WOYWW....

Hello all.  It's been an exciting week for me here at Sewing by Annie.  I know many of you will have seen me posting about my little Memory bears on my Sewing by Annie facebook page and this week they have gone viral locally....one of the big local schools has shared them on their school page and there has been lots of interest....so much so that I have now offered any local school willing to share my bears £1/school bear sold for one of their pupils to go for their school fund.....I'm buzzing here as you can imagine.

So on my desk this week are the little Easter projects I've been working on in case I get very busy with my bears.....and if I do I will be training up the grandchildren to help me keep up with demand.





My little bunnies in their carrot sleeping bags.  It looks like they are having a sleep over and as my daughter Amy commented....She thought they would be bed hopping in the night!  :-) :-)





My Easter chicks....each has a little pocket on the front that chocolates/money could be popped into.


The other thing I'm sharing today is some fabric I've bought this week.  They are fat quarters on offer at Aldis this week [what you maybe can't see is there is 2 fat quarters in each pile!].  They just jumped into my trolley at the weekend....as it does!
It was just too good value to leave it sitting there.






There you go.  It's short and sweet this week just how Julia likes it.  I hope you like my little makes this week and will leave me a little comment so I know you've called by.  I will do my best to call by at yours as soon as I can.  Hope you all are well and happy and have a really creative week ahead of you.
Hugs,
Annie x

Congratulations on your new outlet at the schools. Will be needing your autograph before long if you keep on at this rate. Annie's will become a brand name.
Also love the little chicks and they are a fabulous idea - shame I have no little ones to buy for. Chas?
Enjoy your Aldi fabric.
Hugs, Neet 12 xxx

Hi Annie, that really is great news about the bears. I can imagine they'll be flying off the sewing machine! Aldi sometimes has some fab bargains I agree, and that looks to good to pass up. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #5 XxXxX

You gotta watch out for those fat quarters - they have a life of their own! The bunnies and chicks are too cute for words! Thanks for sharing, Lindart #40

Hi Annie,

Oh, the little bunnies in their sleeping bags are adorable! And how fun about the memory bears! Good for you!

I had to laugh when you said you'd have to train the grands to help out. Sewing is the perfect skill for everyone to have. I bet they will love helping out - but will they want to keep what they make?!?

Happy WOYWW
Hugs, Kay (41)

Lots of hugs,

Hi Annie, well done. Your bears are lovely so not surprised people like them so much the only problem you might have is keeping up with the demand. Thanks for the visit to mine and happy woyww, Angela x 17

Congratulations on the Bear Buzz! And how very sweet of you to offer up the donation. I wish you were state-side. I'd be ordering up a couple of those bunnies in the carrot bags for my granddaughters. All of your critters are super cute! Creative Blessings! Kelly #46
