Hello all.  The days are creeping ever closer to our 9th anniversary swap of ATCs [just two weeks to go now] and as ever that much older sister of mine and myself will be sending our ATCs out together so if your wanting to swap with us feel free to send ours to either me or to Jo...save on the postage cos we are more then happy to get together over a coffee and share them out....it's a good excuse [not that we need one of course].

My list so far is...
  1. Julia [the boss]
  2. Jan [second in command]
  3. Jo [big sister]
  4. Neet Hickson
  5. Shaz Brooks
  6. Sarah Brennan
  7. Angela Radford
  8. Cindy Ashplant
  9. Sylvia Hildman
  10. Christine Brown
  11. Elizabeth Worthington
  12. Nikki Carpenter  
  13. Margaret Wright
  14. Helen Lindfield
If, in all that's been going on here, I've forgotten to add you to my list and you'd like to swap with us then please email me with your postage details....to wipso2310@gmail.com

Onto my desk for today....

I've had lots of trousers to shorten this week amongst other jobs and in between all that I have been making another quilt ordered for a special little girl called Chloe [fabrics and colours chosen by my customer].....her mummy said she really loves it and little Chloe will treasure it for ever so I'm really chuffed.

On top of that I have had orders for more Memory bears so looks like I'm going to be kept out of mischief for another week or so.

Please leave me a little message so I know you've called by and I will do my best to pop over to yours to see what you've been up to this week.

What a sweet quilt, a lovely cosy cover to treasure for years to come. I'm not surprised about your memory bears, you know I am in awe of them all.
Have you been shortening trousers because of the warm weather we have been having :))
Thank you for sharing WOYWW wishing you a wonderful sunny week ahead.

That baby quilt you made for Chloe is adorable. And yes, it does sound like you will be busy for a few days this week (maybe even longer).

Happy WOYWW from #3.

Sarah Brennan said...

Hi Annie, I saw the quilt on FB; it looks amazing and I'm not surprised that it went down so well. Glad you have had some new orders for memory bears too. Have a great week. Sarah #20

Julia Dunnit said...

Aw, super lovely quilt, lucky Chloe! Don’t forget you need one ATC for the actual PIF recipient too, if it happens not to be one of us on your list, that is! That said, I need to get on and finish mine. Lawks.

Lovely quilt - what a lucky little girl is going to be sleeping underneath that. You are so good with that sewing machine - and more Memory Bears in the making!
Looking forward to the atc swap - wonder what you and Jo have up your sleeves this year.
