NEW~~~Primitive Doll, Rag Balls, & Stitchery Pin!

I had an idea today and not many customers, so I just went ahead and did it! I wanted to make a stitchery pin for Spring and this is what I came up with. I came home and dipped it in coffee, put it on the floor heat vent to dry, then sewed the backing on and stitched a pin back on. Finished! Click on the photo if you like it enough to buy it! (shipping is FREE!)
My etsy group is having a Spring Celebration that starts tomorrow and I signed up to enter two items. My first offering is rag balls and Easter eggs. I used my thrift store styrofoam balls and eggs and covered them with various fabrics, then coffee stained them. Great bowl fillers, or put them in a primitive Easter basket!

My second item for the Spring Celebration is a primitive Annie doll to hold your grocery bags. Her dress has log cabins on the fabric for all of you suffering from cabin fever! It also has sheep on it and I gave her a sweet grunged terrycloth sheep all for herself. :)

The Spring Celebration items will be available in my etsy shoppe on Sunday. Sorry, I ain't allowed to list them before then. :)
Our group also has a Spring Giveaway worth over $400!!! Check out the blog for Olde Farmhouse Gathering to enter the giveaway!

Hi there, I finally got to re-post Meet Bessie on my blog for another reason. I was the one who was trying to get my attachments of pictures of her to email correctly. I was having problems. Anyway, she is back on my creative blog. Come check it out and let me know what you think of Bessie. Thanks

Oh girl, I just love all your work and wonderful ideas! I love rag balls, they are my very favorite thing to make because they are so quick and easy. I always feel like I actually accomplished something when I make a batch of them. He he! I never thought of making rag easter eggs. How clever! I will have to try that out.

Dolls are one thing I have never attempted to make. I would rather buy adorable ones like the ones you make!
