Heart of Ohio Farmgirls - New Chapter!

Calling all farmgirls at heart in the central Ohio area (or anywhere nearby).......

Do you love the farmgirl way of life, even if you are a city dweller like myself? There is no farm ownership "prerequisite" to be a farmgirl or to be a part of this chapter - as Mary Jane Butters says, being a "farmgirl is a condition of the heart." You may own a farm, a small piece of land or even live in the city and dream of such a space. If you love to cook, do canning, sew/stitch, garden, do herbal based projects, other fun crafts or anything farmgilry, then this group is for you!

I just started a farmgirl chapter here in my area called the "Heart of Ohio Farmgirls". In this chapter, we will be doing just about anything farmgirl and doing many fun activities together, such as a variety of field trips, sew-ins and slumber parties, just to name a few.

If you are interested in becoming a member of this funtastic farmgirl chapter (even if you just have questions for right now), just let me know. E-mail me at:

Hope to hear from ya :-)

A Pinkeep for a Farmgirl, But Who?

Over at the Mary Jane Farmgirl "ranch" we have been working on a mystery swap by creating a pinkeep. Here is mine that I worked on this weekend. I was inspired by project that was included in a new magazine by the publishers of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine, called Studios - A Spa for the Creative Soul.

It is made with three large Yo-Yos (the smaller one on top is stuffed to form the cushion), and is topped off with a lovely button.

I am looking forward to surprising one fellow Farmgirl with this pinkeep creation!

More Dolly Company

I just wanted to show off my new dolly "companions" - Miss Nellie Ann from Kentucky (created by my farmgirl friend Frannie)....I just LOVE her red hair :-)

While at my little farmgirl "Cabin Fever" retreat, Miz Frannie gave us a little dolly makin' class. Being new to this new creative venture I am very happy to present, Theresa B. Beeze (named after my co-worker Theresa Brooke who died last year from prolonged complications from breast cancer (the Beeze part of the name comes from the bumblebee pattern sewn on her pocket).
They both sit watching over all of the happenings in my craft room and esp. look after one white furry cat who roams about.
