More Annies and new pattern in the works

I have been busy making some more Little Annies, I didn't get these made last year.  But have sold quite a few of them over the years. This pattern in an older one from Ragg Bagg Baby's. I love her patterns. The original pattern calls for a strawberry pincushion in her arms, but I love teddy bears, so I just put a little purchased bear in her arms. The ones dressed in blue in the back, I still have to stain a little and add the teddy bear and stripes on their legs.  Hope to get those finished up tonight and on to something else tomorrow.
It has been one of those weeks, I have had an upset stomach, headache, dizziness and finally starting to feel better.  Don't know if it is a bug or what.  My daughter had an upset stomach this week also, so hoping it will soon be gone. I feel like I have gotten nothing done this week.

my husband spent the afternoon, finishing up some molding on my daughters house.  She cooked dinner for us, with her boyfriend.  He seems like a nice guy.  He recently bought him a little miniature doberman pincher and when Samantha's 60 pound dog ( Hurley) and that little dog ( Harley) are together, it is funny to watch. I don't know whose idea it was to name the new dog Harley.  But both come running when you call one. My cats are bigger than the puppy.  But she was all dressed up in his little shirt and sequined collar.   It was nice and relaxing, she had one of the peach tarts I made for her burning and the house smelled really nice.

Next, I am working on a new Christmas pattern, this one should be available in a couple of days. This one is a little Annie w/tree and bag of grungy candy canes.  I really like her. It is time to get all my new fall and Christmas patterns ready for the magazine.  The next Country Sampler coming out will have 2 Annies from the You are Special line and then the fall deadline is the end of this month. So time to get busy. So let me know what you think of my new pattern and take care.
