In the Barnyard: Who are Bohemian Farmgirls?

Bohemian Farmgirl is something that has evolved over years of trying to figure out how to weave all of the meaningful parts of my life together. This is what it means to me, and if it touches part of your soul then my guess is that you are a Bohemian Farmgirl too.

1. Growing a Family--First and foremost, comes family. This may be your biological or chosen family, but whomever your family includes, it's roots dig deep and provide grounding for growth above the surface of the soil.

2. Planting a Farm--Modern homesteading is a way of life for a Bohemian Farmgirl. This may include anything from a windowsill garden to acres of land, buying local and supporting small farms to growing and raising all of your food yourself, and cultivating dreams of homesteading no matter if you live in the city or country.

3. Nurturing a Creative Life--This is the heart of a Bohemian Farmgirl and what brings us all together creating a community of ideas and inspiration. Living a creative life is the wellspring of joy that provides energy to make our dreams reality, no matter what the circumstances. And we all help each other along the way.

Stitch Dictionary Embroidery Class with Jessica Marquez at Purl Soho

Note: This post contains affiliate links. 

I just finished an awesome 2 week embroidery workshop at my favorite little fiber shop in the city, Purl Soho (  Our instructor was Jessica Marquez, author of Stitched Gifts ( Jessica taught us how to create a dozen beautiful common stitches that can be utilized in any hand embroidery project.  Her casual no-stress style translated into a fun learning environment where even experts like herself make mistakes and pull out tangled stitches.  I appreciated her encouragement of experimentation and courage to try new things.  Thanks Jessica!

Catch Jessica at more workshops at Purl Soho or on  She has an upcoming photography class on that I intend to sign up for asap!
