Laundry, laundry and oh did I mention laundry!!!!!!! I am going to start cutting out the peices for the messenger bag I am going to make my mom for mothers day. I still need to get the zippers and the magnetic snap but with this crazy icy weather I am not leaving the house.

Kathryn, my grandmother used to get the piece very wet then plaster it onto the fridge door where it stuck easily because it was wet. She would let it dry there and most of the time that took out the wrinkles and creases.
Sheri. Lovely work. I like working with wood myself.

Thank you for the ideas gals,I will try your ideas to get that crease out,that transfer is so old that I had to really go over it alot with the iron so it set that fold in pretty tight. Linda I would be happy to send you a copy of the transfer and then you could trace a transfer of it with an Aunt Martha transfer pencil or use whatever method works for you.The transfer is quite old and brittle so I will make you the best copy I can it is a really sweet design I'm making another one in burgundy and pinks. Message me your address and I will send it out right away.

I make baby books (or other memory book types) and occasionally I make one for my daughter to give as a gift to a co-worker.
Just finished this one for her for gifting.

Thank you bunches, Joan. I appreciate it!

Lisa, I love your hat. Did you make that for yourself or as a gift? I think it is a special treat, either way.

CJ, that book is just too cute. What a treasured gift that will be!

All you ladies are so talented!!!! I just finished knitting some mug cozies with crocheted flowers, hoping to get them on Etsy soon. Then I "practiced" spinning yarn. I cannot get the hang of it and got frustrated, so quit for today. Will try again next week. Hard when all I have is a book to go by. I had better learn, since I bought the spinning wheel, plus hundreds od dollars on roving, which I have crates full. I guess it will just take time to get it right.

Wow ladies, your flowers, doilies, clipboards, furniture, etc are beautiful and inspiring! I'm taking a break from crafting right now. Have lots of other things that need to be done around the house and I am also working on a community auction coming up later this month. Doesn't leave time for fun stuff but I can still daydream about it!

Cheers! ~ Marilyn

CJ you are so creative. Your Baby Book is so sweet and adorable. If I was a baby I would want that to be my baby book. Seriously, As a mother I would love to receive that as my child's Baby book.

Meeting my farmgirl friend for breakfast this morning along with our daughters. We like to have a mother/daughter day once a month. After breakfast we plan to do some serious thrift stores. Always a fun time when the four of us get together.

Melody...don't you love hand-knit wash clothes? I never get tired of making them.
I love to try new patterns all the time too. I found a pattern book that makes
larger washclothes than the standard size. Instead of casting on 34 to 35 stitches
this one uses 44 stitchess. The book is called Knifty Knit Dishclothes by Leisure Arts
and has 16 patterns. #3122

blessings,
peggy

I suffer from a grand case of start-itis so I have more projects that perhaps I should on my knitting needles. My simple project is a sock. I've knit so many of them that I don't need to use a pattern. I have a slightly more difficult project going that is a Ruana (think a sweater but with the side not sewn up. That project is about 2/3's done. I've also got a shawl that I'm knitting out of my handspun. Its going along fairly well but the main body of it is a repeat of just two rows and is a bit boring to knit. I also spin my own yarn and weave but I don't have much going with either of those. I rejoined The Farmgirl Connection withthe hope of finding a bit of inspiration for my fiber arts again.

I just finished sewing a bunny rabbit doll that is 18" long and has a cute yellow satin dress to match her yellow sparkly inner ears and yellow button eyes. I made this for my granddaughter for her Easter basket.

Serious organization of storage of all the bias tapes, rick rack trims that I use for my apron making. Our son, Jeremy, was visiting and he helped me . . he's a neat freak anyway.
Boy is it nice to have that job done . . and neatly so!

CJ,
Thanks, think of you often. My daughter Laura Monroe's mom saw a pic of it on facebook and loves it. Can't wait for Easter so I can see the happy face on my granddaughter's face. It's nice that your son helped you witrh that big project. It took me a few hours none stop to straighten up my sewing stash. Talk to you later.

Just had to post these pics of my first bowl made from magazines, I'm so proud of it...I have to put on a clear coating and it will be finished. The first pic is what it looked like before I formed it into a bowl...I hope to put the how to's on my blog tomorrow.
