So busy playing catch-up

Hi Blog Friends,

Sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. I am still trying to get caught up with making crafts for my mall booths and I am now consigning some of my things with a flower and gift shop in Mt. Jackson, VA.

I am loving making things for the fall and am looking forward to doing Christmas crafts. Seems there’s just not enough time in the day to get all I plan to do done in a timely fashion….

The following pics are items that have been best sellers for me so far this season. Anything with pumpkins really. I can’t seem to make them fast enough, but I’m not complaining

Here are some new things I’m making.

 fall crafts 001

Primitive JOL Make-do, pattern by Olde Homestead Barn.  I used some old bench legs for the base on these guys. I just love how they turned out. Very Prim looking.

This is a pattern by Moonchilds Primitives.  A very easy pattern to work with and I used some of my bed springs as the base.   Sorry the pics are not very good.

fall crafts 005

This black cat is from a pattern by Snuggle Bug Prim Blessings. Very simple pattern to make.

You can click on any of the title names to go and visit there wonderful websites.

All these patterns were offered as free patterns by the designers and I am very appreciative for that as the cost of supplies is increasing every time I go to purchase things. The Ben Franklins store that has been in business for 73 years, were I get my bells, wire and embellishments from; is now going out of business and the Wal-Mart(s) around me are downsizing there crafts sections and the fabrics in two of the stores is being done away with completely. The other one is going to prepackaged fabrics. It’s really getting hard to find places to purchase craft supplies!!

Well, I have lots more crafts to get to, so until next time,

Prim Blessings,

Just a quick Hello....

Hi Blog Friends,
I just wanted to post a quick Hello and let you all know I am feeling better and working on some new items. Once I have them finished I'll post some pics for ya.  I am so behind on everything, loosing two weeks dealing with this infection, I wasn't able to do a thing and I hate just lying around. lol.

I started feeling better on Saturday and I had this old mattress I wanted to cut open to get the springs out of., so since it was a cool fall day I thought that would be the perfect thing to do. It took me both Saturday and Sunday to cut all the springs out. I did not realize they would be coiled together with wire, I thought they were tied with rope, silly me. It was a lot of work, but I know have about 270 bed springs. I may sell some of them if any one's interested. I'll have to get some pics together for ya.

Thanks to all of you for your sweet comments and concerns.
Gotta get back to sewing and painting. Post again soon.

Prim Blessings,
