that came fast, didn't it?
I turned around and it was October first ~
my very favorite month...
October holds many memories for me,
of course my last post reflected one from childhood,
but there are a few more memories that are held in this month as well:
26 years ago Peter & I said I do...
4 years ago my sister Jo passed from breast cancer.
I simply cannot believe how fast time passes once we reach adulthood.
that's why I try very hard to slow down and enjoy every minute of every day ~
remembering to take the time to do something for myself.
my needlework and handwork helps keep time at bay for the moments
spent working on a project...
if just for a short while,
I can lose track of time and not be rushed or hurried
...by clocks chiming, deadlines looming or timers going off in my head.
that's why I design needlework for you ~
I want you to be able to reward yourselves with some much needed time to relax
and perhaps enjoy some stolen moments of solitude...
Little Stitches Handwork Club (LSHC)
for 2013 is coming to a close
with this, the last project:
being none found in any dictionary that I know of,
sums up the rush of the holidays coming...
...but the act of stitching the project will hopefully bring some peaceful time to you
while you enjoy the process of pulling cotton through linen ~
|Happy Thankhallowmas ~ |
the final 2013 LSHC project from ©Notforgotten Farm
a simple design,
model stitched onto my stained
Old Farmhouse Linen using muted DMC thread colors....
|motifs include: a Turkey, a toothy Jack & a Fallen Christmas Tree with Axe|
... it is a 'flat' project, with a cardboard insert and a wool hanger ~
backed with a piece of my severely stained muslin fabric...
(I chose to write on the back with a pigma pen)
|kit includes linen, threads to complete project, chart/graph, color photos,|
finishing instructions, stained fabric backing and wool hanger
The club kits will begin shipping to members this week ~
