Happy Memorial Day! ! ! !

Well here we are at the beginning of Summer for 2010. I made this large 34" Patriotic "USA Crow Lady" to sit on the front porch or hang on your door for the entire summer. All that I would suggest is not placing her in the direct sunshine.
If you are interested in her, please email me for more pictures.
I have not been creating much for the past 2 weeks. I have been having this dizziness from morning until afternoon. I am now keeping a journal to try to pin point what is going on. I feel it has to do with some of the medication I am on at this time. Any one with similar symptoms email me about yours. I had been feeling just great until all of this happened. Sometimes I wonder if god is just putting me in my place, when I get to cocky about feeling so good. I do thank him all the time when I am having good healthy days. So maybe I am wrong about that.
In the interim I have started working on Fall items and a few Santa's. That Season will be hear before we can shake a stick. Besides, in the Fall I am hoping that I will be making the move down to Vero Beach, if not before. However, there has been no interest in my place so far.
Looks like a Big Storm is brewing here in Central Fl., so will close before I get kicked off of here.
Keep your comments coming, I really look forward to reading them.
Hugs and blessings, Susan

What a cutie this 12" black painted Bella doll is. I will be posting her on LPS also. How about $14.95 for this creation. If you want her, email me. Thanks for your attension, I need to start dinner now. Hugs and blessings, Susan (Cats In The Barn)


Sooooooooo! Inbetween decluttering and depersonalizing my home, I have been making afew new items. Will put some on ebay, but mostly on Lemon Poppy Seeds. Not that any of my stuff is selling these days. But I just keep trying. If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them. I have been trying to keep my prices down with the economy and all.
This 19" USA Farmer will be listed for $19.99. If you are interested, just email me at .
Also, I am trying to show a couple more pictures. If I get it figured out you will see them here. If not, look on the other 2 sites.

Yes I am still having those. It sure beats the alternative.hehehe I went down to Vikki's last week end and we celebrated my BIG day then. Mark (my son-in-law) made my B.D. dinner, Lobster tails, OMG, were they ever good. He even baked me ,gluten free chocolate Brownies. They were marvelous. I sure made a pig out of myself. Oh Yea, not to forget, home made baked custard. What a wonderful Son-In-Law I have.

What did Vikki and I do, you might ask. We were out House hunting all day. Yea! ! ! Great News! ! I am moving down to Vero Beach, that is where they live. Since I am not getting any younger, we all feel it would be a good time to make that Big move. At least I am still able to do all my own packing.hehehe As for my business, none of that will have to change. My computer will travel right along with me. I will stay with com cast, so my email addy should not change. But, my phone number will.

I will keep you all posted as to how things are going. I already have my double wide on the market. Didn't let any grass grow under my feet.

As soon as I finish this blog, I am going to list my 2 Best of Friends dolls, 1 black one not. So check them out: The picture at the top of the page.

Web site is all brand new!

You must take a look at my new website. I am very pleased at the results. Bebe of does wonderful work, don't you agree. I could not be happier. She is the most patient woman I know. Smart too! ! !

Lemon Poppy Seeds is all new for me today. You must take a look at that also.

I am trying to decide if I want to stay with ebay or not. I have been loosing my shirt on there lately. Don't seem to get the visits that I once did. Not sure about that.

If you have any comments, I would love to hear from you.

Blessings to all that read this Blog.

Hugs, Susan

Thought I would let you know what I have been up to lately. It has been a long and hard struggle, but I think I finally have conker my e-pattern quest. I have been trying to learn how to do my own patterns for a whole month now. This little Angel "Miss Tilly" #128 was the first attempt on my own. I must tell you that I have a wonderful teacher that has been so patient with me. You know the old saying, "you can't teach an old dog new tricks", well don't believe it one bit. This old dog is still learning every day of my life.

I am finally getting some new patterns listed on Pattern Mart. I will also be listing them on Lemon Poppy Seeds and my web site. I have many more to make into e-patterns so stay tuned to this station. You can also always email me at if you have any questions or suggestions.

Been a long day, so I am going to wrap this up for now. Will resume later in the week. Hugs and blessings to all, Susan

March is already half over. OMG where does it go.

Hope you all had a wonderful week-end. We are finally having some wonderful weather here in Central Fl. So I worked out in my yard for a couple hours each day. I am getting all kinds of idea's on changing some things around. The fellow that lives next door has been helping me with the heavy stuff. Also digging out some things that got frozen and things that I am tired of. When you get to be a certain age, your body will not allow you to do all of the things you have enjoyed doing most of your life. So you hire it done.

The 2 bunny's and the EGG Make do are now listed on E-Bay at a starting price of $8.95. Hopefully I can get a few bids on this grouping. If things don't pick up on E-Bay, I may just pull out of there for good. I have really been giving stuff away that I put on for bids. A darling black bunny went off this week-end for $ .95. Sure can not afford to keep that up for very long. OH Yea! ! my ebay ID: catsinthebarn*primitives Lots of cute things on there now.


Hugs and blessing, Susan
