WELCOME ~ WELCOME ~ WELCOME. I'M SO PLEASED TO HAVE YOU HERE. WON'T YOU COME IN AND MAKE YOURSELF AT HOME.

~Tucked in a valley at the foot of Round Mountain, among the graceful Maples & Oaks you will find our Little Brown House. Smoke billows from the chimney 7 months out of the year, a river rambles nearby, sheep & Cows graze in the meadows and turkey's forage along the olde stone walls. Here you will find me...surrounded by wool & cotton threads, hoops & needles on my lap & sketchpads scattered about.  This is Vermont Harvest Folk Art.

~AUGUST GREETINGS~

"The quiet August moon has come, A slumberous silence fills the sky, the fields are still, the woods are dumb, In glassy sleep the waters lie" ~ W.C. Bryant

AHHH......August, OH how I love thee. Crisp, cool mornings that whisper of Autumn, chickadee's sing, geese gather & turkey's forage.  County Fairs, fresh sweet corn.....Heaven. :~)

Tis a BUSY month with MUCH sketching of new designs happening  Deadlines to meet, workshops to finalize and new patterns in the works!! 

UNTIL NEXT TIME ~ Enjoy this most wonderful of months as Summer comes to a close we go gracefully into the glorious season of Autumn. ~ Doreen

OPEN STUDIO/LITTLE CORNER SHOPPE ~ my newly renovated Open Studio is ready!!!  I will be open to the public on Wednesday afternoons from 3:00 ~6:00 pm and Saturday's 11am to 2pm. 

Feel free to call ahead if you would like a private, punch needle lesson.  Also, feel free to contact me, if the open studio hours do not work for you & we can set up another time.

**NEW PUNCHED FOLK COMING SOON**

~Olde Sturbridge...Salem Tavern Keeper.

A blustery and cold late September wind swirled chimney smoke past the thick glass windows as heavy clouds rolled in & the sun disappeared over the mountains. Inside Salem Tavern, hot buttered rum simmered & mulled cider brewed as Olde Sturbridge, the tavern-keeper, busied himself preparing for the evening ahead. He moved a few tables & benches closer to the fire, swept the weathered olde floor, lit the brass lanterns and raked the coals under the pot of chicken & dumplings cooking over the open fire. He unlocked the door, tossed his taven cloth over his left shoulder and stepped behind the massive counter ready to greet his patrons and friends. ~ doreen frost
