WOYWW....

Another week has passed and  life here is always pretty hectic,,,,,that's the way I like it  :-)
This week has included...
  • Knitting
  • Sewing
  • Opening wonderful parcels of donated fabrics
  • Cutting out of very many little dresses for little girls in Africa
  • Gardening
  • Chopping down trees 
  • Picking wonderful fresh vegetables and eating them same day
  • Enjoying family times
  • Going to the cinema to see the latest Harry Potter film
  • Baking bread
  • Shopping
  • Writing yet more letters for solicitors to sort out our dear neighbours affairs
  • Oh yes....and a little cooking, cleaning and housework  :-)
How many hours are there in a day?  Did I manage to sleep?
What's on my desk today then?

Shhhhhhh....Please don't tell anyone cos I only have one pair of trousers on my 'to do' rail today.  Only a little picture cos I hope no one will notice  :-)



But I do have a box overflowing with ready cut out little dresses to run up and that's what I plan to fill my day with today.

And for all those who love to see a little of what's happening in the garden I just thought I'd add a couple of snaps to show you I'm in the pink today  :-)  Hope you leave a quick comment before you leave and pop over to Julia's blog to join in the WOYWW madness.  Have a great week.

scrappystickyinkymess said...

did your blog get a makeover? I missed out last week (seeing HP with DS - it was good, but the 3d effects weren't made the most of)

Look forward to seeing more little dresses. I look back on the days when DD would wear dresses quite fondly. Ah well....

I do love seeing pictures of your garden, it’s always so bright and colourful and it makes me smile so thanks for sharing it with use.

It still sounds as if you have a full day ahead of you despite your rail being almost empty, with all those cute little dresses to sew.

Happy sewing and thanks for stopping by this morning.

There's really nothing better than produce from your own garden. I used to love going out with a bowl and picking the peas when I was a little girl:) That pink glad is just gorgeous xx

Pam said...

Being a garden person myself, I love this post! The Glad makes me happy and so does picking veggies out of the garden and eating them the same day. I get a false sense of being healthy that way.
Great week.

Thank you for THE most gorgeous parcel of dresses for the pillowcase dress appeal. I am completely overwhelmed with your generosity. They are all beautiful. I have just emailed you too. The dresses should all be going off to Africa very soon. x

Hello what a busy week you've had. Love the photos of the garden. How wonderful that you are making all those little dresses. Thankyou for sharing. Anne x

Paula Gale said...

Hello Annie

What a lovely post and what a lot going on in your life (nothing new there then)!

those little dresses you have been running up are super - wonder if I could do anything like that... You'll be really proud of me cos I've bought some material to made a bag - also bought a pattern to follow - my first proper attempt at doing something proper. When I've done it i'll put it on my blog to show - unless I make a right hash of it!!!

So, watch out for some skype video calls when I get myself in a pickle!!!

All my love and crafting hugs

Paula x x x

I was exhausted just reading your list - great pics of the sweet little dresses you've made - you really are a superwoman! Love the colour of the gladioli - beautiful. Elizabeth x #73

Morti said...

Great space - the dresses are just brill! If I had some fabric I'd be sending it your way, but sadly, nil...

Serendipity Stamping said...

Soooo many little dresses!!! Is
this something you started on your own or is there an organization you send them on to? I may have missed something about them along the way. Beautiful garden flowers. I have nary a one this summer. Had several wildflower gardens when I lived in the midwest and I really miss them. Have a great week! #92

okienurse said...

Whoa!! You are one busy lady! I love the pics of the dresses to be sewn and the garden pics. Very nice. Sorry I am so late getting around but once again life has interfered with what I want to do! Thanks for sharing. Vickie

Kezzy said...

Wow you have been so busy. I have been catching up, your garden pics are gorgeous as always and those little girls dresses are so cute, not sure I have any material big enough as I only use it on cards. Wow your daughter is really really pregnant now 11 weeks to go, she really does look like shes blooming. Kezzy x
