My black yarn that I needed to finish my Son's Knitted Scarf finally came in, been waiting since the first part of December for it, so hopefully I will not be able to finish it.
Then back to my Homemade Valentine's I am half way finished with them, I am having so much fun making them and I am so happy I decided to join the swaps.
Welcome Back Erica, crafting will make you feel so much better and peaceful.
Have fun farmgirl sisters.
Farmgirl Hugs,
Deb

It's always a treat to visit here and see what you all are currently working on.

Today I am cleaning up in my bedroom closet (also known as the Craft Closet). Dh will be delighted he can walk in there again. Ha ha ha!

I am also knitting, crocheting, working on the garden mushrooms possibly, and making a list of items I need to complete more projects.

I recently finished another knitted dishcloth and my 10 yo's last flower sack towel.

I finished my S.C.R.A.P. ornaments. They have quilled holly leaves and berries in the center.

Kristina I love the mushrooms. I read how you made them and was delighted to know how it was done.

Right now I am working on a quilt for my bed that I have wanted to work on since last August. Well, lots of things got in the way but now is the time. I love the flour sack dishtowel. I make those whenever I get the time.

I have been busy embroidering my merit badges. I am thinking of making them into a quilt or a wall hanging, adding on as I recieve more badges.

Julie...cute bag! Love it!

Kristina...Love your Mushroom, I am so going to make some of those for my
yard this spring. Very cute!!!!!! Also, loved your embroidery.

Today, I made my first ever Dotee Doll. I thinks she turned out pretty darn cute.

I really want to try my hand at making this teapot cozy - I'll have to see how much time, energy & light I have when I'm all done my list for the day!

Now that my swap partner has received her Valentine pincushion, I can post a photo of it without ruining the surprise for Madeline (aka Fille de Ferme). It was modeled after the girls, my 6 barred rock hens. I wanted to make it so it looked like she was wearing a little embroidered apron, like true FarmGirl!

If I remember correctly, I think it is about 4, maybe 5 inches tall. I "winged it" (pardon the pun) with my pattern based on some photos I saw online. I might try making a bigger one as a pillow or shelf-sitter type of decoration, but I'm afraid it would lose it's cute-ness, the bigger it got.

Finished these today
- "Petal" apron, custom order for a customer. Finished with some
yellow lacy trim.

- "Cat Clowder" Certified Farmgirl apron for my daughter.
sorry the pic of whole apron is fuzzy . .
Her favorite color is purple and the cats on this print are HER
cats!!!! Check out the note with the last pic.

Thanks for letting me share!
CJ









Robin has three cats, just like these. The black/white one is the only female, "Renegade". The tabby against the pillow is "Tiger" and the one with the Wide Load sign is "Stanley". Makes me laugh every time I look at this print!

Thanks Sharon,

And, just in case you girls want to know a "clowder" is, that is what you call a group of cats. :)

Well, I've just read through the last ten pages of this thread and must say you all are a talented bunch of farmgirls.

I'm working on a rag rug for another farmgirl, but I won't post pictures until she has received it.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I cannot master those things that I have not tried.

I finally finished my moms mothersday present! it was suppose to be for last year but my machine broke. But I am so excited to give it to her. I embroidered it and finished sewing it but then relized I forgot to put the button in the middle of the flower but I think it still looks great! I also put a homemade tag on it.

The pillow




the back of the tag! sorry it is blurry!
