Tuesday Evening Musings.....

....and a pleasant Tuesday evening it is....
Mr. Iggy has been setting in the windowsill of our Keeping Room,
keeping watch for the house-wrens and purple finch that like to visit our backyard feeder...
{{little does he know, they're on to him ~ and only visit whence they don't see him!}}


I have been making slow-progress on my Autumn stitchers challenge piece,
but it is progress...
see?
I've added wording,
pumpkins, acorns & a crescent moon:

I've even begun to stitch a little Homeplace down the far bottom corner....

not much, but it pleases me!


In Other News,
I have totally redesigned Miss Flea's (felicia's) Blog...
she hasn't blogged in Weeks upon weeks, and it's high-time she did.

she needed a fresh, new look to her blog, so I happily volunteered myself ~

visit her at:


add her to your favorites, follow her, tell your friends about her...
she is my #1 Friend, Cohort, Model Stitcher & Traveling Companion...

if you have a design that you would like to have her stitch, contact her at:

martin-house@hotmail.com
she proved her weight in gold for the Fastest Stitcher in the South at Stacy's class on saturday...

and you all thought I was joking?
she was the first to hand-finish her project(s) at the class...
...and might I say they all came out perfect...

I hate her.

(kidding)
but I wish I could stitch as fast as she can...
BUT, then again,
that's why she's MY model-stitcher!!

(i will share her with you only a little)
:)


well, we've been back to school shopping...
my girl loves to thrift shop, and I am
ever-so-thankful.

Hannah loves vintage, quirky, circa 1980's clothing,

so the Goodwill provides much of that,,,
(especially here down south)

we do, however, seem to gravitate towards trendy jewelery....but that's ok...

what we save at the Thrifts, we can afford the goodies...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I will be putting the finishing touches to the
Christmas Adam & Eve sampler & Sledding in Connecticut sampler tomorrow...
I'm hoping to release them by this coming weekend!!


Hoping you all have a relaxing evening,
spent with those who love you the most!
Blessings from the Farm...

Hmmm, your challenge piece is looking really good! Thanks for letting us know about your header piece. You really should publish that one....I'm just saying. :)

Iggy is adorable! Her profile (particularly her face) sure makes me wonder if she has some purebred in her?

Love your blog, too! I used to cross stitch but seeing your antiqued pieces makes me want to take it up again.
