What I Have Been Up To Lately??


 Hi Sweet Fiends!!


I hope All of you are enjoying some cooler
weather, now that we are coming into Fall.
I know some of you are still have some rather
hot weather though.

I have been pretty busy lately making different
things.
I made this beautiful Satin flower cuff bracelet
recently, for a friend of mine, who loves pink!

 I wrapped the cuff around this vintage jewelry
roll. There are tiny accordion pockets that
expand and a larger zippered compartment.
I put little charms, crystal drops, a watch face,
and other little trinkets in each pocket for her
too!

To the right is where I keep some of my ribbons
and trims! Little fabric books..etc!
 My newest Indian Maiden bag was a Birthday gift to a cherished friend of mine. Marilyn loves the Native Americans so much. She was so excited about the cowgirl bags and Indian Maiden bags I was making, to Help the Lokota Indians in S. Dakota, so I knew just the present to gift her with!!!
 This was a little stuffed doll that my friend had made. It was her very first one she made and when she stuffed the poor little doll...well he did not live up to her expectations...She called called him her little baby hulk!!
She had sent me a picture of little baby hulk...and I told her I could fix him up for her. So when I received him, i took one look at him and knew just what to do!!


I made little levi overalls for him, I little shirt
and bandana too!! I have a few of these cute little straw hats, and so stuck one on his head...he is no longer little hulk baby...My friend received him back from me...and was totally shocked by his amazing transformation!!!  She now calls him..Farmer Pete!!!





I love the backside of him...Don't you??


Well Friends...let me know what all of you have been up to lately, ok?

Miss you  and Love to you All!!  Susan xxoo

  7. Susan, I had not seen this. I usually don't connect you with blogging, but I've added you to my sidebar list of storytellers so I don't miss anything.
    Love the cuff and crazy about all your goodies. What fun we'd have as neighbors. :)
    Thank you for stopping by the shop. I think the blog will have to do for now as far as that witty book, but it sure sounds like fun. :)
    MUAH!!!!
