~ Country Animal Folk ~

Hello friends and neighbors...are you staying cool
in your corner of the world?

Hope you enjoyed this week, and took time to 
do something special that you really enjoy!

 Humble Hare Handwork Club Update...

"Humble Gatherings"....kits scheduled to ship August 20th.

When beginning a new sampler I love picking out a different 
sewing bag or basket and filling it with either inherited or acquired
 notions that will make my stitching time a special time!

My favorite antique ivory "hare" needlecase.

The first thing I do when I'm ready to start stitching is to thread  
a needle for all the colors used in the sampler.

Six warm autumn colors were used for Humble Gatherings.

 "Country French" linen in the color "Golden Needle" was used.

The finishing fabric is from Andover Fabrics by 
Renee Nanneman.

It's a wonderful match for this sampler!

The model is all stitched and just waiting to be  
finished...I'll share the finish sometime next week.

I almost completely missed the Fair is year!

  The last day was on Sunday and by the time we stopped lots of  
the animals we're getting loaded up to head home, but
I still got lots of pictures....

Meet "Johnny B Goode", I'd love to take him back home
with me...what a sweetheart!

This is "Patches" a spotted hare.

Oh, I wish you could hear the chirping going on!  
Notice the two little chicks in the
lower right corner...looks like they're "kissing"!

Splish~splash...the ducks are taking a bath!

This guy must be practicing for a crowing contest...really 
powerful sounding!

Caught this guy "deep in thought"!

What a great profile!

Check out the beautiful feathers on this!

"Did I do that?"

Wait until you see the next couple of beauties...

What a peaceful, content look, definitely daydreaming about 
something...and wow look at the hair~dew! 

This "blonde" was very friendly, and her noise as soft
as silk!

A wonderful "Nubian" Goat...looks like one of Tasha Tudor's!

Just a quick little nap before heading back home!

This mama is whispering; "Now don't talk to strangers"!

Patiently waiting for their ride back home!

~ Weekend Soul Food ~

Be not afraid, ye beast of the field:  for the
 pastures of the wilderness do spring, 
for the tree beareth her fruit, 
the fig tree and the vine do yield their strengh.

~ Joel 2:22...KJV ~

Have a great weekend friends...see you on Monday!

Take care, relax and stitch!
