I live in the beautiful state of Wisconsin. I'm a wife and stay at home mom of 3 sons. I love to paint, sew, knit, stitch and create. I enjoy selling my creations at local fairs, ebay and here on my blog. When I not crafting I love to decorate my home. I'm always moving furniture, painting or switching things around. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day~*~Leanne~*~

It's Summer in Wisconsin and That Means...


Starts today.
The worlds largest music festival.
Click on the picture to see what it's all about.

I will definitely be going...more than once.
I'm not sure when but there is sure to be good friends, good music and good food.
We always have a good time.

Now you know why I'm not going to get much crafting done.
We also have relatives in town, Jack's baseball tournament, Brewers game and tailgate, our family's big croquette tournament and with the 4th of July holiday...
just to name a few of the fun things we'll be doing in the next week or so.

When summer hits Wisconsin we play hard!

Enjoy your day,

This is what I've been working on lately...

Penny Rugs....
and runners.

 Doll bodies...
soon to be cute little raggedies.
 Some punchneedle pins.
 More penny rug candle mats.
I listed these on ebay.
With all the rain we've been getting I haven't been able to work outside sooooo....
it leaves more time to stitch or
sew or
that makes me happy!

Enjoy your day,

A Little Shopping Trip...

First I wanted to show you what I just listed on ebay....

These hand stitched Penny Rug Candle Mats.

 These are made from wool...
the wool that I dyed earlier this spring.
 I just love how these turned out.
 And they were fun to stitch!
I know I'm going to make more of these.

Now to share the goodies from my shopping trip....

Jack number 11 in blue was in a lacrosse tournament this weekend
and it happened to be about 10 minutes away from one of my favorite
fabric stores.

In between one of the games I made a quick trip to JJ Stitches.
I got some new patterns.

And I also stopped in A Day In The Country for some
supplies for punchneedle with wool yarn.
I tried a little sunflower mat this spring and I've been wanting to make more for
my craft fairs this fall.

Happy Crafting,

Oh What a Beautiful Day....

It's raining no it's pouring...
but it's still a Beautiful day to me!
 I haven't been here lately because it's been crazy around here...
Not a good crazy...
but a bad crazy.
I have been spending time visiting my brother in the hospital.
He is my only sibling an we are very close.
We even live only a few miles from each other.

Because of prayers from many, many people from all over the world...
 he's healthy and he's back home.

 Believe in the power prayer!

Your voice will be heard!!!

Treasure each day!

Take time to be thankful!
So you see why...
It's a Beautiful Day!!!

Enjoy your day,
