WOYWW...

Phew....it's been another of those weeks when there's been lots of change and not a lot on my desk that I can really share with you except this....


I've finished the little hoody and made a start with a little cardigan in a cream wool with pretty flecks of colour.....looking good so far :-)





My other 'work desk' for this week has been the living room.  We have put a plain wallpaper on three walls and the fire place wall is now a feature wall with the poppy wallpaper on it....you all know how much I love poppies don't you?
We have new matching red curtains now too and we both really love how our new home is taking shape.













I have other really exciting news to share with you too.  Yesterday I went for an interview at a Wedding dress shop that is opening a few miles from us.  They were looking for a seamstress to alter their preloved top designer dresses and they are happy for me to join the team.  The brides will be bringing their dresses to me, I will be doing the fittings in my sewing room and will be able to take on as much work as suits me so I'm thrilled to bits......so I may well be sharing some really posh frocks with you some time soon.....I'm doing a happy dance here and hope you will all feel excited for me.
Hugs,
Annie x

That's wonderful news Annie. What a wonderful talent you have. You and Val who makes my curtain frocks would hav loads to talk about as she does the same thing. She gives me all the offcuts for my craft ladies to use, which is quite handy except it means my place is even more cluttered haha.
Have a great week. I'm off to Montgomery tomorrow for a few days so won't be signing in on Friday. I'm on a craft workshop at Indigo Moon

A big happy dance downunder too, how wonderful to have steady work and not of the "taking up curtains variety" ;)

Hi Annie, I saw your FB post yesterday, I'm so happy for you!Love how you are 'settling in' to your new home. It takes a while after actually moving in for it to feel like that, I think. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #3 xxx

Elizabeth said...

Firstly, many congratulations, Annie. I'm so delighted for you and look forward to seeing lots of very posh frocks. The little knitted is looking good indeed - I like the warmth of cream. Love the poppy paper - they are my favourite flowers too so I'd say a great choice :) It took me years to really get into scrapbooking after first discovering it whilst in America in 1995/6 but I'm glad I've stuck at it. Have a great week. Hugs, Ellie, x #33

Congratulations on that fab job. the little coat looks adorable. Sorry for the late post - thanks for your visit earlier today . soojay xx

Julia Dunnit said...

That is great news Annie, a bunch of designer dresses to alter...my idea of hell! When people discover that I sew, I always have to qualify it with 'no alterations or repairs'!!! Well done!

JoZart Quilts said...

Everything is certainly coming up roses (or poppies in this case) for you. This house is a new start all round with a new baby coming and now a lovely new job too. Your living room is looking really lovely and the baby hoodie is fab. Great all round!

Oh Annie, I'm glad you are pleased with the idea of altering wedding dresses, frankly I'd much rather make them from scratch. But looking forward to seeing the lovely dresses you get to alter.
