{ Stitching Along....}

really, I AM stitching!
it's just that the past few days
we've had a brief spell of cooler temps
and less humidity...
so I am actually in the progress of cleaning the farmhouse ~
here is (one of ) my favorite place to stitch...
it's an old wingback chair in my keeping room:
bright and comfy

the morning sun coming around ~
old feedsack on the back of my chair
and feather-filled ticking pillow
for my back...

love my old farmhouse
 and here is proof that I am actually stitching:
see? almost finished...


happy little stitches

love their expressions :)

their treat bucket looks confused though! ha!!

even though I must own at least 100 pincushions
in all shapes, sizes and ages ~
...this is the one I love the most:
plain & simple
 I think it's actually the 'inards' of a pincushion ~
looks like it might have had a fancier covering at one time.
I like it just the way it is.
floppy and filled with little silver pins....
I keep a pair of small vintage children's scissors pinned on to it by a big old safetypin.
always handy when I need them....
Felicia is almost finished with
"Widow's Weeds"
and then Peter & I will put it in a frame specially designed for that design.
I am hoping for a Sunday release of all 5 of the new designs!!!
have a beautiful day my Friends~

Thanks for sharing your farmhouse! It seems very cozy.

I love the owls, and the treat bucket's expression is priceless! Can't wait for the patterns to become available.

I love your stitching corner, it looks so inviting! Is that an antique wool-winder that I see?

Lori from Notforgotten Farm said...

yes it is ~ known as a niddy-noddy or weasel...it winds the yarn and 'pops' when it has come full-circle 'round...that's where the song 'Pop goes the weasel' springs from!

You are one bundle of talent, warmth and energy m'dear! Those owls are just the sweetest, and stitching in your own little corners of the world? . . . What could be better?
