Quiet Farmhouse...

Welcome dear needlefolk friends!

This week has been very challenging after the
  passing of our loyal laddy Winston...the farmhouse
is so horribly quiet! 

However, I was so touched by all the warm 
and caring comments that were left in respect to
his passing...please know that each and every one was 
greatly appreciated!

I'm so blessed to have such caring friends...LOVE YOU ALL!

I was even gifted with this beautiful
bouquet of flowers on Saturday from a local
stitching friend...thank you Dana!

And, my spirits were lifted by this sweet doggy
sympathy card send in the mail...thank you LaNelle!

Just today, my husband was searching the 
internet for Scottie pups...not sure what will come
of that?  But, I'll keep you all posted if a
new king will take the throne of our

Early Maiden Workbasket Club Update...

Yes, the time is quickly approaching 
for the first club kit release!

During my afternoon quiet time,
I've been gathering my thoughts, and 
planning out all the details...

Now, I just need to get those thoughts
designed and ready to start stitching the model!

I'm sure it will take a few more cups of
my favorite coffee & tea before things
all come together and meet my
final approval!

My mind loves to wander like
crazy once I'm in bed and just can't 
seem to shut bedside notepad
is a must have to jot down those 
random thoughts!

Lately my mind keeps focusing on
cleaning, organizing, and de~cluttering!

Deciding on what to keep and 
what to let go of!

So many things inherited, 
so many things acquired...equals too much stuff!

Little by little, the cleaning has begun,
and it is such a liberating feeling!

My blog wouldn't be complete without
a few of our weekend country pics...

Love this old shed nestled in the valley
surrounded with a blanket of snow!

Beef cattle enjoying some hay!

Weekend Soul Food...

But thou, 
when thou prayest,
enter into thy closet,  
and when thou hast shut thy door,
pray to thy Father which is in secret;
and thy Father which seeth in secret shall
reward thee openly.

Matthew 6:6...KJV

Wishing you a wonderful weekend,
filled with contentment as we share the 
love of our needles!

Kindly, Tammy
