It Has been Busy here at 'Running Quail Ranch'...

1 comment:
It has been so very busy since we got home from Southern California... and just have not had time to visit here on Blogger... but it's quiet for now,,, so I will try to play catch-up.. A lot of Joy and Saddness has visited us and our family and some dear friends this past month ,, but Faith keeps us strong.... We are having some remodeling on this old house of ours done and celebrating several birthdays.... plus I am waiting for Spring to really show up so I can get going on my garden and pull my 2 vintage trailers out of the barn. Gary and I hope to be able to put our Motorhome to good use this summer as well, fingers crossed. Here are some fun little projects I have been working on... sorry the photos are not all that great,,,
I made this Yoyo table topper from vintage feed sack material for a swap challenge..
I found this pre-cut cork material and turned them into a pair of earrings for a friend.
I made a upcycled Jean tote bag for a wonderful High School friend.
Then I made several Yoyo flags for banners... which some will be sent to friends... I think I might need to make one for one of my camping trailers... Both Gary and I have had our 1st COVID vaccination,,, and will get our 2nd one next week... but we will still maintain distancing and wear masks... and Washington state will be opening up the vaccinations for all age groups by the 19th of April... much to our relief,, now our daughter will be able to get hers. In the meantime,, until this pandemic is past us world wide.. we practice staying safe and we hope you will stay safe too.

Busy Hands equals Cute Projects...

While staying at my mother's Palm Desert home,, we listed it and got it sold and now we are vacationing in Palm Springs until mid-late March. In the mean time,, to keep me busy while the Contractors are here working on the house... I have been keeping busy with some hand sewing..
I worked on a mini cross stitch project and I have been crocheting dish rags, some I have already handed out.. and my favorite,,, yoyos... I have some more cotton yarn to crochet a couple more dish rags.. and I have a few more mini cross stitcher kits. If it were not for the COVID-19 pandamic.. we would be out all over Palm Springs getting into mischief, but Thank Goodness for the lovely sunny warm weather.. Happy Feburary to you all.
