WOYWW....

Oh wow these week's seem to fly by when your're busy don't they?  I will quickly run through my week and what's been filling my desks...

It's been another busy week making special memories for some very special people....I'm so blessed to be trusted with special items of clothing to make the bears and to be taken into the hearts of each and every one of them when they share who the bears are being made in memory of.



Since last Wednesday I have been pretty rough with my head cold/cough returning...I seem to hear of so many having this happen to them....and now I would really like to be free of it all.

While I dosed myself up with paracetamol and rested/slept over the weekend I managed to make rabbit number 6 ....here he is sitting with his cousins on my desk while he waits for me to find time to make him some clothes.

You might notice that rabbit number 5 is now wearing trousers and a matching lined waistcoat but is still waiting for his shirt.



And finally you might like to see why I do what I do.  This was written by one of my latest customers that I made several Memory characters for.  She is only 18 years old but such a lovely young lady and this was part of a post she put on her Facebook page....it reduced me to tears.  Her Grandma must have been so very proud of her.

Thanks for popping by today.  I must say sorry to a couple who visited here last week that I didn't manage to pay a return visit to ....I will aim to do better this week.
Hugs,
Annie x

Every little bear is made with such love and care but it's the thoughtfulness and empathy that you have, that these lovely folks benefit from most, I think. Love you lots. xx Jo

No wonder you cried, how sweet and thoughtful of that young lady. I love that some of her bears are wearing scarves like the lady used to. Well done you Mrs Softie. Who knew and am so glad that your bears have taken off like this, specially as they each go away with a little bit of you in them too.

Must make it even more pleasurable when you read comments like that Annie, I say it time after time but you put some many smiles on peoples faces, keep at it lovely lady. It's my wish that one day I may be lucky enough to take a little of your time & have one of my very own memory bears.
Thanks for sharing all that's wonderful and uplifting on your work desk this Wednesday Hugs Tracey 10 xx

You are mind blowing - you have created so much in just one week and each one beautifully done. You deserve the accolade from the young woman and I hope it brings you many more sales. Gosh Annie you will be makaing bears (and rabbits) in your sleep at this rate.
Hugs, Neet xx 9

It’s lovely to receive a thank you when people appreciate the care and love you put into the memory animals. The weather here is definitely meant for staying indoors so I am sewing.

Oh, Annie, you couldn't ask for a better testament to your work and your customer's description of you is spot on too. Sorry you've been so poorly - hope you're well on the mend now. The rabbits seem to be doing what rabbits do - multiplying! And they are all so lovely - I think there's a few grandchildren that are going to be absolutely delighted with them. Take it easy and look after yourself. Hugs, Ellie x #25
