Now that my swap partner has received her Valentine pincushion, I can post a photo of it without ruining the surprise for Madeline (aka Fille de Ferme). It was modeled after the girls, my 6 barred rock hens. I wanted to make it so it looked like she was wearing a little embroidered apron, like true FarmGirl!

If I remember correctly, I think it is about 4, maybe 5 inches tall. I "winged it" (pardon the pun) with my pattern based on some photos I saw online. I might try making a bigger one as a pillow or shelf-sitter type of decoration, but I'm afraid it would lose it's cute-ness, the bigger it got.

Finished these today
- "Petal" apron, custom order for a customer. Finished with some
yellow lacy trim.

- "Cat Clowder" Certified Farmgirl apron for my daughter.
sorry the pic of whole apron is fuzzy . .
Her favorite color is purple and the cats on this print are HER
cats!!!! Check out the note with the last pic.

Thanks for letting me share!
CJ









Robin has three cats, just like these. The black/white one is the only female, "Renegade". The tabby against the pillow is "Tiger" and the one with the Wide Load sign is "Stanley". Makes me laugh every time I look at this print!

Thanks Sharon,

And, just in case you girls want to know a "clowder" is, that is what you call a group of cats. :)

Well, I've just read through the last ten pages of this thread and must say you all are a talented bunch of farmgirls.

I'm working on a rag rug for another farmgirl, but I won't post pictures until she has received it.

I cannot master those things that I have not tried.

I finally finished my moms mothersday present! it was suppose to be for last year but my machine broke. But I am so excited to give it to her. I embroidered it and finished sewing it but then relized I forgot to put the button in the middle of the flower but I think it still looks great! I also put a homemade tag on it.

The pillow

Farmgirls, You are always a great source of inspiration to me. What a talented group of women who show their inner beauty through their creations! I have been so busy at my day job, putting the house back in order after the holidays and caring for various family members that I haven't had time to visit. Below is a slipcase I made for my sister's new Kindle Fire (ignore the date on the photo--I get tired of resetting it!). Dianne in the Hudson Valley

I finished the quilt and am going strong on the shawl.

I'm also working on cards for the year. I know with summer my time will be even more reduced with everything to do in the garden so I'm trying to get ahead. So far I've made a handful of birthday cards and some thank you cards.

Love it by the way.

Laurie,
Avery makes "Light Fabric Transfers" sheets. 8 1/2 x 11, 6 in a package and you can print two transfers on each sheet. I get the pkt. at Walmart in the section where the Avery labels and such are. Just download the transfer, cut it out and iron it on. Directions are included in the package. It also says on the package "Ink Jet" and the number "3271".
Just be sure you have NO STEAM in your iron and it is HOT.
It's easy!
CJ

P.S. You can also get "Dark Fabric Transfers" but haven't tried that yet. Because the only color you can print the transfer in is black you wouldn't want to try it on real dark fabric, but you might on some darker fabrics that black would still show up on. I did it on a red shirt for Robin and you can see the outline of the transfer material. Sometime I'm going to try the "dark" transfers on some of the darker fabric and see how it turns out.

Today I made 12 granny squares... trying to catch up for the 'granny square a day' challenge. Any of you gals doing that, too? I find the concept of crocheting an afghan to be slightly overwhelming, so this is a good pace for me. :)

This weekend I decided to research how to make crochet kitchen towel toppers. I found a lovely pattern on Ravelry and worked on it until I finally got it. The red one is the first one with too many scallops in the body of the dress, the white one is the second one and blue is the third. I plan to make these for birthday gifts this year and package them with a matching potholder. I'm finally making friends with the crochet hook!

Oh Kim those are sooooo cute. I have towel rings to crochet on my "to-do" list for gifting, but I loooooooove those! I'm on Ravelry, so I'll take a look later. Thanks for posting that!

Today, I am heading out to the doctor (again).
I'm taking a hand towel to work on that I have been crocheting for over a year now (tsk, tsk). I'm taking it in my tote bag with my "Farmgirl" transfer logo ironed on.

BTW, I have a plan to "save" the other tote bag I did....

I haven't sold much in my "store" but I have influenced many people to either learn to knit or crochet by simply taking my work along on trips, or by my posted finished project photographs.

Later today, I plan to either do more knitting or crocheting. I have two blankets I am continuing to work on that will be used for camping.

My ornaments have been coming along nicely, so I have another re-purpose project I am 1/2 done with (using an old egg beater).

My list of unfinished projects continues....and yet I continue to add to it - LOL!

Hi Kristina - the pattern is listed as "dress towel holder". She also has a dress potholder too. That will be my next experiment. Just need to get some rings first.
