Its been so long to really be crafting something other than salt dough but that is what I have been doing.... and still at it. I found this terrific pattern to do sunflowers (created originally by Char) and just went to town. It was originally suppose to be made into a nodder but since I haven't found any wire cutters yet, I decided to improvise.
I even went out into the old shed, fought the bees and found this old wooden chicken feeder, scrubbed it clean and here is how it turned out! I love it and plan on making more to put over at Goat Creek Mercantile for sale.
Next on my completed projects list was my penny rug candle mat. I was so nervous because I knew what I wanted to do, just didn't know if I was doing it right. Thanks to Karen over at My Colonial Home my confidence is better as she told me I did great for my first attempt.
Not much else going on at the home front. I have been getting started with a few samplers and stitchery that I have been wanting to try. Once I get them done, I will show you. I am trying to find things I can do in the same room with Wendell.
Are you ready for a few phrases tonight?

Well I am off. It is chat night over at the Prim Pals Forum. Every Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. Central time we hold a weekly chat. Last week we had such a good time that it was 9:00 p.m. before I knew it. I am not use to staying up so late! If you have not come and checked out the forum, you should. We would love to have you join our family!
