New Annie and some goodies in the mail....

We had a dreary wet cold day here in North Florida, in the 50's and rainy.  We desperately need the rain, so I am not complaining. I worked on some orders and finished up a new doll.  I now have a new favorite, this little Annie with her pet monkey. I found this yarn at Michaels a few months ago and used it for the first time, it is nice and thick, I made the monkey out of felt. I saw the fabric at Joann that I used for the apron and really liked it, so I used a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern and changed it up a little. I am looking for a sewn monkey pattern that I could use in place of the felt one, if anyone knows of one, please let me know.

 I received a package from a new blogging friend, Cynthia.  She has a blog and is looking for some new followers, she is also having a giveaway for one of her wreaths.  I got an Easter table runner, jewelry rabbit, doll clothes, miniature teapot for the wall, paper covered photo album and a primitive and antique signs. Thank you, Cynthia, I love it all.
 I also won a give-away from Vicky, I just love this, already have a place picked out for it.  Thank you, Vicky. Your work is awesome.
 Made up a little Easter Annie with her prim Easter egg.
 I also bought these from NinnasAttic on Etsy,  I used to do a lot of felt work and saw these, I thought they were so cute.

Not much else going on, getting ready for the Walking Dead tonight, so gotta get my couch ready.  Hope you all have a great week!  Cyndy

    Wonderful goodies that you received, have fun playing with all of it!

  16. I went to your Etsy and didn't see the Easter Annie, did someone already buy it? I fell in love with the little Annie with the stitched apron and would have bought it instead anyway. That apron caught my eye immediately and it is so adorable on that sweet little Annie! Can't wait to add her with the rest of my Annie's!! =] I guess this gives me time to dust around them so I can show her off in a blog post soon, hehe.

    Thanks Cyndy!!

  17. Thanks again for your kind words!! i love all of my stuff in the swap but I am going to show before and after pictures on my blog of some of the things I made from your goodies. I sold a wreath to a woman in MALTA of all places, goes to show how small a world this Etsy stuff makes it. When I make some more profit I am ordering your monkey and kitty dolls for my collection, I love the felt ones too!!! LOl Cynthia


We love hearing from you!
