I must admit that I am a huge fan of crafting. I've been creating cross stitch, needle felted, and country/primitive crafts for more years than I care to admit (ok, it's been about 20 years).

A huge part of crafting is having easy access to supplies. I live in a very rural area and prefer to buy most of my supplies online. I have discovered a whole world of craft stores online.

Sometimes shopping at online stores gives my creative juices a nudge and I come up with new ideas. I love to browse through fabric, beads, threads, patterns, and such so I can add to my supply collection. Who knows what I will end up creating from my next delivery.

Christmas in July

We are coming up on the last few days of the Christmas in July promotion for the PAFA team on Etsy. There are lots of talented artists in the group.

I'm busily stitching away on some new patterns for fall and Christmas. Finished 2 new pieces today. One is an adorable Quaker pattern which I embellished with some acorns and the other are some really cute acorn ornaments with beads as the nut.

Hop on over to Etsy and check out the PAFA artists' beautiful items.

Come see the talented artists of the PAFA Team on Etsy

I love primitive, country, rustic things for my home and there is no better place to find these items than from the PAFA Team on Etsy.

Go over to Etsy and type in PAFA and check out all the beautiful pieces these talented, creative artists have made.

I love to craft new/old pieces for my shop.

Scorching Heat in Midwest

Like a whole lot of the country we are suffering with scorching temperatures and high heat indexes.  It's been way to hot to do anything outside so I've put my time to good use cross stitching.  I'm currently working on a piece I was hired to stitch.  Even though it's a beautiful piece, I'm finding that I don't like to stitch because I have to stitch.  At least it's a job.

Stay cool and happy crafting.
