WOYWW...

Well folks here we are on yet another Wednesday.....where do these weeks go?
I'm doing a picture heavy post today cos I had another wonderful 'Nanny Annie' day with the gorgeous twinnies yesterday so that means I will be playing catch up today with my sewing.
Firstly I'm sharing my birthday flowers with you all.  They were just too lovely to keep all to myself  :-)

On funday Monday this week we decided we would all enjoy a dumfing session [for those that still don't know what we call dumfing then you can click on the link on the right hand side to find out more  :-) ].  I'm still not feeling very creative and spend most of my crafting time lately following a knitting pattern so that my lack of  mojo hasn't been really missed. 

Our dear friend T, that joins us on our funday Monday sessions, bought me  this gorgeous birthday card to give me some inspiration so of course it would have been rude not to have used it.


So, using my card as inspiration this is what I came up with during our fun afternoon and I'm rather pleased with it.  I snapped it before framing it so you can enlarge it to see the beading it in detail.


This is the black frame I have put it in but of course it reflects the glass when snapping it.


Not all my knitting is as successful as I hoped...these are supposed to be a prem size pair of booties for Lexi but I feel they have turned out more like knitted wellies  :-)


This is what is on my desk today so if I fail to pop over to your blog to say hello this week please forgive me...I shall have to clear this mountain of sewing first.


Of course my Wednesday blog post wouldn't be complete without an awwwww moment.  This is a copy of the photo of the twins that was taken professionally in hospital.  
I just love it.  :-)







So folks,  before you pop over to Julia's blog please leave me a comment if only to say hello.  Hope you all have a great week and I will do my best to pop over to see what you've been up to when I can.
Hugs,
Annie x

Aww Annie, that photo of the two little one is so precious. Just look at the way she’s holding his arm…..so sweet.

What beautiful flowers too. They are so well deserved in my opinion, given what you’ve had to cope with recently.

Good luck the sewing catch up!

Love your picture, and I never knew I was a Dumfer too!. I bought a husky embellisher at one of the knitting and stitching shows. It doesn't get used as much as it should but I do enjoy it. Your makes are brilliant!
Love the awwww picture too!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I think maybe no mojo is more very busy at the mo! - hope you get to slow down a little soon. The twins look so very lovely together looks like they are going to have a very close relationship how special. Oh and a belated happy birthday to you :)

Kate said...

Love that photo, the way Lexi is holding her brother's arm is adorable.

Belated Birthday wishes ....sorry I have missed your posts this week so I now have had a wonderful catch up.

I love the stitched cards you recieved ...and the collage is one to frame ...but the pro shot of the twins on this post, is a 'one in a million'. Thanks for sharing your beautiful flowers ...I love basket arrangements but my cats like to rearrange them lol.

Your dumfed pic is fab - just your colours so get it up on the wall! Have a great day - I am a bit slow today!!

Polly Polkadot said...

I first found you through your dumfing! I'm hoping you will invite me round to have a go, though you do make the instructions sound so easy. Lovely picture of the twins too.

Karen said...

Absolutely lovely photos you've got - the twins look so cute cuddling each other. Enjoy WOYWW!

Julia Dunnit said...

Ah Annie, Happy Returns.what beautiful gifts from Jo and the pics of your houseful are just lovely.You almost make me look forward to being a Grandma! Gosh I love your dumfed pic - isn't it marvellous to be able to pick up and put down such a skill. YOur days are so full. there is no need to comment everyhere, you must have noticed how hard I'm finding it to do any blog hopping between WOYWWs..it has to be one or the other!!

Sarah said...

A great post and such lovely pics - the flowers and colours are divine - that card is stunning and so is your piece - just love them. I like the wellies - they'll soon be filled - before you know it!

Doone said...

phew, I just caught up on your week, I so love doing a weekly catch up of all your blogs each Weds, Jo's work is stunning, having seen it in real life I know the camera doesn't do her stitch work justice, I love your collage work too,
I suspect post trauma blues may mean inspiration will only come after a respectable period of calm and restoration..., happy birthday, and I am so so glad life is becoming easier and more normal for you all.

Oh what gorgeous photos - all of them! The twins are just so precious... I adore your beaded picture from the birthday card - absolutey stunning! And those fabulous flowers! Thank you for sharing them with us, and a belated happy birthday! Shoshi

Neet said...

Love your flowers, how lovely to have them gracing your home (which looks lovely on the fantastic picture Jo did for you). The professional picture is a very "aah" moment isn't it. Lovely! But .. the dumfing! So did you just dumf the flower heads and stems? That has me intrigued - they look like watercolour pictures. Absolutely stunning - one day I hope to be as good a dumfer as you are.
Thanks for sharing so much with us. Hugs, Neet x (133 this week)
