Mothers Day

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. My kids came to the house and fixed me homemade pizza. I am blessed with such  wonderful great children! I love you all so much!! 
I have been working on putting in our vegetable garden and doing things outside. The weather has been pretty and it's hard to stay inside. I've been painting a set of rockers that are on the front porch. They looked really bad as all the white had chipped off. I decided they needed a little color. Next is repainting the shutters on the house.

Snow Dyeing Again

We've had enough snow to do some snow dyeing again. This time I'm trying to dye some canvas. I'm not sure how well it will take the color. I guess I'll find out tomorrow.

Working on a new website

Sorry everyone! I know it's been a long time since I have been on here. I have had a really busy November. I am trying to build a new web store. Trying is the key word there. Nothing seems to be going right. I have had trouble at every turn. To top it all off, my daughter had a major surgery and my mother-in-law had to go by ambulance to the hospital. Both were on the same day and in two different towns. It was a blessing that my firefighter/EMT husband was at home that day. I took my daughter for her surgery and the hubby went with his mom. Both are home and recovering, but it was a crazy time.

I thank you for sticking in there with me. I promise a nice Grand Opening Sale.

'Til then shop my Etsy shop!

Thanks Sandy

I picked the 2 winners from the pin cushion blog hop.   Theresa has won the fabric bundle. I have not heard back from the 2nd winner yet so, that may come up for grabs again.

Thanks for your patience,

Today is My Day for the Pincushion Blog Hop

Well today is my day. I guess my pincushion is better fitted to the Wicked Blog Hop.  I want to thank Kristen and Madam Samm for hosting the hop. It has been fun.

I have Halloween on the brain and I love to watch The Walking Dead so I decided to use a piece of my snow dyed fabric for my pincushion. I cut a rectangle, sewed together the short ends.

 Then I ran a gathering stitch around each end and gathered one end tight, then sewed it shut.

I then added rice to the bottom and polyfil to the top half and gathered tight and sewed shut.

And now you get to meet my creation.
Meet Griswald my zombie friend.

 Hope you enjoy the rest of the blog hop! Please be sure to check all the other great creations from all the other bloggers today. Now a Giveaway! If you sign up to follow my blog please leave me a comment telling me you follow and for another chance to win leave me a comment telling what your favorite pattern is in my etsy store.
