krista, I am getting ready to tea dye the fabric. I have it torn into lengths so that I can attach it to some jute. I also sew buttons on it and tie some knots into it to give it a little different look. It is sort of a boho look but it is one that I just love. I am thinking of making them into curtains for my kitchen.

Grace, I'm not sure a tiny glamper would fit my crazy family of five and 2 dogs!! We have been talking of renting one to go at the end of August, so if we do I will take my crochet.

Lori,, a Rag swag,,, post a photo so we can see it.. sounds fun!

Krista,, we need to get you a tiny glamper so you can crochet while Glamping! lol!

Grace, I crochet outside while my kids play on their swing set! I think that counts lol. I agree though. It really is nice to craft outside. But I can't say I have done it while camping!

Lori, they sound lovely! I have always thought tea staining was so pretty. I'm excited to see how yours turn out!

I decided to make a rag swag. I am tearing up material and cutting some lace to make them. I will tea stain some of them and use coffee on some of the others. I am going to sew buttons on some of them, too. My sister-in-law made some and they are lovely. Can't wait to see how they turn out.

Everyone has been so busy. I never heard about Annie's crafting club. It sounds fun. I would love the Christmas ornament one.
Grace. I have never seen anyone sew at a campground. You are a true crafter, friend. LOL

That ornament one sounds wonderful! I'm a huge Christmas fan, so that would be perfect for me. I need to check it out. I forgot to on Wednesday.i. Going to right now!

sherone_13 Posted - Jul 12 2019 : 07:29:15 AM

I love Annie's. it's an inexpensive way to keep crafting. Some of the kits are not my style, but I have so many crafty friends, that I just give them away.


Ohhh, I did not know about the ornament club.....going there now.

Annie's has several different craft clubs. I belonged to the Christmas ornament one. That one had some beautiful kits.

Sherone, I haven't heard of Annie's Craft Club. I'm going to check it out. We love to do family crafts around here. Just last week my boys painted a Woden police car and fire truck with my husband and I. We like to keep them busy with crafts and a birdhouse sounds like so much fun.

Grace, hence why we have so many LOL!

My goal for today is to finish up a couple more crochet orders that I have. I am a little behind and don't want them to wait anymore.

I'm presently working on an Annie's Birdhouse kit. My grandson and I started it when he was visiting. He is being baptized next weekend and I want to finish it and give it to him then. I'll try to remember to take a picture when it is all done. I am a member of the Annie's Craft Club, so I get a new kit every month. I love doing them. They keep me crafting and being creative.

I have been busy sorting through my things. I need to see what I have to buy to start making things for Fall decorating. Fall is my favorite season to decorate for. I love the colors and decorating anything with pumpkins and scarecrows.
I hope your move is going good for you Marie. I agree that the sewing machine and table are a priority. LOL. I'm sure having it up will make you feel more at home. Happy sewing.

I am working on a move. We are moving just enough to set up housekeeping. Lowell doesn't know yet that I want to move the sewing table. I believe I have my priorities straight: 1) Bed and mattresses - He and I, 2) TV and couch - He 3) Computer - He and I 4) Sewing machine and table - ME!

This is the latest of my window screen painting. I've posted two in Nifty Thrifty -Repurposing. When the screens are in a window the picture disappears, but on a wall it shows up. I have several more screens and lots of paint and ideas!
I haven't had so much fun since I sanded the paint off a bowling pin and decorated it with glow in the dark paint.

Heather, those are some neat projects. The flannel shirt bag holder is so clever! It definitely adds some flair to an ordinary thing!

I have been busy trying to finish up some last minute Fourth of July projects for others. I hope I can finish them in time. Lol still need more hours in the day!

katmom Posted - Jun 29 2019 : 6:23:16 PM
Heather, great job on the table topper and the plastic sac holder,, how clever to repurpose them.

Krista, you really should make a matching dress to match that watermelon hat. It would be adorable

Heather, I love the flannel shirt bag holder. It is adorable and such a great idea. I have seen so many things on the farmgirl page that I don't think I could ever get caught up on making everything

I love seeing all the projects everyone is working on!

Krista - what a cute hat, but model is even cuter :)

Here's something I just finished up for my mother in law. It's a little table topper out of her dad's ties.

It looks a lot better on her table than it does on my floor LOL!

Here's a grocery sac holder I made for my brother in law. He loves flannel shirts.
