I told you guys that I would show you these when I got them finished. Well I'm about halfway thru the stack. I am going to sell these at the craft shows. Closed they measure about 4 x 4. Doesn't everyone needs a first aid kit for their purse or backpack. I hope so.

I just finished these and I wanted to show you guys and also to give credit to Jen who came up with this idea. She does a wonderful job and has a book coming out on pincushions, check out her site. http://medievalbeads.com/content/view/32/70 . The base of the pincushion is a soda bottle cap. Very sweet.

Hey, where did you come from. What a ham!!!
We went to some garage sales yesterday and I found a beautiful red wool sweater (25 cents) that I came home and felted it so that I could use it for a project that I have been thinking of. I'll show you when I get it finished. Also sewing patterns from the 50's and 60's ( a cute apron pattern), vintage wrapping paper, and some cute note cards (all for 25 cents) how cool is that!!
I love this gift wrap
Also, I just finished a felted purse, I still need to come up with an embellishment for the front, maybe a felted flower or a needle felted design. I might need to ponder that for a while. Also, started a purse with the yarn sent to me by Tasha from the virtual vacation swap. It is the softest wool yarn it almost seems a shame to felt it, you did hear me say ALMOST. Oh yeah, that baby is going to be felted I just can't stop myself.
A little hair cut
A work in progress
Warm thoughts to all...

Apples, pumpkins, mums, apple cider, sunflowers, scarecrows, hay bales, corn stalks, raw apple cake, leaves changing color, vineyard harvest this is what makes this time of year a favorite of mine. Where is my camera??
Busy, Busy Busy. Does anyone else out there knit for holiday shows. I love it but it is a bit time consuming and no matter how early I start I always feel a little behind. Here are a few of my hats. The skateboarders and snowboarders love these....

I like to share this site with you http://www.maryjanesfarm.com/snitz/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=25 This is the barter section of their website. Tina came up with a great idea about bartering for Christmas presents so if your interested go by and visit. I personally think its a great idea and what a wonderful way to get handmade gifts for everyone on Santas list. I am going to put together a listing of items that I'm making with a description and a barter price (or selling price) and then shipping would be extra depending on the weight of the item. So what do you think. There is so much talent out there ladies lets get to bartering. To see pictures of what I'm making look for the word BARTER under the labels section.
