Some recent projects

Here are some of the projects I have been working on the past few weeks. 
And I just love this lil' guy. My yo-yo Raggedy. He is 8-inches tall to the tippy of his jingle toes. I painted his face and gave him red dyed string hair.  I am keeping him. The rest is for our shows.

These are pincushions with wool backs. They are each filled with crushed walnut shells. All cushies were paper pieced. I love to pp. It is addicting to me. The smallest one's shown are 3-inches. I have about a dozen more I didnt take a photo of. I was on a roll making these babies.

With these, the smallest one's are 4-inches.
 
These are wool and filled with wool roving. They are glued into antique zinc canning jar lids.
 
Here are minis that I haven't quilted yet.

Well you HAVE been busy! Oooo, I love that little Raggedy Andy guy. Yo's are such a neat idea. Do you sell a pattern for him?

Yummy, wish I had seen your pear recipe before I gave away my pears. We couldn't keep up with them, just the 2 of us. Didn't want them to go to waste. Big beautiful rusty looking pears from an old old tree. I've never seen such huge sweet pears before or since.

I like the cooler weather, Angela. I don't like summer heat. But, I do need to be on guard against the weepies. Sunshine deprivation can do it real fast. But, I know that. That makes it a tad easier for me because I can say to myself, "oh, you're just missing the sunshine. Just like you miss T & S & T & P (children and families)." It is no longer a faceless mysterious something pressing down on me. But it took way too many years to figure that out! And it still tries to steal my joy every winter season!

You are doing such beautiful work. Your cushions are exquisite.

Keep up the good work!
Blessings!
Linda

You have done EXCELLENT work (and a lot of it!!!) I, too, love paper piecing. I think it's the kind of thing you either love or hate...hardly anyone seems to be in the middle on that. LOL

Love, love, love the Raggady (Andy?) doll.

Wow, what an accomplishment! I wish I could stay focused long enough to finish some projects I've started. That's my goal for this week.

Where do you get your crushed walnut shells?

Ange, that yo-yo Raggedy is too cute! I love him! How could you keep him all to yourself? Not fair!!! Not fair, I tell ya. Love all the pincushions. You've done a fabulous job, as always. You certainly don't let grass grow up under your feet, girl! Thanks for sharing. xoxo
