Working on orders

Well, I have to say, I have been so busy, haven't had much time to do anything but sew lately.  So many orders from the wholesale site, we are working night and day.  My shows are in big trouble this year.  I wish I could take a pill to take the place of sleep.  I am still going to do our Christmas in July. Can't believe only a month away. This year is flying by.  
Here are some of  things that I have been working on.
I have had so many orders for bears, I think I can make them in my sleep now. The Panda bear is the most popular so far. 
I have had many requests for my Apple pie Annie, I had customer that waited patiently for me to get this set done, along with the Olde Rooster for a couple of months.
I found a great pattern designer love her patterns, this is one from Cat nap primitives. So quick and easy to make. I love this little guy.

Another pattern by Cat Nap Primitives, quick and easy, I need items that make up fast and this one does. I put wire whiskers on mine.

Another pattern that makes up quick is by Crow's Roost prims
I had a request to turn my #419 Sadie doll which is originally black into a prim white doll. I used flax for the hair and really like using for hair. I had never seen it before and love working with it.
I got 7 of these girls made, I call them spoon Annies, they a have wooden spoon painted black and little recipe card attached to their dresses.

I took some of the mice I have been making and put them on a mouse trap with a little piece of cheese made from beeswax. I found a mold on ebay for the cheese

a few of the mice I have been working on.
Samantha has been getting a ton of orders lately too. We work together about 2 days a week now, trying to help each other get caught up. I am not able to take any orders for about 2 months due to the amount of orders I have received, Samantha is about the same.  This venture has turned out great for us. Next year, we may consider some of the wholesale shows in Pennsylvania and take some of our members products with us. Well, time to cook dinner and get ready for hubby to come home. sorry for not posting like I should, I keep thinking I will get to post, but stay so busy right now. Hard to get anything else done.  But on the good side, my leg has finally almost stopped hurting, go back to the doctor in June, then chemo treatments again in October.  So I am trying to take advantage of the doctor free days and stay busy.  Hope you all have a great week.

Next one I will have to try the little doll. I will post on my blog soon. OH, they are so neat to make. Pretty fast..don't know why I waited so long. Also...this is the first doll I ever made. :)
