Thursday Postings ~

Aside from being shaken out of bed at 1:00 this morning from a 4.5 aftershock,
& getting ready for hurricane Irene,

I've been doing this:

Scherenschnitte ~otherwise-known-as~
Pennsylvania German Papercutting...

here is my little
Whistling Witch 5" x 7"

and my little Sweeping Witch also 5" x 7"

I'll be painting frames for these
and putting them in my Etsy shop ~
I am in the process of making larger ones too...
I'll share them in a later post.

and here is that little cross stitch I'm working on for the
Early Work Mercantile ~

a little wonky, but that's how I like 'em :)

I just started stitching, no chart,
~ so that's why the border doesn't match-up

it will be a pinkeep, & I'll trim it with the black ric-rac
& buttons and fill it with spices and sawdust ~

oh, & yeah ~
I know....
I love to change my blog.
it makes me happy to play with it ~
so, for now,
it's for the birds!

Hoping you all have a *Sparkling* late-Summer's day!

Blessings from the Farm...

Hi Lori....I can't imagine an earthquake on this side of the country...but there have been a lot of things going on this past year that are very 'not normal' - seems times are changing.

Hope you will be safe and dry and not get touched by the hurricane.

Love your stitchery - wonky is good!!! But it doesn't look like it to me...it's perfect.

I love the silhouettes. They are really neat. It's neat that you cut paper like that. What a talent. -Steph-

Adorable little piece of stitching, I can't wait to see how you finish it.

I'm glad everything was ok after the quake, when I heard about it, first thing that went through my mind was the dam at Smith Mountain Lake. Stay safe and hopefully as dry as possible from Irene.
