Hello Friends!  My daughter and I had a friend and her little son visit us last week.  My daughter said she would cook the lunch if I would bring a craft!  I’d been thinking about a way to use some of the many acorns to be found on our farm and since I love garlands of all kinds I decided we would make a Woodland Garland!  This was such a fun project and I want to share it with you!  So lets get started and you can make one too!

Sometimes these blog posts just roll off my fingers.  Other times I have something I’d like to share and I have it written in my mind… but I hesitate to blog about it because I hate talking about myself.  And that’s what blogging can sometimes feel like.  But the deadline is fast approaching and I STILL want to write the post that’s been in my head for two weeks.  So here it is friends!

Is It Really Pumpkin Time?

Intro Horizontal

.

Hello friends!  I’ve been pondering this thing that I seem to see every single August here in Tennessee: summer is over when school is back in session.  I’m telling you what, that seems so strange to me.  It’s 100 degrees outside, our flower garden is still producing like nobody’s business and everybody is talking Fall and Pumpkins.  WHAT???  Of course for those of you that have been reading my blog here for any amount of time, you know that I never let go of summer until the frost really IS on the pumpkin!

Hello Farmgirl Friends!

A few readers reminded me last month that they would really like to hear how our little flower farm is doing and if there is anything new going on!  So my post today is all about flowers!

He’s Our Buddy!

I think it’s time to write about Buddy.  Sometimes I find it hard to write about our cows and our little farm because it is such a small scale farm and despite the fact that I grew up with generations of cattle ranching in my blood, I still feel that I really don’t know anything about cows!  And sometimes writing about things on the farm are emotionally hard.  But what I do know is what my heart tells me!  And so I’d like to introduce you to Buddy!

Last month I got recruited mid-school year to teach a sewing class to a small group of girls in the local homeschool cooperative.  It was kind of an “emergency” situation because the regular sewing instructor had a family emergency and couldn’t teach the second semester.   I told them I would gladly do it but only if I could teach a quilting class!

Progress!!!

Happy New Year friends!  Isn’t there something about a new year that is so refreshing?  I’m not really one to make resolutions but I definitely make goals and this year is no different.

.

The last week or so I’ve been looking back at the previous year and trying to find the areas where I made PROGRESS in the goals I had set for myself.  Obviously there are some where I feel like nothing changed but there is one area where I’ve made great PROGRESS and this post is about that.
