Walker loves thrift store stuff.

 1.91 is a favorite price at Value World, and a half off coupon is even better.

He can get his paw in the little openings but can't get the mouse off to carry it away.  It keeps him busy while I drink my coffee.  Of course it keeps ME busy watching him when I should be working.

More about Pigs

Just when you think you are soooo smart and have this brilliant idea, you stumble upon someone who has had that idea before you.

I found this on etsy...thebagglady76 and not only did she use the button for the nose but she named her pig after me!  I have to admit, she is really cute.  Happy Monday!

Remember the pig I dreaded making (in my last post).  She doesn't look like she is supposed to according to the pattern I used by Brenda Sanker.  So I hope she doesn't see this post.  I did take liberties making her.

I hope you like her name.  Have you ever seen the movie "Dan in Real Life"?  That's where I got her name.

Happy Saturday and no I am not going hog wild.

Making Pigs and such...

 We have a big ol' wet nasty snow and Walker and I voted we would stay home.  Someone took this little piggie home, so she went to market for sure.  I really liked making her.
 So I thought I would make another one. But this one is huge and has to be painted (dread) and stained (double dread). It is being put on hold if I can find a place to put it.

Then I switched to something fun. Making something out of odds and ends.

Then ended up my March first reading this book.  It is precious.  Fannie Flagg says you will fall in love with Arthur Truluv.  I have.

Hope you have a good start to a new month!

Hi everyone, I'm still around, just limited by the white stuff.  Turning on the tv weather this morning, I realize how fortunate we are here in Michigan compared to some of you all.

I've been sewing stuff I don't really like, so I was looking through the craft pictures and ran across this one This is my friend Jackie with my grandsons Jacob and Jordan at a show where we used a tent.  Looks like crows were popular, even way back then, or no one wanted to buy her and she just put herself front and center.

Happy winter everyone.

New Doll Angel

I made the heart from a remnant of quilt that I have had forever.  Red ticking fabric is pricey but basic.  No pattern to speak of just kind of morphed.

The weather people are promising warmer next week.  I am looking forward to getting out and going to the craft mall.  Hope y'all are warm.

Recycling is Kind

This is like a 4 x 6 pillow that I attempted to embroidery.  It looked pretty good until I looked at the photo, then all the flaws show up.

Nevertheless I am posting it because...it is stuffed with recycled shredded paper.  It has a very firm feel,  kinda like the old fashioned things that were stuffed with excelsior back in the day.

Anyway it is kind to recycle!
