WOYWW...

Did you miss me last week?.....hehehe  I doubt it but if you were wondering where I was then I will tell you....we took the day off and went to Tywyn for the day.....Milly's first trip to a beach  :-)

Well, as you can see I'm back now and I'm another year older so on my desk are some of my many birthday pressies....


I was well and truly spoilt and as you can see I have friends and family that know how to make me smile.....of course it's all at the stroking stage as yet but one day I will find something special enough to make using some of it.  I just love new fabrics.

I have lots of projects on the go at the mo but most of them are for presents so I'm sorry but I can't share the pics as yet.  I have, of course made more Memory bears since the last time I joined in so thought I'd add a pic here too...



These are two little Christmas bears using babygros....aren't they cute?

I have rather a lot of orders for Memory bears pending now [think it's 13 at last count!] so guess I could get pretty busy between now and Christmas.....plus all the other things I plan to make that I have buzzing round in my head in the middle of the night.  :-)





That's all from me for today....short and sweet just the way Julia likes it.  Please leave me a little message to let me know you've called by and I will pop over to yours to see what you're up to this week.
Hugs,
Annie x

So the bears are made from babygrows - what a brilliant idea and they look really great. I just love seeing folks creations - inspirational. Have a lovely week x Jackie 21

Happy late Birthday...love the fabric and bears. My son gets home from Iraq today and during the time he has been gone my grand babies have been sleeping with a "stuffed doll" that has a picture of him printed on it. Really a cute idea for children missing loved ones either from deploy,ent or death. My daughter in law had them made up for the kids. For some reason I thought of you when she got them. I kept meaning to tell you but forgot! Thanks for sharing and stopping by my desk earlier. Have a great week Vickie #11

I like friends who know what to buy for Birthday pressies much better than ten ton of bath stuff Lol! Love the new bears too. Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x

Oh gosh, I missed your birthday. Cannot say I didn't know as i had read it somewhere. Just with all that is running in my head at the moment - but that is no excuse. I need a slap!
So pleased for you that the bears are taking off big style and keeping you busy, it really is a wonderful idea and one which I am sure will keep you occupied for quite some time. You need more publicity about them and then they can go global.
Take care my friend
Hugs & Thanks for coming to see me

Hi Annie,

The little bears are adorable! So cute.

Thank you for visiting me already. I'll be visiting people through the weekend, I'm afraid!

I bet Milly loved the beach, and if Monday was the same ther, you sure picked a good day for it, how lovely. a blSt of fresh air on a nice day to set you up for another busy week, huh. No surprise about the popularity of the bears, or indeed that you have new fabrics to play with! MNy happy returns girly.xxxx

Morti said...

Love the memory bears! I've been thinking about offering those for a while on my keepsake shop but I've not yet plucked up the courage to have a go. I think my niece is going to send a couple of babygros over that were her little boy's for me to play with...

Happy WOYWW for last week by the way - I'm late getting round.... as always.
