FINALLY I am able to post this ~
as you might know I am in CT visiting family,
and I had scheduled a post to go live, ahead of time, but apparently it never did ~
I think blogger is having scheduling issues, but whatever...
here is my late post for you!
Hello Friends & Folk!
welcome to day 10 of Buttermilk Basin's
Spring Thyme Blog Hop
and today is my day to share with you :)
My two favorite seasons are Spring & Autumn....
~ but all 4 seasons here in Virginia are just beautiful~
Since we still have lots of mud and some snow here today
so I rummaged through a few of my photographs from last year.....
here is our humble Homeplace
with a view from our farmshop herb garden ~
Springtime means lots of new friends here at the farm...
like sweet baby chicks with very attentive Mommas ~
of course it means my tulips & other bulbs bloom
like these grape hyacinth too...
and what spring would be complete without a kitten or two?
we love our kittens so much!
here is the project that I've designed for you ~
just a simple look with lots of possibilities...
I stitched this using DMC threads ~
all stems ~ 3011 ~ straight stitch
all leaves ~ 832 ~ satin & lazy daisy stitch
bird ~ 647 ~ satin stitch
bird's belly ~ 3064 ~ satin stitch
lettering, bird legs & berries ~ 610 ~ back stitch & french knot
IF you decide you don't want to stitch this,
you have my permission to punch, hook or appliqué it too :)
I would love to see photos of your finished creation so send me your photos to my email
and I will share them here on my blog!
and here is my recipe!
I love my cookies!!!!
this one calls for dried or fresh lavender buds ~
....they have a peppery-sweet flavor, and I think you'll love them too
they're so pretty!!
I hope you have enjoyed your visit, and my offerings today ~
....my thanks to Stacy for hosting this blog hop for us!!!
make sure to continue to hop-along with us tomorrow too!
~ Blessings from the Farm ~
