Finished - and Sold!!!!

The latest barn is finished - and, wonder of wonders, it promptly sold!  And....even more amazing....it could have sold twice over.  Still reeling from that one!  





Now, if I could only sell the crazy quilted one I'd be definitely over the moon!  

- THIS man does amazing metal sculptures!

- There's a really cute pincushion featuring wool applique  tutorial/pattern HERE.  

- I rather wonder if the sloth is going to be the 'new' rage?  At any rate, there's a free pattern for a really cute one HERE.  

- A pattern HERE to make a handy garment bag.  

- THIS would be a handy organizer (instead of using an old Pringles can like I do!).  

Today's quote is from Eleanor Brownn..."Clutter is not just physical stuff.  It's old ideas, toxic relationships and bad habits.  Clutter is anything that does not support your better half"

Congratulations Mary Anne. I'm not in the least surprised to hear the Barn sold. Your ability to create so realistically is fantastic.
I love the Header, which is a good advertisement in itself.

That is a fantastic old farm barn. I love all the details you've stitched, including the fence (the perfect farm fence). Congratulations on the sale of it, you've found a niche in the market, well done.
