Seeing the apron pattern, I can't believe we women had waists that looked so small. Mom always said that my 23 inch waist was impossible to maintain--she was right. It has bloomed.

Marcy, Your angels are so sweet!
What a great idea and wonderful service, Marie!
I love those handwarmers, Neeter! I'll have to make some. I already make handwarmers and what I call sleevies (for my elbows) but they sure aren't as pretty as those pictured.

I made this little cat and really like it.



But I think this is one of my favorites. You can't beat a teddy bear and his pony.

Marcy,

The word to describe your clay pieces: delightful : )

They are just so charming and really are full of delight. I admire your creativity and talent.

My best clay work was done around the age of maybe 6 when we all made the ubiquitous dish (used to be an ashy tray, right?) in art class at school. It has been downhill from there!

Love the idea of the wrist warmers from felted sweaters. I just happen to have some sweaters and my daughter wants wrist warmers. Hmmm.... Christmas present coming up.

Anita...love the wrist warmers!!

Marcy...your clay creations always amaze me.

Betty J...your quilt came out so pretty.

Judith...you don't look old enough to have great grandbabies. The pictures were all precious.
You have been very busy this summer. You amaze me being a Fibro girl that you get so much
accomplished.

Connie...did you say that table cloth was from your grandmother? It was so pretty. I only made one
small stitch crochet piece in my entire life and it was back when I was in my 20's and I made a
huge ripple round tv doily and never again did I ever attempt anything with such a small needle.
Probably why I have arthritis in my hands to this day. LOL

Everyone does such awesome work...love popping on here and checking it out. I am always lurking.

Love and Hugs,
Peggy

Ok still haven't figured this out where it will put the picture here but these are some of the snowflake wreaths I did while at the farm with old electrical fence webbing I found that had been pulled off the posts & dumped in a huge pile. since I love origami I thought since the webbing could be bend & shaped I could create something with it during the cold snowy winter....Michele'

She, my DGD, picked out the fabric when she was visiting. Wonder if she will remember it? I thought it turned out well.

Michele...gorgeous snowflakes.

Betty J....lovely night gown. Grand-daughter will love it.

Sweet Connie...sorry thought it was a table cloth...LOL...shows you how far gone I am with my Fibro-fog.
Can't remember from one page back of pictures. Any way...your Aunt did a beautiful job. Does the bedspread
snag easily? Or do you even use it? I would be afraid I would ruin it or one of the pets. So Stunning!

hugs and blessings,
peggy

Peggy, I never use it as a bedspread, It hangs on a rack in my guest room. I put it on my Piano for special occasions, Like Christmas. At those time, we are a No- Pet zone, Pets are either locked in DH Man Cave or outside ! I have a Baby Grand so it makes a purr-fect scarf! My Mom just passed it on to me it to me, she said she remembers Aunt Mattie working on it in the early 1950's when she was in High School, Aunt Mattie was the Quilter, crochet, and knitting master of our Family, she made all my dresses when I was little. I have several dresser scarves she made and some of her Depression Glass. She was like a Mama to everyone in our family! I hope you feel Better! I am in the MS fog too and DH is sick too!

Betty, that is Beautiful! I would jump for Joy when Great Aunt Mattie had made pj's or a dress for me!

Michele, beautiful Snowflakes!

Thank you Connie. I have lots of crocheted stuff too that I picked out from my mother's collection before my dear brother tossed it in the garbage. I'm so glad I did. I grabbed lots of her photographs too. Now I need to find out which relatives those are so I can pass them on to my son. He is really into family.

Oh my . . . what creativity and talent! I love coming here and checking out what you girls are up to!!

I've been glamping up my "new" little trailer! Yes, I was able to bring home a CUTE, SWEET 10 foot, 1971 Sprite in great shape. Very little repair needed. After cleaning up and making some adjustments I've been sewing a little but mainly just using things I have to make her look sweet . . . kinda cottage-y with a bit of a Scottish flare. Have more to do, but want to wait until my glamping partner daughter can consult with me and she lives 400 miles away!

BUT, also made an apron for the Christmas apron swap, finished a curtains/tablecloth/placemat order for one customer, a placemat/napkins order for another, a glamper girl bag for a customer . . . and the list goes on!

Love creativity!

Thanks for your kind compliments! I think I'm taking a "sabbatical" from "Farm Fresh Aprons" for a time. Not sure how long but some time.
Hopefully there will be some new inspiration for other projects!
Thanks again!

Betty, Doesn't it surprise you how people can throw away such treasures that are Family made or owned! I am so glad you got to rescue yours! My mom and I take everything our family throws out, if It belonged to my Granny or her family or my Paw's family! that is why our homes and attics are so crowded!

Isn't it surprising that I haven't spoken to my brother since my mother's funeral. He cleared everything out of her house--only I got my "stuff" before he got there. He was executor of the estate, but when he behaved the way he did, I wanted to preserve some things.

Not surprising Betty. I haven't spoken to my brother in four years after how he went against my mother's will and wishes after she passed. So ... you are not alone.
