Sunday Musings ~

Hello Friends & Folk ~
and a Happy Sunday to you!
...what a week it's been...
filling orders for our new OLD as Dirt Primitives line...painting, sanding, aging.
working on new designs for that as well.
punching up new models for soon-to-be-released patterns, such as this:
Pennsylvania Tuilip pattern
 ...which was designed, size-wise, to fit nicely on the lid of our little
Sewing Coffer (chest)...
i love to punch!

soft, muted colors in this one ~ perfect for Valentine's Day or any day!

and I'm also working on a few finished goods for an update here on this blog
on February 1st at 10:00 am ~ you can click on the link titled "Goods from Notforgotten Farm" under my header picture  ~ I'll be offergin some finished & framed frakturs/watercolors, a few small needle punched items and a few framed & unframed cross stitch samplers ~

need to finish these now ~

playing with pencils, paint & ink ~

everything I do begins with a sketch of some sort, so I have many sketchpads full of my designs to pull from whenever I want to release something new for your amusement ~
((I carry a sketchpad with me wherever I go....))

folky folks, hearts & flowers and birds ~
Today I will FINALLY put Christmas away!!!
yepper, have had the house all decorated for Christmas still....had to keep it that way for a reason,
which I can't share with you at the moment *(neener neener neeeener!)*
but I'll be happy to start decorating for SPRING!
(this includes the shop, too!)
lots of work, but I love changing out the seasons,...don't you?

Have a peaceful Sunday, my Friends ~

Notforgotten Farm

The colors you used in the new tulip pattern are lovely and I really like the pattern. I was wondering if you would share what type of paint you used on the board. Is that acrylic? I have a new set of combs that I can't wait to try. Thanks, zoe

Love your punch needle work. I admire it from afar at the moment. It is something I want to try, someday. Your work inspires me to try. Right now I am stitching and hooking. After seeing your bee chair pad this past summer I pulled an old beginners project and have been hooked ever since. I love that others work from these blogs are so inspiring to many. Keep up the creativity!!
