Sewing & Crafts


This link shows lots of great sewing & craft projects to use in our homes.... 
This site also has some great free "retro" embroidery patterns" that you can copy and transfer to towels, burp cloths, etc.

This link is for freebie patterns for babies & mommies (been discussing this with Katie this morning)...

Here is a link to some free crochet patterns...

Here are pictures of some projects I've been working on...

With 2 sons getting married in the next 15 months, another son thinking about it, and putting goodies in Amy's hope chest.  I've got lots to keep me busy!

I just found this blog hop on "My Simple Country Living" and thought I would join in...

I love to see what others are doing and to get ideas for cooking, crafts & gardening.  This should be fun!


  1. this can surely be said of you!

    27 She watches over the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness.

    I love some of those patterns! I will be check them out very soon!

  2. Hi Donna,
    Welcome to the HOP! I am so glad you joined in and I am looking forward to your posts. I love your "handmade" kitchen cross stitch picture. I inherited a few old tea towels and I want to make my own using old designs I remember from childhood like the old China and Silver ones My Grandma used to make. Happy New Year!

  3. My sister got a Kindle for Christmas and is wanting a case for it. I told her you got an inexpensive one. Looked up your sight on Black Friday and you didn't really say where you got the padded zip up pencil case for school supplies that worked great for your Kindle. Do you remember what store you bought it at?
    Thank you!

  4. Lana, we got our pencil case at Office Depot. So far, its worked great.

  5. I really like the kitchen cross stitch. I am working on a cat one. Just found your blog. Looking forward to your future post.

  6. Very nice, Donna! You know how much I like embellishing dishtowels and yours are lovely. Thanks for the link.
