WOYWW....

Good morning fellow WOYWWers.  So much happens between our Wednesday visits.  There is always something going on here  :-)

My pics to share today are.....


This is my  latest finished LillyBo quilt...Number 9

Do pop over here to find out more and hopefully you will make a quilt to join in the fun for this well worth while cause.

It has little zoo animals on the printed fabric so I have made a........


....little stripey Zebra sock puppet to go in the pocket of the bag [that I've yet to make!].  We are hoping to take our latest quilts up to Liverpool to meet Jo[zart] in person while she is in the Abakhan store doing her quilt making demo.  I'm so excited at the thought cos I've spoken to Jo many times on the phone and we have shared years of emails and blogging but as yet never actually met in real life.

The other fun thing I've been working on lately is my "Nanny Annie's Fun Book".  I have plans to make several activity pages for my little Grandees to play with and this is the first one well on it's way to being finished.  I found the idea over at Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows and have lots of different pages in the planning.  I will be including all sorts of fastenings and covering topics like colours, shapes, numbers etc.  I will make at least 5 pages before I let them loose on the little ones so there's no falling out
....well that's the idea  :-) :-) :-)



The other quich pic I'm sharing today is one of a little visitor pinching my bird food.  Cheeky little monkey sat there for ages and didn't mind me getting up close to snap him through the window....in fact I think he even smiled!!!













Thanks for calling by today and leaving me such lovely comments....I will be doing my return visits later today as I have a busy day planned.....more about that another time ;-)

Hugs,
Annie xxx

Great pic of the squirrel... I would have a real problem not letting them eat the bird food, they are so cute! Annette #9

Lovely quilt and what pleasure that sock puppet will give.
That last picture - I know I am a bit bleary eyed but maybe if you squint at it you will see what I did. I thought they were bushes trimmed to look like elephants in a row. The feeder was by the trunk and the squirrel's tail was the ear. Ok, I had better go back to bed.
Have a lovely day with your sis.
Hugs, Neet 25 xx

Hello, I am sending this to everyone. Im sorry I am not going to be able to get to all the desk and I have now lost my sheet of paper that I was writing them down on. I don't think my cat is going to make it through the night to even see the vet. She is old just like my dog so I guess they are going to get sick at the same time or so. I just going to copy and paste and sorry to every one that I didn't get to read.. I just cant do it right now. Thank you Roberta 40 and bright blessings to all.

Hi Annie, I'm late this week but still had to pop in, and then got distracted with the link to LilyBo quilts :) Another super quilt and the little one that get this will be delighted with the sock puppet too. Great pic of the cheeky wee squirrel too. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Elizabeth x #59
