Happy Friday Friends & Folk!
oh it has been a busy week...
...I've been finishing up frame orders,
working on new Xmas/Winter needlepunch designs,
stitching some wool applique's that may-or-may-not become patterns...

readying the woodstoves for the predicted SNOW tomorrow!
{{yes, I said a four-letter-word....}}
the little woolen mittens remind me of things to come :)

here is a preview of one of the new designs:
yes, it is a donkey!!
Hmmm,....I wonder who the inspiration for this design is?

and here is an almost finished wool applique':

I'm thinking of adding some stitching to the background,
but not sure exactly what yet,..any suggestions?

I have to thank ALL of you who are 'playing' in my giveaway game...WOW!
I had no idea there were so many bear & pincushion-lovers out there!
well...maybe I did, but I'm honored that so many of you have left such sweet comments~
Verizon & AOL are giving me fits lately...
IF you have emailed me in the last couple of days and I haven't replied,
it may be because I haven't received your email...so PLEASE resend it!

Tonight is Hannah's last football game of 2011 as Drum Major...
it is also Senior Night, where all of the seniors & their parents are recognized by the school~
then tomorrow is the Nelson County Marching Governors last Band Competition
in Powhatan VA...
please keep your fingers crossed for Hannah that she will bring her band to the
Best in their Class awards!!!

Go GOVS GO!!!!!

Hoping you all have a beautiful day~

blessings from the farm,
