~ In the News ~

 Happy Sunday Friends & Folk ~
keeping well and healthy I am hoping?

keeping our hands busy and our minds off of certain lifestyle-altering events
 can help reduce our stress immeasurably ~ 
and stress is the number ONE cause of lower resistance and immune system problems!

Recently, on one of my favorite Facebook Groups,
the Prim Stitchers Society {aka: PSS} someone posted a photo 
of one of my earlier cross stitch club designs, and asked where they could find/buy the pattern...

that got me to thinking that I should really release them to the public that it has been a few years.

So I will do just that.
There will be a total of 18 small, quick-to-stitch and easy-to-finish cross stitch projects ~
some are 'seasonal', and others are 'everyday' designs.

the two collages below show the individual photos of the finished models that I used for the club;

Below Collage:
top row: Spools of my Thread, Happy ThankHallowMas, Patriotic Fan Pinkeep
middle row: Snow Pants, Garden House Pin Tuffet, Tansy Cat
bottom row: Lady Bird, Melancholy, Folk Tulip Needlework Station

Below Collage:
top row: Folk Bird Needlebook, Sewing Basket Scissors Keep, Little Red Schoolhouse
middle row: Hand & Heart Hanging Pinkeep, Queen Bee Needle Poke, Merry Gathering Basket
bottom row: There's No Place, Strawberry Basket Pinkeep, Alpha Basket Needle Roll

as soon as I can get all of the files ready, I will release the patterns in our Etsy shop ~
I am hoping to offer these as both PAPER/Mailed and PDF/Download...
BUT I may not be able to get them all in PDF format from my older computer,
so it is what it is ~

Hoping to work on this task tomorrow 
and have them uploaded into the Etsy shop by Wednesday ~
I'll post here on this blog, and on FB about this for those who follow there too!

Blessings from the Farm

~ 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
