Swap goodies from Sandy:

Good morning blog friends,

I had signed up for a swap over at Samantha’s Accessories and was partnered with Sandy from The Olde Country Cupboard. Sandy is such a sweet and talented lady. Just look at the goodies she sent!

A wonderful jar lamp Sandy put together and placed the Dry Goods label on. I love it! She makes these awesome feed sack pillows~ it’s filled with cedar chips! Love it too!


Sandy sent me two of these sleeping sheep ~ made of grungy wax.


Sandy and Samantha make the most wonderful tart candles. Each one smells soooooo goooood! I think my favorite is the Amish Quilt scent ~but really love them all.


Sandy also sent me this wonderful prim bowl with grungy eggs she purchased off the net.

Thank you Sandy for all the wonderful goodies! I had so much fun making goodies for this swap ~ I hope she likes the things I sent her~ they should get to her Monday.

I also want to thank Samantha for hosting the swap! I can’t wait to see what the other participants get from their partners.


My neighbor asked me to make a stitchery for her from a picture she found in a magazine so I thought I’d share a picture of what I did with you.

I stitched this design on flour sack material that has been heavily coffee stained. I used wool felt for the flowers and leaves. My neighbors husband is going to make the frame for it. I love how it turned out ~ it’s been a long time since I actually stitched something this big, measures 24” X 18”, but I guess it’s like riding a bike, you never forget how.

Thank you for stopping by to see my goings on.

Payers are being sent to the people in North Carolina and all that were affected by the devastating storms that came thru Saturday. Please keep them in your prayers too.

Blessings, Jean
