At the height of laughter,
the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities.
if you heard a bunch of laughter coming from Virginia yesterday,
it was the group of girls you see below....
and as soon as they walked in the front door of the farm shop,
they filled it with warmth & laughter ~
... they came for a refresher/crash course in basic punch needle ~
and made great progress throughout the chatting & giggling!
a simple poinsettia design was drawn up,
and we used DMC threads for the 6-strand method of punching.
they brought with them cookies, cheese dip
~ and even a crockpot-full of delicious hot red beet soup!
we joked, munched & nibbled and drank hot tea
all while sharing with each other stories of quilting
and their passions for other types of needle and hand work ~
Dear Miss Joan was here per usual,
to help with anything she could,
and to work a little on her projects as well...
some of 'us' even pulled a few loops of wool
and I'm hoping that I've stirred up their interest a bit more in rug hooking
and just like that,
the day was done and they headed on their merry-way home ~
Thank you so much, my friends ~
for coming in and allowing me to enjoy a day spent with you!
and here is my Dear Miss Joan,
in her 'natural' state! ha!
|we love you joanie!|
if you have a small group or guild that is interested in coming in
for a refresher course or beginner class on punch needle,
applique, rug hooking or cross stitch ~
... we'd love to here from you!
Now I am off to finish pulling the last loops on my rug in progress ~
Hoping you all have a fun-filled and creative day!
Blessings from the Farm ~
