WOYWW....

Hello all.  I hope you're all having a good week and those that need one I'm sending you a hug.  I know some of my best buddies have been poorly and I hope youre now feeling rather better.

Now to what you have called here to see....my desk and all the things I've been busy with this week...





This is where I am working on today making three Christmas hangers but this is only the tip of the iceberg for this week.


I went shopping with that 'much older' sister of mine on Saturday and have now made 6 Christmas sacks [three of which have already been ordered] plus.....



.....5 Christmas stockings [three of which have already been ordered] plus...



....six little Christmas mice and.....



....four little gingerbread houses still needing finishing [plus many more cut out ready to make] and....



....a very special Memory bear for a young lady who lost her mum in rather tragic circumstances.  She brought me some of her mum's clothes to make it out of and I rather like how it's turned out.  Such a lovely idea to have something to treasure to remember her mum by don't you think?


Of course I have also been sewing for my customers too and have shortened, repaired and replaced all sorts this week but I'm sure you would rather see the creative bits I'm working on.






Thanks for calling by.  If you'd like to leave me a little message to let me know you've called by I will do my best to pay you a return visit as soon as I can.
Hugs,
Annie x

Chas made a comment when i showed him your post "Blimey, she doesn't hang about does she?" - that;s a compliment from him,
My oh my, you have been busy but what a lovely lot of Christmas colour it is. I love red and green, it shouts Christmas to me and your post is full of it.
Wonderful!

You remind me I have to start thinking up ideas for Christmas when I get back from hols. The memory bear is such a lovely idea and I am sure it will be most loved. Have a super week x Jackie 15

Happy WOYWW. Your level of productivity is so impressive. I will just admire your stitching from afar and hope that I at least make a few decorations for our tree this year, but I won't be promising anything (I bought the supplies last year!). Ali x #33

Wow! Busy, busy. . .and so much Christmas. I'm still trying to believe it's Fall! I love the idea of that memory bear. And, it turned out so lovely too! How sweet. You're completed projects put me to shame. I guess I better get busy too :)

WOW such a busy desk. Love all the holiday stuff you are doing right now. I am going to hang on to the fall holidays for a bit longer. I used to love all the making and doing for Christmas but not so enamored by it this year…wonder if it has to do with breaking my leg last year on Christmas Day? Thanks for visiting my desk earlier.

Oh Annie, the memory bear is just adorable and such a lovely idea too. I think I could have done with one after my mum died but didn't even think of such a thing. Love all your Christmas projects to, especially the little mice - so cute :) Thanks for your earlier visit. We are fine - thanks for asking. Hope you and yours are well too and having a good week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #45
