Rainy Days & Stitching ~


The Sun poked it's head out from the clouds
 for a brief moment the other day,
~ then faded back under-cover.
enough for me to dry a few loads of laundry on the clothesline at least.

BUT THEN IT POURED
again last night.   torrentially.  for a few hours.
{I think the donkeys are secretly building an ark out there}
~ come on Mother Nature, lets get this Winter started 
and send us some bright & sunny COLD days!!!

I received a gift card from P & H for Christmas to Joann's {YAY!}
so yesterday we decided to go to the mall {BOO!} but that's where our Joann's is.
and I brought home this little fellow:




a little red squirrel pincushion!
I don't have the heart to stick any pins in him though lol….
so he is there for moral support while I'm stitching :)
{you can see more progress has been made on the next LSHC model}




Mr. Squirrel holds a secret though ~
in his belly is a retractable tape measure!




it's good to have company nearby when rainy-day stitching ~




...even if Iggy has to tolerate a new one occasionally.


mom?


In Other News ~
I am getting caught up on orders that have come in between Christmas & now.
Thank you for kindly understanding the delay while our family celebrates together.

Hoping you all have a day 
filled with hopes of Peace & Healing for the New Year to come!


~ Blessings from the Farm ~

Cute little squirrel. Can't believe you found him at JoAnn's.
Iggy always makes me smile. :-)

Love your squirrel and sweet red vintage scissors! I positively *ADORE* your new LSHC piece! I must get going on the last club kit ;) so that I am ready when this one arrives! (Although "Holly" has been calling to me lately as well...) I know what I hope to be doing on New Years Eve ~ lots of Notforgotten Farm stitching!
Yikes! I better go make sure I renewed my club membership!
Blessings, Patti

I love your new friend Miss Lori.... And, ah....it's so good to see sweet Iggy's face again! How I've missed him and you..... It has been a strange winter weather-wise in all parts I think. We have been so very dreary for months it seems, but did have a white Christmas....and then were "blessed" with another 7" last night. Guess it's time to go into hibernation mode.... Wishing you a new year filled with magic and dreams and good madness. ;o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Hi, I've been looking for that squirrel for over a year now! It's great to see that the squirrel lives. Would you happen to know where I can get one of those? My girlfriend used to have one (she named hers Kevin) and I lost him and she hasn't let me forget it. If you know anywhere to get another squirrel tape measure/pincushion, please lemme know. Thank you
