~*Working Wednesday*~

Hello Dear Friends! I am so happy to share with you that I have been WORKING! Well... if you want to call it working. Some, myself included, would much rather call it playing.

You see, I have spent the majority of the day charting the second school girl sampler! I've just come in from hanging my linen on the line to dry. It has been given a quick walnut stain... Northern Cross Linen 30 ct Cream... and my threads are picked... so stitching will begin soon. YIPPEE!

The kiddo had VBS (Vacation Bible School) this morning and has a friend over playing since getting home... so I have had lots of free ME time. The boys are out hunting grasshoppers now... which shouldn't be hard because we have a mass supply of them in the yard!

I may take a few minutes to fun the vacuum while the linen dries... but then it is STITCHING TIME!

Oh, and just a quick reminder... there will be TWO new patterns released this weekend at the TNNA market. I will be selling the patterns in my Etsy Shoppe and via email as well. They officially release on Saturday... but I will most likely post them up on Friday afternoon for y'all!

They are the first in the school girl sampler series... ~*Victor Minor*~ Primitive Schoolhouse Sampler and ~*Olde Blue Blooms Biscornu*~.

Wishing you warm smiles...
