It's Been A Very Busy Summer!

It seems like ages since I turned on the computer but here it is 2am and I have finally loaded in some pictures of what is happening around the farm.
We are building a retreat barn  with a workshop area and a store.  It should be in the dry within a week. 

Then the inside work will begin.  Once finished it will have 16 beds in the bunkhouse plenty of room for classes, hook-ins, quilt retreats, scrapbooking, wool applique workshops, crank-ins, etc!

We will have 2 porches with plenty of room for visiting and an area for enjoying some down home country cooking.

I hope to post pictures as we progress on the construction.

I hosted a wool applique workshop a little over a week ago and the gals did a tremendous job on the crazy quilt Christmas stockings.  Thank you so much to all the gals that came out to our farm for the workshop we sure enjoyed having you!

I've also been dyeing a LOT of wool yarn and wool fabric.  It's crunch time on final preparations for going to Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri.  I will vending there from September 11th through October 31st.

It's been such a busy summer.....with the grandkiddos, building a retreat barn, taking the certification class at Amy Oxfords, work, family, and just daily life on the farm but I have to say.....

Happy Trails.....Ginger

With all of the rain, I wondered if you would get your retreat/barn finished in time before rain began again. I love all of your pretty wools.
You have been really busy. So nice to see what you have been up to this summer.

How wonderful - I know your retreat will always be filled.
Isn't it great to see the 'younger' gals interested in this type of work?
