Some Updates....

Hi Folks!

well, yesterday was quite the adventure to say the least...
we drove about 2 hours to Culpepper, then onto Fredericksburg, VA
to visit Everything Cross Stitch ~
a quaint little shop in Old Town...

then went on to the Antique shops there as well ~
and SHOP we did!!

BUT...let's just say that Felicia is one Mad Shopper when it comes to finding antique sewing needfuls in glass cabinets...you do NOT want to mess with her, as she will knock you down trying to get the goods...Joan & I have learned our lesson well ! LOL she is like a mama bear protecting her cubs, but in this case, she will bite you if you come near 'her'' finds!!! hahaha!!!

(((I DID take my camera, and promptly left it in the car. uh huh. I know...stoooopid!)))

so here is a snap of my sewing room ~ freshly cleaned, rearranged again and organized:

it's qiet & calm & peaceful...
(except when Iggy comes racing past, ears flat back and his tail looking like a bottle-brush!)
I swear, I'm gonna stitch him up a little red cape for him to wear while he runs around~
he's so comical, he reminds me of a nerdy superhero!!!!

here's an update on the August 2011 Stacy Nash class here at Notforgotten Farm ~
Stacy emaile me this morning and said the class project will be a pinkeep drum and a little wool slipper!!! Oh I can't wait...she said she will begin shipping kits out the first of July ~
we do have some room available if you've not signed up yet,

so email me at not4got@aol.com if you'd like to take Stacy's class!

well, I'm headed to my stitching chair...so far today I've:
done the laundry
mowed the lawn
cleaned the cat boxes (oh,.,joy)
cleaned the fridge
(who left a sock in the potato drawer? oh...eeew...that's not a sock...gross)
and have played with Iggy the Wonder Kitten

...right now he's gifting me with a few moments of solitude

as he sleeps on my bed quilt....

Blessings from the Farm...

Great day! Love your sewing room, mine is a disaster after it's happened, not one waiting to happen. Will look to you for inspiration, like so many others do! Have a good weekend!

I can't bear it, Iggy is so adorable. And must be so happy running around even cape-less. I want to hold him!
