there has been quite a bit of interest in an evening class as well as a one time day class, so....
I have decided to try and put one or both together in the month of November.  
Each class will be limited to 8, days and times can be flexible for the most part.

This is the project I've chosen....
It is an 11.5 x 11.5 candle mat of beautiful wools and homespun backing.  Designed by Lisa Bongean. Great for the holidays and all through the winter months.  Simple to stitch, great for beginners or the seasoned stitcher.
Class will be $30 and will include all supplies needed for the mat, refreshments and a light snack!

Please let me know asap if you might be interested in the class and also if you would prefer day or evening.  
Class is held here at YellowDog Lane in the Cellar Studio!

Busy, busy.....

or so it certainly seems these days.
Wayne has been on a 7 days a week work schedule now for over a month with many of those nights being spent out of town.  That does makes things busy for Sophie and I here on the Lane and with lots less help as we prepare for our
"Christmas at the Farm"!
Our holiday event is scheduled for 
Friday November 20 ~ 10am-4pm & Saturday November 21 ~ 10am-2pm
Jot these dates down and makes plans to join us.

A reminder to all, we have no regular hours in the Barn at Saltbox Farm and haven't since the Goodwill Sale of the business in April of 2014.  We have no plans to schedule any regular hours in the future at the Barn, but promise to keep you abreast of any special days open as plans are made.

We're excited about our Christmas opening.....
lots of great handmade Santa's, trees, ornaments, antiques, uniques and much more!
As usual we will try to have all your favorite Farm Staples and lots of one of a kind holiday pieces to give your home that special touch.  

If there is anything you'd like to see in the Barn for our November sale please don't hesitate to let us know.  

Hope you're all getting a chance to enjoy this beautiful fall weather we're having if you're here in Michigan....and if not, that you're being blessed with the same wherever you might be.  

off to harvest rose hips and grapevine!!

I think quite possible my favorite month of the year here in Michigan.
Fall is my most liked of the seasons for sure....
love the colors of the season and they're so fun to decorate with.  
I have the house graced with it's fall apparel and for the first time in awhile I am able to sit back and enjoy it a bit!
I took some photos and have them up in an album at
if you'd like to visit.

I've decided on a bit of an impromptu sale in the Barn at SBF....
having some fall florals, pumpkins, pillows etc that I would rather see have a new home than to be housed in a tub.  Not to mention the fact that now that the Barn really isn't my Barn any longer....I just don't have the room to store it all!  And.....we have decided, after being gently urged by many of you to have a Christmas Opening!  That gives us even more reason to clear things out.  
Come help us....
Friday October 9, 10am - 2pm
Everything will be sale priced, even antiques and everyday at 10% off!
Fall will be 20 - 50% off
Final chance for Fall from the Barn!
