Many of you know Leslie from My Country Home started Watcha Working on Wednesday awhile back and of course I jumped on board. By doing this it makes me keep moving on stuff and being creative. I find it hard to motivate myself sometimes so she does it for me. I like to plan ahead and decide what I'm going to do the next week. Many of you know I have been working on "stuff" to put on my website. I hate calling it "stuff", but what else can I use... primitive needfuls, junk to some, things, ...oh I don't know. Oh I know how about dirt prim grungy needfuls YOU have to have for your home. LOL. I find myself going a bit of a different direction with my creations recently. I really do like what I am evolving into. Anyway, enough of the blabber here's what I've been working on....
I love corn cob dolls....
My table mat... I'd call it a candle mat, but it's a bit big for that. Anyway are the leaves fabulous. They are actually crunchy like real leaves. Not sure if I can part with this but you never know.
Of course a prairie doll with a pumpkin just for the season.
I decided to try a prim towel. I added a fabric loop on the back to hang it from.
A close up of the fabric patch I added.
My favorite things to make.... I LOVE LOVE LOVE oh did I say LOVE to make aprons and bonnets. Of course these are my own pattern and each one is different. I have made a few just out of muslin for myself that are hanging in my kitchen. This one is a dark blue...
Brown and tan obviously...
And of course light blue... I know they aren't fallish but hey I leave them up year round.
I tried a couple pumpkins... this pic was taken this am in the dark because I didn't want to turn the light on to take the pic cuz hubby fell asleep on the couch.
Last but not least another girl scarecrow. I don't remember who commented on my last one that they had never seen a girl scarecrow... so that was it I wanted to be different so I created another one. I want to create things that you don't see anywhere else. You can't see too well but she has on red pantaloons under her dress. She turned out so adorable. Sorry sooooo prim. LOL
So there you have it what I've been working on. I told you not to go get yourself worked up. I, however, am very excited about my creations. I would love to be able to get these on my website on Thursday at some point. We'll see how things go between now and then.
I am in the beginning stages of thinking about my 100th post giveaway. Yeah yeah I know that is like 20 some posts away, but I want to make it a good one. I am trying to decide what will people want for FREE (bwaaaaahaaaaahaaaaa) so I'm trying to laugh like I'm spooky LOL. Did you get that??? Hmmm.... twenty some posts will be near my birthday too. Boy there are going to be some lucky people out there. What to do what to do... guess you'll all have to wait til closer.
Now I'm gonna embarrass someone who reads my blog I think. I like looking at my Feedit Live thing to see where people are coming from to read my blog. The other day I noticed someone from my hometown was here. Now I won't tell you the town name, but the person will know by the next few comments I make. This town holds the annual Blue Tip parade in June, you have the Ella Everhard library, ummm... Casa Del Rio restaurant, and Thurbers Jewelry store is there. hehe if they read this they are gonna be like wha..... if this is you please leave a comment or email me. My parents still live there. Don't you just love calling people out. LOL. They are probably like hey I just want to be a lurker I can't believe she just did that. Well, if you haven't read my blog from the beginning yep I'm like that. I see everything just like I tell my kids... I have eyes everywhere.... LOL. Please don't be shy and not leave a comment I don't bite really.... I love meeting new people. Everyone here is just one big happy family... Are you humming Kum Ba Yah yet???? Well if you weren't thinking I was crazy before you really are now!!!!
