Wahoooo we are nearly at our 4th year celebrations.  This week I have been filling envelopes and putting them ready for posting next week.  

As you can see there are two clear is for this country and the other one is for my overseas friends.  It has amazed me just how many of my Wednesday blogging friends are over the water somewhere around the world a moment [of madness!] when I had nothing to do [....when would that? be I hear you shout!!  :-)  ]...I have printed off 2 maps and put a little sticky flower on all the places I am sending my ATCs to so far.

What fun  I had doing that.  If you can't see a little flower hovering over where you live and would like to swap with me then please email me your details....I still have a few left for those wanting to join in and get yourself on my map.  :-)

The only other pic in my workroom for this week is this one...

It's a huge double bed sized quilt that has a little hole in the one end that needs patching....the jobs I get to do eh?  No two days are the same here.  :-)

So that's it from me for this week.  I have 3 twinny munchkin fun days this week so visiting my friends on line might have to fit in and around but I will do my best to call by to say hello and don't forget to let me have your details if you haven't already and you want to swap ATCs for next week's celebrations.

Actually, I love the map idea! As a geography graduate, I'm max about maps and am forever looking up where WOYWWers come's so interesting! My knowledge of the US has improved big time!
And well done for the 12 lb loss :-)
Hugs, LLJ 40 xx

I love that quilt, whoever it belongs to.
I'm sorry Annie I'm not doing any ATC swaps as I've got to many things on the go as it is. Email me your address and I will send you a surprise.

Anne said...

Hi Annie and thanks for visiting me already. I would love to swap with you. I do hope that you will soon get a buyer for your house. I used to find it so draining keeping tidy etc for possible viewings. Hope the new estate agent gets things moving. Love the map idea. Have fun with the munchkins :-) Anne x #74

Julie Lee said...

Wow! That map looks like something out of one of those serious British WW2 movies, well apart from the little flowers!!! It's so kind of you to swap ATCs with me considering all the many, many places you're sending them. I do so appreciate it. How organised you are with envelopes. Have a great day xxx #58

Redanne said...

Hi Annie, well you have been busy but they do say if you want to get something done then ask a busy person! I love the gorgeous picture at the top of your blog and yes, they are gorgeous! I will email you as I would love to do a swap. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #53

Julia Dunnit said...

You are a dedicated visitor, no-one will mind at all if you have time off for the munchkins! Love the patch needed for that quilt, what an heirloom story that will be.. I wonder if it's a toe related incident!! Love the maps word, makes you realise what a small place the world is on the www.

Karen said...

Wow thats a mahoosive pile of envelopes ready to brighten up someones day in the world! Love the quilt, looks a well loved one! Happy WOYWW! Karen 85 x

Neet said...

What a fabulous idea that map is. I can see a red flower near to me - hope it is me.
I guess you are so organised because of what is going on in life - good luck with the visit today, hope it brings lots of other visitors.
You have just reminded me, I need to repair a duvet cover self. Thanks!
Take care - Hugs, Neet xx 2

KatzElbows said...

I don't know, you didn't make little flags to stick in these? I think that shod an awful lack of dedication! Enjoy your Trio of twin days and thank y for squeezing in a visit to me.

Happy WOYWW,

Ann B said...

Love the map idea, reminds me I must get on and make a couple of ATCs myself, not done any for ages.
Love the tulips on your header, I always like them full blown, so lush.
Thanks for visiting Annie, much appreciated, good to be back.

Hettie said...

I like the map with flowers idea, and I think I see one hovering over me?? Yippee!
Good luck with the EA.
Loving the look of that quilt!

ria gall said...

Hi Annie
I love the idea of using the maps to show where your ATC's are going. I am still busy making mine so not sure how many I will have for swapping
Sending hugs and hoping you have a great day

voodoo vixen said...

Oh but you are so organised, you put us normal folk to shame! LOL
That quilt looks lovely, it appears to be well loved and worn, the very bestest type of quilt!!
I have an ATC earmarked for you... need your addy but will pester you on FB so you don't forget!

RosC said...

Hi Annie,

Thanks for dropping by. Hope the house openings are going well and you're not too put about by the whole jolly process.

I'm stunned at how many folks you're sending ATCs to - I still regard myself as a new chum with this but would love to swap with you. I'm onto the email.

Enjoy the twinnies, who are so cute.

sandra de said...

I am starting to think you never rest and now I can see the box of envelopes and I know you never rest. Gorgeous tulips in your header. Have a lovely time with your little munchkins.

famfa said...

Great idea printing the map. I wish I was taking part but I'm not this time. You are very organised with all your envelopes, must be costing you a fortune. Hope e house viewing goes well. Enjoy the munchkins

Hi Annie,

What an interesting visualization of where your ATCs are going! I really enjoyed seeing that.

The quilt you are mending is beautiful, by the way.

Hmmm, I may have had your address at one time but can't put my hands on it -- can you please email it to me? My email is under my profile.

Thanks for visiting me already!!

Good Luck with the mending job! Chris 88

Angie said...

Thanks for dropping by ....yes I did have some ...but the sugar was minimal in the pears and I made the custard (birds) with half the sugar and some coco.
I so wish I knew whether I would be joining in next week as I want to swap with you and a couple of others ...and I have an idea ...but with Vicki not well and me looking after the GK's more I just cant promise to exchange.Love the maps ...and there is a space over Fife too.I would love to track all the WOYWWers and just see how far flung we all are. xx

fairy thoughts said...

janet #18

Angie said...

Thankyou for your offer ...that is so kind ...I will get in touch. xx and an extra xx

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

I love the little flowers on your map and the beautiful ones in your new header. Wouldn't have guessed they were tulips! Enjoy your twinnie days this week xx

Kezzy said...

Hi Annie, I am so sorry I didn't visit last week, I'm afraid the accounts are sucking the life and time out of me but they are nearly done and shall be on there merry way next week at last!!!. I am yellow flower :-), I am not as prepared as you though, I have them out and ideas and tests are almost done so I shall take a day off at the weekend to finish them off. I won't be sending as many as you I'm afraid. Obviously over the last year commenting and keeping in touch was difficult, then as this year has got better I have getting back to visiting then the accounts came so I just haven't got as much interest. But this is my own fault I should have been more prepared. Anyway all that matters is that I am swapping with some very close friends who I really respect and your right at the top of my list. Thank you for always being there, I feel like (apart from the back) that I am alot happier, my son at last is starting to grow up and I have started to love craft and other things I stopped doing. All is good (better next week lol). Lots of hugs and kisses, happy woyww :-) Kezzy xxx

Your ATC map looks fantastic. I have learned a lot about the UK since I've started playing in WOYWW. It amazes me how many desks we visit that aren't from our home country. You have put it in perspective. Or should I say you have put it on the map!

Happy WOYWW from #10.

BTW, I love that new blog banner.

Sue from Oregon said...

Got a big kick out of your ATC map girl! How fun! Happy WOYWW! ♥ Sue Kment

Nan G said...

Ah I'm kinda in the same boat Bridget...have yet to start my ATCs!! And I've been talking about it for weeks! Cool idea with the maps. I should do some, as most of my swaps are going across the pond and then some. Happy WOYWW! Nan G #105

SueH said...

Love the map idea Annie, it really brings home just how global WOYWW really is, and I’m not in the least surprised that so many want to get their hands on one of your little master pieces, including me.
Good luck doing the quilt, I bet it’s a challenge working with something so big, a bit like stitching on curtains I guess.
Have a great week. (what’s left of it)
Happy Crafting!

RosC said...

Hi Annie,
I reckon some peeps are very lucky to have you dealing with little holes in their quilts. I'd love to join the swap with you next week so I'll be onto the email.

SandeeNC said...

I love the little maps you made! OK, now it's confession time for me, because here I am on Friday making my way around the WOYWW board, hoping against hope to solicit some votes for a contest I am in. Horrible, aren't I? Just shameless, but here I am all the same! So if you feel the urge to go vote for me, I sure would appreciate from the bottom of my pitiful heart! lol waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

Elizabeth said...

Hi Annie, I'm hopelessly late this week - life has somehow got in the way. The maps are a terrific idea - love maps. No flower on Scotland, I think we will have to do something about that so I'd love to do an ATC for you :) Have a great weekend. Elizabeth x #81

Andrea said...
