  3. Hi Linda!
    I have been following your blog for several months now. I also follow you on facebook. I enjoy reading about your family and the animals that are obviously so important to you. I grew up on a farm and enjoyed many of the activities you speak of. I dream of having a farm of my own, but in the meantime, I enjoy reading about your adventures with animals and gardening. I especially like to read about your little barn where you entertain guests and share your excellent hospitality. I haven't been able to entertain in quite awhile, but I appreciate the way you make us feel welcome as we "participate" in your hostessing events. You are obviously a dear, dear, friend to those around you, and we partake of your friendship through your web journal. Thank you for including us in your daily life and in your relationships, such as with Clarice. What a joy she is! I aspire to be as kind as inclusive as you are and to impart to my guests as you do so readily to yours. You have such a warm and inviting way about you. And I also enjoy looking at your creative endeavors. I appreciate your gifts!

    Happy Blogaversary! I pray that God prospers everything you put your hand to, and your next year will be more abundant and more satisfying than your last.
    Blessings on your house and barns!
    Shauna Bagenstos

  82. I just recently stumbled across your blog and have so enjoyed it! I love all your pictures and stories and encouraging words.
    My youngest daughter has just begun showing an interest in sewing, stitching and crocheting so I hope to use some of your sweet patterns.
    Our family adores chickens, so the story about the little duckling hatched by the chicken was such a fun story to share with my children. We all love it!

  83. Linda,

    Miss Clarice's apron is so pretty--glad to see you finished it. We have enjoyed all your posts. Abby (10 yo dd) loves the posts about animals. I love the craft posts. Your embroidery patterns are so nice--thank you for sharing.

    It would be nice to have you show those of us who sew but don't know the little tricks of quilting how to make a small quilted piece like a placemat or table runner.

    Please put in 3 votes for me since I'm a follower and receive your emails. Thanks!

    thing I do know is I love my daily visit to your farm almost every day and look forward to it. Thanks and congrats
    to you on your one-year anniversary. You reach many people and share the love of Christ everyday. Thank you and God bless you - I've been praying for you and hubby to find some kind of work together as you've done all these years.
    Take care and keep up the wonderful farm blog - I also love your recipes, crafts, etc. Way to go!

    Hi Linda.
    I absolutely love your site. I don't know if I signed up for the
    blogaversary or not. I am not sure how you do it. I am really a
    technological peasant as my son tells me. I don't blog or do facebook
    but just found your blog through a friend the day before yesterday. I
    absolutely love it. I know I have the pattern somewhere for the edge of
    the towel with the flowers on it. I am looking for it so I can send it to
    you. I have antique crochet books with a lot of edgings in them.

    I signed up to receive your blog in my email. Thank you for such a
    beautiful site to visit. I have not had time to read it all yet but
    will whittle away at it as I get time. I have 203 days to retirement,
    but who is counting? LOL.

  163. Well I can't think of a thing for you to change. I just love it all! Keep doing more of the same. I am really glad I found your blog.
    Christina Wilson

    Blessings, Linda
