GREAT BOWL!!! My daughter has one she bought and it's way cool!
I have lots of magazines but I have sooooooo many other projects going that they aren't calling me to make them into bowls.

Penny, I just read your blog earlier. Love the bowl. I've seen baskets at Hobby Lobby, and thought to myself, "I'm sure I could make that." Very neat.

Today I am finishing up a set of pot holders for a family member. We had snow yesterday and school was closed. I had extra helpers (although I am sure they hated it, he he!) at cleaning house. I will have extra "play" time today because of it.

I've already been to the gym, made 4 of us pumpkin oatmeal, and have dinner in the crock pot - yay! Gotta love days like today.

Have a blessed day!

The bowl is just awsome. Did you have a pattern you followed with instructions, etc.? Likewise, lots of mags that I could be putting to good use.
Beautiful scarf Peggy. Was it very hard to do?

Peggy, I made one of those scarfs too. I love it. However, it is a big big for me around my neck. I feel a bit claustrophobic so I may have to give it away as a gift. I don't like a lot around my neck or tight shoes on my feet.

Penny...I love your bowl. That is way cool! I will have to check it out on your blog.

Annie and Janet...it is only 8 stitches each row. They key is keeping that slippery lace
on your needles. I found after dropping it twice and having to start all over (because I
couldn't tell where my stitches were in all that lacy mess)to work it down low in my lap.
Not as easy to lose it all that way. I will definately do more now that I have one under
my belt. That first night...I was ready to throw it all in the trash. Insead I just put it
away until my frustration was all over with. Which was smart because I had no problems last
night.

Bunny...I usually don't like warm scarves because I am always sooo hot. But a friend made me one for Christmas and I really liked the light-weightness of it.

Love and Hugs,
peg

Just finished crocheting an afghan from all my left over yarn. I had a big bag of yarns left over from other projects, so I just crocheted until I used them all up. Got that out of my way. Am trying to fisish some of my unfinished projects that are started and need to complete. Takes up so much room.

I just finished three more fairy doors. I am finding the clay way too addicting... I cannot put it down. Thanks everyone for sharing what you are working on. I always feel so inspired when I read everyone's comments.

Just finished another door. I wasn't sure about this one. I didn't like how the base came out at all. But I was happily surprised and I love how it came out.
Shelly, no, I didn't receive any emails from you. I sent you two emails and never heard back.(I'm guessing now that you didn't get them) I just assumed that you were'nt interested after all. If you still want the doors please let me know and I will get them out next week.

I'm making journals from old maps, scrap ribbon, and scrap wallpaper. Here is one of them. I'm still working on the inside. I'm using boarding passes and ticket jackets to embellish them. They are Christmas presents for a niece and 2 nephews. The boys journals will have a different trim on the outside.

Shelly, those are old canning jar lids. There use to be a glass insert that went under the lid. Look up old milk glass canning jars. You might find something there to help. sometimes it was milk glass and sometimes it was clear.
Here is a picture I found on the web. I typed in "vintage canning jar lids" Now we use a metal insert instead of the glass.



Love the fairy doors! And love the string quilt.
I haven't had much time to do any crocheting. Too much homework. But I get a break pretty soon for a whole week. I have so much to do. It is so much fun to see what everyone is working on. There is so much talent here!

This is just a huge Jar of Assorted Ribbon and Lace that I have...thought it was pretty.

Marcy...Hope one of those doors is for me *wink-Smile*
Loved the last one the best...but girlfriend are you ever talented!!!
You could start your own Fairy Door Business! Whoot - Whoot for Marcy.

CJ...your fabric all looks so pretty! You have such good taste in fabric
and put together with the fact that you are a Seamstress Extradonaire (sp)
no wonder your Aprons are so highly sought after and adored!

Kristina...cool travel journal. Stick a fancy ink pen with those and you could
sell a ton of those too. Such talented Farmgirls we have here!

Shelly...those are the most unique vintage canning lids I have ever seen.
It would be neat if you could buy a couple of the glass replacement parts
for the two you have.

Sunshine and Springtime,
peggy
