{ A Merry Heart }

New cross stitch pattern is now available!

"A Merry Heart"
will be up on etsy & ebay in just a moment...
{links to your left}

a sweet little sampler that measures approx.
6 7/8" x 5 1/8"
stitch count: 124w x 93h

I made mine into a rag-stuffed pillow,
then added vintage brown velvet ribbon and buttons...

I like to hang these on the backs of ladder-back chairs~

I'm also working on some miniature samplers
{1 1/2" x 1 1/2" square}
that will be encased in glass and placed in a two-sided frame...

the backs of the samplers will show scraps of antique fabrics
from my ever-growing collections...
they will hang from a length of waxed linen string
and can be worn around your neck to declare your love for needlework!
{{These are NOT prints,
they are TRUE needlework samplers,hand stitched by me!}}

I'm hoping to list a few this evening on etsy...

Well, stay warm Friends...
wishing you all a beautiful Winter's Day!

You have done excellent work. I love the name "notforgotten farm". It's a name you won't "forget".
I love the sampler. I've always like the look of patchwork - from quilts to ceramics - I've decorated everything with patchwork. Samplers remind me of the "patchwork" look, plus, as you said, they don't get boring to work.
An encyclopedia of needlepoint stitches…

Love it, Lori! Thanks for getting my order out to me so fast. I may have some questions for you on the needlepunch.

I love your new pattern! Perfect for Valentine's Day but great for all year long.
Can't wait to see your new necklaces! They sound like something I won't be able to live with out ;)
Blessings, Patti
