WOYWW....

I have had a really industrious week.  I've made lots that I cant show you and I've used lots of snippets but can't link them on Di's blog cos they have to stay hidden....for a while at least  :-)

So what is on my desk this week?.....



Do you remember this from a couple of weeks back?
 Well, I have now used that yummy fabric and bits and made 24 completed ATCs for the 4th Birthday swap that's coming up next month and I've also made cards for them to go inside....wont show you them yet but here they all are proudly standing up in my little box waiting to be posted.
If you haven't sent me your details yet but would like to swap with me then please email me your details so I can add you to my list....I'm happy to make more if needed  :-)




Teddy hospital has been open this week



I had these two, very sad, special friends arrive needing loving attention because they had been attacked by a dog and  come off worse.  Wolfie had lost two eyes and his nose and little teddy had lost an eye and needed restuffing.


Here they are, all lovingly repaired and waiting patiently for their owner to come and collect them.
As you can see I get all sorts of jobs to do here and get trusted with very special friends to put right....I guess being a nurse in my former life helps when it comes to giving anaesthetics and performing life saving surgery.  :-)






For all those who left such caring comments last week I must add a huge thank you and let you know that Sam has now bounced back to full health....and I'm sure all your get well wishes played a huge part so big hugs to each and every one of you.

Thanks for dropping by to see what I've been up to this week.  If you leave me a comment I will do my best to pay you a return visit but I not only had the twinnie munchkins yesterday but they have an extra day with me today so it will have to be either tonight or tomorrow when I get round to popping in to say hello.

Hugs,
Annie x

Hi Annie so glad Sam is feeling better. Wow you did some mega good surgery on the teddy bears, I bet their owner will be so pleased :-). Wow your organised, I definitely want to swap so shall send my details :-). I have to admit I'm a little bit better organised this year as I have actually started ideas in my sketch book so that is a bonus :-) Happy Woyww, hope your feeling well, can't wait to see what you do with all those gorgeous ribbon. I have looked out for you while on facebook but your little green button hasn't been on, but that could be because of you being so busy. Lots of hugs coming your way :-) Kezzy xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

SueH said...

Well only a day late but at least I made it round………eventually!
Your life always sounds hectic to me Annie but it sounds like you’ve had an even busier week that normal……..Kiddies, ATC’s and Bears……..what next!
I pleased that you want to swap ATC on the 29th. I’ve done nowhere near the 24 that you’ve managed to make so I guess I’d better get my finger out.
Email me Here with your address and I’ll pop one in the post to you nearer the time. I’ll email you back with my own details.
Happy Crafting!

Neet said...

Sorry I am so late in posting on your WOYWW blog this time but I have been busy. I was away with some friends and then I went out for a meal and I met this lovely lady and her good man. All these things take time out of commenting you know. But they aren't half worth it.
It was great to see you.
You are putting me to shame with all those atc's ready - and judging by the photo above they will be gorgeous.
