WOYWW....

Happy 9th Anniversary to you all.  What a wonderful thing this is that Julia started all those years ago.  I know she doesn't like thanks but I'm sure we all would thank her for her efforts keeping us linked up each week [and Jan too for when she needs to step in and help out].  

My desk today has a pile of spare fabric I begged from my big sister so I can make a few more charity bags for Margaret in my spare time....yes I do get a bit now and then.


These 5 pieces will do the job nicely and I have plenty of pieces I can use to line them with to make the bags all different.



My other shares are this little Memory dog which was the 100th Memory bear/dog/rabbit I've made since I designed the pattern on 3rd August 2016 so that's in less than 2 years.....quite and achievement wouldn't you say?

If you'd all like to pop over to my Facebook page you will see he is also there to celebrate the numbers of my followers now reaching over 700 and why not get your name in the Gift Draw over there.....it would be so lovely if one of you won.


The other special thing I've made this week is this little Shrewsbury Town rabbit.  He's made from old Shrewsbury Town shirts and is to celebrate our local team heading off to Wembley on Sunday for the playoffs.  I hope he brings them luck and they win the game....our men will be there to cheer them on and Jo and I will be having a bit of quality time together but of course will be watching the game on the telly.

That's all from me for this week.  We have posted our swap ATCs and my PIF ATC will be going in the post later today so there will be lots of happy mail flying around the world in the next week or so.....what a lovely way to celebrate special friendships.
Hugs,
Annie x

How lovely that you're No 1 on the list on this special day today! Well deserved as you've been a staunch and loyal supporter of WOYWW for such a long time now! And I know we were swapping ATCs anyway, but it's even nicer that I'm your official PIFer, so to speak, lol!!!
Hugs and love, LLJ 2 xxxx

Well, forgetting the Linky has really stirred up the order, so perhaps its a good thing! Congrats on 100 bears, I’m not surprised in the least. Really like the spotty fabric you blagged of Twiggers!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Congrats on being #1 today, dear. Sounds like you have definitely reached a milestone.

Happy 9th Anniversary at WOYWW from an unlucky # 13, since my PIF partner is the only person I can't contact!

Hi Annie,yes, we definitely plan on coming to the crop, the hotel is already booked, lol. Staying Friday night & Saturday night and driving home on Sunday. I wonder if there is anywhere we could all go for a meal, maybe on Saturday night, I'll have to ask Margaret. Love all the bears every week, that is an amazing number in such a short time. Have a lovely week, Love & Hugs, Shaz #6 XxX

Happy Belated 9th Birthday WOYWW. The sunshine was so wonderful yesterday, that once I got home from town (the nurse's appointment went smoothly and I then I went shopping - treated myself to shoes!) I just sat outside and read a book on my Kindle. Watched the cycling on the telly when I got back from my Spanish class, so did not not sort out blog comments etc until now - early in the morning and I am up due to an allergic reaction to something waking me up. Congrats on the No.1 spot, and the 100th bear/rabbit/dog. Ali x #19

Marit said...
