Leaving on a jet plane!

I finally heard from Husband a little after noon yesterday. The last time I had talked to him was Saturday when his plane arrived in Atlanta. He was finally in his hotel in Sfax. He was completely worn out and only said it was what he had expected. I didn’t push him to tell me more this time as he sounded so exhausted. I wanted to cry because I already miss him so, and out of happiness that he had arrived safely.


#2 Daughter and I had watched the Delta website all night, mapping his progress across the Atlantic so we knew he had


arrived at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris safely and then on to Tunis some time around 4 a.m. our time. From Tunis he took a 4 hour bus ride to Sfax. He just said it was like nothing he had ever seen, but expected. I am sure when I talk to him again I will get more details. Unless something has changed he will spend 3-5 days in Sfax attending meetings before he goes out to the rig. As I understand it, the rig will not even arrive until May 2.

Quite honestly, I have thought of little else than him for the past two days even though friends have visited to cheer me up. Plus I will have our little grandson for several days so that will keep me occupied. Plus we are finishing up the school year and I will give end of year tests the week before Husband returns. It is a very busy time of year for us with gardening and wrapping up school. And I have several projects I want to work on as well. I have aprons to make and one of the friends that visited yesterday came to cheer me as well as talk business. She owns a farmer’s market and we are discussing classes she wants me to teach. She has put in an onsite kitchen this year and it is the perfect place to start holding Farmgirl Chapter Meetings! I will be getting with Libbie over at MJF and asking her help in getting my chapter “Steel Magnolias” off and running.

So…today will be a busy Monday. I will do all my ordinary things plus organized my sewing corner. I have projects to sew and it is quite a mess at the moment.


MaryJane's Stitching Room Book Came!

Oh my Oh my! What a beautiful book!  I have already picked out three projects that moved to the top of my list to do!  I received my very special autographed copy in yesterday’s mail in my NEW mailbox.  So excited!


Now if you dont have this treasure ~ get it!  It is available on MaryJane’s website AND of course!  MaryJane and Crew have enriched my life so much…it seems to never end.  And now she has introduced me to a new favorite quote:

Methinks it is a token of healthy and gentle characteristics,when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied.  ~Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Marble Faun, 1859



The Winds of Change are Gale Force!

Dear Valued Customers,

The winds of change are blowing! 2007 has already proven to be a very
interesting year! As many of you know, I was featured in MaryJanesFarm
magazine last year and with that came many new customers and farmgirl

Business was brisk through the end of 2006 and if it and previous
years were any indication of things to come, and I believe it was, I
had to make some changes. Positive changes!

In March of this year I was so blessed to meet and share a meal with
MaryJane Butters. It was pure pleasure… but business as well. I will
be doing a line of products for her in her Lotions and Potions
section! I am so excited! You will find them on her website very soon!

I will continue to maintain my shoppe at home so if you live locally
give me a ring and drop by. I will also continue to make and sell
Farmgirl Clean products thru this website. You will find a link below
to order Farmgirl Clean products if you don’t live within driving
distance. If however, you are looking for other soaps to mail order,
rest assured they are still available! I have passed along my recipes
and sold that part of my business to The Wash Basin. Please visit them
for all your other soap needs. I have left you in very capable hands!

Thank you for your support thru the years. Change is good. These
changes will allow me to do some other things I have been wanting to
do for a long time. I will always make soap, that is what I do. But I
also enjoyed making aprons for you, providing your coffee and tea
needs and work on my cookbook series I had such good intentions of
finishing at least one book last year but business was wonderful and I
just didnt have enough hours in my days! Streamlining my soapmaking to
MaryJane’s line and Farmgirl Clean will allow me more time for other
projects – not to mention I am designing a line of Country
Baby Clothes!

Now please visit The Wash Basin. and give them the same wonderful
support you have blessed me with!

Blessings & Bliss,
