The Factory

I recently had a request to see my sewing room, "the factory." I just cleaned and reorganized it. This was my daughter's room for over twenty years. Figured I better take some pics before it gets messed up again. Actually, it kinda looks messy already. LOL

Look for my puppy, Rosie, sleeping in her bed under my sewing table. She lays there and snores while I sew. She is such a good girl. Rosie is a yorkie and 6 years old, not really a puppy. She weighs all of 7 pounds. I love her dearly.

New Annies

Here are two new Annies going up on Ebay this week. For Noah Ark's Annie I crocheted her dove in the amigurumi style. Amigurmi is the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals. For Pink Teddy Annie, I sewed her teddy bear using an old sweater.

During the holidays I reorganized my sewing room. My family calls it the "factory". I added more shelves so all my fabric is organized by color and/or themes. Now I am looking forward to creating new Annies in 2010. :)

My grandson, Dominic, celebrated his first Christmas. I think he is adorable. Here he is surrounded by all his presents.

Poor little guy was sleeping and had no idea what was going on, but he didn't cry.

"Welcome Friends"
my latest Annie on E-Bay.

Merry Christmas Annie
Holly Bear


Most of all I wish everyone a very happy and filling Thanksgiving.

Until mid December I will not be listing any Annies on E-Bay. I am extremely grateful to be on vacation in sunny Florida enjoying time spent with my sisters and cousin playing pinochle and checking out alligators.

My plans when I return are to work on new patterns for my 15 inch Annie and possibly my Threesome. Hopefully they will be on E-bay in January along with some new Annies.

I want to thank all my buyers, family and friends for their support this past year. Looking forward to another year creating Annies.

Thank you and God bless.
