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.

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!

Alyce,

If writing has hit, go with it. That is a craft in itself. What do you write?

Laurie, sometimes poetry, but mostly fantasy. This story has been brewing in my mind for YEARS, but I couldn't get it written--until I figured out that I was trying to use the wrong brother to narrate. (Story is about two coworkers who learn they are long-lost brothers, and one has to tell the other that they have a magical heritage.)

I started making a new hat for myself (years ago, I took a class from a master milliner and this is the first time since then I've used it!). Buckram is a pain to sew!

I also got out the hoop I got from wonderful Deb to make the Mister's Valentine present (handkerchiefs, one of which I'm making to coordinate with his new jacket).

Alyce, Good for you. Sounds interesting. I, too, am a fantasy writer.

That is a good breakthrough to realize you had the wrong narrator. It can be hard to change once you originally decide. Have you taken any writing classes or read lots of books? I started with stories about my classmates in 5th grade! Boy, have I learned a lot since then.

Good Luck,
Laurie

I finally finished it - phew!


Today, we are baking up Candy's zucchini muffins to take to my 12 yo's first recital (a duet), then working out at the gym, and then relaxing. I hope to work on a dishcloth and then tackle another unfinished project.

I guess I was lucky, Laurie, in that most of what I'd written with the wrong narrator was lost in a computer crash! I took several creative writing classes in high school and college, read piles of books on the subject--and since I'm a librarian, read a lot of books in general. ;)

5th grade! Wow! I'm impressed.
