Is greatly appreciated!!! My sister Kara has been very busy with her new business named Simplify. I have been having a lot of fun ,when I have time away from the farm, to help her and be a part of it. It is one of my new found hobbies. She has been encouraging myself to get back behind the sewing machine as long as it is for the fun of it!!!
 She is awesome and I am so excited what Kara and her husband Michael will bring out of this wonderful new adventure. I wish them much Success and God's Blessings!!!

~Closing Annoucement...

Hello Everyone, 
 I have decided to close my website down. I will still be selling on Etsy and Artfire from time to time throughout the year under the same name. Reason being I just haven't the time so much anymore to keep up with it all to do it justice. With the economy as well it is more economical to downsize. I really enjoyed all of you customers in the past it was fun sellling to so many areas of the United States and Canada!!! Loved getting to meet you all...
Hope to do business with you on Etsy and Artfire in the future!!! ;)
Sincerely, Ellen
and Happy Fall Harvest to you all!!!  We are gearing up for a crazy one this year due to the drought~ God's Blessings to you all!!!

My Sewing Machine....

Thinks I am a stranger!!! :P
This summer has flew by, 3 different fields of hay to bale for the sheep and with the drought we feel blessed to have them fields of hay. We have our oats combined and straw baled. Barns readied for winter~ So next is baling corn stalks and the 4th cutting of hay then field work which we are blessed to have a crop verses some areas... don't know how good it will be but we don't have to figure out what to do with it because it brunt up like some of these poor people are dealing with. I can't imagine how disappointing it would be... your in our prayers!!!
 Hard to sell sheep even when they are dropping them out West because of drought and having to dry lot them. Cattle also we have heard.
 I have a couple special orders to work on and hopefully get the old machine shed at farm and our garage cleaned out in between everything else.  Lots of other exciting events coming in the very near future!!! Stay tuned... ;) and God Bless!!!

Busy, Busy, Busy...

~Unbelieveably busy adjusting to all the changes in our family!!! Empty nesting, and getting used to our boys growing up and adults. So proud of them both with their new jobs and lives of independence which is in high demand for this family and a very long time coming!!! ;) Feels so good to watch them become adults and not be trapped into feeling beholding to no one~ Free to pick and choose for what their dreams and wishes are!!! It gives us great joy to see that happening for our childern and we love them dearly!!! ;)
