WOYWW....

I'm a bit like a duck on water this week...I remain calm on the surface in front of my customers but underneath the surface my feet are paddling like mad  :-)  I'm sure I'm not alone.

Yesterday one of my customers had to make 2 journeys to her car to bring in all she had been begging from her friends.  She has previously already brought Jo and I several piles of bedding for our 'dress the girl around the world' dresses that we have been making and yesterday's pile way outweighed anything she had brought before.  As you can see my ironing board was loaded up with some really pretty sheets, quilt covers and pillowcases.  We have had to put the little dress making on hold to find time for all our Christmas activities but we do promise to get back to it after Christmas so this will all be put to good use.



Also this week this gorgeous little gift came through my door from the ever lovely Jo[zart].  As you can see she has made me [and Jo] lovely pin cushions that attach to our sewing machines...they also have a place for my snippers to sit in....this just might stop me loosing them  :-)  Thanks Jo.

In between my many sewing jobs I am also knitting like mad for the special little people in my life.  This is the second of these I'm knitting....the other has sneaked into the corner of the photo above.  These have to be finished by Sunday because this is our family day to all be together for Christmas so I'd best keep knitting ...and quick!



As you can see I still have a Mr Tumble doll looking for a home.  He is sitting here watching me type but would really love to find a new home for Christmas so if any of you know of a little boy or girl who would love him then please get in touch...he was made as an order but the lady let me down at the last minute so he is still for sale if anyone would like to buy him and I can post him straight away so he would arrive in good time for Christmas. :-)









Well folks that's it from me this week....I have a 'to do' rail to clear and rather a lot of knitting to finish so I must keep moving.  Please leave me a little 'hello' message before you pop over to Julia's blog to join in the WOYWW fun.
Also if you would like to give me your vote for my favourite dumfed poppy pic [and I know a lot of you loved it too] that I have entered into a Christmas party draw please follow this link and click on vote under my pic. [many thanks to all who vote for me x] 

 
Hope you all have a great week and manage to get all your Christmas crafting done in good time.Hugs,
Annie x

Lots of fun stuff going on around your place today! Love the poppies picture so I went around and voted even before I posted this comment! Wish I could get Mr. Tumble for my granddaughter but money is tight this year and I have already bought her other gifts. Hope he goes to a good home! Thanks for sharing! Have a great week and Happy Holidays! Vickie #35

Hi Annie - I'm like a honking goose on the surface and feet paddling furiously underneath too. Sheesh, too much to do in so little time! We'll manage, we always do don't we?! Happy WOYWW! Di xx

JoZart said...

I think you should get here and bring your jobs and you will get them all done without having to do anything else. Really bad weather here has kept us in so crafting has been my salvation or it could just be TV and reading. Glad you like the pincushion!
love joZarty x

Ann B said...

Lots of accomplishments and creativity in your world these days!

Elizabeth said...

Well, I didn't manage to catch up with you last week so took a trip through your most recent posts today and, boy, have you been busy ... I don't know where you find the time and the energy. Your little grandchildren are absolutely adorable. On to this post ... love the pincushion thingy Jozart made for you - what a brilliant idea :) Hope you enjoy your get together with the family this weekend and that you complete all the knitted goodies you're busy making on time. Elizabeth x #66

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I'm glad I got here before the voting closed. Yes, I voted for you and when I tried to use all three of my votes on you, I couldn't. So I only voted once. What can I say? I am obviously not a UK crafter (grin). Happy belated WOYWW from #5 and thanks for your visit.

Sew Scrumptious said...

What a fantastic pile of fabric you have waiting. You will be making dresses forever!! Thanks so much for all your support. I really appreciate it. Have a fantastic Christmas!!

Sam said...

Why do we do this? You know what they say... if you want something done ask a busy person!!! As you see I am late and trying to catch up before next week!!
