Sunday Musings ~

~ Greetings Friends & Folk ~

oh what a beautiful morning!
….oh what a beautiful day!!
{sang at the top of my lungs!}

..it is 62 balmy degrees here at the farm at the moment 
….WOO HOOOOO!

the laundry is *snapping* on the clothesline, 
...the windows are 
OPEN 
and I am in heaven :)
{sorry friends and family in CT ~ hope it is melting for you!}

Yesterday was our 
Winters Tea & Wool Applique class
here in the farm shop ~
our wonderful, knowledgeable teacher Nancy led us in a pleasant class on organic herbal tea making ~
we tasted her 'special' blends for healing, up-lifting & comforting teas…
~ each one more unique than the last.
Nancy also brought along one of her fresh-baked 
Rose Geranium Cakes 
to go along with the tea.
Oh So Good!

after the tea class,
I taught a small wool appliqué class…
here are our friends working in deep concentration on that blanket stitch:



H E L L O 
Pat, Mary, Katie, Ginny, Robin & Nancy!




lots of giggles, a couple of snorts ~ {on my part}
but plenty of friendship to go around ~
I just love you all….




While us 'girls' were busy inside,
Peter & Minew were out in the herb garden weeding the up-coming mint crop.
{"Mimi" likes to lend a paw…}




such a pretty Momma-kitty…
we love you too Mimi.




and look what's popping up already!
DAFFODILS!!!!
{yay!}




oh beautiful little flowers, do hurry ~




...here is a far-away shot of our humble farmhouse ~

I'm anxious to see some daffodil shoots too! It will be awhile here though....on the meantime a pot of forced differs is the best I can do!
Hugs Marg.
