~ Stuff & a Friendly Reminder ~

I'm SO Excited!

I will be heading out and down the dusty road Bright and Early
~ on Wednesday May 3rd to the much anticipated
PSS Retreat & Merchant Mall in
Columbus, OH 
Merchant Mall is OPEN to the public 
Friday May 5 & Saturday May 6th from 12:30 - 4:00

I'm so sad that my dear Friend Joan won't be able to come with me this time ~
she told me today how much she will miss seeing all of the PSS members that she knows 
from being my right & left hands at the last two retreats...
I told her I would shop the Merchant Mall and buy her something very special.
Her dear Arthur is not doing well ~ at the moment they did decide to give an oral chemo a try and it, along with the previous radiation treatments are taking their toll on his fragile body.

please continue to lift them up in thought & prayer...


 I also told Joan that I will take many photos of everyone's booths, and of everyone shopping, stitching and having a great time ~ 
she will live vicariously through FB posts and blog postings for now,
 until she gets to join in on the fun once again....


I wanted to thank everyone for the recent comments on our new designs ~
I will be offering everything next week in our Etsy shop!
notecards, new patterns for punch & stitch
and that handy little Stitcher's tray that Peter built.


 and, 
since I will be away for the weekend, 
our FARM SHOP here will be CLOSED.

...... Peter will be here at the farm ~
no doubt enjoying the puppies!

'see' you all again soon my friends!!!

Blessings from the Farm ~

My heart breaks for Joan and her dear Arthur.
Darn. I am only a couple hours from Columbus and won't make it down. I am dog sitting my granddog and don't want to leave her for that many hours.
Safe travels :)
