Good Morning Friends!!!
We've started our morning here on the farm bright & early!

For some reason, our Roosters (we have 3)
have decided to start crowing about 4:00 am lately...
don't believe what you hear about Roosters only crowing at daybreak.
I don't think they can tell time....
what the heck will we do Sunday morning with the time change?

Anyhooooo ~
I've finished up two projects for ebay:
this is a wool pouch to hold your Punch Needle and Threaders...
(or other sewing needfuls, or make-up, or glasses, or....?)

...and this is a pin pillow that can hang from a peg or cupboard door.

Both are my original designs, and are just so Spring-y !

I'm still working on that needle-weaving project that I told you about, I'll have that finished early this aft & will show you then....
I'll be framing that piece,
(I'll paint it, but have to decide what color)

Now I'm heading back to the farmhouse to have my fruit & yogurt...
the little hens are starting to brood,
so we should be gathering plenty of little pullet-sized eggs soon!
(Hmmm...could THAT be why the Roosters are up SO early?)

Have a *SPARKLING* day filled with all things inspiring to you!!

Truely loverly pieces (as always!)!
And, on the rooster, you're right! They don't know time ~ or light! LoL We had one that would crow randomly thru the nite! 11pm, 2am, etc...but RARELY at sunrise! LoL
Have a wonderful day!

And no kidding about the roosters...ours ALWAYS start in SO early!

Those are beautiful Lori, really Springy! I would love roosters and chickens, but I doubt whether my neighbours would be very impressed at being woken at 4.30!
So looking forward to my parcel.
