New Projects, Shopping and .....

Hi, hope everyone enjoyed their Easter, we had a nice quiet one.  The Easter Bunny still leaves my son (who is 19) an Easter basket.  I enjoyed the extra day off.

We went shopping yesterday, to my favorite store, Hobby Lobby, of course.  I bought some more material, some of which you'll see later and a metal folkart chicken. My hubby collects folkart pottery pieces, those ugly face jugs, so I started collecting the pottery chickens, they are currently being displayed in pottery display, so I don't have any pics of them.  I found this guy half off, and he just had to come home with me.

 I bought these plates several months ago, the top center one, I picked up yesterday, it is also metal and half off.  My pottery pieces also go on this cupboard.  I got this cupboard from my grandmother before she died, It is one of my favorite pieces.
 I have had a lot of requests for Christmas items, so thought I needed to get started on some ornaments, got some little Raggedy Angels, cats on a ball and other Raggedy ornies done.
 Also, made up a little gingerbread Annie, using some scraps that I had.  I have searched all over for more of the gingerbread fabric and finally found some on EBAY, hopefully it will be here soon. I found the old coca cola crate at an antique shop last year in Georgia, for $12.00, it works perfectly for displaying items.
 I made up one of Sweet Meadows Farm bagholders, these have been good sellers for me the last 3 years, the gingerbread is especially popular.  This is little one will be on her way to her new home tomorrow.
 And last, but not least, I made up a teacher doll, using a Chestnut Junction pattern,I have had several requests for occupation dolls. I gave her a blue plaid jumper with a white and yellow print blouse that has little blue flowers, added a wooden book and pencil that I have had for ages, now I need to find a source for wooden books, gave her a pair of wire-rimmed glasses and she's ready to go.  I have been wanting to put a pair of glasses on one of my raggedys, finally did it.  The other doll is an Oh Sew Dollin pattern and I used more of the same material.
I hope everyone has a great week, bye Cyndy

  5. Cute dollies, and always a good idea to get a jump on the holidays. Yeh, our kids got Easter baskets into their teens, but then they got "too old" for that... LOL.
