Christmas in July

This weeks project is a Christmas wall hanging using machine embroidery redwork.  I love this nativity design.

I decided I liked the little 2" squares of white.  The sashing is a red fabric with small gold flecks.  Ready for quilting!

Happy Day to All!

Today I thought I would introduce you to a great website and business of a couple of great moms who started making sweet little dresses for their sweet little daughters.  The dresses got such great feedback, they decided to start a business making them for customers.

Just check out some of their patterns and what is offered.


I just love the selection and the attention to detail. Visit their page and see for yourself.

Plumping up the Inventory

I've been continually working on Christmas inventory for the fall and winter craft shows that I will be doing this year.

I designated the month of June for painting my recycled spoon ornaments and wound up painting around 200-250 of these little gems.  Here are some of the new ones that have been added this year.

This month (July) I decided to work on recycled light bulb ornaments.  These are great sellers for me. I personalize all ornaments if the customer prefers. Both the spoons and the light bulbs can be personalized with names and dates on the back.  

All these ornaments are hand made by me in my Virginia mountain home.  The spoons and the light bulbs will all sell for $6. Message me if you're interested.
Next month will be wooden ornament month.  Soon I will post craft show dates as well.

Blessings to all,

It's that time of the year again!

It's the time of year when Christmas is on the mind and the inventory needs pumping up for the craft shows.  I rarely do spring and summer shows, but the end of the year is very busy with shows and open house.  Since most of my sales are made with Christmas decoration and ornaments, I need to start NOW!
So.  Around my house it's just about Christmas all year long.
Here are some of the projects I am getting into.

These little hats are made from recycled toilet paper tubes and cereal boxes.  I just love decorating them in different and interesting ways!

 Working on some spoon ornaments as well.

 The little pigs and frogs are made from recycled light bulbs.  Just part of my menagerie.

I'm also working on team spirit spoons and light bulbs.

Team Buntings!

And lovely name buntings.  I charge $2 per letter.  These are hand painted letters on burlap bunting.

Hope you have enjoyed my little update.
Have a blessed and happy day!

Back to Work!

Working on some wedding buntings.

Painted letters on burlap with surged edges.  Embellished with lace and little hand made rosettes.  

Then covered in a sparkly glitter glue just for fun.

What do you think?

Have a blessed day!
