Primitive Santa Doll

I made two Santa's using a new Tennessee Ridge Primitives pattern.  I'm getting low on this old quilt,  sure wish I had more.  I keep coming up with new ideas that I want to make from it.   The dolls are listed on my etsy and website.
Have a good week everyone.

Ornie's anyone?

I've been babysitting my two Granddaughters alot lately.  The only thing I can do and watch little ones is to make Ornies!!!   I take them to trim, turn, and stuff.  Then, I sew  the opening closed.  I have this big pile finished.  Tomorrow, they get stained and baked.  Then, I think some will go into  prim lamps, others,  in sets.  My Friend Joleen from the primitive bucket, gave me some ideas.  She rocks making Prim lamps w/ornies!!

This is the new sheet music star that I bought form Marian at missmustardseedinteriors.  I just love her
blog.  She is so creative and talented.  I hung my star in the front window.

Next and least, is my Daughter's new Guinie Pig.  Her name is Zoey.
I never thought I would like one, but she's growing on me! I'm such a pushover!
A vege eater scores high in my book!

Have a wonderful weekend.  Didn't I just say that, and now it' another weekend!!!

I've been so busy w/ the Elderly Parents, but wanted to post some fun family stuff.

My MIL had hip replacement surgery last week, and is a big Handfull!
I had a nice weekend  celebrating my Son, Jared's 29th B-day.  Friday, we went out on the town to Philly for Dinner.  I had his Birthday Dinner at home on Sunday.  He has to have the easy, peasy cheesecake, (Philadelphia 3 step cheesecake) for his Birthday cake. I don't mind, It's EASY!!

We have a family tradition of singing  Happy Birthday as loud,  and off key as possible! Newbies, don't know what to think.  Little Ava, held by her Mom, My Daughter, Erin, just loves it, and was clapping, and singing.

Later that night, Ava took a ride on Auntie Kate's Back. Notice the Stuffing Box? LOL...

The next day, my Darling Daughter came home with this!!! Just what I needed was another Critter in the house.

Have a happy week everyone!! I hope to post some craft creations soon.  I keep making the same things over and over, filling orders.  I want badly to finish something NEW!

A few things that I've been working on.

I must say, it's been busy around here.  I'm thankful for all my wonderful customers, old and new.
I had this idea for bell ornies. I was going to call them "Silver Bells", but the bells I bought turned out to be gold, not silver! I'm blaming the poor lighting in Wally world, or maybe my contacts need changing! LOL.
Anyway, I thought they looked better with the rusty ones, so now I call them "Jingle Bells". I did dust them with silver glass glitter which I really like.

A Friend of mine saw my craft show pictures from several weeks ago.  In one she saw a reindeer.  She asked if I could make her one since that one sold.   I was looking through some boxes the other day, and lo and behold, I found several that I made last year.  Here they are.  I think I'll get them listed, since I have extra made up.
I made them from a Chestnut junction pattern, but added the ears.  I love prim, but earless reindeer? No thanks!

My little, and not so little trick or treaters

My DIL, Pam was Batwoman.  I think I'll be a bad MIL and put this picture on FB.
Little Ava had a cold and wasn't a very happy ladybug.

Grace wanted to be a Dr. Like Aunt Pam. 

Grace just loves her Aunt Kate.  Kate already had her Witch costume off.
