Stormy Saturday....

Hope everyone is safe and sound today. The weather is turning rather nasty here. Hopefully, these storms will move through quickly with no damage. My Bradford pear tree in front is swaying back and forth...wonder how long it can do that???

Today's special at my web site is this:

Prairie Bird Make-do
Only $5.00 each.
You can find it here:


I finished these up this week and wanted everyone to see them...I think they turned out great!

If anyone is interested, please email me.

 I have just a bit more to do on my taxes and we file them!! YIPEE!! Has everyone else got theirs filed?
I do hope that I am not the only one that waits until the last minute....

I really do appreciate you all stopping by today and I had a few more pics to post, but I can't seem to get them here. Maybe later....

I'll be back soon.

Wednesday Special and new goodies...........

Happy Wednesday All!

It is a bright, sunny day here in K-ville and on its way to being warm as well.....maybe time to plant a few things in the garden??


Just a couple of things before I get busy with wood today.

Finally, I got a pair of these fabulous little shoes all finished! I know the pattern has been around for a while...but, I could never seem to get them to suit me. These however, are one of the sweetest things that I have made in a long time.

I'm working on brown and red ones too! These will be on my web site soon and at the Antique Marketplace (in Greensboro) when I make a run there in a day or two.


This is Wednesday Daily Special:

Monday's Web Site Special..........

Happy Monday, Y'all!

I'm hoping that today is going to be one of those REAL productive days where I get everything done on my list. So far, so good!!

I made a post the other day about quantity versus quality. I would really like to know what other folks think..... I'm pretty sure it might be a concern for more than just me.

I had a conversation with a friend of mine the other day and she seems to feel the majority of folks don't really care about the quality of the crafts they purchase. They care more about quantity than quality. I honestly think that most of my customers really look for and appreciate the quality of goods they get from me. What do you guys think??? Have an opinion one way or the other? I would really like to hear what y'all think.

email me if you prefer:


 Monday's Web Site Special and it's another good one!!

Find it here:

I'll be adding a couple of things to my web site in a bit, so be sure to check under the What's New category. One is a OOAK....

Got to get busy again....
thanks for stopping by.....

Cold and rainy Saturday.........

How's everyone today? Well, I do believe it has turned back to Winter. It has been a very gray day here. Cloudy and rainy from morning to night. The kind of day you want to stay inside and read a book, have a cup of tea and just relax. We had planned to be outside, but ended up inside when we were here. We started out being a bit lazy...there was another one of those wee hour thunderstorms that wakes me up and I couldn't go back to sleep. So, after roaming around the house at 2 am, I ended up staying in bed until after 7. Believe me, I hardly ever do that.
Later in the morning, we decided to go on a hunt for mantles for our outside gaslight. After going to several local stores, we decided to go to Winston Salem to look. (There seemed to be a lot of folks out shopping today, even with gas prices nearing $3.80 a gallon.) We found them at an outdoor garden type store. Only $13.00 for the two we needed. Hubby got them installed, but couldn't get the gas turned back on. I'll call the gas company on  Monday...
I did a bit of crafting today, but not really what I wanted to do. There are times when I seem to have a lot of projects started and I have to take a day (or at least a block of time) and finish up a few. I worked on a few new patterns as well......
While I'm thinking of it.....I had a conversation with a friend of mine the other day and she seems to feel the majority of folks don't really care about the quality of the crafts they purchase. They care more about quantity than quality. I honestly think that most of my customers really look for and appreciate the quality of goods they get from me. What do you guys think??? Have an opinion one way or the other? I would really like to hear what y'all think.
Not really any pictures to share, but I'll be back tomorrow with a new web site special and more.......
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
Until tomorrow....

Friday night.....

Well, it's the end of another week.....kinda looking forward to the weekend. We have several projects to finish, including filing our taxes and working in the yard. Personally, I have a few sewing projects for myself that I would like to do. The weather seems to be turning a little stormy all around....hope it blows over.
Oh, I wanted to be sure and tell you guys that I have sold two of my bears today! Woo Hoo!! It really thrills me that folks like my designs!
Here's a couple of things I listed on my web site today.

These sunflowers are fabulous in person...over 10 inches across in size!! They are wonderful mounted to sticks or dowel rods (if you prefer). I sell them on my web site as "heads" only. Shipping would just be too much with these stems at 22 inches and more.
You can find them here:

I also finished this doll today:
Meet Isabella

She is so prim and grungy, a little different from what you're used to seeing from can find her here:

Thanks for stopping by.
I'll be back soon.

Thursday evening....

Hey guys! I've been reading about how folks are getting their gardens ready to plant...well, I guess you could say that about Hubby and me. We decided that we were going to try a raised garden this year. Mind you, neither one of us really knows what we're doing, but oh well, we'll learn as we go. I have already learned that treated lumber is perfectly safe to don't have to worry about contamination and hopefully it will last for years to come. I have also learned that bags of dirt are heavy and expensive! We have bought about 12 bags so far to the tune of about $80 plus dollars. I'm sure you're asking why we didn't buy a load and have it delivered??? Well, we thought of that, but there is not enough space to dump it where we need it, so we thought this would be easier for us. Lesson number not try to pick up bags of dirt if you have a bad back. In fact, stay as far away from it as you can. Okay, enough of the garden...on to what I have been working on.

This is one of my (most) favorite things in a while....I have been wanting to do this for a long, long time and couldn't seem to find a pattern to suit me, so I sat down with the kitties the other day and fiddled around with it, until I got the look I wanted.
His name is Raeford Johnson and his arms and legs are jointed. He's got sooo much personality and can be found here:

 I would love to offer him as a pattern, but still haven't had a chance to figure all that out.
Maybe in the next few weeks.....

Here's a new sign that I finished up and added to my web site this evening.......

Perfect for anyone living in the South or from the South!!

You can find it here:

You all are not going to believe this, but I haven't finished my taxes yet...I almost have all the numbers ready and hopefully by tomorrow Hubby can do his part! Every year, I say that I will never do this again, but guess what??? It just kinda sneaks up on me. Not sure if it even matters if the government shuts down tomorrow. 

If you haven't been by my web site lately, stop by soon. Lots of new goodies to see!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I would love to hear from you all.
Until next time.
Hugs and Blessings,
