Well, what a hive of industry it's been here at Sewing by Annie's this week. It's all or nothing when it comes to customers at the mo and having had no customers for weeks it was a bit of a shock to the system to have 3 Memory bears to make, two pair of jeans to shorten and a Nursing Sister's dress to shorten in just two days at the end of last week! So without more a do here's my desks today.....
On my computer desk are the three little Memory bears waiting to be collected....in fact since this photo was taken the little navy one at the back [made out of a Nursing Sister's uniform dress on her retirement] has now been posted to Yorkshire .....that's another area of the country I've reached with them now :-)
The one front left is a school bear made out of an old school uniform for a little girl moving to a new school and the one front right is made from tiny babygros to go in a little girl's memory box with her when she moves from her foster home to her new forever home.....such a lovely idea and it makes this one very special.
Of course with me being so busy the playmat is slow going [but there's no rush]. It now has a flower garden, a vegetable garden, a pond, a ploughed field with little bales of hay in one corner and I'm now working on a den for Peter Rabbit in the far right corner with a few bushes in front of it so he can hide from Mr McGregor. :-)
I'm really enjoying creating and am searching round my sewing room for ideas of what to do next. :-)
Not my desk but I thought you'd like to see what Phoebe and Lulu have been sewing with their mummy.....they have certainly caught the sewing bug. :-)
This is Phoebe's unicorn and....
....this is Lulu's sock monkey. They are both made from kits but arent they gorgeous? It really thrills me to see them sewing[....even if their mummy isn't a very keen sewer she can do it!....I know cos she had a good teacher :-) ].
That's all I have to share with you this week but before I go I just want to wish Lulu a very happy 9th birthday today. I hope you have just the best birthday ever...where have those 9 years gone?
