I have been crocheting lately (bags_ and making bowls out of magazine pages....Some of the bags are College colors...My Aunt helped me by email today, and taught me how to redo some of the patterns to crochet the logos into the bags instead of putting them on afterwards...so nice to have an Aunt like that, and to think we haven't been in the same room together for over 40 years...lol bowl made from magazine pages crochet bagsHarley Davidson Colors Georgia Bulldogs Carolina GamecocksClemson Tigers purple and orange and Clemson Tigers Orange/white with purple tie

Oh I didn't mean to hit the button...lol Two more Carolina Gamecock bags, just smaller and different styleTN Vols....

I also want to show my very first Teddy Bear I made for a newborn baby and also a afghan I just started called a Never Ending Granny Square. It is suppose to have an odd number of colors but I couldn't find 3 that I like so I'm using just 2.

Thanks for letting me share...I haven't been crocheting past the beginner stage for very long so I'm very proud of myself for what I've learned to do these last few months... I have just learned to read patterns this year.

Wow! Emily, I love your work. When I was in my child nursing days, I had to spend top dollar to buy special dresses/tops. Your dress looks so comfortable too. I can't wait to get a skirt from you. It's inspiring me to work harder at the gym, and get the weight off.

Penny, I love your crochet work. Especially the one with the paw print. So neat. I love the teddy bear too. I have not made any toys with crochet work yet.

I am working away on items to sell at the Farmer's market. I'm afraid that I will be focusing more on my jellies than my crocheted items this year. However, I do have some finished items all ready to sell. I have a dd that is making quilled gift tags to sell too.

Today I have to spend the day time working in the garden and starting our first planting. Then we have to start the chicken coop project - tear down the "emergency" coop and make it much larger for more room for meat chicks. Then, if the weather holds, we have more yard work.

I hope to have time tonight, to finish some knitted dishcloths and finish up another crocheted lightweight "farmgirl" dishcloth.

Penny, your bowl looks great. I did these awhile back with junk mail. Here's one that I did using the leftover tape from a postage machine. After I constructed it, I painted the bowl and added some leftover wallpaper to the rim.

Penny and Phyllis...very impressed with those bowls girls. Phyllis...yours looks like and actual ceramic
bowl. Penny...also love all your crocheting...you really have been crafting up a storm girl.

I am kinda with CJ here...Wowsie!!! WOW!...everyones work is just stellar.

I am making a granny square...afghan/shawl. I just learned how to crochet granny squares. Made myself watch
a tutorial 3 times until I had it down. Like you Penny...I feel like I have accomplished something...because I am a better Knitter than Crocheter. This pattern I am making calls for 128 granny-squares...I want to make it last for my summer crafting project. So, I am making myself take it slowly.
My Bible Study group becomes a Summer Crafting Group for May, June, July and Aug. So for now... I crochet a little,
craft a little, knit a little... all in hopes of not sitting down and doing a 30 hr marathon...on this shawl/afghan
just so I can get it finished, which is what I much prefer doing. Ha Ha!

Have a Great Weekend Ladies!

blessings,
peggy

Penny and Phylis, that is so cool how you did that with the bowls, simply amazing!

Fields, I am still looking out for more of the denim, but no luck at this moment, sigh, the search continues on.

I haven't posted on here for a while, I don't think lol. Lovely projects that I saw - finished & unfinished!

Today I am attempting to make a dress for my friend for our Ladies Night. I have to adjust it a bit so it fits, so that's a little more work than what I bargained for, but I think it will be ok. My Mom is making mine at her place since she has to work this wknd. Mine is a dark purple and my friends is a spice brown kind of color - does that make sense? I will try to post pictures once they are done and/or when we are wearing them...

I am getting ready to attempt to recreate this:



for a friend of mine who's a Discworld fanatic.

It should be fairly easy- she has the patterns for the turtle and elephants for sale and I bought them - but I'll have to figure out the disc...

I was wondering the same thing.

The embroidery is great and those plaques are wonderful.

My 15 year old has been mixing up Goat's Milk Soap (first trial batch we thought was a goner, but it's looking nice already).

My 20 son is drawing more to put in his Etsy store.

My 12 year old is quilling gift tags to sell at the Farmer's Market

I'm canning jell, crocheting, knitting and now writing.

Tomorrow, however, I will be doing work on the truck. Someone has to do it. Now that I'm driving it, there must be a rear view mirror mounted and a new knob to turn on the windshield wipers (so I don't have to use pliers anymore). Then I just have to figure out how to fix the passenger window.

Kristina, what a busy bunch. As to the passenger window, you usually have to take the inside cover off of the door. If it just jumped the track you can probably put it back in and then wind the window up all the way and see if it needs some grease on the winder. Sometimes you have to replace the entire track or replace the door. Either of those two are a really big hassle. If it does not want to go up and down without dropping out again, you might just want to get it in position, jam the track up with a piece of wood that you secure to make sure it does not move, take off the winder handle and tape the whole thing shut. Been there and done that one.

Took a break from "apron-ing" yesterday and worked on ATCs and Tags.
Here are some "Fairies & Magical Folk" ATCs I made for a swap (not a Farmgirl Connection swap)

I love everyone's work. You are all so talented. I am working on a crocheted afghan with elvis on it in crochet for my sister's birthday in August. Good thing I have alot of time, cause I can only do a few rows a day without getting fatigued from all the counting and switching colors between black and white.
