~ Getting Ready ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk 
and happy Monday to you all!

It is a crisp, overcast and delightful day here at the farm ~
the temps are low, and the breeze brings with it
 the occasional flutter of yellowed leaves which float down 
from our many black walnut trees. 

a hint of things to come.

I have been gathering fabrics, wools and threads lately
 since I am in full Autumn swing creatively!
I am working on finished goods for our upcoming 
Gathering of Primitive Friends Show
{which will be here before we know it}


we enjoy so much 
having our friends come out to our beloved farm & shop with us and our vendors....
and we love seeing our vendor friends each year as well!
this year, our list of vendors will include:
Lee & Robin Harrison of Millstone Mercantile
Teresa Miller of Teresa's Primitive Treasures
Dorrie & Susan of Olde Threads
Donna Smith of Southern Star Antiques
Joan Spalding of Olde Rectory Antiques
Becky Carney of A Wing & a Prayer
Jill Bivens of Fat Cat Soap Works
Jack & Kathy Newman of Everlastings
Becky Noland of Lucy Beam Love in Stitches
Kay Werner with her fabulous painted Floorcloths {new this year!}
Kathy Barrick of French Sentiments/Kathy Barrick Designs {a returning friend!}
Kris Miller of Spruce Ridge Studios { new this year & YAY!!!}
and, wonderful food from
The Master's Inn

those of you who return to us year after year will know that this is not a huge event ~
but one more intimate, with invited vendors only...showcasing them & their offerings better
because we believe in the quality of things, not necessarily the quantity.
and, since this is our home, front yard & barnyard that we share with our animal friends,
 we feel it's just nicer for everyone that way ♥

so make some plans to come out to the farm & enjoy yourselves!

here is an applique that I've been working on for the show, 
it will be available at the show in the farm shop along with more of my finished folk art ~






I received the model of my When Pigs Fly cross stitch design back from Beth
{ who did another wonderful job }
and will be adding it to our Etsy shop today...
isn't it awesome??
Thank you muchly Beth!

{please overlook the wrinkles, still needs pressed & framed}






I will also be listing the When Pigs Fly Punch Needle pattern, the Owl & Jack pattern, 
and our new little wooden sewing clamp:
{ i have to say...I love this handy little thing when I'm punching!}



 Hoping your day is one filled with all Good Things and much creativity ~

Blessings from the Farm
 ~ Lori

  2. I will someday go to the Farm. I will someday go to the Farm. I will someday go to the Farm. (Yes, I will!). Love the appliqué (that background material is especially awesome for the colors you've chosen). And "When Pigs Fly" as a cross stitch is absolutely wonderful! Enjoy the day, Lori! Autumn is right around the corner...

  7. I am joining the chorus of the above folks who very much wish we could attend your show!! It sounds just perfect and relaxing. Your new witch appliqué is quite cute and I love the pumpkin colors you chose as well.
    How lucky you were to start your week off with a bit of cooler weather and a few early yellow leaves to bring the message. My Shumard Oak at the end of the driveway has beautiful big fat acorns. Today, I saw one when I went to get the mail. Not exactly as poignant as a cool morning, but with 90+ degree days, I will take any small sign of Fall I get!!

  8. This sounds fun! I'm talking to hubby about coming next year.

  15. I feel so blessed and fulfilled. I've been reluctant in applying for a loan i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got a loan from Progresive Loan INC. & we both confirmed it and i also went ahead to apply, today am a proud owner of my company and making money for my family and a happy mom. Well i'm Annie Joe by name from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. As a single mom with three kids it was hard to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was referred by my co-worker to a godsent lender advertising to give a loan at 2% interest rate. I sent them a mail using their official email address (progresiveloan@yahoo.com) and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved, and I was directed to the Bank site where I withdrawed my loan directly to my account. To cut the story short am proud of my hair stylist company and promise to testify to the world how my life was transformed.. If you are in need of any kind of loan, i advise you contact Progresive Loan INC and be financially lifted Email: progresiveloan@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565

  17. หลายๆท่านมักเจอะเจอแบบงี้แน่ๆจ้ะ เพราะว่าข้าราชการรับรถยนต์พบบ๊อยบ่อยครั้งด้วยเหมือนกัน จะต้องใช้รถยนต์ในวันสองในอนาคตนี้แล้ว แม้กระนั้นยังไม่จองรถยนต์เลย ค้ำประกันเลยแพงมั่นใจๆและก็ปัญหาที่ลูกค้าจะพบตามมามันก็คือ รถเช่าเต็ม แต่ว่าก็ยังมีทางออกนะคะ ทำให้คุณจำเป็นต้องใช้รถเช่ารุ่นใหญ่ขึ้น โน่นก็แสดงว่าชำระค่าเช่าแพงที่กว่า รวมทั้งอีกปัญหา เป็นการส่งคูปองตัวจริงด้วยไปรษณีย์ EMS จะส่งมาไม่ทัน จะต้องเดินทางมารับคูปองด้วยตัวเอง
