I was wondering the same thing.

The embroidery is great and those plaques are wonderful.

My 15 year old has been mixing up Goat's Milk Soap (first trial batch we thought was a goner, but it's looking nice already).

My 20 son is drawing more to put in his Etsy store.

My 12 year old is quilling gift tags to sell at the Farmer's Market

I'm canning jell, crocheting, knitting and now writing.

Tomorrow, however, I will be doing work on the truck. Someone has to do it. Now that I'm driving it, there must be a rear view mirror mounted and a new knob to turn on the windshield wipers (so I don't have to use pliers anymore). Then I just have to figure out how to fix the passenger window.

Kristina, what a busy bunch. As to the passenger window, you usually have to take the inside cover off of the door. If it just jumped the track you can probably put it back in and then wind the window up all the way and see if it needs some grease on the winder. Sometimes you have to replace the entire track or replace the door. Either of those two are a really big hassle. If it does not want to go up and down without dropping out again, you might just want to get it in position, jam the track up with a piece of wood that you secure to make sure it does not move, take off the winder handle and tape the whole thing shut. Been there and done that one.

Took a break from "apron-ing" yesterday and worked on ATCs and Tags.
Here are some "Fairies & Magical Folk" ATCs I made for a swap (not a Farmgirl Connection swap)

I love everyone's work. You are all so talented. I am working on a crocheted afghan with elvis on it in crochet for my sister's birthday in August. Good thing I have alot of time, cause I can only do a few rows a day without getting fatigued from all the counting and switching colors between black and white.

I'm working on putting together blank cards with my photography on the front. I plan to add these to my store, sell at the Farmer's Market, and possibly open an etsy shop too.



I am also working on getting my dd's graduation announcements made using a photo I also took. I'm having a lot of fun with photography today. I have to let dd look the announcement over before I make more. Taking her senior pictures myself saved us a ton of money, and she is getting pictures she creates and loves (with her horse, dog, outside etc).

Then I need to get back to knitting a dishcloth for the Farmer's Market.

Catching up on old projects and, now that I have figured out how to post pictures here, showing off a bit.

These are the handkerchiefs I made Ric for Valntine's Day. The hoop works, thank you!

Farmgirls Got Talent!!! No doubt about it! Hey, CJ got the box of fabric yesterday! Thanks
Sis...I am so blessed by you! I also love your Fairies and Magical Folk!!!! Very Charming! I love all things Fairies!

Kristina...love your photography note-cards. I did that years ago and sold them too. People will buy them from your store...no doubt about it. I sold out all of mine. Also, I did 200 Inspirational Journals...where I incorporated my photography, poetry, and of course lined journal pages. I sold out of those too. Just another idea for you with your photography.

Alyce...adorable little hankies!

Still working on YoYo's and Granny Squares!

blessings,
Peggy

Phillis I love the rug. I'm in the process of making on with Aunt Philly's toothbrush pattern. I think it is going to be easier than crochet. What part of Oregon are you in? I'm in The Dalles. I would love to find someone close.

I finished this 'trailer' pillow a few days befor my 'Trailer Slumber Party....

the inside of Cori's trailer is done in browns & blues... so I was thrilled to discover a had a bit of fabric in blu/bro in my stash to use on the pillow. I hand stitched the trailer and used my machine to embroider Cori's name & SOTF (sister o/t fly) number.
The blue tray, was an aluminum tray that I found at the local Thrift, to which I purchased, brought home & spray painted.... it too went to Cori, for her trailer. Gotta luv a good can of spray paint!

I have just finished 4 needle-felted mug rugs. Bought a book on felting today for $1.00! Can't wait to try some of the patterns.

I just finished filling tea bags, 150 of them. Now am working on some coffee one, which are nice for individual cups of coffee. My hubby uses them for work. Now back to my knitting, working on some table runners.
