{ a productive far ! }

I added a girl to my sampler...
(plus a couple of crows, a rabbit & of course, a key...)

and I even did a few punches on my wip on my frame...
(this will be a pocket, the pattern will be available early April, along with some others...)

I even found time to go for a walk in the woods with my dogs...
I found two sweet llittle snail shells, a bunch of broken blue-glass canning jars,
some fine twigs to make into a spring wreath, and some shards of olde pottery...

I like to place all of of little found treasures on my step-back hutch...
along with my blue fabric boxes from Linda
and my collection of abandoned birds nests...

tis little things that delight me so!

We are expecting falling weather tomorrow (rain) and into the weekend...
oh well, it's good for the herbs, right?

Tonight is the dress rehearsal for
"Peter Pan"
a musical put on by the Nelson County High School Drama class....

Hannah is 1st Flute in the Orchestra, and will be performing a Solo...
I'll be taking pics to share tomorrow!!

Well I'm off to stitch...
OH! almost forgot....
Robin will be bringing the finished model for
Rabbit Folk
here to me on Friday, so I'm hoping to have all three
finished & ready to be released
for Sunday!!

Blessings from the Farm,


  1. Love seeing the progress ~ lookin' great! :)

    We are enjoying rain too... but the most delightful thing happened when I went out to check the mail earlier. I heard the bullfrogs in the ditch! YIPPEE Spring is close!

  2. hurray for bullfrogs Betty!!!
    I can't wait to hear the peepers in the creek!!!


  3. Productive days are good days in my book. I can't wait to see what new patterns you'll have. I just took up hooking and am doing one of your designs. I don't think I'm doing justice to it yet as my loops are all over the place, but with practice they'll get better and then I can buy more of your designs. They translate so well to rug hooking.

  4. Lori, You are so bad... LOL You keep showing us all these new designs.. I can't stitch them all at one time.. LOL I want too....

  5. I feel like I am being teased with this pattern!! It will be so fun to see the entire piece at once!

  6. Can't wait to see the whole sampler finished. Good luck this weekend with the play.
