Oh wow.....ya'll are just amazing industrious women. Keep on doing what your doing.... It looks marvelous.

I am working on 56 Pay-It-Forward gifts that need to be finished and sent out by January 1st. Sure hope I make it. I have a wedding and 2 trips and of course Thanksgiving and Christmas in that time frame also. Then I'm quilting on my UFO's from New Year til Summer. Keep those project photos coming...you are inspiring me!!!

Hugs and prayers,

My quilt for a birthday/Christmas gift was finished a couple of weeks ago. Turned out pretty good if I do say so.

Thanks Farmgirl friends. That is the second quilt I made using that pattern. It is HUGE! Queen size. I think my DDIL will love it. I still have one more to make. My first was made with a black background and my son-in-law really liked it. My second is as you see it. My third will have a silver gray background. Will be glad to get it finished so I can start something new.

Juanita,

Yes, I have the stash overflow problem and no time to tackle it. I have yarn, crochet cotton, fabric, macramé cord, beads etc. If you want to downsize the stash of things you don't really need, bartering them for stuff you really do need. No money involved except for shipping and it is a win on both sides.

Juanita,
I HAD to do a major destashing in the past few months. Just feeling overwhelmed and it became necessary for my sanity! It took some effort to get started because I didn't where to start but I'm SOOOOOOOO glad I did and have been able to reclaim some of my house and actually SEE most of my supplies. I had so much stuff that I had had a long time and wasn't using. I make aprons to sell and had to just sew through and use up a lot of fabric . . . haven't purchased any since March and it's been nice to make some sense of it all.
Wishing you the best with your projects and endeavors!

I finished an order for a customer for curtain panels (AARRGGGHHHH), tablecloth and six placemats. SOOOOOOO glad to be done!!!

Then, I've also been cleaning out my "new" little glamper that just came to live at my house on Monday. So tickled to bring "REIVER'S REST" home for my daughter and me for our glamping adventures.

Just finished up with these. They took me a while to make but I really like how they came out. The book angel is my favorite as I am an absolute book nut.

I finally will have time this weekend to put a dent in my mending. The problem is that I have mixed the ironing with the mending so I will have to sort that out.

This weekend I will be volunteering at a Fixit Clinic. This is a county-wide program which sets up shop in various places and people volunteer their skills to fix whatever someone brings in and teach them how to do it themselves next time. I will be bringing my sewing machine, some material to make patches, thread and whatever tools I need to sew. Guess I'll have to bring an iron too.

Been watching Youtube videos on making mittens from old felted sweaters...looks like a fun, easy and inexpensive project and they are so adorable. Problem is I'm not that into mittens! I love the look but don't like not being able to have my finger dexterity so maybe I'll opt for some fingerless glove/arm warmers or something like that. On my way now to thrift store for some sweaters!

Fingerless gloves and wristlets are very popular now because of the wide use of cell phones, iPhones and pads.

Seeing the apron pattern, I can't believe we women had waists that looked so small. Mom always said that my 23 inch waist was impossible to maintain--she was right. It has bloomed.

Marcy, Your angels are so sweet!
What a great idea and wonderful service, Marie!
I love those handwarmers, Neeter! I'll have to make some. I already make handwarmers and what I call sleevies (for my elbows) but they sure aren't as pretty as those pictured.

I made this little cat and really like it.



But I think this is one of my favorites. You can't beat a teddy bear and his pony.

Marcy,

The word to describe your clay pieces: delightful : )

They are just so charming and really are full of delight. I admire your creativity and talent.

My best clay work was done around the age of maybe 6 when we all made the ubiquitous dish (used to be an ashy tray, right?) in art class at school. It has been downhill from there!

Love the idea of the wrist warmers from felted sweaters. I just happen to have some sweaters and my daughter wants wrist warmers. Hmmm.... Christmas present coming up.

Anita...love the wrist warmers!!

Marcy...your clay creations always amaze me.

Betty J...your quilt came out so pretty.

Judith...you don't look old enough to have great grandbabies. The pictures were all precious.
You have been very busy this summer. You amaze me being a Fibro girl that you get so much
accomplished.

Connie...did you say that table cloth was from your grandmother? It was so pretty. I only made one
small stitch crochet piece in my entire life and it was back when I was in my 20's and I made a
huge ripple round tv doily and never again did I ever attempt anything with such a small needle.
Probably why I have arthritis in my hands to this day. LOL

Everyone does such awesome work...love popping on here and checking it out. I am always lurking.

Love and Hugs,
Peggy

Ok still haven't figured this out where it will put the picture here but these are some of the snowflake wreaths I did while at the farm with old electrical fence webbing I found that had been pulled off the posts & dumped in a huge pile. since I love origami I thought since the webbing could be bend & shaped I could create something with it during the cold snowy winter....Michele'
