~ Something Special ~


Good Sunday to you all 
Friends & Folk ~

I've been wanting to do this for a while now and have finally done it!
I have listed the remainder of my printed Folk Art Notecard sets in my Etsy Shop :)
{link is above}

below is a smattering of the 39 different designs available...




These are the notecards that you've seen published in the much-beloved, 
but now defunct Country Home magazine AND are the very same designs that my sweet & talented friend Kris Miller at www.SpruceRidgeStudios.com adapts for rug hookers for me!

I'm offering them in sets of 6 {same design} with matching envelopes ~ 
in LIMITED QUANTITIES
~ so when they're gone they are gone.

~ AND ~

I have also decided to open club memberships again to our
Primitive Punch Needle Club {1st kit model shown below}
for those who have asked to join....

CLICK HERE to JOIN!!!!!

I am happily punching away on design #2 for the club kit, 
which will begin shipping in November ~
I'll share some previews as I get time :)

Hoping you all have a wonderfully creative & Peaceful Sunday!

~ A U T U M N ~


... And then it was.


and I am ready ~

 

I'll once again prepare my old farmhouse
~ for the coming cold months...
 


... and remember the important things. 




I'll savor the colors & scents of this season ~

 

and keep them in my heart
for another year...

~ another turn of the Wheel.


... trying to stop time to enjoy it's swift passing,
before my beloved Autumn is gone again.


and feed my soul with it's beauty and bounty,
and hold close the memories that will be made 
... with my needle & thread ~
and of friendships and family.


it's true.

Happy Autumn, 
and a Blessed Mabon to you!

~ Looking Ahead ~

 Good Wednesday Morning

a beatifully-overcast day is on tap for us...
a perfect day to fire-up the slow cooker with some lamb stew 
~ and I think I'll bake some apple hand pies for dessert...
I love when the farmhouse is filled with wonderful scents from the kitchen, don't you?

As the month of September winds down, and with the first full day of Autumn being tomorrow,
I have been sketching ideas & creating for the upcoming Winter shows & events on my schedule...
