WOYWW.....

Some of you that visited me last week didn't get a return visit and for that I must apologise.....I was a poorly girl so I hope you will forgive me.  In fact I was so poorly that I didn't manage to do a Happy Friday post at all. :-(  It's really not like me but sometimes life has other ideas and rest was the order of the day....thankfully, although I'm not fully recovered I am now on the road to recovery.....these things take a little longer as you get older don't they?

So, you have come here to see what's on my work desk haven't you?



My cutting station was piled high and the whole room was a mess because my darling hubby had to sort out a little problem I was having with my new shelves....



Because of the weight of the little storage boxes that I keep on these shelves he has had to put some supporting brackets underneath for me....where would I be without him? [one thing is for sure all that I expected this shelf to support would have ended up on the floor lol ].


I have found a couple of little jobs that I could do while resting.  I needed storage for my collection of bobbins for my new sewing machine so.....a plastic sandwich box, my glue gun and some lolly sticks and job done :-)  I'm rather chuffed with the result too.

The other little job I've done this week too is to make two little tooth fairy pillows for my eldest two granddaughters.....rather pretty don't you think?

That's all from me for today.  I will do my best to get round a few more of you this week....promise.
Hugs,
Annie x

Hi Annie, so pleased to hear you're on the mend, nothing worse than being crook. You're sewing room looks super, it's great to have a handy man hubby, lucky you didn't end up with the shelf contents on your lap. Now you also just the cleverest to make a storage container for you bobbins. Have a super week, hope to get posting again on Fridays too, hugs RobynO#21

In wishing you a healthy happy new year Annie and I'm very impressed with your improvised bobbin holder.
There's a mahoosive clearing up session going on over at my place. If I don't surface before the end of January send in the rescue party
Glad well soon

So hoping you are back to normal soon. Nothing worse when feeling poorly then having ideas and not being able to do them. Love those little tooth fairy pillows. Great idea for the bobbins too. Just received 2 packs that came by boat 6 weeks...from Maylaysia I didn't know bobbins were different for each machine..but I switched brands from Singer to Brother. Learn something everyday. Best Wishes to You and Yours for the New Year.

I am pleased to see you are feeling a lot better Annie - hope you fully recovered quickly. Great idea for your bobbins and the little tooth fairy pillows are delightful.Anne x #34

Hi Annie, so sorry to hear you've been poorly and yes it does take longer to get over it as we get older.

Well you certainly put your time to good use. The bobbin holder idea is genius. The two little tooth fairy bags are beautiful. My goodness I'd have loved one of those when I was a child - quite magical. Hope you'll soon be fully recovered. Barbxx #28

I hope you get better very soon! I love seeing your room - it looks so light and spacious! Love those Tooth Fairy pillows! What a clever storage solution you have made too! Hugs, Chrisx #38

Angela Radford said...

Thanks for the visit Annie. I'm sure you will definitely have lots of crafty fun time with that lovely new work space. I thought it was funny there was nothing on Friday, thought you were having a little rest. Hope you're better now. Happy woyww, Angela x 32

Neet said...

Hope you are soon fully recovered - sounds a nasty one that you had.
Love the tooth fairy pillows and I am thrilled with the idea you shared for a storage box - clever you.
Happy New Year - Hugs, Neet 13 xx

lisa said...

Glad to hear you are feeling better, Annie. There's been a lot of it around lately.
Have you been overloading your shelves???? I think we're all as bad as each other aren't we. I know my hubby always makes all my storage extra strong, he knows me too well.
Love the tooth fairy bags, they are sooo cute.

Happy New Year
Hugs Lisax #18

Hi Annie. So glad you are beginning to feel a little better. Hope it won't be too long before you are firing on all cylinders! Cute little gifts made this week, and the spool storage is inspired! Well done. They come all unravelled if not kept neatly, don't they?
Take care. God bless.

Glad you're recovering, sometimes you just have to listen to your body when it says 'rest'... love your handy man - wish I had one of those sometimes!! Helen #3

Clair said...

Your storage solution is GENIUS. I would never, ever have thought of something that clever :)

Hope that you continue to recover this week - and, hopefully, I'll see you for my second WOYWW!

Hope you are feeling better soon. I love the tooth pillows. Reminds me I promised to make a tooth shaped one for son after his last tooth fell out. :)

Sharon said...

I'm sorry you weren't feeling well. Glad you're on the mend. The tooth pillows are perfect!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Annie, glad to see you are getting better and, yes, it does take us a bit longer to recover now that we are past the first flush of youth! Glad you didn't have the contents of that shelf fall on you to add to your problems ... what would we do without our resident handymen :) Have a great week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #59

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Annie, wow, love the bobbin storage, what a great idea. The tooth fairy pillows- fabulous! Glad you're feeling a bit better, I know just what you mean about getting better taking longer than you think! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #8 xxx

Hettie said...

Glad to hear you are now on the mend. I have been holding off ringing you until I knew you were better. Maybe on the weekend (hard day tomorrow!!)
Do you hire the Hubby out? I have a few problems with my shelving too!!!
Hugs

I had planned to visit sooner, but right after I linked to Julia, my electricity went off. It came back on a short time ago, so now I'm trying to catch up with everyone. I would be pleased, too, if I had that many extra bobbins. Your storage solution is superb. Glad your DH was able to fix the shelving. If it had been my house, I'd have had to do it myself! Thanks for visiting while I was in the dark. Happy WOYWW Thursday from #1.

I think you are being too hare on yourself! And I do hope you get feeling back to your normal self soon! I love those tooth fairy pillow, very cute idea and make for a a family heirloom. Diane #35

Laura said...

I must say that scalloped bunting on the shelf is gorgeous!
Hope you are back to normal soon, go easy on yourself x
Thanks for stopping by mine

butterfliecrafter said...

how inventive your bobin box and those tooth cushions are just too cute, my son could use one too, currently his mouth is filled with holes :-). Vicky#9

Julia Dunnit said...

Dont be stressing about visiting - you must concentrate on getting well and that probably involves rest. I love that you need shelf support already; I know you don't intend to go through this again, but you'd factor it in next time, huh! Still, it didn't create too much trouble. Better than a collapse!

peggy aplSEEDS said...

Happy New Year, Annie! Thank you very much for already visiting me!
Great job on the shelf supports. Looks like it will be able to hold a lot more now!
Oh, I loved the pictures of your grandchildren in your next post. Isn't it amazing
how they grow up so quickly?
Blessings, peggy aplSEEDS@6

Hi Annie, yes you have my sympathy too, you're so right the older we get the harder they seem to hit. But well done on resting, I thank you for he visit here too. I'm still behind wiht thus but getting there, love the wee cushions for the grandees too, beautifully done.
