WOYWW...

 The week's are flying by and it will soon be our 12th Anniversary....12 wonderful years of fun and friendship and the time has simply flown by.  I've made about 20 ATCs to swap with anyone wanting and Jo and I will be posting ours together so you will get two for one to save on posting.  We would very much like it if you will do the same in return....it really doesn't matter which of us you post to as we never fight and promise to share nicely πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

On my desk today is....




A few more cards I've made with the latest watercolour painting I've done....I rather like these and each time I play I can see a little improvement now πŸ˜„




Since last week I've made this green Memory Monkey using a favourite dress.





This little Memory Elephant was made using a Grandma's fleecy tops and he's turned out rather cuddly.




This Memory Cushion cover was made using a much loved wife's favourite jumpers and the last scarf she wore with her favourite brooch pinned in the front.

I really enjoy the challenges I'm given to make exactly what my customers are wanting and seeing the joy on their faces when they come to collect them/




That's all from me for today.  If you're wanting to swap ATC's on the 19th please let either Jo or I know and make sure we have your details for posting please.

Hugs,

Annie x

Nice poppies Missus!! So glad you’re enjoying painting, I must admire that it’s been good for me too - the easy tutorials have really helped me . The monkey is very cheeky and the elephant looks very cuddly, good job. I’ll swap with you and Jo!

What a lovely way to combine fabrics and treasures to create a memory! I think you must have read my mind when typing your post - it's almost identical to mine re ATCs lol.xxx

How jolly are the elephant and monkey?! I love that each reminder is so personal and with the extra touches of hug-sleeves or specific animal or additions it is extra lovely. Stay safe and keep smiling, Lisa-Jane #4

Your poppies are lovely Annie, a lady of many talents! I look forward to our swap and will include Jo's as well. The memory monkey and elephant look really cute - new additions to your growing ark, it seems! The memory cushion is lovely too and so poignant with all the personal touches! Happy WOYWW! xx zsuzsa #22

Iam keeping postage to a minimum this year so will only be participating with my PIF on the anniversary this year Annie. I am kind of hoping that we might manage a September crop once restrictions are lifted and I can bring my swaps then. Love the latest memory items you have made. Stay safe and happy WOYWW. Sarah #1

Your poppy paintings are beautiful, Annie, and I love the latest additions to the "memory" family - a monkey and an elephant! They make a change from the bears and must be fun to make. Also the cushion. I lovely idea. I always think how much your projects must bless and comfort the recipients.

Happy belated WOYWW,
