I wanted to make something different in the clay, so I made this little bunny. I think she came out quite cute.

I am creating an embroidery design in my embroidery software for a clock face. I plan to embroider on muslin with interfacing.

I noticed the clock I pulled out of storage in the garage had a cardboard face which got warped due to moisture in the air. I thought it would be a good opportunity to show off my embroidery. I am a little worried about two things -

a. What to use as a stiffener behind the muslin when mounting in the clock?
b. How to pull the hands off the clock to install the new face, and still be able to get them back on without destroying the clock.

Cute stuff everyone. Love the skirt!

For once (and probably only once - ha ha!) I'm not working on anything today, but packing a suitcase. Yeehaw! I just got my shorts on and crawled around in the grass to find my oldest daughter's lost (childhood) necklace.

Have a blessed day!

Adorable Phyllis!

Here was my project on this rainy day. I made a bonnet for my little boy. I love to have him outside with me while I garden, but the sun is too much for his delicate skin.


I discovered a bretheran fabric store and I am officially addicted.

Back to the sewing machine and cranking out "Farm Fresh Aprons".
Finished an order for 9 for one customer today and 2 orders of one for two other customers.
These pics are "samples" of some of just a few of them.

This is actually 2 different aprons, similar style.

Good Morning Farmgirls! I have not been able to check this thread in a long time due to a family member's illness, a sewing class I was taking in NYC at FIT, and the launch of my new business CREATIVE LIVING~Vintage Home, but I am always inspired when I do check back. You are all so creative and inspiring. I love this thread! Keep up the good work. Dianne in the Hudson Valley

I finally got back to the "wristers" I started for myself; I actually like how they are turning out now.
