Hi Everyone, sorry I had not posted for a few days, we had to go away for the weekend. It was so beautiful outside, I just love to see the earth come to life.
As you know my black lab Brandy has been sick and we still do not know what is going on. We keep giving her the medicine the vet prescribed and it seems to be taking the swelling from her body, but she is still not acting like herself. She still has a red tint to her skin under her coat and her face and ears still swell up abit in the evenings. Her appetite is good - she eats everything she gets her paws on. Just have to take it a day at a time...
I learned that I won the giveaway Dan at Yesterday Once More was having. Thank you Dan, this is a wonderful surprise!!! And a generous giveaway. If you have never visited Dan's blog, go on over and check it out.
I have a few new craft things I have been working on:
This little farm cat turned out so nice. I purchased the pattern from Kentucky Primitives. The mice on the watermelon look so realistic, it's scary!!! I do not like mice, you know the real kind. We live in an old (100 yr) farmhouse so in the winter, we get quit a few of these little creatures in the house. Oh yeah, back to farm cat, he was made from muslin, then painted and primly stained with a coffee and cinnamon mixture. The watermelon is also painted muslin. The mice, I just used the coffee/vanilla/cinnamon stain on them which was perfect to get the realistic effect. I put one in each of my antique booths I rent and sold them for $16.95. I'm not sure if I will put them on Etsy, but if anyone is interested in purchasing a farm cat you can email me at email@example.com.
I have been doing a little doodling to come up with a chicken pattern cupboard tuck and this is the first one I have completed.
This little hen is made of painted muslin and is about 4 1/2" tall. I have a few more styles in the works and will share pics once they are complete. I will be selling them at my antique booths for $4.95 each, so if you are interested in purchasing a chicken cupboard tuck send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm still learning how to arrange and add things to my blog, you know knowledge can be a very deadly thing, especially when you think you know what your doing like me!!(lol) I tried to add a widget from Etsy on my blog last Thursday and my whole computer system crashed. I had to reboot and go back to an earlier time on my computer to restore it. Live and learn, that's my moto.
I hope everyone has a great week and thank you for reading my blog.
