Jennifer...I posted my farmtable for the diningroom a while ago. My husband also built it and then I painted/stained the table. If you want to check it out, I can post it again. I guess I will just do it lol. First photo is unfinished, second photo is the finished table.

Joan...love both the tables!!! Lucky you to have a Wood Working Husband!

Jennifer...adorable Apron!! Feel free to make all the Gumball Machines you want.
I got the idea from CJ. and just thought they were sooooooo cute myself.

Kathryn...your doily is so beautiful. I can no long crochet tiny stitches like that
but because I have done them and know how much work they take...I give you and Bunny
Kodo's for the labor intensiveness of your gorgeous work, both of you are so good!

OK...more later!
Hugs,
Peggy

Thanks, Joan and Peggy.

Joan, those tables are just beautiful. How are the legs attached to the bottom? Did you build a "box" that your tabletop sits on and the legs are attached to the box? Those specifics are what I haven't gotten my mind wrapped around.

Jennifer, I will take a pic of the underside of the farmtable for you to see how it was built. When my hubby gets home from work today I will ask for specifics about how he did it. I saw him build it but (I guess I wasn't paying attention lol) Will get back to you.

Thank you ladies for the compliments on my doily,I love thread crochet,I just started actively crocheting and learning how to do doilies sometime around August,I was taught to crochet early by my Mother but never took to it until starting on some thread projects,my Mom always lamented that no one much crocheted with thread anymore and so I tried it and since taking to it she has swamped me with patterns,some quite old from the thirties and forties,I have more patterns and plans for making doilies than I will probably ever get done.
I am getting frustrated with the Wreath of Roses doily so am letting that one rest a little while in my workbasket.
The doily I have a picture of here is one I made some time ago,it's embroidered and then edged in crochet,the problem is that when I transferred it,the transfer was a half circle designed to be laid on the fold,well,I must have creased it too much because this doily now has a hard crease in the center that I cannot iron out,do you ladies know how to get a hard crease out of cotton muslin?
Bunny I love your crocheted flowers,they are beautiful,especially made in the multi-colors,they are stunning!

Kathryn, I love your doily too. I'm just now starting to work a lot with the crochet thread too. I've been crocheting dishcloths and bookmarks. I hope to do a few doilies too.

Sheri your boxes are beautiful!

WONDERFUL WORK girls!!!

I had to go visit the chiropractor, get a tire fixed, get my car serviced, pay property taxes and such.
I didn't get much stitching & crafting done.
I did do a little bit of redecorating . . changed from Valentines Day to St. Patricks Day . . and Irish Tea Room.
Hopefully tomorrow!

Kathyrn,, would you be willing to share a copy of the pansys pattern. I would gladly pay for postage and copying. I have crocheted dishcloths and scrubbies, I would be willing to barter. This is so cute and would go in my guest bedroom.. Thanks,

Hi Jennifer: I got the info on the farmtable. I also took many photos of the underneath side of the table so you can see how my hubby built it. Do you want me to email the pics to you or post them here.

Jennifer.your apron turned out beautiful!
Joan ..the tables are awesome !!
I love to pop in and visit and see what everyone has been working on...I dont always leave a comment but all the creativity inspires me
I have been getting ready for a craft show Saturday and needed a very simple apron that even a child might be drawn to ..... something bright and colorful with my business name. The sewing machine chose to break this week ( of course )so my western appliqued one i wanted to make with horses was out......
But it turned out cute . Then i had to finish my hat .
I gotta run to wal mart and pick up another sewing machine next week ..cant do without it !

Hi Jennifer: I wanted to email you but it wouldn't take my photos...so I hope you don't mind it here.
Hubby said he made tapered legs then the apron. Mortise tenored into the legs. Corners 45 degrees cross member for strength. Then bolted into the corner of legs. I guess you can see what he's talking about in the photos.




We turned the table over to see underneath. If you have any questions, let me know.
