Preparing ~

can it really be September the 12th?
…am I dreaming?
have I fallen into a time-warp 
somewhere between then & now?

...me thinks so…
at any rate,
progress is being made ~

alien-looking, naked witch-folk waiting for their clothing….

 While I'm on the mend, 
and stitching my fingers to the bone ~
Peter & Chris
 have been busily readying the grounds for the show
which rumor has it in these parts that it is about a week away now.
(insert time-warp here)

they have been playing Tom Sawyer ~
{{except neither one is named Tom,
and they are using red paint.}}
doesn't my shop fence look MAH-velous??

a new look


the perfect shade of red to me ~
 it's close to DMC 918 for those 'in-the-know'

if this is how the fence looks all spruced-up,
then by golly I cannot wait to get the shop, barn & FARMHOUSE done!
{not all done before the show, unfortunately}
...but soon enough. 

fresh paint

 there are 'other' shenanigans constantly going on around here too ~
Roxy & Lazy are inseparable now, and although she is still super-rambunctious,
she does have her tender moments…

Roxy teasing Lazy ~ always wanting to play….

 Lazy has had ENOUGH!


 I think she got the hint….

there's my best-friends….

Today On Tap:
stringing corn/gourd garlands
finishing witch dolls
framing smaller samplers
painting a few canvases
stuffing a few more pumpkins
...hook, punch, stitch…

* Blessed be *

Loved Kelley's comment!! I'd be lucky to get two of the things on your list done!! The fence looks grand. A nice pop of color. Hope you feel much better soon.
Hugs, Lori

OK....so the weather will get the rain out of its system THIS Saturday leaving a lovely day for the 20th! Love the photos of Roxy and Lazy and the fence looks "Fabulous, Dahling!"
Hope you're feeling better. You've been in our thoughts.

Sure hope I get to see you next week. Been way too long my friend! Oxox

Love the new fence color........it will go with everything. Nice that lazy and Roxy have become such pals, I told you a young dog (or cat) added to a family with an older pet will be good for and add spunk to the older pet . Even if the frolicking is short lived in duration, and then they need a nap. Have a nice weekend enjoy the cooler temps.

Hiya lori, fence is gorgeous, the gate is screaming for a big bold stencil announcing *Notforgottten Farm*. Maybe another ~do~ on Peter's honey-do list;) Have a great weekend!

Lori Ann Corelis said...

So happy you are mending . . . and stitching, and stuffing! Have an awesome show . . take a little time to rest and BREATHE!


Tammy Burks said...

Looks like your new dog is fitting right in! LOVE that fence....AWESOME!!

Susan McShannon-Monteith said...

The shop looks great, so inviting with that red fence.
You're so busy but I do hope you're taking time to rest too.
After all once the Fall sale is done and the one up in Michigan is behind you next it will be Winter works you'll be playing with...

Happy to hear you are feeling better.
The fence looks wonderful and the vines and that owl flag with set it off perfectly. Coming to Virginia this week wish it could last to Sat so I could come back and visit on show day:( I guess I will see you in November in Ohio.
Boy Rox has some beautiful long legs, she is stretching up. Take care.
