Oh Frannie...house work is always there waiting for us! Creativity must be used while one is inspired!
So, no guilt Farmgirl Friend! Enjoy, and continue to inspire others through your talents.

Hi Frannie and Peggy, I do love Peggys Idea alot, Lol. The house work is all there to do when we get finished our creativity, Right.
I went to visit my stepson today in Newport News Virginia, he is home from Iraq for 14 days, Then he goes back for 3 or 4 months and will come home for good. I still haven't started the Christmas presents yet. Time is flying by, too. I'm always at the end of the cows tail, anyway. They will get done soon. Charlie and I are going on vacation next week. So I will be doing them when I get back..........Hopefully. LOL
Love and Hugs from your Farmsister #1020 Juanita

Hi Juanita...good to hear from you. Tell your Stepson that we APPRECIATE HIS SERVICE for our Country! We know those men and women are going through a lot of tough stuff over there for our Freedom over here.

Hope you and Charlie have a great Vacation. Relax and enjoy each other and whatever you are going to do.
My DH, myself, my youngest DS and his girlfriend are headed to the Oregon Coast in one more day...we are
all looking forward to enjoying each other's company and the Ocean.

Blessings dear friend,

Today I am working on "Forgiveness". It doesn't always look pretty while I am working on it
but usually the end result is breathtakingly Beautiful! A lot like Karrieann's Tatting!

I have been working on a new endeavor using yarn made of plastic bags. I'm making a recyled reusable shopping bag. It's in the beginning stages! I'm also crocheting an Italian flag for my Nana for Christmas.

Like your cross stitch Pam!!!!

Megan I started saving plastic bags to make those...but they took up too much
space in my little Apt. so had to toss them all. Post a picture when you get
it done.

Today I have been answering phones all day. Lots of Birthday Wishes...which makes
me feel loved!

Good Morning Ladies,
Due to horrific winds and thunderstorms today, I'm going to start an applique quilt called "Primitive Garden". Since I love to garden and can't at the moment due to foot surgery, I decided to garden on fabric!

I love appliquing Carmen. Please post a picture of your Primitive Garden during and after construction. Sounds like a good plan while the weather gets colder.

Peggy, I find that flattening the bags, the folding them into 4ths the long way then folding them from the bottom up about 6 times the take up less space I put a rubber band to hold them all together. I recycle them for all kinds of things, the bottom of waste baskets, garbage, trash, my husband double bags his mice when he catches them to trow into trash.

... still tatting away here. Just about finishing up on this one. It is the largest one that I have created so far... plus thread size does play in that role. Using size 10, where as I was using size 20 prior. This doily will be going to a Farmgirl.. since it is part of our barter agreement.


I enjoy reading everyone's "doings" Everyone is talented!!!!

Jill...Some People are just so smart...I never would have thought of folding them down like that. dah! That would definitely be a space saver. (now that I've thrown them all away) but I guess there are plenty more where those came from. Though I have mostly switched over to the big shopping bags now...that you purchase at most stores. They are very sturdy and I like knowing I am not mucking up our land-fills any more than we already do. But I did want to try making one of those bags...so who knows maybe I still will.

Sharon...love your little piggy chorus line!!! I so want to get into some more embroidery work...but right now I am making Christmas Ornaments for the Women in my Sr. Estates. A couple of us like to make everyone a little something each Christmas! So they know someone truly cares. I am making a plastic canvas star...that has sort of a quilted affect when I am done with it. They are cute and country looking!

The weather is lending it's self beautifully to crafting and not much else. Wet and wild here! Lots of snow in the Mountains. Which will make the Skiers Happy!

Blessings,
~peggy

Hi Julie ~ The pig design was one I found years ago. Can't even remember when. I enlarged it, put it on the light table and traced it three times with a disappearing pen. S

Hi Girls, I love the teal towel with the pigs, they are so cute. I love to hand emb.

I am working on my Christmas presents also, I am doing, the Bread cloths and will put them in Baskets along with the Blackberry Jelly I made this summer. Guess I'll make the grandchildren some winter pajamas. I had a bunch of christmas flannel given to me and I will use that. Guess I'll be pretty busy until Christmas. Hope you all have all your projects under way.. Hugs from this Farm sister #1020 Juanita

I'm working on a knitted scarf for the winter scarf swap--this is the first time I have used a yarn that seems to melt from one color to the next...teal to purple to blue to teal...and I am enjoying it so much.

I just found a pattern for hot pads. It is colored on one side and the white ob the back shows through. Now I have to purchase the book.

I'm on vacation in SoCal and so sick. I have cold sores and canker sores inside my mouth and my lips are so swollen. Then my tongue hurts to chew--as well as the inside of my mouth. Visiting my son and DIL, but can't wait to get home and get well. I have been having a wonderful time until this stuff came along. In fact, other than the cancer and maladies of OLD AGE, I have been doing well. We had some unusual weather the first part of the week I was here--lots of cracking thunder and lightning. Very unusual for this area.

Love the piggies.
