Happy Wednesday to all who pass by here.  Another week has passed and there have been more fun times to share.

Sunday was spent dodging showers and our gorgeous little boy [now  of course 23 and quite a hunky young man!] came to help his Dad dig fence post holes ready to put up a new fence in the back garden......sorry girls he refused to take his top off for you  ;-)
 ....and as you can see they managed to get most of it done....think I must have taken the pic at an angle cos that last post looks wonky and I can assure you they were all very carefully put upright my the two fencing experts :-)

Twiglet and our friend T joined me for our Funday Monday.  This was the first time we had all had a Funday Monday since the beginning of April so, as you can all imagine, there was a lot of catching up to do.  I'm afraid to say that I have no crafting to share with you....cos none was done!  I sat knitting and the other two sat browsing magazines while we talked, giggled and caught up with all the good news, sad news, frustrating news and of course exciting news [that's my fav kind].

Thankfully I had only a few customers on Monday so that Tuesday came with very little catching up of the sewing jobs because it was another FUN day for us  :-) .....yes folks a girl can never have too many fun days.  Twiglet came down to join me [again!] and we had two little visitors for the day.

Little P enjoyed a special time with her Great Auntie Jo and I know the feeling was mutual.  :-)

Little L is so nearly walking but is still very happy crawling from one lot of mischief to the next  :-)  Just wish I had half their energy.

So folks as you can imagine with such a fun day yesterday, and I have to add I had loads of customers, I now have lots of sewing to be going on with....plus on top of all that I had an evening dress and a bridesmaid's fitting yesterday, another bridesmaid today, another bridesmaid tomorrow and on Friday I have a bride and a bridesmaid's fitting.....oh and at some point I have also got a prom dress to do a fitting on!  I have a feeling someone is trying to tell me I have had enough fun for one week  :-)

Lastly I just wanted to say I have now finished my WOYWW PIF gift and thought I would tease you all with a sneaky pic of just a little of it  :-)

Do pop over to Julia's now to join in the WOYWW fun.  Have a brilliant week and thanks for calling by.

Di said...

Am soooo wondering what the sneaky peek is. I think I might have it sussed but not fair to say - maybe we could have a little bet on the side A?!

That fence looks great, and I do quite like the brawny arms working on it :)

Have a super day honey! Di x

Kate said...

Hi Anne, back online after an enforced shutdown and I have been reading back over your blog for the last couple of weeks.

Lovely to see the baby bumps blooming and I can see from all the knitting you are very busy.

The little prayer is very inspirational and I truly hope you will continue to do what you do.

Lovely post and great to hear about all your family fun. Sounds like you are going to be mega busy from now on in.
BTW.. please could you send that nice young man round, with or without his shirt and preferably with a spade and a box of tools.
Love JoZarty x

Doone said...

crusing the sofa we used to call it, and I can't imagine being able to keep uo with a little one these days... So nice to be able to have all my dangerous stuff out , I'll have to have a scodn home that is a 'safe zone' when the time comes... if ever,

it's odd seeing our children become grown ups, as we reach our second childhoods...

happy weds,

SueH said...

Like they say Annie, it’s good to talk, so that fact that you spent your ‘fun day Monday’ just chatting is a good thing. Given that you’ve not got together for some time, you must have has so much to talk about and I bet you were all struggling to get a word in edgeways Lol!
Happy WOYWW!
