I Just Can't Get Enough....

Wool Applique!
 I have been stitching like crazy. I do all hand stitching.
 Before I finish one piece
 I have the next one all cut out and ready to go.
 I have so many ideas
 and so little time.
 Now I can't use all of these myself and I've given so many away as gifts.
That I started selling on ebay and at craft fairs.
 I had to show you this little raggedy...her face makes me laugh every time I look at her.
 Yes, I started Christmas already.
 I can't wait for Christmas. I just love entertaining for the Holidays.
I started watching the Hallmark Channel's Holiday movies...yes they are showing Christmas movies already....I love it! 
I can picture it now... stitching on a Santa, watching a Christmas movie, sipping on some warm apple cider on this cold evening. Now I just have to convince my family to watch Christmas movies in November :)
I just listed all these goodies on ebay.  If you're interested in seeing all my listings Click here to see them.
Enjoy your day,

Happy November....

I just wanted to wish you a Happy November!
Can you believe how quickly October flew by?
I've been busy crafting, crafting, crafting...three more fairs to go.

This autumn wreath is what greets you at my front door.  I bought this wreath last year after fall for a really discounted price.  Now this is not exactly what it looked like.  I added some extras...more color with cranberry leaves and some ribbon.  I just love how it turned out and it's so big you can even see it from the street.
 I have to say I really enjoy making these guys or girls.  I search all year long for just the right candle sticks.  I then decide if the candle stick looks like it should be with a pumpkin or snowman or snowlady, primitive or not.
 I dusted these with cinnamon.
 Can you see the jewelry accents?  I search for all year for jewelry for just that added sparkle.  They are dusted with a real fine glitter. These are all one of a two are alike.
 Back to stitching.  I love changing up colors to see how different a piece will look.
 I can't get enough sunflowers.
 I'm big on pillows. 
My family asks me how many pillows do we need in this many as I can fit!
 I had so much fun doing all the curly-q's on this pillow.
 Table topper for fall....
 table topper for winter.
So you can see how happily busy I've been. 
I'm working on some mitten table toppers and runners right now....I'll share them with you when I'm done.
Some of these items I will have on ebay, some will go with me on my craft fairs and some will stay right at home with me.
Enjoy your day,
