Happy Saturday!!!!

I woke up this morning to the sounds of my sweet farm...
donkeys braying, sheep baa-ing, roosters crowing....

...Oppossums begging for food!!
here are Petunia, Flo & Herman...
I swear they've doubled their size since last week!!
(thank you, sweet husband, for taking care of my 'babies' while I was away)
and after I fed everyone,
I came in here to my seewing room to find this:

"Samson", our resident WOol-CaT,
sleeping in my old potato basket that I use for snippets...
(Sam has freckles...you can see some of them on his nose & lips)
while I was in CT,
I stitched up this little Peacock Sampler,
"My Needle's Work"

it is available as a pattern ~
$8.00 + ship
you can order directly from me,
... just email me at not4got@aol.com
I love the colors in this one,..so simple & old looking!
I will be listing this on ebay & etsy, too...
I have a ton of patterns waiting to be charted, as I told you last week, some of my older finished designs will now become charts...some hallowe'en designs, some everyday designs...
Look for them SOON!!!
and lastly,
I have thee most gorgeous pictures of ancient gravestones that I took in CT ~
I will post them tomorrow...
Well Folks,
I'm off to cut my grass...yes, it's been over a week now.
I'm doing much better
(see previous post on lawncare LOL)
Have a safe & *SPARKLING* July 4th Holiday!!

Blessings from the Farm,

Hey Lori, Sorry we missed you last week. Pam and I both were looking ot for you at our Farm Tours. I guess you got busy with all that you have to cram in such a short visit. Maybe we'll see you next time...Bright Blessings, Dawn

Lori from Notforgotten Farm said...

So Sorry Dawn & Pam!
I really did mean to get to you both...time was so short.
I promise I will see you both soon!

I have to tell you I love the names you have chosen for your animals, they go so well with them !! :-) The opossums are so very cute !! Aren't opossums mean or is this just an idea somebody got in my mind? I am not familiar with them and they sure look harmless in your hands :-)
Love the little Peacock Sampler and look forward to your new patterns.

What a great pic of the 'possum gang!!They are such benign creatures - part of Nature's clean-up crew.
Your peacock design is lovely. Can you adapt it for hooking??:-)

Great shot of the babies. Love the new pattern and will have to have it.
Peacocks are a favorite of mine.
Welcome back.

Lee Morrison said...

Hey Lori! So glad you're back! And what sweet babies you have! They're names are perfect!

I love your new peacock pattern. I'll definately have to have this one!

Take care!

moosecraft said...

Those little possum are startin' to look like See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil! LOL! Cute little mischief makers! :-) I really like the cross stitch piece! I'm thinking that would look perfect stitched to a blue ticking pillow... I'll be ordering the pattern soon!

Your little babies are so cute. Never words I thought I'd use to describe those critteres!

Kitty looks very cozy.

Myriam said...

The best place in the home is where the cat is!!!!
Your babies are so lovely!

from me to thee......... said...

well Lori, I will have to admit, it would be hard for me to warm up to possums....I think it says a lot about people (in a good way !) who love animals so much.....LOVE the new pattern....smiles, Linda
