The Kris Kringle Markets of Germany

If you have never been to Germany during Christmas time you need to add this to your bucket list.  Here are some pictures from my trip to the Kris Kringle Markets.  These are markets set up around the center of "old" town sometimes located next to churches that were built in the 1200's; they sell all sort of handmade gift items, chocolates, candles, scarves, hats, and on and on and on...... enjoy the photos and may you and your families have a Merry Christmas!  My New Year's resolution - make more blogs posts and stitch more in 2013......  Linda

New Pattern - Penny Tree Farm

I think I must have come up with the colors for this sampler based upon the way my grass looks this summer from the drought.  Could be worse it could be blue which would mean the snow is flying....  Have a great labor day!  Linda

$8.00 (plus shipping)

Love the frame!

I just love this frame wish I could find a few more.  Sometimes I just enjoy stitching a plain old basic alphabet sampler.........

Never Fix Your Jet Ski in the Garage

Here are some pictures from one of our rentals that caught fire last night.  The neighbor decided to do some repair work to his jet ski in the garage next to the gas can.....in 20 years of having rentals we've never received this call in the middle of the night...."my neighbor started the house on fire".  Luckily no one was hurt and we are now waiting to hear if our side is salvagable (its the unit on right side).

Hot, Hot, Hot

Spent the weekend camping with friends for our Annual Christmas in July camp out.  We went to Lake Perry, Kansas and did a little sail boating, traditional Christmas meal and enjoying the hot, hot, hot   weather........here are a few pictures from our weekend.  I did spend some quality time in the camper since it was so hot and finished a sampler and binding a hooked rug. Hope all of you had a good weekend also.  Linda

From Craft Table to Kitchen Table

Many, many years ago me and my sister did craft shows....and then came kids and shows just don't happen anymore.  So a couple of months ago I am cleaning out my basement and found the table top we would use at our shows.  I hauled the table top out to my husband's shop and asked if he would try and build me a kitchen table from it.....how fun is that......I love it.....

So while he's been working on that, I've been working on a very large hooking project (this is Janice Johnson's from Wooley Woolen - "My World").  I'm only about 1/4 of the way done on mine.

But what I've really been up to is this

The Happy Place!!!!!!  Linda

Two Little Finishes

Here is two little finishes.  The first is a velvet brown pincushion filled with sawdust on top of circle box.  The box has been covered with a fabric that is a brown old floral print.  I've filled the box with old sewing items and topped with a little antique pin that says "pinkeep".    The other item is a mini notebook covered with some old pieces of a vintage quilt.   Both extremely fun to make.....

Floral Sampler

I love this old grey/green frame (4 x10); stitched in neutrals. I wasn't exactly sure what to stitch in it so I just started and ended up with the basket of flowers.   I have to wait to finish because I broke the glass when finishing the back.....hate when that happens.  Will have to send hubby to hardware store tomorrow.  Linda

Velvet Hearts

Finished these hearts about a week ago but haven't had a chance to post them.  They are about 2x2 and stuffed with sawdust...I love velvet....but can't say that it is fun to sew with.   Linda
