I wanted to show a few things I have been working on over the last several weeks.

I have made a few pumpkin dolls to sell. Farmhouse Prims, hit the link to email me to purchase

or if you have any questions.  First I have two stump pumpkin dolls, they are inspired by a

"Sweetmeadows Farm" pattern. I am asking $36.99 each plus shipping.

Next I have two standing pumpkin gals, inspired by a "Happy Heart" pattern, I am asking

$29.99 each plus shipping.

Last I want to share two Mammy dolls with babies that I have made, inspired by "Chestnut Junction",

I am considering keeping these for myself, but not sure yet. Love how they turned out.

Wanted to show a recent cross stitch project, pattern by Joyce Reed, love it!
I also want to share our July Christmas gift from our grandchildren Cole and Riley,
I enjoy opening the envelope every month and seeing the photo's, their little notes and surprises.
Christmas in July for sure.

The Texture of Life

First I would like to wish everyone a safe and Happy 4th. of July. I also want to share a video with you,
"the Texture of Life", The Tusing Sisters of Branch Mountain.
It is approx. 28 min. long, but if you have time please watch it, especially if you love the
simple things of life. And if you like weaving, coverlets and things like that.
The Tusing sisters farm is not very far from our farmhouse in WV, I love driving by there farm whenever we are in WV and I visualize them in my mind when they lived there.
 They were also contacted by the Smithsonian in Washington, DC concerning their weaving and coverlets. My dad said he remembers them well and that when he was young they would allow him to hunt on their property. I also went to school with their one niece and she has bonnets and aprons that they made her as a child. She also owns one of their coverlets.
 And one thing that is so neat is that the preacher, Rev. Harold Emswiller, pastored a church here in Timberville. He has recently passed away, but a few years ago I met him. I said are you the pastor that used to go have church services with the Tusing Sisters of Branch Mountain, yes, he said, " I am the one". Enjoy this video, it is worth watching.
