Friends in the garden . . .

Good morning everyone.
It looks to be a lovely day once again in Central, Ohio.
The cool temperatures will be perfect for a little tree trimming and
weeding before I hit the studio to finish up this weeks 
"Wild Hare offering".
Enjoy a few photos of the "friends" I encounter as I move about
the garden - greeting each one with a morning hello.
(Yes, I talk to them, as well as my plants, and they "talk" back to me in so many ways!)

You can find me in the garden . . . .

Hello,

I thought I would have a Wild Hare Wednesday offering today, but we finally
had a day with no rain that we could tackle some gardening. 
So, off to the garden center we went, then back home to plant, and plant.
I didn't come in until 8pm.
I woke up very sore but happy and will spend the rest of the day sewing
if I can resist the call of the garden.
Hopefully next week I'll be back on track sewing wise!

My . . .  how many Mother's Day's she has celebrated!
Happy day to you!

Coming soon . . . .

Hello friends,

I'm getting excited and a little nervous as the
From Our Hands ~ Creative Retreat begins in just a few days!

Being a little nervous is quite normal, but once the stitching begins, it
falls away as I find myself in a VERY happy place. Stitching and sharing what I've learned, 
(right and wrong)  for over 30 years is great fun and I can't wait to see the students
finished works! 
Did you know that even if you can't attend the retreat you can come SHOP?
We invite everyone to come shop our vendors on Monday evening from
6-8pm. ~ at The Buxton Inn ~ Granville, Ohio
You can't miss this historic venue . . . it's the amazing SALMON COLORED building 
on Broadway ~ the main drag in town!
We have 10 amazing, hand picked vendors dealing in such wares as,
woolens, linen, kits, supplies, patterns, pincushions, stitched finery, antique textiles,
antique sewing items & lovely finished goods!

Lauren Fuqua & Melissa Masterson ~ Jewelry & lovely accessories from antique bits
The Schomburgs ~ Wooden accessories for your home and sewing room
Kim Stout ~ Sewing accessories, buttons & sewing antiques 

Bring your husbands too (they are great for carrying packages amongst other things!)
AND, There is a lovely lounge for them to relax in while you shop!  

Hope to see you soon!
