WOYWW.......

First and foremost I want to say I really hope our wonderful leader is now back home and making a good steady recovery from her holiday in the Spanish hospital.....you've been missed by all. xxxx

Next I am going to show you the latest bunch of yet more wonderful ATCs that have arrived through my door in the last week....



  1. Chris Dann
  2. Kezzy....thanks so much for all the gorgeous extras sent with it. x
  3. Anne
Thanks so much girls xxxx

 Then I would like to share with you the happy post I've had.  I follow My Fabric House on Facebook and was lucky enough to win this gorgeous pack of fat quarters.  It's worth checking them out if you're looking for fabric cos they have an amazing amount of fab materials at sensible prices.....I'm still doing a happy dance. :-)




And of course finally what is on my work desk this week?.......

 What is that? I hear you say :-)

I am designing a clutch bag for me to use at our son's wedding in August and saw an idea I rather fancied on Pinterest so I have been playing with two strips of wide ribbon and lots of pins to see what effects I can get. 

So with a lot of planning, an awful lot of pins, a few stitches and a few selected beads this is what I cam up with....



The fabric underneath is what I'm making my bag out of and the colours match my dress, jacket and sandals to perfection so I'm rather pleased so far.......

.....just got to make the bag now :-) oh and of course I need some of those big pants that hold everything in to wear under it all  ;-)





Well folks that's all from me on the creative side....I'm afraid the house moving fiasco with many phone calls to estate agents, solicitors and building societies still hasn't finished so it does tend to sap the mojo somewhat!!!....we will get there and when we do you will hear me from where ever you are in the world!!!

Please leave me a little hello comment so I know you've called by and I will do my best to pop over to say hello.
Hugs,
Annie x

hello. You did ask for one. LOL
Annie, that clutch bag is going to be a wow at the wedding. What a lovely idea and, of course, you are so clever to work out how to do it. Looks highly complicated to me.
I can't wait to hear those words from you that say the house sale is over and done with and you are both on your way. Still got it all crossed for you and storming still under way upstairs.
Take care - Hugs, Neet xx

Hi Annie, I think that clutch bag is going to be sensational! And how lucky are you - those fat quarters are gorgeous. I've had a quick look-see at My Fabric House ... lovely swatches and love that there are little lambs in every shot :) Sorry to read that you are still struggling with the house move ... when will it ever end??? Hope there's better news in the week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #59

PS: I'm also in the sewing room - corner actually - altering three pair of trousers for a friend!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

That is going to be a SUPER bag when you get it all sewed. And lucky you. Congrats on winning all those lovely fat quarters.

I'm not playing this week, but will be by bright and early tomorrow morning to join you in a smile or two.
