Meet Miss Aggie the Pumpkin Witch

Good evening everyone, Wow , it has been a while since I did a post.  I have been busy working  in the craft room as time is running out for our 3 day show.  Can you believe September is creeping upon our doors?   Our show is Labor Day weekend.

Thought I would share with you a few items I have gotten done this week.  This is another Dee Duncan pattern.  I think Miss Aggie turned out to be right cute.

Here is a close-up of her face .  Love the ringlets for her hair.

Her cauldron holds a tea light.

Another item that will be new for me this year is this Horn of Plenty.  Have made several of these and each hold pumpkins , then an assortment of fall items.

I sell lots of Christmas ornaments, bowl fillers and such as early as September.  Got serveral of these trees ready  for their new homes.

Each one has a different Christmas Song on them.

Well that's about all I have got done so far this week.  Had wanted to be finished by the weekend and clean craft room and take a break for the next few weeks.  Yeah, right.  All you ladies out there who are beginning your busy season of shows, do we ever get done and ready?  It's hard to just quit. Heck, I just got some new patterns over the weekend!!

Thought I would give you an update on Mother.  She is hanging in there but is growing weaker by the day.  She is conscious, but her mind is really bad.  I don't think she really knows who we are every day now.  She is eating well  but it looks just like baby food.  She doesn't realize she is eating,.  Thankfully she has no pain, just says she is worn out, and I know she is.  This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do.  But we are fine, and God is good.  Just keep us in your prayers

Now on to a brighter note.  Holly has had a few rough days getting those little ones use to Pre-K.  After all they are just babies.   Four year olds and going to school, I don't know,.  Guess I am from the old school and to me these little ones are just that ... Little ones. 

However Darbee Rae was thrilled to be back at her school. (daycare).  She has had a wonderful week.And I took her advice and I have sat at the machine and sewed.  But I have really missed my girls.  Every morning Darbee Rae would call me and sing a little song called "Good morning."   I have really missed that and this morning at 6:30 the phone rang, and the sweetest little voice sang Good Morning to her Nana.  Okay, I know , stop the mushy stuff.   Caught  Darbee Rae being silly at the nursing home yessterday. 

If you look close you will see she has her braids wrapped around her ears.  She makes me smile when nothing else will.

Okay all my dear friends.  Hope you are having a great week whatever you are doing.  Some of you are experiencing a break in these hot temps. and I am so looking forward to feeling a little fall in the air.  No matter what you have plans for this week, hoping you are safe and happy.  Thanks for coming by and sharing a few minutes with me.  I look so forward to your comments and love the visits,.  Until next time,,,,,,

  2. Hi Angela,
    Having done shows for 27 years...I agree with you that it is hard to quit making items right up until show time. My house looks like craft central right now...items drying on the dining room table and projects waiting to be finished in my sewing room.
    Love your newest creations...the horn of plenty is awesome!!
    Darbee Rae is so adorable!! Too cute with her braids wrapped around her ears!!
    Keeping your mom, you, and your family in my prayers.

    Sweet Darbee Rae looks like she could play Anne of Green Gables when she grows up. She's adorable!
    I'm sorry to hear that your mother isn't doing well. I know how hard it is and I will pray for you both.
    Oh, your Miss Aggie should be a quick sale for you! I haven't seen any like her anywhere else. Do you have a primitive home?

  9. Hi Angela, Love your new handmades. I should have started my fall handmades after bunny season. I will be doing them right up until time to take them. Open fall houses for the shops is sept. 10, so they need them in about 3 weeks, no pressure, LOL. Darbee Rae is just so cute. Glad your mom is in no pain, sending you hugs, I have been down that road before with my dad. Vicky

  10. You are so right about this being the busiest time of the season...way too many things to do and not enough time to do them in...so sad to hear about your mom...will defienitely keep her in my prayers. Love all of your new crafting goodies...you will do great at your shows. Take care, Janice

  11. This is the first year I'm not doing craft shows, but that feeling of never being quite ready is still fresh in my memory. I bet you do wonderful with those adorable pieces. I love the Horn of Plenty.

    That Darbee Rae is just the most adorable little red headed girl I ever did see ~ so cute!

  12. Your items are just great, hope the show does wonderfully. Still praying for your family. Absolutely adorable pigtails & the cutest smile!

  13. Your little one is just darling...what great memories you are making with her!
