I just finished applique on five newborn onesies for Mary LD (my pincushion sister) to take to Haiti this summer. When I have a moment, I'll post the photos. The weather is actually NICE here, so I'm gardening, not sewing. Frannie, Love the pincushions. JoJo, I gave up TV a long time ago to sew and read, but there are still not enough hours in the day!

Talking about what you are working on today. Well, not today. But this is one block that I started last summer which is the center of a large quilt. I need to get back to this project. Anyway thought I share. I think the image is too big. Still learning how to attach these images on forum. Need to fix that for next time.

zoed, wow a picture and a great one. i love your colors.
if you used photobucket there is a place to edit the pics down after you download them and before you put them on this site. but when the pic is that pretty who cares if it is big.
anyway, i cant believe you live in pearland. not far from where i grew up. i hope the gulf of mexico is not suffering to badly in galveston. anyway, how long have you been in that part of texas?

love

Thank You Joanna!

Frannie, I have been in Pearland for five years.
Moved here from Chicago. I love Pearland and
Galveston where I work. We have not Bern affected
at all by the oil spill. We are good so far.

I'm working on a vintage embroidery of a woman right now for a swap. I used crayons to tint her hair, flowers and dress and then the stitching part. I'm usually working on 3 or 4 things at once. LOL!


Next week I'm dipping my toes into cold process soap. I can't wait to try it.

Kittykill! A fellow Craftser/Farmgirl! Good to see you here.

Just got an order for a stuffed groovy kitty like this one, so I'll have to get busy. :-)

Hi Frannie, Today I have been crocheting some dish cloths and I like doing them because they work fast. I have done them in ecru, but I want to do some in other colors too. farm sister #1020 Juanita

I am working on Sunbonnet Sue blocks for a quilt for my daughter. I am thinking that I want to use 30's prints for the boarders.

Also making aprons for dishsoap bottles. Cute freebie pattern.

Have a wonderful day.

HI Mrsrooster, I have been working on some crocheted dish cloths for a few days now and I am almost out of cotton yarn. We live so far from a store (wal-mart) that sell it I have to wait until I get to go there. goodness the spool of the peaches and cream makes about 12 I think. Thanks for asking and it is always nice to write to another farm sister. Juanita Farm sister #1020

I just finished this for a swap I am in. The lady is a vintage pattern that I embroidered. I decided to tint her with crayons and the inside of the flowers are beads. I hope she likes it. http://www.flickr.com/photos/7528267@N02/4641034704/

Pam, if she doesn't, she's nuts - your lady is lovely! Those flowers are wonderful - I really like the beaded centers.

Juanita - hope you've replenished your crochet cotton stash! It's always frustrating to run out in the middle of a project. Then again, there are always plenty of other projects to work on until I can restock. :-)

Marcy - how's the tatting going? That always looks so neat. One of these days...

Amy - is your sunbonnet sue quilt full-sized? 1930s prints are some of my favorites.

My "craft" for today is going to be writing a blog post and keeping my little boy happy (or less cranky, anyway). He got into something the other day and is covered with hives. Looks like poison ivy or poison oak - except we live in Interior Alaska, and have neither ivy nor oak growing here. It's a mystery. Sigh.

I just finished another layer cake apron for the antique booth and tomorrow I am making my mom curtains and a tablecloth for her kitchen and then as soon as that is done I have got to make more childrens aprons for the shop, they are doing really well!
