Stitching, Punching, and Painting



It's been a cold weekend and we climbed into the 40's add the Oklahoma wind and you need to grab a jacket. I oxford punched this little field bunny with wool yarns. I still need to bind it!



I stitched this up and just love how it turned out. It's a pattern by Nutmeg Hare.
It measures 11 x 13 inches and would like to find an old frame to put it in.



I have several wood frames and decided to do a few appliques. Just grabbed some scrap wool, scissors, material, and threads and had these done in an evening.







I also painted this flock of sheep to make some tags for our booth. Quick and simple very little details just prim.



Well the guys showed up last week with their yellow boots on and by the afternoon they had us a new parking area poured.



It's cured enough that work begins this week on putting up a roof and start enclosing the portion that will become a large gathering room.

Time to get busy this week going through a few things to put in a garage sale with my sisters and declutter a few things around here! Looks to be another busy week but with the help of a lil' boy it will fly by.

Well better go crawl under a warm quilt and catch a few winks before a lil' boy comes knocking at my door wanting some breakfast! Ahhh life is so good when what makes us happy is not in what we own but what lives within our hearts!

Happy Trails to You....Ginger
