Cleaning House...

Hi Folks!
....not literally cleaning MY house today,
but cleaning up this blog a bit....


I have SO many favorite websites and blogs
that If I was to put all of them on here it would be three miles long!

So, I am opting to keep only current, active blogs on my sidebar from now on...
if your blog was removed, it isn't because i don't like you or your not my 'friend' anymore
...it's simply because I want a less-cluttered look to this blog...
thanks for understanding!

I also changed the background and my header...
it's so much more easier to read now, I think...what do you think?


So here is my little wip ~
it doesn't have a name yet, but it will be for the Loudon County Sampler Guild class
that I'll be teaching in October...



a small, simple pinkeep being of Autumn design~
all I have to do is stitche the border and do the finish...I'll show pics later on this evening.
I will be offering kits for these, so if you'd like one, please let me know ~

AND
for those that have asked for an "Iggy Update"
here he is:



he is growing into a handsome, long-tailed, spindly-legged thing!
he flies around the house, hiding and pouncing on anyone(thing) that crosses his path.
he is a bad boy. he is a good boy.
he is a little lover and a little fighter and has surely become King of this household!


(I thought the sepia toned pic of him was so pretty!)

it is SO hot here...our poor chickens are panting~

~ the katy-dids sound like they are too tired to chirp
...a s-l-o-w scratching noise they make lets you know that the day will be a hot one....

~the dogs have been under the house porch for days, only coming out for food
and a dip in the creek out back...


and I
have been here in the farmhouse,
putzing and stitching in the AC!!!


Hoping you all have a wonderful Summer day ~

(((eat more Ice Cream!!!!))))


Blessings from the Farm...

The pinkeep with the crows and pumpkin looks really cute. I'll be looking forward to seeing it finished.

Your new blog design is lovely.
Can't wait to see your new pincushion design all finished. I have a "fondness" for pincushions so I'm sure this one will be on my wish list.
