{ a little Shaker Wisdom }

"...Say not to the Friend, there are weeds in your Garden...
when thine own is choked with the Same;
but rather look at Home...
-the Youths Guide in Zion
"If you would have a Lovely Garden,
you should have a Lovely Life..."
-The Gardener's Manual, 1843
""the happiness of our Whole life depends
on the cultivation of a Good Disposition..."
-Alice Chadwick, Enfield, Connecticut

Dear Friends...
it will be Spring in just a few days...

I, for one, cannot be happier this year for it to arrive!
soon we will be planting our Gardens with herbs, flowers & vegetables...
waiting anxiously for the first shoots to appear.
my Lilacs are budding & my Daffodils are now ready to bloom...
and the little birds are readying their nests.

I will begin my spring-cleaning this weekend,
sweeping out the winter from attic to basement
and out the door!

Creatively, I am working on the models for the new punch needle designs..
I'm hoping to share them with you this week.

My THANKS to all of you who have purchased the new cross stitch patterns!!!
I'm already oon my second printing, and all initial orders have been shipped!
woohoo!!!!

Hoping you are all thinking spring thoughts and going through your seed catalogs!
Blessings from the Farm,
Lori

Hi Lori,

I love these sentiments !

One of my favorite sayings this time of year is:

"In the Spring . . .
At the end of the day . . .
Your hands should smell like dirt."

Enjoy the dirt,
:-)
Lori Ann

That's a great idea Lori! Today would be a great day to get winter swept out of the house! Sunny and 60's for the next few days, so energy is high! Looking forward to seeing your pn designs!
