For Simply Primitives

Well I was able to finish two pieces for Simply Primitives Nov. 15th update. A Snow Doll hanger and A Ginger Girl hanger/cupboard doll.



Both have lots of details and handwork, hope you like them.

Right now I'm working on a few small things for a friend's Holiday Open House this weekend, then something else for Ebay. I also need to work on an ornament for our TDIPT swap we're doing. I love these swaps and the TDIPT members are the best swappers! For this one, to be mailed the first week in December, we don't know who will be sending to us. We're to include a handmade ornament and bought things based on a questionaire of our likes and dislikes that all the participants filled out. It's so much fun to shop for little goodies, candy, candles, etc. all based on the answers we each gave. As we receive our swap boxes we post pictures in our group forum on Ebay so we all get to oooh and aaah over each other's swap box. I'll let you know who I sent to and who sent to me (along with pictures) sometime in December. I have several things ready and have a couple I'd like to make. Needless to say, we all thoroughly enjoy swap time and sharing in each other's good fortune when we see what our partners sent us.

I need to get back to work, I haven't accomplished much sewing today. My Aunt and I went to the apple orchard to get some apples, I also bought a peck of sweet potatoes for pies, and to bake with some of the apples. Of course we also ate lunch while out, so I just haven't gotten as much done today as I should have. But, we all need to take a break from time to time. I enjoyed mine today!

So, til next time~Diane

Love both of them Diane, but I am partial to snowfolks :) I am sure you will do well with them.

I must get my things in line for the swap too. I have a couple of things already, but my handmade is only in my mind, yet.

Have a great weekend.
