Happy Wednesday!

...the sun is shining, the air is crisp and cold ~
although we don't have snowy weather, I am happy that today is here!!
I want to THANK all of you from the bottom of my heart for your well wishes ~
I hesitated to 'put out there' about the biopsy, but am now glad I did...because I now have a very strong army of fiercely positive women hoping the best for me!

~~~~~ THANK YOU ~~~~~

and, since I am starting a brand new day,
I thought I would share a few snaps with you...

here is a sweet, fat little mourning dove perched in the sun on our backyard feeder...
she just sat there blinking at me while I snapped away.

and, I did managed to punch a few loops last night...
here is a peek at

"Wool Ewe be Mine":

of course, this is the back...hence the backwards writing...
there will be a square background around the heart,
making the finished shape more of a squat rectangle...

I drew this up on friday night, then began punching it at Donna's show on saturday.
I'll work more on it this aft, then get to work on the other new patterns.

I have had a few of you email about the calendar that I've been working on,
and as for now it is on the back burner. I want to get new cross stitch and needle punch patterns out for you asap, so I will work mainly on them instead...

well friend-folk,
I am heading to the barn...
the singing donkeys & dancing sheep are getting rather noisy about their late breakfast...
(and yes, there WILL be a cross stitch pattern of them coming soon!!!!)

blessings from the farm,

The little heart sheep punching is so cute! I just finished your Grey House needle book punching. It's my second punching ever and your tips from my afternoon at the farmhouse made a HUGE improvement! Thank you again! Can't wait to punch more! I am sending more positive vibes to you today. I hope you are feeling them, too. Xxoo

Hi Lori! Just been catching up on reading my blogs. Saw your news and wanted to send my well wishes for you. I had been through something similar a few years back. Everything did turn out ok, but I well remember the stress of waiting for those results! Sending my prayers...
