Welcome dear friends!
Today is a rainy day here on the farm,
which is just fine with me...love a good rainy day!
Schoolgirl Samplar Club Update...
The last stitch was officially crossed at 2:15 in the morning...
Everything is ready for framing tonight!
The title has been chosen ~
"Jewel of Wisdom"
While I was stitching away,
this fabric kept calling my name...
Some of you may remember me sharing this fabric several
months ago...well I decided to make a little companion
pinkeep to go with the samplar!
I'll be sharing both the framed samplar
and little pinkeep companion.
This samplar has a graceful border,
a short verse written by me, and
several symbolic motifs which
include a crown, key, heart
I'll also be sharing the symbolic
meaning behind these chosen motifs!
Limited memberships are available through
my Etsy shop, which includes all the club information.

Also underway is my next antique reproduction samplar
"Lydia Barnes Pidgeon 1827"
Weeks Dye Works has graciously provided
me with the perfect linen...
I can hardly wait to start stitching on this lovely
40ct Tin Roof linen...more late night stitching ahead!
I love surprises, look what my sweet son
Samuel gifted me this morning...
Sam's been picking me Dandelions ever
since he was a little guy...now he's almost 24
and picks them for tradition!
Tomorrow I'm taking the day off and heading
to Gold Rush in Rochester, Minnesota!
I've dusted off my favorite
market cart named "Matilda"...
Her wheels are all oiled and ready to
hit the pavement!
I'd be lost without this handy cart,
it can hold a lot of goodies!
2016, marks the 44th year for this annual
Gold Rush antique market.
Hope to find something really special!
The Peonies will be blooming soon...
The tight round buds are growing bigger each day!
I think these city flowers are so pretty...
I pass by them on my way to the post office...some
people are such good gardeners!
Weekend Soul Food...
"The fear of the Lord is
the beginning of knowledge:
but fools despise wisdom and instruction."
Perfect timing, the UPS truck just pulled
into our driveway...Yay, the WDW "Straw" linen
just arrived for the Schoolgirl Samplar Kits!
Hope you enjoy a fun and relaxing weekend,
Strawberries made from a vintage German
grain sack, wool tops and vintage ribbon...
