~ Thursday Morning Musings ~

A peace-full morning here at the farm ~
early morning hooking, enjoying the calmness of this old farmhouse....

I've been working on a 3 dimensional pumpkin - 
and getting a little more done before farmwife chores start calling.
{pattern purchased from Etsy seller: BeFruitful Kreations}

as I finished hanging the laundry, 
I had to go grab the camera...realizing it's the last day of Summer
I wanted to capture the beauty of the morning.

so, come on a little stroll with me ~

Blessings from the Farm
