Flat Annie

Annie is not so flat anymore, she got some much needed stuffing and is feeling much better. She was missing her eye's for a couple of days too...poor Annie, I looked high and low for my paints to make the little black and white dot, without any success. I was heading to Micheal's to pick up some paint but first I had to drop my daughter off at home. She showed me the cutest sign she painted for her "kitty X-ing" out in the back lane. Light bulb moment....I asked her for a little paint to finish Annie...duh. So Annie is now happy. The funny thing is I found my paints this morning, right under my nose....next to the computer.....duh again

Here is the magazine I found Annie waiting for me to bring her home. In case you can't see, it's Vol 8, No 9.

Have fun making your own Annie.

Thanks for sharing Annie, and all of your projects. I love making little quilts, and have enjoyed looking at your quilts - it's nice to have the inspiration! Aren't those Australian Mags the best?

Flat Annie was great, but stuffed Annie is so much cuter.

I seem to be having those 'right under my nose' moments more and more often these days. I don't think I'm a fan of them *s*

Carol said...

Oh Annie is so cute!

Ariane said...

She is so cute.!!! Adorable!!

Jackie said...

She looks so much prettier all fluffed up. I am so glad she has eyes too.

Kaaren said...

Annie definitely looks better with a few pounds on her. As a matter of fact, she just might get a call from Andy a bit later. He thinks she looks mighty fine too!

Karen said...

Oh, Annie is so cute! I want one!

Darlene said...

Annie is so cute and sweet ! Thank You so much for sharing the magazine information. I bet Annie will have lots of cousins soon!

Judy said...

Well lookie there she did fatten up right nicely! I bought a couple of the Raggedy Old Annie patterns to make one day and I loved seeing Lucy make that Old Faithy doll, but I haven;t gotten the inkling yet to make one for myself!

So does she have a name?

Teresa said...

Annie is a real Dollbaby. Great job on her.

Janet said...

She looks better as fat annie rather than flat annie. She's very nice.

Christine said...

Yay, so glad to brought her to life and gave her some eyeballs. Poor gal. She's adorable.

deb said...

I do that all the time, that why I have 10 things of black paint, and black and red floss, but could I find it right now.......nooooooo....so I will have to buy more and so on and so on and so on.....

Lynn said...

Now that she's gained a little weight she's looking even cuter! Don't you love the Australian magazines - wish I could find Homespun here in the US.

She's adorable Wendy. Great job. Are you sure she's gonna be the last one?? lol I see doll making in your future.

sewkalico said...

Very cute. About that losing/finding thing, I seem to do it all the time!

MARCIE said...

Nice job with Annie! She is a doll! Hee hee!

Thimbleanna said...

Annie turned out great Wendy. Your belongings sound like mine -- always under my nose but invisible!

Cathi said...

She looks so much nicer with a little "meat" on her! Although I do have days where I feel a little flat myself!

Quilt Hollow said...

She turned out just perfect! I like the framed piece she is leaning against too. *smiling here*

Candace said...

Wendy - it's amazing what a few pounds gained can do!! Sometimes it's good to gain weight - LOL! Annie is adorable and charming!
Cheers!

Carole said...

We ought to start our own "time flies" group! Like you, I know I'm getting stuff done, it just hasn't surfaced as completed yet!

What a cute Annie you made! She is just lovely! She does look much better plump! ;o)

Hugs!

Christine said...

Very cute. I like the little star 'badge' she's wearing.

Quilts And Pieces said...

Oh she is ADORABLE!!!!

Shirleymac said...

Hi stranger. I didn't go to as exotic places as you did but I'm glad to be home. Love Annie. I'm an Annie fan.

Anne said...

How did I miss this post? You can tell I've been out of commission with grandbabies here (again). Anyway, I love her and I'm so glad you finally fed her. Good job Wendy!
