Good morning friends,hope that this day finds you with a smile and love in your heart.It sure is a cold start to the day here ,was only 27 degrees when I headed out to feed the critters. They are always ready to head out of the barn ,no matter the weather .I can tell you that by the time I got to the barn I sure was wishing that I had not forgotten my gloves in the house.LOL! It is so much fun to watch the baby goats running around,trying to keep up with their mommas.The ducks amaze me for they jump right in the water,even in frigid temps.I understand that they are equipped for it but it still sends shivers down my back to see it.
I just want to take a moment to remember all of our friends on the East Coast this morning.It is such a sad situation,when I woke this morning I was thinking of all those still with out electricity and it just breaks my heart.I and so many are blessed to have a warm house and bed that it is easy sometimes to forget the less fortunate.Please remember them all in your prayers as we enter into the holiday season and each day. Know that I am keeping you all in my heart, thoughts and prayers.
Crafting has not been a big part of my routine of late but I did finish a couple projects a week or so ago and would like to share .The first one is a needle punch project ( not my design, it was inspired by a print a friend sent me) and my hat is off to the designer. Love rabbits so when I saw this I just had to do my version of it .It is roughly 20X24 inches .I punched it using wool threads, wool sock yarn ,floss,and crochet thread.The fun part of it to me was using different threads to achieve different textures.I am currently using this piece in my living room.
This one is with the flash and the next one is without .The colors are actually more muted than they appear.
The next project is a simple hooked Fall pouch.This is my design ,which I did with small strips of wool.I thought it came out ok.
I hung it off my large dough trencher after adding some fall goodies. Guess that is all for today,however as soon as I locate my camera charger I will be back to share a RAK from a special lady that we all know and love.Have a great day and be kind to one another.Hugs,Jen
