the farmhouse is toasty-warm from the woodstoves...
scavenging for dropped seeds from the feeder...
I think they're so cute,
they look like they're wearing little tuxedos....
a beautiful cardinal stops on a snow-covered branch
to open a black sunflower seed...
my surroundings are constant inspiration
for my needlework designs,
I never lack for something new to create...
I am working on a few new punch needle designs,
& a couple of new cross stitch designs
(previously, I shared a snippet of Brown Egg Farm with you all)
but Felicia & I have decided to collaborate on a
Friendship Sampler ~
one pattern that will combine 2 samplers...
we will choose from the same color pallette, same motifs and same size linen,
we will design our own friendship sampler to share with one another,
and to share
in time for Valentine's Day!!
((I'm looking forward to starting on this))
I have finished the free pattern project for the
Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine,
& I want SO Bad to share a pic of it with you!!!!
(but I'm sworn to secrecy!!) :))
so if you haven't already signed up for your subscription of the magazine,
please click on the link on my sidebar...
I'm heading out to the barn,
Pinnochio & Daisy are hollering for their oats, too...
...have a beautiful snow day!!
