Sweet Annie and Watermelon pics!

This is actually 3 Sweet Annie plants, I just took them out of the pot I started them in and planted in the ground as they were. I know they would have been bigger if I would have started them directly in the ground, but not knowing what they looked like I thought pots would be better. They do seem to be growing faster now that they are in the ground.

On another note, I wanted to show a pic of the watermelons hubby is growing. This is the first ones we have ever grown. Jeff always like to do unique things so he found these seeds for North Carolina Giant watermelons. They are getting huge.....this one on the right in the pic is about 18-22 inches long and if I measured just across the top it would be at least 12". The one on the left is smaller but it is catching up fast and they have a long growth time left, yikes! I wonder how they will taste but the package says they are surprisingly sweet.


Oh yeah, from what we can see and count, we have about 12-14 of these monsters LOL

TRP has another free e pattern!

Hey, run to Tennessee Ridge Primitives and get Becky's newest free e pattern! It is a fabulous set of Witch Stockings with Sweet Annie.

Speaking of Sweet Annie, I bought some seeds off of eBay and planted a few of them. If you ever buy the seeds do not be surprised, they are TINY!! I thought for sure I had been ripped off since the packet looked empty. I started them in small flower pots and just got them in the ground a couple of days ago. I know they won't reach their full potential this year since I planted them so late but I still can't wait to see how they turn out. I have been reading up on how to preserve with glycerin so I might give that a try too. To me it would be perfect having my own stash for my crafting pleasure! I am really cheap when it comes to buying craft supplies since the more you pay the less you get back when selling your crafts. Sad but true most times.

Happy Tuesday!

Another week is off and running right along! I seriously wonder where the time goes to. Just to think that Christmas is right around the corner makes me want to cringe. The idea of winter does not make me real happy either! I prefer the heat much more than the cold. Plus all those long dreary days with little sunshine get me down.

I am finding little time to sew and craft, it seems a million things need my attenion lately. I am still concentrating on Fall/Halloween but am itching to get some Christmas items going. Too much I want to do and never enough time! I'm sure you all can relate.

Anyway, I thought I would pass along a great place to buy some quality fabrics at some great on over to thousands of bolts and see for yourself!

TRP has a new primitive e pattern freebie!

Hurry and run on over to and get Becky's new free pumpkin witch crow e pattern. Click on free epattern to get it! She creates the most wonderful items and her patterns are easy to understand and follow even for a beginner.

Well, TGIF!!!!! It's been a long week and I have barely had any time to craft at all. I am cleaning out flower beds that have overgrown out of control. I believe it is time to downsize them into a more manageable mess. Working full time and trying to craft as well as keeping up the housework chores is getting difficult. I am enjoying summer but with it brings so much more to do. Fall is my favorite time of the year and it is coming fast isn't it? I just don't know where the time goes.

Have a blessed weekend filled with all your heart desires :)

Happy August!

Well I have neglected this blog again, shame on me again :( I need to have two of me to keep up with everything I want and need to do in a day. Oh well, maybe when I retire, if I will be able to afford to LOL

I will tell you that my group's launch seemed to be a success and we all had such fun creating Halloween items. We want to thank anyone and everyone who looked, bid and/or bought. I am now working on some Autumn Leaves, and this set is now listed on eBay.

I have run across a wonderful blog with some great craft freebies and would like to pass it along to you all! Go HERE!
