WOYWW.....

I'm a bit late today but I have a really good excuse.  I normally type up my Wednesday post on Tuesday night and put it to launch automatically so I can start my day's sewing first thing on a Wednesday morning but last night I had some rather special visitors that filled my house with love.  The two new additions to our family came to visit with their mummy and daddy and so did their big cousins with their mummy [still playing the waiting game for number 3 to arrive...it won't be long now] and to join in the fun their Uncle M and Auntie G came too.  The first fun gathering of the clan with all our children and grandchildren and very probably the only one while we only have 4 grandchildren cos little Steve will be coming out to play very soon.  :-)

How much love can you fit on one settee? It's only a 3 seater but I can count 8 on there if I can count the one tucked up inside his mummy  :-)
Big cousins enjoying a cuddle with their baby cousins.  :-)


Here is one very organised new daddy showing us how to transport twins.  :-)
The health visitor is really pleased with the twinnies cos little Lexi has gone from 4lb to 5 lb and her big brother Sam has gone from 5lb 13oz to 6lb 8oz.  What a great job M and B are doing.  

 On my desk today you can see the two boxes full of little African dresses all cut out ready to make....and this is just some of them cos Twiglet has lots more cut out and ready up at her house......looks like I have a bit of catching up to do with my dress making doesn't it?

Sitting watching me is the last Mr Tumble doll that I was asked to make.  Yes he is still here....because the lady that ordered him just never emailed me back! Why would anyone order something and then just disappear?
So if you know any little person who would like to own a Mr Tumble dolly then please email me for details....he will have red buttons when finished but these will be made of felt if the child it is wanted for is under 3 years old for safety reasons.

Well folks thats all from me for today....I have sewing waiting for me and the postman should bring me more gorgeous wool today to knit some chunky cardies with so I had better get moving  :-)  Thanks for dropping in.  Hope you all have a great week.
Hugs,
Annie x

Gorgeous family - I can imagine that there are a lot of busy days (and nights) ahead.

Carmen said...

I keep expecting you to have an avalanche of Tumble orders - my blog stats have gone absolutely mental the last week or so with people viewing that post. Don't know why - maybe because of Justin's new series? How could someone never come back for him :( Ruby still takes hers to bed!

Gorgeous piccies of the bubbies. Can feel the love positively pouring off the screen.

How lovely for you to have everyone together after such a difficult spell. Can't believe you are still sewing more little dresses - you guys have already done so much. Make sure you stick that photo somewhere you can see it everyday :)

No, it’s great to see everyone looking so happy at last and it’s fab news that the two little ones are doing so well.

Sunshine Girl said...

Fanastic day for you and fantastic news about Stephen arriving later too - bet you are still grinning ear to ear!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Wow, that is one fat little boy (in the post above this one). And coming from such a tiny woman, too. It's also good to read that the twins are getting bigger and your dresses have arrived at their next destination. Love that you have taken on the world, one dress at a time. I was late posting (not quite as late as you) and am late getting here this week. #11.
