Trying to get rid of scraps !! Oh..I think they reproduce on their own.... :)
I clean out my scraps over and over and the pile never seems to diminish....Soooo..
I started cutting pieces of my scraps and hand stitching together and ..VOILA ! this is what I came up with...I want to make another one, but with more muted colors...I like the bright multi colored things to decorate my craft room with....
you should try it...Dig into those scraps and just start sewing together and see what you come up with !!

Folky Summer Doodle Booklet 2011
There are 4 folky summer doodles and of course the cover is folky and can be made into a stitchery, ...
I am so excited to have this ready for this week...there are 5 summer folksy doodles( if you include the cover) for you to stitch, hook or needle punch...or even do a wool applique...Here is a little wool rug I did up from one of the doodles in this packet....
And last but not least...I did up alittle freebie doodle for you..I included a horse weather vane in the booklet, so I decided to draw up a good old folky horse as a freebie...Enjoy !!

Every so many months, I have to totally re-organize my craft area.... I am officially going to call my space, my "studio" .... Why ?? Cause I like the sound of that better....When I say craft room, I think of hot glue guns, lace, duck stencils and straw hats and plastic flowers.....lol
I bought a black bookcase to display my wool and I'm looking for primitive cubbies to display my cotton print fabrics and homespuns..
Thanks for peeking !

I don't have alot space or areas ( cabinets, shelves, etc ) to decorate for Spring or Easter ...I downsized some of my furniture for need for room to move around....lol
So...I wanted to at least see some Easter decor, so I threw things together in my craft room...so I get to look at it....:)
I'm working on re-organizing and re- decorating my little " studio".....I need help ...I have a vision, and know what I want, but just have nowhere around here to find what it is I need...grrrrr.. Who knows ?? I am not giving up ....

I am so excited to say that after much google-ing and searching, I actually stumbled upon a nearby rug hooking class !!
The woman who owns a small quilt shop ( part owner ) I happened upon in a little town not too far from us called Pittsfield, Pa. , is holding one in late Spring...
I was initially just l;ooking for some wool yardage and this was the only place I could find within a 100 mile radius....So after finding her shop and finally being in "wool heaven" , I mentioned how it is my dream to learn to rug hook...Well dontchaknow, she is going to be holding a class soon..I almost fell over....so anyways, I did some shopping while I was there and we also stopped at another great Primitive shop in Corry, Pa. called " Something Special "..I grabbed a few things there also....
It was such a nice day even though the weather was awful..It was cold, rainy, windy ...just plain wet wet wet and cold!!
Hugs my friends !!
