My Primitive Southern California Christmas part two

                                      This is a Cheri Payne pattern I did a couple of years ago.

                                                                    I love my little snowman rug hooking

 My Baby wolf Loom is under those rugs
and tablecloth.
My daughter promised not to look at my blog before
I am working away on the Sheep for Christmas for my Megan
                                                               Looking in thru the kitchen

                                                I used a old shutter to hide all my dollhouse boxes
                                                full of furniture.
                                                I am hoping hubby will wire more lights in my dollhouse!
                                                I have a quilt I am finishing the sides to so I will then lay
                                                 it across the shutters.

 Jack made the log cabin

Jack made the Dollhouse for me when we first got married 

                                                               My snowman rughooking

                                                Those two dolls on each side of the little black doll
                                                  I made from a JoAnn class I took.

                                                                      Little trees                                         
                                           I enjoyed putting these dolls near my tree just to
                                           remind me of the child like Christmas in all of us.
                                              Merry Christmas to all my Blogger friends

It's just a little house but I like that we both like to make things and that's what makes it primitive to me.

Wow Cheri, your house is just so warm and charming. It looks just like I'm looking at a prim magazine. I really would like to see it all in person. You are very talented. Everything is so festive and inviting. Thanks for the tour of your beautiful house. JB

Hi Julia, Thank you it's a little house 80 years old. It was originally a cabin. Did you notice my sheep. I have been working away on it.Cheri

Julia said...

Oops, I think that I lost my comment. Yes Cheri, I saw your beautiful sheep rug but there was so much to look at that I kind of forgot to comment on it. I'm sure that your daughter will love it a bunch. I'm sure that you'll finish it on time for Christmas. I love the pig rug too. It looks big. Take care , Hugs. JB

Everything looks so lovely Cheri. I especially love that cow on top of the cupboard. When I was little I had a cow toy that walked and moo-ed. It was my favorite toy!

Hi Cheri, everything looks so beautiful! You have made so many wonderful things. I have always wanted to make rag dolls. It is something that is on my list for the coming year. Your quilts and weaving are so beautifully done. Have a lovely weekend ahead and thanks for sharing all the great pictures! Delisa :)

I am so glad you liked my Christmas
decorations. It's fun to work on projects year round. Cheri

Hi Cheri,
I enjoyed "part 2" as well! I really love the shelf with the sheep mold and the creamer/sugar...I love finding those for making my pincushions!
Your log house and doll house, and another I can see on top of a cupboard are wonderful! I have a lighted house made by a local artist and it is so fun to decorate with!
Your quilt looks great and I think your daughter will LOVE IT!!
All the little touches with the dollies really are sweet too!
Thanks again for the sweet pictures!
Merry Christmas~~
