WOYWW...

Sewing by Annie is still in total chaos....I'm working out of boxes and of course can never find the box I'm looking for!  Still no moving date but our survey is being done on our new bungalow today so I'm keeping everything crossed.  We have now taken 21 car loads of stuff to the local tip and, as our kids say, that surely means there really wont be such a lot to move when the big day eventually comes lol.
 Please help yourself to a mask...
I am full up with a miserable head cold at the mo with a dry sore throat and earache which isn't helping but as always I'm keeping busy with my sewing jobs and still finding time for fun too  :-)  


This is the latest addition to our pixie/fairy world.  I saw an idea on Pinterest and decided I could design my own without a pattern and adapt it to suit us.  I have crocheted the tree house and stuffed the top half and then fixed a savoury cheese biscuit carton in the lower half.  I may make a little swing to fit on the broken tree branch for added fun  :-)


Of course I also need something to keep me awake in the evenings so have decided to knit another of my favourite baby blankets...we do have rather a lot of babies expected in the next couple of months so I'm sure it will be put to good use.  :-)




It's just a quick update from me for this week as I'm feeling pretty fed up with this head cold and don't want to pass it on to any of my blogging friends.....hope you made use of a free face mask for your visit today.  Thanks for dropping by...I will do my best to call in to visit but promise not to sneeze over you.  :-)
Hugs,
Annie x

Hi Annie! Roll on moving day - bet you can't wait now. Shame about the cold though - I left my mask by the door as I left! Get well soon.

Hello Annie and sorry about the cold - get well soon! (Think I might have one lurking) You are always so busy making - all so lovely. Hope you get that moving date soon. Hugs Anne x #49

Hi Annie. Sorry you feel so miserable with that cold. Confess I did use a mask - trying to keep infections and hubby well apart at the mo!
That blanket will look so lovely - the squares are obviously done on the diagonal - but what is the pattern - they look great.
Trust you get better soon.

Keep smiling - even with a cold they will wonder what you are up to! x Jo

Julie Ann Lee said...

Thanks for the face mask, Annie! I am so sorry to hear that you're feeling poorly, especially as you are so busy. I've been awol for a couple of weeks so it's really great to catch up and see how you're doing. That little pixie tree is just gorgeous! I love the idea of a little swing. How clever you are! Have a lovely WoYWW in spite of your nasty cold. Julie Ann xx #54

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I used the antiseptic hand gel too as I really don't want to catch it at the moment! Poor you, hope it passes quickly.
That little tree house is fab! You're very adept at altering patterns, aren't you? That's a real skill, honed by your years of crafting. I can do it with some things but I'm not that confident going off piste with crochet yet!
Still got fingers crossed for the moving....
Hugs, LLJ 45 xx

Thanks for the lovely welcome back. Love your pixie tree and I have to admit to being a Pinterest addict but nothing I try ever resembles the original. I will slowly post some pics from the holiday in the US. All the best with your moving day.

Hope you feel much better soon Jill #49

Cardarian said...

No I didn't take a free mask - I am too far away to catch anything from you ha, ha...I hope you get well soon...love all your cute crochet things and if babies are coming the blankets will come in handy!
Thank you for calling in...
Lots of hugs,
Cardarian

Fab little fairy tree house! My you are clever and so talented! I brought my own mask as I have a large box of these too. Being allergic to fragrances they come in handy when I have to be amongst peeps. Take care Annie. Drink lots of chicken broth. Happy WOYWW! Nan G #9

MaggieC said...

Sorry to hear you are suffering, Annie. I bet the dust of sorting out and the tip does not help that either. I have been sneezing and sniffing too, but mine is hay fever, caused by the milder weather bringing the trees out into bloom - one of my biggest triggers. I hope you soon get your moving over and done with and can get back to living in comfort. xx Maggie #24

StampinCarol said...

Oh man... hope you get to feeling better. Your crocheted tree house is wonderful! (I used one of your masks so hopefully I didn't catch your cold.) Happy WOYWW!

Thanks for sharing even when you are sick.

Happy WOYWW

hope you feel better soon an d thanks for the mask very thoughtful. the tree house is fab what talent to make something so unique without a pattern..love the idea of the swing take care of yourself and hope you are back as good as new soon and the house sale goes ahead smoothly crafty hugs Andrea #17

BumbleVee said...

sounds as crazy as my house some days ...although no babies around so maybe it is easier with just teddies and stuff .. love the colour you are knitting... I have been trying to sell some of our original furniture as we now have new things...so the place is overcrowded... and people not showing up as promised is making me crazy... I'll soon call a hospice and just have them pick it up. In perfect condition and folks still think they need a bargain on top of basement bargain prices for perfect things...what is the world coming to?..well, come to for that matter...they all want brand new and get it on credit if they can't have it free from me....go on then..put it on your credit card people...see if I care!

Helen said...

hope you feel better than I do right now, lol, the cold has really taken hold during the day... which means little sleep again no doubt! LOVE the pixie tree house, that's so clever. Take care. Helen 7 (actually 6 I think now)

Neet said...

So sorry to hear you have a head cold. Try steaming with menthol or something, My sinuses are a mess at the moment so I have a ton of sympathy for you.
Fingers crossed for the survey and for moving date, 21 boxes to the tip!!!
Hugs and thanks for the visit, Neet 24 xx

Julia Dunnit said...

Poor Annie. Why not, for once, just give in and take yourself to bed rather than battling tostay awake in the evenings? I'm sure all the work and packing and keeping cheerful have taken their toll - go sleep it off gal!

voodoo vixen said...

I'm with Julia, sometimes it is wisest to take the easier path and just rest up till you feel better! Hope your survey goes well and you are on your move soon!
Just adore that little tree house, the swing idea would be cute too!

Spyder said...

Ohoo I love the tree house, I'm thinking I'd do a digi tree house! Where do I craft?? well....that little square in the picture!...I just push everything back a bit! (I really must tidy up!!)
Happy WOYWW!! #39

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Oh Annie, I feel for you. I hope by now you are feeling better, because it's already Thursday, which means I'm running behind.

I'm sure all my British friends know what a survey is, so I hope it goes well. I assume you can't move if the survey isn't good. I have my fingers crossed, too. It's time for you to be able to get on with your life. It's sort of like watching grass grow or paint dry. It takes forever.

Thanks for the visit yesterday, And I admit, you certainly didn't sneeze on me!

Hettie said...

Sowwie you are feeling poorly Annie. Poor fing you.
Love that tree house! Only YOU!

Tertia said...

Hope you are feeling better by now. The tree house is adorable!
I do not envy you the mammoth task of packing and moving, but its going to be great once you are all settled I am sure.
Happy very belated WOYWW!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Annie, I so hope you are feeling much better by the time you read this. And as for the moving and the trips to the tip ... it is all worth it in the end. I'm so happy in my new home and so will you in time :) I don't know where you are finding the energy to still knit and crochet but that little tree house is fabulous. A Belated Happy WOYWW to you.
