Awww, Peggy-you are too kind. I am making the jacket for a friend so she can wear it while in London. That pattern would be so cute on a jacket. You should do it!

WOW! 9.50? That is crazy!

Hi Girls,Peggy ,kittykill,and all the rest of my farmgirl friends. I just love hearing from you all. Hope every one is well and busy doing what they like best. Today I worked on the tote bags alittle. trying to emb on the pocket of one, a friend is starting a group called, Waste Watchers and they go around the neighbor hood and clean up. it is ashame that some people just throw out paper and trash on the rosd sides. Any way she wanted a tote that would be easy to carry along and wanted their name on it, so I have been working on that, Yesterday I did some tomatoes and froze them for soup this winter. Our little garden is small but it sure is fun and we grow alot of stuff in it for being so small.
Yes a small group of chrstian friends have started a church. We like to hear the word preached as it is in the King James bible and it wasnn't being done. So many don't hear the word anymore. A friend of my Husbands had retired, or so he thought,LOL and now he will be our Pastor. We love it. We will be small at first. We will be called the, Colonial Baptist Church. Well farm girls I hope you all will pray for us and I will be praying for you all. Love you all Farm sister#1020 Juanita

I like the idea of the Waste Watchers -- that's fun. Each year, I take a group of college students to clean up a section of highway that we adopted. Or perhaps they take me -- at any rate it is a fun time for us.

Ah, the weekend coming and time for gardening and sewing and being with my husband and my lovely boxer, Abby. Suzanne

Hi Peg, Oh I would love to come to the Porch and bring some bb jelly and some Biscuits, That is what I had the other morning for Breakfast. A friend of my husbands come over every Wednesday for Breakfast and he had some on Scones and took a jar for he and his wife. He says he will hide it when the kids come over, LOL It was very good this year. I wish I didn't live so far away. My Stepson was in the Air Force out in Spokane and Charlie and I were out there about 3 years ago. Beautiful Country, I had never been of the west coast before and it was quite a treat I had never flown before, and I was not to thrilled but it wasn't bad. well I have to say good night for now, Love to all the farm girls.

Probably work on pew decorations & candles for Ashley's wedding in 2 weeks! Yikes! If it doesn't rain need to pick beans also. So much to do & only so many hours to do it! I am tired just thinking about it.

Peg, some of the kids art was amazing so realistic. I do some but don't sit down and paint like I use to. I do more of a mixed media, faux art, more craft projects I guess you could say. I am going to have to get a blog going when I get a change to have someone help me and take the time.
Today I am back to working on the pillow and starting another one. Have to clean my craft room up cant find a thing.

Peggy, have fun with the grandkids.

I woke up this morning to find our oldest son on the couch, wife and kids were in the guest room, and I had to leave for work. They'll be camping by the time I get home. I did slip into my stitching room and cut out the clothes for the new doll before I left the house.

I like to work on dishclothes or other hand work in the evenings. My legs get restless then so I just use the hand work to help keep them quiet. Oddly, it works well. Suzanne

Today...I am working on Laundry and cleaning up my room as the GD's will be sleeping on my
bedroom floor in sleeping bags. We'll be camping out in the Apartment for a week! :+)

You guys will be my moments of Sanity during the week. I am already thinking...oh, do I really
know what I am getting in to taking both of them for 7 days. Hee Hee! It'll all be good, I am
sure! One of my GS's here calls me The Fun Grandma...so, I am hoping the girls think so too
after 7 days with me. LOL

Blessings,
~peggy

Today my hubby and I canned some nectarines (he actually did most of the work), and I hit up the local fabric store, which is sadly closing down. Got stocked up for the quilt, some aprons, skirts, kid jammies, and a bag.

Katrina...I have never heard of canning nectarines but I bet they taste every bit as
good as canned peaches. Isn't it more difficult to remove the seed? Or do you just slice
around it?

Suzanne...didn't you say your garden wasn't doing so well this year? I just discovered today
that my spaghetti squash was rotting right off the vine. I am assuming because of all the rain
and cooler weather we had in the Spring and even this summer but it is very disheartening. :+(

I hope my grand-daughters want to learn some crafting because Grammy wants to teach them some.
Well...say a little prayer for me...as I raised 3 sons and I love my GD's but have never had
them stay for 7 days and tend to be a tad partial to boys (I wonder why?). I was so excited when
I invited them and now I am getting nervous. Maybe because I know my hubby won't be any help
with them. LOL He will tease them unmercifully but that is the best I can hope for.

Blessings,
~peggy

Hi Everyone!!
sorry I have not been on much recently, been buried in work and believe me, that is a wonderful blessing!!

Today I have 25 headbands, 30 scrunchies and 24 hats to make. . . although I do not believe I will get quite all of it done, sure feels good to have it to do!! I will try to remember to take a few pictures to share with all of you

Hope all you you have a wonderful day!

I plan to do some sewing and then continue on working on my craft room, spent the day yesterday going thru things and sorting them out. I did not realize I had that much STUFF in there.

Jill...be glad that you have a Craft ROOM to hold all that STUFF!
I'am jealous! My bedroom is my office, my craft room, TV Room, Library, Dogs room and my bedroom. And it is probably 10x12feet My hubby and I sleep in different bedrooms because of both of us having various health issues (which isn't our preference but a medical necessity) but truly I can't see squeezing him in here too. He's a big guy anyway! I keep all my crafting supplies on a bookshelf, in the TV Cabinet, in various totes, and in four plastic tubs stuffed under my
bed, in pull out drawers in the closet, and in a 10 drawer office supply storage unit next to my computer desk. It is Crazy...but I guess I can look at it this way...I have everything in it's place and it's less to clean than if I had an additional craft room!

GD's coming today and I came down with a terrible soar throat during the night. Hope it is just allergies from cleaning and nothing I can pass on to the girls. I am sipping on hot tea right now and think I will head back to bed for awhile more.

Blessings,
~peggy

Peggy, take it easy with your sore throat and grand daughters. I'm sure you will make lots of good memories for them. I did lots of crafts with my son when he was little. He still remembers and I still have his artwork around.

Garden is getting better but took a beating in June and is now just recovering in time for great thunder storms. Suzanne

Hi, we had some time off from stitching and gardening to spend with our two grandkids. I did give my daughter-in-law some dishclothes I'd made. She was thrilled.

Grandkids enjoyed the carousel here and a beautiful day. Grammie is worn out and Papa is too. Our little ones are three and almost two -- very busy. Suzanne

Tomorrow's agenda: more of the same and actually doing housework...ewwww lol

Joy in All Things,
Chassie

City-bound for now! Looking for my little piece of heaven...

Not much here - some gardening, lots of hours at work, and more dishclothes. The dishclothes are very soothing to work on. Suzanne

Peggy, most of them lost their pit just as easily as a good peach. The rest underwent minor surgery. : )

I'm dreaming up new ideas as I crotchet dishclothes. I want to make a Raggedy Ann doll -- a sort of primitive one. And I'm going to knit my next set of dishclothes for the practice. The weekend is coming, so I hope to get some good sewing done. Of course, my husband is taking apart our laundry room, so I'll probably being putting tile down for the floor. Suzanne

Just finished a pair of tea towels and added them to my etsy shop. Give a look in sharnymcclarny shop. Not much profit in it, but I love embroidering. Now on to my next project????

Sharon...Gorgeous! And besides your beautiful needle work...I love how
you finished the bottoms of the towels with the pretty prints and ric-rack.

I just finished my August Mail-Art and a gift for my Secret Sister which I can't say what it is... because "MUMS" the Word!
