A Great Weekend!

Howdy Folks!
Hoping that everyone is enjoying the sunshine...
it's still a bit cold here today, but the sun is warming it up...
I sure can't complain!!
This past weekend was a good one.
...have you ever had days just 'come together' for you?
meaning, everything that you planned on doing or finishing, got done or finished?
then, unexpected pleasantries followed by having someone get in touch with you about something that just filled your heart?

This past weekend was just that for me.
First, I finished stitching up a little doll and sewing needful ~

doll has a needle punched tulip pocket on the front of her dress~

li'l blue calico sewing pocket that hangs on your wall or cupboard door...

Both are up on ebay now....


Saturday I had the pleasant company of some friends
that came in for a Needle Punch class...
Sharon, Peggy, Pat, Fay and Cindy
(that's Felicia in the background on the phone!)

everyone looks so 'into' their work!! LOL!!!
It was a great class, & I hope that everyone enjoyed it as much as I did!
On Saturday, May 9th, from 10:00 - 3:00
I'll be teaching a
Primitive School Girl Sampler/Cross Stitch class
here in the shop....
If you've ever wanted to learn how to re-create that wonderful old, stained look of early samplers but were afraid to work on linen, come sign up for this class...
I will teach you all of the basics you need to know to complete your own Original Sampler!
It's alot easier than you think!!!, but, bring your glasses if you need 'em!
you can email me at not4got@aol.com to sign up,
or call me at 434-263-6508
the class fee is $35.00 per student .

I'm thrilled at the response I've gotten from vendors intersted in participating in my 1st annual
Gathering of Primitive Friends show here on Sept. 19th.
I'll be adding a list of artists and dealers names to this blog soon!
If you're interested, give me a holler...
so far I have about 10 vendors!
Well, friends, I'm off to the farmhouse to bring in the laundry, sweep the porch and get dinner started...
tonight I'll watch Twilight and sew on a sampler for the Pharsalia show!
Wishing you all a peaceful evening doing just what you want to do!
~Blessed be~

Sounds like a wonderful weekend on your farm, Lori. I love your doll and sewing pocket. Beautiful blues!

Your doll with the needlepunch pocket is just beyond wonderful! Glad you had such a great weekend. It sure is nice to hear some positive comments in this world of doom and gloom. Good for you!!! Dawn

Lori, it's Emily from Hootin Annies...I don't know if you're familiar with my dolls, but I know of you...where are you located? If I can remember right, it's the east coast, right? I'd be interested in stopping in your shop and taking a class, but unfortunately, I think I'm too far away.

I've added you to my blog roll. Hope to hear from you!

That classroom looks fun! I so wish I could join you. :D That sampler class sounds really interesting. I love dyeing and staining fabric. I've done a handful of times and each time I've been happy with the results.

Btw, I forgot to mention from your previous post that I love ticking too. :D I have a whole yard of blue and white ticking.

Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. I love it when things come together like that.

Love your doll and the sewing pocket.

Wish I was closer to sign up for your class and the show.

Many blessings, Doreen

Love the doll & the pocket!

I know what you mean about things comin' together as you hope! I've been very lucky to have some days like that myself of late! I hope today is one of those days... working at home today!

Have a GREAT day Lori!
