Hi Pam! Thanks!! I have been receiving emails from some of the gals asking about them. They are machine embroidered and the yellow fabric makes them " look Happy" LOL! They are so fun to do, as I mentioned, I am planning on making some napkins with them on the edge.

WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON TODAY?

Today I am working on just staying awake! LOL I am tired from my fibro.

But also, I am working on packing up swap items for mailing out. That will
take me awhile and then I am going back down for a NAP! Some days are just
all about catching up on some rest.

Blessings,
~peggy

I am so excited. I am making my granddaughter, Mae, who is 16 mo., a "picking" apron for next summer. I found a picture of an adult "harvest" apron and thought, "how cute for Mae next summer when she goes out and helps me harvest vegetables out of the garden". So I made my own pattern (a first for me) and sewed it up, now I'm embroidering a farm scene on it!

Since I was born in Holland, and she calls me "Oma" (grandmother in Dutch) I am embroidering "Oma's Kleine Boerinije" on the apron. It means Grandma's little farm girl!

I am new to the Sisterhood and am going to make this my first project for a merit badge! I'll send you all a picture when it's completed!

Farmgirls are so talented and creative! I am so inspired by all of you and the pictures are treasured. Marlies, welcome to the forum. I just put the finishing touches on a tunic blouse I made for myself (just need to cut those buttonholes open--you'd think I was doing surgery, I'm so nervous!), then I'm starting an apron from my UFO pile.

Karieann, I love the bonnet -- what a grand job you did sewing and quilting it. I'm very impressed. What a beautiful addition to the world of women's wear. Suzanne

Hi, finished the overalls! They work great in the garden and in the kitchen. And I think they look nice with my assorted aprons too. Now on to more fun projects: the dolls. Suzanne

Juanita...that is so cool that you did that hair-cut for them. May God Bless you right back for your service to Him through serving others. I know He does and will because our God is just so loving like that. He says when we do it (anything) unto the least of them, we do it unto Him. And I know you didn't do it for a pay-back you did it because you have a big big heart. All the better!

Blessings,
~peggy
