~ Looking Ahead ~

 Good Wednesday Morning
 Friends & Folk!

a beatifully-overcast day is on tap for us...
a perfect day to fire-up the slow cooker with some lamb stew 
~ and I think I'll bake some apple hand pies for dessert...
I love when the farmhouse is filled with wonderful scents from the kitchen, don't you?

As the month of September winds down, and with the first full day of Autumn being tomorrow,
I have been sketching ideas & creating for the upcoming Winter shows & events on my schedule...

by far the most exciting event on my schedule each year is the imitable:
 From Our Hands & Hearts Show
November 11 & 12 ~ 2016
The Boston Twp. Hall
1775 Main St. ~ Peninsula, Ohio

Friday Preview 
4pm ~ 7pm
$15.00 per person

Saturday Show
 10am ~ 3pm
$6.00 at the door
($1.00 off with any ad, printed web page or post card!)

From Our Hands & Hearts Show
 I look so forward to seeing my artisan friends there, and greeting friends old & new who come to spend the day shopping with us ~ this is a not-to-miss event and you will never regret going!

I am working on wonderful one of a kind finished goods for this show
~ and am in full throttle creative mode!
this year is my third year as a participating artist with them...
I am so very thankful to Lori Ann & Rebekah for their gracious invitation ~

Look for another of my punch/wool applique design in the NEW publication:

 in between this & that,

my heart is full and my hands are busy!

What an exciting lineup of folk art immersion! I've subscribed to Wool Works and am looking forward to the first issue…with your work especially! Your Snow Crow is whimsically adorable…I love the background that accentuates his, er, unique color. :) Thank you, Lori, for keeping us followers "in the loop," be it punch needle, appliqué, or rug hooking! Learning and enjoying so much.
