Good morning Blog Friends,
I promised I’d share some pics of the crafts I have been working on, so here they are.
Primitive Cat ~Oswald~ pattern by Olde Homestead Barn . This was such an easy, fun pattern to make. I love how he turned out! Perfect for Summer and Americana.
Sam the crow pattern also by Olde Homestead Barn . My boyfriend said ~he’s so ugly he’s cute! Well I love how this old crow turned out. He’s much grungier than the pic shows, I guess the flash makes it look none grungy. He even has rusty bells for his eyes!
Prim Lil Bee Skep~ pattern by Sassafras Hill Primitives. I love how these turned out! Again, they are more prim in person. The bees alone would make great bowl fillers. This is a great pattern for summer.
Making lots of star bowl fillers too. These sold very well last year and seem to sell all year long. They just get a little boring after awhile to make. I’m sure you all have items like that too.
Prairie doll tucks. I was at a shop a few weeks back with my sil Amy and seen a prairie doll that was made on a soda bottle and wanted to try making one for myself. Well so far I have not liked how it turned out so I used the bodies and made these tucks. I love how they turned out. I’m still working on getting the one on a bottle made to my liking.
Working on some Peahens ~ this is an old pattern from Barbara Stein that was published in the 2006 Country Marketplace magazine. They were originally to be made as make do’s but I like them as shelf sitters. Just need to finish them up!
I also have this pile of items to get finished. Sheep tucks, mice, and chickens, oh my! Sorry couldn’t resist.lol.
And finally a bag full of my sunflowers, waiting to be grungy. These also sell very well for me. The pattern is on my blog sidebar for free if you’d like to make some.
I have purchase quite a few new patterns from various designers and want to get started on them, but I should finish these up first. I have a bad habit of starting different things and stopping to make something else. I don’t know why it’s hard for me to stick to one craft and complete it before starting on another. I guess it’s the monotony of it all.
Well, that’s all I have to share for now. Gotta get these things done so I can move on to something new. At least I hope.lol.
Have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by to visit!
