Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day! 
Wishing you all a wonderful Memorial Day! Most people think of this day, as a day to BBQ, the start of summer, picnics, and family gatherings. Please take a moment in your celebrations to remember those that have given their lives for our freedom, and those that are serving today!
Enjoy your day with your family!

It's a Boy and a Girl !


I am so excited! My son found out this week that he and his wife are having a baby girl, and my daughter found out this week she is having a baby boy!  The mommas are due about 10 days apart, so I will have one little girl to spoil, and one little boy to spoil!  These two babies will be number 11 and 12 of my  grand babies! It will be so fun to have 2 more little added to the family! So now I need to get busy, making more baby things for our newest additions to our family~ September and October is when they are expected to arrive, so that gives me some time to get my creative juices flowing!

Watermelons Any One ?


I have been busy this past week, doing some painting for a local produce stand. They are noted for the famous Bogue Sound Watermelon. I had cut and painted these big watermelons about 9 years ago, and they had finally faded and in need of a big time face lift. So I headed off the the farm, and got busy repainting them. the large watermelons will be put up on the buildings, and the smaller ones will be inside the produce stand. So if you happen to be traveling through Bogue Sound NC, stop by Guthrie Farms for the best tasting watermelons you have ever had! Don't like watermelons? Not to worry, they have wonderful produce that you don't want to miss out on!  You won't miss it just look for the big watermelons!

I've picked my paint brushes up again

I hadn't picked up my paint brushes in quite awhile, and then decided for the last PAFA team giveaway to give it a whirl again. Well I can say that I have been bitten by the painting bug once again and have painted a few new things! By no means does this mean that I'm not going to sew any more, but I am going to work on doing both, so that I have a wider variety of prim goodies to offer. Here are a few of my new things, I hope you enjoy them as much as I did painting them!

Happy Mothers Day

Mom to Be Savannah

Daughter in Law Jessica, Adam, Owen and Natalie

Daughter in Law Mother to be Jessi, and Bo
I want to wish everyone a very Happy Mothers Day! I have been blessed with 9 children, and I will say it has been the hardest, but most rewarding job that I have ever had! We have had good times, and bad, and went through our ups and downs. We have seen each other through the tears, heartbreaks, joys, marriages,divorces, births and deaths. I have tried to be the best mom that I know how to be, and I have made many mistakes along the way, for that I ask for your forgiveness. I hope each and everyone of you know that I am so very  proud of you! I would/will do anything in the world for you, and will always be there for you. My love for you is uncondtional. Thank you all for giving me the most precious gift of your love, and of course for giving me my beautiful grandchildren! Happy Mothers Day to my daughters, and daughter in laws!

New Addition to my Primitive Baby line

I was so excited when I found this Soft In The Head pattern! She is called Story time Edna, a Mother Goose look alike! I just had to get the pattern to go along with my other Primitive baby decor! I just finished this one up and listed her on ETSY. I am making another one for my daughters babies nursery. The nursery will be done with mostly prims. We find out on the 19th if she is having a boy or girl, please keep your fingers crossed for a healthy little girl, I have 8 grandsons and only 2 granddaughters and 1 of the two lives out of state. I will be happy with whatever we are blessed with, but sure would love to dress up a little girl in ruffles and lace lol.
