Holiday Annies

I finished two new holiday Annies this weekend

I have a few more holiday Annies planned

Christmas Annie and Pillows

Christmas Annie comes with two small pillows
they are reversible with designs on both sides
 I love this fabric ~ it came with a panel so I made some pillows for Annie
one pillow has
"It's Christmas time, it's time to bow our heads,
say a prayer and celebrate the birth of Jesus" 
the other side has a little prim lamb
the second pillow says
"It's Christmas time, it's time for angels to watch over us
 and share some Christmas wishes"
the other side has prim candles
my prayer is to never forget the reason for the season, our Savior's birth!
Thank you for visiting
Wishing all a wonderful week ahead
God bless!

my favorite time of year ~ celebrating Christ's birth ~ 
the only reason for the season

one has a bunny made using a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern
the other is a TY bear I changed and 
dressed with a crocheted collar and bow

A Star for Annie

I saw a similar prim star and 
just had to make an Annie with her own star
little Annie has no body though
just her head sewed to her star :/
this Annie has been hanging bald 
on my "factory" wall for awhile  
 finally decided to give her and little Annie hair 
their dresses have a toile print of little girls playing 
there is even a doll carriage 
so naturally little Annie had to be in one too
all little girls cherish their dolls
so of course she had to be "Cherish"

Cherish is up on Ebay until Sunday evening
thank you all for visiting
hope you are enjoying the beautiful autumn weather
God bless.

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Wishing everyone a safe, happy holiday weekend 
I have finally opened a shop on Etsy ~
been asked by customers to set a price
so Etsy seemed right at this time
always loved the auction part of Ebay
never knowing what your Annie would sell for but....
times change
I will still try to have an Annie listed on both
"try" is the right word because
today I start watching my two beautiful grandchildren
every other weekend while there mama is at work
exhaustion yet joy here I come!
one of my Annies finished this week is a custom order
she is similar to a previous Annie only a few inches longer
hope she likes her?!

Count Your Blessings
her apron was made from an old linen napkin
hand stitched "Count Your Blessings" and a basket 
added a tuck with cluny lace trim on her dress 
thinking of putting her up on Ebay this weekend :/

Thanks for visiting
hope to be back next week

God bless!
