Cozynana, that's awesome! I might go out and start to turn over my garden this week, although we have more snow in our forecast for the weekend. Maybe I will sneak in some peas. . they like the cold at least.

Joanna, you are not the first person I have promised to post pictures for :) I will definitely do that. I finished the first scarf in about two days, but during the week it might take a little longer because of school. But I hope to have three done by the end of the weekend. That's still five days, so maybe I'll finish more!
God's Blessings,

Wow - I posted here once and then forgot to come back. Mommy brain.
So, I still have to make all the stuff I posted about in the first post! It's not been a productive week. :-)

Oh, but I did finish my boy's shirt - and he wore it for 3 days straight. I thought I was gonna have to unbutton it while he was sleeping! So here's my list for today:

New little dolly to add to my stock for the Farmers Market where I sell in the summer (actually, just her hair and dress are left)
Patchwork apron
Some clay stuff I need to get done.
Farmgirl tiered skirt. :-)

Today I'm working on putting the finishing touches on a doll for the rescue dolly swap. Then to get my "girls" packaged up and ready to go to their new homes. I've had like no motivation to do anything here lately. It is driving me crazy!

It's a rainy, stormy day here so I'll be working on cleaning out another closet and moving things to my storage building. If I could get all the grown children to take their things to their homes I would have tons of space. Oh well, maybe someday when I pull out a storage container it will be my stuff.

Judy, I agree with you about the grown children taking their stuff with them. My garage is full of DS #2 stuff, car parts, etc. I sometimes feel that if he were to take it all with him, I would miss having him around--sort of a deserted feeling. It's probably just me, but as long as I can get my vehicle in the garage, I'm sorta OK with it.

The boy's shirt, apron, and the beginning of the dolly I mentioned in an earlier post are now posted on my flickr page:

Still working on her hair and dress, but she's almost done. Started a new doll that will be all my own design, but I'm not sure if I'm gonna do clay or cloth for the head. This ones gonna be more of an art doll. She'll be a buxom gold rush girl. Maybe...if she agrees....

I am doing fabric inventory for my new fabric store. We had rearranged the bolts, so I need to update the fabric locations. Fun Huh? Not.

What AREN'T I working on right now??? I hate when I do this to myself but I have too many irons in the fire. LOL I'm knitting socks (always have a few pair on the needles), working on a wedding quilt, making a basket from fabric covered clothesline, and trying to set up my small weaving loom in hopes of starting a "rag rug" table runner. I'm also trying to work on a family tree scrapbook...and have a basket full of smaller projects I really want to get to. Too bad I have to sleep lol

LOL!!! I think we need many irons in the fire to keep our sanity!

I have been working on something uniquely different. . . Check out the "Marketplace" thread, under "Fairies are Farmgirls too"

Jean, I know the feeling. Today, I am sorting and putting some fabrics away. I have cut out aprons, but no time to sew them up right now. Not in my plans but my dh's plans.

I am trying to get a baby blanket done for my daughter's teacher. I don't know why I can't get it finished. Too many irons in the fire.

I have put out a plastic bin to fill with homemade Christmas gifts. I want to get the Homemade Christmas merit badge. I have started a scarf in Christmas colors. I plan to make ornies too. Most of my gifts will be sent to Ohio to my family members.
