WOYWW....

How is it the song goes?....'the lunatics are taking over the asylum'  :-) :-) :-)

Well that's a little how I'm feeling this morning.  I really do wish my customers would speak to each other and space out my work load.  At the end of yesterday I had piles of customers clothes everywhere waiting to be labelled and hung up on my 'to do' rail.  They had all come at once and I hadn't had time to hang them up between customers!





My 'to do' rail was already pretty full from the 4 customers that had been in the morning but....




.....the back of my chair was piled high with trousers, jumpers and jackets and.....




....I could hardly see my ironing board for the really huge bedspread that I have to alter.



Jo has managed to pick me up some gorgeous coffee coloured material for my next batch of dollies.....but of course these will have to wait for now.  I am doing my best to make them in different skin tones because I feel this important.




I've even had a visit from the Gruffalo who needed the end of his tail and a horn stitching back on.....

..... and a little devil who needed a stitch or two in one of his horns.



In between sewing jobs and in my spare time I'm also sewing beads on Michelle's wedding veil...it has 20 scallops round the edge and in each one I have put a combination of 6 beads like these with a crystal pear drop bead in the middle.  Now all I have to do is sew the other 200 crystal beads all round  :-) :-) :-)









So, you will guess where I will be today. Thank you for dropping in on me and for leaving your lovely comments.  I really do appreciate them.   I will do my best to drop in on as many of you as I can during my coffee breaks but if you don't get a visit from me this week please forgive me.  

Hugs,
Annie x

Lovely to hear about all those machines, and better still to see all the work waiting to use them. All you need now is the Gruffalos child to call by ...

Anesha said...

Looks like a very busy space. Beautiful beads on your veil.

Hazel said...

You're certainly very busy with all the sewing jobs and the beading for the wedding veil is super, but so much work involved - hope it goes well. (Hazel, WOYWW #5) x

Neet said...

I want some of your "days" - not for sewing but for all the hours you have that mine do not contain. Youu do so much, you are a treasure.
Love that veil, what a heirloom that is going to be and what a beautiful bride.
Thanks for sharing your workroom and thanks for your visit to me earlier. Hugs, Neet (playing catch up) #19 xx

BadPenny said...

The wedding veil is going to be stunning.
It's like that at the shop - either no donations at all or so many we can hardly move for bags & boxes !

ScrappnBee said...

WoW! I suddenly feel like I cannot complain about being busy! LOL! (Am trying to figure out how to turn off the word verification thing...sorry. Unfortunately tech savy is not me!) The veil is coming along beautifully! I am sure it will all be amazing when done! thanks for the peek and for visiting! -AManda #80

200 crystal beads - that will take you an hour or 10 but well worth it in the end as the veil will be beautiful, as I'm sure will be the bride.

My goodness, you are one busy busy lady today! And I suspect for the rest of the week, too. They say idle hands are the devil's tool so you won't be getting any visits from the devil soon (that and apparently he's naked right now). Happy WOYWW!

CraftygasheadZo said...

Sounds busy, those beads for the veil are gorgeous. Happy Wednesday to you, enjoy your snoop around the oh so creative desks and take care. Zo xx 83

Bugged Designs said...

Blimey, plenty to keep you busy there! Well done of getting through it all (as in your next post)

SueH said...

Oh Annie, what do you mean, in your spare time you’re sewing beads onto Michelle’s Vail…….you can’t possibly have any spare time. It makes me feel tied just reading about the amount of work you have to get through but at least it’s all very varied though, so not much chance of getting bored.

Thanks for stopping by
Happy Crafting!
