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!

Farm Chick Days and Lots of Applique

Twice a month we have farm chick days here where gals come for the day to enjoy hooking, punching, and stitching!  Look what Christine made!  Isn't this a beautiful wool quilt!!!!

Of course we always have lunch and desserts!  Working on all those projects makes us hungry :)


Little Betty Rae is our youngest grandkiddo she is a cutie pie and is growing up way too fast!

I've been FINISHING projects these are all completed!

The sled and the cardinal are both patterns by Cricket Street Wool....I carry them in my shop and they were so fun to make!

This was a quick pattern by Primitive favorite time of the year is fall. 
There are a bunch more I finished plus I have MANY more I'm working on!  My little shop probably has well over 300 different applique patterns....guess I'm a bit addicted to wool applique right now!!!!
If your near central Oklahoma our next farm chick day is Saturday July 23rd if you would like to join us!

A Little Summer Time Fun!

We are staying busy as the summer time fun has began.....Sloan has grown up so much and loves baseball.  They won 2nd place in a benefit tournament and the gave the kids and coaches rings....he loved it!  Yes, that's his redheaded kiddo all grown up!
Jenn and I took the kiddos to the splash pad to cool down on a hot summer day and then we have to stop for a delicious snowcone! 

We have added another Golden Retriever to the family....Molly now has a friend "Moses" and she keeps him in sight most of the day.  Believe me that is a lot of work as he is one busy lil' pup!
The dog days of summer are here it seems!  It has turned off hot and muggy and it's always nice when you can find a shade and enjoy a big glass of iced tea or lemonade.  Danny has been looking for goats to add to the farm family and I'm hoping to have a chicken coop up once again.  Life is always busy on the farm but it sure is fun!
We will be hosting an open retreat this fall if you are going to be in the area.
Time to go find that tall glass of iced tea...

Circular Sock Knitting On the Prairie

What a fun group of Cranky Ladies...You heard me these gals are the nicest cranky ladies I know!  These gals know how to crank out socks, toys, fingerless gloves, and oh so much more.

What an honor to have them at our first ever Prairie Moon Primitives Retreats.  They came from so many different states the farthest being Minnesota and the closest being Texas.

We enjoyed lots of laughter and food!


They worked and worked on their projects!

Some were beginners....

Some were seasoned crankers!

There were those who taught!

Meet Linda and Darlene

Georgia did a lot of teaching!

Hope was making socks galore! 

Rose kept us laughing...she was oiling up her machine for speed cranking!

The girls from L&B Yarn in Norman, Oklahoma came down with yarns.....Socks That Rock were a big hit!

Couldn't have done it without the work crew....Ann and Mom plus Danny's Mom came to help in the evenings!  I am one blessed gal.

The cranky gals presented me with a bell. I am thrilled to pieces to have this hanging in the barn.



We had an open house for those who wanted to come out on Saturday to see the Circular Sock Knitting Machines in Action!


Time for a lively game to see who wins 19 skeins of yarn!

Look at Linda she is the Yarn Diva that won!

What a fun filled Retreat for some pretty special Cranky Ladies!  They have blessed my heart far more than they could ever imagine.

Prairie Moon Primitives and Retreats

It's been a dream come true!  
Danny worked and worked and worked some more...evenings after work, and weekends!  We worked together and built a big red barn.  A barn for retreats, gatherings, a store to sell goods, a place for quilters, rug hookers, sewing, applique, scrapbooking, punching, and more! 
There will be all kinds of classes. 

Maybe this little gal will one day give piano lessons!

These two might have a class available someday, too!

We have a large classroom with design walls, cutting tables, light tables, and ironing stations.

A place to sit, relax, and visit.

We will be serving home cooked meals and desserts!

A few views of the store....still more to hang on the walls and put up!

Wools and Valdani threads for applique and embroidery.

Lots of sizes of Oxford Punch Needles!

Applique, embroidery, needle punch, rug hooking, quilting, and sewing patterns.

A peek into the bunkhouse....we have 16 twin beds! 
We  have another barn with 4 more beds that can be used for a visiting teacher or 4 more guests.
There are two outdoor porches to enjoy the great outdoors!
It has been a dream come true......we will be having an open house on May 14th from 9 am to 4 pm so if you are in the area we would love to have you stop by.
We will be having our Farm Chick Day that day as well, so if you would like to bring a project to work on come join us for the day!  WE will be serving lunch and snacks so bring your appetite as well.
