In my spare time....

I love to collect sewing items ~
pincushions, especially....

I love thread holders
needlebooks
pinkeeps
scissors
make-do's
and

old glass head pins.


if I can fit more on this little cubby I will !
I love how eveything just goes-together....
the colors
textures and how everything on there
makes
me
smile...

old motto samplers, the more stained, the better..
simply pinned to the wall
make my heart sing!

and little pockets made to carry perhaps
needle and thread ~ for projects on-the-go.

tiny hanging pinkeeps that can be used for ornaments as well
speak to me from stolen moments gone by ~

These things please my heart well.

AND speaking of things to make you smile,
Stacy Nash has emailed me with photos of the class project that she'll be teaching here in August!!!
I'll post them here asap....
(all I can say about the project is ~~~~~~ WOWOWOW!!!)

hoping you all have a wonderful day filled with things that make you smile!
Blessings from the Farm...
Lori

Love, love, love your sewing room Lori! It has provided me with some much needed inspiration to do something to my sewing room. I love the display with all your sewing goods. I hope you will continue to show us more areas of your sweet farmhouse. It is always such a delight to visit! '

Wish I lived closer...I would definitely be down there for Stacy's class and of course to visit you...sounds like it will be wonderful!
