Honored ~

I received my Christmas 2013 issue of
magazine yesterday 
...and am so excited to see my little stocking pattern in their pages!!

 You can find your copy at finer booksellers nationwide ~
or you can purchase a copy from me at the SHOW here on September 21st :)

~ my little Quaker Sampler Stocking ~
and speaking of Christmas, here is a peek at another up & coming design 
...that Mizz Flea just finished:
"Mary Snow"

coming soon!
 Getting back to Hallowe'en...
on my worktable this morning ~ little halloweenies:

O U C H !
 I decided to give them
 antique hand-blown glass eyes from Germany
instead of my usual painted ones ~
....love the look!

aren't they cool?

I SEE you!
 There will be 3 little boys
...and 2 little girls ~
I should be finished with them very soon 
 ~ and will share their finish when they're ready :)

a little creepy, but sweet!
 they still need their clothes and hats, then accessories ~

Another beautiful *Sparkling* day here on the farm ~ high & dry and cooler temps.
for dreaming of Fall.....

Have a beautiful day &
*Blessed be, my Friends* 
 ~ Lori ~

My EAL came today, too. Love your stocking! Can't wait to get the pattern enlarged and start on it. I just love the brown and blacks you chose, so much better than red and green, in my opinion.

OOH! I can't wait to get my magazine in the mail.
The new design looks great but those guys are a little creepy right now.. I think it is their eyes... lol
Have a wonderful Friday!

I love your blog, and have done several of your hooked rug patterns. I am usually NOT picky, but as a practicing Quaker, having yourvstocking called a Quaker sampler just rubbed me the wrong way...I guess I am weary of Quaker this and that, using the name but not the beliefs..sorry to vent!

Lori from Notforgotten Farm said...

Please allow me to reply to the comment above :)

Hello Lynda ~ first, thank you for visiting my blog!
happy to know you enjoy my rug patterns as well ~

I would like to clarify on the naming of my 'Quaker' sampler stocking design:

I was inspired by early Quaker cross stitch samplers in designing my project for the magazine. I have always admired the history and workmanship behind these needleworks and thought the motifs would work well for the my project.

In no way was my project meant to represent any spiritual or religious belief, just the beautiful handwork of the designs from early Quaker needlework....if I have offended you or anyone, that was simply not my intention.

Thanks for understanding & Blessed be!

Oh my, those pumpkin-headed guys are so creepy cute! Such personality already. I can't wait to see the finished project. Now I'm off to my local library to check out the newest edition of Early American Life. Congratulations!!

Jeanne said...

Congrats on being featured in EAL..it's about time EAL had more needlework articles. I was turned off by the magazine last year..as I felt it was falling away from its pure roots...but I will definitely check out the Christmas issue !
