Coverlet Prim Doll

I just made a new doll with coverlet fabric, I am quite proud of her. She is approx. 26 inches tall and grunged.

I used a Bittersweetfolkart pattern for the body, but shortened the legs. I stitched on a face and modified

the dress.She is also wearing grungy pantiloons under her dress. If anyone is interested I am asking $39.95.

Just send me an email.

Blog Background

I am having trouble getting a blogger background for my blog. None of the free ones would work,

so I just went to blogger and used one of their ugly ones. He He

Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations?

Also I am sorry I have been neglecting blogging, I am just too busy when I work both jobs.

Update on my MIL, she is slowly improving, she has been in the hospital a month now.

They are talking about sending her to rehab, it has been a slow process, but she is getting better,

thank you for your prayers. Lecia

Loosing a dear blogger friend.

My heart has ached today as I have found out that we have lost one of our dear blogging friends.

Janice "Blackcreek Primitives"  . She was one talented lady and an awesome crafter.  We had

become friends through blogging. She was devoted to her family and loved them very much.

I see where her daughter has left a post, stating that Janice passed away unexpectedly this past Sat.

Jan. 21st.  My heart aches for her family, and we have lost a truly beautiful friend and talented

crafter.  I will miss you Janice!!!

Date Night

My husband and I went on a date friday evening. We just don't do that enough. We went to see the movie

"Joyful", which I really enjoyed, he said he liked it too, but he knew it would be a movie that I would like.

Then we went to Kohl's and he bought me a necklace and we went out to eat.

We laughed like two teenagers and had a wonderful time. It seems like we stay so busy that sometimes

We put ourselves on the back burner.  What a fun evening! His mom is still in the hospital and is

slowly recovering. Bless her heart this is going on four weeks, and she never complains. She is one strong

woman, a true role model an blessing to me.

New Prims I have made

First I want to thank you all for your prayers for my MIL. She has been in the hospital 3 weeks now.

She is finally improving. She is alert and talking now and not is as much pain. I am so thankful for all

of this. I have a few more prims finished that I have been working on. First I have made a Roundy Bunny,

I used a Bittersweetfolkart  snowman pattern for the body. I then made arms and designed the face to look

like a bunny. I used wool for his nose. I made a prim carrot, with sweet annie for him to hold. He is 14" tall

a big doll, she doesn't have legs, she is 31" long and is partially rag stuffed.

Herbert Rabbit, A Bittersweetfolkart Pattern,
he is 25" tall .

Long prairie bonnet, Civil war looking fabric,
approx. 26" long. My most popular fabric.

Happy Birthday !

Yesterday was my husbands Birthday we had a little party with cake and ice cream for his celebration.

I actually made a totally from scratch chocolate cake for his Birthday. And little Jake had to blow

out the candles. I only put 4 candles on the cake, I left off 50, I didn't want the cake to blow up. He He

 My daughter wrote the most awesome tribute to him on FB, but of course I don't know how to do

all of that linking to FB stuff, rem. me the computer dummy. Well my kids and grandkids adore him.

I am proud of the father and pappy that he is, he never ages, and age doesn't bother him one bit,

He will just say, "Well I am just glad that I made it this far"!

Happy Birthday Ronnie!

Urgent prayer request

Hello Prim friends,

  It has been a hectic week. My husband and my daughter and her family are all battling the flu.

 My computer modem went bad, so I spent 4 days without internet service, so I am so far behind

on blogging.

 Please lift my Mother In Law up in your prayers. She needs a heart valve replacement surgery

really bad and everytime they take her off blood thinners and give her meds to thicken her

blood she developes painful hematoma's. She has one huge one on her stomach now, and

the pain is almost unbearable. She was put in ICU today with her kidneys shutting down.

I would appreciate your prayers for her and her family.

About Me

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.
