Hopalong Hollow, where the Blueberries grow sweet, and the moss feels soft beneath your feet.

A quick hello

This is a quick post, as we are heading out tomorrow for Nashville to set up our first show of the year. I've been absent, with nary a moment to check on blogs or to write one myself.
With countless garden chores, (85 roots to sink, seeds to plant) AND, the job of finishing up all the critters to take to the Country Living Fair, I haven't had a moment of relaxation.
The hare and kitty above are nearly done, so they posed for me.
Needless to say, I will still be stitching on the 3 hour drive and all night in the hotel room.
Bonnets, missing limbs, rabbit tails, etc.

 Hopefully, by the time the show begins on Friday morning, I will have 11 cats and 7 new large hares and at least a dozen  mice and small bunnies.
 Geez, I haven't even had a chance to name anyone yet!
When I get home, I will have many garden posts to share, and I will breathe a sigh of relief.
Fondly from the Hollow, Jeri

  13. The folks in Nashville are in for a real treat. Kitty and Rabbit are absolutely gorgeous! Wish I could be there!

  14. They are LOVELY! I am sure you will not go home with a single one. How I wish I could head your way and enjoy a visit, or have you sit in my garden for one.
    Wishing you a wonderful show, abundant with energy and sales and laughter! And happy critters safely at home when you return.

  15. How fortunate I feel to have been able to see you! and to bring home bunny Elsa Whiskerkins! Jeri, she is absolutely darling and she has made herself right at home in my Storybook Studio. She sits at my desk, reminding me of you and your inspiration and influence as I began this journey. I'm so very thankful for your friendship. Your work is beyond compare. Enjoy your garden, now that you're home, and know how much you are loved and admired.
    Blessings and hugs and love.
