Sampler & Frame class ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!

yesterday was our little Sampler & Frame class here at the farm...

our project was a simple little school-girl inspired design on linen,
with a plain alphabet and motifs from the 18th & 19th c.'s.

I love getting together and stitching with friends ~
although I didn't accomplish any stitching, because i was teaching!

we talked, stitched, laughed and made a mess...
(well, ONE of us did anyway, and ONE of us was smart enough to bring a smock!)

don't ask me why I didn't take pictures of their finished frames...
I am suffering from Hay Fever Allergies and my poor little head isn't quite right!
(not that it ever was FULLY right to begin with! ha!)

but believe me, their frames came out beautiful and SO old looking!
....my thanks to Kerry, Carol, Karen, Pat, Joan & Felicia for a wonderful day
and your Friendship ~

right now, it is 6:31 am ~ thursday morning...
I am now going to get ready for our road trip to (change of plans):
Fredericksburg - "Everything Cross Stitch Shop"
Culpeper - "Antiquing"
and then - ????????????
who knows where!!!!

I'll take my camera and snap some fun pics of our trip and share tomorrow ~
have a great day everyone and enjoy these cooler temps!!!

Blessings from the Farm..
