I meant to post before Christmas, but with last minute shopping, errands and baking, I simply didn't get to it, so I do hope that you and yours had a most blessed Christmas.

I was up WAY too early this morning, so I got the laundry underway then decided after everybody was out the door for work, that I would take down the Christmas tree and all the decorations, even though it's earlier than what I normally do it.
It's taken me practically all day, but it is now finished and everything back into it's place....or a new place.  I find this is a good time to do any rearranging just to give things a fresh look.

While out running errands yesterday, I stopped at the mercantile to pick up my fall/Christmas leftovers.
I'm really not wanting to store them for this next year so I think I will be listing a Christmas clearance.  I hope to get a start on that check back!  Aside from that, I need to catch up with the alterations work and I really want to finish the counted cross stitch I started several weeks ago, that I hoped to get done for a Christmas gift.  I guess it will just have to be a birthday gift and remind myself to start on handmade Christmas gifts for 2012 much earlier than I did for 2011.
Enjoy your evening! 
 I'll be curled up in my little corner of the sofa stitchin'!

Christmas Is Coming!

And we've been busy, busy!
Besides the fudge and peanut clusters made last week, we've been mixing up cookie dough....
Sugar cookie and chocolate chip, both made with splenda...and molasses cookie dough....
We'll be making these up over the next day or two! 

Peanut Butter Fudge
2/3 cup canned milk (evaporated)
2 cups sugar
1 cup peanut butter (I like chunky)
7 oz. jar marshmallow creme
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cook milk and sugar to soft ball stage...(I actually cook mine to JUST a SMIDGE over)
Remove from heat; add peanut butter and marshmallow creme.  Stir in vanilla.
Pour into a 9"x 9" buttered pan.  (You see that I've lined my pan with parchment buttering the two sides not covered with the paper...lifts right out of the pan)
Cool completely before cutting into squares.
I finally got to some Christmas shopping over the weekend so it looks like pressie wrapping this afternoon!
Hope you are having a great week!
Enjoy your day!

Where did the weekend go?  For that matter, where is the month of December going?!
Christmas is now less than two weeks away?
I'm nowhere near ready.
While I have some handmade gifts well underway, I've not done much in the way of shopping. 
No baking or candy making yet.
The trees and most of the decorations are up, however, the lighted garland that should be hanging on the front porch railing is still sitting in its tote in the attic.
I don't know if that will happen or not.
 John and I did take a little time on Saturday for a walk through the woods behind the house, checking out a couple of trees that had been taken down in a storm a few months back.  I think there's enough in those two trees to get us through a good part of winter.
Then I found a little cedar tree to cut to put in this little old car at our back door.
Now that I have it there, I want to ditch the artificial wreath on the old sled and replace it with some fresh cedar.  Hmm, that would require another walk through the woods.
When we got back, we walked out to the horse pasture to check the horses and the pond....
The whole while being followed by our newest little fur baby, Thumper, who you see here not showing any fear from the horses or mules.

A busy day ahead, stitching on some stockings, a cross stitch sampler and I might even try to sneak in some peanut clusters sometime today, as they can be disguised in containers and put in the freezer. 
Out of sight.  Out of mind.

Enjoy your day!

Wednesday Ramblin'...

Yesterday morning, we woke to our first snowfall for the year.  A reported 1.3" for our first snow, obviously a tracking snow, on the 6th of December.
Does this mean we will get only 6 snows for this winter? Hmm...the low number sounds good, but if that holds true, how heavy could  those 6 snowfalls be?
Monday night, we finally lit the fireplace.  
Salem has already staked claim to the kitchen hearth....he's there in the lower right corner, he just kinda blends in with the dark brick!
Nothin' more cozy than sitting quietly in the living room with the warmth & glow of Christmas tree lights and a crackling fire in the fireplace.
I had to do a little baking yesterday.  A friend asked me to make her 4 dozen cookies for her church exchange so I decided to go with these.  They're a sand tart cookie aka pecan sandie, but rather than coat with powdered sugar, I dipped the tops in chocolate!  They look so yummy that I'm going to make another batch today for our church women's gathering this evening!  And.....I thought I'd share the recipe with you today.....
1 cup butter
4 heaping tablespoons powered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1 cup chopped pecans

Mix well. ( I mix in a food processor)
Roll into small balls the size of a walnut. (I use the smallest pampered chef ice cream scoop, level)
Place on  a parchment paper lined baking sheet.   (I then flatten with bottom of glass)
Bake at 300 degrees for 20-25 minutes...slightly golden on bottom or around edges.
Roll in powdered sugar with still warm then again when cooled.
Using the pc ice cream scoop, this will make 48 cookies.
If you would like them dipped with chocolate, I just melted 1 pkg of chocolate chips in the microwave, stirred to smooth, tilt the bowl to get the chocolate on the side of bowl to just dip the top of the cookie.
If you'd like, sprinkle with topping of your choice! 
Let set in single layer on cookie sheets and set in refrigerator to allow for chocolate to set.

Quiet Sunday....

It's a quiet afternoon here in my little corner of the world.
I went to church this morning and the usual stop at the grocery store afterwards.
 I overslept this morning and didn't get my required amount of coffee so I'm making up for that now!

I finally got a few minutes to sit down and thumb through this latest issue of
'Inspiring work spaces of extraordinary women'
And inspiring it is!
To read about and see the work spaces of SO many creative women...
where they've been, where they are now....what inspires them...
With each article come tips of their  trade and favorite quotes...
There was one in this latest issue among the pages of
Allison Tyler Jones that really caught my attention and I want to share it with you...

"When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that
I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, 'I used
everything you gave me.'" 
--Erma Bombeck

Something to think about.....

What I'm workin' on.....

I hope you and yours had a most blessed Thanksgiving!

   I've been collecting these International Harvester prints for awhile now and finally decided on a project.  I'm actually hoping to have two similar finished pieces done for Christmas....( Let's hope that NOW is not the time that he decides to
start reading my blog!)
It took me forever to decide on which four to use for the blocks and keeping the other two for backing.
 I've been cutting strips.....
.....and stitching them together.....
.....cutting and stitching some more.
That's all I will show you for now. 

Don't look too will see all of my flaws even in these early stages.  I am not a master quilter by any means!

It is a cold, rainy, dreary day here in my little corner of the world. As much as I have the itch to get out of the house, I'm staying in where it's warm and dry and sewing on the fun stuff, even though alterations work awaits.
Coffee break is over so back to the machine.....

Enjoy your day!

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Wishing you and yours a blessed Thanksgiving holiday!

We will be spending Thanksgiving with John's family, as his mom and dad will leave Friday morning for south Texas for the winter. 
Lots to do today so I'd better get busy!

Enjoy your day!

The Kitchen Table...

 This is my kitchen table.
Nothin' fancy.
It's not new.
Just an old table made with tongue and groove boards
and the chairs don't match.  
But it's my table.
It suits me and it fits the space.
And it doesn't always look like this!
 For the past several weeks, it's been  covered with sewing machines, fabrics, patterns and an assortment of sewing notions.
Stacks of alterations, finished items....It was completely loaded down.

Yesterday was the day to clear it off. 
I wanted the family to actually sit down to the table for a meal instead of serving dinner buffet style and taking off to the living room.
And we did just that....

I need to come up with a plan to rework the spare bedroom/work room to make it more
comfortable to work in OR come up with an inexpensive way
to complete the back porch to make it a more useful space. 

My challenge for the week is to keep my table cleared off.
Hmm.....I wonder how many days it will actually last......

Quilts...Old & Tattered...

As I was working on these little stocking ornaments the other day, I  wondered just how many old & tattered quilts have been tossed in the trash because someone thought it was too worn for anymore use.
These were made from the scraps of a quilt that I had already used for a number of projects.
Stockings, angel wings,  pockets for cats and stars, pillows... and who knows what else!
So far, all the quilts I've used in my works, I've found in antique shops.
I have a few quilts here that I don't ever see myself using for anything but display.
Several years ago, a friend brought to me three beautiful pieced quilts, all in perfect condition....
to make keepsake bears for her kids. 
Taking that first cut into such perfect quilts....ouch!

I don't think old quilts ever get beyond the point of some sort of use.
If not using as a cutter quilt for handmade projects, simply fold it up and set it on a bench or lay across the arm of an old rocking chair. 
 Use one to cover the bales of hay on your next hayride.  As a Christmas tree shirt for your primitive decorated Christmas tree. Use one as a table cover for your next family gathering or in your  next craft show display.
An  old quilt, no matter how tattered, still has a good number of uses,
so don't toss it out just yet!

Sunday, November 6, 2011


2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1-1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 6-oz pkg Craisins dried cranberries
2/3 cup white chocolate chunks or chips

Preheat oven to 375*.  Using an electric mixer, beat butter or margarine and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, mixing well.  Combine oats, flour, baking soda and salt in a seperate mixing bowl.  Add to butter mixture in several additions, mixing well after each addition.  Stir in dried cranberries and white chocolate chunks.  Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown  Cool on wire rack.. Makes approximately 2-1/2 dozen cookies.
This recipe actually came from the back of the  Craisins package.
I tried this recipe a couple weeks ago and the cookies were SO good, I decided it was a keeper  and I had to make them again just the other day! 
Side note:  I use parchment lined baking sheets.

Enjoy your day!

Gift~Box How~To...

A great way to wrap a gift without having to actually wrap it!

Turn ordinary paper mache' boxes into gift boxes with a few simple steps....
No prepping necessary.....and so simple, I didn't even take pics along the way.....
and chances are, you already have everything you need in your craft cupboard.

Paint the box with regular craft coat  is plenty. And I paint just the outsides and bottom, leaving the insides plain.
Using a finer grit of sandpaper, sand over all and don't worry about sanding off too much paint, as these areas will take in more stain.  After sanding, wipe off residue with a soft cloth.
Stain with  your choice of stain....I will use either a very strong walnut ink crystal stain or  brown shoe polish.  Apply the shoe polish on the box as if you were using on a shoe.
Wrap with a strip of ticking or homespun,  adding a touch of glue where it overlaps in the back. 
Over the fabric, wrap with a strip of stained cheesecloth (you can glue this or not, but cheesecloth will hold to itself)
(on the shorter boxes, I've used just the cheesecloth)
To hold this in place, use a piece of twine, wrapping a number of times around the box.  Tie off  in the front but don't cut the tails just yet.....tie on a tag and/or a piece of greenery...or whatever you so choose!
As I write this, it just occurred to me that I have some grubbied candy canes that would of made perfect tie-ons! Hmm....
Before filling, I suggest placing a bit of paper shreds in the bottom.
If using for homemade goodies, place them in a plastic or cello-bag before placing them in the box.

And you know, this is something you could do with the kiddo's...while you are working on your boxes, they can work on one for their own little gifties for teacher!

Be creative and have fun with it!

Enjoy your day!

Good Saturday Morning!
I hope you had a great week!  I can't believe it's been that long since my last post!

I thought I'd share this last minute finish with you....when I saw it in the magazine, I knew that if I didn't get to it this year, I'd forget about it by next year!  It will make it's way to the mercantile later today in hopes of someone needing a  finish to their fall table or a little giftie for their Thanksgiving dinner hostess.
It's the Oak Leaves & Acorns by Maggie Bonanomi, I mentioned in a previous post, featured in
I also finished up...FINALLY...two of the snow angels I've had sitting forever!
This one has been placed in my Etsy Shoppe... Homestead Gatherings .....
...and the other will be taken to the mercantile....the only difference in the two is the trim.
This design is thanks to Sew Unique Creations.

It looks to be a really nice weekend here in our little corner of the world. 
 After some household chores this morning and a few errands in town this afternoon, I hope to get a little bit of outdoor clean up done.
Tomorrow is the annual Trustee's Cycle Shop Toy Run and we will be riding in that. 
And next weekend is the Randolph Mercantile Holiday Open House, so this week, Rylee and I will be busy busy putting together a few more things for that. 

She's such a good little helper!
Here's a cute little pic from this last week....
I can't help it...she's so dang cute, I have to share it!
Sitting in papa's chair, waiting for him to get home!

Enjoy your day!

Primitive Quilts & Projects...

I thought that I was done with fall things, not that I  make alot of fall things anyway, but I finally got a copy of the Fall 2011 issue of Primitive Quilts & Projects and I just had to get out my wool stash and start cutting and stitching! 
Besides finishing up some aprons, I worked with some wools this week...
This Star Pumpkin Mat was a design in the magazine by Kerry Arthur of Calico Rabbit Designs.
I love it!  I had all the wools in my stash as well as the giant rick rack, which I found at Sew Sweet Quilt Shop , in Brunswick, MO.
This one will go to the mercantile but I will most likely be making another to keep!
The other little ditties are wool pinkeeps....filled with ground walnut shells.  I used a few templates from other designs in the magazine, as well.

Needing something to hang aprons from, I also made up a couple of make-do peg racks.  The slats are from an old chicken carrier from my grandparents is made using  ceramic insulators for the pegs and the other some hooks from my  stash.   I think both turned out pretty neat and will serve their purpose well.

Rylee is home with mama today since there isn't any school today, so I'm going to finish (hopefully) another wool mat that's featured in this fall issue, Oak Leaves & Acorns by Maggie Bonanomi. 

Then on to some other fun projects...
 I found this piece of fabric on a recent trip to Sew Sweet Quilt Shop.
The possibilities with panels such as this are endless.....
This one is Maison de Garance by FRENCH GENERAL for moda
While most will be made into pillows, some will be incorporated into aprons, table mat and/or runner.

So that's the plan for my day....and it looks like the sun is going to shine.....

Enjoy your day!

Holiday Open House...

I was looking at my calendar this morning and it occurred to me that the holiday preview open house is now less than 3 weeks away!
Where in the world has this year gone?
I've not gotten my front porch decorated for fall yet!
New things are arriving daily at  Randolph Mercantile!
Mark your calendar....
November 4 - 5 - 6
I'll try to get in there and snap a few more pics in the next few days.
No matter your taste or decorating style, you are sure to find something at the mercantile!

Saturday Ramblin'...

While the orange cranberry pecan muffins bake, I thought I'd share what I've been working on the past few days.
I found this cute little apron pattern, called the 'Friday Night Apron' on one of my little shopping trips a few weeks ago.
It is by
I may add a button or  some rick rack, as I feel something is missing, especially the one with dots.
And of course with the supply stash that I have, do you think I would find a button to suit me in my collection?
At least one of them will find its way to my etsy shop and the others will go to the mercantile. Don't you just love that paisley print?
A morning of errands  a late afternoon wedding and a hayride later this evening, that I may or may not make it to.
I hope you had a great week and are off to a fun-filled weekend!

Wednesday, October 12, 2011


I got a sweet tooth today.
So while fixing on supper, I mixed up a batch of brownies that I hadn't made for awhile.
After woofin' down two of them already, I remembered why!
I found this recipe probably 10 years ago...somewhere on the web...and it's what I want to share with you today.


Mix the following ingredients together and set aside (or store in an airtight container or bag.)

2 cups sugar
1 cup cocoa
1 cup flour
1 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)
1 cup miniature chocolate chips

To make brownies: preheat oven to 325*; prepare 9"x 13" pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, cream:
1 cup butter (softened)
4 eggs, beating well after each one
Add the dry ingredients listed above and beat until smooth.
Spread mixture into pan.
Bake 40 - 50 minutes.

**Note:  Prepare dry mix and place in cello-bag, add a ribbon and instructions for baking.  Place this in a large mixing bowl or a cake pan, add a few other kitchen treasures to make a perfect bridal shower gift, housewarming or hostess gift!
After spending a few days on housework, alterations and errands, I'm back to some fun work...I bought some fun fabrics on a couple recent shopping trips so I'm working on some more aprons and I'll share them with you soon.

Hope you are have a great week!

My Etsy Shoppe...

Well, sewing machine being contrary as it was, all of yesterdays sewing plans went by the wayside.
I will drag out an old machine later.
Now, that being said,  that doesn't mean it wasn't a productive day.
I never lack for things to do.
I did get a few small items back in my etsy shoppe.
Just click on the link to the right to take you to etsy!
It's been so long since I've listed there and I've found that they've made that web site even more user-friendly. 
I LOVE that!

The weather is absolutely beautiful here today....I've actually got the windows open and letting the house breathe!
(Hope I don't regret it later with the allergies!)

Hope you are having a great week!

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

Wednesday...What I'm workin' on... least I hope I'm workin' on.  My sewing machine has started acting contrary. 
I guess it's time to break it down, clean it, give it a good oil, new needle
and start over.
It's that or drag an old one out of the supply closet!
Remnants from past projects being made into smaller projects.
Simple little half aprons...for the little helper in your kitchen!
These snow angels have been sitting in the sewing room for hmmm.....
let's just say for awhile. 
They will get finished THIS week!
And these are a few things I've been working on over the past couple weeks.
Wools, wool felt and old cutter quilts made into table mats and stockings.
I hope to have these listed in my Etsy shoppe later tonight.

Well, I think little Miss Rylee is needin' some gramma cuddles before her morning nap and before I get started!

Enjoy your day!

Saturday Morning Ramblin'.....

.....and Pumpkin Muffins.
From my mom's recipe box...although it's actually a bread recipe, I used it for these muffins that
I made  yesterday.  The pumpkin, the cinnamon, the cloves......Mmm....can you smell them?
I thought I'd share the recipe with you today.....
Pumpkin Muffins
3 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 can pumpkin (small can)
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Cream sugar and oil.  Add eggs.  Stir in pumpkin.
Sift dry ingredients together and add to pumpkin mixture.
Scoop into lined muffins tins, size of your choice.
Bake at 350 degrees til done....toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
(I use the touch method as if I were baking a cake, but that's just me)
Now, I used 1 1/2 cup Splenda sugar blend and also added raisins and pecans. The amount you use is up to you.
I soften my raisins by putting them in a bowl of water and placing in microwave for a minute or two, and drain water off before adding them to the mix.
If you so desire, you can frost them with cream cheese frosting or a glaze.
You can bake in loaf pans or a bundt pan.
As I'm typing this recipe here, I realize that I left out baking powder when I made biggie, they are still yummy! 
It's to be cooler out today and my yard and outdoor projects are calling my name. 
But dare I venture out?
My allergies haven't bothered me nearly as much as they normally do this time of year but I've also babied myself and stayed inside much of the time.
It might be a good day to just curl up in my chair with stitching in hand and watch a movie or two.
I think I'll put on a crockpot of chili and a peach cobbler or crisp for tonights supper then see what the day brings.

Enjoy your day!

Recent finds.....

...and some not so recent, from my supply stash, just waiting for their new "do".
And these are just a few of the things from my stash.  I'm almost afraid to dig too deep but if truth be known,  I should probably pull everything out and take inventory so I know exactly what I have to work with for this holiday season.
Yesterday, I did pull out my stash of wool felt and cut out stockings.  
So last night, I curled up in my chair to watch season premiers on CBS and began stitching on them. 
I can't remember the last time I started stitching on holiday things this early!

Hope you are having a great week!

Enjoy your day!

My New "Boss".....

Here she is at 2 months....Isn't she beautiful?!  Mama went back to work on the 1st and rather than putting Rylee in daycare (not that aren't good ones out there), I will be staying home to take care of her. 
She's a doll.  Our first day was a little rough....the morning was just fine but certain baby  issues arise and put that on top of first full day away from mama and that can certainly make a little girl cranky.  But we're all good now and have gotten into a routine that I'm sure will change as she gets older. 
Right now, she'll take a pretty good nap after breakfast so I can use that time for work....
either on handmades or on alterations.  
Liz is working at a school so I have weekends, holidays, snowdays and summer break "off"....not that I think this is a job....I consider it a privilege that I get to do this.  And you all know how I've been missing my creative time and this is allowing me to get some of that back. 

I think I mentioned awhile ago that we sold the truck and trailer.  Well, John did find a job driving a dump truck. 
 There will still be some working away from home from time to time but it's much different than what it was.  We are just SO thankful that he found that job when he did and he really likes it.

So, some major changes over the past couple months and we're adjusting. 
I can't believe it's already the middle of September!
Time for weiner roasts and hayrides.....
and  breakin' out the bluejeans, boots and sweaters.
Time to clear off the hearth and clean out the fireplace.
John and his brother got a start on the firewood cutting the other day but it's gonna take lots more!

Enjoy your evening!

More finishes to share...

Before I get to the finishes, I'd just like to take a moment to remember all those who were lost
on that dreadful day 10 years ago.  To their families and friends, thoughts and prayers are with you.
We will never forget.


Penny rugs, dolls and cats.....along with a few other things...
...have made their way to the mercantile. 
Some have already found new homes.

My kitchen counter and table  are covered with lots more in the works.
I've been working on some pillows and will share a pic of them once I get them finished. 

Sew much to little time!

Enjoy your day!

A Finish to Share...

I hope you had a fantastic Labor Day weekend!

After months of picking up and putting down, I have finally finished 'YULE Sampler', a design by
The Primitive Needle.
It has taken it's place on my sampler wall and will hang there year round.

Over the weekend, I finally got the chance to start the Samplermakers challenge.
Using at least two of the motifs of several that were charted by member Jennie Lynn, this is what I'm
starting with....
I'm not sure what the finished piece will be yet...I'm just stitching, figuring it out as I go.

Open house is THIS weekend and I've been stitching up a storm...alot of works-in-progress....just awaiting finishing touches which I hope to get done today!
But first, I have some bananas thawing on the counter to be made into muffins so I'd better get started!

Enjoy your day!

This Silly Cat.....

As I type this he sits on my lap, front paws on the desk and he turns his head up to look at me like..."I do good?"
If I'm working with it, he thinks he must be included. 
I stitched up a couple of things over the weekend, so yesterday I sat down to stuff them and look who thought I needed help............
Okay, so maybe not help.  I think he may of thought this would be a good place for a catnap?
He soon grew tired of my plucking of stuffing and moved on.
And this is what happened.....
...some time ago when I bought a new apron pattern and needed to cut the pieces apart.

I keep some stitchin' supplies in this box and when I took out the current work-in-progress and left the box open, this is what happened.  He can find some of the funniest places to nap.
Cats are funny little creatures, aren't they? 
I had a fairly productive day yesterday.....lots of works in progress.  I even have a doll in the works and I can't remember the last time I made a doll.  I finished a small quilt project, penny rug, and the 'yule' sampler that I've been working on for months.  I'll post pics soon!
I even worked in some housework and laundry and cooked supper!  That's what happens when I get up at 4:30 am!
Time to get busy.....Enjoy your day!

Good Sunday Morning!

Mmm....the feel of fall is in the air! It's a very pleasant 62 degrees out this morning.

I was really glad to see this weeks HL coupon....another 40% off one regular priced item! I was in there the other day and found that they have the boppie cushions. So, I passed it up, taking the chance they'd have the 40% coupon this week and sure enough! How often does that happen?
Did you know that you can also use the 40% off coupons for magazines at Hobby Lobby? Yep!
In-Store Coupon : Weekly In-Store Specials : Hobby Lobby - Hobby Lobby

So just what are you going to do on this day? I'll be going to church this morning, then have a bridal shower this afternoon.

Enjoy your day!
