Valentine's Made In Michigan!!!

WOW is all I can say!! Janice sure blessed me for our swap that Amy hosted. Janice lives in Michigan too. She knew my favorite colors are brown and orange. She made me this primitive awesome doll and I LOVE the colors and pattern she picked. She made the crow and baby cupid too. And a sweet heart that says Hugs on it.
She also included these awesome hearts she made from the material that matches the doll. They are so cool they look like they are frosted. So sweet. I feel like I went to a store and got to pick out these awesome treasures!!!
Janice likes red white n blue. So I made her a set of my new "Kin Folk" in a cool wool plaid. I sure love making these.

I also added these goodies. Janice and I both go to the thumb of Michigan. Me more in the summer and she is blessed by living there. I upcycled a jar from the General store at the museum in Port Sanilac with vintage strawberries. I grubbied up a small year long calender and clipped with a vinatge clothes pin, a wooden heart that I put her and her husbands name on with my vintage typewriter. I got a spoon at the flea market with the name of a city she lives by. The pen is made by Brooke for her workshop. And some coffee and cookies. I LOVED putting this together for Janice!!! Thanks so much Amy for hosting this awesome swap.

And here is alittle teaser of what I am working on right now. My pattern I've been making and re-making!! LOL The material is from my cuzins husband coat from the inside of it that he could no longer wear. And a baby blanket. Oh my goodness it is turning out so gosh darn cute!! I know I will have it done very soon. I get so excited. LOL You know I will be posting pics real soon!!
Love ya all bunches!!
XOXO Fran.
