~ A LIttle Light Reading ~

Hello Friends & Folk ~
and Happy Sunday to you!

...we were busy in the shop yesterday, 
so I didn't get a chance to work as much as I would have liked to
 on my Bee Witched rug ~
{hopefully today will be different}

we did go to town for a few supplies last night after dinner,
~ and once in town I HAVE to visit Barnes & Noble!
{plus I had two 20% off coupons + my everyday membership discount of 10%}
woot wooot!

I picked up a favorite CD,
Neil Young's 'Harvest Moon' 
and
4 of my all-time favorite mags 
{yes, 'only' four} ha!

~ Art Doll Quarterly
~ Where Women Create
~ Prims
&
~ Primitive Quilts and Projects




I have another punch needle project in this PQ&P issue ~
"Pig in the Posies" Thread Spool Holder




I love pigs ~
big fat pigs, miniature pigs, piglets…
yep - they are cute!

this project began as a simple stuffed pin keep or pillow tuck, but quickly evolved into a primitive thread spool holder while I was creating it, due to the fact that I kept knocking my thread spool off my work surface!

Once you've made yours from the pattern in the magazine,
~  I would LOVE to see finished photos of your handwork :)
send your photos to me at 




Heading out to hang laundry, 
then tidy up this old farmhouse a bit…
think I'll bake some peach cobbler for dessert tonight while perusing my new mags ~

wishing you all a beautifully-peaceful Sunday!

~ Blessings from the Farm ~

Oh - can't wait to get my new PQ&P in the mail! I've never seen any coupons for Barnes & Nobel - where did you find such a treasure? Annoys the heck out of me that JoAnns and Michaels don't take them for magazines anymore.
