I have spent a busy week plucking geese and pheasants that a friend hunts for the freezer. He gets the meat ..I get the birds and defeather them ... This is one of the feather hair pieces I am creating from them

I plan to dye alot of the geese feathers in various colors over next week or so.

My son is moving back in for 6 months or so and we are spending the day moving my sewing room to the small guest room so he can have a bit of privacy in the big bedroom in the basement. It's actually been a good thing for me, I am decluttering! YEAH!!! I have found several projects that I didnt finish and have made a vow to finish up everything before starting something new. Exception being a new curtains for the son's room, throw pillows and a duvet cover for his bed.
I also threw some ingredients in the bread machine for a quick fix for lunch. I'm thinking home made turkey soup from the pantry with fresh bread sounds yummy!

Bottle aprons! These are for a farmgirl friend!
Cute to look at, a bit fun to make but also a bit of a bug-a-boo to make!

Susan, Many prayers for you this weekend.
CJ, Love the bottle aprons. I don't have the patience to work "small".
Julie, The sock monkey hat was a huge hit at Christmas.
Made more Christmas gifts which I didn't get to post before. Reversible placemats and appliqued napkins for my son and his girlfriend and adult "bibs" for my in-laws. Next on my project list is a Kindle sleeve for my sister and "pogies" for my college daughter. What are "pogies"? Covers for hands and oars for crew! Dianne in the Hudson Valley

Dianne,
Love your projects! I've been asked to make adult "bibs" to sell at Farmers Market . . perhaps I'll do that.
Those little aprons, while kinda fun, were a bit tedious!

TODAY: finished altered spoon for Valentine spoon swap. I think it's gorgeous, but I can't post a pic until the swap happens.
ATCs for the VALENTINE ATC swap . . .can't post those pics either.

BUT, I belong to another ATC swap group outside of the Connection and I just finished three sets for three different swaps.

This is for "Celebrating Women" . . . all three for this series were the identical


This is for "The Cowboy/Cowgirl Way" . . . this series were all totally different from each other, this is "Pink Cowgirl".


This is for "Buttoned Up" . . this series were all totally different from each other as well


This is for "Vintage Romance" . . this series were all totally different from each other too.


This little art pieces are fun and kind of addicting.
Thanks for letting me share!
CJ

Some really cute things there. I have some lingering unfinished projects to work on. Not sure what I want to start next. The weather outside is nice so a new project will have to wait till the weather is a little more yucky.

I cut apart and dolled up an old General Mills flour sack and made it into a dish towel. It had been languishing in a drawer in my craft room forever so I thought I'd put it to good use. It is offered in my sharnymcclarny etsy shop now.

Lisa, I learn something new here every day. I didn't know you could dry feathers like that. Thanks for sharing what you are doing.

As always, thank you ladies for sharing your projects and photos.

I am finishing many projects this winter. I made one daughter this granny square scarf with leftover yarn (she loves purple).


For more photos of other projects, click on my "pioneer" blogspot link below. I'll have more to share soon.

Kristina..your scarf is so pretty . I love granny squares.
The Borax will dry them out and so will salt of any kind.......Th hard part is plucking the feathers and taking the wings. I feel bad but the birds are shot for the meat and otherwise the feathers would go to waste .
