SOUL FOOD...

"Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 
 It is not rude, it is not self~seeking, 
it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  
Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.  
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes,
always perseveres...LOVE NEVER FAILS"
1 Corinthians 13:4~8


It is a choice we 'get' to make in every situation

Isn't it awesome that God gave us the blueprint
 for what LOVE looks like?

This scripture isn't meant for just husbands and wives,
but also for our day to day interactions with people 
in our neighborhoods and workplaces...even how
we treat ourselves!

Kindness and love go hand in hand

πŸ‚πŸ‚πŸ‚

Wishing everyone a warm and relaxing weekend!

Coming Soon..."Sir William Black"

Welcome dear needlefolk friends!

The warm days of summer are quickly
sinking into the past as we welcome autumn 
dressed in her rich hues and delighting
many with her cooler days!

 Many of you may remember the pattern 
 "Miss Isabelle Black" from 2014,
I have been working hard these past couple of
 weeks on a companion for Miss Isabelle!

That's right, Miss Isabelle has a beau, 
 her admirer is quite handsome!

πŸ™€ How about a little sneak peek...
"Sir William Black" is being stitched on 
36ct. Lakeside Linen "Vintage Lentil."

This weekend the final details such as the eyes, ears, shirt 
and a few unseen surprises will be finished up!

Early next week Sir William will be framed and 
then off to the print shop!

Meanwhile, 
Miss Isabelle is patiently 
waiting for his arrival!

A happy little corner of my life, 
is found in the peacefulness of my Studio,
where I love to relax and take 
walking breaks on my treadmill...
Taking me time for walking has always been
a very important part of my life, it's my
"serenity now", a special time for deep 
thinking and daydreaming!

Deeply surrounded by things dear to my heart...

Special things inherited, 
but also many things acquired 
from years of collecting!

Visitor on the farm...

This unusual camouflaged moth was perched for 
over a day to the roof awning of the Studio.


I have no idea what this moth is called??


Rather furry with tree bark markings!

VERY INTENSE LARGE EYES!

πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›

It's fun to pull into the driveway and see my 
little backyard friend waiting for me...

Just sitting in front of the Studio...hanging out!

Rolled my car window down to have a little 
chit chat and take these couple pics!

Actually, every morning rabbits sits for long 
periods of time in our driveway, and it
appears that they're eating the grit,
much like birds do.  

They're definitely doing it for a reason,
not exactly sure why...maybe to sharpen their teeth!!!

Country Cottontail...

Welcome needlefolk friends!

Today we have been gifted a gorgeous 
midsummer day.

It seems to be a goode olde fashioned kind of day,
love the coolness in the air!

Please meet my special little backyard friend...

After casually talking with this little fellow
all summer long, my voice being very familiar to him,
his curiosity grows stronger each day!


We enjoy our little daily chit chats...a very good
listener indeed to all my silly ramblings!


I've enjoyed watching this fellow grow from
just a little pip squeak into this full grown country cottontail!

Glimpse of a Mississippi River small town...

So quaint, took this on a Sunday afternoon drive,
but can't remember the name of the little town!

Finally Finished...

Welcome dear needlefolk friends!

Here in my corner of the world we are enduring much
heavy rain and lots of damaging flooding!

Endless roads are closed due to washed out 
bridges, the small nearby town of 
Coon Valley was evacuated last night!

I was suppose to pick up thread for club kits
today at Wichelt Imports, in Stoddard, Wisconsin,
but that didn't happen, they had to close due to
 flooding, plus that is one of the highways that
 is closed...hope they will be able to re~open soon!

Finally, sharing with you today is the finished
project for "Prairie Sisters Handworke Club"
kit number three...

"Kindred Hearts" Needlekeeper Book

The main theme for this project is centered around the
 Tulip, which symbolizes unity, perfect love, and 
the three tips of a Tulip symbolize the trinity of
God the Father, God the Son & God the Holy Spirit.

The back side the the Needlekeeper can be personalized...
with your choice of date and initials.

The model initials "DB" are in 
tribute to club member 

Diane Brosten, Anacortes, WA

On the inside...
 Dark Burgundy wool to keep your 
favorite pins & needles.

Then opens to a second layer...
for even more pins & needles!

The scheduled ship date is September 7~10th...all depending
on when Wichelt Imports reopens so I can pick up the thread!

Club "thank you" token charms are just perfect...
They so closely match 
the lock & key that the one sister is holding!


Now, for the club winner of the gift giveaway drawing...

Hope you enjoy this antique egg shaped 
needle case from Germany.

From my home to yours...package is on its way Janet!


It's never to late to join...
Memberships are still available...

Here's a look at how gloomy it was today...
No sun, only rain!

and more...
RAIN ☔

SOUL FOOD...

"Then I will give you rain in due season,
and the land shall yield her increase,
and the trees of the field shall
yield their fruit."

Leviticus 26:4...KJV

πŸ—πŸ—πŸ—

Other than the endless rain, 
things are good.

And my soul is well, I wish the same
for each of you!

Mary Wood's 1837
Adam & Eve Reproduction Sampler Update...
When the finished verse was posted several weeks ago
a spelling error was caught and the word "Paradise"
has been corrected!

Most of the motifs are finished...
I'm excited to finally move onto stitching 
"The Tree of Knowledge."

Hopefully some more progress will be made this week...we'll see!

🐍🐍🐍

You just never know what you might see while
on a country drive in Wisconsin...
A flock a Canadian Geese shading themselves
on a hot midsummer's day!


The old weathered tree was also pretty special...
Old and weathered but still offering a nice 
shady spot to rest!

Some of the flock was starting to get restless...
Probably getting ready for take off!

These fellows were lucky...
They were coming up out of a little brook they discovered!

πŸ¦†πŸ¦†πŸ¦†


Look what was resting on the back porch of our farmhouse...
A beautiful Luna Moth!  

It was a bit of a challenge to get this photo,
but after getting a stool I was able to get a nice close up...love those
feathery antennae.

These moths are just amazing creatures to behold, 
I felt very lucky to get to see one so close up!

πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹

This week I was visiting a local cemetery,
again it was a very hot humid day...
While sitting in my car this squirrel leaped on top 
of this tombstone and sprawled his body over 
the top as a way to cool off...sooo cute! πŸ˜…πŸ˜†πŸ˜…
