Burlap & Cotton Creations

I'm sorry I'm not giving much more than a glimpse of some  the things we are busy making right now, but we are so busy getting ready for our craft show that this is all I've got.  I'm trying to use up my Scrap Stash and raise some money for my daughter's upcoming 4-H trip too Japan.  I have lots of burlap, but I also love the texture and look of it too. This wreath isn't completely done, but I can't make up my mind on how to finish it off.

We made two sets of Silent Night pillows.  Is it bad to want these for myself and hope they don't sell?

What do you think?  Should I use a simple bow or a large ribbon to hang the wreath?  Thanks for your suggestions.

Mr. Right Cans!

I have to give a shout out my very awesome Mr. Right!  He spent his Sunday canning!  Yes, you read that right!  When Mr. Right asked me what my plans were for the day, I said that I wasn't quite sure what to do first, since I had so much to do, he volunteered to take care of the canning, so I could do more craft fair projects.  He got 14 quarts of pears done and 17 quarts of apple cider.  (We spent the day yesterday with friends making 50 gallons of apple cider, so we have to pasteurize and can them this week.)
 While Mr. Right was busy in the kitchen, my daughter and I got a few more things finished for the craft show.  Here's a star ornament that we made.  It is double sided, so when it hangs on the tree, it will look good from all sides.
Now we are trying to figure out prices, oh, and will be canning the rest of that apple cider this week! I'll be sharing with all of my favorite blogs listed in the right hand column.
