I don’t have too many flowers around here but I do have some.  I can not believe next Sunday will be July.

I have not done any crafts lately. Just at a stand still I guess. I see some of you have been really busy and whipping up a storm! Me? I got nothing! I keep thinking I will start something but hasn’t happened yet!

Meet Mud E. Bear

My  maker  Pamela Dervarits  from  Our Pioneer Homestead  took  this  first  picture  of  me while  I  was  patiently  waiting for  someone  to  come along and  see  how  sweet  I  wa s which  in  this  case  was  Mindy.  Pamela,  Quebec  Folk-Artist  and Artisan,  resides  in  the  Montreal region.  I  was  then  safely packed,  Pamela  believes  in safety  first,   and  boxed  to  be carried  off  to  Iowa.


I  was  so  glad  when  I  arrived.  I needed  to  stretch  and  was excited  to  meet  my  new owner!   Mindy  and  I  had  a  nice visit  and  we  decided  we needed  to  take  some  photos to  show  Pamela  I  would  be very  well  taken  care  of  in  my new  home.

Here  I  am  just  chillin  on  the front  porch.  I  bearly (yes, I spelled that right)  got  on  the sofa  and  Mindy  snapped  my picture  before  I  could  even   sit down!

It  was  so  comfy  I  decided  just  to  lay  down!

Here  I am  in  front  of  the   window…

Then  we  went  outside.  Here  I am  posing  by  the  pretty flowers!

Before  I left  them,  I  wanted  to see  if  the y  smelled  good…

Mindy  said  I  did  such  a  good job  posing  for  the  camera  that I  could  have  me  a  piece  of  pie!  Hurry  up  Mindy,  take  the picture  so  I  can  dig  in  before  it’s  all  gone!!

I  think  I  am  really  going  to  like it  here!

Don’t  forget  to  stop  over at Pamela’s,  she’s  one  talented lady,  after all,  she  made  ME!

Finished Punchneedle Projects

pcp 1052

Here are a couple of Brenda Gervais punchneedle designs I finished.  I haven’t put a backing on them mainly because I’m not sure what I want to do with them yet.   All I know is it’s so much fun making them!! The first one is called Dear Adel and the bottom one is Herbs In My Tea.

A Day in Roca

pcp 10701

Went to Sweet Annie’s Primitives Spring Sale in Roca today with Joan. It was a great day! I love what they did with their building out back, making it look like a log home.

They had these beautiful flowers there, aren’t they gorgeous! I just love the purple!

Yes, I found some treasure there! Three wool army blankets,  the off white one is a piece of a blanket but still quite large and I got them at a great price! I was wooly, I mean really  happy!!  It’s hard to see their true color in the photo.

Then we ventured on to Twila’s Log Cabin. She was having a big sale today. Every time I have gone to her shop I have drooled over this small Shaker fruit basket but just couldn’t afford it, well today it was marked down and believe you me I latched on to it in a flat out minute!

I bought some fruit at the thrift store awhile back and threw it in there!

So I am quite pleased with my purchases! Yeah me!!
