Hello Autumn

It was a super busy summer....the retreat barn is up and running and we had several retreats here at the farm.  It has been a blessing having so many ladies come from all over the USA and we have loved having each and everyone! 
Frank Bielec (yes, he was on Trading Spaces) is a wonderful primitive folk artist and he has graciously allowed me to turn his artwork into needle punched, applique, and rug hooked pieces.  I am working on putting together some of his designs and offering them as patterns.
The one above is called
so far I have a sample and pattern made for needle punch and I am working on one for wool applique.
If you are interested the patterns will be in my Etsy shop or you can email me if you would like to purchase one.

This one is a table mat called
Winter Time
It is about 18" across and is done with wool and is very easy to make.

Over The Hills of Snow is a needle punch book that holds your scissors, pins, and needles
It is needle punched on the front and has wool applique on the inside!

Matilda is a whimsical happy little witch and is a fun wall hanging.

I have been missing from blogging as summer was so very busy!  The grandkiddos are growing up so fast.  Sloan is now 9 years old and loves playing kid pitch baseball and is the catcher for his team.  He loves it!  Eva Mae has started full day pre-school and is 4 1/2 years old and has the most beautiful blue eyes you ever saw.  She loves school and playing on the playground.  Little Betty Rae is 2 1/2 and is going to preschool for a couple of hours a week and knows all her ABC's and thinks she can do anything Sloan and Eva can and of course she tries it all.  Can you tell MoMo loves those grandkiddos and might be a bit partial.
Our days here on this earth are so very's like a whisper and before you know it a year is gone and then another and another.  Hug those near and dear to you, hop of the couch and go outside and play, smile at those who look grumpy who knows you just might brighten their day!
Thanks for stopping by my blog!  Check back soon I hope to share a free pattern!
Happy Trails.....Ginger

Good to hear from you Ginger! Peace on Earth and Winter Time look like fun patterns to hook or punch! I agree with you... life is too short... to be grumpy! :-) I was just thinking about that today as I was running errands... it seems a lot of folks make a hobby of being angry? So sad.... anyways... hugs to you and yours from Joisey! :-)

I love Frank's designs and so wonderful of him to allow you use of his designs.
I think the Peace on Earth would be fun in appliqué too, would be perfect for wool and I Love the simplicity of the design.
