phm and cathy update!….

I am sooooo excited!  Not because of my own Primitive Handmades Mercantile offerings this month, which are my typical sheep…..

(… you can click here to see my items…)  But, because Four Ewe Farm is a member of PHM!  You probably already knew that Cathy was participating in Primitive Handmades, but just in case you missed it, here’s her link! (click here)

I’ve shared Cathy’s work on the blog before (click here for the Thanksgiving pattern she shared. Click here and here to see some of her fabulous creations), and she continues to AMAZE me with her talent!  She is super, and all her creativity is poured into people she loves.  She’s an inspiration to me!

 

wishing you a happy weekend filled with blue skies!

phm update and a stocking started….

Is it really the third Thursday of February, already?  My!  How time does fly!  Tonight at 9pm marks the monthly update at Primitive Handmades Mercantile.  I have two Spring inspired pieces to offer.

First is this little rabbit pull toy.  Antique bone buttons and vintage casters make this one fun!

I love this design from Robin of Bird in the Hand Primitives!  I backed it with ticking and stuffed it tightly with crushed walnut shells.

I’m working on a new stocking…..

So far, it looks like this.

We’re still buried under snow, but it’s supposed to warm up a bit this weekend.  I’m ready for Spring!

 

wishing you health and happiness….

I’ve received many requests for these and have kept a list of all of you who asked about them.  Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, I’ve misplaced my list!  So, I’m hopeful that those of you who’re interested will see this post!

For those of you who asked about Cathy’s fabulous creations I shared with you last time, both her pieces are from her own design.  I’m not sure if she has her patterns for sale, but I will find out!  Here’s one more piece she shared with me….

This is a two-sided Santa Claus wand.  The first side, above, says, “Merry Christmas”, the second side, below, says, “ho ho ho!”

In the meantime, in our neck of the woods it is utterly Freezing… 0 degree wind chills… brrrrrr!  Snow, snow, snow, blow, blow, blow.  Some of us know how to stay warm….

There’s nothing quite like a lap and a fuzzy blanket!

Over in our neck of the woods it’s downright…..

brrrr.....

brrrr…..

COLD!  “They” are calling for up to 9″ of snow in West Michigan before nightfall tomorrow.  Must be time to build a snowman!

hello!

This is the kind of snowman I like to make.  The kind that can be whipped up inside, where it’s warm and snug, and where there’s always a friend….

I think today’s snowman will go into my PHM shop next Friday when we have our update.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For now, I’ll keep him inside with me where he can watch the snowflakes drift outside the window.

Until next time, be warm and happy!
