~ Light-hearted ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!

well we have gone from "Frosty Bottom Farm" - 
to "Soggy Bottom Farm" in the matter of 2 days it seems.

it's ok, I am a lover of the rain.

(n) a lover of rain; someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days.

 ... such small things, like the rain can make me happy ~
like digging through my linen closet and coming up with this small crocheted heart
made by my mom so many years ago...

it is such a sweet thing ~ made with loving hands and a need to create.
me thinks I will now keep it out all the time and enjoy it's simple beauty and love that went into making it.

another heart I'm working on...
this one I started a week or so ago and haven't been able to get back to it
but this afternoon I will ply my needle again and finish it ~

do you see that I've added a small stuffed 'patch' of calico?
I'll be embroidering around that patch as it is meant to signify a broken heart 
that is healing and now becoming full once again ~ 

there is just so much sadness and cruelty in this world today ~ we need to begin healing.

this guy ~ my Iggy, is another dear-heart in my life.
although he can get the wind up his fuzz-butt, race around like a floofed-up rocket
 and attack my ankles at the drop of a thread-spool...

I love him dearly.

Hoping your day is filled with love, healing and friendship
Blessings from the Farm 
~ Lori
