Crafts I have been working on.

My Mother in law has been transferred to a regular room. That is wonderful news, thank you all

for keeping her in your prayers. Remember my daughter Stephanie.

She is so sick with the flu and being a diabetic makes it twice as bad.

    I am going to show some of the crafts that I have been making. I am thinking of closing my selling blog,

I just don't have the time to maintain it like I should and etsy doesn't seem to be working for me.

 If you do see something you are interested in on my blog just email me. First I have 2 valentine

make do's, they are on an old bobbin and the bobbin is setting on an old zinc canning jar lid.

 I have made some "Basil Bunnies", they are a free pattern by Wendy of "Ravenwoodwhimzies"

I made four of these, two brown and two black.

Next are two girl bunnies, they are a pattern by "Kim Whim's".

Three shelf sitters, a pattern that I went partially by, "Threadbare Primitives"

And then a lovely prim doll "Tilly", a pattern by "Bittersweetfolkart"

  And of course I needed to make some bonnets in a new color, I have three of these, they

are a mustard/tan fabric and approximately 26 inches long.

Make do's approx. 15" high,  2 available

$15.00 plus shipping (each)

Basil Bunnies are approx. 18" tall.

  1. Everything looks wonderful sweetie!! The Valentine make-do's are especially darling! Good news on your MIL, I pray that she continues to heal!
    Love ya girl!

  2. I keep your MIL in my prayers and will certainly add Stephanie. My hubby is diabetic and the flu is dangerous for them.
    Your new offerings are delightful. Love everything. Sorry to hear that Etsy isn't working for you. I don't go there very much. Warmest wishes for your week!

  3. So sorry to hear that Stephanie now has the flu and will continue to keep her and your MIL in my prayers.
    All of your new creations are so cute, Lecia. Keep your chin up, things have been really slow on my end as well.
    Sending hugz,

  4. Hi Lecia,
    So glad to hear that you MIL in improving. Saying a prayer for you daughter. My hubby is diabetic and he had a touch of the flu this past week...and I worried about him.
    Love everything you made...the heart make-do's are adorable! Sorry that Etsy isn't doing well for you. I found that I do the best by selling my items from just my blog. I added a shop page to it and did very well with my items this past Fall and Christmas.
    Wishing you a good week.

  5. So happy to hear that your Mother-in-Law is doing better. I hope Stephanie gets better soon too. I admire your courage in starting a selling blog. I remember when you were wondering about it and then finally produced it. I was proud of you. Life can get crazy sometimes and it seems there is no time to do the things you love to do properly. Keep having the courage to do the things you love if you truly do still love it. Good luck with all. -Steph-

  6. Wonderful news about your MIL! I hope she continues to improve....Praying for both her and your daughter -- I'm sorry she is so ill.

    Your new items are so cute! Love them all. Sorry etsy isn't working out, and that you may be closing your selling blog. I can imagine that it is very hard to find the time to keep up with everything.... Good luck with it all.

  7. Hi, so glad to hear she is still improving. Love all of your new "stuff", those rabbits are so cute. I hope you find a good outlet to sell your things, as I know you love creating and you just have to find the right place.

  8. Lecia I just love everything you make. I especially love the Basil Bunny in the red stripe and of course Tilly...I do love Etsy...but think it can be overwhelming..there are so many choices. I really like coming everyone's blogs..and see what's being offered first!!! I'd much rather adopt from friends..hehe!!

    So so glad your MIL is doing better. That's wonderful news. Katie

  9. Wonderful Creations!!!
    Glad to hear you MIL is doing better ~ hope she continues to improve. Hope your daughter is feeling better soon. Prayers will continue to flow.
    Prim Blessings

  10. Oh Lecia, I didn't know. I will be praying for your MIL and your daughter!

    You have been busy! As always, I love all your creations!

  11. Lovely goodies Lecia!! So glad to hear your MIL is doing better.

    Have a wonderful day~Becky

  12. I love your new bonnets and the Basil Bunnies.
    The Valentine bunnies are really cute, too.
    I am so relieved for your mother-in-law, I hope
    she gets stronger every day. I hope your
    daughter gets better very soon.

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.
