AsiyahK, Midnight with the birches is breathtaking. Is that your design?

Frannie.....what a cute idea to let your sis know how special she is. You inspire me to send some RAOK's to my sisters just because......

I am working on finishing some cross-stitch ornaments I started a long time ago. One of is of chicken on her nest and the other is of a cardinal with pretty dogwood flowers all about her. I'll post a pic when I'm finished. :o)

Frannie those bags are adorable. Hope you and your sister had a fabulous
visit. I just visited my sister a week ago and she gave me a beautiful
Angel that lights up. Aren't sister's precious? Mine is dying and I will
miss her so much when she is gone.

Blessings,

Hi Sherone!

Yes, it's my own design. Although I found that flowers, trees and birds are pretty popular with quilters, lol. Thanks for the compliment!

I am working on preemie hats and matching blankets. And also a Mile a Minute afghan for my Mom for Christmas.

I love those totes. I am a huge rooster/hen fan.

Got old fashion towels to put Aunt Martha's on. Haven't decided which pattern to use yet.

Have a wonderful day.

It's been a while since I posted on this thread. Today I was working on a discloth for my Mom. I really want to start making them as gifts, though. Maybe for my Aunt and Uncle's wedding!

Today I worked on some Embroidery Red Work. It is a rather adorable fairy sitting on
a mushroom. I am doing 3 tea-towels all in Red Work. The 2nd one of the other two is
a Can-Can Girl and the 3rd one is Two Turtle Doves surrounded by Scroll-work and hearts.
These are my practice pieces to get back in to Embroidery which I haven't done in 30 yrs.
I am really enjoying it once again...but it is almost like re-learning a craft long
forgotten.

blessings,

Last night I joined some sewing friends to help make pillowcases for charity. Brought a stack home to work on over the weekend. The quilt shop owner has a specific number of pillowcases she wants made by the end of June. She's provided all of the fabric, classroom space and snacks to those willing to sew. She's been such a great support to the quilt guild that we wanted to help however we could.

Wow! All of you have been very busy indeed!! It has been awhile since I have been on and even longer since I posted. Let's see, the latest things that have passed through my sewing room are: Several pieces of clothing. . . redesigns and new pieces, dolls, a couple of quilts, many baby blankets, a tractor seat, couple of leather jackets for new zippers and lots of mending! Needless to say, I am super happy and love being busy again!

Hi Joanna! How is the knitting going? I hope that you don't find it too difficult! Today I'm trying to finish up a scarf for my aunt's Christmas gift. I crocheted some Granny squares, and I only need to make two more. Then I can start stitching them together.

well, I seem to do okay with the knitting. . just need to continue practicing. . . the best part is all my "mistakes" work great in the kitchen sink!! LOL!!! Doing the dishcloths is nice, you can practice and actually finish something in a reasonable amount of time. Giggle, maybe some day I will get the "feel" for knitting and move onto something else. . . until then, I won't need to worry about needing something to wipe up a spill or dust something off since I will have plenty of dishcloths on hand!

I'm heading to the quilt club with my mom this morning. She's been great and got started on the quilt I needed for a wedding gift. My goal is to hand top stitch it, but we have lots of sewing to put more pieces together and more cutting too...

Hey Teresa:

I see that you are working on pillow cases - I have made 35 and submitted them to the local quilt shop. My personal goal is 100 by the end of the year. On Monday I put together a fannel baby quilt that I will also donate to the local quilt shop. At the end of the year they donate them to local community organizations.

It is so rewarding. Have a great day Farmgirls.

everybody is so busy ! I have the task of outfitting 17 Flag Corps uniforms with new trim plus sewing new flags for them. I am their advisor and am trying to save us money so we don't have to buy expensive uniforms if new trim will do. I hope it all gets done by summer marching band in August

OK, I am going to try this again. I wrote a nice long response to some of your stitching posts and then my computer ate it, I guess.

So here goes a shorter version.

I finished my first RedWork Tea-Towel and it turned out really cute.
Pam, this pattern was from Jenny Hart's Sublime Stitching Craft Pad...which is 75 different Transfer Patterns. I found it on Amazon for $3.95 originally 12.95. Didn't you say that she was a friend of yours?

Remember me saying last week that I wanted a Three Wheeler Bike with a Basket on it? I told my husband today that I wish they weren't so expensive brand new...because I really want a new one. He said, "Well, we could get you a little girl's bike and put training wheels on it then you'd have an inexpensive three wheeler!" funny man!

It sure is nicer to embroidery in the summer verses knitting; the fabric is so much cooler! I am really enjoying it but have other projects that take my time too. As I am sure you all do too.

Well, looks like we are all happy stitchers with lots of it being done. I am thinking Christmas for a few different projects. Can't start too soon. Can you believe tomorrow is July 1st? WOW!

Blessings,
~peggy

Peggy-
I'm with you, thinking about Christmas. I started making crochet covered hangers (very nostalgic for my family...Grandma made us some every couple of years and we all still have 'em), but kind of petered out here. I'm going to pull my crochet bag out again. I had a bumper lavender crop this year so I think hangers and some lavender sachets are going to be in the works. I picked up a couple of super soft pillowcases at rummage that I might use for the sachets. OOOOOH, I could make those little rice bag heating pad things with some lavender in them, too. That's quick and in my ever-tightening budget. Now, what for the fellas???
