Hello dear friends and needleworkers.
Oh how times flies when you're busy and enjoying what
you're doing....I had to double check my I~phone to
make sure today was actually Friday!
I haven't seen my sweet rabbit friend Abigail all week, I hope she's
okay....maybe she met her Abner and is busy starting
a little family of her own!
I was so excited to get a great deal on Ebay for this awesome piece....
~ Original cast rabbit ~
You can find lots of reproduction examples of this rabbit, but
this was the first original one to come up on
Ebay since I starting doing Ebay about three years ago.
I will be using this rabbit here in my Studio as a scissor holder.
It's so fun to find something special on Ebay. This is one of those
finds that I probably would never have found locally!
I officially finished the model stitching for my new upcoming pattern release last night at 12:15 a.m., and
fell asleep very peacefully knowing I would be able to get
it framed today.
Here is the frame I'll be using....
I was so happy to have an antique frame in my stash that
will work perfectly!
If everything goes as planned I will be releasing this new
pattern on Monday ~ the title will be....

I love to daydream while I'm stitching, and this whole past
week I've been busy planning in my head my
I usually have SO many ideas floating around in my head, and if
I don't jot them down on paper it's easy to forget them!
I love the convenience of making myself notes on my I~phone,
which is with me at all times.
A few weeks ago when I posted the field trip to Country Sampler,

This must be a year for 'MOTHS', I keep seeing unusual
large moths everywhere!
Check out how camouflaged this one is.....
This moth was sitting on the front porch and I nearly
stepped on it!
The wings are fuzzy with iridescent soft colors.
My little Granddaughter Rachel is so full of energy,
here she is taking a little break....
She is such a little lady and LOVES to have her
Our local weatherman is forecasting a beautiful cool
