~ Rabbit Season ~

Good Afternoon ~ Friends & Folk ~
...happy Saturday to us all...

warm temps and some sunshine has found me outdoors,
working in the kitchen garden and stitching on the patio!

I have been creating little rabbits ~
in thread and wool:

here is a little gardening lady in my hoop...

and a little needlefelted wool bunny in my garden of violas...

{and a cute little carrot too!}

I'm heading out to the garden & patio again today
 to stitch and felt a little bit more while the weather is good,
...they are predicting rain again in the forecast.

hoping your day is filled with sunshine & good health!
Blessings from the Farm

~ Crochet ~

 Good Monday Morning
Friends & Folk ~
a very rainy, cloudy, dark, damp, wet & soppy day here at the farm today...

With these days of necessary confinement, Peter & I are being diligent about staying home as much as possible, going out only one day a week for shopping & shipping orders, and I thank all of our customers for your continued kindness, patience and support ♥

I have been trying to learn to crochet, with the help of my best-girlfriends
{{ a.k.a. The Tribe }}
as mentioned previously in a few of my past-postings here...
nothing fancy, I just want to master the granny square!

I miss seeing these girls so much ~
 we have been getting together every Saturday for so long now, and now with the Stay Home movement I can tell you that we just can't wait to be back together again!

these girls and I have been chatting constantly everyday since being housebound
...thank God for FB and messenger!

So yesterday and last evening,
I tried to make tiny little granny squares using valdani perle cotton 
and then from some other lightweight yarn...

don't ask me what I will do with these...make a doll afghan maybe or just toss them...
but I just can't for the life of me make two the same!
some have the square corners like they are supposed to, but most are round! 

and some I will just call 'Squround'.

I'll try again today, after farmhouse chores are done ~

here are a few inspiration photos from my Pinterest Board on Crochet:



and here is a link to my actual "Crocheted" board on Pinterest for even more drool-worthy inspiration! ---> 

How many of you crochet?
How long have you crocheted? ~ what was your very first project?
do tell....inquiring minds and all that ;)
