We are back on the farm and it is wonderful. God has been so good to us!!! Trying to get things done that we couldn't when we inherited it. Got to work on the big coop and decorated it for CHRISTmas!! A favorite for to do!!! Looks so cute!!
As you know we did sell the coffeehouse...so we have been home since May.....we got to put in a garden and I canned lots of tomatoes!!! We harvested our regular potatoes and sweet potatoes......we got so many and our family is enjoying the bounty!!!
For CHRISTmas I was able to do a lot of homemade gifts and one that I did for my girls were littles was these adorable pompom garlands. So cute and easy. I wrapped my yarn around my three fingers 50 times. Took it off real easy and laid it on my lap.....took a long piece of yarn...tied it from the back to the front and tied in a knot. Then cut the loops all around. After all the loops are cut start shaping the ball by cutting and making it a round ball. They are so cute and so easy to make!! Decide what string twine you want to use......I used red and white thread...you can lots of strings now in all the stores. Thread with needle....poke needle into the middle of the pompom.....you can add as many as you want....and make it as long as you like. I made each of my littles a set. Just an idea!!
I do post a lot more on my facebook site. It is a little faster for me to get something up.....but I do want to write more here on my blog also for those who don't follow on fb. I have know idea how many from here still follow since I haven't been able to post due to life and working outside the home. I would love to hear if any are though and so if you could please just leave a comment in the comments to let me know you are still out there I would love to reconnect? No pressure!!!!! Also I just put up a post a week ago about selling a Prairie Flower Farm Calendar. I reordered because they sold so fast and have some still on hand. I also want to make them available to any of you if you would like one. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know. I can do PayPal or check. I sold some 4 years ago and thought it would be fun to do one again. They are $24. and $4. shipping. I have 12 picture photos on the inside that can easily be framed. Please put calendar in the subject please. That will help me a lot!! Thank you!!! No pressure honest.......just want you to know they are here and available!!!
Thought you might like to see my Blue Ameraucana!!! She was a little last spring and she has blossomed into a pretty Momma!!! She lays blue eggs......which are so pretty! I decorated their coop......thought it turned out to fun for the girls and the Roo!
They love it!!!!
Well hope all is well......the Lord has been faithful as we walk this new adventure out!!! We are always asking what is it that He wants us to do. Praying about some things and He will lead!! Can't wait......and until then we will just keep doing what He has in front of us!!
I personally am praying for a building.......a Gathering building to do ministry with ladies and young ladies....or whoever the Lord has. I know there is a need for learning to start your seedling......planting a garden......sewing....knitting......building furniture.....to start a green house....cold frames......I have had lots of interest.....just need a place. God has the plan.....I want to be in it.....He provides. Can't wait.....the calendar is my start.....small start but we have to start somewhere. I am sure you have dreams also.....lay them before Him.....He wants to be a part of our everything!!! I want to be a part of His......He delights in that.
Praying for each of you today......lots of hugs sent your way!!!
