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.

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!!!

That is so cute! I was wondering when I read your post earlier.

Today I have been learning to solder. Definitely need some practice, but it went okay. At least I've used the iron now and won't be scared of it anymore! :)

Shelly- The mouse is too adorable!
Such creative farmgirls we have...I'm wishing some of your creativity will rub off on me if I keep visiting this thread enough...LOL.
Thanks for sharing!

Am finally back to sewing Lizzie Purses. Made two new patterns. The orange floral is quite large as it is 15" wide and 11" tall not counting the handle. Some of my clients wanted a larger purse.

OK, I'm ready-Let's go.

Susan,Love the handbags!! Glad to see you back at the sewing machine again.
CJ, Redwork is one of my favorite hand embroidery styles. The two pillows look so cute together.
Shelly, the mouse is darling. It would be cute to tuck some of these here and there around the house just for the fun of it. The tea wallet is a super idea and looks great!
Still working on my bohemian owl handbag here, and making good progress.

I love all the beautiful creations... Havent had a chance to come visit for a bit .I always am so inspired when i see everyones work. I am working on chicken necklaces and vintage image ones of horses It is cold this morning and I dearly want to go back to bed. Bonne made me some knitted slippers so I can keep my footsies warm and snuggly. I have gave up on knitting ...just not able to use the 2 hooks.
I finally got the teal jewelry boxes in that i ordered and i have been painting simple horses on them adn then my business caxrd i glue on bottom of the box .

Love the pin cushions, purses and necklaces - so much talent here.

I am finishing up heart note cards, made from wallpaper and cardstock, for my mother. Today I will be knitting or writing (hopefully both). More pictures of cards are on my "pioneer" blog.
