Here we are at another WOYWW and there aren't many left now before the big day so it's a hustle and bustle of activities here at Sewing by Annie's. I've had lots of pending orders and several have said they are coming but that's the last I hear from them. I have messaged them, they read their messages and then never reply....is it just me or have proper manners simply gone out of the window? I was taught, as a child that if someone spoke to me it was rude to ignore them but it seems that it doesn't apply to the Internet....or am I just becoming a grumpy old woman?
Enough of my grumping....sorry but I do feel a little better now I've shared it and at the end of the day you are my friends you know :-)
So here's a few quick shares for today....
The little stockings you saw all cut out have now been mounted onto what I hope is my last batch of cards for this year. I rather like this simple design.
Here's the latest pair of Memory bears for the few who don't follow me on Facebook [for those that don't...it's worth popping over there and getting your name in my Christmas Draw ...you might be lucky to win my Christmas bear].
Here's what I call a 'silk purse out of a sows ear' sort of job. My customer had [badly] cut out 3 of the 4 stockings and then decided she wanted them lining and a cuff making for the top in the white fleece fabric but that she had bitten off more than she could chew so brought them to me to make them for her
She had cut a square out of the fleece so there wasn't enough left to line them with so I had to line them with curtain lining and just use the fleece to make the cuffs with.
If I'd made them from scratch I would have tried to get the check a little more in line with them all but I couldn't change what was already cut ....I'm pleased to say she was thrilled with them and that's all that really matters isn't it?
That's all from me for today. I will do my best to pop over to see what you've been up to when I get a minute.
