This week's smiles...week 488

 The weeks seem to be flying past and Christmas will be here before we know it.  I have had a quieter week here at Sewing by Annie's and it's given me time to get on top of making my Christmas almost finished and that really makes me smile....cos I never know what's round the next corner workwise.

We've enjoyed lots of quality time with the grandchildren with having the twins before and after school on a Tuesday and Wednesday and Gina sent me this photo and that really makes me smile...

Louie is playing with a fabric book I made for Theo [and I'd actually forgotten I'd made it].  It's so lovely when the things I make and treasured and enjoyed.

I've even had time to get my paints out and I always love a bit of creative time....not had so much of that lately lol.

I really love these paint brush pens because each one is really loaded and they all blend together really well.....just need to get started now.

Of course it wouldnt be a Friday without a few funnies....these really made me chuckle and I hope they make you smile too.
I hope you've all had a good week and have smiles to share by linking them at the bottom of the page.

Christmas cards? What are those? I haven't given them a thought. I suppose they should be posted by now, but of course I'm not doing cards this year. Perhaps next year, as I do enjoy making them. I might join a group that makes card throughout the year.
I remember you making that book for Theo. How nice. Your cloth books are so lovely.
I like your collection of brush pens. Wow, every shade under the sun! And on Pinterest I see the results. Are those examples or are they what you made?
The funnies got me chuckling as usual. The 're-tired' one applies to me. Although I must admit we both had a good night last night.
Have a lovely weekend,

Hi Annie, I shoukd think that everything you make is treasured and enjoyed and that includes all those new zips too Hee! Hee! Nice to see Louie enjoying the book. The pens look interesting but I don't recognise the make. Hope we get to see the results. Loving the funnies. The one about the dogs and their balls doesn't work with terriers so much as generally once they catch anything unless it moves again they think it's dead and not worth bothering with Lol! Must trot off, dog walking next. Have a good weekend, hugs Angela xXx

I understand what you mean. My Dad once gave me a book and read from it to me, too.
And one day - I had forgotten of that book - I found my Brother reading it to his daughters.

Cool gear for drawing!

Oh, boy. Mean with the legs, LOL!
Poor flower..

To smiles :-)

Stopped bu to keep in touch while I am hosting AJJ. Louie is growing SO fast. I can't believe it.

Loved the funnies. They are so clever. Have a super Friday and a great new week, too. BTW, those pens are amazing.
