Am I caught up yet?

some days just seem to be so busy around here! So much to do and so little time.  But, I do have some things done. I have just finished up a new pull toy, this one is a pig, but, I can not get a good picture yet. there is no sun!  I also have a cow just about done. this one just needs sanding and the finishing touches. So expect them to show up any day now!

I have also put all of my patterns on sale for only $3.00 for at leas the month of April. so would appreciate some shares to help get the word out!  Sales have been so slow for me that I  have to do something to boost them up a bit.  I think I did better last year as a new shop than I am this year so far.

so this is my shop link of you could help me share it!

Thanks everyone!

Until later, if the sun comes out I can at least get a picture of my pig!

busy busy busy!

Yes it has been a busy few days here. mostly on the computer trying to get things back together again. I am not very organized here and there. but I am all caught up now.

I did get my next pull toy done!  I also have the patterns written up and they are just about posted everywhere that I have my patterns listed, only one more site to go!

I have a few more idea on these pull toys. I really dont know if they will sell or not, but it is worth a try and I have fun making them. isnt that the idea? to have fun!

so enjoy my next little critter

Busy few days

Yes, I have been busy. I have been working on a new "line" for my shop.  I am trying to make primitive pull toys and Make'do's.  I have my first two sets done. I did a set of sheep pull toys, and then I have a set of crows sitting on some spools.  I also have one more in the works. which I should have done tomorrow!  Every thing has been so slow lately, that I really dont know what to do to boost my shop. so maybe these pull toys will work out.

but here are the pictures of what I got done.  nice and simple

Home again , Home again

Yes, I am home again already. those trips are to short!  But, at least I got away for a little bit.  My aunt had me out in the yard helping her clean up some. and yes, I AM TIRED!  I am so glad that I dont have all of those trees in my yard! wet leaves can get pretty heavy!

So, now I am back and ready to get back to creating again.  I have several ideas in my head that I really want to get to, but I still have to write up those patterns for those last sets of dolls that I did. Maybe later tonight I can get working on them.

In the meantime, the sun was out so I was able to take pictures of the  pumpkins that I did right before I left, and the watermelon bowl fillers.  hopefully just in time for summer decorating!

Now I still have plenty of time to get something done today!  I wonder what kind of trouble I can get into now!

Good Afternoon every one!

So, I decided that I needed a short break. I have come down to Nh to visit with my Aunt. It is only a short trip because I can not leave my husband for to long.  But I just had to get away!  It has been a long winter and I am soooooooooo tired of snow!

so my sewing machine is just going to have to be lonely for a few days.
I did get some watermelon bowl fillers all painted, now I know why I don't do more of them. they just take so long between painting to dry.   they still need a light sanding. but that will not take to long.

I also got a set of pumpkins done up. I use an orange home spun on them and used a cinnamon stick for he stem.  I just want to put a face of sorts on them and they will be done also.  Isn't it a shame that we have to be almost 2 seasons ahead! Her I am working on fall themes and the snow is not gone from this winter!

but I have a few ideas for some different things for me to do. I have some supplies all ordered and they should be at the post office by the time that I pick up my mail on Tuesday. so then I can get started.  I will keep you posted on what  have come up with!

Until tomorrow .........................

Landscape Quilt

Ok, so I just finished up this landscape today. it is a real simple folk art landscape. A bit different that what I usually do. I think that it came out pretty nice.  I really love making my landscapes.  there is no pattern to follow!  I can just do what ever comes to mind. And, I doubt that I could make a pattern out of them if I tried.  But this is it!

It is all 100% hand appliqued!  and for the quilting, I just used my machine and "outlined" each of the pieces. Nice and simple to do.
