Ideas Keeping Me Awake

Do any of you have the same problem as me when you go to bed? Your mind is racing and you can't shut off your brain! The funny thing is I get most of my creative ideas when laying in bed trying to go to sleep!! Ha! One good thing about that. 

Well anyway...I have a few new items to show you! These Snowman & Tree Make Do's are one of my favs to make.

Can't stop smiling when I look at these snowmen!

And here is another amazing piece I made from Stacey Mead of The Goodewife Pattern. 

The idea for this one did not come to me when trying to go to sleep. I was reading Stacey's blog. When I first saw these deer she had posted I instantly thought of placing them on this piece of tree bark my neighbor had given me. He had brought home a big truck load wood from a tree that had been cut down. He splits his own wood for his two wood burning fireplaces in his home. I spied a couple pieces of big chunky tree bark and asked if I could have them. Did not know what I was going to do with them, but hoped that in time I would figure something out.

To purchase this wonderful winter deer display, check out my etsy shop here ---> Rock River Stitches

Oh and I have a pattern for my big new Snowman from my last post!!!
It can be found in my Etsy and also at Pattern Mart!

So until next time...Peace and Love to All!

*~New Snowman Design~*

Happy Election Day! Got my vote in last week. 

I've been so busy sewing up Christmas goodies! I have a couple more new items listed in my etsy!

I have a pattern for my Santa doll and I'm thinking about making a pattern for my standing snowman as well.

Don't forget to follow me on Facebook and Instagram. I tend to post more updates as to what I am doing on those more than on my blog. You can find the links on the right hand column to follow me.

Went to visit daughter and her hubby a week ago in Des Moines. Love traveling through the middle of Iowa. Nothing but farmland. I like to play with my camera while riding down the interstate. Sometimes I can get a great photo like this one! Love the horizontal and vertical lines.

It was just a pretty day! A little overcast but that's OK. Can get some amazing cloud contrast that way.

So until next time....Peace and Love to all!
