Creating, crafts, gardening, quilting and life on a little ranch.

It seems to me that we have been very busy, and not quite sure with what, but I have had a little time to do some fun sewing.

Owls have been  my projects. I used a free pattern from the internet, i just can’t remember the site, plus I’ve made a few of my own little pattern pieces.

They’re easy and fun to do.

I’ve used fabric for the body and felt pieces for other body parts.

My first two owls were hug owls for two little girls that lost their mom to luekemia over the summer.  I just wanted them to smile a little bit when they saw them.2 owlsThese are the pattern pieces that I used.

20150928_151333I’ve used different print fabrics, Day of the Dead, Halloween and various of pinks and other colors for everyday decorations.

20150928_151616The whole purpose for sewing all these little creature is to enter a fall craft show, and although I haven’t had any luck in selling at these shows,  I will not give up until I sell at least one item!!!♥♥♥♥

It’s been hard to blog lately, life has been a little busy, so it’s nice to start again.

Because of the extreme heat, the drought and all the mountain fires that have filled the air with unhealthy particulates, my poor garden has suffered.

But there was a nice surprise the other morning when I did my morning walk through the garden, there was a huge morning glory flower looking fresh and healthy.  The only thing is,  there was just one big blossom, the others were small.


My magenta colored dahlia keeps on blooming.


And my roses are trying hard to look pretty


We are all yearning for the coolness of fall, and a little bit of rain would help so much.♥♥♥♥
