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.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

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

Fun Vacation

Just returned from an amazing time with my family...rode through the Everglades and my cousin held an alligator! Now it's time to get back to work at the university and making some Annies at home. Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
