Faceless but Fruitful Farmgirls

The Farm Girls were busy tonight in the Little Red Barn, but nobody wanted to show her face.  It has been a long hard day and we were all just glad to make it to the LRB for some quiet time and some handwork with our BFFs.  A girl's got to have a place to let her hair down and not have to be all gussied up, right?

But, what a lovely round of Show and Tell.  The ladies have been busy...

 Maryann's recycled apron.

 ...and her very cute embroidered pillow.

 ...and the beginning of her mystery sew-along project.

 Ms. Jill has been crocheting a wee bit.

 Henmother has begun a lovely redwork piece.

 ... and made up some really darling felt scissor keeps in the shape of owls.  Nice.

 She had her fancy sewing machine with her so she kindly offered to do up a quick project for me -adding a rick-rack edging to a pre-pieced remnant I've been hoarding, that will become a retro-looking tablecloth.  Been meaning to get to that little job for ages.

OK - one Farm Girl was happy to show her face tonight!  Our celebrity Shepherd Girl, Leslie, dropped by after a long day of setting fence posts to tell us all about her new Over the Moon Farm!  We could not be happier for her.  Until April 9 she has to pose with toy sheep.  But after that, it's the real thing.  Squee!!!

Next month, our meeting will be Friday, April 8.  Watch for the lineup of fun projects we'll work on together.  Later, chicks!

March Meeting is on the 24th

Don't forget - we've changed our monthly meeting to accomodate those of us heading to Tyler for the Wildflower Fiber Retreat this weekend.  We'll pull out all the stops on Thursday, March 24 at the LRB.  See the post below for the list of supplies you'll need for our fun sewing activity.

Farm on, girls!
