First things first ~

Happy April First!
(rabbit rabbit rabbit)
Hoping you all enjoyed a beautiful holiday weekend...
we did!
Saturday, my hookers came out to play...
Here is Cindy,
holding a huge long runner she made using her Oxford Rug Punch and yarn.
it is just beautiful and super soft!
Hi Cindy!
 she also made these,
a purse with a hand-knitted/felted back and strap,
and a sweet tulip mat....
sew pretty
 we enjoyed the company of Joan, Cindy, Margaret & Nancy...
and we made a mess :)

here is another "First"
the first in a line of promotional farm goods are ~
...these awesome tote bags!!!
(more promotional gifts to come soon)

These are too cool!
These promotional gifts are free to you ~
when you purchase with us for $25.00 or more online,
make a purchase when you visit our farm shop here,
we will also be giving them to our friends at the
Virginia Rugfest!!!!!
roomy & big!!!

Classic white with black logo...of our beloved sheep,
who is the inspiration for our new hand-drawn logo.
(come on out and visit Esther in person at the farm...bring carrots!)

measures approx. 20" wide x 13" high (not inc. handles) and 8" deep

all of my stuff fits in mine nicely...
my collapsible frame, rug-in-progress, extra linen, plenty of folded wool...
hooks, scissors....everything I need is in there!

ready to go & play hooky!

we will also be gifting our shoppers with other types of
promotional goods for the needleworker ~
such as retractable tape measures for your sewing basket,
...and full aprons to protect your clothes while you hook or craft...
all with the same logo of Esther...
(I'm SEW excited!!) haha.
I'll post about them when they come in.


It will be a busy week for me here....
I'm finishing up some punched pins for the show, need to print out books, patterns & such.
then cut & fold weavers cloth into fat 1/4's, gather props & such for the booth.
it's alot of work, but I enjoy every minute of it~
Hoping your April Fool's Day brings you all pleasant surprises!!

WheW!!! I'm exhausted just saying all that, keep it up, love all you create...... just wish I lived closer so I could be a frequent visitor/shopper!
