{ Needle & Thread }



my needle and thread have been soothing me these past few days...

I've dulled yet another punch needle and have lost (again) my needle threader!!!

{the picture above shows some of the needle punched tinies I've done today...waiting to be stufed full of spices & made into little pinkeeps for my picturetrail update on November 15th~}

...creating with thread keeps my mind focused,
yet helps me to wander my thoughts into another place & time
...the future!
ahhhh yes, I am in full-throttle Christmas mode!


...as some of you are just beginning to undecorate for the All Hallow's Eve past,
I am already thinking of gathering fragrant greens from my woods, drawing up new holiday cards, designing a few new patterns
and making ornaments from wool scraps...

How soon do you all start to ready your homes for the Yuletide Season?
I will have family here over the Thanksgiving Holiday,
and I always want to have the farmhouse decorated in some way...
not toooo Christmas-y,
but nodding a hint towards the Holiday just the same....

so I'll hang just a couple of crazy quilt stockings on the mantle in the keeping room,
and perhaps bring in a small balled fir tree & place it in a pot near the dining table....
one single strand of twinkle-lights, a couple of wool mittens on it...

~ Simple Farmhouse Christmas ~


I don't ignore Thanksgiving, I just try not to commercialize it.
it is a day to gather family & friends...
reminisce, remember and keep alive the good cheer from past days
while creating new memories for the future.


Hoping that you're all doing well, getting your warm cozy homes ready
and enjoying a simple life ~

That's the best blessing of all.


Peace & Plenty be Yours,
Lori

Since our youngest was born on Dec 5, I usually would wait til after his b-day unless putting up decorations was something he wanted to do on his day. But that was when he was much younger...so just after Thanksgiving I'd start. This year I will prepare early as I have our womens group from church coming on Dec 2nd. We are supposed to have a few nice days comin' up so I'm seriously thinking about hanging greens/lights out front while it's nice!
Love the little creations there! Can't wait to see what else you have in store!!

Constance said...

I just love the tinies, sewing is soothing. It's the rythum that brings about the peace I think, my grandmother always said that hand mades were magical because there was a prayer and hope sewn in every stitch. I believe that is true.

Blessings,
Sallie

Those are lovely new pieces. I think that I better learn how to needlepunch very soon! I'm like you - I don't like to commercialize Thanksgiving either. But I do like Christmas and usually put up my tree the day after Thanksgiving. We always go away for Thanksgiving so it saves me trying to decorate too early.
