Stash tea sells the empty tea bags on line too. Today I transplanted lettuce starts - about 48 so far and still have another 24 to do but they aren't quite large enough yet. So I am back to my spinning wheel!

With the opening of our Farmers Market less than a month away, my sewing machine is VERY, VERY busy cranking out aprons of every description. Finished several "flounce" style bibs this week, cut out several children's aprons and today have been making an assortment of hotpads and potholders.
In the pic the bright colored floral ones won't have the loop on them. Those that look like vintage fruit/vegetable crate labels do have rick-rack and button loops. The oval one in front is a sample of the little ones you can use to grab handles. The little mitt shaped one is an accident . . . but it's opened up a plethora of ideas that I'm going to be pursuing.
Using Insul-bright and Warm & Natural inside. We love the samples I've made for ourselves!
Thanks for letting me share!

CJ, you are so busy. That is good, but try to have some you time also. Stop and enjoy a cup of tea and get refreshed in between. Your aprons are so beautiful, everyone wants one!!!

It's not what I am working on today, but I've made a few more pin cushions to sell at the Farmer's Market. Hubby is trying to get me to keep the chicken one.

I've made several "Layer Cake" waist aprons in the past but a farmgirl ordered a bib style she wants to give as a gift.
So, this is how my "Layer Cake" bib turned out. (It's kinda hard to see them but there are two crocheted lace edge pockets on there as well).



Also busy making more and more aprons of my other styles for Farmers Market and a couple restaurants that are selling them.

Sew! Sew! Sew!

I simply must say wow to everything the farmgirls are creating. I made a jean skirt today but it has to go on the back burner, I don't have a zipper to finish it. But here is the latest for my DS, he does have a pair of matching shoes in the works too.

Today I haven't worked on anything. Went to church and talked to my cousin about our trip tuesday. Saturday I planted my tomato plants and worked in the garden. Picked some strawberries and want to make some jam. I will probably have enough next week to do some.

Sounds like you girls are busy. Cj hope your farmers market goes well, and you sell everything.
You have been as busy as a bee.

Well hope everyone had a nice Mother's day. Hugs, Juanita farmsister #1020

I am making a crocheted flower basket necklace as a "peace offering" for MIL so hopefully she'll be on my side for a while.

That, and I have felt like doing tiny work for a while and this was all that came to me.

Well, other than gardening, flower gardening, upkeep, and house chores, I've been preparing for another Farmer's Market. The theme is "flower power" so I have several new items in my "store" (you can click on that link to see pics).

Yesterday, I took time to iron on more MJF transfers - 2 shirts and 3 bandanas (for our next camping weekend).

Hey girls,

I am working on another apron for my daughter this time. It is going together so fast I might get it done today. I'll put pic. on when I get it done.

Kristina, I love the chichen pin cushion, I agree you should keep it!!

Emily, Your sons outfit is just about as cute as your son. Keep up the good work.

CJ, I just don't have the words to say how beautiful all your work is.

I wish all of you girls, that are going to Farmers Mkts good luck, I am sure you will all have a good turn over on all of your products!!

Take Care

I'm working on drink/pitcher covers. I'll have photos soon.

CJ, my 15 yo wore her yellow cake layer apron at the Farmer's Market - got lots of oohs and aahs! They want your web site address now.

I am cutting t shirt fabric into strips to finish a rug I have been crocheting. I can only do so much of it at a time because it is hard on my hands crocheting that thick on a big hook. I might have it all done by the end of summer, but will have other projects finished in the mean time.

I treated myself to some yarn today (have been on a "yarn diet" for almost two years). I want to make Ric some new socks because he says my handmade socks are the most comfortable he has ever worn.

Now, I just need the energy to do it!

I have been sewing skirts for my DD and I left and right, I just located a box of zippers so expect many posts from me. But here is a little dress I whipped up to my DD today, it is unlined and seersucker, she loves to run and gets so hot and sticky with poly linings.
