"Mockingbird's Message"

 Hello and welcome dear needlefolk friends!

With summer quickly coming to an end,
and autumn just around the corner, I'm truly 
enjoying the cooler days with less humidity!

"The Little Messenger" Handworke Club Update

Sharing with you today is the next project ...
"Mockingbird's Message" Pinkeep ~ Club Kit No. 3

When all has waxed cold and only time remaineth, 
let not the memories fade, but let them shine 
as the noon sun, to bring an everlasting 
warmth to our burdened hearts!
(written by my son Samuel Black) 

This design was inspired by an email I 
received from club member Christine of
The Villages, Florida.

She told me how she and her father shared a love 
for birds and that on the day he passed, a Mockingbird
sang a beautiful concerto on a low palm tree branch
outside her home.

Thank you Christine and may God bless and
comfort you with warm memories of the
times you shared together.

A vintage slate blue O~ring to embellish the companion heart pinkeep.

Here on our farm...

On Mother's Day I discovered a Robin's nest in one 
of our Lilac bushes...


...just hatching!


Mama Robin was very upset with me while trying to
take these pictures...


This is one week later, little sleepy heads!
And once again, mama Robin is very upset with me!


Here on the farm...lots of mowing with a splash of patriotism!


Country road trip sighting...corn crib filled to the brim!
