WOYWW....

Happy Wednesday to one and all.  Firstly I must let all my concerned friends know that we were lucky enough to not be affected by the floods of yesterday thankfully and as they did back in July the water levels went down as quickly as they came up.  Thank you to those who left me comments yesterday.

I teased you a while ago with the rag dolls I had made for the twin's birthdays.  It was their birthday on Thursday [check out the pics in the posts below] so I can now show and tell the finished dolls and accessories.  :-)

Please click on pic to enlarge to read labels.

We bought Lexi a push chair and a little wooden trike with a trailer for Sam so they have transport for their new dolls  :-)  .... and I'm pleased to report that they love them all.




The new jars [alas plastic not glass] have already been put into good use...

I've replaced my smaller jars with the new large ones and, oops somehow, they are already full!! ....how did that happen?  :-)


Our fun day was rained off on Monday and none of my customers ventured out with sewing jobs through the floods so I set my table up to play alone.  You can see my embellisher on the table and my boxes full of yummy fabrics, all colours of wool rovings and dumfable yarns all spread around me on the floor.  Of course there was no point in clearing it all off for Tuesday as the munchkins came to play and the shop was shut so this morning I will be having more dumfing fun til my customers flood back with work for me.



The little dumfed dragonfly pic on last Wednesday's post sold before it had time to settle in the blog shop so I have now finished this one and will be loading it up in the blog shop at some point soon....Jo has already put her latest in there if you're interested.  I have put this one in a double mount so that who ever buys it can put it in a frame of their choosing.....everyone has a different opinion on the size/colour frame to use and selling them this way also makes them cheaper to post.

For those interested in why Jo and I are dumfing dragonflies you might like to read this link.

That's about all from me for today so if you'd like to leave me a quick 'hello' comment I will aim to pay you a return visit ASAP.  Have a great week.
Hugs,
Annie x

What a lovely post - the twins are adorable. Love the colour of their hair and those curls of Lexi's! They look quite happy with their new toys and I bet they have lots of fun dressing and undressing them in those lovely outfits.
Oh Wow, what a lot of dumping stuff you have. I thought I had a lot in my tin but nothing compared to you! Mind you you use yours mine just sits there looking pretty when the lid comes off.
Thanks for sharing Annie - Hugs, Neet 5 xx

I'm so glad you survived the rain, Annie. We have friends who live in Ludlow so we always wonder how you are all going on.
We've got several roads under water here still today so it's another day at home.
The twins rag dolls are amazing and I love their accessories. It still amazes me that a year has flown by already. I'm glad they had a great birthday.
Happy WOYWW

Lovely dollies.
Beautiful card - what is it about Dragonflies - perhaps it is because we don't see many

Cardarian said...

Oh the rag dolls are just fantastic! I would want to play with them myself! I am glad the floods didn't affect you - the weather was really bad! Ha, ha I keep on buying stuff for storage and when I do it is full! Huh!
Lots of hugs

Redanne said...

So glad that the rain did not affect you, it has been so terrible elsewhere.....the rag dolls are adorable, love their little sleeping bags. I just read the story you linked, it is so lovely and so is your dragonfly dumfing - gorgeous! Happy WOYWw, Anne x #65

BadPenny said...

What delightful rag dolls for the sweet twins. The news about flooding is heartbreaking to watch.

We used to have those large sweetie jars at school for loose change week. I had to count all the pennies collected !!!

jill said...

The rag dolls went down well with the twins i see. I wish i was a little more organised like you with your storage. happy crafting jill #28

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Love those rag dolls - and so do the twinnies by the look of things! I can't believe they're 1 already..wow, has that year gone quickly!
And I'm so relieved to hear that you're not flooded out...poor folk who have been. What mad weather it's been...

Gosh! how quickly did that year go! I can see that the twins loved their rag dolls, those sleeping bags are a
great idea! Chris 99

RosC said...

The kiddiwinks are gorgeous and they deserve really cute dolls. Gosh you're good at these little characters.

Lovely story about the dragonfly. They are just starting to emerge here and enchant our evenings with their silver darting. Love your dumfing - very clever.

Hugs,
Ros. #31

oh those little dolls are adorable and are the twins! I'm trying to re-organize with jars ... we shall see!

Di said...

Wonderful dollies Annie - and the dragonfly piccie is fabulous. So pleased you didn't get flooded. Hugs, Di xx

Elizabeth said...

Lovely post Annie. Glad to hear you weren't flooded out - when I see the reports on TV, it's always a worry to me, up hear in a reasonably flood free area, as to who could be affected.

The finished dolls are beautiful and will provide hours of fun to the gorgeous munchkins.

Love the finished dragonfly piece. Wise move not to frame them as the glass would be a transport nightmare. I posted a framed scrap page to my sister in London for her 50th birthday. I'd collaged photographs of her taken over the years. It was very carefully wrapped with bubble-wrap and in a box but it still arrived with the glass broken - such a disappointment for us all.

Thanks for your earlier comment. Off to take a peek at others now. Happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #77

The twins are adorable and they look gorgeous in the photo. The rag dolls remind of ones my mum used to make my kids when they were little.
Thanks for sharing your workspace.
Happy WOYWW and have a creative end to the week.

Hi the twins are gorgeous and certainly look as though they wee enjoying their party. Love the dolls you made them and the lovely extra outfits. Another beautiful dragonfly. Not surprised the one from last week went so quickly. Our garden was awah in places on Monday and water was rushing down the road - we are at top end of road. Feel very sorry for those who have been flooded. Anne x #134

Karen McAlpine said...

Oh, yes, I remember the jars from last week. Great way to use them. Super cute dolls!!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Oh, I am so glad that I caught the completion of the dollies. They are so sweet and I'm sure will be well loved.

And how is that new larger craft bins and bottles fill up the same day you buy them? That's so mysterious.

Happy playing!

Glad you are safe from the dreadful floods. I feel so sorry for all those who are suffering, some even losing their homes. I love all the bits and pieces you are showing us this week. Thank you for your visit, and you will be pleased to know that the tidy desk did not last long. I have been stamping, brayering (with my new Splodge mat) and using gilding flakes. I made the fatal mistake and forgot to hold my breath so I have gilding flakes everywhere. Have a good week with all your dufing. xx Maggie #100

Danielle said...

The dolls and all of their accessories turned out great! I bet the twins really are going to treasure them. Happy WOYWW!! Dani123
