Where Has The Time Gone.....

Seasons come and go and it's been quite a long time since I have visited this blog.  It involves turning on the computer and it's not something I do very often.  The ease of posting with a phone has changed things and I do miss the days of blogging.  I started this blog way back when Sloan was just a little fella and now he is in middle school and like all good things he is growing up to be a young man and the lil' girls are growing up as well.  

We had a little snow a few weeks ago and the barn looked pretty with a bit of snow falling.  We continue to have classes and workshops and our store is open more often.  We have wool flowing over and we are always looking for more room to hang new patterns and places to put kits.

We have started our own block of the month featuring little wool appliques!  Pati Jane and I have designed them and we have enjoyed them so much.  

We are no longer doing over night retreats so we are remodeling......changes are often for the best.  It has given us so much more room for an addition to add more merchandise and a workroom for us to do store more wool.   

We have make it take it classes and also, have teachers coming in throughout the year!

Just a few of the patterns we carry......

We carry a large selection of threads!

A few more of the patterns!

One of the classes is a Barn Quilt......

Don't you love the hummingbird!!!!

Another beauty 

Lots of simple designs

I sorta have an addiction to applique

#13 is Sloan he was just a lil' toddler when I started this blog.   He absolutely loves sports....He has grown taller than me and he just loves that!

Eva Mae is now in the 2nd grade and is at the top of her class.  She loves reading and crafts.  She is learning to knit and sew on a sewing machine.  Plus she is taking karate.  

Miss Betty Rae keeps us quite entertained.....she is in kindergarten and learning to read.  She is my helper when it comes to feeding the goats and chickens.  She just might be a farmgal one day!  

We have been so very blessed to have our grandkiddos live so close!  It's been such fun watching them as they grow up.

Last year we lost Miss Annie she went with me to Silver Dollar City to vend for 3 years.  She was one of the most sweetest and loveliest lady I believe I have had the honor to know.  She will forever be missed but not forgotten.  We had such a wonderful time together.

And always on my heart.....miss my daddy so much.  

Thanks for stopping by it's been way to long.  I'll try to come back again soon.

Wool Hexagons

Ruffled Feathers Day at the farm bring with it lots of wool applique.  We are working on a program Stitching Society with 180 different hexagons.  Each month we work on 15 hexagons.  With each month we also, make a few extra to make them into table mats, needle cases, ornaments, etc.

It's a great way to learn new stitches!
Every month is related to a theme!
It's going to be one fantastic quilt when I get it all put together.

Life Around The Farm

It's been quite a while since I posted on this blog....
Life takes it's twists and turns.
Opening up a retreat center and a little store oh who am I kidding I am drifting  right on out of the store door into the big workshop area with wool and patterns!  LOVE having so many wonderful ladies come join us for one day events or 3 to 4 day retreats! 
They think they are blessed in turn I AM THE ONE BLESSED!

So many wonderful ladies attend  from different states or right here in Oklahoma.....there is something about women gathering to do handwork!
WE offer free days of stitching, hooking, quilting, applique, needle punch, rug punch, knitting, crochet.....whatever you want to work on!
Some days we serve lunch and some days they each bring their own lunch!
We have Farm Chick Days, Ruffled Feather Days, and Wool Quilting Group Days....
(I post the dates on FB if your interested just follow my page Prairie Moon Primitives)
My mom and daughter help a lot along with at times my sisters and of course,  Danny is always helping to add more shelves, hang up items, and clean up!
Our daughter Jenn is mom to our two lil' granddaughters....she stays busy helping here and working for Danny, too!  She is speedy and is all about getting things organized!  I am the fly by the seat of your pants gal she is trying to rein me in....good luck Jenn!
Miss Betty is our youngest can you believe she is almost 4!
Unbelieveable we better watch out this kiddo is growing up way too quick....she is our spunky one for sure!  (takes after her mom)
All three grandkiddos are my pride and joy!  They come over a couple of times a week and are more like brother and sisters than cousins.

Sloan is ten.....he will be eleven later this year....I started this blog when he was just a baby!
He plays baseball and is an excellent catcher for his age.  He loves anything ball.  He even has me out playing catch but I will NOT pitch to him anymore....
Eva Mae is almost six and loves to do crafts.  She repurposes things into new crafts as in she will take apart her sisters artwork to make new! OOps!  She does love to draw, paint, and work with beads...she has a little craft area in her room.  She may just turn out to be running this place one day!

Life around here has dad left this world for his home in heaven last August.  He is celebrating with our Lord and has a body free of pain.  I can't wait to see him again!!  We sure miss him.  Danny lost his Dad in November and what a blessing it will be see him again, too. 
We were able to celebrate one last birthday in July with my dad.  He celebrated 76 years of life on this earth and lots of family and friends blessed us with coming that day.
Christmas 2017 brought a few tears as we reminisced about our dads and what wonderful memories we had growing up!
My mom and sisters are very special to me.   Love abounds and we hold each other up so many times. 

So as we have enjoyed the beginnings of 2018 we hope that you have a Happy, Healthy, and wonderful 2018!
