Frosty Bottom Farm...

front of the shop...BBrrrrr!!!

...frozen Chickens and Guinea hens!!!

HUGE icicles on the old farmhouse...

Well at least the Sun is Shining and the Skies are Blue today!!!
it is getting gradually warmer as the week progresses, but not by much...
so I'll be calling my little homeplace~

Frosty Bottom Farm !!!!

(cause that's what we all have here...frosty bottoms!)

I'm watching the weather channel like a crazy person, keeping track of the warm temps that (they say) should be arriving this weekend...with the melting of the snow, we're sure to have a mess here...so then I'll just switch the name to Soggy Bottom Farm! HA!

have you voted on my little poll yet about Needle Weaving??
I'm hoping to write a little booklet that will show you how to do it...that seems to be the popular vote at the moment, but I thought a class & a DVD would be cool too....we'll see!!

I'm working on a Needle Woven piece right now, should have it finished for this evening's listing on ebay...it has a little bit of everything included in it...needlework, that is...

Does anyone know how to do Tambour Work?
that's another needle craft that I will be looking into soon...it's like chain-stitching through your fabric using a very small hook...it's a very Colonial-looking needlecraft and I just love it!


Today I'll be creating more things for ebay, etsy,
the Pharsalia Show and the Ghoultide Gathering show...
(I have to get back in 'gear' for making Hallowe'en things!!)
Think I'll bake a loaf of Rosemary Bread too...
nothing like the smell of fresh bread
(especially with rosemary from my herb garden!)
filling up the farmhouse on a cold, late Winter's day....
I'm thinking Black Bean Soup for supper, too!


All orders have been shipped out, so those of you that are waiting for your patterns & items should be receiving them any minute ~ my continued & heartfelt THANKS! for your continued support of my folk art!

***Hoping that Today's Sunshine will melt away your troubles
and bring your spirit warmth and creativity***

I've never done Tambour stitching but I've seen examples of the net lace and on linen towels. It looks like it would be very tedious but worth it. Looking forward to seeing what you make with it.

This is funny. I call my little one (18 months old) Soggy Bottom Baby ~ it's a diaper thing. LOL

Hi, Lori!
We've got frozen bottoms here, too. I can't wait until it warms up but like you said, that always makes a mess and with 2 dogs I know what I'll be doing everyday ~ mopping the floor. I love the way my sampler turned out from your pattern and I for sure will buy more from you. Have a wonderful day and stay warm. Where is the Ghoul thing located? Thanks

Lori, I just found your blog. This morning I woke very early and decided to start at the beginning of your venture. I love it, you are such an inspiration. You make me laugh, your ventures are wonderful and your craft is amazing. Thank you!
