My dear very talented artist friend Scarlett, painted this chair for me. The chair was my daughter Brooke's when she about 7 years old, so that makes the chair 26 years old! I saved it in the basement all that time. I brought it to my friend Scarlett one day and asked if she could spruce it up for me? I left it up to her as to what should go on it. I just told her I wanted something bright and cheerful that I would use it as my spinning chair at my wheel. This weekend my chair was delivered to me with this wonderful painting on it. She turned it into a spinning perch, for me! I shall perch in this many happy hours in the years to come. Each time I sit I will take a moment and think of my dear friend Scarlett and the many dear friends that I have been blessed with. Scarlett has reminded me of that. This is very special to me and will remain so for a lifetime. Thank you dear Scarlett.

What a wonderful fall day for our tea here on the farm. We had a nice turnout of ladies that came by to chat, drink tea, eat snacks and work on or start their fall projects. Those who had not started something for fall were inspired to start. Those who had projects that needed finishing brought them along to get them going again. We shared ideas, admired one anothers work and enjoyed one anothers company. Some needle felted pumpkins and acorns for the very first time. Here are a few pictures from the day. Some met new knitting friends and some connected with old friends. All had very busy hands. I only wish I had brought the camera out earlier to photograph everyone who had come by. Next time...Thanks to all who came and all who brought baked goods. Thanks to the one hubby Tim, who came to have a beer with Mike and watch the game! All was well here on Dream Come True Farm.
