Last week much of my time was spent at the goat barn because as it always happens when the weather is horrible the mommas start having their babies.Last year was rough or so I thought but honestly this has been my worst year for losing babies.It has been horrible and so sad for me as well as the mother goats.It breaks my heart to hear them crying for their lost babies.While this may all be a part of nature it is a side that I absolutely hate.Each of my momma goats have their own stall with a heat lamp but this year it just didn't seem to matter. On a happier note, I do have a visitor(baby goat) in the house,I will try and get a picture of her soon.She is a sweetheart and has really not been to much trouble so far.
Even though I have been crazy busy lately I have been able to finish a few things.Actually some of these have been finished for a while,just couldn't get the time to post them.
Remember me talking about my first big cross stitch project? Well it isn't 2015 and the stitching is finished (it has been for three weeks or more),yes I am tickled.It may not be considered large compared to a more seasoned stitcher's project but for me it was a huge undertaking.Don't look to close because there are mistakes but I am still proud of it.LOL! It is not completely finished but after spending hours in the barn, going shopping ,in the cold, to look for a frame was not high on my list of to do things.

The colors are more muted and prim than they appear in the picture.
The next one is another cross stitch piece that I made into a pillow.
It is another With Thy Needle and Thread pattern,I just used certain parts of it to make this pillow.It is my next "big "project.Here is a closer pic.
Now for another punch needle piece,this is again my design that is punched on the number one setting with my overdyed floss.The first picture is with the flash ,the second one shows the colors more true .
Last but not least of all is another cross stitch piece. I made this one into a pillow as well.Please overlook the feathers ,they are only there to show that there is a pocket .Any ideas of what I should put in it ?? I used a ticking fabric to make this pillow,love how it turned out.
Well that ends my show and tell for tonight.LOL! I hope to be able to catch up on everyone's blogs in the next couple of days. Of course there are a few more projects in the works so I will be back to share them as well .After supper tonight I found myself in the craft room cutting out wool and thinking of Spring projects.There is a new punch needle design waiting to be drawn on weavers cloth hopefully it will get started by the end of the week. To my new followers a big hearty welcome,so happy to have you!!
Stay warm and be blessed my friends.Jen
