Getting Crafty...

Today I tried my hand at crafting.

Sewing to be precise.I had seen over at the Mary Jane's Farm website..a call for farmgals to "thread their needles". ..for a "Pinkeep Contest" (pincushion)

Well, I came up with a really cute idea last Thursday and bought my supplies at our local Hobby Lobby and sketched my pattern out.

Today I created my little pinkeep, took a photo of it and it is now amongst the photos of other "pinkeeps" that no doubt will put my little attempt to shame. was fun none the less, and an item that I can offer through my shop at

Here is a photo of it, because I know you all just won't forgive me if I don't show here it all of it's humble glory...

"Tie one on!"..yep..a little Apron Pinkeep. The little pocket can hold your needles, while the other part can be poked with all the pins your little heart desires to poke it with.
Oh I have other ideas now too of course..but this was just "sooo farmgirly!"
Let's see..what else got accomplished today..
I added lots of my friends blog links to this site...
I baked a yummy peanut butter cake this I needed cake...NOT! ..but I wanted to make absolutely sure that the recipe I sent out to alot of my farmgirl friends was actually correct in the equations..and it was.
So now there is a big peanut butter bundt cake in my kitchen..I'm sure that between all of us won't last very long.
My little "Quackers"...Daisy and Daffy duck are doing great..the silly when they get hungry..they will peck on my back'd think I didn't feed them..but they are FAT ducks.
They forage for weeds and also get mash to eat twice a day, plus have a big tub of water to drink and splash in..but then of course..they think I am "mama" I think too they just like to see me.
Oh that reminds me..speaking of ducks..there is a darling looking movie coming out soon guessed it..."Duck" about an elderly man and his pet duck..and the duck featured in the movie is..a Peking Duck...
who knows maybe I can train one of mine to become a Hollywood Star!
I can just see it now..a big webbed footprint on the HollyWood Star Boulevard..ha!
hmm..gotta get those ducks some bangles and baubles and decorate them up pretty....
" we come!"
(ok, ok..maybe things are getting a little too quacked up around here...ha)
Night folks. Have a great evening.
Thanks for joining me in "blogland"
