I'm working on putting together blank cards with my photography on the front. I plan to add these to my store, sell at the Farmer's Market, and possibly open an etsy shop too.



I am also working on getting my dd's graduation announcements made using a photo I also took. I'm having a lot of fun with photography today. I have to let dd look the announcement over before I make more. Taking her senior pictures myself saved us a ton of money, and she is getting pictures she creates and loves (with her horse, dog, outside etc).

Then I need to get back to knitting a dishcloth for the Farmer's Market.

Catching up on old projects and, now that I have figured out how to post pictures here, showing off a bit.

These are the handkerchiefs I made Ric for Valntine's Day. The hoop works, thank you!

Farmgirls Got Talent!!! No doubt about it! Hey, CJ got the box of fabric yesterday! Thanks
Sis...I am so blessed by you! I also love your Fairies and Magical Folk!!!! Very Charming! I love all things Fairies!

Kristina...love your photography note-cards. I did that years ago and sold them too. People will buy them from your store...no doubt about it. I sold out all of mine. Also, I did 200 Inspirational Journals...where I incorporated my photography, poetry, and of course lined journal pages. I sold out of those too. Just another idea for you with your photography.

Alyce...adorable little hankies!

Still working on YoYo's and Granny Squares!

blessings,
Peggy

I just finished this rug. I sold a few at my last show, so I'm trying to get them built up again.

Phillis I love the rug. I'm in the process of making on with Aunt Philly's toothbrush pattern. I think it is going to be easier than crochet. What part of Oregon are you in? I'm in The Dalles. I would love to find someone close.

I finished this 'trailer' pillow a few days befor my 'Trailer Slumber Party....

the inside of Cori's trailer is done in browns & blues... so I was thrilled to discover a had a bit of fabric in blu/bro in my stash to use on the pillow. I hand stitched the trailer and used my machine to embroider Cori's name & SOTF (sister o/t fly) number.
The blue tray, was an aluminum tray that I found at the local Thrift, to which I purchased, brought home & spray painted.... it too went to Cori, for her trailer. Gotta luv a good can of spray paint!

I have just finished 4 needle-felted mug rugs. Bought a book on felting today for $1.00! Can't wait to try some of the patterns.

I just finished filling tea bags, 150 of them. Now am working on some coffee one, which are nice for individual cups of coffee. My hubby uses them for work. Now back to my knitting, working on some table runners.

How do you fill tea bags? Can you actually buy empty ones to fill?

Phyllis,I found empty tea bags on Ebay that you fill yourself and iron them closed. I got the idea from another farmgirl (Ginny) (Oggie) that grows her own herbs and makes her own teas. They are fabulous. She sent me some for my birthday and it was so good. I had alot of different kinds of loose tea and wanted to put them in bags to make them more portable.

I have lots of loose teas that I would love to put in bags. I think I need to see if I can find tea bags.

Janet! Thank you so much for sharing this. My 15 yo dd just asked if we could make those for the Farmer's Market, but I would like to make my own. I could take them camping/glamping and on road trips too.

Boy...I learn so much from here.

I'm working on items for the Farmer's Market. I have to say, I never realized how much work this would be. Maybe it seems like more, because I have a large family to care for (and animals). I better get back to work....only one day to finish making my herb drying racks and knitted dishcloths.

Diana...love your beautiful guilts. I know two girls who will be crazy for them too!

Janet...love that tea-bag Idea too!!!! Don't know if I would do that...but you never know,
it's one of those things to keep in the back of your mind just in case. Thanks for
sharing!

blessings,

Hi Farm sisters Today I planted some green beans and I found 4 volunteers tomatoes plants and have no Idea what kind they are, but hate to see them go to the ompost pile. I planted them in my garden. I have been working on the garden and trying to get the yard good looking for the summer, I love flowers and herbs so I will do some more planting. Oh I did start a sour bread starter on Tuesday. Baked a cake this morning for a friends house, we are going to a cook out. Thats about it for the day. Hugs Farmsister #1020 Juanita

Thanks Janet, I was going to ask Ginny how to do it but now I know. I have so much loose tea and want to make tea bags. Gee, you really made a lot. The coffee bags sound really neat, too.

I just finished a baby quilt for my niece who is expecting a baby in July. I am still working on a mystery quilt at my sewing group.

Hugs,
