I just finished some lockerhooking hot pads and a table mat. I calloused finger from holding the hook too tight, but they turned out very pretty and scrappy.

I saw a few of these bracelets on the internet and thought I would try my hand at making one. All of the flower beads and the leaves are made from polymer clay. I really like how it came out even thought it seemed to take me forever to put it together.

I'm knitting a Red Heart Pull-Through Wrap. It's basically a rectangle that has a slit in it to pull one end through. Looks as though it will keep the upper arms warm on cool nights. My sister put me onto the pattern at the Red Heart site.

Just washed some black and white stripe fabric for another Apron and had some black and white flowered for a contrast, pocket and ties and neck loop. I think it is going to be pretty. I really need to make myself some new summer things. I'm having fun. Juanita Farmsister #1020

I'm new to the sisterhood and just applied for my first merit badge in knitting. I just made this sweater for my baby girl and I'm most excited about the buttons. My friend sent me a bag of her mother's vintage buttons and I found the perfect ones for this sweater.

My neighbor decided that I needed to have my garden tilled--so she tilled it with my tiller. She is such a sweetie. I helped and she did most of the work.

I am still working on a stitching project for my newest granddaughter. It is rather large and with life and all that has been going on it has taken quite awhile. I am finally working on the back-stitching.

Marcy,the bracelet you made is outstandingly beautiful,I love it!
It looks so delicate and ceramic-like that it is hard to believe it can be worn as a bracelet,that polymer clay must be pretty tough stuff.
CeeJay,your aprons are adorable,I always love seeing your new creations,they inspire me.
I just ordered a bunch of cherry print fabric from Joanns (it was a big order,I'm still feeling a bit of remorse) and am planning on sewing up a few aprons out of it using a vintage 1930's style pattern.
While I wait for the fabric to arrive I'm working up another of the cherry doilies like I made for my Mom in August,this one I'm going to sell on Etsy,I've only got the center done on this one so the only picture I have is of the last one I made,I may have posted it before but can't remember,anyways.this is what it will look like finished :
