Blessings from the Farm,


  1. Congratulations on your second printing and on the show in Feb. You will do fine, just relax and drink a glass of wine!!

  2. I am so happy for you, so many exciting things happening for you right now! can't wait to see stinky standing on one leg, amazing how we thought the poor thing might not survive and your love and 'mothering' have given him the strength to stand on his own :)

  3. Way to go Stinky !!!!!
    Congrats on the book and it's great you're so excited for the market.
    I would love to see more of the witch garden sampler. It sounds great and what I see is beautiful !!
    Looking forward to see a picture of Stinky !!

  4. Can't wait to get your book! Congratulations on being at the needlework show! And on little bird's survial!! You're a good momma to the little chick!!!

  5. Being "skeered" (love it!) and crazy-excited (like butterflies in your tummy) just means that something extraordinary and amazing is about to happen. Enjoy it... you deserve it! : )

  6. Lori....congratulations on everything...LOVE the header and LOVE the witches sampler...

    all so wonderful


  7. The American Dream...if you work hard, you can be anything you want to be. Congratulations.
