Thanks so much. Yes I was very sick. But I'm feeling much better.

Thanks so much ladies. Also for your patience & organizing "Joyfulclover"!

And Wow all the Boro & slow Cloth patches.  You ladies are awesome. All the stitches & different techniques are so beautiful & I'm sure time consuming, but worth it. I'm going to have to try some of those different stitches.

Well "Happy New Year" everyone!

Hi. I received from "LadybugAndBumbleBees" I love them so much. They're so detailed. They are all beautiful but my favorite is the Butterfly. Thanks so much LadybugAndBumbleBees" they are lovely.

The question about how you like crafting?
I've always love to craft. But now I'm getting older & it's harder to do things. But I keep working at it so my hands don't completely go crippled. It's so relaxing
 for me. I'll craft until I can't do it.

Wow "LadybugAndBumBees" I received these beautiful patches! Thanks so much!!! I  loved them all, but I think I love the Butterfly one the best. So many tiny stitches. Very cool. I have  to figure out where I'm going to put them on & keep adding to it or put them on something special.

Sharalee, I'm on disability so some of my time is my own, which is one reason I was able to get done so quickly.  I also REALLY like handsewing, it's so meditative.  I'm really proud of how they came out, I hope you like them as much as I do!
How nice for you to have your own time to do things that you want to do. I too love to handsew & it is relaxing. Yes I bet you are very proud of it & I can't wait to receive it in the mail. I'm excited to see what you made. Awhile back I made a kind of a rag doll all by hand. I really enjoyed making her. Thanks "LadybugAndBumbleBees"

Oh WOW, lBABB your fast. I've started yours but not done yet!
On the stitches question. I guess the ribbon stitch I really would love to try, it's so pretty & maybe the turkey stitch. I guess I'm just scared to try them.  Cheesy

That cloth patch is such a pretty piece, simple, & pretty colors.

Same here. My grandmother taught me crocheting & my Mom taught me embroidery & sewing. I think I have a piece I first work on somewhere. My  Mom also had this darning wood thing with a ball on top & handle on botton, then you put a piece of fabric or a sock & darn. I don't remember  if I had a hoop or not. When i got my Barbie doll I made her several clothes &  some embroidery one. I made most of them by had. It was easier for me than on the machine, because her clothes were so tiny. I have most of those things stash away away. I was probably 6 or so when i first learned to sew & embroidery & 9 when got my Barbie. Also i didn't use pattern's. My Mom helped me. She was a awesome seamstress she  could make a  garment out peices of cloth or her own clothes & make dresses for me & my Sister. She also could make dresses etc from floor sacks during the 30's & 40's, before my time. So I didn't get one of those. She was a awesome Mom.

"Yeah partners".  Wink
  "Wave back at you"  "LadybugsAndBumblebees" it's has been awhile. I'm so happy that we're partners again & if you want the patches bigger I can do that.
Also ask any questions you want & I'll try to make what would like.
  Cheesy "Averia" also so neat to be partners with you. If you need to know something just ask.

I also love CLM'S pieces & some of you others are great too! I here ya CLM about not wanting to put a price on things. I figured if I can make them fairly easy & have everything, why I should charge so much. I have sold several of my Raggedy Ann & Andy rag dolls. My husband said I should charge more. But I just can't. I've started one of the boro cloth's & hopefully it'll come out alright.
