Farm Girl Friday Post No.1

I am officially a Farm Girl Sister!

It is true I am on the Farmgirl Sister Roster # 6451 My good friend Cynthia Castile Arent suggested that we join. Immediately, I fell in love with the idea of connecting and creating with others.  

Come and have a cup of tea with Mary Jane's Farmgirls .

Who are we? — a sisterhood of farmgirls. We’re country, we’re city, and every texture and stripe in between. It’s not where we live, but how we live. We get together to Chat online and form in-the-flesh Farmgirl Chapters. We love to share stories, to craft, to garden, and to nurture the next generation of Farmerettes and Young Cultivators. And when our work is done, we get together to throw tea parties, and go camping, fishing, and “glamping” as Glampers on the Loose.

Oh and wait til you meet our the lovely Hen named,  Henrietta!


She symbolizes the “can do” attitude of being a farmgirl. What are the noble farmgirl traits? Farmgirls are multi-talented, resourceful, creative, strong, down-to-earth, and generous by nature. We enjoy creating things, whether it is in the kitchen, our studios, or the wood shop. We may not live in the country, but friendship, fun, community, and creativity bloom wherever we happen to be “planted.”

In other words, farmgirls can do anything they set their minds to, sorta’ like the Little Red Hen in the famous children’s story. We enjoy the fun of getting together to create, to help others in our communities, or to share ideas.

Mary Jane believes in the power of the Farmgirl Sisterhood to change the world for the better! (And you can earn merit badges to prove it. Think girl scouts for grow-ups.) If this sounds like you, check out MaryJane’s Farmgirl Sisterhood and her Chatroom, where women connect on farming, canning, sewing, family life, kids, DIY, and more, from all over the world.


Speaking of Merit Badges! I have just completed my Beginner level of Stitching & Crafting. Oreo the cat approves! 

 It is so Sew Wonderful 
 

I put together a beginner’s sewing kit with a homemade pinkeeper owl made by my dear friend Anne Lister. Oreo was a naughty sausage and ran off with Mr. Hoot! Nevertheless, It is tucked in the tin!


 I Included:
  • Several different colors of thread
  • Buttons
  • Scissors
  • Needles
  • Straight pins
  • Safety pins
  • Thimble
  • Measuring tape 
  • Bee's Wax
  • Oh and my crochet hooks.

 

I am  looking forward to the Farm Girl Friday Post! Hope you enjoy them too!
