"It is a token of health and gentle characteristics when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied." ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

Sneak Peek......Simply Primitives... posting...July 15th

Simply Primitives July 15th

Here is just a quick little sample of the items I will be posting on Simply Primitives on July 15th. To all my blogger buddies, you get to see all my goodies a few days before they are posted! I have been wanting to make a primitive doll for awhile now....so Miss Emily was created!! She had to have a best friend too, welcome Miss Millie!! I have also used one of those lucky primitive finds and made a crow make do, by a pattern from Chris from Walnut Ridge Primitives. Thank you Chris your patterns are wonderful! Also, I was doing the "happy dance" when Schneeman Folkart decided to make patterns!! So here is my latest creation Little Chair Cat......I have seen these in many antique shops, and was just thrilled to be able to make my own!! I hope this finds you enjoying a tall glass of iced tea and staying cool!! We have finally reached the "hot" stage here in the Pacific Northwest...it is warm, but I will never complain!! We had our fill of cold grey rainy days here for awhile. I have been busy "nursing" my poor hanging plants, my green thumb has been tested this year!! Lets just hope we have some blue sky here for awhile, it is truely lovely!! 

Happy Primitives to you and Yours!!!

All your creations are wonderful. I especially love the crow which is natural since I adore the Fall. It's been hot and humid in the Midwest and my plants are confused. They like the humidity but and not really happy with 90 degree heat
