WOYWW....

Hello all.  I'm sure you will have noticed I was missing from my desk last week and here's why.....


We went for a few days to South Wales to celebrate my darling hubby's birthday and to visit this lovely gal and her hubby in their new home.  They both made us feel very welcome and are such lovely people.  They took us to see the gorgeous beach they are often seen walking on and Jan and I enjoyed sitting on a huge tree that had come in with the tide while our men walked the length of the beach....as you can imagine we had a good catch up and lots of giggles.
Thanks both for making our little holiday so very special.



Of course when I came home I had been missed and have spent a few days catching up on my customers sewing.

My desk this morning is full of my items I've been busy making lately.  I've been spending time bagging items up and labelling them ready for a craft sale.....I will be having a table at Baschurch Village Hall on Sunday 2nd April 10 - 1pm....so if you're free why not pop along to say hello.

I'm just pondering now what I make next....any ideas as to what sells well folks?




That's all from me for today.  I didn't manage to visit anyone last week but promise I will do better today.
Hugs,
Annie x

I'm glad you had a lovely time with Jan it will have been a nice break for you all and I'm happy to hear
darling Milly had a good time too.
How about some little square lavender bags with crimped edges so they look like ravioli. They've always been appreciated when I've done them. Put 3 together in a little box or bag

Pleased you had a nice time.....now let me see! What about: cup warmers that fit round a mug as they are generally a similar shape and size though you could make them so they have an elastic opening and book marks I'm sure you've already thought of. There are so many things aren't there. Thanks for the visit to mine and happy woyww crafting, Angela x 17 x

How lovely that you went to see Jan, Annie. I saw the lovely photos on Jan's post earlier. It looks a beautiful part of the world and it's always so lovely to see old friends.
Good look with your craft sale.

Hi Annie. Sounds like a great time with Jan and G. Happy belated birthday to your hubby!! Have just looked up Baschurch and found the village hall, then went back to your blog post to check details.... and ... oh how disappointed I was - the fair is on a Sunday - and I know I won't be able to make it, otherwise I would have driven over... not that far to Shrewsbury for a nice day out.
Take care. God bless.

I thought I'd come to the wrong blog for a moment there Annie. Recognised LLJ immediately. I can well imagine that you had a great time catching up with her though sitting on a tree on the beach at this time of this year sounds like a very cold experience. I have a suggestion for you - Easter chicks. The yellow and orange fat quarters you can see on my post were bought for just these little makes. I found the instructions in an old Popular Patchwork magazine but I've found a link online so I'll pass it on through Facebook. Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Ellie x #34

donna garner said...

Wow you look so organised, an the colours laid out like that are such a lovely palette. Glad you had a super break...nothing better that a natter about sewing on the shoreline (a stitch and beach geddit?) Dx #32

Twiglet said...

So many lovely makes in those boxes Annie - I hope the sale is a big success!

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

So happy for you and your DH. Sure looks like a fun visit, and the photos were great. Something magical about being by water. We all need that much needed break. Have a great week catching up on the home front.

Lovely that you got to visit Jan. Hope hubby had a great birthday . Thanks for your earlier visit - have a great week . Soojay 7

Lindart said...

I have no ideas of what sells, except that I've been looking for those fabric microwave bowls - you put your bowl into it when you pop it in the microwave, and its like a hot mitt around the bowl so you don't burn your hands when removing it here's a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZgv3vwvlsY
I would buy a few more of those if only I could find them! (but I live in Canada and can't come to your sale :-( , but others may like this concept! I was floored when I first saw it, and my DD as well. Good luck with the sale! You and Jan look like you had a great time by the sea! Thanks for sharing, Lindart #43

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Annie, lovely to see all your items ready for the sale. I'm sure you will do well, they are all gorgeous. Looks like you had a fab time at Jans from all the pictures.Aren't they a lovely pair? Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #11 xxx

Stacy Sheldon said...

ooh it looks totally ready for your sale and that is so neat that you do live close enough to visit Jan. ( lucky you!) I have no idea on what to suggest for items because, really I just make cards or tags and such. ~Stacy #39

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Ha! I love that pic, especially G trying to duck out of shot :-D. IT was a really super day and I'm glad that you and your lovely man had such a fab lunch the following day. The view from that restaurant was amazing! Good luck with the craft fair...tissue holders or lavender pillows maybe?
Hugs, LLJ 4 xxx

Melissa said...

Anne said...

What a wonderful time you both had. I'm not joining in - again - life you know. Anne x

craftyani said...

Glad you enjoyed your short break. Now that's an apron I could do with. Hope you decide what to make for your craft fair. #2

Neet said...

I knew where you were but didn't know it was DH's birthday - belated greetings from me. Loved seeing photos of you and Jan both on her blog and of her on yours.
Hope you have managed to catch up with your sewing and good luck for the stall - sorry won't be able to call down as I will be in Holland. Even Chas won't have time as he is chauffeur for the airport for me and my friend.
Will be thinking of you anyway.
Hugs, Neet 14 xx
