Busy, busy, busy:

Hi Blog Friends!

Sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve posted, but I really have been very busy trying to get a stock of winter items made. Time just keeps flying by and before we know it Christmas will be here.

With all the rain we’ve had I have also had to cut our grass twice a week for the last 5 weeks. Now that might not sound like a big deal, but it takes almost 3 hours out of the day to do, not that I mind, but it does cut into the crafting time.

I have been visiting my blog friends, and for some reason like a lot of you, I am having a hard time leaving comments on blogs. grrrrr. I have tried all the suggestions I’ve read but all I get is frustrated. So please know I am at least visiting. Eye rolling smile

Last Thursday, three of my friends from Maryland, Vickie, Cindy and Patsy, came to visit and we spend time going to some of the shops in my area. We went to the Woodstock Café and had the most delicious lunch. Vickie new the owner of the café, actually she and Patsy new him and reminisced about old school days. They were so thrilled to see each other. Well lunch was on the house and we even got the presidential tour of the café.  I so enjoyed the day and seeing old friends. Thank you Cindy, Vickie and Patsy for a beautiful day!

Well I said I’ve been busy and truly I have been. The following are pics of crafts I’ve completed so far, but I have piles of items yet to finish.


Inspired from the internet.

Love these stockings! I used some of the chocolate burlap Linda from Parkers Paradise traded me awhile back and they turned out so perfectly prim.

Snowman and gingerbreads also from a pattern by The Olde Country Cupboard.

Over the weekend I had the urge to do a stitchery, so I found this free pattern from the internet and stitched it up on aged cloth. I want to turn it into a pillow tuck. I love how it turned out. I have a blue fabric to use for the back and think it will set the stitchery off.


Well, I gotta get back to sewing and truly appreciate you stopping by to see what I’ve been up to lately.

Wishing you all a wonder Autumn week filled with pleasant things!

Blessings, Jean

  2. So good to know you've just been busy as a bee! I was about to send out the troops since I hadn't seen you surface for a while!!! LOVE the pilgrims and the turkey is so darn cute. I've not seen all that much for Thanksgiving so this is great. All of your things are Jean.
    I've got to get back to creating myself. Haven't even posted half of what I've been making lately-not enough time!
    Take care.

    Busy isn't the word. Your doing crafts like Sherman went through Atlanta. You also use some of my favorite designers' patterns. Seriously, everything looks amazing from here. I'm partial to snowmen so I'd have to say I think they're terrific. I enjoyed the visit.

  16. WOW Jean you have been one busy lady, love all your handmades which are sure to sell out fast! You are putting me to shame as I haven't even cut anything out yet for christmas. Libby has been off school ill this last 2 days and I had intended on getting on with some sewing today, but she doesn't like me to go in the workroom when she is feeling unwell. She is back at school tomorrow and I can hopefully get cracking on some sewing!

    Have a great week,

  17. Jean, it is so good to hear from you. Everything is so prim perfect. I just love it all. The stockings are darling. I'm so glad you found a use for the burlap.
    A day out with the girls sounds like the best part of your week!
