~ A Gift for You ~

 Hello Friends & Folk ~
and greetings to you on this Fine,
November Sunday!

....can you believe that Thanksgiving is this coming Thursday already?
~ where does the time go....

I have loved the Thanksgiving holiday since I was a child,
oh those fond memories of being in grammar school ~
making paper hats,
and cutting out handprint turkeys pasted-together from colorful construction papers!
those thoughts visit me each year...
along with happy memories of large dining room tables filled with laughter and food -
those perfect whipped-potatoes, and crispy-skinned, fat and juicy turkey!

So much to be thankful for,
each and every day:

πŸ¦ƒ πŸ¦ƒ πŸ¦ƒ πŸ¦ƒ πŸ¦ƒ πŸ¦ƒ πŸ¦ƒ

We are so thankful to our family, friends and customers
who support us in every way ~

Here is a sweet little cross stitch pattern for you,
just because we love you!
  ❤ Thankful Heart Freebie ❤
 I finished mine off into a small, rag stuffed pillow...
I made the pillow first, from brown calico fabric
then filled it with clean rags.
I stitched the edges of the little cross stitch back, then stitched that onto the front of the fabric pillow...a little bit of a layered, old look that I love.

I hope you enjoy this freebie ~ I would love to see your finishes too.
Happy Happy Thanksgiving to you!

~ November Monday ~

It is a cold morning!
Frost and melting frost 
Drips from the old tin roof…

Sparkles and silver drops
On wavy-glass windows 
Trickle their way down 
to old wooden sashes.

Woodstove is piping,
Kettle is chirping
Telling me 
it’s time for tea.

Thread, hoop and needle
Wait for me
In a basket
Near my tattered chair…

Bread rising, 
Bread baking
Filling this old house with warmth and love

The embroidery above
Is in the 
Current issue of 
Punch Needle and
Primitive Stitcher

~ Hello November, Hello YOU! ~

 Yes, I know....
I am lacking terribly on keeping up with my {promised} posting-more-often
on this blog!

no throwing rotten tomatoes at me please ;)

Life is just busy...
happily, creatively, thankfully, busily, 

holidays looming,
open house to prepare for.

family time, babysitting grand-dogs...
work work work
 plans being made for tutorial videos of my humble stitches,
more embroidery patterns in my brain being put on paper for future patterns.

thinking about upcoming classes for 2023
{2023. really? *sigh*}

well below are some new things that I'm hoping to release on Sunday Nov. 6th
thought I could get them all ready earlier this week and loaded into the Etsy shop,

 Saturday, November 19th we will have our monthly Open Studio from 10:00 - 4:00
if you're in the neighborhood, come on in and stitch with us!
