Happy Saturday!

~ Hello Friends & Folk! ~
it's Saturday already again!
seems like I was just at the Fishersville show...time sure flies, doesn't it?
I've finished my
Susannah Hoffer's Marking Sampler design...
and made it into a sweet sewing roll-up/pinkeep ~
I like how it turned out...
sometimes when you don't have an actual plan,
things turn out rather well ~
I attached a long, sawdust-filled pincushion to the lower edge
using the same fabric for the pincushion as the edging/backing.
The pattern will include the finishing directions too for you ~

remember this?
Feeding the Reindeer

I am re-charting this and will release it with the Susannah Hoffer pattern
VERY soon ~
along with another "re-visited" pattern, called
Little Brown Dog Sampler

Look for all three to be released either tonight or tomorrow
along with a picturetrail update of some of my finished wares :)
Have a beautiful Weekend my Friends!!!!
blessings from the farm,


  1. aww your scissor keep pouch is so sweet and feeding the reindeer is super fav colors all in it..
    big hugs for you xx

  2. Lori, your marking sampler is awesome and I can't wait to stitch it. This one really speaks to me and I know it will be a big hit. It is a must have! Wonderful designing.
    Props to you :)
    Happy Saturday!

  3. Looove the sewing roll-up, Lori! Beautiful. I think I have to add this to my pile of things from your shop I have yet to make... and the ones I have already made. :-)

  4. Love the marking sampler Lori, lovely finish. Will need to have this.


  5. Hi Lori,
    You do such beautiful work. I really like that you used Gold as the front of the Sewing kit...very lovely.

  6. The needle roll is lovely, Lori. I'm looking forward to the Picturetrail update.
    I like what you did with your
    blog header.

  7. Lori, this is just beautiful! Looking forward to the pattern. Thanks.
