~ Feathers & Thread Tales ~

Good Snowy Sunny Sunday Morning 
Friends & Folk!

after our recent, wonderful snowfall ~
we are having beautiful sunshine today
...albeit only in the 20's when we woke.

I love to see snow when it sparkles in the sunshine, don't you? 

Peter made a quick makeshift bird feeder from a trash can lid for our bird friends...
here are a few who visited this morning:

 Blue Jays & Grackles
Snow Buntings & Cardinals....


their antics crack me up! 
we put out peanuts in the shell, dried fruit, sunflower seeds and millet 
~ boy do they love us! 
{{ we had to take down the bird feeders for repair, hence the lid! }}

I've finished stitching the model for the 
Jan/Feb/Mar 2017 Little Stitches Handwork Club {LSHC}

a sweet girl with her pet bird...


... now I just need to 'finish' finish it!
I'll be shipping club kits this week to current members :)


 
I'm finishing up other projects for soon to be released patterns ~
punch needle has been in progress for weeks,
as my little punching-station is set up in our keeping room, 
which is next to our cozy woodstove...






I'm excited to show you the new designs!!
I hope you'll like them ~
think: 
 F O L K Y






of course I'll be including a few hearts into the mix,
along with more spring-like & everyday designs...
❤ 
 

and
here are my recent stitches for the
1 Year of Stitches 2017 project ~

I am truly enjoying this...
and seeing everyone's progress as well!




 today 
I added a thread spool & needle :)




 Wishing you all a beautiful day 
... filled with peace & contentment!


Blessings from the Farm ~ 
Peter & Lori

I love it too when the sun makes the snow sparkle or the moonlight as well. Your work is very nice. I want to learn how to do embroidery. Do you have any suggestions

Another pretty post & I Love your folky punch needle design !!! All your daily stitching is really neat too ! Wonder how it will look at the end of the year ! Freshly fallen snow is beautiful ! Just wish it stayed off the roads & my driveway !

Virginia is so beautiful under a January snow and azure blue skies! There are not many big snows in Va winters and it is always a surprise to find a picture postcard landscape for a week or so.

Love your new inspirations for hearts in the works. Your colors are so lovely and rich.

Keep warm and enjoy the lovely Winter on the farm!
