Christmas in July Sale on Etsy...and new members

I have posted a a small Christmas in July Sale on a pack of 4 charts. Here is the link to Esty 
We also had some crazy weather go by here the other day and a friend of ours that hatches chickens was in
need of electricity for her chick incubator. So we offered our porch and electrical outlet for her. We had a baby chick hatch yesterday afternoon. Oh it is so cute and I video taped it hatching. Here is a pic of Bob and as I have been sitting here typing we have another. I ran to take her pic to add to this post.

Crazy mini quilts in wool available



I have some crazy mini wool quilts available on Etsy. These are my "Parkits" short for partial kits :)
I only have 8 available at the moment. These are limited to the amount of sheep that I had printed. They are perfect for summer. Small project to get done in a short amount of time and not to big to carry along.
I hope you enjoyed your weekend. I am off to stitch more and will talk to you again soon. Check these out on Etsy with more info there.

I just finished this crochet edge. I took the mini quilt with the 2 grommets that had a hanger , took the rope out, then I took my #7 crochet hook along with some Valdani perle cotton and made a crochet edge of 3 double crochets in a buttonhole stitch then a slip stitch in the next buttonhole stitch. I followed this pattern all around. It was very tight and I had to take a break my fingers fell asleep a few times but I love the look. Since I had the grommets still there I covered them some old buttons that I found in my jar along with strong glue. I then glued it down on the cover of a journal that I have been writing some poems and prayers in.
I am very happy with it and thought I would share.
Have a good night
