|Crafting With Lillie Mae's||May 2010|
Hello from murky Muncie, Indiana. It's been raining here now for about the last four days, and while we Muncie Hoosiers are all grateful that it is now warm enough to rain instead of snow, we now have mounds of mud instead of mounds of snow.
Mother's day is right around the corner so now might be a good time to start work on those handcrafted gifts that make you so popular with family and friends. And while you're at it, let's not forget the other "special" ladies in our lives such as grandmothers, aunts, friends, etc.
Happy Mother's Day Everyone,
I have a friend, Loretta Mills, who lost her boyfriend of 1 year in a plane crash on Sunday, March 14th. Loretta has had her share of bad luck when it comes to romance, choosing many men who have abused her. This was the first who treated her as she deserved to be treated. She's devastated. Please remember Loretta and her family in your prayers.
If anyone would like a prayer request,
just drop me a note at -

Fashioned after the crinoline lady quilts and the bonnet lady stitcheries, this pattern is beautiful. Sure to be a family heirloom (so be sure to sign and date on back), this pattern is a perfect way to let mom know how much you care. Also a great birthday or everyday way of making mom feel special.
A Mother's Heart
Annie stands at approximately 17 inches and carries her Little Annie snugly tucked in her own little pocket. Little Annie holds a heart in her hands. I had so much fun creating this pattern. For a little fun, the Little Annie pocket could be added to a wreath or other craft project. Attach a ribbon or piece of jute and you have a peg hanger. Or just decorate your shelf or curio cabinet with Little Annie. So many possibilities.
Happy Birthday Jessie Ross
May 11, 1972
Say hello to Jessie.
Here's what Jessie has to say: First I've been making dolls and prim veggies since the fall of 2006. I love it. Sewing gives me a creative outlet and lets me earn some money in the process. My birthday is May 11, 1972. Although I have been told that I don't look 37. Heeheehee.
This is Penny, Jessie's very first design of her own. Isn't she adorable. I find it so hard to believe that this is her first; what a great job!!
Happy Birthday Pam S. in Ohio
This is what Pam has to say: Right now, my craft specialty is 2 yr old crafts. I baby-sit my grandson who is 2 1/2, and he loves to do crafts with Mimi. We do coloring, play dough, various holiday crafts..........his attention span is very short however, so we don't do it for very long every day. That's OK..............he's a sports nut (I didn't think they got that way for quite a few more years), but he always has me playing baseball, football, soccer, and the like. With the bad weather we had in Ohio during winter, we were "forced" to play inside. The rest of my family consists of 4 sons, 2 daughter-in-laws, 1 grand baby, and a mini dachshund. Life is quite active. Pam.
Well Pam...your family sounds lovely. It certainly does sound like your life is quite active. Your grand baby probably keeps you young and fit...what fun. Thank you so much for sharing.
For her birthday gift from Lillie
Mae's Crafts, Pam chose our pattern "Lucy." Jessie has yet to
choose her gift.

Tear Drop Teressa & Kittens
I designed and named this pattern after a friend of mine who loves animals as much as I do. So....a doll crying tears because she has to sell her beloved kittens seemed appropriate. Click on picture to download free pattern.
