WOYWW.....

Hello all.  Another busy week here for me.





I've made a few more PE bags and pencil cases to replace the ones I've already sold plus I've managed to get tables on two up and coming school summer fayres so will be building up my stock ready.





I've appliqued names on a PE bag and a pencil case for two lucky little girls.



I've sewn 11 swimming badges onto Phoebe, Lulu and Steve's swimming bags....proud Nanny Annie moments.

Plus I've been playing with my new pom pom makers....I've wanted some of these for a while and have eventually treated myself to two sets so I can now make 4 different sized pom poms.  I have to say I'm really impressed with my new toys and if you've ever made pom poms with two pieces of card you need to try these.



There you go....nice and quick just the way Julia likes it.  I must apologise for not getting round everyone who visited me last week.  I had several customers needing sewing doing quickly so my week just disappeared.  I will aim to do better this week....but of course I never know what will come through my door needing my attention.
Hope you all have a great week.
Hugs,
Annie x

loving the pom poms... if you look at the word pom pom early in the morning without your glasses on it looks like porn porn... puts a whole other light on it! Have a great day. Helen #1

What fab pom pom figures - I would never have thought of a Minion - clever you!
Great sewing and no doubt about it, you have ever reason to be proud of those swimming badges.

Did you get the Clover Pom Pom makers? I have them and they're fabulous, so quick and easy!! The minion one is great, trust you to think of something so different, lol! Every time I see a Minion, I think of Janet Fairythoughts..bless her, it's been a couple of years now.
You PE bags are great, I'm sure they'll go like hot cakes, especially at a school sale.

Since I've not posted for a while I peeped about and Love the Christening photos. All the kids are growing up so fast. Then there is that sweet little dog I'd love to snatch up. You are working with fun colors also. Hoping our newly visiting SUNSHINE helps motivate me. Enjoy a fun week.

Ah those precious proud moments - they really are priceless, thank you for sharing, it reminds me of all the little achievements we celebrated with our boys that built up their self - confidence , and they are now confident fine young men... dxx z#29

Those swimming bags remind me of when I used to sew my DD's swimming badges on her towel - which she lost on a school trip (of course I warned her about taking it, but they have to learn their own lessons!) It was a loss for both of us. I can anticipate two very happy little girls getting those bags! Thanks for sharing, Lindart #32

Hi Annie, you have been busy! Love all your colourful makes this week. A lot of children are going to be very happy including your lovely grandchildren. I sewed all my daughter's badges together so that I could easily transfer them from one swimming costume to another as she very quickly outgrew them. Love the pompom makes. I have a couple of makers too - they make what could be a very tedious job much easier. Have a great week. Hugs, Ellie x #33

Love the minnion pom pom I made a number of cards last year but the pom poms are great.

Brings back memories of making drawstring bags for my children, but when my grandson went to school it had to be the official one, and at a cost. ANickoana

Love your fabulous bags and figures Annie. I met you when I was with my friend Neet when we were on a Playaway in Shropshire. I too love sewing, only mine tends to be more on the embroidery and fabric book front.
Your garden looks lovely and colourful.
