Happy Birthday America!

Happy 4th of July to all my American friends.
Praying for God's blessing on our nation today and every day.

Glad to have a long weekend and sew Annies!
This little songbird will be going on EBay today.
She has a hang tag that says "this song is for you" and comes with two little birds.
I fell in love with the fabric, it is a border fabric with a
black background and sage green butterflys....
I sketched a butterfly similar to one on her dress and then hand stitched it on a pillow.
Spider Witch is a OOAK Annie...
her felt spider is from a Rita Stuart Collection pattern.
I gave her long puffy sleeves and a black waist sash with a crystal button...
of course her witch shoes have curled toes, rusty pins and bells
...had to give her a broom too!
Hope you enjoy my new Annies.
Wishing all the very best and God's blessing to all.
Thanks for visiting.

  1. Ola Carolyn! Amei as novas annies, ficaram lindas.Lembra que me mandastes os moldes da annie?estou fazendo muitas delas e vou doa-las no natal, para o hospital que trabalhei onde tem crianças com leucemia, foi uma promeça que eu fiz quando perdi minha filha com leucemia em 2006.Estou tendo dificuldade com os olhos que pinto com tinta de tecido. Acho que eles ficam grandes de mais.Não consigo achar o defeito. Mas enfim estou contente com elas. Agradeço a você de coração por ter me concedido os moldes.Um abraço do fundo do coração e que Deus te abençõe.
