Pam, your work is so lovely. You have accomplished so much. It is so great that to be able to do so well. I am still working on this quilt that I am making for one of my granddaughters. It is a log cabin pattern and the first time I am making a quilt that is more complicated than just the ones with big squares sewn together. I have never hand quilted or machine quilted either.

Hugs,
Nancy

Wow, everyone does such professional work here. Those are such pretty ornaments. And the quilt top is pretty too.

I made a few little head-ear warmers yesterday. I crocheted 6 rows of single crochets and made a little chain in the middle at one end and sewed a button on. It wraps around the top of the head and around the ears. It sure keeps my ears warm. I still haev mine on. I am going to make some more for the DD's and grands. So easy to do and fast. Just took a few minutes.

I worked some more on the wool blanket. And on the afghan. SO I am making progress here. But still so much to do.

Melanie...I missed your Quilt but thankfully everyone started commenting on it and so
I went back to look. NICE JOB! You must be proud of that! I have been thinking
that I might want to learn to do hand-quilting. I don't sew on a Machine...but
I'm not sure if at my age I want to take on that big of a challenge. And I have
the problem of no storage space in my Apartment. But I am still thinking....
Thanks For Sharing Your Pretty Accomplishment. See, it's people like you who inspire me to want to
Learn.

Blessings,
~peggy

Haven't read or posted in a while, as I've been busy at my day job and busier sewing at home. Looked back over the last couple of pages of posts--what beautiful work everyone does! Keep posting those pictures--they are so inspiring. Dianne in the Hudson Valley

I need more yarn! But I have many things I've been working on! I'm working on a granny square afghan, a crocheted Italy flag, and scarves to sell. I just need to make a yarn run!

Karieann...Thank You So Much For the Stunningly Beautiful Bible Cross Bookmark that you tatted for me. You met my expectations and then some! You picked out the perfect color combination! I hope you can post a picture of it so the other gals can see it. Thank You!

Dianne...I also love the wonderful Kindle Book Cover that you did for me too. It is so cute and I loved the Vintage Fabric you used and the coolest button ever!!! I will be sticking a check in the mail to you at the end of the week. If you took a picture of it...please post it for me on here. I am sure the other gals would love to see some more of your handi-work!

I love knowing such talented women!!!! And ones willing to do special projects when asked! I just feel very blessed!

Love and Hugs,
~peggy

Sharon...I cried when I opened your package today! I don't know what it is about your Talents girlfriend
but you always reach a chord that resonates deep within me! It is like you know exactly what will pluck
my Heartstrings! How do you do it? ~ My Little House and Key are already hanging up (they are the perfect size for my little Apartment lol) and every time I walk past it...I smile and then I want to start crying again.
I hope you took pictures and can post. I still can't get my computer to take the pictures off my camera. ~ Really you should see me everyday...on this computer...it takes me all day to go through my Farmgirl stuff because I have to hard crash this computer about ten times per day. It is beyond ridiculous...but until I can afford to replace it I am stuck limping along with it.

Thank You Friend...and I am sooooo sorry that I was NOT able to do the miniature for you.

Blessings and Big Hugs,
~Peg

I finished the wool sweater balnket for my parents the other day. It really turned out nice. I put big chunky buttons on it too. And I just turned down the edges about a 1/4" and sewed it. I have already tried it and it's warm! So I am sure it will keep my mom warm. I am going to make a pillow too.

Also finished 3 afghans, some scarves, dish clothes. Now I need to get some of them in the mail. Only 9 more days to go y'all!

Peggy, You are most welcome. I will try to post pix later today. Lots to do, plus a prediction of a big No'easter Sunday which will totally mess up my weekend!

Beautiful tutu, Cathy. All you farmgirls are a constant inspiration to me! Dianne in the Hudson Valley

Peggy ~ I am thrilled my simple little patchwork meant so much to you. I forgot to take a picture of it so can't post here. Your expressed appreciation and beautiful Christmas card is all I need as a trade. Best to you and yours for a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Sharon

I have been anchored to my kitchen the last several days making cookies. A big variety plate will be given to my son and daughter and a few of the neighbors before the holidays. Its tradition here and they've come to expect it...lol But I do have fun arranging the cookies and bars with little Hershey's kisses in between. Must take a picture and post it on my blog. Later, S

Peggy had asked for me to post a picture of the purple cross bookmark that I tatted for her. Well, I was so excited with it when I finished and sent it off to Peggy before taking a picture of it. Soooooooooooooooooooo... I tatted another one last night! And this time, I scanned it!



This one is ever so slightly different than Peggy's... ever so slightly!
