Christmas in July

The snowman is from Old Country Cupboard.  The Santas are from Country Whims and the ornaments are from  a magazine designed by Shara Reiner.
I always love the winter season and I try to get as much done as I can for Christmas but I always fall short.  By the time Christmas comes along I'm already pooped out from painting for all the other holidays.  So this year I started early, I started sewing and painting after Easter.  I got a lot of stuff done but waiting for the Christmas foliage to come into the shops.  I'm going to start participating in the after holidays sales so I can be prepared for next year.  Anyway here is a little preview of what you will be seeing in my Etsy shop in the next couple of days.  As always if you see something you have to have you can email me.  Will get more pictures up as soon as my camera's battery charges.
Have 4 new Annies to make pants for so I better get busy.

What I've been up to...

Well I haven't got my pictures for you yet of the Christmas items I've been working on but I do have some of my paintings.  First is a peg plaque of a primitive rocking horse designed by Terre French.

Next is a design from Renee Mullins of a cat and a mystical pumpkin.  It sits on a black vase that doesn't show very well in picture.

And last is another design from Terrye French.  It is painted on a plaque that can be hung on the wall or used in a decorative easel on your bookcase or shelves.

If interested in any of these pieces just email me and let me know.  I will be listing them on Etsy later today.

Sorry for not posting...

for some time.  It's been real busy around here with doctors appointments and dental problems.  But I have been able to get some sewing done.  I've been busy sewing angels, santas, raggedies and snowmen.
I was going to wait until July to give a sneak peek to what I've been doing but I decided to show you earlier, so as soon as I can get some pictures taken I will be posting them shortly.  I have also been doing some painting.
