~ Saturday ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!

just a friendly reminder that our farm shop is 
CLOSED until September 17th
when we will reopen with our annual
Gathering of Primitive Friends Show 
here on the grounds of Notforgotten Farm

Peter & I have been working so hard lately ~ 
bringing you different & unique things for your needlework addiction :)

here is my beloved,
taking a much-needed rest with our grand-dog Willie Nelson;


today will be another busy day ~ aside from trying to mow the wet overgrown grass, 
fixing our printer problem & kitting up club member's kits for our Primitive Punch Needle Club,
I'll be working on finishing a new appliqué pattern model today ~ 

… it's a bigger one than I normally do, measuring {before the binding} 19" x 29"

I'm calling this one 'Jack's Folly'
and I am loving it so far…

I'm using wool & cotton fabrics ~ some reverse appliqué and some double-applique too.
oh, and Valdani pearl cotton for the stitching. There will be LOTS of stitching!
I have to add more motifs {they are fun!} then a vine of leaves will tie them all together :)
then I'll choose my cotton fabrics for the backing/binding…

I'll share the finish with you soon and yes, this will be a pattern.

Hoping you all enjoy the weekend my friends!


~ Blessings from the Farm ~

I spied the blue and white quilted table topper. I have an antique quilt of that same exact color and pattern. It adorns our library. Where did you find that?
