Hello blogging friends.  Here we are at another of my favourite days of the week when we all link up and show a little of our worlds and creative spaces.

I have had another gorgeous ATC this week....I still have 5 I'm waiting for.  If you think you have sent me one and it hasn't appeared in my last few Wednesday's show and tell pics then it's got lost in the post  :-(

This is my gorgeous ATC Delores [Cardarian] sent me all the way from Slovenia.  I really love it Delores and appreciate all the hard work you put in to making it for me.  Thank you so very much x

The other thing I want to share with you this week is this really colourful dress I was asked to alter for one very special new customer of mine.  Isn't it stunning?......and all the more stunning when you see her wearing it....

She is an extremely talented song writer, singer and musician and travels the world performing.  If you would like to hear some of her singing and maybe buy her music then you can find her here on her web site.

I really do make some very special new friends during my working days.  :-)

This Friday afternoon I have a little student coming to pick my brains on running a sewing business [hope she's not too disappointed :-) ].  I love the idea of passing my skills and knowledge on to others so hope she enjoys her visit.

Thanks for calling by today.  As always, if you leave me a little hello message I will do my best to call by to see what you've been up to this week.  I've had two fab days of fun with the twins so today I must knuckle down and get my customer's sewing done.  :-)

Hi Annie, I love your latest ATC. Well done Dolores.
That is a very beautiful dress. I shap pop over to listen to the singer later on. For now I am flying around the earlier WOYWWers before I knuckle down to do some housework. Kate x #52

Only just got up Annie so will listen to the music after my shower.
What a fabulous dress. I wondered who was big enough to wear this but now I see she is only a slender person and it is absolutely stunning the way it is worn.
Beautiful atc you have there from Dolores.
Have a lovely week and enjoy Friday and your visitor.
Hugs, Neet 13 xx

Oh that ATC is beautiful. Dolores is really talented to create something so pretty. I love that dress and I see what you mean about the lady who wears it - she is so attractive and it looks great on her. I will check out her website as she sounds so interesting. What a wonderful opportunity to meet interesting people and share in their creativity by offering your skills. Happy WoYWW. Julie Ann #64

Love Dolores's ATC!
Your new customer is so beautiful and looks amazing in that dress.
I'll make you a book for your ATC, it will be my pleasure and far easier for me to do one than you as I have everything at hand and already know how to make it!

Love your latest ATC from Dolores, very pretty! The dress and owner are a stunner, aren't they? I'll have to show you my African skirt top and shawl one day, I had it made for me when I was in SA and its lovely.
I am sure your student will enjoy her visit and learn heaps from you!!

Winnie said...

Such a pretty ATC from Dolores! That cute face! Your friend's dress is so pretty, and you are right, she looks goregous in it. I will check her music at tonight when I am home (can't hear it here at work..). Enjoy the week! Winnie#86

What a wonderful outfit. Your work is so varied and although it must be tedious at times (I'm thinking curtains and trouser shortening here!) it does have its perks :o)

Hi Annie,

What a beautiful dress! She wears it proudly. Isn't it great to meet new people and learn about them.

I haven't joined in WOYWW as I really haven't had any action on my desk. I'm trying to get things caught up at work and I'm drained when I get home. It's been difficult.

Thanks for visiting me. I don't know how I didn't notice the designs before. Southwestern style is definitely not for me so I think I just didn't pay attention.


pearshapedcrafting said...

Wow! That dress is stunning for sure! Beats altering curtains! Chris117

Elizabeth said...

Hi Annie, it will be 'dressmaker to the stars' soon - that dress is stunning. Beautiful ATC too from Delores. I've just had a peek at your Friday Smiles post and guess what? I'm smiling :) Hope you've had a good WOYWW, Elizabeth x #72

Caro said...

Your ATC is gorgeous and that dress is stunning! Wonderful. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x (#132)

That's an amazing dress, hard to see what it might look like on someone so the photo of her wearing it is really great. Beautiful atc too, incredible to think what Julia started all those years ago.

I wish I could wear a dress like that without looking like a sack of potatoes! I'm sure you'll pass on lots of useful tips; I know I'm always inspired by a visit.

Thank you for visiting me and I promise to show you the finished torso.

Happy WOYWW,
Cheers, Rachel #53

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I love that dress...wouldn't be wonderful to wear something so bright and colourful like that? Instead of 'slimming black'? The world would be a brighter place!

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

I received your ATC in today's mail, so will post it next week. Thank you it is lovely and great details. Love the exchanges.
Wow I love the bright color and details in the dress. So pretty. You sure keep busy.

The dress is indeed stunning (as is the lady wearing it, she really 'can have it' and show it like it deserves!) Happy ~ belated ~ woyww and a hug from Holland. Marit #91

Spyder said...

I had a lovely one from Delores too! it got sort of trapped between the wall and the carpet so it could have been there weeks! (I'm know to be messy!) Bit late again but I'm slowly getting there, your lovely crafty space is always filled with magic! Happy WoyWW!?

Kezzy said...

Oh Annie how big are the twins getting, just seen them on this weeks smile, so cute. I missed woyww yesterday (just done it now lol) because I am really bad with my back, can't do much at all. But I have a smile on my face as my injections are on a week on Monday, so in 3 weeks I will be up and about. I am really impressed they lasted a lot longer this time. WOW that dress is amazing and I'm sure your student will be very impressed. I am making a mixed media cuff and have got my sewing machine out, I always think of you (just put a link to your blog on my woyww post saying you will be impressed lol). Hope all is well, take care. Happy woyww :-) Hugs Kezzy xxx
