Debbie - that would be the nice thing to do LOL But, no, I have two flag holders. One at the barn and one at the house. They're both for me :)

Karen - I just measured one of the Christmas flags I have and used the dimensions as a guide - no pattern. I did get the ribbon idea from pinterest. It doesn't hang very well if there's any wind though. Luckily I stitched it so I could hang it from the flag rather than the ribbon if I had to - I was worried about it breaking if the cats got a hold of it.

Krista - yes, they're like the garden flags you buy. Just a lot cheaper since I had everything on hand to make them!

Vanessa - what a pretty quilt block! I bet it looks great with the beads.

This is from the book we're using. There were two colorways, this is the darker one. The pastel version has a different border.

I needed a break from my crochet but wanted to still work on some UFOs, so Everleigh and I got out some diamond paintings and worked on those for awhile today. It was nice to change things up but I wish I had at least one project closer to completion so I could feel like I am getting things accomplished.

That's a very nice table square, Michele.

I've been working on making more items to sell at a booth at our church during a Womens Conference the end of April. Everything I sell at the Conference will go to help support my granddaughter's mission work; she will be leaving to return to her mission in about 1-1/2 months. She came home a couple weeks ago to be here for the birth of her new baby brother and to raise money to help her continue her missions work.

Today and for the next couple days I am making some new Dish Drainer Quilts to sell - 2 have John Deere tractors on one side and cowboys on the other, and 2 have words to Amazing Grace on one side and the words "Faith, Hope, Fiendship, Love" on the other. I'm also making some that have cows and chickens on opposite sides and others with very realistic fruit tabric. I think these will be great to brighten up farmgirl kitchens. When completed I'll post pictures here and also add to my things for sale in the Marketplace thread.

Farmgirl hugs,

Good luck with all that Linda. Alot of work. I do have two more that I am working on sewing bindings. I do all that by hand, not good enough to do by machine. I like the hand work in the evening.

Very nice table topper, Michele. It's very pretty.

Wow Linda! You are super busy! I hope you are able to sell them all to help your granddaughter out. I bet it means so much to her.

I like the dish drainer mats Linda. I should make myself a new one sometime. Good idea.

Oh, Vanessa, I adodre your Mouse and Cheese quilt. The colors are eye candy. I've never tried a Stack and Whack. You inspire me to give it a try.

The sides are a bit cut short because I was also practicing adding corner triangles. It is a practice quilt and will be given away for a child.

Audra, your sewing day at church looks like a blast was enjoyed!! Nothing like good eats and good company to make for a fun day. The mouse and cheese quilt has a neat pattern and I love the bright colors you used.
