WOYWW.....

Another week....another Wednesday....and another catch up with the creative desks around the world.  It's my favourite day of the week.  Life here continues to throw me challenges and my customers keep a steady flow to my door.....and I'm loving it.

So here's what you've come here to see. My desk.....



Firstly I thought I'd show you that I managed to tame the dolly skirt.  I stitched a row of narrow elastic to the inside of the waist band and hey presto.....I've not tried it on the dolly yet but it's looking promising now.



I've made another cute little outfit.



I've also made three dolly dressing gowns.....when you have three little granddaughters you have to make enough to share.


I thought you might also like to see my latest little Memory Bear.  I've made him in memory of a special husband, dad and grandad who died on Christmas day.  It's always sad when you lose a much loved family member especially at Christmas but this one was someone I knew too so I'm really hoping the love I put into making him will give the family a lot of comfort.

That's all I have to share with you this week so if you'd like to leave me a little comment to let me know you've called by I will try to pop over to yours as soon as I can.
Hugs,
Annie x

Love the "tamed" skirt and the other outfits are fabulous but I must say the dressing gowns stole the show for me.
Typing this at silly o'clock whilst over here in America and I have a 7 hour journey tomorrow. Better try again to sleep.

Morning Annie. Well done on taming the skirt! Hope it fits well now you have done the taming! Great little costumes made, as well - you've been busy! He's a gorgeous bear - well done.
Take care. God bless.

That skirt cracks me up, Annie-it will be great fun for the girls. Your dressing gowns are amazing and you are so patient with the fiddly stuff. The bear as always will be such a joy to receive. Catriona

those dolly-gowns are so sweet! I wish I had a grandma like you when I was a little girl to dress up my dolls (my mum has a lot of talents - she's a writer of children's books - and she is the sweetest, but she couldn't/can't sew...)
The bear is heart-warming, I'm sure it will be very welcome and cherished! Love from stormy Holland, Marit #22
