I just completed a Valentine pin keep. I get so many inspirations from here and also Pinterest and decided to make a felt pin keep. Lots of embroidery and embellishments. Was fun making it :) Now I want to make a whole bowl full LOL.

Happy farmgirl sister #353

Lisa and Cheryl...you go girls! Fabulous work. The things I am working
on currently are for MJF Swaps so I can't show them off or I ruin the
surprise for others. Having fun though.

Everyone on here are so Inspiring!!! It is just fun to come check out as
often as possible.

CJ...I thought the same thing on the placement of the wire for Mail-Art
and also for regular size cards. Maybe we should skip the frames and just
run wire from floor to ceiling on wall of our homes. Ha Ha!

Hugs,

I am working hard to finish several Church Lady aprons. I love how it drapes across the knees. So pretty. It reminds me of my Grandma. I never tire of seeing someone wearing this apron pattern.

Cherime and Phyllis - Those earrings are so nice. Thanks for sharing photos.

CJ - saw your frame on another tread - very nice way to recycle a frame.

I also finished a quilling project that involved a 1924 vintage Valentine that belonged to my Grandmother. I quilled the top two corners to match the Valentine.

Heidi, I was just in Tehachapi a few days ago and am now at home in Washington State. Tehachapi is beautiful and my son and I had lunch at the Apple Shed. Delicious! The windmills were amazing to see. Now that I am home, I have to start getting creative again. Have several UFO's to finish and then on to new and more exciting quilts.

ATTN Quilters: Need a little input here. I've only made two quilts. The first one, when I got the top pieced, I sandwiched with batting and backing and did huge running stitches radiating from center to hold it together so I could machine quilt it. It worked OK but I had some puckers in my finished quilt. The second one I used some "fusable" batting that had been in my mom's closet for about a hundred years. It didn't work at all. The tractor quilt, (closeup pic attached) had a lot of shifting and bunching and I am pretty bummed. It's a kids quilt and I'll let it be, but I sure don't want this happening again. In your esteemed opinions, what is the best way to keep it all tight and flat while machine quilting? Thanks for your input!

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.

Love the rugs and the feather combs! Very nice!

Today, I am continuing to work on Christmas presents - dishcloths for Mom and a blanket for my brother's girlfriend.
