Black Linen...& a Winner!

my friend Joan (Olderectoryantiques) and I went out on friday
for a little shopping...

we stopped in at Backstitches, a LNS
(Local Needlework Shop) in Lynchburg, VA ~

I bought this beautiful hand dyed 32ct. linen from
Birds of a Feather, called
"Black Crow"

isn't it awesome?
I love how it mimics the patina of my old Victorian black velvet pincushion...

I'm thinkin' it will be perfect for some fun little Halloween stitches,...no?
I'll show you what I come up with :)
but first I have to pull the last stitches on my
Witches Garden Sampler

oh...'tis LOVERLY!!!!

& the winner of the little Folk Art Pendant from Notforgotten Farm is...

Jean @ Prim Crafts !!!

Jeannie, please email me at
with your shipping address & choice of pendant...

my thanks to ALL that commented & played along with my giveaway
...look for another soon!!!

have a wonderful day filled withlaughter & stitches!!

Blessings from the Farm...
