My latest projects I have finished. The Primitive Crow Witch is a pattern by Kim Kohler of Veenas Mercantile. I have had this pattern for, gosh, I don't know how long now. I never could get the pattern to print right, and I think that put me off at the time for trying to make it. But I finally got it to print right, and think it turned out great. Not the easiest to pose though.
Is it too early to make Christmasy stuff? Maybe I will wait a little before I add this to my Etsy Shoppe. But this is Jack and Frost, a pattern by Blue Moon Beginnings.
Just finished making this last night - Autumn Ginger and pumpkin. It's a pattern by Chestnut Junction.
I wasn't sure if I was going to finish it because my sewing machine has been acting up. As far as I could tell, it was a tension problem. I haven't changed the tension setting at all and haven't had problems before, so not sure why it was acting up. I think it's ok for the moment. I changed the thread and it seems to be ok. Fingers crossed.
I tend to make things that go along with the American seasons, rather than Australian seasons. It's funny - I've been in Australia 18 1/2 years, and I still find it hard to have the winter season starting in June, and Christmas in summer, etc...
Anyway, I added my Harvest Pumpkin with crow and sunflower to Etsy. I have a few things to add soon as well.
The book hasn't been released yet, but it set to do so in July, and you can pre-order the book on Amazon. It looks like it would be a fun book to have, whether you're new to primitive crafting or have been crafting a long time. I don't really know anything more about it though.
Anyway, I just thought I would pass that on in case anyone else is interested.
Hi everyone! Just thought I would quickly post to say I haven't disappeared. I just have taken a little break. I'm hoping to get some new things made soon since I haven't made anything the past couple of months.
Today is my sweet daughter's 8th birthday. I have to get her cake made today, and I am hoping I can decorate it the way I have it pictured in my mind. I need to go buy some frosting though as the frosting pack that comes with the cake mix never seems to be enough. After I get back home and get the cake started, I need to clean the house, as my in-laws will be coming over for my daughter's birthday.
Honeybunch and Clarabelle - an extreme primitive pattern by Pineberry Lane. I had a lot of this made a while back, but then I lost some of the body parts, and had to make them again. I'm glad to have this all finished.
I made this from a pattern by Crooked River Mercantile. I've had the body made from quite some time, but decided to finally get it finished. I think it turned out pretty good. Will be going up in my Etsy shoppe.
A trio of Spring kitties. I think they turned out cute. I hope they will add a bit of cheer to someone's day! I chose not to coffee or tea stain them, although they might be ok tea stained. These are a Peppercorn Primitives original, and will be added to my Etsy shoppe shortly....
I am so excited! I can finally sell on Etsy! Since I am tired of waiting for my uploading program to be fixed, that I use to add things to my shoppe, I decided if I could sell on Etsy. I wasn't able to before because I don't have a credit card, and at the time, you needed one to be able to sell. But now you can sign up with using Paypal. So I am very happy. I think it will take some time getting used to all the features. There is a lot to take it!
Etsy link is added on the left sidebar. Seasonal things will be added for whatever season is around, if that makes sense. ;-)
This lil guy is made from a pattern by Blue Moon Beginnings. A little bunny and fabric egg (used a pattern by KKL Primitives for the egg) are tucked into the pocket, and a little fabric tag attached. Bunny is made to hang. Will be added to my shoppe soon. Have quite a few things to add!
Hettie Hare is a Chestnut Junction pattern. Thought I'd add one of my rusty bells since I just finished rusting up a bunch. I still can't upload to my shoppe yet, but Hettie will be added when I am able to do so.
While I was hunting for my rusty bells and tags, which I still haven't found, I came across something I had started making a while back. I'd forgotten all about it, so it was a nice surprise. Decided to finish it off and am happy to finally have finished. Will Rabbit and her Easter eggs. This is a pattern by Crows Roost Prims. This will be added to my shoppe soon.
So the hunt is on.... to find missing craft supplies. Somewhere I have some rusty pins and bells, and some tags, and I can't for the life of me think where I've put them. I've just been through my computer/craft room, and they aren't here. I don't think I would have taken them out of this room because it's where I keep everything. It's starting to really frustrate me. I guess I will keep looking and hope they show up, as I don't want to start all over from scratch rusting everything, etc. Hmmmmmm......
Gee, it's been a long time, once again. I'm good at that, aren't I! My kids are all settled into the new school year. School started last month. My oldest is now in College. Can't believe it. My second oldest is in his last year of High School, and my daughter is in 2nd Grade. Where does the time go anymore.
Forgive me for not posting regularly. It's not always easy for me to do so, just because I have a lot going on. I try and sneak in every so often though. Anyway....
Just wanting to mention a couple of Easter prims that are still for sale on my site. Here is what they look like....
A cute pattern from Crows Roost Prims. These were fun to make!
Pattern is by Kentucky Primitives. Also fun to make.
