Humble Hares On My Mind ~

Welcome friends, hope you enjoyed a great day!

The weather here today is absolutely gorgeous at 73°.

Plus, Wisconsinites seem to have big smiles on their
faces today after another Green Bay Packer
win yesterday....making us 6-0!!!!

It's hard to believe, but it's already time to
start thinking about the next release for
  "Humble Hare Handwork Club"...

Ideas are being jotted down as they flow through my mind!

This next release is scheduled to ship 
November 21, 2015.

Sunday's Secret Samplar Update...

I'm so excited about this samplar as everything is starting 
 to come together...ready to thread my needle on Sunday!

The linen just arrived today,
Weeks Dye Works 36ct ~ Straw.

It's absolutely gorgeous, a perfect color 
 with a very warm antique look!

The model will be worked in 
Au Ver A Soie from Paris, France.
 (Soie means Silk in French)

This company has been in business since 1820,
with over 1,000 shades to choose from, I'll
be using their "Soie d' alger" silk line.

The finished samplar pattern WILL include  
DMC as the alternative.

I'm anticipating getting started with my first stitch 
this coming Sunday!

Along with the really chilly nights we've been having
comes Mr. Frost!

Just look at how pretty the 
Sunflower's were BEFORE Mr. Frost... 

Happy as can be soaking up all the warm sunshine!

Now, not so happy...

Sadly, all pretty things must fade away!

A time to plant, and a time to pluck up that 
which is planted...Ecclesiastes 3:2  (KJV)  

Look who's all packed up and heading to Florida
for the Winter...

This fellow has had enough of Mr. Frost!

And on the other hand look at this sweet little
Bluebird deep in thought...

Just hanging out amidst the Wild Bittersweet!

I love Bluebirds, 
they are a symbol of happiness and optimism!

Do you get enough "ME" time in your daily routine?

If not, a daily quiet time is a relaxing way to reflect 
on the blessings in YOUR life!

Life is Goode, but too short...take time to enjoy yours!

I LOVE this banner...

It makes me think of the verse I chose 
for this weeks soul food!

Weekly Soul Food...

Have not I commanded thee?
BE STRONG and of a good courage; 
be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed:
for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Joshua 1:9...KJV

Well, I'm off to have that coffee break and 
quiet time I was talking about!

Enjoy your week,
