Home!

Howdy Folks!!!
I am HOME...here in VA ~ :)
I had a wonderful week spent with family, especially with my Mom.
We didn't do anything too exciting, but that's exactly what we wanted to do...
spend time with one another.




I did visit the
Newtown Country Mill
a beautiful country/primitive shop located in Newtown, CT ~


it is owned by my sweet friend Linda, who had faith in me to suggest that I teach rug hooking at her shop...here are some snaps of my visit...



the pic below is of Linda & my sister Louisea at Linda's shop counter...





just look at all the goodies in this beautiful shop...
I'll take one of everything please!



colonial, primitive New England....

love the colors ...mustard, black & brick


Linda carries a wonderful selection for your decorating,
and also a great sampling of homespun fabrics...



you may remember Linda's shop, her home & her daughter's home in a recent issue of
A Primitive Place magazine...



if you're in the neighborhood, stop in & see Linda...you'll be thrilled that you did!!
tell her I sent you!



or visit her on the web at

In Other News...
while away, I worked on the new punch needle patterns for Christmas/Winter 2012...


look for their release (hopefully) October 26th.
I also will have a couple of items available on http://www.earlyworkmercantile.com/ on November 1st,
for our Early Cabin Christmas offerings ~
AND
I have HUGE news....
Peter & I are looking in to purchasing a shop in downtown Historic Lynchburg, VA!!!!
I will be moving my primitives/needlework shop there and will hold classes there as well...
we will offer RETREATS for rug hooking & needlework in the farm shop here, and continue to hold our annual Gathering of Primitive Friends show each September...
it is SO exciting, knowing that I will have a shop in the 'city', where folks can come to visit, shop, learn & purchase primitives & needlework supplies...a lot more 'foot' traffic ~ woohoo!
the building we're looking at is brick, has three floors ~ a shop with two apartments
(which Hannah & Skyler already say they're moving into)


I haven't seen the inside yet, but know that it is brick...I LOVE brick walls!!!


so, more news on that will come....

Well, I have tons of emails to catch up on,
so I'll leave you for now...


it's good to be Home again!!!



blessings from the farm,



Lori

Welcome home! Glad you had a nice visit with Mom, family and friends!
Awesome looking shop...I think I could get lost in there for a good while!
A shop in town would be awesome! (yet isn't it nice just to walk right out your door and across the yard to go to work? lol)
Good luck and I will be sending good thoughts your way that it all works out as it should!
