Welcome dear needlefolk friends ~
are you enjoying the summer...for it passes
There is a unique magic that occurs when
you sit upon a porch...it is often looked
upon as being lazy!
Actually much good and valuable
work is completed, as you give yourself
permission to leave the world behind.
Time is so quickly gobbled up and we forget
the importance of simply being ourselves.
Before stress relief was a prosperous
industry...there was goode old porch sitting!

Antique Sampler Reproduction
If only time would allow...I would
stitch all day long!!
However, I do thoroughly enjoy
each and every stitch I do find the time
to cross with great passion!
I love working on this samplar so much,
it truly has "A Goode Foundation"...
The third border is all complete,
moving onto the lovely motifs,
saving the verse for last!
Upcoming Bee Samplar Update...
The chosen linen will be
Weeks Dye Works 36ct ~ Tin Roof
With limited time this week,
I didn't get as far as I had hoped...still
working on the design!
The stitch count will be 161W by 161H...
It will be finished into this 10" by 10" frame.
More updates to come!
Our wild Blackberries here on the farm
are finally ready for picking...
The gnats can really take the
fun out of berry picking...thank goodness
for bug spray!
Back at the farmhouse...it was worth
all the bug bites!
The lazy days of summer...
A ducks version of good old fashioned
This is my all time favorite roadside barn...
I hope no one ever takes it down...that would
make me so sad!
(Between Viroqua and Richland Center, Wisconsin)
My weekend plans revolve around getting as
many stitches crossed as I possibly can!
Hope you too will find lots of quality stitching time!
Weekend Soul Food...
In Search of consistency ~
My good intentions and desires do not always
I struggle with consistency in many areas of my life,
like when it come to eating healthy, and especially exercising!
Most importantly is my desire to give God first place in my
life and walk with Him daily, seeking His way...not mine!
I start out strong, but sadly...often fall short!
"For bodily exercise profiteth little:
but godliness is profitable unto all things,
having promise of the life that now is,
and of that which is to come."
1 Timothy 4:8...KJV
Hoping YOU can enjoy some
quality "porch sitting" this weekend!
Fill your heart with goodness,
