Cherime...love the adorable baby quilts. Nice job!!!

Sheri...you are spinning my favorite colors. Do you sell your yarn?

Joan...love your salt box house. Your crafts lean more on the Primitive
side and I really like them! You should have no problem selling those.

Today I am armed with my new Guarilla Glue and I am fixing broken treasures.
Nobody dare get to close to me today lest they end up glued to something. LOL

hugs,
peggy

Oh, Peg..I was in JoAnn's today. A woman was telling the cashier about the time she super glued her teeth together. Oh, my. She was trying to get the cap off with her teeth, and the glue oozed onto her teeth. She said her dentist couldn't stop laughing. (I think it sounds scary) So, be careful with that glue.

Finishing up crocheted roses for tea cozy tutorial, then it's on to my Creative Bloggers Got Talent competition item. Can't tell what it is (everything has to stay anonymous), but prayers for steady hands and nerves, and that it turns out looking as cool in real life as it does in my head, would be appreciated!

Mary, if you can't find the Northwoods transfer pattern at a store, you can go directly to Aunt Martha's website where she has every transfer pattern you could ask for. Plus towels, needles, cases, etc.
Shelly, I've been teaching myself how to do embroidery with the help of several books and web-sites and You-Tube videos. Start easy and small and you'll be on your way. Once I got started I couldn't put it down. Make a set of "days of the week" with pots, pans, etc. for DIL's B-Day this month and she loved them! My son wanted to actually hang them up for display and not use them at all he thought they were so good. You'll find lots of places on-line where you can get free patterns to print off as well. Even children's coloring books give you lots of options for simple and easy practice designs. You're going to have such fun learning. One nice thing is that you can always "un-do" a mistake with embroidery.

The clay bug has struck again and I am working on my little crtters.(as I call them) They sure are fun to make. I never know exactly how they are going to turn out as they are all done by hand and one of a kind.

Aw thanks Annie. I love the colonial/prim decorating. I am working on a coffee table for my keeping room. It's all custom made as you can tell from the photos. I will post more pics of it when completely done. This is fun!

I've been combing through some of my fabric collection and came across these pieced blocks and extras made back in the 30s or 40s. Decided I don't have another quilt left in me so have offered it in my sharnymcclarny etsy shop. If you're interested, please take a look. I also found a pile of flannel pieces I intend to offer to my neighbor who makes lap quilts for nursing homes.

I made my first diaper today! It's a "slot pocket" which I came up with so my husband's giant hands could actually stuff it :)

Here's a pic of front/back on the boy. It's totally huge. The next one will be smaller in the "small" setting. It's a larger scale one size. I think the next one should be much better :) Not too shabby for my second sewing project ever. I'm getting the hang of it :)

I love everything that is being posted. What beautiful work you all do.

I haven't been here too often, but the most recent project is crocheting thin dishcloths. I'll be back to post a photo when I have completed some.


I'm working on a few SCRAP projects and will post those later on my SCRAP blog. It may be a while before I do. We are once again suffering from allergies.

Hey girls..so I made a couple more birdhouses. I sell them for $12.00. So what I'm thinking is maybe starting a shop online. But the problem is all my products are made when ordered out of my home.I don't make anything in advance. Not sure how that will work. Any suggestions.

Hi Joan,

You can do all "Made to Order" on Etsy. Just post a photo of a sample, and folks can order from the display item, or request some customization.

You have all been soooooo busy I can hardly keep up with you! Beautiful ideas and items. Today I am finally sewing together granny squares for a UFO afghan. The color scheme is different shades of blue plus the same yarn Kim used in her mittens (on the left in her pic..very cool mitts btw). Then I want to crochet around the whole thing a couple of times. It will be good to have it finished. Tonight I will work more on heart yo-yo's for swap.

Cherime Love the wristlets. Do you have a pattern? I would love to give them a try. I'll have to start searching online to see what I can find. They are so elegant looking. Are you going to sell them at one of your craft shows?

So I decided to actually post my handcrafted quilt crane to see if it's good enough to be sold online. Solid pine wood that will last generations...a nice hand me down. Measurements are 18" long with a swing out arm that measures 30". Because it is custom made measurements will be slightly off (but not much). I sell them in my area for $125.00 but I am going to sell them online for only $80.00 including S&H. What do you all think?

Any color is available with a walnut or pecan stain over the paint.
