Is Anybody Still Here?

Hello everyone in blog land!  Is anyone still out there?  You know, I've gotta say I really miss the ole days when blogging was THE thing.  There was no Facebook...there was no Twitter or Instagram.  Gosh, I miss those days.  You know why?  Because I LOVE to write!  And Facebook and Twitter are made for short and sweet posts.  It's been many, many months since I was on here.  Geez, look at my previous post...I was talking about BUNNIES!  :)  So, you know how long it's been.

I guess blogging has given way to the foodies.  I certainly love all the food blogs.  But what about the prim blogs?  I'd love to hear from anyone who is still interested in visiting these.  I have my Facebook page.  And I must admit, it DOES get a lot of traffic...far more than I probably got in my blogging heyday.  But it's just not the same.  So, with that said, how about a good ole BLOG POST!

These are my newest tucks...a new version of icicle snowmen.  I have these listed on eBay.  I'm also working on the pattern for these, which will also include the snowmen tucks below.  Those are listed on eBay, too.  It sure feels goods to be back sewing again!

I took a five month hiatus from sewing starting late last spring and accomplished something I've wanted to do for YEARS.  A. Major. Clean. And. Declutter!!  I started in one room of my house, went through every drawer, cabinet, shelf and closet and decided if I didn't want it, need it or love it, then it was going out!  Then I cleaned everything from top to bottom...and I mean EVERYTHING!  I started with the hardest room of the house, the kitchen, and ended with the second hardest room...my craft room!  It was a major undertaking, but it felt so good seeing all this stuff go out the door!  I think my house is probably a thousand pounds lighter!  My next major task is the garage!  Not looking forward to that one!

I also finished up a few of my old faithfuls!  These moose tucks are so fun.

I have this set of gingerbread men listed, some candy canes and my prim snowflakes.

It's been a while since I made these fun little penguins.  But I'm working on the pattern for these and couldn't find my notes on them.  So, that meant making another set.  They are listed on eBay.  Pattern should be coming in next day or so.

 And finally, this set of two Christmas trees and the stars below.
Up at the very top is my new Pilgrim Hat Table Sitter.  I've been wanting to do this for a couple of years now.  LOVE how it turned out.  I will be listing it on eBay once I finish up the rest of my Thanksgiving tucks.

I have LOTS of other Christmas prims coming!  Everything is stuffed, stained and painted...just need to put the finishing touches on everything.  Working on a few things each day to get them all finished.  So hopefully, it won't be another eight months before you see me again.  

Thank you SO much for stopping by today.  Since you did, that means there IS someone still out there!  ~~Annie

  4. I'm a bit late here, but I feel the same way! I miss our prim blogs! I'm thankful some still post, but I just "cleaned out" my followed blogs and ended up removing lots of them, which saddened me. Some were deleted blogs, some had gone private with a warning, but most hadn't posted in years. I have facebook, etc too, but I don't enjoy those sites anymore, especially lately. But on the other hand, I've not been the greatest blogger either!

    I love the things you make and happy to see some prim friends still around. :)

    1. Hi Jessica...SO glad you dropped by! I could have written your very words! Feel the same about facebook, and never could get into twitter. Who knows, maybe blogs will make a comeback one day. In the meantime, I'm going to try my best to keep plugging along at mine. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! ~~Annie
