Valerie, very nice work.
Lorie, great job on getting your badges embroidered. After all these years, I have not embroidered one of them yet.
Kathryn, LOVE those chickens! Too cute!

I'm working madly to get an afghan done for the next Farmer's Market. I'll post a photo when it's finished.

Haven't been working on much of anything this week. Just returned from White Water Rafting. Did buy a really awesome shawl pattern and am going to a fiber show tomorrow so I hope to get started on it this weekend.

Love the chickie pin cushions and the farmgirl badge is the bomb!!!!!



The road to success is not straight. There is a curb called Failure, a loop called Confusion; speed bumps called Friends; red lights called Enemies;caution lights called Family. You will have flats called jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination; an engine called Perseverance; insurance called Faith, and a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success!! Or as my Grandpa use to say "There is never a road so long that there isn't a curve in it"

I re-purposed a cabinet door that I bought at the 'Habitat-4-Humanity store...for $1.00
painted it, added forks for handles & cast off drawer knobs for feet...


now I am thinking I might change out the white knobs for the clear (crystle type) ones...to give it that added bling! So off to Hobby Lobby I go! lol!

oops! the framed mini quilt piece is not attached,,, but it was a Thrift find,,,I changed out the frame and like the red much better. as for the 'Genie' decanter,,, that's for a friends, 'Aladdin trailer' that she dubbed, "Jeannie" as in 'I Dream of Jeannie'..lol!

Thanx Diane & Peggy...
I think I may have to go back to the 'Habitat-4-Humanity' store & buy another one,, a tad bit larger...and turn it into a chaulk board...chaulk board paint the center and then paint the 'frame' in red....for my kitchen... or I can take it with me when I am Glamping in my trailer...and use it as a message board outside my trailer...
Oh the things we can create with money & paint! lol!

Grace,your tray is adorable!
I've been working on that cherry doily for my Mom,unfortunately today is her birthday and I am nowhere near having it done but I'm going to give her one of the chicken pincushions,a rose print terry towel apron and I made her some creampuffs so I think she came out alright.
This cherry doily has alot of bits and pieces but it's working up so cute,I think it's the happiest doily I have ever made,I only have a coule of the branches made so far but I have to show you gals.

LOVE, LOVE the cherry doily! (someday MAYBE I'll try to find the time to learn to crochet!)

I, too, love your tray Gracie. I'm fixing to do something to a couple of small desk drawers that will include spoons for handles . . .

Thank you ladies for the compliments on the doily,I am enjoying making this one,I have been planning on making this one for awhile,it's in an old vintage needlework book I have but I always saw how many little cherries and leaves it required and set it aside but now I'm glad to be doing it,now I have about seven cherry clusters done so I'm getting closer.
Emily I'm thinking about opening up a little Etsy shop to sell my doilies,I just wasn't sure if there would be a demand for them,my Husband always teases me that I spend so much time making such a "useless" thing (I just roll my eyes,men just don't understand) so I wasn't sure if many people would want to buy them,I guess I won't know until I try so I'm going to give it a shot.
Ceejay how did your weekend market turn out? I love your aprons!

Wow ladies, everyone's projects are wonderful. Love the tray idea, and the doily is darling. Not doing much in the way of sewing. Am working on another "girlie tool belt". Almost done with it and will post a photo when complete. Want to start a hat tomorrow with the sewing girls. Shall see.

My quilt is coming along. It is a very slow project when you quilt by hand. Will be glad when I can start the next one. (getting tired of looking at this one! hahaha)

Hope everyone has a great day!

Hi Kathryn ~ What I like about selling on etsy is that it only costs 20 cents to list an item. If it doesn't sell, you're not out much. Who knows what will sell??? Jump in and give it a try.

Kathryn . . thanks for asking about market and for your compliments on my aprons!
Last Saturday was another GREAT sales day! They almost cleaned me out! What is the most fun is when I have ONE apron in a certain style and color combination that gets sold and then 2-3 other people come by wanting that one. They had seen it previously, walked by thinking they'd come back for it. It happens often . . . I take it as a compliment. Usually it will lead to an order! Sometimes the customer will find something else they like.
And then there are the times when more than one person is interested in the same apron and the 2nd person is watching and waiting for the 1st one to make a decision. Watch what happens when 1st person puts it back on the rack and 2nd person is watching closely!
I love a lively apron sales day!
I won't be at market the next two Saturdays which gives me a bit of a break, BUT I have a lot of sewing to do before the next market day!

Yesterday, finished making a tablecloth for a customer who collects my aprons too. And, today I make an apron for another vendor, finish some ATCs and more preparations for our next "tent glamping" adventure (with my daughter) over Labor Day weekend.
Thanks for sharing all your creativity everyone!

Kathryn,,, your doily is ab-sew-lutly beautiful! I wish I had your talent to crochet.

Isn't it amazing how we each have our 'talents'... I sometimes find myself overwhelmed at all the creativeness you ladies have and wish I could 'do it all'... but sadly I don't think there is enough years in my lifetime to master everything... lol! so I will just admire your work and dream of how fun it would be to create your lovely handi-work... in the mean time... I'll go play with my can of spray paint! lolol!
hugz to you all....

After years of not sewing for my Chatty Cathy and others who needed duds on ebay, I got an order for two more outfits. Fun to sew for this sweet doll again!
