~ Looking Ahead ~

Good Morning 
Friends & Folk...
we awoke to raindrops on our rusty tin roof, and big, fat droplets on the old way glass windows.
sometimes I like to lay in my warm bed peacefully before getting up...just for a moment or two,
~ and think on all of the things I'm thankful for.

it is a peaceful way to begin the day!

speaking of thankful,
i have had the nicest comments over 'there' on social media regarding the little
Faded Hearts Trinket Box class that I am planning for early 2024 ~

more details will be added, like the actual date {lol} and class fee, as soon as I work them out.

the topper on the box was punched using 3 ply cotton floss from Valdani, in muted old colors...
some threads variegated, others not.

the box is a 3 inch round paper mache box, 
~ that we will cover using beautiful papers from
Cinnamon Creek Folk Art

I am planning an In-Studio class for this project,
which means the students will receive their class kits/supplies at the time of class.

then, I will offer the PATTERN {paper or PDF} in my Etsy shop
for those who wish to create the project.
there will be a supply/resource list included with the pattern,
~ for you to purchase everything needed to make the project.
I will also have a tutorial here on my blog so you can have life-time access 
on how to complete your very own Faded Hearts Trinket Box.

kindly note:
** I will not be offering kits for this project **

 I hope you will join along in the fun of creating with me!

~ hearts aren't just for Valentine's Day you know....
and these folky Faded hearts are just the thing to make your heart sing!

Stay tuned, as more info will be coming in the next few days
Blessings from the Farm

Your beginning sentence with raindrops on the tin roof reminds of when I'd have a sleep over with my cousins in their grandmother's house. It was such a peaceful sound which put me to sleep.
The vintage text adds to your creation. Bet you have a full house with the class.

I plan on learning punch needle, have had what I need for some time. As soon as I settle and regain some patience, will give it a try. This box is so stinkin' sweet.

Lucky you with the raindrops. We had a couple sprinkles, but if you blinked too fast you missed them. I love hearts and yours that you punched are precious.

Unfortunately, we don't have a metal roof, but there is a rain spout on one corner wall of my bedroom and sometimes I get to fall asleep hearing that welcome gurgle as the rain drains down to the ground.
I love your little heart trinket box. Hearts are such a simple design but hold so much meaning.
