What I have been making!

Hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday! My husband and I went to our farmhouse in WV. We

took a drive on the back roads in the country and ate at a little country diner. I love doing that.

 As you know I love bonnets, I have 5 bonnet patterns and can only figure out 3 of the patterns,

I have a hard time with patterns I am such a visual person. And one pattern gets me so frustrated that I am

practically in tears.  But I just bought a pattern from Deb from, Pilgrims and Pioneers Primitives,

it is a beautiful pattern, and yah, I figured it out. I have made 7 of these bonnets. Plus a few other goodies.

These bonnets look great hanging on a peg rack, but really
good on the side of a cabinet door.

They have lined prims that make them nice.

A little doll dress and bonnet set, I just need to go
out in  my yard and find a stick for a hanger.

I just thought I would try making a simple bag holder,
I want to make one with my grandbabies photo on it for my daughters Birthday, shhhhh!

The bonnets are between 24-25" in length, and they are $20.00 each if interested.


  1. Lecia I love the bonnets and dress, the bag holder is perfect and what a wonderful idea for a gift.

  2. Wow! The bonnets look great!!

  3. Love your new bonnets!! I am hoping to do some sewing this week. I know what you mean about some of those patterns, I end up putting it in my to finish tote and well it never gets

  4. your bonnets are beautiful.. you have a great eye for fabrics. You have picked the perfect fabrics to make these look like they belonged a long long time ago. I love them.

  5. Hi Lecia,
    sounds like a relaxing time spent together!
    Love the new bonnets. I'm a hands on person too and get frustrated at times like yourself, but I keep plugging along.
    Well much to do today so I better get away from the computer and get going!

  6. The little bonnet queen is at it again - and did herself proud! They're great Lecia!! And I'm loving that little bonnet and sweet is that?! Gotta ponder where I could add some more bonnets to my nest!! Glad you had a good holiday - sounds like my kind of fun - I love back roads and homey diners! Have a great week! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
