What a busy week it's been so far....Monday was manic and Tuesday was no better.
My weeks story in pictures...

I finished my latest pair of little knitties for the twins over the weekend.

One of several batches of home made bread made so far this week...I rarely buy bread but who would blame me?  If this was smelly blog then you would understand.

The postman brought me a parcel Monday morning all the way from Penny [Violet-White] in France for me to use to make little dresses for the African girls.....Thank you so much Penny for your support....the world really is a smaller place.

By  the end on Monday Twiglet had helped me cut this material into 6 little dresses and 3 larger ones...plus another batch from some pale blue sheeting one of my customers gave me to use.

This little bird had flown into my sewing room window so I gently picked him up and he happily hopped up and down my arm while he recovered so Twiglet snapped a quick picture for you.

These three offered me no help what so ever and decided to just enjoy the sunshine!!

During Monday we had a visit from M so I snapped a quick pic for you to see how the twinnies are growing.  Bless her she has little room left and still has another 11 weeks to go/grow.  She came out with one of her friends [also 21 weeks pregnant] and her little 2 year old boy who needed his trousers shortening.....I can't wait to have little grandsons....little J was so cute and such a good boy.

During Monday I had soooooooo many customers and they filled my 'to do' rail with 3 curtains to shorten and 8 pair of trousers!!
I guess I don't have to tell you what I spent Tuesday doing.

So?  What's on my work desk today?

This lot has just arrived through my door and he would like these 5 pair of trousers all done to pick up later today!!  3 need either letting out or taking in and all 5 need shortening!!  Another busy day ahead of me!

Sorry my post is so picture heavy today but it was the easiest was of sharing my week with you all.  In my quiet times I shall be running up as many little dresses as I can fit in and am still accepting any donations of spare pillow cases or fabric so please hunt out any you've got spare and send them along to me....just email me for more details.
Before you shoot off to Julia's to join in the WOYWW fun just leave me a quick comment even if only to say hello.  Have a great week.

Thank you for sharing your week ... loved the photos telling the story. Fancy a wild bird perching on your arm.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

You are right - the pockets just add a little extra to the pretty dresses. Well done for turning so many out, it's such a great cause. After seeing your wool last week, I was inspired and have been knitting too. Haven't done any for ages and am really enjoying it! xx

Tammy said...

Oh you have a busy week, How cute are those cardigans! Thanks for taking time out to share happy Wednesday x

Those little sunbathing doggies are just adorable. I hope you didn't leave those fresh rolls lying around and smelling gorgeous or they might have lept into action! (well they would if they are anything like my little theiving hairy horror)

Hello Annie,

Another busy busy week for you! Those little baby knits are beautiful as are the super little girl dresses. I will hunt out some fabric for you now that I know you are willing to receive more!

Loved all of your photos especially the growing bump and your little dogs enjoying the sunshine!

Hope you have a great end to the week also!

Elizabeth said...

No need to apologise to me for the photos - heavens, I would be the last to complain :) They made a great post - and you are turning out to be your own one-woman sweatshop but those little dresses are just so cute, as are the wee knits for the babies. I well remember what it was like to be pregnant in the hottest months as both my children were born at the beginning of August - I felt like a beached whale by the end and I wasn't having twins!!

Sam said...

Crumbs you are a busy bee at the moment - and even managing to fit in bread making!! Have you got a longer day than the rest of us or are you just uber efficient (unlike me lol)
