GARDEN PUMPKIN class
this Saturday Sept 20th @THE COUNTRY LOFT!
We will decoupage, use cheesecloth, moss, dried flowers, burlap,twigs
and top one off with a Burlap Bird...
you will make two!
Come and create something fun for
so fun to look at fabrics and paintings and notecards and clothing...
if I could do wallpaper in ALL of my rooms...
I would CHOOSE these!
I so LOVE
birds and flowers and vines and colors...
I must get sketching!!!
(all were found on Pinterest)
I took a class the other day at
THE COUNTRY LOFT
and learned how to make a
PUMPKIN TOTE BAG.
(Susy awesome teacher!!!)
It was so fun to make!!!
I have made two more and put my own designs together...
I don't usually use my sewing machine, but this has been such a fun project
as you get to hand stitch and then machine sew...
and coming up with different designs makes each one special.
They are lined inside and have a pocket too!
A perfect gift for someone, I can't wait to make other colors!
Are you the
of your Garden?
It has been pretty hard to do any gardening in this HEAT lately!
Trying to water while in a DROUGHT and with 80+ temps out, it is not easy!
I made this apron a few years ago from a placemat with BEES stitched on it...
I added a canvas pocket to the front and stamped
QUEEN BEE OF THE GARDEN
on the front,
then added a cute rusty bee to the top with some BLING on its wings and some pretty
lace up the sides
PINK lace and POM POMS along the bottom of hem for FUN.
A pretty green satin ribbon to tie at the waist...
pinned to the side and of course a
PACKET OF FLOWER SEEDS
I like to think I am the
of my garden,
but lately this QUEEN BEE is praying for
RAIN AND COOLER WEATHER!
I am not really a vegetable gardener
but do LOVE fresh vegetables!
I planted two small tomato plants in my herb garden for fun this Summer...
AND OH MY GOSH
they have taken over!!!
I caged both of them
but they keep creeping and creeping and are just gigantic plants!!!
Tons of green ones are still ripening...
I love just popping them in my mouth throughout the day!
At least my little herb plants have been sheltered from the hot sun!
I guess I have found a good spot to plant my veggies ;))
Have a SUNNY weekend!
Aren't they CUTE!!!
Be CREATIVE today!
