Well its been awhile since I did much sewing or any of the such but yesterday I started working on a pretty rose cross stitch tablecloth. Feels good to pick that back up,seeing it transform inspires me!
Amy, maybe a crocheted hat or scarf?

So, not only am I working a scarf for a Christmas gift, but I'm making myself an envelope purse! It's almost done, and I can't wait for it to be finished!

I would love to see some pictures of everyone's work!!! Hint, Hint!
I will post some new pictures over the next couple of days of what I am working on. Making a doll outfit for a large doll, a few handbags and then starting on my own items after that.

Finished up the chicken cross-stitch ornie and almost done with the cardinal ornie. Put projects aside to add new stuff to my etsy shop. (This takes way too much time) I'm on holiday for 4 days, so I plan on finishing up the cardinal and finish an apron I've been working on. Will post pics when I get new batteries for my camera.

Too much to do, too many un-finished projects, too little time. I love my life. :o)

Today I have been working on A Christmas potholder for a swap.

Also, I bought a Vintage 1947 Schwinn three wheeler bicycle today! I am so excited. It needs some work
but over-all is in pretty good shape for as old as it is. It is older than me...so you know that must be
really truly Vintage. LOL

Hi, I started some overalls today -- bright red. Put the pockets in wrong but came up with a fix. At least I think it will work.

I also started some embroidered roosters. I like having hand work for tv time with my husband. We don't watch much in the summer, but in the winter I get a lot of stuff done. The roosters are very elegant in their finery and will be fun to pick up when I can.

Life is so very good today. Suzanne

I am working on a pair of socks for my daughters birthday. I have one finished and the second one well underway. The weather has finally warmed up so I am skirting fleeces and washing wool from my sheep for spinning. Later today I will be picking strawberries (yum)

Blessings, Sheri

I admire those of you who knit. My grandmother was a great knitter -- doing so to keep her arthritic hands in shape. I have many of her mittens still. I think I'll make a collage of them on a wintery fabric for a wall hanging -- one more project. I am not a great knitter. I knit doll hair and sometimes a prayer shawl. Suzanne

WHAT AM I WORKING ON TODAY? Laundry...can any one relate? Ha ha!


Suzanne...I started on knitting scarves, then 38 various colored prayer shawls, and branched out of from there. I can't read patterns for sick'em, I am a visual learner...so if somebody shows me how to make something I can crank it out. I am forcing myself to learn to read patterns though. Starting with simple wash clothes is a great way. And they are fun to make. I swap lots of them too. In two weeks time on the Swap and Barter I swapped out 40 wash clothes. So, don't say you aren't a great knitter...if you can do prayer shawls you are an OFFICIAL KNITTER in my book sister!

Hugs,
~peggy

Well its 100F and we do not have central AC, so have been doing little projects so as not to get overheated. The house is a mess - too hot to do vigorous cleaning by far - but I mended a tear in some PJ pants, sewed small bias tape loops onto the waistbands of my half aprons so I can hang them, stitched some vintage embroidered ribbon on a pair of pillowcases, and am knitting a lacy cotton kimono-style cardigan now. All with my feet in a pan of cold water while sitting in front of a fan, of course. Oh I also printed up a bunch of canning jar labels (from my Farm Kitchen post).

Today I was working on a baby blanket that I started back in January. It's coming along, but it's really big, so it definitely will take some more time.

I AM WORKING ON STAYING COOL TODAY! Joanna...I wish I were a snowman
today...I feel the trickle of the melt-down but not the benefit of the
cold body. LOL

I am also working on taking apart a small stuffed bird that I made ions
ago (ornament size)...I need this one for a new pattern and then I plan
to make some new ones only with some modern touches to them.

And I have one of my Crafting Groups tonight...so, I will be embroidering
on my tea-towel later in the evening.

I would love to see some of your purses posted too!!!

Blessings,
~peggy

I am working on a Christmas Quilt for my daughter. I need embroidery patterns to fit on a 9 x 9 block of cartoon mice. Anything will do. Have the Aunt Martha's patterns and a couple more. Anybody got any ideas besides clip art. I have tried and spent way to much time searching the clip art with no luck.
