Three New Annies

What a week this has been.
we experienced an earthquake ~
something that is not common at all where I live~
a few days afterwards Hurricane Irene decided to visit the northeast ~
I am thankful I live far enough inland that all we had was rain and wind
with no damage (toppled trees) or flooded basement ~ thank you Lord!

Since I wasn't venturing out in the hurricane
I was able to finish three Annies ~
even get their pictures done.

I am enjoying making extras to go with my Annies ~

Snowman on a Stick has a tiny hand painted cardinal
Saltbox Welcome comes with her own saltbox ~
hand painted and stained
Annie & Scarecrow
I had wanted to make a scarecrow
so this little Annie has her own
scarecrow on a rusty bed spring ~
he has a crow nesting in his hat and a prim sunflower on his hat band
Hope you all survived this week
especially if you live here in the northeast.
Wishing all a not too exciting week ahead!
God bless.
Thanks for visiting.

Gathering Room Annie and Mouse

Welcome everyone to a new week ~
I had a relaxing creative weekend spent in my "factory" sewing new Annies.

Gathering Room comes with Annie and her
little mouse (Soft in the Head pattern) with a tiny basket filled with fabric and yarn

Keep it Simple Annie has
an acorn pin keep on a rusty bed spring ~
the wool acorn was made from a Sassafras Hill Primitives pattern
In the next few weeks I hope to work on some Christmas Annies ~
that is if time and my weary bones permit ~
in the real world ~ where I have to go to work each day ~ :/
it is the start of a new academic semester
and an extremely busy time ~
but I am very thankful to have my job ~
I know there are many unemployed
people (including family)~
praying for you all

Hope you enjoyed visiting
wishing all a wonderful week
Be Thankful and God bless.

Annie's Matryoshka Dolls

Musikfest is over for another year ~
unfortunately it rained 6 out of the 10 days ~
I still had a great time with friends enjoying music.
Now my life could get back to normal ~work then home to sew Annies :)

I love to hand stitch accessories for Annie.
I found this wonderful pattern for nesting dolls
and just had to make them.
Autumn Blessings Annie has two small sunflowers
made from an old cutter quilt and coffee stained.
Working on two new Annies for next week.
Have a blessed week everyone.
God bless and thanks for visiting.

Autumn Annies

Two new autumn Annies are finished and ready for Ebay next week.

This is an exhausting week for me. I am at work all day
and then sell merchandise at night at Musikfest.
Sure is fun to see all the people and listen to the wonderful music,
but exhausting at the same time!

This little one has a new style dress and comes with a teddy bear.

A is for Apple ~ Annie's dress is from a beautiful apple border fabric.

Well that's it for this week.
Wishing all a joyful week.
God bless.
Thanks for visiting.

Musikfest, a 10 day free music festival in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania,
is starting on August 5.
Well, some concerts you do need to buy tickets for but most of the music is free!
My friends and I work the fest selling
glow necklaces, etc. to children in the evenings.
We call ourselves "The Glow Queens"
and have a wonderful time enjoying music,
our friendship and the thousands of people who come to the fest each year.
Anyone who loves music come on down to Bethlehem
for some free music and ethnic food.

So I've been busy sewing to have Annies ready for Ebay.
Lovin from the Oven comes with her own rolling pin
and Apple Brown Betty recipe!
She has new wool hair. Paternayan rug yarn is no longer dying wool
and is very hard to buy right now.
I do have a supply but started searching for another source
for when it is all gone.
This little Annie's hair is Halcyon rug yarn,
it is a little thinner and not as soft but I do think I like it.
Heart Pocket comes with her little kitty dressed to match.
She likes to keep her hand in her "heart" pocket.
Until next week.
God bless!
