Last month, we prayed for the rain to hold and it did and is still holding. We’ve not had more than a few drops in more than a month. If you’re the praying sort, PLEASE pray for rain at Thistle Cove Farm! Our second cutting of hay won’t happen if we don’t get rain and get it soon.
Quilts hanging on the line provided a nice side-drop to the scene while the spinning wheel faced down the valley. The quilts were made by (l to r) by my beloved Aunt Bonnie and Dave’s birthday quilt was made by me. We were all pleased with the arrangment and feel it adds greatly to a video that lacks textural softness. The quilts and animals add a touch of gentleness that softens the video and gives a more rounded picture of crafts, especially fiber crafts, in southwest Virginia.
~rain which we desperately need, dear God
~friends, some near, others far away but all dear
~a rich and varied heritage and culture
~critters, beasts and varmints – even those who do the nasty jobs
~the privilege of living @ Thistle Cove Farm in the USA!
