It has been a very hectic and crazy week but I am finally able to get back to my blog and hoping I don't get booted off before I finish this post. I am working hard to get more things made for craft show on the 22nd and crossing my fingers that it is a good one. This is some squares I have cut and ready to meke some Christmas runners
I decided to do some deep cleaning and change a few things around like moving my sewing back in my sewing room and also moved my computer back in here before I get back to sewing. Every time I decide to post a new post in here I am getting booted off. I guess that's how it is when you like near a forest and have to use an air card for internet. They had to send me a new one and it is the third one and it is NO better. Then to top it off I also had to get a new cell phone and was also without a sewing machine for 10 days. Just a few more days of rearranging and I can get back to sewing again I am not even going to tell you what this will be but I guess you can see that it is some old socks that were kind of stretched out and I put them through primming and will show you what they look like when they are finished :)

This is some fabric I also put through the primming process and there is only one person that knows what they are for..will show pictures when they are finished
Of course I am sure most of you know who stitched these labels for me and she does a great job..Thank you for your help Linda...they turned out great

This is also something I received in the mail that was a surprize and I made it into a door hanger and have hand quilted it since I took this picture

And another surprize I got in the mail and still have to quilt around some of it but I think I might cheat and use my sewing machine to quilt part of this one

I did get a few things finished and these are a few candle mats I finally finished

Another good job stitched by Linda and I think it looks good in this frame..what do you think?

This is one of my favorites and it is in a Vintage frame. I will try to show more pictures as I get more items finished. I do have 5 bins full and ready to go to craft show but still have a few more things to get finished up. Just hoping for good weather on the 22nd.

I hope this post makes sense since it is going on 1 A M and I am a little tired ...maybe I will do better and have a post that is more interesting next time :)



Good luck on your upcoming show, fingers crossed for good weather too! Everything looks great, Linda does a great job on her stitching. Have a great week!

You are really on the ball with blocks already cut for Christmas table runners, primed socks, and primed gingham. Are those for potato sacks? I have and use a potato sack and I don't know how I ever lived without it. The embroidered items are beautiful.
