WOYWW....

Hi friends. Here we are at another of our fun days of the week when we all link up for snooping fun and games.  Please pop over to Julia's to check out the details and to link up to join in the fun.

So here's my desk today...


So there you go....feel free to click on the picture to have a closer look or just have a glance at the snaps below for a bit closer detail.



I've played with the dolly pegs you saw on my desk last week.  Put them together with some paint, a bit of felt, a length of shiny ribbon and rather a lot of....




......glue.....yes some of it did go where it was meant to!!



 And I've managed to make 5 little Christmas tree hangers for 5 special little people in my life.....hope they like them. I always make each of them a little something to go on their trees every year...memories in the making for them.



My next project is to use these gorgeous wooden beads.......




....plus some of this bag of cord scraps [I knew there was a reason I saved this].......



5 sets of wooden chop sticks and........

Well ?!!, I'm still playing so watch this space to see what develops.






Thanks for dropping by again this week.  Hope you will leave me a comment to say you've called by so I can pay you a return visit and do call back next week if you want to see what develops from my fun and games here at Sewing by Annie's.

Hugs,
Annie x

Glad to hear Jo's and your daughters surgeries went well. Good for you getting away it sounds like you needed it! Talk about stress! Have a great week. Vickie #17

Those tree hangers are brilliant. How lovely for all your grandchildren to start collecting a set of decorations, with such special meaning. I didn't start that tradition until I had my own children. My tree was rather bare when I first left home!

Oh, Annie - your nativity figures are so cute. You've given me a great idea, but it might have to wait til next year ho-ho-ho! Can't wait to see what the wooden balls morph into. Happy crafting, Chris # 8

Ohhh Annie, your Nativity pegs are gorgeous, you are so clever. All your beads and bits still have me baffled but I know you and they will turn into something gorgeous I know.
Have a good week.

I love how you have put all those lovely little things together from apparently unconnected bits and pieces. Those Christmas tree decorations will be treasured for many years, I am certain. Have a good gluey week. xx Maggie

Those peg dolls are adorable - why not make some to sell?
You know, I enlarged the first picture to see what the sticks were for, no wiser. Got down the page and I saw the sticks - thinking 'good gonna get to know' but oh no. Annie struck - keeping me in suspense for another week.
Have a good one - you are a love
Hugs, Neet 27 xx

Elizabeth said...

Seriously, the Nativity hangers are fab!

Wow! Love those tree decorations! Gluey fingers? Yep! Me too! Thanks for visiting, Chris64 x

Julia Dunnit said...

Well I can't tell what chopsticks, wooden balls and cord are going to become.! Love the nativity decorations, what a lovely idea, and oh the bliss of peeling PBa off your fingers after a glue session!

voodoo vixen said...

H Annie, love the tree decs for the littlies, perfect little memories in the making. I knew a Danish lady who made little felt decs for each of her kids all the time they were growing up and then gifted them to each when they left home for their own trees... fabulous idea eh? Annette #11

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Stopped by to say HI, and while I was reading, got the idea for the tree ornaments. I have a friend who one of these would be perfect for.

Look forward to seeing what all the other things turn into. I have chop sticks, so that might be something I would be interested in, too.

Saw also that your sis seems to be on the road to recovery.

Beth P said...

I'm intrigued... what are you going to make with those ingredients?! :D I'm staying tuned...

fairyrocks said...

This is a sweet project. Love the walk through. I started some decorations, but abandon it for a bigger project. I don't do that often, but after seeing these, you make me want to try again. LOL. Keep smiling and creating.

Mrs.D said...

hi Annie,

Love those little peg ornaments! Funny I showed off my clothes pins ornaments this week! We are kind of on the same theme here.

I LOVE peeling dried glue off my finger. I think it reverts me back to art class in grade school.

I'm slowly making my way around to desks. Thank you for visiting me earlier!
Happy belated WOYWW,
Hugs, Kay

Lisca Meijer said...

Oh those tree decorations are so sweet! Clever you!
Thank you for letting me look over your shoulder.
I'm a bit late, but as most people know, I take my time to read through everybody's blog. I love looking at photos, and clicking on links and even reading previous posts.
Have a good week,
Lisca#24
