WOYWW.....

Hello to all my blogging friends. [do check out the pic below for the wow factor]
This week I've ...
  • Had a trip to London to see Les Miserable...yes I actually took a day off to go  :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)
  • Made numerous more little dresses
  • Posted our latest 50 dresses to  Louise [do check out the pic below for the wow factor]
  • Cut out yet more little dresses from the latest donations of fabric
  • Picked fresh veg from the garden and tomatoes from the greenhouse
  • Knitted two fronts and started on the sleeves of a little cardie for one of the twins
  • Paced the floor on Monday night cos M was having contractions!!!  At 32 weeks I don't think so!!!!  Thankfully after a full assessment it was decided she had a wee infection and it was irritating her uterus so a course of antibiotics was started and she was sent home....thankfully she is now much better.
  • Oh and I've worked [sewn for real money  :-) ] each and every day apart from Friday of course.....customer numbers keep rising and I've got well over 1100 now!
  • Nearly forgot ....I've done a bit of cooking, baking bread, washing, ironing and cleaning etc in my spare time.
So what is on my workdesk today?

Customers sewing.....I've had some really lovely skirts and dresses to alter this week.


The latest donation of bedding to make little dresses given to me by another of my customers....I think we will be making dresses for years  :-)  It really is a very positive thing to do in your spare time.

These two little dresses were made yesterday from some of the fabric one of my customers gave me. 
 As promised here is a pic taken of M yesterday [32 weeks now so only 6 more to go til they induce her if she lasts that long!].....still in one piece after the excitement of Monday!
So as you can see there are very few dull moments here at Sewing by Annie's.  Please leave me a comment if only to say hello before you pop over to visit Julia and check out all the other WOYWWers.  Have a great week.

Busy busy busy... I love the new frocks. M looks well. See you later.

What a hump of a bump...how do they stay standing up I wonder. The dresses are just so fab and I even went and bought my bias binding yesterday. Will get the small fabrics off to you soon and definitely think about calling by when I'm up that way. Will also have a rummage in my under eaves fabric stash and see what I can find...
Thanks for sharing today.

Oh! So glad that M's excitement was only a false alarm! No need to rush...I am glad that she is fine. 50 dresses in the post! Goodness! You must be so proud! The newest lot are cuties! You need a holiday from all the busy work (at least the cleaning bit! LOL!). Thanks for sharing your WOYWW -Amanda

Kate said...

What a talented and generous woman you are, those dresses are all amazing.

My neice is now 30 weeks and looks a little bigger than M, but she is always in white and not sure if that helps slim the bump!

famfa said...

Phew, that was close. Glad M okay. 50 dresses. Wow now that's impressive.

angelfish said...

Wow! 50 dresses! You are both doing a brilliant job:) Glad to hear M is OK, not long to wait now xx

Di said...

I need a lie down in a dark room - your posting has worn me out just reading it Annie! Life is never quiet or dull - and busy hands are happy hands?! M looks great - I seem to have missed Monday's posting, my laptop has been in the care of in-house IT quite a bit. Off to have a look right now - happy WOYWW!! Di xx

JoZart said...

I was just about to say the same as Di in the previous comment... I was up at silly oclock (6am) with the Brighton Belles and now little'un has gone for a snooze so I'm catching up on posts but I am totally trashed now I've read your post. People say that I do a lot but you beat all!

You have been super busy! Very cute dresses!

SueH said...

I’m surprised that you ever have any ‘spare’ time Annie, it puts me to shame when I read all that you’ve been up to since last week.

I hope that M’s infection is under control now and she doesn’t give you any more scares like that….it can’t be good for your nerves.

Have a good week and ……….Happy Crafting!

Cute, cute dresses for such a worthwhile cause. Well done to you and Twiglet - it's an amazing output. Thank you so much for the bias binding machine heads-up, I'm definitely going to investigate that as I think you get a smarter effect with your own co-ordinated bindings. Have a great (and busy) week :D xx

Suz said...

Wow! you have been busy haven't you..so many little dresses!
The Bump looks a different shape too?
Sooner rather than later hey? lol
Big Hugs to all x

voodoo vixen said...

Aaaaw, those little dresses are the cutest, how very kind of you and Twiglet to work so hard at them and to make so many when you have such a busy life without the additional work.

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Sweet little dresses, and that BUMP! That's a bump and a 1/2. Lucky it hasn't been TOO hot this summer. Counting down now, I'll bet, in anticipation of all the pretties you can make for the babe.
