I am working on Embroidering Flour Sack Towels, Northwoods Lodge Patterns, Bears, Moose, Deer, Ducks, Fish and Cabins, they are all so outdoors and what life should be like living in "A Cabin in the Woods", my dream. I am doing the Embroidery in Red, Blue and Green Work to make them different.
I love everyone's creations and want to buy it all"-) We have such talented ladies.
Happy Valentine's Day Ladies.
Farmgirl Hugs,
Deb

Joann, how wonderful that you have found your A-frame Cabin in the Woods to retire to, I bet it is beautiful. The Northwood Lodge Patterns will be perfect for you home.
Thank you for telling me about your cabin. Pictures?
Farmgirl Hugs,
Deb

I made a trip to Jo-Ann Fabric today and found a lot of awesome remanents for really cheap! I also found a yo-yo maker on sale for $1.97 (Regular $9.99) I bought one for myself and one for my Apron Swap partner. I am going to work on my bookmarks today and hopefully have them out in the mail tomorrow!

Debbie, I too am working on the same patterns - have two done so far. Making them for a friend from MI who comes and spends summers out here in the Black Hills. She would live out here in a heart beat if she could! We live on top of a mountain surrounded by lots of pine trees in a house of northwoods design and decore. Also built after DH got early retirement and we built our dream house.
So love all the wonderful work you all create. Gives so much inspiration.

No sewing or papercrafting or such going on here this week. We butchered a beef and have been up to our EARS in meat to cut up, package and get in the freezer AFTER we did a major clean out and clean up of ONE of our freezers. Still have about 1/2 of the beef to cut up and a 2nd freezer to clean out. Sooooo we're busy "puttin' away" and grateful for it.
By cleaning out the freezer that meant using some things that were in there needing to be used, such as cherries, apples and blackberries (all grown on the property).
Back to the "stitching 'n' crafting" soon . . .

I posted some new marquetry pictures on my blog today if anyone is interested. I have been putting in a lot of hours cutting veneer and also doing some spinning,working on some handpainted merino superwash. I love everyone's projects! I don't envy you meat cutting, CJ but the end results are oh so yummy! What did you make with all that fruit?

Blessings, Sheri

Sheri . . .thanks!
We are taking the day off to go out of town for the day. I made dump cake with some of the apples and pie cherries . . it was YUMMY!
2 bowls of ChillOver with some of the Dark cherries. Tomorrow it will be berry crisp with the blackberries. There is still more of all of the above in the freezer that will come out IF we need the room as we cut more meat. The meat cutting has been a BIG job, but like you say, very well worth it!
Your boxes are AMAZING!!!

Isn't cutting up all that meat a huge job CJ. We just finished doing one and I had to clean out 2 freezers also to get him all in there. Believe me, we ate some pretty funky meals for awhile to get everything used up. But it was so worth it! Enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Debbie, I love your flour sack towel embroidery! What a good idea to do them in all one color! It really brings out the accent colors on the towel. Can you tell me where you got the Northwoods Lodge patterns? I am just starting to do woodland animals for pillows.

Hi Mary, I got the towels and the Northwoods Lodge Patterns at Hobby Lobby, just wish I could find more of this type patterns as I just love them.
Let me know if you can not find the Patterns, I can pick up a packet for you the next time I go to Hobby Lobby.
Hugs,
Deb

I would love to learn to embroider. I dont have anyone in my family though that does it. I guess I could try to self-teach myself but that is not as much fun! Great job girls!

This is what I did today - it's so nice to sit and spin on such a pretty color when it's all dark and gray and cloudy.

I finally got descent pix of the baby blankets I make. They are made of fleece, with ribbon over the seams, satin blanket binding and cotton backing.
I taught myself to embroider. And doing stuff by your self is not as much fun as with someone else.

I finished some more crafts for Spring. The painted box is papermache. I drew the saltbox house, painted it then distressed it.

The hanging candle holder is made from wood, painted and also distressed with primitive candles that are bout 4" tall.
I can't wait for Spring to sell my crafts. Yay lol

Debbie, Thanks for the info and the offer! We don't have a Hobby Lobby in this area, but I will try Joanne's. They have an assortment of patterns, and I haven't checked them out for awhile. Worth a try! I just love seeing what everyone has been working on!
