Helena...very pretty pillows. I am not usually a big fan of yellow (just not my color) but these are just
charming with the Vintage Look and The Lace. She will love them I am sure.

Blessings,
Peggy

Hello All !

I finally finished working on some Spring/Summer bags.



And also some applique wall hanging, made with some old burlap bags (my latest obsession, lol):




Thanks for letting me share. Have a happy day!

Debra and Helena, your projects are wonderful! I haven't been able to do any craft or stitching projects lately. Very busy with a huge garden and extra long hours at work. I have my fingers crossed that the workload will even out this week so I can do something relaxing and fun next weekend!

Cheers! ~ Marilyn

So many beautiful things in here. I love to make things too, but lately my projects are leaning more towards Household Management. Trying to get organized- getting ready to move.

I love the bags and hangings. They are so colorful and pretty. I am making some aprons for a swap right now and to send to a friend. Also working on some small quilts for the local animal shelter for the animal cages.

Today I am going to tackle my scrap bin and ugly fabric. I have been reading Bonnie Hunter's blog and she has inspired me to use up my scraps. I have always loved scrappy quilt. So I am cutting fabric in strips - 1.5, 2, 2.5, and 3.5 inches. She also say's that even the "ugliest" or "why did I buy that fabric?" looks different when cut small. I do have some of the "why fabric" doesn't everyone? I guess that this could also go in the cleaning up section...LOL Barbara P.S. I love look at everyone's pictures!! Great job everyone!

Don't forget to laugh!

I have been making little chicken pinkeeps recently and selling them at the Farmers Market!



I also invite everyone to check out DH's artwork that I posted about on my blog. I think he's pretty good! :)

I'm learning about junk art journaling and thinking about how I can use this type of thing in my daily devotional. It's cool that you can have writing and goodies stuck on the same page. Some people even sew on the pages! Maybe this will motivate me to actually write in the thing!

Hi Farm Girlfriends,
All week I have been working on a Dress and a shorts set for my Granddaughters Birthday. It was last year when I made a dress for her BD, for June 10. This year she will be 7. She likes me to make her a dress. She is quite the Girlie Girl, she wanted to wear a dress fishing the other day and her Mom told me about it. I had to laugh.She likes bright colors and I find the brightest one I can find. This year it is lime green and pink and white stripe, with a matching flower fabric to coordinate with it. Very cute. Other than working in the garden I have been busy doing everything a house wife does, Thats about it and this keeps me busy. will have to go ,late now. Have to get some sleep. Hugs Farmsister 1020 Juanita
