger is still throbbing but I have a feeling having to keep busy over the weekend didn't help.  He had taken Monday off as a day's holiday to put all the furniture, pics etc back too.  Think he was glad to get back to work yesterday for a rest  :-)  Thanks for all your kind comments...I have passed each and every one on to him  :-)

I had my 2 little Granddaughters here yesterday afternoon while my daughter had  day surgery so I shall be catching up big time with my sewing today so will do my best to visit blogs at coffee break times.  Thanks for all who take time out to read my blog and leave me such lovely comments.

Fantastic room! I'm very jealous of your thread collection though, looks so pretty organised in your drawers too! :) x

Twiglet said...

Didn't we have a fab time with your two little poppets!! Those thread photos look like a rainbow!!

Helen said...

What a grand room now! Love your threads - very pretty. I adore the green wreath, but your toppers are the BIZ! They are fantastic.

Susan Allan said...

Lovely new room. I love everything you make. My jaw dropped when I saw so many bobbins of thread.
When I sew I fill my bobbin and don't change it until it runs out....I can't be bothered to match the thread. Do you think I am lazy or creative ?????????? Big question. I call it being artistic!!!

Your workspace is truly amazing.

I just love visiting your blog but today was a bonus. Loved seeing all your threads - cannot believe how many you have - wonderful! Never seen so many - and the colours!
Love those rag wreaths you are making, they are beautiful.
Quite agree that the carpet looks fabulous - can imagine how it has made your room look so much bigger.
Hope your wounded soldier soon has his finger back to normal.
Thanks so much for sharing.

Your room is brilliant. It looks so comfortable, stylish and new carpet as well... wow. Then I looked at what you have been creating and I so pleased I can have a peek. I think you need a room like this to create the beauties you have posted. All the best at the fair.

Hey Wispo - congrats on the new carpeting! Must feel great. Don't think I've ever seen so many spools of thread...they look like jewels. The wreaths are lovely. I've never seen these and am thinking #1 is my fave - pepperminty!
Happy WOYWW:)

I bet it feels great to be on new footing, huh? And that is a lot of thread!!

Julie M said...

The new carpet is fab, Annie - what a difference it makes, so bright. I am in awe at your thread collection, there is nothing as gorgeous as rainbows of coloured items, I would love to sit and sort them obsessively!!!! I also love your toppers and rag wreaths, lovely colours.

Julie

P.S. Made the mistake of looking at the injured fingers. Ouch. Hope they heal quickly and he doesn't lose the nails.

Ann said...

Sorry Annie, but I can't envy you all those threads! Now if it was a stash of wool or patterned paper, I would be very envious indeed ;)

You have SO much thread. I am in lust. And those wreaths in the next post are gorgeous. Sorry I'm so late getting here. You would think since I had most of my obligations out of the way, I would have freed up a bit more computer time. Unfortunately, what happened was, I was so far behind, I became overwhelmed. Will try to do better this week.
