I'm Working Here!

OMG! Is it Thursday already? Time flies when you're having fun, doesn't it? Geez!
Well, here's what I have been doing. I'm working on my own
Scarecrow Jack In The Pumpkin PatchThis is a new kit I've added to the shoppe. I'm so sick and tired of the cold; I am dreaming of warmer days and bright orange pumpkins while making this adorable little mat.
Look at my little Jack, isn't he the cutest? I am lovin' this project. So far, I have all the applique pieces cut out. I have yet to cut out the background...maybe tonight. In the end, I am hoping my little mat looks like this one from Cath's Pennies. I have only kits for this one, but if you'd like just the pattern, you can find it HERE!
My pic's colors are off, I will try to get an outdoor, true color pic posted when I'm done. I just wanted to share my progress, lest you think that I am slacking off or something, LOL! Trust me, I'm working here!

Hello! All you have to do to be on Eloise's guest list is ....SHOW UP! She loves to entertain! :) Consider yourself invited.

I LOVE the scarecrow mat you are making...what a fun project. I need to be making "wabbits and chicks" for a Spring sale I will be in, but right now....I just can't get movin' on it! I will....just like always...at the last minute! :)

I love your new piece of furniture and that tortellini recipe looks simple and delish! I will have to give it a try!

Have a great Thursday! Dana

Oh my heck, so darn cute. Is this what I say to everything? Well, it's true! Sometimes you just have to have some Wool Time!

I ordered this wonderful pattern a few days ago from Cath's Pennies Designs and am anxiously awaiting its arrival. I look forward to seeing yours completed. It has been quite chilly here in NH lately, but it does make it easier to stay inside and get some indoor projects done. Keep warm and busy!
