WOYWW...

Well my blogging friends another week has passed and Wednesday has come around again.  It's been one of my normally busy weeks with my sewing business [ I now have 1050 customers!] but if you check out the previous post you will see I have also managed to find time to dumf my new poppy picture.  Neither Twiglet or I have felt very creative over the last couple of months but I feel we have how rekindled our love for our embellishing machines having sat one each side the table playing on our machines for our Funday Monday this week.


Of course a day of creative fun on Monday means I have to have a catch up Tuesday and of course while I am trying to clear my 'to do' rail the work keeps flooding in.  This is what my rail looks like this morning so it looks like I have more catching up to do today too.  The puffer jacket is loosing it's feathers having been used as a sharpening tool for a cat's claws!  I have to do my best to sew up the offending holes to reclaim the  jacket [over £100 worth and new so I think the cat should be made to pay  :-)  ]. I have another of these puffer jackets coming in later today too and that one needs a new zip so I'm  imaging yet more flying feathers!


I have nothing really exciting and creative to show you today but having now recaught the dumfing bug again there will be more to show you soon.  Thank you for dropping in to see me and leaving such lovely comments.

If you haven't already checked out the sale bargains in our blog shop then it's worth popping over to check them out.  The sale will only be running until the end of the month so don't forget to grab a bargain or two  while the sale is on  :-)

Now folks it's time to check out the rest of the wonderful crafting spaces that you will find linked together over at our wonderful leader, Julia's blog.  I look forward to checking out as many as time allows to see what you have all been up to this week.

What a lot of customers! All kinds of things pass through your restorative hands. I bet no day's the same.

Glad that you and Twiglet are back happily dumfing (fab addition to the language btw)

Hi Wipso.
You are both very inspiring people even if you have not been as creative as you would like. You have got me so interested in embellishing and I think I need one of those little tools with the barbs to get me started.

Yes, definitely make the cat pay, dock his wages, reduce his meal portions, send him out to work.

Have fun

I look forward to seeing creativity and dumphing soon but it's good to have good steady business meanwhile!
Love JoZarty x

karen said...

You have a LOT of customers! I can't even begin to imagine how you will repair a puffer coat that a cat has clawed up! As I said on your earlier post, I love the new poppy picture just as much as the old one!

Oh I couldn't do the feathers thing - have a real hang up about feathers. Once thought it might be a good idea to refill a feather pillow but chickened out before i got very far (oops - sorry about that awful pun)!

Spyder said...

Hi Annie, not popped by for a while. I stopped joining in WOYWW as I was finding trying to get round so many blogs was very time consuming even though I'm a lady of leisure! Anyway love your latest poppy pic and really enjoyed reading the 8 things about you :-)

I just don’t know how you find the time to have all this fun with Twiglet and still manage to run your business!

And I’m sure that if that puffer jacket belonged to me the cat would most definitely be lacking more than one of its nine lives. I hope you are listening Bo Jangles!

minnie_mac said...

Yes, like Karen, I'm wondering how you manage to repair these jackets.

Love your poppies in your previous post. Beautiful.

Oh I do love the poppies Mark II - very sweet. Do you like it as much, not as much, or better than the original?

Julia Dunnit said...

Argh, sewing up and not patching? And who's to say the cat won't do it again!! Hey ho, all in a days work for super Annie!

Cardarian said...

Well that must be quite a job sewing up that puff jacket - quite expensive too!!! So glad you made the poppies again - love that! I hope you get back your mojo and keep up the lovely dumpfing work!
Lots of hugs
Cardarian

Sarah Anderson said...

Great to hear your business is going well, even if it does involve fighting feathers lol

Mrs A. said...

How about dumfing the puffa jacket. Well at least you won't be able to see the cats claws cos it will all look the same.
Don't mention embellishers. I have put a cheeky offer in for an x demo! Watch this space.

Neet said...

I have one of those jackets (I think) - had it years. It is green and the kids at school used to call me 'the jolly green giant' - in a nice way (I hope). At least it kept me warm on bus duty.

Happy repairing - keeps the wolves at bay.

Elizabeth said...

That's a huge number of customers - you must be kept really busy. I just love your poppy project - it's gorgeous. Thanks for finding the time to share. Regards, Elizabeth #78

Nicky said...

Lol bet the cat thought a bird was still in the puffa jacket thats why it had a go at it - hope you clear the work rail so you can do some more stunning pictures like the poppy one ~ Nicky 24

Susan said...

A very busy WOYWW for you this week. Susan xxox #19

Sue from Oregon said...

Boy is that a ton of customers to keep you busy. Glad you and Twiglet got to do some serious bonding this week!

Morti said...

Good to see you're keeping busy though - I guess when funds are tight people want to save money rather than spend it and so the are far more likely to repair things than to throw them away?!
