A Giveaway!

It's that time again Folks!
in appreciation of your kind words, support and friendship ~


and for just putting up with me in general...


I'll be holding a Giveaway for one of my
Harvest Pickin's Pinkeep Kits!!!


all you have to do
is leave me a comment on this post
...and you'll be in the running to win ~
((of course, if you'd like to blog about it or post it on your sidebar, that's ok too!!!))
the drawing will be held on Wednesday July 20th...
and I want to Thank you to all of you who have ordered this little kit!

Good Luck!


I pulled the GAST threads for the new
Christmas Adam & Christmas Eve design,
and it is now in the nimble hands of Felicia (otherwise known as Flea)...
she's stitching the model on 40 Natural Brown Linen from Wichelt.
She is probably thee fastest stitcher here in the south and I can't wait to see it....
I have a beautiful frame in mind for it too!


Speaking of frames,
I've been asked to offer my finished hand-painted frames ~ and will start offering them on my picturetrail website soon ~ these are pine frames that I purchase, but then I paint & severely distress them....if you follow my work, you've seen them on alot of my finished items, but I will have pictures of them for you soon ~

AND
my sincere THANKS to those who have purchased the custom made frames for the Witches Garden Sampler and the Salem Village Sampler...I am so proud of Peter at how they turned out from his talented hands!!!


Another hot one in store for us here in VA today...

it is truly oppressive and makes me physically ill ~ so I am opting again to stay indoors...
I am SO wishing for FALL!
(can you tell?)


Hoping you all have a beautiful day, and stay cool & safe!!



Blessings from the Farm...
Lori

Just a note to say what beautiful work you do. It's inspirational and as I finish up this quilt that has taken forever, I am thinking of a sampler and a new quilt that will pick up the colours and feelings of the sampler. (Hope that makes sense.)

It's very hot here where I live and the oppressive heat is at times defeating.

Best regards,
RJ
