christmas stockings

I've been busy crocheting and painting a lot these days. Painted a primitive step stool and some stuffed candy canes. Trying to get ready for a county fair, I'm entering a crocheted rug and one of my crocheted Christmas Stockings, and hopefully i'll get a pumpkin man made before the fair. I don't have pictures at the moment and as soon as I can get Brittany Jo to help me I'll get those on for you to see. I make traditional red and green with or without jingle bells and khaki ones with different colored tops with rusty jingle bells for the primitive look. Just staying busy with making items to sell.

This Time of Year

Oh, My Gosh! I have been in the mood to make new items! The yarn and fabric is flying! Last night I made a candy cane pattern and found some muslin, that I bought at a rummage sale for a dollar and It was on! So, this morning , I drew out 8 and stitched and clipped curves and now they're ready to stuff. I've also been working on some crocheted candy canes for the tree. But, still have to get some jumpers cut out for my gingerbread dolls. Right now the mood has hit me to get to work on all the wonderful Holiday items I can make. I love this time of year with fall coming and the upcoming Holiday Season. It puts me in the mood to create. I know most of us gals that craft , usually have multiple items going at one time. When your tired of working on one , you just switch to another one for awhile. Or at least that's how I work. I just love It!

Hey, It's Me

Hey there everyone! Brittany Jo has been very busy getting me set up for this. I still need her help, she's a real sweetie! I see that she's put on a few pictures and that's great! The crocheted rugs are my latest item I've been working on and sell for 25.00 each they are 33" across and totally washable. I've also had great luck with the crocheted primitive pumpkins which sell for 5.00 for the small ones and 10.00 for the large ones. The full size aprons are 12.00 and the kitchen towels are 2.50 each. I love making things and when I can , I have a lot of fun selling th
em. Gotta go and get creative.

Crocheted Rugs

It's BrittanyJo again, here to show you some of the rugs my Momma has made. Aren't these neat. I wish the pictures could show how big these things actually are. Nope, they're not doilies...They're RUGS! That's right... I said rugs. How pretty are these. I told my mom that I even think they would be pretty on a table or end table ... or even on the back of a chair. How cute!
As for now, I do not have prices for you all but I'm determined to have my mom blog with me...haha. So one of us will get the prices attached to her items soon enough. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check in often. Mom makes more items QUICKER than I do... so there are sure to be some new items on here soon. I'm hoping that she can whip up some of her really cute little gingerbread dolls to show before too long. You'll love 'em!

P.S. On another note. I am going to throw this over to my mom for a while. I just wanted to get some things on here for you all to look at until she gets completely up and running. I will let you all know when it's ME. haha. Thanks again! -BrittanyJo
