Cross Stitch Class & Hoop Stands!


Yesterday's Cross Stitch class was a fun one!

~ Friends from near & far braved the scorching heat 
and came to enjoy the day with us and each other, 
while creating a little project ~

Hi everyone!

intense thinking going on….


one, two, three….how do I count this again??

some of us were experienced in stitching on linen ~


Heather

~  and some of us were just learning ~


Designer Becky Noland a.k.a. Death by Thread ~ stitching away on her project
… while sweet patient newbie & left-hander Patti takes her time...

~  While we slaved-away at our stitching,
'some' of us decided to test the treats….


So…..
do you boys approve?

Peter & Steve
{fellow-stitching -friend Robin's hubby}


~ in between tiny stitches, we ate, laughed & shopped…


caught Becky perusing the patterns...
We are excited to say that Notforgotten Farm 
is carrying Becky's patterns here in the farm shop!
here is a link to her Etsy shop:

Thanks to everyone who came out for the class & spent the day with us ~
xoxoxoxox to each one of you!

And speaking of Etsy ~
Our Sit & Stitch© Hoop Stands are now available in our Etsy shop:

Woohoo!!!!




a couple of the students 
purchased theirs yesterday while they were here for the class ~
...the feedback has been good!




after much consideration, we've decided to offer them
UNfinished ~ just like our Hookinpunch© Gripper Frames…





I was leery about the stain on the wood 
perhaps coming off on our beautiful linens!!!!

and THAT would be unacceptable.





We have a bunch of them ready to ship out early this week ~
 but they are limited at the moment to what is available on Etsy…
{{ you may want to grab one whilst you can!! }}


Please be careful in this horrid heat & humidity…
remember to drink plenty of water, 
and provide fresh cool water for our fur & feathered friends
until this passes….

I'm so ready for Autumn!

~ Blessings from the Farm ~

Your stitching classes look like they are so much fun! Oh to live in Virginia... So excited to order one of Peter's hoop frames....my wrists get tired holding the hoop and I'm looking forward to being able to stitch with my work resting on the table...have a great Sunday...I'm staying in the house...no AC...but I'm sitting by a fan....

Your hoop looks great! Is there a lamp/magnifier you'd recommend?
