Is it Friday, again?

It's Moody Monday
by Prudence

Bet you're thinkin' "oh no, she is going to post more than once a week?"  Nope, it won't happen, but maybe every now and then.  So, it's now time....
Just want to show you what we've added to our Etsy Shop (I say "our" 'cause Mom makes the things and I do all the posting).
This is what we added...oh, before I show you I have to say Mom has really stepped outside her box, she never made anything other than animals, and to tell the truth, she is having fun.

Just a little heart hanging
Carrot Top, a wee little bunny (yes, she had to do an animal - actually two....
And another heart, this one she calls Strawberries and Hearts
We have more ideas for another bunny or two but we are waiting for a supply of eyes.
Have a beary good week and I will see you on Friday.
Hugs,
Prudence

Don't forget to mark your calendar for

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

Hi Gang.
Well, it's been real quiet around here, and real cold.  I mean COLD!  Last January we broke a record, it was -3, and I find this so funny to say, but it was only 5 one morning last week . ♫ "Heat wave, we're havin' a heat wave, a tropical heat wave.  The temperatures rising..........
Oh boy, I need a vacation.
Okay, Mom continues right on track with finishing up some UFOs (UnFinished Objects).  This is what is going on in the craft room....
NEEDLE PUNCH
This is her first needle punch project.  The kit is from Vermont Harvest Folk Art by Doreen Frost.
"I enjoyed this, instructions are extremely detailed and I am glad that I choose one of Doreen's kits as my first project.  As you can see, it still needs framing."
*************
English Paper Piecing (miniature quilt)
Mom's very dear and sweet friend, Cindy, (in Westminster, CO), sent her this kit.  Cindy introduced Mom to paper piecing, and has sent her several bee-u-tee-ful kits for mini quilts.  I will show them to you in a later post.  One still isn't started.
Ready for the backing which will be the solid red fabric.
Below - first starting.

Heaps of Hugs and have a wonderful weekend.
Love,
Prudence

Projects 2015

It's Funny Friday
by Prudence

New year, new beginnings
Mom started this little guy a trillion years ago (yes she did - a TRILLION).  Thinking the head would be the most difficult she did that 1. 2, 3 - which shocked the mohair out of me.  So, or should I say "sew", she continued, body (good) arms (oh no), she wanted monkey hands but that wasn't going to happen, so - just arms, (good), legs - they would have to have the opening at the ankle 'cause she has to attached the monkey feet OH NO - monkey feet?  Really?) Legs (good) and now the feet. Oh boy, the temper tantrum began - I mean, throwing monkey parts on the work table, stomping out of the craft room, frustration I tell you - dangerous (for us) frustration.  So, she did the only Mom thing she could think of - pack him away.  She really did - for years.
A few months ago she posted about him and was going to finish him - yeah, like that happened.  Here we go again - she can't get the feet the way she wants them so she needle-felted them and as you can see, not bad, not bad at all - peace and quiet - no tantrums, and ONE monkey foot - but....we need another one just like the first one.
I leave you here, I need to get back to helping her with that foot.

Heaps of Hugs

"LuLu?"
"Yes, Flora"
"I need to laugh out loud" 
"Yeah, what a stupid lookin' monkey is that?" 
"We need our own scream room!" 
"Flora, stop, you're making my side hurt from laughing!" 
"Well all of me hurts 'cause of laughing" 

P.S.
Almost forgot, we have just posted a bee-u-tee-ful piece of mohair in our Etsy Shop

It's New Year's Eve
by Prudence
Mom?
"Yes Prudence, what is it?"
You had to deck the house, now you undeck it all, smarthy pants!
"Prudence, watch your mouth or I'll pack you away with the decorations."
Ha, like I'm shiverin' in my mohair? NOT!
You're just a grouch 'cause you have all that packin' up to do, maybe I should call you the 
"Christmas Packin' Mama" hahahahahaha.
"Shut up Prudence."
What?  You used THE word, shame.

A very Happy & Healthy 2015 to all our friends and their families.
Heaps of Hugs
