I'm working on Barbie clothes. Actually, clothes for Monster High dolls.
Pretty good for someone without a sense of fashion and beginner sewing talents, eh?
I finally got brave enough to try sewing for the dolls after stairing at them on my desk fora few weeks.

Made those same kitchen towels to give as Xmas gifts to my step daughters and daughter. Make them in matching colors/themes for each of their kitchens. Also gave the individual hot pads and dish towels to go with the others so they had a complete set. None of them are very crafty - actually not crafty at all - so they were blown away when I told them how I made them. Super easy. Great gifts when you're in a hurry. Made all of them some, but didn't make me any!! Will have to rectify that real soon.
Cherime, great job there! You are too, too talented. Do you "hire out" and travel?? LOL. Anyway, awsome job.

I just looked back several pages and I have to say you ladies are talented! I'm in awe of you all. WOW. I'm hoping once canning season is done and winter sets in I'll be able to do some crafting until then I'm to busy with the livestock, children, homeschooling and canning/freezing/dehydrating to do anything else. But I will, I will.

Enjoying a cup of tea and working on Angel of Autumn cross stitch. She's going to be gorgeous when she's done. So far, I've completed the Angel of Winter. Stitching on linen seems to take forever though!

My house! Stayed home from work with a bad neck spasm... the furnace isn't working, so I have to stay home for the whole day, not just go in late, waiting for the furnace person... so maybe I will ignore the spasm, and unpack, or paint. Now work sounds good... no heavy lifting, and it might be warmer!

Working on those little Monster High Doll clothes and the Jeffery Family History book today.
I actually made a little dress that looks good!
I'll send a picture as soon as I can take pictures that are not all blurry. ;D

Sheri, part of the reason I don't get anything done is that I am staying on this computer longer and longer, thanks to beautiful and interesting blogs like yours. It's just great, so well done, and very interesting. Love it! I think you might be on the thread about Sheep and Goats with Grace Gerber? I have read 100 pages of that so far and I just love it. I feel like I know everybody on there. I don't think the average person has any idea how many brilliant, funny, hard working, creative women there are out there doing such amazing things and creating wonderful lives for themselves.

I have not worked up the courage to do a blog yet, but am thinking about it. I also need to put some stuff on Craig's List and Ebay and maybe Etsy, but I don't know how to do it yet and am intimidated, but I have a lifetime of stuff collected or created that I need to start getting rid of. Part of the issue is how to price.....I don't know what anything is worth.

Hi Glenda - welcome to the forum. Yes, I am on the sheep and goat thread a lot. It's been kinda quiet over there lately tho - everyone has been so busy. I am glad you enjoyed looking at my blog. I, too am new to the blog world -my daughter pushed me to take the leap when she was home on vacation. I am trying to gather enough together to start my etsy shop and just like you said, pricing is a big stumbling block for me too. Are you a spinner too? What kind of dolls do you make? I have done some art dolls out of polymer clay with wire/padded bodies and also have done lots of teddy bears for the wee ones. I do a lot of marquetry work (you can see my boxes on page one of this thread) but I find that on etsy, marquetry doesn't seem to sell. One of these days I will take the plunge...

Blessings, Sheri

Putting together baby granny squares for my granddaughter that is due in January. My mom mades these blocks years ago before my son even got married. Her thumbs had gotten too painful to crochet, so this is the last thing she did. I have had them stored and when the kids told they were expecting in June, I started looking for them. They were in a "very secure" spot because I just found they 3 days ago. They are white with seafoam green or pale yellow centers, Mom said it would work for a boy or a girl. When it is finished, I will take it to the nursing home and get a picture of her holding it. I just hope that demon Alzheimer's lets her know what is going on for just a few minutes that day.

When you free your mind your heart can fly. Farmgirl # 714,

Today I finished a Baby Sock Monkey hat. It's a test sample for a few customers who wanted to know if I could make one. I made some sample swatches using different fiber yarns in case they wanted it in wool. I found the pattern at this link.
