Farmgirls For A Day



Once a month Pati Jane comes down to the farm and we spend Friday working on our projects then the following Saturday we host a "hooking, punching, stitching bee"  to all who would like to attend. 
 
We gab about things going on in our lives, share and inspire each other, and enjoy a bite of lunch and of course always dessert!
 
The day flies by way too fast but for a few hours time slows down and we enjoy the company of our farmgirls for a day.
 
So if you would like to join us sometime just send us an email and we will let you know when we will meet again....we would love to have you!
 

 
Carolyn purchased a painter's drop canvas and needle punched this fabulous tote.

 
Here is the other side....isn't is just as cute as can be!
 

 
She just learned how to hook and this is her very first piece!  She is multi~talented for sure :)

 
Judy is busy needle punching a fall piece.  She also does a lot of quilting!
 

 
Carol is a fine hooker and her pieces are absolutely the best!  She is precise and her work shows it!  She has just about decided to give hooking with a #8 cut a try! 
 

 
Well while another Carol was up roaming around I quickly snapped a picture of her hooked tote.  It is going to be a pattern on her site soon.

 
Here is the other side.  If you would like you can stop by her and Dee's site at

 
Now these two girls are a hoot!  You can just see the mischief in their faces can't you!!!
Veronica and Teresa are such fun they both are multi~talented.  Veronica has been working on UFO's and Teresa is working on a rug that Frank Bielec designed for her.  They both love bright colors!
 
 

 
Darlene and Elizabeth (mom and daughter) are fairly new to the group and we are so glad they are coming.  They are working on appliqued wool penny rugs. 

 
Judy and Glenda are friends from school...they usually have Karen with them who also went to school with them but her grandson was having his 1st birthday! 
Judy is new to hooking and is on her 2nd project.  Glenda learned to needle punch last year and she is becoming quite the puncher!
 

 
Pati Jane finished binding her rug, whipped together a penny rug, and was pulling loops on a new rug.  She also whipped together a wonderful lunch of chicken salad and a nice green salad with lots of veggies!
 

 
Danny had been hauling more cattle to the farm for restocking and escaped to the living room while we gals enjoyed the rest of the day!
He loves it when the gals come for a day....great food and he likes to visit, too!
 

 
This is the piece I am working on once again.  It is 3 foot by 5 foot and I'm just about to get it hooked.  Just like a corner and the border.  It's going to be a booger to bind!  It is a pattern by Pine Island Primitives. 
 
Well hope you enjoyed visiting with our Farmgirls!
 
Until we meet again.....Ginger
