I just listed this new bagkeeper....all fruity and blue. Someone was talking to me about doing different color bags, so here is one! In person, this bag is stunning! Really! lol I love that fruit motif fabric that I scored (at a very expensive quilt shop I might add!)--I couldn't help it, the fabric just spoke to me. Anyways, it is really pretty and I think the bag turned out wonderful. If it is talking to you, it can be had at my Etsy shop.
We just found out that Etsy is almost ready to launch it's new, updated version! Yeah! Shopping will be easier, with a shopping cart, and I have perfect confidence that the brilliant minds behind Etsy will NOT disappoint. BUT that means that the site will be down next weekend. I just wanted to spread the word, in case someone goes to shop and finds the site down...don't panic! lol They said that they think they should have it up and running by Monday. I'm so excited!

Here is one of my newest listings on Etsy. A very Victorian looking Santa, the image is taken off of a vintage postcard and transferred to fabric. I handstitched the image to a felt heart and then stitched it into a little heart shaped pillow, adding beads to each stitch. I really like the old fashion feeling that these colors impart...I did a little twist on the traditional colors. I used the regular bright red, but then used a sage green instead of the usual hunter green, and a cream color instead of the usual white. I sold all the ones from the first batch of these already, but have a new batch ready to go. LOL I went and rented a few new movies (I like to do all my hand stitching while "watching" movies!) and got the felt hearts all cut out and bought the beads I need. So Linds and I are going to sit and have a movie night and I'll see how many I can get done! Sound fun huh? Till next time then, take care everyone.

Yeah, I love Etsy and the need to create is very strong in both the young and the old and everyone in between.

PECANS IN THE CEMETERY
On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big,
old pecan tree just inside the cemetery fence.
One day, two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts
and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began
dividing the nuts.
"One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me,"
said one boy. Several dropped and rolled down
toward the fence.
Another boy came riding along the road on his
bicycle. As he passed, he thought he heard voices
from inside the cemetery. He slowed down to investigate.
Sure enough, he heard, "One for you, one for me.
One for you, one for me." He just knew what it was.
He jumped back on his bike and rode off.
Just around the bend he met an old man with a cane,
hobbling along. "Come here quick," said the boy,
"you won't believe what I heard! Satan and the Lord
are down at the cemetery dividing up the souls."
The man said, "Beat it kid, can't you see it's hard
for me to walk." When the boy insisted though, the
man hobbled slowly to the cemetery.
Standing by the fence they heard, "One for you, one
for me. One for you, one for me..."
The old man whispered, "Boy, you've been tellin' me
the truth. Let's see if we can see the Lord."
Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence,
yet were still unable to see anything. The old man
and the boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the fence
tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse of the Lord.
At last they heard, "One for you, one for me. That's all.
Now let's go get those nuts by the fence and we'll be done."
They say the old man made it back to town a full 5 minutes
ahead of the kid on the bike.
Smile, God Loves You!!!

I have my first craft show of the season this weekend. I am doing the usual "OMG I don't have enough stuff done" panic thing, LOL. Actually, I spent the morning washing and ironing the tablecloths and doilies that I use in my table display, and going through my boxes of completed crafts to decide what I will bring. Come to find out, I have plenty! As usual. Of course, I will be bringing some of the things I have listed in my Etsy shop, so if there is anything there that you have your eye on, you might want to go and get it as it may be gone. I am looking forward to it. I share a booth with a friend and we haven't seen each other since the last craft fair season...so it will be fun to catch up.
I just listed this new bagkeeper today...isn't it neat? I have had this idea about doing a "Mom's Diner" thing in a retro cafe looking motif for a long time, but I couldn't find a fabric or pattern for the center panel. It finally dawned on me to see if I could design my own using my graphics program...and here is the result. I purchased some of that special printable fabric and printed it out on that and sewed it to my project. I really love how it turned out! Swing by my Etsy shop and check it out...and make sure to see the other new things I have there. You know there are new things being added often, so don't be a stranger. Have a great day!
