Today I am putting together a quilt top for my nephew and his wife as a wedding gift. They were married in a small ceremony in California in late September. In September 2022 they hope to have a larger celebration when COVID has hopefully calmed down.

Farmgirl hugs,

April, your pin cushion is perfect! What a great way to repurpose.

Julie, oh my goodness! The pink one is perfect for Everleigh! Where did you get the pattern? I need to make her one.

April - Love the pin cushion. You should have joined the feedsack swap! I'm pretty sure sewing machines don't work properly if you don't swear at them once in a while. I'm kidding, but mine has heard a few choice words LOL! With as creative as you are I'm sure you would be a wonderful partner for the swap. Give it a try next time around.

Julie - those pillows are so cute! I bet your granddaughters are going to love them.

Linda - it amazes me how fast you put together quilts! Can't wait to see the one you're working on now.


I made 2 Scooby Doo aprons and 2 little pillows for my nephews but the pictures are not uploaded to the computer yet. I'll have to show you next time :)

I don't have a pattern. I have an old Christmas apron I found at a garage sale for a quarter that my niece (who is turning 13 this month) wore when she was little. I just laid it on top of the fabric and cut it a little bigger so I could fold under the edges to finish them. They might be a little bit big right now, but they should last a little while that way LOL!

Grace - I have some Scooby stamps in my drawer also :)

Going to have to find my child's pattern one of the farm girls sent me. Forgot all about it until after I wrote that Heather. Need to get some more made for the littles.

Krista - that would have been a great idea! But, no I didn't think of that. They're just a regular pillows with 2 different fabrics on one side. One of my nieces asked me to make her brother a pillow because he keeps stealing hers LOL!

Keeping busy while hubby was watching the Pro-Bowl on TV
So here is what I made..


I was digging through my fabric stash and found this remnant... So I made a pot holder and 2 wine booties/mug rugs.
Now to stop playing and figure out what to make for dinner!

I made an "unintended Potholder" yesterday. Yep. I was working on a padded basket and when it was done I realized I must have hit the hoop during stitching as it was about half an inch catawampus from top to bottom. Disgusted, I was about to trash it when it dawned on me that I could just cut it down and do a decorative stitch on the edges and call it a potholder -- for me anyway, as it's not fit for gifting. LOL. I'm sure no one else does things like that, so I thought I'd share my experience with y'all. Hoping for better luck today, I remain hugfully yours,
jean

. These will be my made over curtains for my kitchen. New was so expensive. And we donít have a decent fabric store close. So I checked out curtain ideas and added two strips of material and walaaa. I love them. They look like new.
