MoRe cRafTinG..& YaRd woRk...

Good sunday morning to you all!!! well I spent the day 2-1/2 hours worth of my day raking leaves..and as I was done..more started to fall..doesn't look as bad but I am waiting to finish up this is easier to rake dry leaves then wet leaves...

it doesn't look this good today..more wind..but it's that much less I will have to do..I think the leaves are pretty too..just not in my yard..and they are not my leaves..I just want them all gone (the trees that make these messes)..cause I don't like having to spend time doing my neighbors work..I could have been crafting yesterday..but it did burn so much that I am down now 67 pounds with 15 to I am thrilled..I also got into some dresses I haven't worn since 2000..and they are 11/12's and they better then the other..but they fit and I have new dresses again..I tried selling these to no avail and now glad they didn't sell cause I really liked them..
after the work in the yard I decided to do some sewing..I am making a cute little snowman and man in the moon..just gotta paint his feet black and do his face and the moons face and we are done..I added spices to the paint and he smells yummy.;)
I ordered some oil cloth and it came yesterday...I love them what does this?...
and this have in common..(they are tote bags)...
I am going to make wood holder carriers with these and sell them at my show.;)will post when i get them done.;)
I sat and worked on this one last night..have the snowflake and letter S to sew on and 2 more designs on either side of the stockings..and the blanket stitch and this one is done..will be doing more sewing when I get home from church today..I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your day...our sun is trying to peek out..good to see the sun.;) welcome to my newest followers..;) have a great day everyone.;)


  1. The energizer girl ! Way to go on the weight loss.

    The oil cloth is nifty ! Can't wait to see the wood carriers.


  2. oh those pesky leaves, but as you say good for exercise...wearing dresses you haven't worn in 11 years, way to go Gina! I love the wood tote...very nice, when you get them in your shop I'll check it out!

  3. Go, Gina, go! You are amazing! Girl, if I had your energy, I'd be ruling the world! LOL

    Big congrats on your weight loss; it takes a lot of determination to keep it up. You're so close to your goal; hang in there!

    One thing I like about living in the country: no leaf-raking. They just fall where they may and I don't have to worry about it. Or, more accurately, Hubby doesn't have to worry about it. ;o)

    Happy Sunday!

  4. Way to burn those calories!!! Yard looks great and those wood carriers look neat! Have a great rest of the day;)

  5. They are gonna be some of the coolest wood carriers I ever seen.
    Great job on the new scarf and yardwork.
    Hugs Trace

  6. Wow. So muvh yard to rake. You go girl! And you may hate those leaves...but likeyou said... bye bye calories! Congrats on getting nto the dresses! That's great.

  7. We have been fighting the battle of the leaves for some time around here....blah! Congrats on the weight loss. I need some of that determination. Blessings and keep up the good work!

  8. Ewwww....I guess that changes things a bit - I wouldn't want to be raking my neighbors' leaves either. Here, we'd just wait a day (or less) and they'd blow away. (Yeah, it's ALWAYS windy here in Nod!) Your wood totes look like they will be amazing - my niece has made them for my DH in the past and we love them....Have a great week ahead! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin (Yay! So far, I'm still following!) ;o)

  9. Wow you were busy. Raking leaves or not, you sure got your craft on ;)

  10. Way to go on the are almost to your goal!! I lost a couple more pounds on the program.

    Love the snowman with the moon and can't wait to see it all finished.

    Have a great week.

  11. You are one busy gal! I don't know how you do it and I know I could never keep up with you! ha ha
    Hubby finished up our leaf/yard work yesterday for the season. Anything that blows into our yard now is going to remain there, he says.

  12. Hi Gina, congrats on the weight loss, you have done great!!

    My yard needs some major attention. You inspire me!8-)

  13. Oh sweet friend, once again it has been WAY too long. Life gets the best of me and my teens kidnap my computer. I have my hubby's laptop now and plan on snuggling in to catch up on you. Sorry to hear about your illness with your kidneys, I will pray for you and quick healing!! Hope all is well, I know your super busy getting everything ready and set for the holidays!! Hubby promised me an iPad 2 with tax refund money, then I can never be behind on you again!! Yaa!!

  14. Loving the new scarf!I can't wait to see the wood carrying tote!Hugs,Jen

  15. What a great idea to make the wool wood carriers! The oil cloth is gorgeous and congrats on your weight loss! Awesome!
