I made 2 aprons this morning, when I couldn't sleep at 5am. Have been doing deconstruction in the bathroom since.

Hi Girls, I haven't posted in quite awhile, either. I have been harvesting the Tomatoes from my garden and doing some jelly. Doesn't leave much time to be in the sewing room. But now thats over and I can think about Christmas, I'll start to sew.
I want to make the 3 Greats some winter pjs and I will make my self a jacket of red fleece. My g granddaughter needs some winter clothes and I have a very cute Jumper I want to do. I can keep myself busy during the winter when we csn't get out side. LOVE IT. Hope every body is well. Love and hugs from Farmsister 1020 Juanita

Sharon, LOVE your paper crafting. You are so multi-talented! A real Renaissance woman (I am reading How to Think Like Leonardo Da Vinci).
Sidavis, Your Lizzie purses are beautiful. Is that vintage bark cloth you are using on some?
Grammytammy, Pictures, pictures, pictures! We want to see your aprons.
Peggy, Which rose fabric are you referring to? I want to be sure I use the right one.

I just had a little lesson from a friend up the road on how to make a granny square! I need to go practice now.

I love to see all the pictures of all your projects. It inspires me to make some things now.

I have been working on this cat teacup for charity. Still have quite a bit of progress to go! Later on the charity group will combine my cat teacup with other teacup designs into a quilt.

I just finished up some potholders for a wedding gift. They were pretty easy to make all of the way up to the point where I added the binding. Then it got kind of tricky. I had the potholder and binding all pinned up with pins sticking out in all directions sitting on the kitchen breakfast bar one day, and my husband moved it out of the way by pushing it with a ceramic coaster, saying something about a porcupine.

Paula I love the potholder's you made! Dianne the quilt is put together by a charity that I work with. I am still working on my cross stitch item for the quilt. Here is their website, which shows other quilts that have been completed by the charity group. http://worldofcharitystitching.blogspot.com/ Some of us stitch and others quilt (some do both as well).

Here is another update on the cat teacup, I am getting to the end of the bottom of the teacup. Next then will be the hat and the ears.

Love the potholders and the tea cup too. I made pot holders for my DIL's Christmas present - to go with the apron I made her. Working on MJ badges too

Ladies, you are all so talented and inspiring. I just love all the work you are doing - beautiful. Makes me want to dust off my sewing machine and get busy doing something for gifts or for family or even just for me. It's such a pleasure seeing what everyone is working on.

Paula, I love the pot holder you made. Do you have a pattern or do you sell them ready made? I love to have some.

Hi Susan,

I found this pattern on a website that has a bunch of free potholder patterns:
http://tipnut.com/potholder-patterns/

If you don't want to make your own, let me know and I'll whip up some for you! I use the Insul Bright inside, so they are safely insulated from the heat.

Hi Paula, thank you for the website information. I will definately make some of these as I'm always getting my potholders "messy" and have to replace them. I have LOTS of scraps so this is a good way to use them up. Thank you so much.

Susan

OK, I'm ready-Let's go.

i have been working on the farm, my blog, and some aprons. these are the domestic goddess aprons that i have made for a long time in honor of my dad. so good to be creating again.
i am so inspired by all the post here and the beautiful work that you farmgirl friends create.
thanks for taking the time to share your treasures with everyone. they have kept me inspired during my illness.

this is a pic of my dad and his friend, pete savanich, from bolivar penninsula, in galveston county just after wwII. i like to use this pic of him on my hangtags.

This is my new commuter project...what I work on while my husband drives us in to work (I drive us home). This is one of many more...the final project will be a vest. It is a join-as-you-go project, which will be something a little different for me.

it is great to be back too, thanks, sherri. i have had a busy year of grandchildren here at the farm and while it is a blessing it really reminds me how out of practice i am. i also know that as soon as we settle in they move on!!!!
anyway, all the crafts here are so inspirational and just have kept me so inspired.
i love the kittyteacup, too cute and quaint . cant wait to see the finished product paula.
