Whew- I can't believe that our Autumn Country Gathering is just a day away- panic time!!! The shop is done with just a few little things to do. Now to work on the yard, the gardens, soak pintos, etc. It has been difficult to get the grounds ready this time due to the torrential rains we have been having. I always think I am going to be ready for this event way ahead of time. It seems that however I always find just one more thing to finish or make. Ideas seem to come to me late at night when I can't sleep or early in the morning when everyone else is asleep. The weather is supposed to be beautiful and COOL this Saturday, so make plans to join us. Please visit our Picturetrail website for additional information. Back to the sewing machine- just ONE MORE THING!!!

Tonight as Hank and I (and Jared) were in the shop making some more "adjustments" it hit me that our fall event is just a week away!! It is my favorite time of year and hopefully with the promise of cooler weather - and rain- it will begin to really feel like fall. When I step into the shop, it definitely looks like fall. I have really worked hard this year to do some new things that are unique. I must say the shop looks great. It seems every year I try harder to improve and change the look - I hope you will enjoy. The other gals that will be joining us have also been working hard on their prim wares. Our fall event is always a fun day and I think folks just enjoy being out in our woods and feeling like they are stepping back in time just for a day. At least I hope that is the feeling we have created here on our little farm. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to know the things we have created bring joy into someone's home and life!! We hope you will be able to join us next Saturday for this special event. Please don't hestitate to e-mail or call with questions. Have a wonderful night!

For those of you that know us, you know that we have always got a "project" going!! Well- here is a sneak peek of the latest one. We had a stack of leftover logs from our other cabins, so we are adding one more little cabin to our collection. We hope to have it completed by our Fall Gathering, so you will have to come out to see the final product. Each time we add one, I think - that's the last cabin, and here we go again. Although this one is tiny, it will be a cutie. Keep checking back for the progress.

Did you ever have a project that literally took years to finish - or I am the only one??? I have had 2 sewing projects that have been on my sewing table now for probably 3 years. They weren't all that special, just a couple of things I started that I just couldn't seem to finish. But alas- they are finally done. I made myself take them out of the corner and just finish them!!! Below is a pic of one of the projects. Sort of a prairie crow-she will grace the door of the cabin for our fall gathering. What is it about certain projects we start that we just can't seem to finish? I would sit at my sewing machine and look at them for years but for some reason, they were not calling me to complete!! Anyway, back to the sewing machine tonight after several days of a sick child - and then me (strep throat-yuk). I have many projects for the gathering that I do intend to finish!! More later.....
