Karrieann, you are so talented! That is so pretty! The only project I'll be working on over the next few days is writing a short story about a cell that goes through the processes within the cell for biology makeup homework!

Karen...thanks for the Sweet comment! And Thanks for the Christmas Card also! :+) And I love the fact that we all have such diversified talent don't you? I think People who do any form of Artistic Design appreciate even more the talents of others. Because we know we can't do it all or learn it all...but we truly ENJOY everyone's Special Gifts! And I love to surround myself with other people's ART. It just brings me such extreme pleasure.
Makes my little HOME a Happy Place!

Blessings,

Golly, I haven't posted on here in a long time. I am working on making 100 cat toy balls for the animal shelter I Volunteer at. The cats have nothing to play with all day so I think they will enjoy them.

Greetings! Finally getting around to posting some pictures. Here's a cape/jacket/scarf combination I made with a lovely boucle type fabric. The pattern didn't call for it to be lined, but I found great lining on the clearance shelf at Joann's so I lined it and added a clasp to keep it closed. Dianne in the Hudson Valley

The fabric is faux vintage from The City Quilter in NYC and it's lined in a soft yellow flannel. Dianne in the Hudson Valley

Hi Farm sisters, Merry Christmas to every one. Time is winding down now,you know.

I have been finishing up my Christmas sewing and only have a few more things to do. They are small things.

I have made 4 batches of fudge, and I don't know how many dozen cookies. I need a rest.

Has every one out there in farmland finished their sewing? Seems we never really get finished, so WE?

Well hope everyone is healthy and happy, God Bless and remember to wish Jesus Happy Birthday. Love ya all. Juanita Massey

Dianne...Lovely Jacket and Scarf! Nice Work! And thanks for posting a picture of the Kindle Case that you
made for me. You took a Nice Picture of it! I am so loving it. It is absolutely perfect to carry in my
purse without taking up a lot of bulky space like my Leather Cover did. Sent your check out last week...so if you haven't gotten it yet..."It's In The Mail" (yeah that's what they all say right? lol)

I just finished up several gifts for Farmgirls but I can't talk my husband in to hitting the Post Office again until after Christmas. Can't say that I blame him...but last time I was the one who waited in the long line NOT Him. But I don't want him to be a Christmas Scrooge...so I will have to be patient with Him! lol So, Sharon and Suzanne...you each have a Peggy Gift Coming Your Way...but it won't be on Santa's Sleigh! I tried...but the Big Elf refuses to cooperate! Hee Hee! They get so testy this time of Year! :+)

Love and Smiles,
Peggy

I made three of these little aprons today. I am going to have a cookie baking day with my great nieces and thought they could use an apron.

Peggy, I received your beautiful card with the check and your picture yesterday. Thank you! My older kids have Kindles now and everyone wants me to sew them a case for it! I'll be busy after Christmas.

Catherine, Adorable aprons!

Karianne, Your tatting work is exquisite!

Sharon, When is your birthday in January? Mine is the 15th.

And Darlene, If you post here, I received the lovely ornament from our Virtual Porch group. Thank you!

... at our home we have a Charlie Brown tree that we got last year. It is a perfect size... miniature. Well it does not have a tree skirt and I didn't like what the retail stores had for any option. Last year I used a light blue fleece blanket which belongs to one of our fur-kids. (like Linus' blanket) I was staring at a pile of silk ties that my Mom had already taken apart at the seams.... then BINGO... my brain saw a mini Christmas tree skirt! I cut off the skinny ends of the ties and sewed them together like "Victorian" fan style but kept going till it was skirt for our lil tree. It is coming out adorable... I need to add a backing and some batting then quilt it. I'll get some pictures soon after I finish it.

Dianne - wow, beautiful coat and scarf set. Did you make it for yourself?

I'm finishing up my socks. Hope to have the last one done tomorrow or Friday at the latest and then I'm going to do a simple block pieced baby blanket for my df's niece.
