~ Diversions & Distractions ~

 Hello Friends & Folk!
and greetings on this fine November day to you ~

I pondered over whether to title this post as such:
 'diversions & distractions'
... because really, 
the subject matter that is of today's posting is neither a diversion nor a distraction.
 it is something that I have been wanting to do/doing in between needlework projects...
yes, I am referring to beading again! 

I went hog-wild at our local Joann stores last week ~
not looking for beads, but absolutely falling into a 60%-off sale!
woot-woot & score!

yes I bought beads.
and charms, clasps, toggles and other sundry findings too ~
I also purchased the 2 storage containers you see above and below.
oh, and a book too, on wire-wrapping for jewelry.

I have been slowly incorporating beads into my embroideries
and other needlework projects ~ but I really need to keep focused on the work at hand,
and that is finishing up new goods for our open house on Dec. 6th & 7th ~

You may remember that Peter made Hannah 
a bunch of wooden earrings last year for Christmas presents? 
well she loved them, and so did I ~ and so did quite a few of our followers!

so Peter & I have decided to make more ~
both for our customers who visit our Shop & Studio here at the farm,
and we will be offering them for sale ON THIS BLOG after our open house!

we're putting together a page here on the blog
that will allow you to shop directly for our 
wood/wire/embroidered finished jewelry
and ~ we are excited!!!!

Photos below show a smattering of finished earrings that I made recently
for the open house ~ there will be a variety of styles/shaped/wood/wire/beads
with no two pair ever being exactly the very same ~ 

hope you love them as much as we do!

 I'll post more info on
 how you can go about purchasing some after the open house ~

wishing you all a 
peaceful and creative Sunday!

Blessings from the Farm 
~ Lori
