Loving thanks to:
Dixie Samplar/Terri & Ridgely
and Michele & Cathy 
~ for making this yet another friendly, fun and fabulous retreat.

I want to personally thank ALL of the merchant mall Volunteers 
for helping me pack/unpack, load/unload and attend my booth when I needed a break ~
also to my booth 'neighbors' for helping me carry my totes and stuff to my car.

For those who have passed along their unending well-wishes for Joan & Arthur,
we sweetly Thank You.
Arthur has been hospitalized since Wednesday, things are not the best.
please continue good thoughts of peace and healing for both of them
for now, I am heading out to the barn to
 love on 
roll in the box of 
um....visit our puppies.
 ~ their little eyes are opening up and I want them to see me!
then I will relax a bit with my needle and thread.

Blessings from the Farm 
~ Lori
