 Here we are back at our Wednesday sharing of desks from all around the world and looking at what I have to share this week says I must be feeling more like myself now....there's lots to share so I will quickly do it in photos for you.

I've finished the baby blanket I was crocheting.  I found a neat edging stitch that was new to me [and I love to try out new stitches] and I really love it.

The little lap blanket and cardigan I knitted left part of a ball of yarn so I....

....knitted a little hat with a top knot to match.

The 6 Advent calendars that I started before Christmas have sat idly draped over one of my machines since Christmas because I was just too poorly to feel like wadding, backing and finishing them off....but Monday I set to and have now finished them all off ready for selling next Christmas.

The one on the right at the front with trains on is for the next little Grandson :-)

This is what is actually on my desk's a pile of Tshirts that were favourites of a much loved Grandad.  I have to make 3 Memory bears for his Grandchildren, today using these so I have to work out how to fit some of the dragons, eagles and wolves on the panels that make up the bears....quite a challenge for me.

As you can tell it's been a much busier week for me [a bit more like normal for me] so I'm glad to be feeling rather better....apart from my deep sexy voice from time to time.

Lovely projects all over - will keep you busy for a while! The advent calendars look so enchanting! It will be Christmas again before we know it! Those are some cool T-shirts to work with. I can see how it's challenging, but I'm sure you'll find a solution - maybe make the bears bigger? Take care, Annie! xx zsuzsa #17

So glad to hear you are feeling more like your usual self, and you are certainly getting a lot done - the baby blanket is gorgeous, I love those colours and all the fancy stitches, the edging is very pretty and quite unusual. Well done on finishing the advent calendars, they are looking fabulous. It looks like a challenge, but I'm sure you will work your magic on the Tshirts and create some wonderful bears.
Hope you have a great week

Wow-the blanket is so lovely and how clever are all those stitches and the edging! The memory bears from the teeshirts will certainly exercise your brain this week. Glad you are feeling better and happy sewing.

Glad your feeling more like your normal self, Annie! And you've been so busy too. Good luck with those t-shirts, you have quite a teaser in the cutting out. Love the advents. The train fabric is super cute. Hope you have a good week. Hugs, Ellie x #28

Hi Annie, another late one for me but really wanted to get round. hose advent calendars are gorgeous but do take it easy. Sending hugs, Angela x16x

Lisca said...

I'm so glad you are feeling better, and you've managed to finish some projects. Well done on all that baby knitting!
I'm looking at those dragons, wolves and bears and I can see the challenge. Let us know how you solved that conundrum.
On Friday I will be traveling(flying and won't be able to link with your blog. Perhaps you can do it for me? I don't know how that works. (My blog will be published but I'm not sure if I can link it as my flight is at 9 am when you wake up at 8...)
CU Friday,

This is a welcome post Annie, signalling your return to form, am so glad that your health and fatigue have turned a corner and you feel up to being so busy! I love the hat with the top knot, such a great design and so cute. The blanks for the new baby is gorgeous, I agree about the borer, the stitches look so lovely. Now, I don’t wanna nag, but I don’t want to read next week that you’re exhausted from over doing it all, please take care!
