~ Friday Musings ~

 Happy Friday 
Friends & Folk!

a busy day ahead for me ~ after processing customers' orders,
I have to get the Farm Shop back into 'gear' today...
... it has been as I left it since returning from the PSS retreat a few weeks ago.
{{ it has been neglected with all of the happenings lately. }}

with the hot temps and rain, the gardens need pruning back as well ~
and there are plants to be...
... planted.

a busy little bee I am.

In the evenings, I have been stitching on this:  
my little 'Tomato Season' design ~
 as I've mentioned, I'm working mine over-one
 on 32ct Vintage Sand Dune linen from Lakeside Linens...

this is the bottom left of the design...

my sweetest model stitcher Heather 
sent me a photo of her progress as she is working it, 
this is a sneak peek below, of the lower right side of the same design...
she's stitching it on same linen but over two threads 
~ so when we are both finished you'll see a 'regular' sized model 
... and a teeny tinier version of it too :)

I wanted to show you my finished project bag too!
I purchased the boiled-wool bag from Ali at the PSS Retreat
along with some new roving and new felting needles...

I appliqued the wool tulip on, 
then embellished with needlefelting on the leaves, stem and flower.

I LOVE it ~
how many of you folks needlefelt???
I'm thinking of holding a class here at the Farm shop this Autumn ~
any interest in learning??

of course I have been perusing Pinterest
every. single. night.

I love being able to pin my favorite things on my boards ~
So here are some EARLY miniature samplers to enjoy...
{these are not 'mine' ~ they are all from Pinterest}

 well I'm off to 'work' ~
 hoping your day is filled with wonderful little things!

woot woot!

Blessings from the Farm
