Finished em’ up…

Hi Blog Friends,

Just wanted to show ya I finished the pile of crafts finally.

Remember these in a previous post?


Here’s the chickens all done! I had made one for Sandy when we did our swap last month and loved how it turned out so I made some to put in my selling booth and consignment shop.


Star bowl fillers all grungied up.


Love this sweet little Liberty Mouse! It was a free newsletter pattern from Kim at Old Road Primitives blog. It pays to sign up for newsletters cause ya never know when you’ll get something for free!

Then I seen on Tam’s blog ~A Primitive Place~ where she had made the cutest burlap bear. I have wanted one ever since I seen it, so I tried making me one and think he turned out really cute! He’s only 5” tall when sitting and I jointed his arms and legs. I left his foot pads raw edge out and added a few black stitches here and there. I still like Tam’s better, but this one will do for me.


Yesterday I took a bunch of my crafts over to the new shop in Stanley.  The name of the shop is LG Primitives.  They don’t have a website but it is on Facebook. Click the link to see pics Lory~ the owner~ has posted of the shop. I’m excited to see how my crafts will do there.

Last night I cut and traced a big pile of things to work on this week and hopefully get done. I found a pattern in one of my old Market Place books for an Uncle Sam doll, so its in the pile.

I also need to get outside and work in the garden and cut the grass again due to all the rain we’ve had the garden is slow in being put in and the grass grows overnight! Come July I’m sure I’ll be wishing for rain so I guess I shouldn’t complain to much now.

I want to wish all my followers a Happy Mother’s Day. Use the day to slow down and just enjoy your family.

Prim Blessings, Jean
