WOYWW....

Hi folks....It's a desk full of much the same again this week...



The little gingerbread houses have now been beaded up and a few buttons added so are now finished. 



The little 'Joy' hangings have been beaded so are also finished.



Then I was left with a pile of red fabric too small to use for another stocking or Christmas sack so I cut it up, appliqued a few with decorations......



......backed them with some lining fabric and attached them to some red bias binding and hey presto....


I made 3 lengths of Christmas bunting.  :-)
Nothing goes to waste here as you can see. :-)




I've also made another little Memory bear out of a little one's Primary school uniform to remember the happy times there before moving onto Secondary school.....he seems very popular too. :-)

I hope you've enjoyed your visit today.  If you'd like to leave me a little message then I will do my best to pay you a return visit.  I love seeing what you've all been busy with each week.
Hugs,
Annie x

Your little Christmas bits and bobs are lovely - think you need to pass on your ironing tip to Jan - she has been doing bunting too. x Jo

Blimey, we've got identical desks this week almost!! I love the little gingerbread houses, don't know if I've got the patience for them but I'm going to have a go at some hearts! Hope you're all ok and little Theo is doing well :-D

My words, you have been busy. Each turn of the wheel on my computer mouse revealed yet another photograph of christmas beauty. Lovely wander through your blog Annie. Thanks!
That was a great idea to use the left over bits for bunting.
I have just seen LLJ's desk and it was almost deja-vu - two busy stitchers and two talented ladies.
Lots of Love

Hi Annie, gorgeous stuff as always. Love them all. Funny, was talking on a thread on a US forum earlier, a lady said her kids call her a skinflint, she prefers the term 'thrifty'! Back in the day, thriftyness was applauded and throwing money at stuff all the time was frowned upon. Seems to be the opposite these days, and people wonder why we have a landfill problem! Have a great week, hugs, Shaz #8 xx

Annie you are always so creative and it is always such a happy time coming to visit your desk and seeing what you have created. Love the finish JOY and Gingerbread houses. Taking the scraps and making a banner was awesome use of the leftovers! Most our schools don't have uniforms but that bear idea is an awesome thing. My daughters scout troop dipped their hands in paint and patted a clean white T-shirt with the hand and signed them…My daughter still has it. It means a lot and I know who ever gets the bear will love it! Thanks for visiting my desk earlier and leaving such a nice comment! Have a great week. VIckie #25

Really lovely Christmas decorations. What a wonderful Memory Bear. I have the pattern and wish I still had my childrens uniforms to make one.
