Happy Holidays!

The holiday season is certainly upon us! Hope all of you had a nice Thanksgiving. We had friends & family for dinner and had such a great time with everyone.
The weather here in Central Florida has stayed warm, but this week the temp will drop down in the 60's during the day & 40's at night....brrr. By the end of the week, it should warm back up in the 70's.
I thought I would show you some of the holiday crafts I have made & sold on Ebay. I hope to get many more done before the selling season is over.
Happy crafting everyone!

Rainy Saturday!

Rain rain go away! This is the second day of rain...about 3" so far & could get 6" to 8" by tomorrow! But a perfect day to stitch & blog, lol.

I have the last two fall candle mats listed on Ebay & have started working on C'mas. With the weather still warm here in Florida, it's hard to believe the holidays will be here soon.

Of course, I still have fall & everyday items listed on Etsy....check out both my sites.

'Til nextime....gotta get to stitchin'!
Have a great weekend!

Happy Wednesday!

Hope everyone had a good...and safe...Labor Day!
Time to think about fall coming, eventhough it will be quite warm here in Central Florida for another month or so. We have been far...during hurrican season. I continue my prayers for all those affected by Lee...hopefully Katie will not cause too many problems. There are more tropical depressions brewing....and the season lasts 'til Nov. Stay safe everyone!
Buster continues to discover so many new things.... I forgot what having a puppy around was like...seeing him discover new things...especially outside. This morning he was quite interested in the squirrel on the fence...thought he could catch it. He loves to chase butterflies & bugs & bring me "presents" sticks &weeds...he acts so proud when he drops them at my feet. I finally found a small frisbie & we have been playing with it out in the yard. He's learning to bring it back to me.....lots of fun! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I've enjoyed doing some cross stitching again & finished two pinkeeps. I also finished another pumpkin candle mat.....all are listed on Ebay right now. And I still have items listed in my Etsy shop...check them out.

Something New....

I just finished making these pumpkins....something a little different from other prims I have been making. They are about 5" & made from homespun fabric in fall colors. There are 4 pumpkins in each set & come tied with jute, with a rusty bell pinned on.
They can be used as coasters, candle mats, mug mats, or ornies/bowl fillers...lots of possibilities.
Check them out....I have a set listed on each one of my site....Ebay & Etsy.

Newest Member of the Family.....

Thought I would introduce you to Buster....the newest member of the family. He is a short-haired chihuahua....8 months old. And is he quite the little guy....6 lbs of mischief! He is busy most of the time....playing with his toys...playing outside....loves to fetch & play ball. But he's also a good sleeper when he tires himself out.
We had a yorkie...named Gizmo, but he passed away in the ripe old age of 16. He was such a good little dog & the best companion you could ever have. We were so sad when we lost him & decided we weren't going to get another dog.
Well....Ken's oldest son decided differently, lol, said his dad was lost without a dog. So for Father's Day, he gave him Buster....and we're glad he did. Who couldn't love a little guy with a face like that, lol. He has become another great companion & alot of fun to have around. Now if we can keep up with him will be another story, lol!

New Prim Listings

Whew....another very warm day with afternoon showers...a typical August day here in Central Florida! I love it here, much to do & lots of stores to shop in, lol.
I've been busy stitching...finished the pumpkin candle mat shown in the picture to the left. Also made the two pinkeeps shown in the pictures. All three are new designs of mine & are listed on Ebay....neat additions for fall decorating. I'm working on another new design for a fall candle mat...pumpkins & crows...hope to get it listed tomorrow.

Back to Blogging!!!

I can't believe it's been two years since I last posted in my blog!
My good friend, June, at Gammie's Primitive Attic just started a blog and it got me interested again.
So much has taken place in two years....we have made Florida our full-time home...sold the house in PA & visit that area for a short time in the summer.
We just got back from PA, where we attended a 60th birthday party picnic for my high school classmates & myself. It was alot of fun & enjoyed seeing everyone again!
We also went to my family reunion and spent time with some of my cousins....also enjoyed seeing everyone there.
My grandaughter, who is now 12, spent a couple weeks with us while we were there....she is growing up too fast!
I will be posting new pictures soon.
As far as my crafting....I have been designing & hand-stitching pRiM candle mats and hanging pillows/cupboard tucks. I plan on making some ornies/bowl fillers for the up-coming holidays.I am still selling on Ebay & Etsy, so click on the links at the bottom of the page to check them out.
