The weekend is finally here....

Hi, I hope everyone has had a great week.   The heat is finally making its way south, it has been hot, but now it is really HOT!  I have been working on some Christmas items.  This primitive snowman is from a Bittersweet Folk Art pattern, he is  like the large Santa I made. Just love these guys!  I'm thinking alot of snowmen this year.

 I made these very prim snowman, from a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern.  Not sure if I like them, I may stick them in a stocking or arrangement.
 And a gingerbread Annie, using a Sweet Meadows Farm Pattern.  I added a pocket to the apron and a small gingerbread cookie and a wooden rolling pin.  This is my favorite doll pattern to use.
 We went to that little "junk" store this morning, that we like to go to in Lacrosse and I found a few goodies. My friend, Mary was there we got there (luckily she didn't grab that wagon first) and as we were leaving, Debbie (Debbie's Dodads) and her hubby were arriving. It seems We all had the same "great" idea. I found this wagon which is perfect for display, it already had a few nicks and dings, so it was already primmed up for me, a Crow on a wooden shutter decoration (not sure what I will do with it, but I liked it) and a bag of fat quarters (I paid .50 cents for that and already used the red fabric in the doll's dress above) and a little bear.  My hubby even found several things to buy.  More books, he only has 4,000, so what is a few more, keeps saying when he retires he is going to sell on EBAY).
 I also bought some patterns from the Polka Primitive Pig when she was having her BOGO free sale. I made a prim Raggedy  Ann button/pinkeep from the one  of the patterns. I also bought one of the little mammys in can pattern.

I received my copy of Primitive Quilts and Projects today, it has lots of great fall projects. Makes you wish for that cooler weather.  I am so ready to decorate with some fall items.  I hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend.  Cyndy
