thanks so much ladies, i am feeling so great and i really think getting back to my crafting has helped so much.
and also come back here. my cancer diagnosis was about 3 years ago, and i got so tired of it sometimes, i was just sick and tired of being sick and tired.
i finally feel that i am on the journey back to health.
i am so dingy, peg , but i thought you lived in texas.
also kim what part of texas are you in?
thanks so much for responding to my post!

love

Kim, cute piece for a swap
Frannie, love the pin cushions and apron!

Today we cut wood, baked pumpkin muffins and did laundry. I hope to get some crocheting done later tonight.

Hi Frannie, Glad you're feeling better. Creating things seems to help during recovery. I did a lot of cross stitch and hand stitching in general when I broke my leg several years ago.

I'm just north of Houston in Humble area.

I SO have to get some pictures posted! Last night I finished the hat I was making (the Mister is thrilled because he wants to take me out for Valentine's Day). The glue should be dry by the time I get home from work, and then I can photograph it.

Sharon,
Your ATC should arrive really soon . . it's not St Patrick's day themed.
It is very special for a very special farmgirl friend . . . YOU!

Frannie, I'm not familiar with the ATC swaps either, but the pieces are sure nice.

Today, it's snowing finally.

I just finished a pair of crocheted mittens for my 10 yo and started braiding a rag rug.

I just finished making my first Tea-Wallet! I am slowly getting the hang of my sewing machine. Going to make another apron either today or tomorrow.

Finished these two pillows today. The embroidered one is a cover that was actually made by our own Miss Wilma and was gifted to me by Laurie as a RAOK gift. I finished it into a pillow! LOVE IT! THANKS LAURIE!

The little one I finished with the hooked top I found at a thrift store for 25 cents! It was complete and took someone HOURS to do! I handwashed it, used some upholstery type piping and red wide wale corduroy, stuffed with polyfill and now I have this cute little accent pillow.

I think the two of them go together quite nicely!!
And, I think that when I go "glamping" they can go with me!!!
