I made a Harvest Apron for a friend from the pattern in MaryJane's "Ideabook, Cookbook, Lifebook." It is such a quick and easy project and just as cute as can be! I posted a picture on my blog and also a picture of the one I made for me awhile back.

Candy...loved your MJF Aprons on your blog-site. Very cute!

I am working on "relaxen" this whole week. My re-coop from two weeks of grand-girls. They wore me out
but in a very good way!

I should be working on MJF Angel Mail-Art...but I am going to wait until tonight to finish it up.

Susan...glad the purse sales are going so well! I will be sending my check out to you at the end of
next week. Can't wait to get my purse and thanks so much for making them uniquely One Of a Kind.
It is fun to have a purse nobody else has. :+)

blessings,
Peggy

Today I picked up a quilting book at the library and some fabric. I cut out all my pieces and will start sewing it together tomorrow. Picked up some delicious yarn and I'm going to make a dish cloth in a few minutes.

Julie...I make about 4 to 5 dish clothes a week. I am addicted to making them. I sell them, give them away, and swap them. I tell everyone
that I consider them "Cheap Therapy"! lol What kind are you making? Just curious.

Linda...I love to make prayer shawls too. For about 3 years all I made were Prayer Shawls and scarfs. I kept a Journal with pictures of each
Shawl I made and the story behind how God laid a particular person on my heart to make them for. I quit keeping track after 37 Shawls.
I made them for men with cancer, for women with all sorts of illnesses or needs and even for children with cancer or because their parent had cancer and they were afraid and needed comfort. It is an awesome way to bless somebody.

Tonight...I finished my Mail-Art and then sorted my buttons into seperate colors. So, now I have a jar of pink, a jar of blue, a jar of red,
a jar of white, a jar of purple etc. They look as pretty as canned fruit. They are eye-candy for sure!

blessings,
peggy

My daughters are coming to visit over the next month. Went shopping yesterday and bought fabric to make each of them a dish drainer quilt and matching dishcloth. I figure it's a little piece of home they can take with them.

AJ...lovely idea for your daughters. I am sure they will enjoy that! Something handmade from mom's heart to theirs!

This morning I posted a Step-by-Step Tutorial on my Blog Site, on how to make a Heart Shaped YoYo. They are so much
fun and so addicting to make.

I am making comfort shawls that I am hoping to send to anyone who might be in need of a hug. I have one done and I am working on another one. They are really soft and comforting.

Peggy- it's a free pattern off Lion Brand Yarn. Really simple though. Chain 44 and then do half-double in the back loop only till the piece measures 10 1/2 inches.

I saw that Simplicity patterns were on sale for .99 at Hobby Lobby. Had to get some for some bloomers and found a couple of patterns for bags.

Started sewing together my small beginner quilt piece.

Socks, lots of socks - they are addicting and you can buy it in small quantities (yarn is cheap). Also got back to working on a white summer sweater that I bought the yarn for in June. Too many projects started, not enough time - can't wait for winter!

Love comfort shawls....could use some comfort right now . I am not doing anything at the moment, just no oomph. Did finish the dishcloth though so that is done. Not sure what I am going to do.....first see if I can muster up the courage to get off the couch and atually start something.

I am cross stitching a sock monkey on a pillow case right now for my grandson. Even though I do not know if he will ever get it since his mother ran away to Montana with him. I fiqured I would finish it any ways and mail it to him. I pray she will give it to him. Ho-Hum....

I picked up several blank wooden signs at a yard sale for 25 cents each. Here is the first one I painted up. Hope it sells in my etsy shop. Its reversible!

My first attempt at homemade hamburger buns. They are still in the oven, they smell good, but the feel a little heavy. I don't mind goofy up baked bread stuff, what we don't eat the goats will.

Peggy... when you make your prayer shawls are you knitting or crocheting or ????? I love shawls but I think one dedicated to prayer would be a nice thing.

I'm actually not doing much of anything right now. Busy with the livestock, children and garden but hopefully in the winter I'll have the time. REALLY interested in spinning and weaving. I'm going to join a local guild and see if I can learn how before I spend that kind of money. But I did make homemade tortillas for supper tonight! Does that count??

Excuse the mess & the noise, my children are making happy memories

Kimberly...I knit mine but they can be crocheted too. There are books for making prayer shawls. Can google the words Prayer Shawl
and it will tell you all about them.

Yes, making homemade tortillas definately counts! :+)

Has it really been 3 weeks since anyone posted? I guess we're all busy harvesting and getting ready for back to school. I've been sewing--skirts for myself (another in progress) plus a new style Kindle sleeve I'm experimenting with (Peggy, do you like this style? I haven't forgotten you!). The laptop case was for my daughter who just went off to the University of NH and the notebook cover says "create". Dianne in the Hudson Valley

Has been awhile since anyone's posted here Dianne. Love all your sewing projects. Makes me want to go out and buy a Kindle just for one of your pockets! Here's what I've been working on these hot days when I am unable to go outdoors:

New style of collages inspired by a book I recently bought on Amazon. My favorite craft lately . . . doing papercrafts and fancy cutting!
