Happy Birthday to this fella

This Fiddler (shown here at about age 4) is celebrating a b-day today. He really hasn’t changed that much over the past several years – he still loves dogs. Instead of a terrier, he has a beloved pug.


Happy Birthday with much ♥

Fiddle Dee Dee–it’s been too long!

Why oh why do I wait so long between posts?!

Let’s get right to it then….
Back before Christmas, a sweet Blogger friend sent the best gift! An awesome sign!

A long overdue shout-out (and thanks again) to dear Jenny Matlock – methinks she knows us purty well!! We love it!
{Psssst… I happen to know that Jenny has a fabulous Etsy shop as well!}

From there, where do I begin? Oh yes.. the weather, always the weather. Like much of the U.S., here in Missouri we’ve had a dreadfully cold winter. In this old farmhouse, it’s kinda been a matter of survival. And, of course, keeping the critters in good shape. It has at times seemed like Winter would go on forever. So bleak, so miserable. Has anyone else had the winter blahs and blues?

We’ve had a fair amount of the white stuff. It was pretty. At first.

Full golden moon from earlier this week.

On the brighter side, we’re enjoying a nice little break from the cold. 50’s! Today the Mr. and I enjoyed a trip to the woods with Goldie. We left our other two chubby and senior sweet pups behind so they didn’t have to struggle through the remnants of snow and ice (not to worry – the old girls took short walks later).

Today we enjoyed some nice previews to Spring. A bit of thawing at the creek…

Goldie enjoyed herself immensely.

Every one needs a break now and then though.

Lo and behold, several Robins were hanging out in the woods.

Know what? I do believe this Spring thang could happen after all. There is hope, always.

Oh – one more thing - I can’t leave without mentioning my favorite evening pastime over the past few weeks. No t.v. for me – just owl watching! There are now three beautiful and adorable little owlets on Alessondra’s OKC Owl Cam. Check them out here!

Have a great remainder of the week, Friends!

Super Cute Mini Quilt Pendants!

My friend, Patti, over at Osage Bluff Quilter is making the tiniest little hand-pieced quilt pendants. They are encased in glass and hand-soldered also. She has made several of these and they are now for sale!

I’m borrowing one of Patti’s photos to show you an example of these cuties.This is only one section that she has – several more are available. Some of these have already sold and she has the ones available now listed on her blog post.

Per Patti – “They are 1 1/2 inches square. These are two sided glass. On the back side you will see the paper piece pattern and all the tiny stitches.  Some have the pieces numbered.”

These are even prettier in person. I should know because I have a honeybee quilt charm all my own!

2013: The Year in Pictures

Farewell to 2013. Hello to 2014. Thanks for staying with us this year – it’s been a lean year where blog posts are concerned! And guess what? Tomorrow is our 5 year Blogiversary here at Flat Creek Farm. We will come up with a proper celebration in the near future.
