~ Coming Attractions ~

It is so very hard to create winter/holiday-themed folk art 
~ when temps are in the high 80's!
 but, I am....
and making goode progress I might add!

for those that live on another planet,
this is the show that I'm in the midst of creating for...
{{click *HERE* for more info}}

 and here are just a few of the offerings I will be bringing with me ~

~ plenty more punching, hooking & stitching to go,
plus lots more to 'finish-finish' ;)

I'll keep you posted on my progress.

~ Upcoming Class ~

 Good Morning Friends & Folk ~
and happy Wednesday to you!

is it really October the 19th?
I mean...
was it not just June and I was teaching 
at Ye Country Mercantile in Sturbridge, Mass.??
where does the time go....

 I wanted to pop in here this morning to remind my preregistered students 
that this coming Saturday is Class day for the
Dimensional Black Cat Paddle project!

if you already have a punch needle and hoop/frame, bring them to class with you.
{{your supply fee will be lower}}
for those who don't already have a punch needle/frame/hoop,
I have them here for you to purchase.

what to bring to class:
a happy disposition & sense of humor. 
{I'll supply snacks/lunch/drinks}

~ class begins around 10:30, but come a little early ~

this class is FULL ~ 
but I will be offering more punch needle classes in the near future 
and post them as soon as I get my Winter 2016/2017 schedule going.

**Please Note**
There will be NO 'Crafty Saturday' this saturday due to the class,
BUT if you're in the neighborhood and want to come shop, please be our guest!

~ Little Stitches Handwork Club Model ~

 Hello Friends & Folk!
Finally I have a chance to post photos 
of the finished model for the Oct/Nov/Dec 2016

"There's no Place like..."

the sweetest word in the dictionary ~


my beautiful model was crossed stitched by the talented & able hands of friend 
Beth Wiksen
{many thanks dear!}
and I finished it into this sweet cupboard hanger, 
... shaped like a house with a wool appliqued roof.

~ Previews and Ponderings ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!
oh how I love a chilly morning here on the farm ~
Peter lit the woodstove for me to take the chill off this old farmhouse...
~ what a wonderful feeling to see it lit and smell the familiar tang of woodsmoke once again.

I wanted to take a moment before I begin my day,
to share with you a few previews of things-to-come;
while I was in Connecticut I received the model for the 
Oct/Nov/Dec Little Stitches Handwork Club
from sweet Beth who stitched it for me ~ Beth, your stitching is beyond perfect!
Thank you so very much once again :)

 Please forgive the tardiness of getting this quarter's kits out  ~
 I am running a tad behind on things since spending much-needed time with family up north.
here are just a couple of peeks:

Members of the LSHC will be receiving their kits in a few days ~
I yet have to put this model together and show you the 'finish-finish', but I think you will love it as much as I do when you see it...

If you would like to join our Little Stitches Handwork Club ~ or renew your membership,
you can click *HERE* 


Secondly ~ while visiting up North
I had a relaxed time with family, which allowed me to complete a few punch needle projects...
here are a few photos of them just waiting to be 'finish-finished' again!

Angels & Cats seem to be a 'thing' with me this year


and, Last but not least....
while on my way home from CT I stopped in PA at the Black Rose Antiques Mall...
{I swear my car has a homing-device implanted in it and it just 'finds' these shop!}
 ~ while on my way OUT of the mall, seemingly with no luck in finding anything ~
I turned to say 'thank you' to the shop proprietress and spotted this box:
of course the red-over-green paint appealed to me from the start...and the size is perfect too,

 but when I lifted the lid to find this I nearly swooned ~
there was a tray with tiny compartments! oh boy....

 and as if that didn't already clinch the deal for me to buy it,
I lifted out that top tray to find another!!!!!

I was squealing like a school-girl when I lifted out the second tray
and found yet another compartment at the very bottom!

I have always kept a basket of needlework supplies on our coffee table
in reach of my stitching chair and for those moments of impromptu stitching....
but now I had found THEE perfect box to hold ALL of my stuff!


of course, I emptied the now overflowing basket out,
and placed all of my hooking, punching & stitching accoutrements into the hand-hewn trays...
I have to clean the bottom-inside of the box a little better before I can place my weavers cloth, 
wool & calico fabrics in the very bottom.

Score one for me!
of course this will stay here in the farmhouse, and not be lugged around with me on my travels...
{{{as much as I do want to show it off "in person" to the world!}}}
 my pink-toolbox will be my traveling companion, as I shared with you in a previous posting ;)

 Well folks, I am off to the shop to process orders and ship them.
Thank you to all who continue to support us & what we do..
I'll be back soon again with more creative fun, finishes & Big News!!

yes, I have changed my blog to a new header & background.
...in my mind I am getting prepared for the long, cold Winter ~ 
so I added a gentle snowfall for you too...
