Good morning to all my wonderful blogging friends.
Firstly I want to say a big thank you for all your concern and lovely comments following my fall on Saturday morning and to say that, although a little more stiff and achy than normal, things now seem to be returning to normal [well, normal for me at least]....I have taken advise and have had rather more water with it since. :-)
It's been another week of busy activity here at Sewing by Annie's....more parcels have arrived with lots more gorgeous fabrics in them and many many more dresses have been cut out and put ready to sew....and I've even made a few more with them already.
So? What's on my workdesk today?
My 'to do' rail has yet more trousers to shorten plus this week I have a skirt to shorten and a gorgeous red dress to alter. I shall hopefully clear my rail this morning so then I can get making more little dresses.
Funday Monday morning Twiglet and I set to and cut out and bagged lots more dresses from the gorgeous fabric Twiggy and Karen sent us this week. We then set to and made 5 dresses between us during the afternoon.
Dress number 36 is made from fabric Penny sent me from France. It's a bigger dress for a larger child and I've trimmed it up with white bias and a pretty embroidery anglaise pocket.
Dress number 37 is made using fabric Twiggy sent and it is also one made for a larger girl. We aim to use the material wisely so as little as possible is wasted so the size of the dress is really decided by the piece material. This fabric was really lovely to sew and has trimmed up prettily with a bit of floral fabric.
This pretty little dress [number 38] was made using fabric Karen sent us and I've trimmed it up with pink bias and added a little pocket with an appliqued heart on it. Isn't it pretty?
Here is what my rail of little dresses is looking like now.

You can see 17 dresses in all colours and all sizes. Doesn't it make you smile? I'm so thrilled to have such a wonderful project on the go and am really loving every minute of creating each and every one so keep sending any fabric you can spare in our direction. We promise to make up each and every dress and give you the head's up for your kind donations.
I've just noticed my screen saver in the bottom left corner too....that's another reason for smiling :-) Aren't they just gorgeous? Proud Nanny Annie here :-)
Just a quick snap taken on Monday to show you that M is still doing a brilliant job of growing my grandchildren...and yes she is still smiling even though her iron tablets really are making her feel pretty sick when she takes them. She really does humour me when I ask for a new pic and poses for me to snap away....."thanks M. I'm so very proud of you. The apple will fall when it's ripe and it won't be long now."
That's all from me today [ I hear you say...'thats more than enough!!' :-) ]. Thanks for calling by. Please leave me a comment if only to say hello before you pop over to Julia's blog to join in the WOYWW fun.
