"Spring Blessings" Pillow and Monday Marketplace with Farmers Attic!

A new pillow for Spring to help with those winter blues! I've combined my favorite hand work which is stitchery and applique to create this 6" by 8" pillow. I will be donating one of these for the OFG Spring basket giveaway.....more information to follow for entry.

I would like to introduce Lucy Galgano from The Farmers Attic! Look at the wonderful Valentine creations and the black bunny.......................he is so cute!!!

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?
lucy43g a.k.a. The Farmer’s Attic. (Need to open a new shop with the name Farmer’s Attic!)

2. How long have you been on Etsy?
Since December 20, 2007 but only really started adding items to the shop in October, 2009

We have a variety of items from home d├ęcor, primitives, vintage, fabric, quilts, pincushions, holiday, seasonal, handbags, heirloom items, etc.

4. How long have you been crafting?
I think I have been crafting all of my life. I learned a lot of sewing at a very early age by watching a dear lady sew clothing and curtains while she babysat me over the summer months. I also taught myself to knit in the car after visiting and watching a relative in North Carolina. On the way home to New Jersey, I had two rattail combs and some yarn that she gave me and I learned to knit during the long car ride home. I think I was about 9 or 10 at the time (I’m now 51!)

5. Who or What inspires you?
Fabric, fabric, fabric. I love the textures, colors, feel and flow. Also, lots of magazines and books (I’m a book hog!) and now I have the internet!!!!!!!!!

6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?
I love my pincushions. There’s just something about them that make me happy. There is such a variety out there today and I want to have one of everything!!!
