New Stuff- And All Around The Homestead...

 Wellll- I know it's been a spell since I popped in...  Lots always going on - around the studio and the homestead...  Tis Spring as well- so that gets me out and about a lot more too...

However- I thought I'd pop in and get up to date a little with everyone...  For starters- I finished Birds N Blooms Sampler- as seen in my last post- and that is now in my Etsy shoppe...  Both in instant download and as a printed and mailed version..  And as always- I've got the supplies needed to tackle this beauty..  I'm sooooo pleased with how this turned out...  Just loverly!!!! 

There's a link to the right- for my shoppe- so stop on in for a visit....



I've also been super super busy working on my newest design- both in stitch and punch needle..  Loving how they turned out...  My Sparrow Garden Journals...   Soooo much fun to put these together..  I'm in the final stages of the putting the patterns together- and putting the kits together for all those who had joined my clubs...  I can't wait to get this to them- and keep checking the shoppe this week too...   I'll be putting the pattern in probably within a day or so....  YAY!!!  Another fun project- for my thread friends!!!  Hoping everyone enjoys as much as I did putting them together!!!  Fun Fun Stuff...  



Soooo- other than working on projects- and patterns and all that snazzy jazz...  I of course have had a lot of projects- around the homestead- and sneaking in a little "Horsin Around" as well..  lol..  Pun intended of course...    Below- out for a quick round about on Coop...  He's such a good boy..  Ready to just go wherever...  Have a lady coming to look at him Saturday- but we'll see...  Have gotten rather attached to this guy since we got him last summer... 

 



And...  Lots more projects..  Just got done totally re-doing the inside of the chicken coop- building them a brandy dandy new - okay- rustic prim throw together awesome- palace..  lol..  We love it rough and rustic around here- but boy do we have some happy chickens...  :) 




And.....   A little bit of tree planting..  Have 4 more to do- but we're gaining...   Planted 2 willows- and 3 flowering gorgeous pretties..   Hmmm- that would be 2 dogwoods and a pinkish red- flowering tree, that I now have to go find the tag for!!!  ha ha..  Now this is a prepared post tonight- lol..  Not..  Anywho- can't wait till they all grow!!!  We're building a natural hedgerow of goodness on our road side- to block out the road..  On a mission to plant tons and tons of pretties this summer...  Getting the driveway done, planting gardens for harvest- and doing some landscaping and fixing of things..  Yup- gonna be a busy busy summer- with all the things I want to do- and work too!!!  Lovin' It....  



Gotta have our helpers- Tbone and Oddie...  :)  And John - admiring his work..  Or- he decided getting up was going to be an effort!!!  lol... 

Love them all..  :)



Anywho- this is just some of what's going on in our world..  I'll try to get back sooner to post some more goodness!!! 


Blessings
