Thanks for visiting!
My first bit of news and happenings is to give a fellow blogger from N. Ireland a plug on the launch of her selling blog, The Primitive Crows Nest. Carole is a multi talented crafter so please check this out!
I think I'm already in 'winding down - holiday mode' lol! I've started a few relatively simple sewing items and can't get around to finishing them! it's lazy of me, I know, but the weather has been gorgeous here and we've been outdoors as much as possible.
I made up this Annie shelf sitter for fun, to use up the Americana fabric -my kids are always really amused at the hair-do's I give them and Cerys had as much fun giving this doll funny hair as with any of her own dolls!
This is one of Twigs' 'Primitive Blessings' free patterns - they're great but I'm not sure how to finish it off - any suggestions?And yet another project is this - a star make-do from Tennessee Ridge Primitives which I LOVE but have to paint and stain - oh boy I need to finish something!
Right, I'm going to stop messing about and get something done so I promise to have the stars make-do finished for Friday in between packing the suitcases! So check back then and let me know what you think!
As for our trip to the US in a few days time, we're getting so excited. I love the food, the craft shops and of course primitive, country stores. Just can't wait!
The plane flight is 8 hours and I got this book to read whilst traveling but I peeped inside the first pages and it was too late! I couldn't stop reading! It's a good, lightweight read and I'll definitely read the next in the series which comes out in a couple months. ( It's OK, I've already ordered a Beverly Lewis novel from Amazon to read instead!lol!)
Before I go there is a prayer request I need to mention for a young mother who just gave birth to her son last Wednesday and 2 days later was diagnosed with stage 4 malignant melanoma and has already had surgery. Please please pray for this young mum, her husband and 2 daughters that The LORD would be a very present help in trouble.
Thanks so much for reading this and for your interest.
Hope to hear from you and will post on Friday my finished stars.
Blessings to you
