Hello all.  Happy Wednesday.  I've got a manic week this week with lots of sewing so thought you'd like to see a few things I've been making and can now share with you as they have been seen by my son and daughter-in-law.

A few weeks back I showed you a moses basket that I had lined for the next little family member due soon.....well, here is the little quilt I made for it.

Under the hood were three fabric loops just crying out for three little matching elephants to hang.

I found enough fabric to make a matching snugglefant [to my own design] and cos I had just enough fabric and, in case he looses the one of course, I had to make two the same....it's what I do :-)

Here it is all ready to snuggle little 'Bert' in it and now it's been handed over at the baby shower last Saturday I can say his mummy and daddy were thrilled to bits with it.

They have also seen the Advent calendar I've made for him so I can share that with you too.

Forgive me for all the Christmas makes but I am now working on my first batch of Christmas cards too... a bit of applique and machine embroidery so far....more details to be put on before finished.

Sorry if it's all a bit picture heavy today but I knew some of you have been patiently waiting for the show and tells.  I have moved my normal sewing workshop from Thursday to Wednesday this week so will be busy all day today and have a very special visitor coming to see me tomorrow with rather a lot of sewing jobs for me......our very own Neet has been saving all her sewing jobs up and is driving all the way from Bolton to bring them to me.....I can't wait.

I will do my best to pop over to yours when I get the chance but please be patient with me this week as I may be a little late.

Oh Annie, you are some kind of special designer. Your items are all lovely. Very creative mind that you have.And your taste in colors is always so unique. Have fun with Neet it will be a great break. I'm just happy to have "Time" once again. Enjoy

Neet said...

Oh Annie, I cannot wait for tomorrow either. Might have to bring my hottie to warm up in the microwave if that is ok. Just going to sort things out and bag them up.
Love love love the Moses basket makes. What a lucky family they are to have you making such beautiful things for little "Bert" Those effa-lumps are adorable and the whole thing is just co-ordinated perfectly. Imagine what something like that would cost in a shop!!!
See you tomorrow all being well.
Love, Neet xx
ps thanks for the visit to my blog xx

Hi Annie, I can see why they were so happy with all the baby stuff. So sweet, and the little elephants are a fantastic touch. Very sweet little robins! Give Neet a gentle hug from me won't you? She is such a lovely lady, met her back in April or May at Happy Stampers. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #6xxx

Happy WOYWW. That moses basket is just adorable. I would be thrilled with it too. I think I need to go down the batch route for Xmas cards this year - I tend to try and make each one different and then end up making very few. Ali x #25

Well, good for Neet - that will be a lovely gossipy session, how fun. Love the little fat robins. Love the Moses basket, not remotely surprised by how pleased you made the baby parents, such a hare loom.
Busy you may be - but you must remember to break too, youre no good to anyone if you're exhausted!

Oh Annie you are so awesome. I did buy an metal advent calendar I was going to paint but haven't done anything towards Christmas yet. Love all the baby stuff you have made and all the thoughts down to the tiniest details. I bet they are really proud of the basket. Have a great week. Vickie #45
