Mum's the Word ~

By the look at my herb garden, you'd never know that
Virginia is suffering from a drought....
I have a colossal-sized mum right smack-dab in the middle garden ~
and she is thee most beautiful shade of rusty pumpkin!!!
she has to be at least 5 feet around and is past my waist in height
(I'm almost 6 ft tall)

and take a look at my Sweet Annie plant...
it's almost as tall as our outhouse!!!!
I'm letting it go to seed, so I can have more next year...
I think I could have sold all of it at the show last weekend, but nope>
I'm not parting with any of it!!
:)

I've been stitching on a model for my new Christmas/Winter cross stitch designs:
this one below is called
"Civil War Christmas"

and will be a really simple, primitive design...
I'm using my own hand-dyed (black walnut from my trees) 30ct. linen
& Gentle Arts Sampler Threads.

I have a couple more designs that need to be tweaked,
then they'll go to Felicia, who will stitch the models for them ~

Hope you have a great weekend,
...we'll be here in the shop if you'd like to come for a visit!
Blessings from the Farm,
Lori
