~ Sunday, Fun-day ~

Hello Friends & Folk ~
and a happy December Sunday to you all!

I'm hankering to work on some more embroidery 
~ and am taking a look back on my previous works...

and here are a few snaps of what I'm working on now...
 not sure what this woll become just yet...
but I love the old blue fabric with much-needed repair-holes
and the Simply Wool threads from The Gentle Art Inc.

This little girl {below} has been waiting in my workbasket for a very long time ~
 I just stitched her a spool of thread to hold
and will simply let my needle dictate what will come next...

I love looking at my nest of threads ~
all of the colors tangled together make me happy!

... seeing things in black and white
help me sort out color hues & values while I work.

If you are an Embroidery Enthusiast, hop on over to my Facebook Group:
and show us what you're working on today!
Hoping you all enjoy a beautiful Sunday filled with peaceful moments!

Blessings from the Farm

~ Snow Day? ~

could there really be 
in the forecast? 
{fingers, toes, legs and eyes are crossed}
but, if those flakes don't fall from the sky ~ I can still make it snow somehow!
...with my needle, thread or hook and wool of course ;)

here is a little hook-ling that I finished yesterday...
please meet "Mr. Jingles" 
~ a snappy little snow-guy who loves to prune his holly bushes!
the pattern for Mr. Jingles will be available soon, in paper or PDF and also on serged linen.
 I am working on a sort-of 'companion' for him {here's a hint: cookies}
....and will show you snaps of that later this aft on my IG or FB pages.

I have been a Hooker-by-day, Stitcher-by-night lately!
just the opposite of what I usually am.... 
hooking in the shop during the day, then coming into the farmhouse to stitch at night.
working on this ~
a design to be in a wonderful magazine come Spring!

I'm enjoying the linen, 36ct 'Bark' Edinburgh from Wichelt
and DMC threads.

our Christmas cactus is beautiful this year ~
so many blossoms!

... and here is the extent of my farmhouse holiday/winter decorating thus far:

tree is up but no decorations on it {yet}!
{to tell the truth, I love the simple white lights only}

I just want to keep it simple. tuck in a few fresh greens and I'll be done.

Don't Forget!
we are OPEN TODAY from 10:00 - 3:00
and tomorrow {Sat. Dec. 9th 10:00 - 3:00} is the LAST DAY of our Holiday Open House Week
and rumor has it that Santa & Mrs Claus 
may stop in for a cookie or two, so you may just meet them while you're here!

Hoping your day is Merry & Bright and full of all things creative!
Blessings from the Farm
