Hi pegsmiles, I really didn't do alot today as for as sewing goes or crafts. I did cut an invalids hair, A friend of mine has a husband that is an invalid. They count on me to cut his hair and to sometimes go to the grocery store when she can't leave. Well today it was hair cutting, I'm an retired hairdresser and I really don't mind helping them out. I did some odds and ends around the house, the normal things, thats about it. Love you farm sisters. Farmsister #1020 Juanita

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

..finished it last night!!!

TADAAAAAA!


Closer shot of the fabric. Got the birdie print from a Farmgirl sister in Tote swap... It took almost a year to decide how to use that print for I love it!
This bonnet is my own personal one.


I am loving this old fashioned style of bonnet with an updated fabric prints.. think I'll make a few more to add to my shop!

Oh Karieann...I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS ONE!!! It is so much cuter than the first one.
And I thought I really liked the first one and couldn't see how you could improve
on it but you sure did! I think the colors make all the difference in the world!
And I love the Birds! Oh, you must make more...they are just too adorable and I am
sure you would have no problem selling them at all. Way to Go Girl!

Blessings,
~peggy

Oh my gosh...I got so excited over Karieann's bonnet I forgot to tell you what I am
working on today: I am working on packing. I get to go spend the weekend in
Seattle for my Grand-daughters 2nd Birthday. I made her and her Mommy (whose birthday
is next month...matching Poncho's) Of coarse they won't be wearing them until fall
but they turned out so cute. I will have to take a picture of them trying them on.

So, have fun girls and I will chat with you later.

Blessings,
~peggy

I'm working on a Plarn crocheted tote bag. I'm about to run out of plarn so I'll be making more this evening. I'm also working on a re-creation of the WonderFile portable workstation on TV. I think they'll make great Christmas gifts for children to keep coloring books, colors, markers, activity pages, templates, stencils, etc.

Amy, terrific tanks and bag.

I'm starting on some pinkeepers while I am finishing up the dolls -- can you all tell that I just don't have one project going? I work all day with people and solving problems and finding options for them, so when I get home I want to create in a different way, thus all the projects. This one uses 50's style gelatin molds, antiqued by my husband and scrap fabric and ribbons. I'm making it up as I go, so I'll let you know how they turn out.

My best to all of you delightful women -- hope simply shines from your posts. Suzanne

Can't tell you how happy I am Karieann that you turned the pattern into these exquisite bonnets. I made them years ago and sold every one I made. Several went to a child who was allergic to the sun. It allowed her to go outside and play. Pioneer women had the right idea! Best to you, Sharon

Love the bonnets, Karrieann. Today I am washing and picking wool fleeces from my sheep. I am also harvesting some lavender for drying and some longer stemmed variety for weaving lavender wands. I really enjoy weaving the wands.

Blessings, Sheri

Ditto on "what is plarn?"

Finished one doll -- she has a hat that is adorable. I wrapped clothsline with one inch wide strips of cloth and then sewed it like a little basket on the sewing machine using a zig zag stitch. I'm just about to start on the pinkeeper and an angel doll -- she'll have red hair and purple clothes. She will be fun to make. Suzanne

Triple ditto on "what is plarn?"
Suzanne love the project you are going to do next! :+)
Crafting, Needle work, multi-media art...is so relaxing to me.
As well as reading, photography, and walking.

If I feel stressed at all...these activities are all cheaper than Therapy! LOL

Blessings,
