 Hello Friends & Folk!
...sweet mid-October greetings to you on this *sparkler* of a day!

I have been a busy little stitching-witch lately ~
the busiest season is upon us now,
readying ourselves for holiday sales both in the Farm Shop and on Etsy...
as well as finishing models for new designs-to-come and class models too!

here is a quick cross stitch that I'll have ready by weeks' end ~
it isn't named yet, but there is a turkey, pumpkins and corn.
I will be adding beads to this and am dying to see the finish myself!!

another embroidery design in my hoop ~ 
this is that little Fox in the Holly brooch that I shared with you previously on IG & FB:

Joan & I will be heading down the dusty road to Tipp City OH
a week from this coming Tuesday for a workshop with Ali Strebel
... I'll be teaching my class students this project below
called "Crow Jack" ~ combination punch needle and rug hooking
{I love it!} 
I will also be vending there so come out for a visit!

...and I'm almost finished on the background of this, 
which I'm calling "the Yule Mule" LOL
~ punched with DMC & Valdani pearl cottons:
me thinks I'll be adding some beads to this one too,
cuz I am slightly smitten with beads/beading now.

and this is my project in the new huge Winter edition of 
Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher Magazine:
a needle punched owl with glass eyes wearing a tophat!

well I am off to do some chores before sitting down to stitch on the patio
where I will absorb some vitamin D from this beautiful October sunshiney day!
hoping you all find time to create something beautiful...

Blessings from the Farm
