New Pumpkin Dolls

I have been enjoying a few days off this summer and had planned on doing some extensive house cleaning.

 But one of my friends gave me just the advice I needed to hear. Now these are words of wisdom, "she said,

I really need to clean my house, but there are things I would rather do." So I took those words to heart and

made crafts and let my extensive housework go. He He But I have enjoyed my summer.

  Here are a few more pumpkin dolls that I have made,

This is a couple set, Jack and Jill,
I used a country stitches pattern.

Pumpkin Jack


This is a Sweetpeas Primitive pattern, that
was in the 2010 Merchantile Gatherings Magazine.

  2. Oh Lecia, I need to take your advice on letting the house work go for a bit...but than again, with our large family of 7, plus 2 dogs and 3 cats...well you wouldn't want to see our house after just one week, lol. So happy that you are enjoying your summer and getting to do the things you enjoy! Your pumpkin dolls are adorable!! I love the newest bonnet that just arrived today, perfect in every way :)
    Have a wonderful evening,
    Hugs, Trish

  5. Great advice! Do what you love to do. The housework will always be there. My husband gets mad at me sometimes because I would rather create than do housework he said we have 7 rooms in this house if you clean one room a day by the end of the week the house will be clean! Yeah right but then I have to start all over again. I'd rather create!!!
    Your creations are wonderful!
    Thanks for sharing

  8. Lecia,
    I am always amazed by your talent. I do agree with Robin--need to see one with a bonnet!:)
    Housework is something that never goes away. It will always be there!

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.
