{ 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!

~Lori~

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.

Lori,
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
