the new cross stitch designs are in my ETSY SHOP and ready to ship :)
there are 2, and the first is:
|Folk House ~ ©Notforgotten Farm|
... model stitched onto my 30ct Old Farmhouse Linen
1 strand of floss over 2 threads of linen
|I added a ribbon-wrapped safety-pin just for fun ~|
I finished this design into a soft-stuffed pillow and edged it will hand cut wool strips ~
simply whip-stitched on using linen thread….
|plain & proper|
the 2nd design is:
|Berry Patch ~ ©Notforgotten Farm|
finished this one into a sawdust-stuffed pillow
and edged it will rolled cotton fabrics complimentary to the colors used in the motifs ~
|rolled cotton strips hand stitched onto the edge|
|neat & tidy|
here they are both together:
|my thanks as usual to Miss Flea (Felicia Martin) for stitching the models for me) xoxo|
Hope you like them!!!!
...since being so warm here over the weekend, all of our trees are blooming ~
here is a small redbud tree that my late sister Jo gave to me before she passed….
Charlie brought me some of his grape hyacinth yesterday from his yard ~
aren't the loverly??
|i have always loved these ~|
thank you Charlie!
|purple and green ~|
and here are some new snaps of the CATT Family ~
Momma Minew Catt
|yes, we know you are beautiful…..|
Squire Mickey Catt
Miss Boog Catt
(a.k.a. "Sugar britches")
Squire Tig Catt
(a.k.a. "Mr. Pinstripe")
We've been noticing that Minew favors Tig ~
they are never far apart and she dotes on him…
constantly chirping at him and he chirps back in return.
we think it's because Mimi lost that little tiger kitten a few weeks back,
and when she couldn't find him she went a little crazy looking for him ~
and Tig and that kitten were identical almost.
|momma washing tig's face ~ big say's "Eeeeew Mom!"|
Mickey is the biggest (he was also first born)
Boog is so small next to him (she's almost all fuzz!)
|together wherever we go ~|
she hardly weighs an ounce I swear ~
but she sure holds her own with her two big brothers!!
|tiny little sugar britches!!|
they are now living happily in the 'Opossum Hut"
(a.k.a. chicken coop where I raised my baby opossums, Herman, Flo & Petunia)
read more about them by clicking the link below and scrolling down once you get there to read some of my older posts :)
Hoping this week brings you wonderful things!!!
* Blessed be *
