He's back! And The Tree Speaks is almost ready!

We saw Tangled the snake twice today! Don't tell my sister Kathy.... she's not a fan of snakes and we want her to visit us again!

Joy and Janet from Valley House Primitives say that the frame for The Tree Speaks is on its way. I can't wait to see it. I'm sure it's gorgeous!

Snakes Alive! An Update From Carriage House Samplings!

There's a new resident at our house. The girls named him Tangled since he wrapped himself up in one of our deer-proof garden cages. (We're surrounded by a herd of 30 deer). Tim came to his rescue and we saw him alive and well the next day!

And here's Tim building another garden cage... This one has chicken wire, so it won't be a threat to Tangled or any other snake!

As soon as this is done, Tim will be back to charting the antique Angess Rowlander sampler in his spare time.... Tim (a CPA) needed a break from his computer since he just survived another income tax season.

Also, Carriage House will be releasing a new design in a few weeks called "The Tree Speaks" inspired by a poem that my father-in-law sent to me... Joanne Ambrose did a great job stitching it!

And I'm saving the best news for last: 11 out of 12 blocks of a NEW Hawk Run Hollow are designed! We're very excited about how it's coming together!!
