Well?  What did you do with the seven days since last week?  It's flown hasn't it?....or is it just me?

I have a rail full of posh frocks to show you today...

The one bridesmaid dress you saw last week is now three and I still have two more to do for the same wedding.  There are two long sparkly dresses for a lady going on a cruise and a really pretty shorter dress being worn by her daughter on the same cruise.....and in between all those I've shortened trousers, altered a skirt and several other smaller jobs too.

On my desk are several pieces of fabric ready for little Phoebe and Lulu to choose the ones they want their new swimming bags to be made out of....and their swimming badges to be sewn on.  :-)

The other pic I know many of you will want to see is of the little furry baby we went to visit at the weekend.  Little Milly is such a little cutie pie.  We had lots of cuddles and she even fell asleep in my arms.  We still have 4 weeks to wait til she can come to live with us but thanks to Rachael, her breeder, we get regular pics to update us on her progress.......exciting times :-)

That's all from me for this week.  I will be AWOL next week but would like to wish you all Happy Celebrations for our 7th year of WOYWW friendship and fun.  If there is anyone who is wanting to swap ATCs with me who's name isn't on the list below then please either email me on wipso@toucansurf.com or let my much older sister, Jo know because I have put her in charge of posting all I have put ready for her and she has a few spare ones she can send out in my absence.

You don't let much grass grow under your feet, do you?! Lol! Those bridesmaid dresses are really lovely and I don't normally like the colour coral very much. Milly is so gorgeous, you're going to be so happy when she finally comes home with you :-)
Have a wonderful holiday, you deserve it and thanks for your support today,
Hugs, LLJ xxxx

Morning Annie. That little one is rather cute, isn't she - with her little pink tongue sticking out at everyone, she is obviously already a real character! What a wonderful rail full of clothes there - and so much achieved during the week. Tell me, though.. do you ever stop??
Have a great time away - hope you are going somewhere wonderfully warm and sunny!
Take care. God bless.

Hello Annie. You are so busy - I do like those dresses. Milly is soooooooooooooooooo cute :-) Have a wonderful holiday - well deserved. Anne #24

Angela Radford said...

Hi Annie, the dresses look gorgeous and Milly even more so, she is a sweetie. Bet you are looking forward to getting her home. When we got the first of our two we were advised to get one of those crate things which I wasn't sure about but as I'd never used them before. It's the best thing ever and they love it. We just say to them both "where should you be" and they rush in ready to get food or treats, Maisie goes in there at night before it's even lights out. Have a great woyww and happy crafty week, Angela x 21

Hi Annie, no, you are not alone, I have no idea where these weeks are going, truly. Smashing pic of your new pet. How sweet is he? Have a lovely break, Hugs, Shaz #2 xxxx

Aww! Isn't little Millie cute! I fully understand you can't wait.
Wow, those are pretty frocks! Are you sewing them from scratch or altering them? Even so it's a lot of work there this wedding season.
The grandies will love their swimming bags. The fabric is so nice I wouldn't know which one to choose.
Have a well deserved break, and thank you for visiting,

Christals Creations said...

You have been busy!
I hope you are AWOL for good reasons.
See you soon.

Mrs.D said...

Gosh Annie you have been very busy, I think I counted three dresses before the picture disappeared. Very odd, and I never saw a picture at all of the little one.
Those fabrics look good for swimming bags, especially the butterfly one.

Elizabeth said...

Gosh, Annie, you are busy. Are you sure you have time to go on holiday? Though I'm sure you deserve a break. And just think, when you get back you will be two weeks nearer picking up little Milly who looks absolutely adorable. Have a wonderful holiday. Hugs, Ellie x #41

Chrysalis said...

Wow, Annie, you've certainly been busy. I love the colour of the bridesmaids' dresses. Milly is so cute - bet you can't wait for her to move in! Happy WOYWW xx

Little Milly is starting to overtake the grandees for cuteness!! Can't believe I said that....thanks for putting me on your list. Had previously commented to twiglet and it was organised I would just send her two atc's knowing that she would pass one on to you. Have a lovely week.

Hi Annie,
The dresses for the wedding are beautiful. What a project to take on! Also, I'd like to see what you make for the woman and her daughter that are going on a cruise. I don't "dress up" on the dressy nights; just a black skirt or slacks with a nice blouse.
Little Milly is adorable!

Thanks for visiting me already,

Nikki C said...

Lots of dresses. Your new little fur baby is just so darn cute and tiny Awe hugs Nikki 8 I've sent the atc off in the out already may they arrive soon too

Neet said...

Hope it is a case of 'better late than never' - sorry I am so late but with being away ...
You sound as if you are a real busy bee these days - and I have some things wanting altering - any chance?
Glad business is brisk - the dresses you are showing us look lovely but I think Millie steals the show - bet you do too.
Hugs, Neet 10 xx
