Hi Susan - I'm posting a link to the method I've been using to baste the last couple of quilts I've completed. It worked out perfectly.

Hope this helps. Kim

I made myself a bookmark yesterday.


Today, I may crochet or knit one of my two (unfinished) blankets. I may also start to sort photos to complete scrapbooks for the kids.

Finished a "Blue Bird" Flour Sack apron . . . tried to upload a pic, but it IS on my "CJs CREATIONS" blogspot. I made it with different fabric for a customer.

I love the tractor quilt and the bookmark and the craft quilt blocks !!!!
The star dishcloths are so pretty .
Ceejay your apron is pretty ....... I cant do without wearing my apron most the day . I get a kick out of emptying my pockets at end of the day to see what all I have tucked away .
I so want to get my sewing machine out but I gotta get all these feathers made up into stuff first.
I am making hair combs right now.

I love seeing what everybody is making. Such inspiration. I love the tractor quilt and the bookmark and dishcloth.

Here's my latest. I'm making rag rugs for my next show.

You gals are awesome! What creativity! I want to learn to crochet and knit SO badly!

I am working on a bubble skirt for my 13 year old daughter. She's already making plans to wear it, and it isn't even finished yet. I'll try to post a picture soon.

Keep the pictures coming. I love seeing everyone's work!

i have been slowly crafting again, and have made these pin cushions for valentines day. they are my homage to the old candy that we all got for valentin days. i didnt like to eat it, but i always thought the candy and the sayings were s0 cute.

Love the rag rugs and the bluebird apron is gorgeous. I wish I had time to go back through the whole thread.

All you Farmgirls are so talented and creative. It inspires me to get working. Embroidered a set of seven dish towels for my DIL for her birthday this past week. Hope she likes them. Now working on dish towels for some "summer" friends - also going to make them each an apron to go with the towels. Have sort of given up knitting for the time being and doing the needlework instead. After reading this thread and seeing all the beautiful work everyone does, I'm going to have to dust off my sewing machine and get back to work.
Again ladies, thank you for sharing all your outstanding creations with all of us.

I can't quite figure out how to post pictures. If I did this right, this is the bubble skirt I finished last night for my 13 year old.

Jennifer, you don't have to use Photobucket for your photos. You can just click on that little "picture" icon at the upper left corner of the Quick Reply box and go from there. If you haven't resized your pic, the program will do it for you. However, the larger the pic the longer it takes to resize, so if it seems likt it's taking a while, just hang on. And, you won't see the actual pic until you either his "Preview" or "Submit".
Hope that helps!

Working on some ATCs for a couple swaps, one here on FG and another one in another swap group.

This is an Original: "Fresh" and it is for an individual in the other swap group.
These tiny little pieces are such fun!
