Creations In Progress

I visited the shop over the weekend to collect any fall creations that did not sell. While there we decided to remove all my creations that had not sold & start with new creations. I had this school bag made & a few stitcheries to show the shop owner. I left these creations with him & left with ideas for some new creations that his customers have requested. One being the primitive bonnets to hang on peg racks. This not being a creation that I have mastered yet. I am not happy with the pattern I purchased. It just ties & hangs. I want a pattern that will make a bonnet that can really hold its shape & be worn if one might just want to wear it to visit the garden to do some weeding or gather the eggs from the chicken coop. I will be taking the removed creations to the other shop. Rotating my unsold creations from shop to shop will keep both shops looking refreshed & give me a better chance selling.

An angel stitchery to bring a smile to someones face this Valentines.

I have not decided if this doll will be a female or a male. My first time to make this type doll. It has been a lot less work than my usual type doll. Clothes are yet to be made. I wanted to offer a new look in the shops.

I roasted a turkey today for what turned out to be a dinner for two. Lucas went away soon after he & Sam came home from school & Laken left right after she came from work. Laken is still using Moms truck for getting to & from work. So it was Sam & I who enjoyed the turkey dinner. With all the turkey & broth I think I will can it tomorrow.

The kitchen is clean & tidy for now. Time to light the fireplace to get warm & cozy while we watch a movie & I get back to my creations.

Blessings Til Next Time!


  1. Hope all goes well for you, Lara!

  2. You have some wonderful handmades that you've been working on Lara! That's awesome that you can swap them with another shop for another chance to sell, love that idea!

    Roasted turkey sounds delicious, YUM!

    Have a wonderful week, my friend~

  3. I love your creations especially the school bag! Hugs, Lecia

  4. I would love to have a bonnet that would hold it's shape. Good luck in your search for the perfect pattern. -Steph-
