Firstly we have Joanne R. She has made pillowcases and this has immediately convinced me to make some myself from the vintage sheets I have saved up. This could be good for in the hot weather that we will no doubt have pretty soon. I love these! What beautiful gifts. (and lovely colours)
Joanne also worked crochet edge on kitchen towels...
Your photos are beautiful Joanne thank you!
Debbie completed an amazing rug. It says "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine..." which I find you cannot think without singing the words!
This is for someone who loves that song as it was sung to them as a child. What an epic project Debbie it is wonderful!
Rosanne was crocheting. She made this rug as a gift. The pattern just amazes me and I would love to learn this! I have a lot to learn yet!
Patsy has been practicing both crochet edgings and grub roses! Well, she has them mastered! Take a look over at her blog post on A Working Pantry. I am s proud of you Patsy! Considering all the things you have taught me I am so glad I could help you with something!
Leigh made gorgeous earrings and a pendant using little shells. I think these are beautiful..
Melissa K made Christmas cards... reminding me I better get going on some too! These are stunning...
Rachel is stitching the Song of Moses from Deuteronomy. She will know this by heart after this! Beautiful stitching Rachel.
Jane achieved many things. This is amazing...
A lot of us could use this idea on an old cushion or chair!
She also made a bonnet for her Grand daughter and bunting for her room. And this Angel which went to hospital with Bluey! I hope this reminded him of all the prayers that were going up for him and the angels watching over him...
Jen in NC knitted socks...
And made mittens for her daughter. Look at the detail in these! Month by month I can see Jen's present cupboard is full of lovely things!
Stunning work as usual Jen!
She also made Roseship Syrup from the British WW2 Ministry of Food Brochure called Hedgerow Harvest. This is full of vitamin C. Jen I would love to hear how you made this!
Thank you all so much! I am terrified I have forgotten someone... I am feeling rather disorganised. If I have it is not intentional. All the beautiful work that you do is amazing.
As we have been talking about alternative incomes we have a lot of examples of skills here that are both money savers and also potential earners. If we think about it we may well have skills we don't even use that we could revive. I think we need a change sometimes too but it is worth thinking about what are you really good at and yet haven't used that skill for a while?
Today I am off to see Hilde, shop at Aldi and go to several op shops. Also go to a wonderful fruit and veg shop on the way. I am hoping for a good day and great finds! This will also keep me from watching the election coverage and having potential heart failure!
Cookies husband is home and all is well!
Patti asked for prayers for her brother Billy. Patti if you are reading this is a message to you from Cookie. She says many states have a programme run by DAV (Disabled American Veterans) where they will pick up and take veterans to medical appointment and bring them home again. She thought she would mention it in case this could help. Thank you Cookie! xxx
Patti I have been praying for Billy. xxx
