Sharon . . your quilt is absolutely gorgeous!!! What a work of art!!!

Dianne . . well, I don't know how to knit, crochet, spin or weave. I've never been bowling (I know, hard to believe) and I'm a very, very poor swimmer. There are probably other things . . .
Thanks for the compliments!

Hi girls, Well I'm trying to finish up Christmas Presents and I said this year that what I couldn't make won't be bought............But I have 3 teenage g- children that have cars and one in collage and they can use gift cards.so.........I am buying those. But all the rest are homemade gifts. Pjs for the 3 gg children and I'm making Pillows and bread cloths and coasters and pin cushions and candy and cookies and fudge,also I have made some pepper relish and strawberriy jelly and grape jelly and also blackberry jelly. and I'm winding down now, getting tired. Have a most Blessed Christmas to all the farmsisters and their families. HUGS Juanita

I am working on unpacking all my arts and crafts supplies! I'm so excited to see all my "play things" I haven't seen in months! I'll be even more excited when I can get them all organized and ready for action! (sigh) One step at a time! :)

That is a lovely quilt Sharon! My sister had one like that when we were growing up. I don't remember what was on my bed lol. Maybe I didn't have one?

I'm finally getting to do actual "work" on my niece's quilt! I've finished the cutting, today I did the folding & pinning & now (at almost 4 pm) I'm starting the sewing! Hopefully this part doesn't take me too long!

Merry!! Ho!! Ho!!
I made this one for ME!!! Found the fabric in Phoenix while shopping with my daughter and decided to make a Christmas apron for me and, yes that is red pom-pom trim on the pockets. I call this my "retro" style and is one style that I make to sell (finishing up one today for a customer). I wore this to the Christmas Bazaar a week ago yesterday where I was selling my aprons (GREAT sales that day!!) and, I could have sold several of these . . the lady in charge of the bazaar kept trying to steal it from me.

Yesterday I wore it to go shopping in town . . and while at Walmart a man in sporting goods asked me where "we kept the big batteries". I had to tell him I didn't work there. He smiled and said "Okay, I like the apron". Then a gal in fabrics, who knows me and has cut miles and miles of fabric for me, asked me if I made it. After I told her I did, she said "that is adorable!". Then there was a lady in mens clothing who asked me where "we had hats and gloves". I had to tell her that I didn't work there. She apologized and said she saw the apron . . . got lots of compliments and had a ton of fun! The "greeter" lady on duty a lot when I go in also knows me and we always chat and she admired it. I'll be wearing it again to town . . . why not?!?!
CJ

P.S. The wreath has my Christmas Apron ATCs attached to it with tiny clothespins. They are from a Farmgirl Swap.

Sharon lovely quilt.
CeeJay, that's a good one and the apron is great.
I ordered some crochet books from Dover press and was amazed at how quickly they got them to me here in Alaska and at Christmas time to boot.
I am working on some crochet stuff. Lots of doing and lots of ripping out and redoing.

CJ....how adorable you and your Holiday Apron are!!! I bet you had all kinds of compliments and
fun wearing it out shopping! You must learn where everything is at WalMart if you are going to
keep doing that! LOL You can be Santa's Little Helper!!!!

Kristina, wonderful work on the dog coat. Your dog looks so proud to be wearing it too!!

Ceejay, that apron is so pretty. The colors are outstanding! I love pom-pom fringe!! That is so funny about how people kept asking you for directions in WalMart.

I've been working on Christmas gift bags. My hope is to make enough in a few years the family can use them over and over and pass them around.

What a great idea Laurie. I love the idea of using gift bags again and again. This year we are wrapping with newspaper. Do you have patterns to share?

Thanks girls! Appreciate the compliments!
Peggy - I spend so much time (and money) in Walmart I do pretty much know where everything is. However, our Walmart (don't know if it's with all of them) moves things around so much that sometimes I have to learn location all over again. . . grrrr!!!

Kristi - love the dog coat. Intended to make my Bramble one a year or so ago, but didn't happen yet.

YOU GIRLS ARE ALL SOOOOOO TALENTED!!!
CJ

P.S. Thanks Peggy for calling me "adorable"! I am about to celebrate my 63rd birthday and I needed that! Thanks!

Kristi...Love the Dog-Coat and obviously so does your Dog!!! He looks so
contented there in the sunshine...all nice and warm in his new duds!

Paula...My first reaction to the dog-coat was just what you posted..."OH, He
looks so proud!"

Laurie...the gift bags are a brilliant Idea! Are they cinch string?? What
a great way to cut out the gift wrapping cost (eventually anyway!)

Well, girls...I need to get something done today. My Christmas Cards Especially.

Have a lovely day being Creative,
peggy

Way to go Kristina. The blanket looks lovely with the scalloped edging!

Laurie, the gift bags are a wonderful idea. My mother, the queen of re-use, starting using pieces of fabric from her scrap stash to wrap presents about 10 years ago. I think some people thought she was odd and showing signs of senility for doing it...now it is all the rage. Her habits have rubbed off on me. I found myself in a dilemma about throwing away a bread sack the other day and decided to keep it. Then I found a reason to use it the next day!
