I have finally decided to start selling my items on ebay and one Item I really wanted to finish is an awesome quilt pattern from Meme's Quilts. I had received alot of compliments on this and hope it can find a home and get finished for the holiday season or gift giving.
If you are in need of great gifts and don't have alot of money- who does right know? I have alot of items that I have not advertised for sale yet. I have lots of holiday towels for kitchens, primitive and country pillows and a great americana selection of mini quilt tops, embroidered quilt blocks and so much more. Just email with what you might be interested in and I will get you pictures and prices. The towels, I am selling right know for $5.00 plus first class shipping. You can't these prices at your local Wal-mart. LOL
I love this time of year for many reasons: Family Time, special picture taking events, holiday parades and handmade gifts. I love to give.

Decided to finish a few more projects from the garage this past weekend. Hubby does my framing for me and does a great job. Son in Law and daughter also help with some items, I will post the shelves later this week. We don't do the glass with these, they look more primitive without(I think). Drop me a comment with your opinion. I have samplers galore to stitch out. From Northwoods decor to sheep and primitive sayings. These designs can be framed,pillows,wall-hangings or some even stitched up on a fall sweatshirt or summer tee.
This is only a sample of the items I have ready made in stock- look for these on my webshoppe soon.

Are men more difficult to buy gifts for than women? Yeah sure they are, unless you lucky like me to have men that love wildlife, fishing, boating, hunting and being a grandpa. We always make handmade gifts for our dad's birthdays and fathers days gifts. This year we were running a tad bit late but wow were they worth the wait. Embroidery Library has some wonderful designs and I have access to them for all of our embroidery design needs. These towel sets will retail on my website for around $25.00 plus shipping. Different color options will be available in the towels as well as thread colors.
My son in law came to me for help. They have a family reunion each year. To help offset the costs of renting the hall, they have a silent auction to raise money for next years party. What a great idea. I made three different gifts for him to take with. Toilet Paper Embroidery is a great inexpensive gift and so are bath towels. They are very popular gift giving ideas. So if you are in the market for gifts, be sure to stop by here and my website to get some ideas. We can customize a basket if you like, TP, Bath Towels, Soap-or kitchen gadgets, candle,towels or table runner. Handmade gifts are approriate for everything from Weddings, Anniversaries, baby Showers, Family Reunions and so much more. Let me help you create that one of a kind, unique gift that they will love.

This morning my husband and I went out the front door and in the backyard we saw these amazing wild turkeys. Of course, we ran back in the house, grabbed the camera and Galen snuck downstairs and out the door to take a few snapshots. Our son and son in law are avid turkey hunters and Galen has taken a liking to the fall hunt too, if the weather has cooled down. The boys prefer Bow Hunting, galen prefers his turkey shotgun. I myself find that embroidering turkey designs are a real challenge, with so many colors, I appreciate seeing the real thing and refer to them often for help when stitching out my wildlife animals. I do the same with deer designs, I run downstairs and at the head of the stairs is Galens greatest whitetail hanging there. I study the colors well and enjoy when I can take time to embroider wildlife.
Enjoy the pictures

Our DIL recently graduated with a 4 year bachelor degree in Agriculture Science. She has been in FFA since a little girl. Along the way she collected and saved her t-shirts. We were going to learn how to make T-shirts quilts together but I couldn't wait for her and the busy schedule she has. I decided to start the quilt without her and create a wonderful surprise for her graduation party.
WOW what a surprise it was. Everyone kept the secret very well, she had no idea and the quilt turned out so very nice. A friend of mine Debra Ward quilted it for me and did a fantastic job. More to come of these. We have about 5 quilts to make and I will take you through each journey along the way. I will finish these between my regular embroidery orders/business.
What a great way to share your memories-tshirt quilts are warm, can be hung on display, put in a quilt rack or laid out on a bed.
The pricing starts at $10.00 per block and depends on the details. Give it a try, contact me if you are interested in these great memory makers.

I decided to think outside the box or roll? What do you think about this? Drum Roll or Toilet Paper Roll, please. I will be selling these soon online. What a great idea for someone who has everything? I bet they don't have these? Many small designs will fit on these rolls, just trial and error- if it doesn't work, we just tear it off and try again.
