I looked out the window and what did I see?

15 Wild Turkeys looking back at me!  yes, during the winter months, we sometimes have turkeys come up the the bird feeders.  They can be really neat to watch, but they are skittish! if they even sense motion in the house they are off and running.  The pictures are not very good since it was still early morning, I was taking the picture through a window, and the flash went off!  But you will get an idea on them

So today is another day.  I still have a few patterns to get written up. Then I have nothing in the future looking me in the face.

Have a great day!

A long day!

It has been a long few days here on the Richards Homestead.  I feel like I have done nothing but sit in front of this computer hitting the keys.  But when you have a small Internet business it is necessary!  But I am all caught up now. I got my last 3 patterns all listed on their sites, now it just wait for them to sell! it sure would be nice.  But I have gotten a lot done these past few day. not only did I get my patterns all listed, but I now have 3 more that my prototypes are done and I just have to get the patterns written and I can get them listed as well. but once it is all said and done and they start selling I should have a lot more free time!    NOT  we all know how that goes! There is always something to do!

But I must say, we have been in this house for 20 years, and I have been feeding the birds for that long. and guess what? we finally have a cardinal coming to the feeder pretty regular! now if I can par down on those blue jays!  they are draining the feeders as fast as I can fill them!  But I do like watching my birds.  It can be very relaxing after a long day. that and a nice fireplace to sit in front of, which I am going to go do now!

Have a nice evening everyone!
And this is what my yard is going to look like very shortly! as soon as the snow starts falling in earnest.  and yes, that birch tree is really in my yard!

I'm Back again!

Yes, it has been awhile since I posted, I really have to get better that this, but it has been a rough few weeks, what with the hurricane, and then the Nor' Easter hitting us. thankfully we did not loose power like a lot of them down south of us.

so I have been busy in my craft room! I got these little critters done when there was not much else to do. The honey bees are a spring pattern. so yes, I guess that I am starting early. you can find him in "The Pattern cupboard" " The Prim Pattern" and "Pattern Mart" under my pattern name "Flower Patch Designs" 

these other three have not been listed yet, but they will be coming really soon! hopefully this weekend!

and yes, I am trying to do some bowl fillers for spring! so hard to think of spring when Thanksgiving isn't even here yet! but could not resist working on these little critters. What do you all think of them?
