~ Mid-Week Musings ~

 Hello Friends & Folk!

... can it be Wednesday again? ~ 
and did you know there is only one more Wednesday left this month?

I was never aware how fast time passed when I was younger...
Summertime was endless
days seemed to stretch on & on.
but no more ~ weeks & months fly in the blink of my now tri-focal wearing eye.

I do try to make the best of the passing time, though.
Thankfully, I've never had a "bored" moment in my life!
{who can be bored with so much inspiration around?}

Some of you who follow NFF/me on FB and Instagram ~
have seen these small embroideries I've done recently:

I really love working long & short stitches, satin stitches & knots.
they are simple stitches that work up and fill in quickly ~
chain stitch & stem stitch are favorite of mine too....

how many of my readers do embroidery?
what are your favorites?
crewel embroidery, stamped embroidery, jacobean? 
Me? I love them all, but prefer to work very Primsically and Humbly

we'll see what next comes from my needle and thread....

 we have a vine of volunteer Morning Glory's growing on our farmhouse fence...
their little pink blooms greet me everyday on my way to the shop ~

our Banana trees are growing by the foot it seems!
can you find 'Waldo'?

and I don't ever remember our Black & Brown Eyed Suzy's ever being so full and tall....
we let them naturalize in our gardens to keep our pollinators happy!


tiny, helpful friends hard at work ~


We are SO happy to see tiny figs this year too!
didn't have any last year ~ hoping they will become full and ripe before any hard frosts...

Well I am off to hang laundry {again} and finish a few more farmwife chores
before settling down once again with my needlework...

Have a beautiful Summer's day my friends!

Please be as kind to one another,
as you would expect the same kindness in return ~

Blessings from the Farm
